Great challenge.. this is something bloggers that work and interact in Second Life ususally do. It's a fun way to produce and show what second life users do to keep creating and sharing as a community. I love this quote that STRAWBERRY SINGH picked for her post. It has a great message to enlight what leaving in peace is about. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.

BBC Learning English - Course: Upper-intermediate /Connected Speech

Connected speech 
In normal speech when the sounds /t/ or /d/ come between consonant sounds, they often are not pronounced. 
 He doesn't know. 
I can't do it. 
It's a sandwich. 

When a word ends in a consonant sound and the next word begins with a vowel, the first word will link to the second word. This means there is no break between the words, the consonant sound at the end of the first word acts almost like the first sound of the following word. 

 He doesn't_often call.

Los 12 verbos inevitables del postdigitalismo (1)

The Inevitable analiza las 12 tendencias “inevitables” del postdigitalismo, o sea las dinámicas de las tecnologías de la información que tenderán hacia ciertos comportamientos y direcciones. Las podríamos llamar metatransformaciones. Para Kelly “las 12 fuerzas tecnológicas son acciones continuas como tendencias que muestran su fuerza por lo menos en las próximas tres décadas. Son inevitables porque estas tendencias están enganchadas en la naturaleza de la tecnología, mucho más que en la naturaleza de la sociedad”  #TheInevitable, Kevin Kelly

3 Things People Can Do In The Classroom That Robots Can't | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Empty description
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
Giving a hug. By that I mean empathy, collaboration, communication and leadership skills. 

Solving a mystery. A computer program can investigate any question. But you need a person to actually generate a question. Curiosity, the starting point for innovation. Sometimes scientists call this "problem finding." 

Telling a story. Finding what's relevant in a sea of data. Applying values, ethics or morals to a situation. And the creative application of aesthetic principles.

Problem-Solving

Problem-Solving | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Learn about the benefits of problem-solving and how to include it in your teaching. Problem-solving is the ability to identify and solve problems by applying appropriate skills systematically.
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
Problem-solving is a process—an ongoing activity in which we take what we know to discover what we don't know. It involves overcoming obstacles by generating hypo-theses, testing those predictions, and arriving at satisfactory solutions. 

Problem-solving involves three basic functions: 
Seeking information 
Generating new knowledge 
Making decisions 

 Problem-solving is, and should be, a very real part of the curriculum. It presupposes that students can take on some of the responsibility for their own learning and can take personal action to solve problems, resolve conflicts, discuss alternatives, and focus on thinking as a vital element of the curriculum. It provides students with opportunities to use their newly acquired knowledge in meaningful, real-life activities and assists them in working at higher levels of thinking.
