Free Technology for Teachers: 21 Reasons to Stop Saying "21st Century Teacher"

Free Technology for Teachers: 21 Reasons to Stop Saying "21st Century Teacher" | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

This afternoon I saw a blog post titled 27 Ways To Be A 21st Century Teacher. 22 of the 27 items in that list could have been 50 years ago. And 24 of the 27 items are things that I did as a sixth grade student in 1990 (yes, I coded thanks to Logo Writer). Because of this I Tweeted the following in response to seeing the list;

9 Steps to Create A Classroom Poster Using Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

9 Steps to Create A Classroom Poster Using Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

I have been sharing a great deal of educational posters here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. I love using posters with my students and I know many of you love them too. Sometimes it seems like we can not find the exact poster we want for our class and this is when we need to use our techy skills to craft our own posters. The process is not very hard and anybody with the rudimentary tech knowledge can do it in a matter of minutes. I have already featured a post containing several web tools to help you create your posters. However, I recently got some requests from some of my readers asking me about the tool I used in creating the posters I shared in my Freebies section. The answer is Google Docs.Google Docs has a drawing canvas that is really excellent for creating posters for your classroom and here is a step by step guide on how to do it. Enjoy

Asthma and mechanical ventilators… | marked for sharing | Scoop.it
Chris Wright is a Melbourne Intensive Care Specialist doctor who’s just finished studying Physics at Monash University.

"When patients with asthma are having a worsening of their condition, they find it “harder” to breathe, and when their disease is really severe, they may need assistance from a mechanical ventilator to breathe. The ventilator helps push the air in, but what about getting the air out?"

Divulgamat - Centro Virtual de Divulgación de las Matemáticas

Con la moneda electrónica, descentralizada, encriptada y esencialmente anónima, los pagos no están controlados ni tienen que ser validados por ningún organismo central, financiero o bancario

Mañana de relax. Salgo a dar un paseo, tomar un café y comprar el periódico. Pago a mi quiosquero con mi monedero electrónico escaneando con la cámara de mi móvil el código QR que me muestra. Pago mi consumición y dejo una propina al camarero de la misma manera. Y mientras estoy tomando mi café, hago una transferencia al otro lado del Atlántico, gratuita e instantánea. Además llevo encima, codificado en mi móvil, mis ahorros de toda una vida. Los transporto sin temer a perderlos o ser robado. Están disponibles en cualquier lugar del Mundo con conexión a Internet. ¿Cómo es todo esto posible? ¿Ciencia ficción o realidad? ¡Bienvenidos al nuevo mundo del bitcoin!

Estamos probablemente asistiendo a la mayor revolución monetaria desde la invención del papel moneda...pero pocos lo sospechan todavía. La criptografía matemática ya ha revolucionado el Mundo de las comunicaciones en Internet al permitir transmisiones de datos seguros, y con ello el desarrollo del comercio electrónico. Y ahora entramos en una nueva era. El dinero electrónico no es una novedad. La gran novedad que ofrece bitcoin es el de ser una moneda electrónica, descentralizada, encriptada (esto es no falsificable) y esencialmente anónima. Los pagos no están controlados ni tienen que ser validados por ningún organismo central, financiero o bancario, estatal o privado."

Free Technology for Teachers: Students Will Enjoy Learning About Animals on This Fun Site | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

This evening I gave a Best of the Web presentation to CUE of Nevada. I like to add some "fun" elements to this presentation whenever I can so the last two times I gave this presentation I ended with the Minnesota Zoo's Who Pooped? website. 

Who Pooped? is an interactive game in which students learn about various animals by guessing which animal created which pile of poop. Believe it or not, there is actually some good information about the animals that follows each round of guessing who created which poop.

Free Technology for Teachers: Ten Good Video Sources for Science Students and Teachers | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

One of the great things about teaching today is the wealth of educational videos that are available on the web. No longer do we have to flip through catalogs, order a VHS cassette, wait for it to arrive, and hope that it is as good as the catalog made it sound. Now we can quickly access and screen educational videos. In fact, there is so much available that the challenge is sifting through it all. That's why I occasionally publish lists like this one to help others find educational videos online. Here are ten good sources of science videos for students and teachers.

That's Great!: Models of Sustainability for OER

That's Great!: Models of Sustainability for OER | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

All OER have a life cycle: creation, publishing, repeated revision and reuse, senescence, death. Much effort and many resources have been expended on the creation and publishing of OER. The actual value of such resources, however, depends largely on the extent to which repeated revision and reuse can be sustained before the inevitable onset of senescence and death. The issue of sustainability is largely one of resources, and is a topic of considerable interest in the field of open education.

Wiley (2007) defined sustainability as "an open educational resource project’s ongoing ability to meet its goals." In considering the issue of how sustainability may be achieved, Wiley identified three models that he characterized as follows: 

 The MIT model: "highly centralised and tightly coordinated in terms of organisation and the provision of services, relying almost exclusively on paid employees"The USU model: "hybrid of centralisation and decentralisation of both organisation and services, and work is distributed across some employed staff and a number of volunteers"The Rice model: "almost fully decentralised and volunteers provide almost all services"

90 años sin John Venn

90 años sin John Venn | marked for sharing | Scoop.it
Divulgamat - Centro Virtual de Divulgación de las Matemáticas

El matemático y lógico John Venn (1834-1923) falleció hace 90 años. Publicó tres textos sobre lógica, su área de mayor interés: The Logic of Chance (1866) –”La lógica del Azar”–, Symbolic Logic (1881) –”Lógica Simbólica”, en el que introdujo sus conocidos los diagramas de Venn– yThe Principles of Empirical Logic (1889) –”Los Principios de la Lógica Empírica”–.

En 1883,  fue elegido miembro de la prestigiosa Royal Society.

Su ‘popularidad’ se debe a su famoso método de representación gráfica conocida comodiagramas de Venn.

Ya habíamos hablado anteriormente en ZTFNews de diagramas de Venn en Newroz, un diagrama de Venn para 11 conjuntos y en Un diagrama de Venn para los “estados químicos”; hoy os quiero traer otros ejemplos de estas conocidas ilustraciones.

Este diagrama de Venn está situado en un ventanal del Colegio de Gonville y Caius (Cambridge, UK). El texto en la ventana dice JOHN VENN; FELLOW 1857–1923; PRESIDENT 1903–1923."
