Google created a form, located over here that you can fill out to request Google to take down information from their search results. It currently only works in the 28 European Union countries and then four other countries Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

Sameep Shah's curator insight, June 3, 2014 11:29 AM

Be very careful about using this form. This is more about privacy and removing personal links then it is about SEO and removing bad links.

Interactive Storytelling and Coding

Interactive Storytelling and Coding | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it
Knowing that coding is an important skill for students to learn, I knew I had to come up with ways to teach coding skills. However, I knew nothing about coding, so I needed to learn a few basics. With my new found knowledge, I came up with so many fun ideas for integrating coding into my literacy lessons. Which is why I am so happy I get to share one of the first ever coding lessons I incorporated into the literacy curriculum AND it is just in time for the Mentor Text Lessons to Warm Up Your Winter Link-Up using the book Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner.

What Kids Can Learn When Blocks Get A Tech Boost

What Kids Can Learn When Blocks Get A Tech Boost | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it
PITTSBURGH — At Forest Grove Elementary School, along the Ohio River just northwest of Pittsburgh, the Rust Belt is giving way to educational innovation. In a windowless room in the library, first- and second-graders experiment with a strange teaching device that’s half computer and half wooden play table. A giant computer screen looms over the table, and a touch-screen tablet is built into the table’s surface. A dancing cartoon gorilla appears on both screens, while a disembodied female voice commands two students to erect towers. The children reach into two bins of colorful wooden blocks and oversized Legos and build.

Suddenly the table shakes wildly. The towers fall. Laughter ensues.

The kids rebuild. The table shakes. The blocks topple again.

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.

Skills for Success in a Disruptive World of Work – Work Futures | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it

In past decade or two, we have seen so many large businesses being disrupted or transformed completely by digital forces. This continues and accelerates as we go into the future that is driven by rise in automation. 


Experts predict that we are heading towards a “jobless future” and that it is both an opportunity and a threat. Even if we don’t think too much about what happens over a long frame of time, we can still agree that what bought us here (technical skills, expertise, mindsets etc) may not be sufficient to take us towards success in a volatile future. What skills do we need more of as we head into future?

6 Good Tools to Differentiate Instruction

6 Good Tools to Differentiate Instruction | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it
The secret to Differentiated Instruction is that there is no such thing as “differentiated strategies.” Yes, there are sites and books that promote lists of “differentiated strategies,” and what is provided are tools to use in classrooms. The problem comes when those resources are placed in the hands of well-intentioned educators who are looking for a plug-in to make their lessons better for all students, but perhaps lacks an understanding the differentiated instruction is based on good classic instructional practices–something I address in an Edutopia article and on this blog regarding the Formative Assessment Cycle.

When the Internet Delivers Its Own Content, What’s Left for the Teacher?

When the Internet Delivers Its Own Content, What’s Left for the Teacher? | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it
I don’t have many answers in this brave new world, but I feel like I can draw one firm line. There is a profound difference between a local expert teacher using the Internet and all its resources to supplement and improve his or her lessons, and a teacher facilitating the educational plans of massive organizations. Why isn’t this line being publicly and sharply delineated, or even generally discussed? This line should be rigorously guarded by those who want to keep education professionals in the center of each classroom. Those calling for teachers to "transform their roles," regardless of motive or intentionality, are quietly erasing this line—effectively deconstructing the role of the teacher as it’s always been known.

Meanwhile, back on my campus, I wonder about the advice I should give a new teacher. Should I encourage this aspiring educator to fight for his or her role as the local expert, or simply get good at facilitating the best lessons available? Should I assure this person about my union and the notion of tenure, or should I urgently encourage him or her to create a back-up plan?

Why Empathy Holds the Key to Transforming 21st Century Learning | #EQ #SoftSkills

Why Empathy Holds the Key to Transforming 21st Century Learning | #EQ #SoftSkills | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it
Like other aspects of modern life, education can make the head hurt. So many outcomes, so much important work to do, so many solutions and strategies, so many variations on teaching, so many different kinds of students with so many different needs, so many unknowns in preparing for 21st Century life and the endless list of jobs that haven’t been invented.

What if we discovered one unifying factor that brought all of this confusion under one roof and gave us a coherent sense of how to stimulate the intellect, teach children to engage in collaborative problem solving and creative challenge, and foster social-emotional balance and stability—one factor that, if we got right, would change the equation for learning in the same way that confirming the existence of a fundamental particle informs a grand theory of the universe?

That factor exists: It’s called empathy.
