6 Great Tools to Share Your Computer Screen with Others | Educational Technology & Mobile Learning

6 Great Tools to Share Your Computer Screen with Others | Educational Technology & Mobile Learning | Needful Things | Scoop.it

There are different reasons why you want to share your computer screen with others. For instance you want to walk students through the process of using a certain web tool or installing an app, sharing your computer screen with them will allow them to see what you are doing right in your computer. This is also a good way to either give tech help or receive it from others.

6 Great tools for content curation - Daily Genius

6 Great tools for content curation - Daily Genius | Needful Things | Scoop.it

I read recently that content curation is dead. I have a few different arguments against this concept, but for now, I’ll keep it short and sweet: Content curation is not dead, and while the debate over curating content online vs creating new content will rage on and on, curating content for other reasons is still going strong.

I also agreee with this issue as good references are still a must.  Probably, we'd  stick to great curation features: short, simple and useful. Curation tools are smart mainly for two purposes:  the basic, to share only best quality  content on the web and secondly to release good content you've already produced.  The only hiccups is to be honest enough to publish only best  quality stuff.

Do you understand how the Internet works? Can you dissect a URL? How much does a terabyte hold? These questions (and several others) are answered in a number of infographics created by Abby Ryan Design and available at this website. If you teach students about these concepts this may help many visual learners in their understanding. The infographics found here are:

* Dissecting a URL

* How the Internet Works

* The Evolution of Computers

* How much does a TB Hold?

* 7 Commandments of Computer Use

* 10 Signs Your Computer has a Virus

* Anatomy of a Ninja

Have fun exploring and sharing these with your students.

Targeting 6 Social Learning Needs in eLearning Environments

Targeting 6 Social Learning Needs in eLearning Environments | Needful Things | Scoop.it

"When it comes to successful eLearning design, everybody should agree that there’s no such thing as too much information about how the human brain operates. It’s wired for social learning. Our respective environments actually shape our brains and the rest of our bodies."

Beth Dichter's insight:

SH!FT has published a new post that looks at how one can meet social learning needs in an online environment. The post includes a link to a short video (~3 minutes) that looks at "the application of neuroscience to organizational development."

The six areas are also found in a face2face environment (although there may be students whom do not experience all of them).

To create a more effective eLearning course consider these areas as you design it:

1. Belonging to a group

2. Ability to express

3. Ability to compete

4. Ability to support and be supported by other learners

5. Ability to see what's being learned

6. Excitement about applying learning

More information is available on each of these concepts in the post.

Teaching Metacognition: How Students Think Is Key To High Achievement | Needful Things | Scoop.it

"A few years ago, I came across some interesting research by cognitive psychologist Ronald T. Kellogg. He claimed that the mark of an expert writer is not years of practice or a hefty vocabulary, but rather an awareness of one’s audience. This made sense to me, and I wondered if it were true in other disciplines as well."

The gateway to European innovative learning

 

The European Commission launched Open Education Europa in September 2013 as part of the Opening Up Education initiative to provide a single gateway to European OER. This portal is grounded on the basis of the elearningeuropa.info portal, active since 2002 to support the transformation of education through technology. Today, with close to 38,000 registered users and an average of 55,000 monthly visits, it has become the meeting point for exploring change and innovation in education.

 

The main goal of the Open Education Europa portal is to offer access to all existing European Open Educational Resources in different languages in order to be able to present them to learners, teachers and researchers.

 

Open Education Europa is a dynamic platform built with the latest cutting-edge open-source technology, offering tools for communicating, sharing and discussing.

Librarians' unique role teaching skills to stay safe online | CILIP

Llandrillo Library's curator insight, February 7, 2014 5:15 AM

The internet has become an integral part of our lives; a source of information, a means of communication, a channel for sharing and a source of creativity.

However poor information literacy skills in a digital environment will leave children and young people susceptible in adult life to poor decision-making, and vulnerable to identity theft and other cybercrimes, or even radicalisation through hate sites.  CILIP believes that librarians and information professionals, especially school librarians and children’s specialists in public libraries, have a vital role in teaching children effective and safe use of the internet and pointing them to online resources. They also advise parents, carers and others with responsibilities for children. - See more at: http://www.cilip.org.uk/cilip/news/librarians-unique-role-teaching-skills-stay-safe-online#sthash.3eZmvhrx.dpuf

It makes since that learning is also changing–becoming more entrepreneurial than directly didactic. That is, more learner-centered ... than teacher-controlled."
