The Best and Worst Master's Degrees for Finding a Job

The Best and Worst Master's Degrees for Finding a Job, About.com Job Searching

Via Sharon Wiatt Jones
Lori Wilk's insight:

WIth so many people going online for degrees in addition to those who take traditional classes in school,  I am not sure how much advanced counseling they are receiving about their career path choice and/or course selections so this would be a great article to read before enrolling.Trends are changing and even someone who earned an undergraduate degree in the last five years might have an incorrect assumption about the benefits of the Master's Degree they are considering and the new job possibilities.A Master's Degree requires time and money so it pays to do your homework on this.

Free Technology for Teachers: By Request - Ten Helpful Resources for Middle School and High School Math Teachers | Online Education to Virtual conferences | Scoop.it

"Recently, on the Free Technology for Teachers Facebook page someone asked for suggestions for math resources for grades 7-12. That covers a broad range of topics in math, but I've done my best to cobble together a list of resources that I think will help middle school and high school math teachers and their students. I have not included the obvious option of Khan Academy."

8 Types of Infographics Teachers should Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

8 Types of Infographics Teachers should Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Online Education to Virtual conferences | Scoop.it

"Is the human brain wired to easily receive, digest, and process visual content quicker than it is the case with content coded textually? Stats from 3M Corporation and Zabisco indicate that 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual and that visuals are processed 60,000X faster than text. No wonder we all crave infographics and tend to retain information and data learned from them much more longer than when you read a text.

There are also a host of excellent web-based tools that you can use to create and share infographics and this list outlines some of the most popular ones out there.

I have also recently come across a wonderful post from Diana Adams in which she featured 8 types of inforgahics . I invite you to check them below and share with us what you think of them"

Apps in Education: Creating a Quiz or taking a Poll on the iPad | Online Education to Virtual conferences | Scoop.it

"I love the fact that the iPad can be used to assess student understanding instantly. I think these Quiz and Poll apps actually give the students the power to direct lessons as opposed to teachers making assumptions about where their kids are at in their learning. Below is a list of apps that allow teachers to create and hold a quiz or poll in their class. A great way to start a lesson to ensure you pitch the lesson at the right level or even to use as a exit poll. Find one that suits you and your students."

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 6, 2014 6:01 PM

Teachers can start using Hangouts simply by setting up a Google+ page and signing up for the Hangout feature. They can conduct virtual classrooms at a number of places; it allows a teacher to teach up to 10 classrooms at the same time. It makes classes interactive and students can ask questions whenever they want. They can use it to connect their classroom with other classrooms or to connect their students with experts across the world, providing them with connected learning experiences. There are many ways in which teachers and students can derive benefits from using Hangouts in the classroom.

"Google is certainly one of the most powerfully smart search engines out there. I underscore  "smart" as being  the most distinctive feature that sets Google apart from the crowd.  Being smart here means that it has the computational capacities to not only understand  your search query but to also predict it based on the first term you type in. Being smart also means that it works like a Swiss knife: it can be used as a word dictionary, currency converter, calculator and many more and right from the search box."
