I can can hear the words pronounced too. Then to practice I type and or speak translations. The activities start out with simple words and phrases. As I become more proficient, Duolingo gives me more challenging phrases. To help me track my progress Duolingo awards me point and virtual badges."

5 (less traditional) ways to create and share knowledge online

5 (less traditional) ways to create and share knowledge online | open resource materials in Teacher-preparation | Scoop.it

The communication of knowledge and ideas is intrinsic to the human condition. Our earliest ancestors had a rich oral tradition, through which they passed on what they knew about the world, often across great distances.

 

Today, the avenues available to our quest to gain and share knowledge are boundless, but I’d like to share with you five of my own personal favorites.

I love it when others share information with me, whether it be business, political, in which I am not all that much into, but it still helps to know what's happening in the world of politics, or whether it be history of old or new, knowledge is the key to life and especially education.

Benefits of Online, Face-to-Face Professional Development Similar, Study Finds

Benefits of Online, Face-to-Face Professional Development Similar, Study Finds | open resource materials in Teacher-preparation | Scoop.it

Researchers found similar effects on student learning and teacher behavior regardless of whether teachers took part in online or face-to-face professional development.

 

Fishman said that administrators and policymakers should see the findings as further evidence that online teacher professional development, while no silver bullet, can be a viable alternative to the traditional model.

 

"There's some hesitation on the part of teachers who think that online [professional development] is somehow less valuable to them because of a lack of personal connection," Fishman said.

 

"I think this study may make them a little more optimistic."

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | open resource materials in Teacher-preparation | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

Blackmagic Cinema Camera vs. Red Scarlet – Zeiss vs. Samyang Part 2. By Frank Glencairn

Blackmagic Cinema Camera vs. Red Scarlet – Zeiss vs. Samyang Part 2. By Frank Glencairn | open resource materials in Teacher-preparation | Scoop.it

Posted by Frank Glencairn on May 13, 2013 • 

 

"In part 2 of our comparison, Felix Patzke of Heimspiel and I, looked at the differences of famous Zeiss cineglass and pretty affordable Samyang (Rokinon/Walimex) cineprimes. As in our first article, we where quite surprised, that the differences are not as huge as we thought.


Felix just got his hands on a set of wonderful Zeiss Superspeed glass. These are the older (MKII) lenses with the typical triangle bokeh and the aperture and focus rings are oil dampened. They are famous for their special look and the way they render microcontrast.

 

In the other corner we had a set of Samyang (Walimex/Rokinon) lenses. When they came out, they generated quite a stir, because of their speed and optical quality for the buck.
Samyang produces those lenses in two different flavors. A traditional version for still photography and a cinevized version. The cineglass has the same optics, but comes with standard gear for focus and aperture, declicked iris and markings on the side, so your focus puller can see them. The focal lengths and speeds are 8mm/f3.5 fisheye, 14mm/f2.8, 24mm/f1.4, 35mm/f1.4 and 85mm/f1.4.
Why there is no 50mm/f1.4 is beyond me though. I hope Samyang comes up with that missing link as soon as possible, since it’s not a complete set without a 50mm.

 

So here is the challenge. How can those affordable Korean cinevized still lenses hold up against expensive professional cineglass?"

4 Needs Of A Great Teacher | TeachThought | open resource materials in Teacher-preparation | Scoop.it

"

"You always have permission to use whatever tools you need to teach my daughter. Feel free to let her play.”

 

Responding to a standard email request for permission to use a digital tool in my classroom, a parent of one of my students recently gave me carte blanche to help her child learn. I almost got up from my desk and danced a jig. Not only did I feel truly appreciated for the work I have done this year to empower my students as self-directed, curious learners, but I also felt a much needed affirmation of trust in my ability to make professional choices in the classroom, even as we might play around, attempt the unknown, fail, and start over. Thank you, thank you, I thought, for the parents who understand what real learning is and who trust me to teach the best way I can."

Courtney Burns's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:45 AM

When we first looked at this picture in class there was no way that I thought this map could be true. We are warned all the time to be careful what we look at on the internet, because for the most part a lot of the information is not true. When we looked at this photo in class we zoomed in on the area in the circle and first determined what was included  in that circle. Once we were able to detrmine what cities were within that circle we were then able to look up the population in each of those cities. We added up the total of each city to get the total population of the places within the circle. Then we researched the total population of the world. Once we were able to find this we subtracted the population from within the circle from the total population, and what we were left with was smaller than the total population within the circle. Which means that the map was true. I was shocked. There was no way that I thought this was true. What was interesting to me was the process we went through to determine that this map was even true. We had to detrmine the area we were working with and then research the information to get a solution. I think you learn a lot just by this simple picture. This map happened to be true however there are many picture listed under this map that are untrue that we are faced with all the time, that if we took the time to research we woudl realize are silly pictures. Just by researching information about a picutre like this can teach us a lot about a place. 

James Hobson's curator insight, November 11, 2014 12:23 PM

(South Asia topic 2)

Though not necessarily just a South Asia issue by any means, the ability to analyze data and make one's own conclusions is a major part of geographical study. Whether it be photos, personal observations, or raw data, apparently-false information can be proven true, and vice versa. Without this second-guessing of sources the fundamental questions of "What?", "Why?", and "So what?" wouldn't be utilized. Even if you believe firmly in a source/data and it does turn out to be true, at the very least you have filled in the second question in geographical analysis, which otherwise might be overlooked.

Melissa Marie Falco-Dargitz's curator insight, November 23, 2014 10:15 AM

The statement is true. When the populations of the countries highlighted are combined, 51% of the world’s population lives in the circle. But, this is a claim that could be easily just put out there. We have to look at where the information comes from. In this day and age, it is easy to manipulate numbers, images and ideas. The media has become spin masters.
