Can't believe Im promoting a tool for the ipad but this is a really impressive app (why not on android for my Samsung Galaxy tab:o()

 

A recordable interactive whiteboard that captures your voice and handwriting. You can upload still images and talk through them using the drawing tools on the ipad tablet. Final designs can be viewed through the app or embedded on any browser or VLE.

 

A couple of good examples - http://www.educreations.com/lesson/view/multiplying-fractions/308687/ and http://www.educreations.com/lesson/view/how-to-read-a-periodic-table-element/342442/

How To Prepare Students For 21st Century Survival

How To Prepare Students For 21st Century Survival | Keeping up with Tech | Scoop.it

"As educators, we constantly strive to prepare our students for the ‘real world’ that exists around them. We teach them how to read, write, and calculate. Then, of course, there are the less tangible skills we teach; such as how to work in a team, think critically, and be curious about the things they encounter each day.

We want to prepare them to lead productive and successful lives once they leave us and enter into the realm of adulthood. But what lies ahead for our students in the future? Did educators of twenty years ago know that so much of our world would be based on computers and technology now? Could they have known what skills would be needed in the job market today?"

This post focuses on work published by Tony Wagner back in 2010 but the information is still relevant. Wagner interviewed CEOs of 100 major businesses and was able to come up with seven essential skills students should have for the 21st century (and yes, we are in this century). The skills are listed below and more information may be found in this post, which lists the skill and then discusses how to prepare students to meet this skill.

* Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

* Collaboration Across Networks and Leading by Influence

* Agility and Adaptability

* Initiative and Entrepreneurship

* Effective Oral and Written Communication

* Accessing and Analyzing Information

* Curiosity and Imagination

This is a great article to read for thought leaders. In my opinion, appropriate Video Game Art, Design, Development, Programming, along with community outreach, social media, educational research prepares students for the 21st Century. 

Mohini Lata's curator insight, May 20, 2013 8:34 AM

As technology is becoming powerful and life changing how can we prepare students for the 21st century survival. The seven survival skills purposefully apply in a classroom. This links with Using Mathematical Higher order thinking - Critical Thinking and problem solving prepares students to see problems from different angles and formulate their own solutions. Collaboration encourages students to take on different roles. Agility and Adaptability – be willing to adapt to the changes around them.Initative and Entrepreneurship - always try. Effective Oral and written communication - how to speak confidently and clearly. Accessing and Analyzing Information-

learn the difference between factual information and factual-sounding opinions. Curiosity and Imagination - teach them how to apply them creatively and purposefully. Technology has become an essential and important tool for education, helping teachers with their work and most importantly supporting the students. This also links with brief design technology and the digital technologies strand of the National Technologies Curriculum as students are taught how to use the technologies available to them.

Remote code flaws in browser fixed

 

Apple has released security updates to protect users from remote code executions in the company's Safari and OS X platforms.

The company said that the Safari 6.0.3 update would include fixes to patch vulnerable components of the browser and its WebKit engine. The update includes fixes for flaws which, if targeted by an attacker, could allow for remote code execution attacks.

 

Additionally, the update addresses a pair of flaws in the browser which could be exploited by attackers to perform a cross-site scripting attack.

 

Apple is recommending that users running OS X Lion download the Safari update through the Apple Software Update application.
