5 Simple Ways To Inspire Innovation In Learning

5 Simple Ways To Inspire Innovation In Learning | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

How can we make our classrooms more engaging, creating "spaces that help students connect, get inspired, and achieve deeper learning and better results."

This post provides five simple ideas. Each is followed with short descriptions. Three are listed below:

* Try out new teaching techniques, don't just read about them.

* Try out technology tools that allow you to work side by side with your students rather than positioned next to the board.

* Explore new learning opportunities by accessing a web portal and connecting with another classroom studying the same topic.

Which Adapter Do I Need to Mirror My iPad?

You can use an adapter and a cable to mirror exactly what's on your iPad's
display onto a projector or television screen. When picking out an
adapter, you need to know if your device has a Lightning or 30-pin Dock
connector. You also need to know if your projector has HDMI or VGA input.
Use this flowchart to help you choose from among the four possible
adapters.

Mobie is a new kind of 2-in-1 tablet developed in Finland that is capable to dual-boot Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Windows 8.1. It's being launched in a couple of months and it already looks very good, at least on paper.

So great phrase: "They didn't go to a crowdfunding website to get the funds, they just did it."      -  Respect!


This idea has been all the time the leading thought with Mobie Ltd during this three years I have known Mr. Kari Vatanen (CEO) and that`s why we are so proud to use Mobie OnEdu platforms allready in 100 schools in Finland and in the future the OnEdu tablets!

The Stunning Geography of Incarceration

The Stunning Geography of Incarceration | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
America has more than 5,000 prisons. This is what they look like on our landscape.

 

Begley’s images capture the massive scale of this entire industry and the land that we devote to it (America has less than 5 percent of the world’s population but houses a quarter of the world’s prisoners). His website, in fact, includes only about 14 percent of all of the prisons he’s captured (each one is scaled to the same size).

Bob Beaven's curator insight, Today, 2:27 PM

This article is interesting from a geographic and social perspective, because the overhead pictures show just how much we alter the land with our prisons.  What is really interesting is how the US has less than five percent of the world's population but has one quarter of its prisoners.  Because of this, it can be inferred that the country has many prisons.  Yet, what astonished me about the prisons is that they seem to be out in the middle of nowhere.  The buildings seem expansive on the landscape and dominate it.  It just makes me wonder, how much does the United States spend on building and up-keeping these complexes.

Uutinen - Turengin yhteiskoulun 7. luokka vaihtaa kirjat tablettiin

Uutinen -   Turengin yhteiskoulun 7. luokka vaihtaa kirjat tablettiin | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Laite itsessään ei ole pääjuttu, vaan se, miten sen avulla voidaan laajentaa oppimisympäristöä luokkahuoneen seinien ulkopuolelle.
- Lukiossa ja ammatillisessa koulutuksessa sähköinen opiskelu lisääntyy koko ajan, haluamme lisätä jo peruskoulussa oppilaiden valmiuksia tähän.
- Sähköiset laitteet ovat jo osa nuorten arkipäivää, mutta painotus on viihdekäytössä. Muuhun hyödyntämiseen ei ole samanlaista osaamista.
- Haluamme myös vähentää paperirumbaa, turhaa tulostamista ja monisteita.

Lukioita kuritetaan Jyväskylässä – Opetushallitus huolissaan

Lukioita kuritetaan Jyväskylässä – Opetushallitus huolissaan | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Jyväskylässä suunnitellaan lukioiden kurssien vähentämistä 80:lla jo ensi lukuvuonna. Lisäksi osa kursseista suoritettaisiin itsenäisenä opiskeluna tai verkkokurssina. Opetushallitus muistuttaa tasavertaisten koulutusmahdollisuuksien tärkeydestä.
