How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"From reminding us of what to pack for a trip to helping doctors perform surgery, checklists are crucial for projects that require sequential steps or a series of tasks. As Atul Gawande points out in his book “Checklist Manifesto,” checklists break down complex tasks and also ensure consistency and efficiency if more than one person is working on a project."

Using the Cloud to be a Better Student | Online Universities | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

“My students regularly ask, "What’s the Cloud?" And I never have a really good answer for them. "It’s saving and doing stuff online," seems completely inadequate… I generally end up describing a few resources that I think would be useful to that particular student…The Cloud is actually an umbrella concept covering any service or tool that is housed on the Internet…here are some of the things that you can find in the Cloud that will help you in your quest for success in higher education.” Many of these resources are also good for primary and secondary education.

The world is in the palm of your hand; what will you do?  This is a question that each generation collectively needs to ask itself.  We can consider ourselves stewards of this planet with its vast natural resources and abundant potential.  If we make choices that are sustainable for the future we will keep many of these amazing possibilities open to future generations.  (For Hi-res image click here).  Just one more reason to read Geography Education.

Microsoft Office 365 for Education now available for Free | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"Microsoft 365 is an online version of Microsoft's well known Office suite. Office 365 for Education is free for schools and is already being used by many public school districts and colleges.

Office 365 is cloud based and includes Microsoft Office Web Apps, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Lync Online.

This is Microsoft's answer to Google Apps for Education. It can be a good option for schools that are heavily invested in Microsoft apps as there would be almost no learning curve or training required. It includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Email, Calendars, web sites, and much more, including the ability to collaborate online with others and even run an online course."
