Students With Both mathematics and Reading Difficulties|Sousa | Look Ahead | Scoop.it

"Students who have both reading and mathematics difficulties are obviously at a double disadvantage. However, even though the reading and mathematical processing areas of the brain are separate from each other, these two cerebral regions interact whenever the learner must translate word problems into symbolic representations. Here are some strategies that are effective with these students."

Magic keywords on Google and the consequences of tailoring results - Gabriel Weinberg's Blog

Magic keywords on Google and the consequences of tailoring results - Gabriel Weinberg's Blog | Look Ahead | Scoop.it

What does it mean when you hear talk of a filter bubble? This post from Gabriel Weinberg, the founder of the search engine DuckDuckGo, discusses an "experiment" that took play on Sept. 6, 2012, when 131 DuckDuckGo users searched Google for specific words. It "was the first in a series of experiments we're doing to explore the state of Google search tailoring -- the fact that different people see different results on Google based on who they are."

The results are pretty amazing (and very detailed). To learn more check out this post, or to have a quick overview, scroll down to the end of the post and watch the video. You may also want to head over to Vimeo to watch a 2nd video about DuckDuckGo that provides a quick overview of DuckDuckGo, a search engine that protects your privacy and has many great tools! And the link to that video is http://vimeo.com/50984188.

Hi Tammy, It is NOT FUNNY AT ALL to see that YOU removed my opinion in that Curation! That is felt as Censorship for me, sorry and I don't like Censorship at ALL!!! I suggest to YOU to delete that post and to curate it from original address or YOU keep it and YOU bring in again my opinion in the text! That is Curation, not only copy&paste! Curation is made for leaving the opinion of a curator, otherwise it would be aggregation, OK ;) Have a great day :)

Struggling with educators lack of technology fluency

Struggling with educators lack of technology fluency | Look Ahead | Scoop.it

It's 2012. Technology suffuses everything around us. The Internet and Internet browsers have been pretty mainstream for ===> at least a decade. <===

 

And yet, I continually run into significant numbers of educators who still don't know how to work their Internet browser. They struggle with copying and pasting. They get confused just clicking between 2 or 3 different browser tabs. They don't conceptually understand the difference between their browser's Google search box and the box where they can actually type in the URL and get there directly. They have no idea that they can right-click on things like hyperlinks or images. And so on… [And this is just the Internet browser. I'm not even talking about individual software programs or online tools.]

Oh my gosh, yes! This article describes several people I know and no matter how many times they are shown how to do it, they always forget... So frustrating.

Hi +Tracee Orman, yes I so understand what you mean! They nod, smile and yet still don't put anything into practice in the classroom.
