Do you have an iPhone? Chances are if you are in college then you do.

MFaculty's curator insight, Today, 2:06 PM

Some might call these 'hidden features' but I prefer to think of them as simply undiscovered. Perhaps you have a favorite 'undiscovered feature you found or use on your iPhone - if so, why not share?

Paljonko työntekijä maksaa työnantajalle? - Talousverkko

Paljonko työntekijä maksaa työnantajalle? - Talousverkko | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Palkkauksen kokonaiskustannukset välähtelevät nykyään otsikoissa harva se kerta, mutta niin myös usean yrittäjän mielessä. Harvoin palkkaneuvotteluissa kuitenkaan nousee pöytään se tosiasia, että kuukausipalkka ei ole kokonaiskustannus, joka palkanmaksusta työnantajalle lankeaa. Erityisesti pienissä yrityksissä työnantajan sivukulut pyörivät lähinnä yrittäjän mielessä ja vielä useammin silloin, kun uutta työntekijää taloon haetaan. Mikäli kuitenkaan ketään ei oikeastaan kiinnosta, eikä …

60 iPad Productivity Apps For Modern Teachers

60 iPad Productivity Apps For Modern Teachers | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

But technology may be able to help. This list, for example. We’ve offered ideas in the past to helpteachers save time, but those can only do so much. As can these apps, but every little bit helps, yes? Your workload, grade level, school climate, personal organizational habits–even beliefs about what a teacher is supposed to be and do all matter more than an app, but if you’re mobile and connected, you at least have a chance.

From RSS readers to social readers to to-do lists to calendar apps to note-taking and cloud-based document editing and more, this list has to have something that can improve the efficiency of what you do.

Assuming you have an iPad.

Why Paris doesn't want a Scottish Yes

Why Paris doesn't want a Scottish Yes | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"Nothing unites different nations quite like mutual enemies. But the 'Auld Alliance' between Scotland and France - both historic rivals of England - doesn't mean that the French government favours Scottish independence. Far from it."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 18, 8:50 AM

Historically, France has supported greater autonomy or independence as a way to limit English political power and influence.  However in the era of the E.U. and greater regional integration, modern geopolitics makes this old alliance untenable as some in Scotland are seeking independence from the United Kingdom.

Kevin Barker's curator insight, Today, 5:59 AM

I was surprised to listen to the affection that Scotland and France have towards each other but I wasn't surprised to hear France's concerns about the further division of countries within the EU.  What is it about the independence of Scotland that causes the French government to be concerned?

Digitaalisten oppimateriaalien tuotantokoulutus on tarkoitettu niille opettajille, jotka eivät etunojassa ryntää ensin tekemään, vaan haluavat ensin ymmärtää kokonaisuuden ja ottaa uutta asiaan teoreettisemmin haltuun.
Homman oppii vain tekemällä, mutta ihmiset ovat erilaisia – opettajatkin…
Tämä koulutus sopii toki myös niille, jotka materiaaleja tuottavat, mm. tekijänoikeusasiat ja yhteistuotannon käytännöt herättänevät kysymyksiä.
