Have you ever sat through a presentation that seemed to slog on and on? Presenters that are disorganized, dwell on trivial information and give long winded explanations that lead nowhere?

For students, the iPad is the ultimate computer - @Mashable

For students, the iPad is the ultimate computer - @Mashable | library life | Scoop.it
BROOKLYN, New York – I’m sitting on the floor at The Academy of Talented Scholars (PS 682) in Bensonhurst, watching kindergarteners create robots on an iPad.

It’s one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen, and I don’t even like children.

The exercise is part of the curriculum led by co-teachers Stacy Butsikares and Allison Bookbinder, focused on helping the 5- and 6-year-old students come up with ways to solve problems.

The first step is to identify a problem happening in the school. The kindergarteners come up with ideas like kids horsing around in the lunch line, or not throwing trash away properly, or making too much noise at recess. Students are instructed to create a robot that could solve the problem, and draw the robot on a piece of paper.

Once the robot is sketched out, the real fun begins. Using the app The Robot Factory, these pint-sized problem-solvers bring their robot ideas to life.

johanna krijnsen's insight:
the iPad is the perfect device for children because it’s tailor-made for the visual, touch-centric nature of a drag-and-drop programming interface.

My Desk-Free, Student-First Classroom

My Desk-Free, Student-First Classroom - Bright - Medium

I have been teaching for sixteen years and I have seen remarkable changes in the classroom. I’ve seen chalkboards change to whiteboards, and whiteboards change to interactive touch screens. Desktops have been replaced with laptops, which have now morphed into Chromebooks. But recent changes in education have, for the most part, been limited to tangible items. What hasn’t been so quick to change is teachers’ mindsets in regards to the physical makeup of the classroom. I would dare say that the majority of teachers utilize desks the in the same manner that they did when they first started teaching.

What Awaits Every Cheater in the Plagiarism Hell? #infographic

What Awaits Every Cheater in the Plagiarism Hell? #infographic | library life | Scoop.it
Have you ever thought of plagiarists as sinners suffering hard from their copy-paste misdeeds? Inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, Unplag team created a visualized version of… that very… plagiarism hell having nine different circles for the lost souls. Sounds terrifying? Yes, it’s really so. The souls travel from circle to circle to the deepest reaches of hell depending on the type of plagiarism crime they committed.

It’s no wonder that each circle can be too overcrowded, just because plagiarism has many faces. It’s very subtle like the Serpent from the ancient mythology. It can easily mislead you by transforming into a style, structure or idea plagiarism without you even noticing. Sometimes, it can become even more dangerous when poisoning you with an evidence, sectional or complete plagiarism toxin.

Patricia Stitson's curator insight, May 26, 11:35 AM
As emphasized in the excerpt below, I picture this as the old serfdom... Those who are fully digitally literate will live in the castle and those who are not will not. Further, they will be woefully ignorant of what is going on within those walls.  We must make being digital not just trendy but instead create a culture where people realize that it is a landscape that has become an intricate part of living on the planet.  It is not 'other' and people there are not 'those people' but rather a fully integrated part of humanity.

"“Students unable to navigate through a complex digital landscape will no longer be able to participate fully in the economic, social and cultural life around them,” he explained."
