7 Habits Of Highly-Effective Teachers Who Effectively Use Technology

Via Susan Bainbridge
Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

I think if departments reviewed their faculty, it would become clear to them which teachers should *not* be forced into using technology in the classroom.  Questionably, if those teachers cannot teach the assigned material any longer, they may be driven to learn it in order to keep their jobs, but honestly, if teachers don't possess these traits in today's world, the only thing they should probably be driven to is a different job....

Reverse Speech - Voices From The Unconscious

Reverse Speech - Voices From The Unconscious | Online Tools for Working Online | Scoop.it

"Backward messages in music (commonly known as Backward Masking) have been a controversy ever since the late 60s, when messages were found backwards on some Beatles' albums that hinted Paul McCartney had died. The controversy raged extensively in the late 70s and early 80s when religious fundamentalists claimed that Satan possessed the minds of singers, causing them to insert messages backwards into albums. As we now know, many of these backward messages were in fact examples of Reverse Speech in music. Speech reversals occur naturally in all forms of speech, sung or spoken. This site lists some examples of Reverse Speech in music."

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Great site I've continued to visit over the years. 

 

It's fascinating to know that backward messages in our speech is normal and natural.  This site has reversing machines and background information to better understand the differences between backward masking and backward messages.

Early Modern Letters Online : Home

Early Modern Letters Online : Home | Online Tools for Working Online | Scoop.it
Welcome to a new union catalogue of sixteenth-, seventeenth-, and eighteenth-century correspondence, now in public beta!

 

 

Created by the Cultures of Knowledge Project with generous funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Early Modern Letters Online — EMLO — is a combined finding aid and e

ditorial interface for basic descriptions of early modern correspondence. This public prototype combines calendars of eight contributing collections. However, with the continuing addition of metadata on letters — manuscript, printed, and digital — by other individuals, projects, and repositories, EMLO aims to become the first freely available union catalogue of these often elusive documents.

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Not sure what it's good for yet for me, but it's a collection of scans of card catalogue scans that describe letters in the colllections of Bodleian.
