5 Quick Tools for Visualizing Time Zones

5 Quick Tools for Visualizing Time Zones | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it
Confused by time zones? You're not alone, if family from out East calling me at 6 AM is any indication. I shouldn't joke too much: I've made similar mistakes. It's easy to do, because time zones are abstract, which is why tools that help you visualize them are so helpful – they make things more…

How to Create Moodle Badges

How to Create Moodle Badges | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it
Badges are new in Moodle 2.5+ . Badges are a great way to motivate users. They are an electronic way to demonstrate that you have mastered a specific skill. Moodle badges may be awarded based on a variety of criteria chosen by the teacher. You can upload your own images as badges or get them from a site such as Badges for Your Moodle.

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, April 11, 8:38 AM

Digital badges have been around for several years, but still have a way to go until they are fully integrated and recognized appropriately in education and in the world of work.  The fact that Moodle, a widely-used and free system for online instruction, has integrated them in their system is definitely a step in the RIGHT direction.  Go Moodle!

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, April 11, 8:50 AM

Great to know that Moodle, one of the most widely used systems for online learning (and FREE) has integrated digital badges.  Badges have great potential, but they need clear definition & recognition of value in the field.  this is a step in a good direction.
