Wil je het geluid van YouTube video opnemen dan is Peggo een mooie manier om een mp3 bestand te maken. Kopieer  en plak de link in de zoekmachine en de video wordt opgezocht. Met een paar handige instellingen (verwijder stiltes, audio normaliseren) maakt Peggo in een handomdraai een prima mp3.

Creating a rich learning environment does not mean throwing out the old for the new. An article on the new library as learning hub or is it just a return to the 18th century coffee house of The Enlightenment? Food for thought.

Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.

Addressing the whole student in education, not only the cognitive and intellectual development. Applying Abraham Maslow’s theory of a pyramid-shaped hierarchy — physiological needs, personal safety, social affiliation, self-esteem and self-actualization — to education is an ideal way to assess lesson plans, courses and educational programs.

Les 24 styles de management dans le monde

Ideas about leadership and thus management styles vary from country to country. A company in Germany is run differently from one in Japan but even in countries geographically and culturally closer  together there are big differences in how people deal with concepts like policy making, hierarchy, responsibility, obedience. 24 leadership styles summarised.
