50 Apps That Clarify 50 New Ways To Learn | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

"Learning through play. Self-directed learning. Flipped learning. Mobile learning. Collaborative learning. Social learning. It’s all here. Alone, none offer the turn-key approach to education that textbooks have traditionally turned to, but that’s part of the strength. As education technology grows, we can adapt to new learning models that take advantage of the fragmented but enormous potential of self-directed, creative, collaborative, and almost entirely mobile learning."

8 Connected Concepts of Global Learning | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
Global competence is as important for children as understanding math, language arts and science. As teachers, it is critical to examine key concepts that support global learning, consider how those concepts are connected and to experiment with ways of introducing them in the classroom in order to successfully teach students about the world.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 9, 2014 9:18 PM

This issue of the UKED magazine has one article that you should check out. They surveyed teachers and asked ideas they had found on Twitter and implemented in their classroom. The top 25 are shared in this article, and many include a link to additional resources. There are many that you will know, but there are a few that were new to me (at least, the acronyms the used were). Below is a list of five of the ideas, which they refer to as pedagogies. Check out the link to see a larger version of the image above as well as additional information on each.(And this article starts on page 19 in the magazine.)

* FiSH feedback (which stands for Friendly, Informative, Specific and Honest feedback)

* DIRT feedback (which stands for Dedicated Improvement and Reflection Time)

* Virtual Global Exchanges

* Takeaway Homework

Raspberry Pi Model A+ on sale now at $20

Raspberry Pi Model A+ on sale now at $20 | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

When Raspberry Pi announced the Model B+ back in July, they said that they’d also be producing a lower-cost variant, analogous to the original Model A. On November 10, they announced the release of the Raspberry Pi Model A+ at a new low price of $20.

Like the Model A, the Model A+ uses the BCM2835 application processor and has 256MB RAM, but it is significantly smaller (65mm in length, versus 86mm for the Model A), consumes less power, and inherits the many improvements that we made to the Model B+, including:

ESL Teacher Training in 3D Virtual Worlds

ESL Teacher Training in 3D Virtual Worlds | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

Although language learning in 3D Virtual Worlds (VWs) has become a focus of recent research, little is known about the knowledge and skills teachers need to acquire to provide effective task-based instruction in 3D VWs and the type of teacher training that best prepares instructors for such an endeavor. This study employs a situated learning approach to teacher training and explores what online teaching skills emerge in the process of collaborative situated learning, how these skills develop, and whether collaborative situated learning is an effective method of training instructors to teach in 3D VWs.

"This post seeks to compare the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education.  The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe.  The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.  The Internet of today has become a huge picture window and portal into human perceptions, thinking, and behavior.  Logically, then, it would seem that schools would follow suit in mimicking what is happening via the Internet to assist children and youth to function, learn, work, and play in a healthy, interactive, and pro-social manner in their societies-at-large."
