5 Powerful Questions Teachers Can Ask Students | Edutopia.org

5 Powerful Questions Teachers Can Ask Students | Edutopia.org | Media Literacy | Scoop.it
My first year teaching a literacy coach came to observe my classroom. After the students left, she commented on how I asked the whole class a question, would wait just a few seconds, and then answer it myself. "It's cute," she added. Um, I don't think she thought it was so cute. I think she was treading lightly on the ever-so shaky ego of a brand-new teacher while still giving me some very necessary feedback. So that day, I learned about wait/think time. And also, over the years, I learned to ask better and better questions. Many would agree that for inquiry to be alive and well in a classroom that, amongst other things, the teacher needs to be expert at asking strategic questions not only asking well-designed ones, but ones that will also lead students to questions of their own.

What a quarter-century of Internet growth looks like, underwater | WashPost.com

What a quarter-century of Internet growth looks like, underwater | WashPost.com | Media Literacy | Scoop.it
As folks in the industry like to say, the Internet is a network of networks. To help get Web traffic from here to Britain or China, you need lots of companies with lots of money to build lots of wires to carry that data. And all those fiber optic cables run across the ocean floor, where they have to survive cold, currents, pressure and the occasional snagging by passing vessels or damage by earthquake. Since 1989, the world has built 5.3 million miles' worth of underwater cabling. By 2017, we're expected to have completed nearly 850 separate cables across the globe. Two of these are partly owned by some of the biggest Internet companies in the world, Facebook and Google. The marketing firm Builtvisible took all this public data and turned it into an interactive map (not to mention a, well, deep history of underwater Internet cables). Here's what 25 years of Internet development looks like, in 1 GIF. (And here, by the way, is how you fix a damaged underwater cable.) Click headline to view the interactive map full screen--

Benefits of video teleconferencing on campus extend beyond students | PublicSectorView.com

Benefits of video teleconferencing on campus extend beyond students | PublicSectorView.com | Media Literacy | Scoop.it
When discussing the use of video teleconferencing (VTC) solutions on college and university campuses, the discussion usually revolves around the benefits that they can deliver to the education of students. In addition to delivering educational content, such as guest lecturers, experts and virtual fieldtrips, to students, VTC solutions also can connect them to campus. Remote schools can be taught via video from main campuses without the students needing to travel. Commuters, continuing education students and even students that are medically unable to attend class can watch classes live via video, or digest previously-recorded class content on their own schedule. VTC essentially creates flexibility and mobility that can enable all students to access their educational content classes in the way that is most convenient and effective for them. However, the benefits of VTC solutions on campus aren’t limited to students. The colleges and universities themselves can benefit greatly from the use of video on campus.
