How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog

How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Robin Good: For content curators who own or manage a WordPress-based website here is a great tutorial on how RSS feeds can be integrated and published directly (parsed) on any given web page. 

 

Authored by Vladislav Davidzon this excellent tutorial requires some basic technical knowledge on how to operate WordPress variables and functions and it provides precise guidance on how to:

 

- Utilize the Built-in Parsing Function to Pull RSS Feeds in and Turn their XML code into Content

 

- Divide Content into the Right Number of Columns for your Website’s Design

 

- Create a Friendly Display of RSS Content Using WordPress Loop Variables

 

From the tutorial: "Included only since version 2.7 of the WordPress software, the ability to parse RSS feeds as content and include that information into a template file is relatively new and its parameters are largely unknown even among the more advanced members of the WordPress development community at large.

 

Luckily, these parameters are easy to learn and customize, and they can turn a simple RSS feed into a great source of extra content and discussion on already-busy WordPress blogs.

 

Not only can RSS feeds be parsed by WordPress, but they can also be split up into columns and tabs.

 

This allows for feeds to actually be used as the primary source of content on some WordPress blogs, especially those that consider themselves a mere aggregator of outside content rather than a producer of unique news, reviews, or commentary on any topic."

 

 

Very useful. 9/10

Create Halloween Movies With Magisto for iPad - iPad Apps for School

Create Halloween Movies With Magisto for iPad - iPad Apps for School | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Earlier today I published a post on FreeTech4Teachers.com in which I mentioned using Magisto to create videos online. This afternoon I tested out the Magisto iPad app.

The Magisto iPad app works in a manner that is very similar to the web app. To create a movie with the Magisto iPad app you simply select videos and images that are on your iPad’s camera roll, select some music (Magisto has a large selection of royalty-free music) to serve as your video’s soundtrack, and choose a theme for your movie. Magisto is currently offering a Halloween theme that you can apply to your movie. Magisto handles all of the mixing of your media to generate a movie for you. See the app in action in the video embedded below.

Embedding Is Not Copyright Infringement, EU Court Rules | TorrentFreak

Embedding Is Not Copyright Infringement, EU Court Rules | TorrentFreak | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

One of the key roles of the EU’s Court of Justice is to interpret European law to ensure that it’s applied in the same manner across all member states.

The Court is also called upon by national courts to clarify finer points of EU law to progress local cases with Europe-wide implications.

This week the Court of Justice issued a landmark ruling on one such case that deals with a crucial and integral part of today’s Internet. Is it legal to embed copyrighted content without permission from the rightsholder?

The case in question was referred to EU’s Court of Justice by a German court. It deals with a dispute between the water filtering company BestWater International and two men who work as independent commercial agents for a competitor.

Bestwater accused the men of embedding one of their promotional videos, which was available on YouTube without the company’s permission. The video was embedded on the personal website of the two through a frame, as is usual with YouTube videos.

While EU law is clear on most piracy issues, the copyright directive says very little about embedding copyrighted works. The Court of Justice, however, now argues that embedding is not copyright infringement.

How Standing Desks Can Help Students Focus in the Classroom

How Standing Desks Can Help Students Focus in the Classroom | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"The rise of the standing desk may appear to be a response to the modern, eat-at-your-desk, hunched-over worker chained to her computer, but history paints a different picture: Hemingway, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson all stood while they worked. Donald Rumsfeld had a standing desk, and so did Charles Dickens. Workplaces are moving toward more standing desks, but schools have been slower to catch on for a variety of reasons, including cost, convenience, and perhaps the assumption that “sit down and pay attention” is the best way to learn."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 26, 9:19 PM

How would your classroom change if you were to switch to standing desks? Would it help your students who prefer to move? Would they learn more?

This post looks at one small study and the results show that standing desks may make a difference. Students (and adults) need to move. Sitting in a chair is more confining than sitting on a stool or standing. Take the time to read this post and you may find yourself trying to create your own standing desk, or perhaps you might write a grant to bring one or two standing desks to your classroom.

Millaista on tulevaisuuden lukutaitojen pedagogiikka? – Tutkimus- ja kehittämistyötä perusopetukseen valmistavassa opetuksessa | Kielikoulutuspolitiikan verkosto | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Lukutaitojen monimuotoisuus välittyy aineistoesimerkeistä hyvin, sillä niissä ollaan ”monilukutaidon” (engl. multiliteracies) ajatuksen ytimessä. Tämän vuosituhannen lapset ovat syntyneet keskelle globalisaation aikaansaamia muutoksia, monikulttuurisuutta ja kommunikaatioteknologiaa, kuten monilukutaidon pedagogiikkaa pohtinut New London Group 1990-luvulla ennusti. Perusopetukseen valmistavassa opetuksessa korostuu se, miten tärkeää on tehdä tilaa lasten omalle asiantuntijuudelle ja toimijuudelle, koska lukemisen ja kirjoittamisen mielekkyyttä ja merkityksellisyyttä uudella kielellä on muutoin vaikea tavoittaa.
