Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 23, 10:41 PM

I do enjoy a good current events map quiz.  Yes, geography is about more than just locating things on the map, but that is still a pretty foundational spatial-thinking skill to build upon. You can zoom it to place the points, but this is a very hard quiz that is not for novices (if you can get more than 130 points, you'll earn the title geo-champ).  If you want some more quizzes with perhaps more direct applicability in the classroom, click here for online regional quizzes.

Harold Jarche is a thinker.  His ideas help clarify how to swim in the sea of digital information that online teachers and learners must navigate.  Intended for a business audience, Jarche's PKM approach also applies to anyone interested in the flow of information and how to transform that information into action.

Florence Gilzene-Cheese's curator insight, August 22, 12:11 PM

The idea from the Seek, Sense, Share PKM network that speaks to the development of a framework for professional development. PKM is driven by metacognition and allows the individual to seek to fill identified knowledge gaps and make sense of the information that is available and further share the knowledge that is gained. This info-graphic supports the framework and identifies the flow among the ideas in the Seek, Sense, Share process of PKM.
