“ Steeds meer leraren verbeteren hun onderwijs door met elkaar te overleggen, elkaar te coachen en vernieuwende projecten te bedenken, zonder bemoeienis van bovenaf.”
Recently, I wrote an article about how to build an online personal teaching network, re-imagining opportunities to teach in the digital world and thinking about the role of teacher as independent c...
Nice visual shared by Susan Bainbridge illustrating different aspects a teacher should be building to represent themselves as learners. I would go one step further and say students should be following the same structure.
Don't forget your PLN!
this is simple and clear
In its weekly digest email, publishing platform Medium today quietly announced that registration is open to all. You’ll still need a Twitter account and an email address, but you no longer have to be invited to sign up for the service.
While there is no official announcement on Medium’s website, a blog post titled “How Do I Post?” offers a bit more detail. Head to medium.com/m/signin and sign up with your Twitter account. You’ll need to verify your email address by clicking the link in the email sent to you, and after that you’ll see a button on the Medium homepage that says “Request writing access.”...
For serious writers, bloggers and readers, Medium quietly opened to the public.

This is a real find. The free version looks powerful enough for many small businesses to use without having to upgrade to a premium package.

Adobe’s Photoshop is the gold standard when it comes to photo-editing software – the preferred tool for many graphic designers and photographers. But many of the complex features that once only a Photoshop pro could do, can now be achieved using basic, free software that comes with your computer or downloaded from the Web. Think cropping, resizing, color adjustments, filters, red-eye removal, and automatic enhancements.
In fact, a lot of useful photo-editing features are built into online photo-sharing sites like Google+ and Flickr.However, what if you want to quickly apply one or two effects without having to become a Photoshop guru? We’ve found and tested a few online alternatives that won’t require you to fire up any photo-editing apps....
Goede afbeeldingen op websites zijn van groot belang. Ze worden gewaardeeerd door je bezoekers, ze helpen bij SEO en vindbaarheid in zoekmachines.

Maar wat als je geen Photoshop of andere software hebt? Er zijn best veel online bewerkings tools en er komen steeds nieuwe bij. In dit artikel een selectie van online programma's waarmee je foto's en afbeeldingen kan schalen, verkleinen, uitsnijden, effecten toevoegen.

Clearly, there seems to be a disconnect between much of what’s written about Finnish education and reality. This is a curious matter. Yes, we all agree that Finnish education has been successful,...
In Finland there is also a development in mental health practice known as Open Dialogue. Look it up. In Nottingham there is a group of people trying to bring Open Dialogue to the UK starting locally. What is it? It is a way of treating people in distress with real care and understanding rather than sedating them with drugs and labeling them Psychotic for life with on going prescriptions. The best way to avoid side affects. It is a real education so do look up more about this and look out for MHAW in Nottingham where you can find an event focuswd on Open Dialogue in the orange leaflet out soon in Libraries and GP surgeries.
15-åriga finska elever har fått fortfarande bästa resultat i internationella PISA-studier. Därför talar man om den "mytiska finska undervisningen". Jag tror att bakom den där framgången är viljan att lära sig. De förflutna tider har inte varit lätta för Finland. Kampen mot fattigdom, kampen för nationell existens, kampen för ett eget språk. Är det möjligt att just den hårda kampen har påverkat finnarna så att uppskattningen av kultur, bildning och lärning har utvecklat särskilt kraftigt bland medborgare? Jag bara frågar.
WTF is wrong with Americans?
En hoe gaat dat mis in Nederland?
I know I can use this!
I always needed a fast way to do this. I hope it helps
Creating excellent website is must for every institute, whether it is of universities or schools. Let’s see what theme is best for your educational website.
Aardig artikel over waarom een mooie WordPress website leerlingen kan helpen om hen te betrekken bij school. Ze zijn natuurlijk allemaal online en met internet opgegroeid, dus een effectieve en inspirerende webomgeving werkt stimulerend. En je komt ze nog veel tegen, van die hoekige, slechts ingerichte websites van scholen.

Hier is ook in Nederland nog een wereld te winnen. Als de politiek zich nu eens wat minder hijgerig met onderwijs bezig zou houden en (goedopgeleide) docenten hun werk zou laten doen.
In addition to helping students acquire new knowledge, teachers today also need to guide students in developing the skills they need to become more self-determined and lifelong learners. These are competencies that can help teachers do just that.
Sadly, the youth of today are just as bone-headed as they were when you were in high school; they're just more publicly bone-headed.
"Can ICT redefine the way we learn in the Networked Society? Technology has enabled us to interact, innovate and share in whole new ways. This dynamic shift in mindset is creating profound change throughout our society. The Future of Learning looks at one part of that change, the potential to redefine how we learn and educate. Watch as we talk with world renowned experts and educators about its potential to shift away from traditional methods of learning based on memorization and repetition to more holistic approaches that focus on individual students' needs and self expression."

A particularly thought-provoking video due to the outstanding people chosen to speak in it. It was produced by Ericsson in 2012, so it is relatively current. Appearances by Stepehn Heppell, Sugatra Mitra, Seth Godin, Jose Ferreira, Lois Mbugua, Margaret Kositany and Dephne Koller. Well worth the time to watch. Think about what setting you can show this in and the types of conversations that it can stimulate.
Context, as Gregory Bateson pointed out, is the important idea.

I’m tempted to rectify my programming ignorance by pushing through what promises to be a rigorous intro to computer science, CS50, Harvard’s introductory course for both majors and non-majors alike. The course offers a broad knowledge base to build on, as you can see from thedescription below:
"Harvard has made this course available free to anyone—via YouTube, iTunes, and the course page—with a series of lectures filmed during the Fall 2011 semester. The class is led by David J. Malan, an enthusiastic young professor and Senior Lecturer on Computer Science at Harvard, and himself a product of Harvard’s Computer Science program. Professor Malan has also offered Harvard’s CS50 as a MOOC through edX. In the introductory lecture to CS50 (above), Malan promises that “this is one of those rare courses that actually squeezes your brain so much and your schedule so much that by the end of the semester you actually feel smarter.”
If you're scared of technology or at least a bit unsure about how to use it in your classroom, then these free online courses will help you out.
Many educators worry that their tech skills are not sufficiently developed to allow them to teach online. The process of learning to teach online will ramp up anyone's tech skills.
For those who need to bootstrap their tech, why not try one of these free online classes.
"Google Forms is one of the potent services Google provides for free for its users. Using Google Forms, you can very easily and without the need for any advanced technology knowledge create all kinds of forms to use with your students from contact forms to quizzes and polls. Since its inception a few years ago, Google Forms has undergone some major updates and the last one in this regard is enabling users to embed pictures and images into forms."
I haven't used Google forms in a while and this is a reminder to check out the new services it has on offer. You can now embed images, so quiz making just got a whole lot better.
Inderdaad heeft forms nu net als Socrative de mogelijkheid afbeeldingen toe te voegen. Handig
thanks John for sharing
Just another step into the future of education!
This infographic is as much about flipping online as it is about online teaching in general. If we, as instructors, can maintain the connected feel of a class, our students will feel valued.
Good ideas for any web content

"Using the iPad in a 1:1 environment requires not only some ground rules, but a bit of common language.
Since every student has their own iPad, and teachers likely do as well, this common tool necessitates some universal understanding:"
Wellicht kunnen leraren deze zomer in de digitale wereld inspiratie opdoen, nu 'flipping the classroom' in opkomst is. (zie de Volkskrant: 'De nieuwe leraar is videomeester'.
En snabb blick ger att detta är en bra översikt över bra appar att ha för elever på gymnasiet (funkar säkert bra på högstadiet och på högskolan med...)
Excellent resource for teachers who just received iPads!
Excerpted from review article on TechCrunch:"This week the teacher-turned-entrepreneur Adam Below officially launched eduClipper, a platform that allows teachers and students to explore, share and contribute to a library of educational content. In both function and design, it’s essentially a Pinterest for education, with one notable difference: Because eduClipper is built exclusively for teachers and students, unlike Pinterest, you probably won’t find it blocked by your local school.Educators and students can explore thousands of pieces of educational content, find lesson plans, resources and videos and search for the most popular content by subject or interest.With eduClipper, users can share individual eduClips (or pieces of content) or eduClipboards (collections of content) with colleagues or students while cross-posting or embedding that content on other social platforms or sending them through email. EduClips are created through the site’s bookmarklet (a Chrome extension), so once it’s installed in their browsers, teachers and students can grab any content they find on the web, Google Drive, Google Apps and more, and add them to their collection, i.e. their eduClipboards. Once grabbed, the site automatically grabs the source link, too, so that it’s easy to get back to the original content and easy to give proper citation.Teachers and students can share these clipboards so that their classmates and colleagues can collaborate on assignments or in-class activities, create groups to share these resources with and align the content that’s clipped and shared to Common Core Standards. That’s the big advantage of eduClipper over Pinterest, that content can easily be organized and annotated for each class or subject by way of these learning collections. It also has the benefit of being created by a teacher who has spent the last five years searching for and curating the web’s best educational content..."Read full review article by TechCrunch here:http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/02/educlipper-launches-its-pinterest-for-education-to-bring-better-crowdsourced-curation-sharing-to-the-classroom/Try out eduClipper: https://www.educlipper.net
Zo te zien een prachtige manier om op een Pinterest-achtige manier online info en content te verzamelen voor in de klas. Iedere leerling kan er aan bijdragen en notities toevoegen via een bookmark app in Chrome. De originele link / vindplaats wordt tegelijk opgeslagen. Nice.
