Hi David, Thank you for taking time to pass by and share your thoughts. I'm afraid, however, I don't quite understand what posts you are referring to. I am certain that educators will know which tool to use according to their context.

Dream Big, A Rubik’s Cubes Mosaic Sculpture of Martin Luther King Jr. | Interesting Education Links | Scoop.it

Terry says...Sometimes when you teach you just chum the water with bloody fish just to see what surfaces.  Yes, I think of this as tech pedagogy.  It shows us the beauty of repurposing, of taking something that is not a pencil and cannot make a mark then using it to inspire as art.  The title of the piece is "Dream Big" It shows us that iconoclastic dreams are not only worthy but necessary for the evolution of the species.

 

I wonder how much the installation weighs?

More Shame for the College Board

More Shame for the College Board | Interesting Education Links | Scoop.it

 

I'm currently attending a CB Institute, and I believe whole heartedly in their approach to many things regarding teaching and student success.   I have certainly benefited from their training and approach. However, I hate the current (neverending) trend of education bashing, and I'm sorry that they have joined the bandwagon.  Robin

 

 

 

 

Readers may recall that I posted a blog criticizing the College Board for its shameful campaign attacking American education. The ad says that the education system is “crumbling” and ca...

The Teacher’s Quick Guide To Pinterest | Edudemic

The Teacher’s Quick Guide To Pinterest | Edudemic | Interesting Education Links | Scoop.it

Pinterest, created in 2009 and launched in March of 2010, has been ranked 10th out of the top visited social networking sites across the world, allowing users to search for pins with a specific theme or subject. According to Pearson (2011), teachers can easily bookmark or “pin” lesson plans across the web for a later date, organize resources for the classroom, share unique ideas, and allow for collaboration with students, parents, and colleagues. A good example of pinning can be found in a blog-post entitled 30 Inspiring Pinterest Pins for Teachers (2012) where the author shares 30 specific pin boards covering everything from arts and crafts to methods of classroom management through visually stimulating images. While perusing these ideas, I decided to create a group board for my own students to collaborate with one another and other teachers from around the world.
