Two Great Periodic Tables of Educational iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Two Great Periodic Tables of Educational iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Innovating Ideas in Education | Scoop.it

"Today as I was wading through my Twitter feeds I came across a link to the periodic table of iPad apps created by ICTEvangelist.Upon checking this work I learned that it is inspired by a relatively similar work done by Sean Junkins which I have featured in an earlier post in this blog. Different as they are, both of these periodic tables provide an interesting collection of educational iPad apps you could probably consider using with your students.These apps are arranged under different categories and each of these categories  has a unique colour code to help you identify apps belonging it. The labelling of the categories in these two periodic tables slightly differ from one another with ICTEvangelist tending to repurpose his work for UK-based educational settings."

Naomi Sekeres's curator insight, September 2, 2013 4:58 PM

My daughter came home with a Maths assignment. It's theme - "Tax in Australia". The focus was determining tax structures for each income level of their 4 candidates- a school kid working part time, a mum working 30 hours a week, a self employed trades person and an executive working in his two companies. The problem was they were using a tax booklet with tax rates from 2008 and there was no explanation of how to actually pay the tax. No explanation of what GST is and what should and shouldn't be claimed and why. I understand that these are complex issues however shouldn't our kids have a basic understanding of this when they leave school? After all, they pay tax for the rest of their life. Money, finance, debt, tax and how to plan financially should be taught at school, not how to use an Ipad Iphone etc. Children educate themselves with these devices. Budgeting and the use of money however is something that should be taught...

6 year project to map how nerve connections develop in babies' brains while still in the womb and after birth

6 year project to map how nerve connections develop in babies' brains while still in the womb and after birth | Innovating Ideas in Education | Scoop.it
Scientists in the UK have launched a six-year project to create the first map of babies' brain in a critical period of growth in the womb and after birth.

 

By the time a baby takes its first breath many of the key pathways between nerves have already been made. And some of these will help determine how a baby thinks or sees the world, and may have a role to play in the development of conditions such as autism, scientists say.

 

But how this rich neural network assembles in the baby before birth is relatively unchartered territory.

 

Researchers from Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, King's College London, Imperial College and Oxford University aim to produce a dynamic wiring diagram of how the brain grows, at a level of detail that they say has been impossible until now.

 

They hope that by charting the journeys of bundles of nerves in the final three months of pregnancy, doctors will be able to understand more about how they can help in situations when this process goes wrong.

 

Prof David Edwards, director of the Centre for the Developing Brain, who is leading the research, says: "There is a distressing number of children in our society who grow up with problems because of things that happen to them around the time of birth or just before birth.

 

"It is very important to be able to scan babies before they are born, because we can capture a period when an awful lot is changing inside the brain, and it is a time when a great many of the things that might be going wrong do seem to be going wrong."

 

The study - known as the Developing Human Connectome Project - hopes to look at more than 1,500 babies, studying many aspects of their neurological development.

 

By examining the brains of babies while they are still growing in the womb, as well as those born prematurely and at full term, the scientists will try to define baselines of normal development and investigate how these may be affected by problems around birth.

 

Researchers aim to understand more about how the brain is affected by prematurity

And they plan to share their map with the wider research community.
