Understanding metering, part one: introduction

Understanding metering, part one: introduction | On education | Scoop.it

One of the more important – yet almost always overlooked – aspects of camera operation is metering. Simply put, the meter determines what your final exposure is, and how bright or dark your image looks relative to the scene. Unless you are shooting manual – and even then – the camera’s exposure is determined by the meter. Add the fact that the eyes of a viewer tend to go to the brightest and/ or highest contrast portions of an image first (i.e. this should be your subject) – and it’s clear to see why it’s absolutely critical to understand both how metering works as a fundamental concept and any camera-specific peccadilloes that might exist. The last thing you want is to find that your camera drastically underexposed a once-in-a-lifetime shot of some critically important event because you didn’t know (or forgot) that the meter was extremely affected by point light sources*.

How One Teacher Achieved Insane Reading Growth Last Year (EdSurge News)

How One Teacher Achieved Insane Reading Growth Last Year (EdSurge News) | On education | Scoop.it

by Matt Bowman

 

"Tracy Fischetti's high school students improved their reading level scores about three times as much as expected last year, according to the state’s 2013 test scores.

 

"Of all the English teachers in Florida, she scored the highest on the state's Value Added Measure (VAM). Interestingly, Fischetti had no idea of her distinction until I emailed her in early March. "I am not sure how you would have gotten wind of my classroom chaos in California," she wrote. The metric isn't viewed positively in her district.

 

"I'm sure many readers' jaws clench at the mention of VAM Scores. I'm going to sidestep that controversy for this post except to note that, inadequate as test scores are for assessing educational quality, they're not a bad starting point to discover promising practices. No matter what you think of VAM, Fischetti and her students have accomplished something impressive, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the time she took to share her approach with me.

 

"There are three practices that Fischetti employs consistently that seem to account for a lot of her success".

Who's Framed Personalized Learning?

Why personalized learning is all about the learner, starting with the learner. It's time to frame it around the stories where learners are owning and driving their learning.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, August 25, 10:49 AM
Many teachers that partner with their learners and change how they teach told us they would never go back to traditional teaching. So we decided to ask a few of our friends what they think about framing personalized learning

"Personalized learning primarily involves changing the role of a child from a passive-oriented student to an active-oriented learner. Any process, practice, system or initiative which labels itself 'personalized,' but does not change the role of the learner to have more voice and choice in their own learning isn't fully personalized.  Much of what is being categorized as personalized learning today involves technology integration and enhancements in the role of the teacher, without necessarily empowering the learner to discover, follow and cultivate their own passions and take an ever-increasing role for the privilege and responsibility of learning."  - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2014/08/whos-framed-personalized-learning.html#sthash.MkbRFiBY.dpuf

"Hard Times" is the theme for this year's annual meeting of the American Sociological Association. Many sessions -- including those on higher education -- focus on issues of income inequality. Sociologists presented numerous studies on various ways that policies and practices in American higher education hinder the success of low-income students. Several of the papers suggested that key inequities are not that hard to find, but don't necessarily attract attention.

"If you're looking to buy a streaming box, it's likely you'll end up choosing between three products: Chromecast, Roku, and Apple TV.

 

"And if you're a frequent Amazon.com visitor, there may be a fouth option intruding into your thoughts:Fire TV.


"These four aren't the only streamers on the market, but they're the most popular and for good reason -- they all cost under $100 and offer a lot of value for your money. Whichever one you buy, chances are you'll use it all the time."

"Google’s advance in the education field has brought to schools around the globe affordable devices and effortless access to educational content. Google’s latest solution for learning is called Google Classroom. Although Google Classroom will be available at the beginning of the school year to all schools that have adopted Google Apps for Education, the Mountain View based company granted access to Google Classroom to a select few individuals in July. I was fortunate enough to be one of these early adopters/testers of Google Classroom, and I can honestly say that I am impressed by its simplicity, and its ability to seamlessly integrate Google Docs, Sheets,Drive, Gmail, and more in order to provide a wonderful and highly productive user experience."
