The world’s languages, in 7 maps and charts

The world’s languages, in 7 maps and charts | Prendi eLearning Specialist Subjects & Languages Technology | Scoop.it

"These seven maps and charts, visualized by The Washington Post, will help you understand how diverse other parts of the world are in terms of languages."


Tags: language, culture, infographic.


Via Seth Dixon
Melissa Marshall's insight:

A site to help students understand how diverse the world is - and particularly, that the English language is not the dominant language in the world! The use of infographics - data presented visually - help students compare languages across the world.

Caitlyn Christiansen's curator insight, May 26, 10:35 AM

The world is extremely diverse in its spread of native languages. Yet only a handful are commonly spoken by the majority of the world, about 2/3. Over half of the world's languages are expected to go extinct because of the extreme diversity and the minimal distribution which means that in some places almost every person speaks a completely different language and many are dying as their last speakers do not pass it on to their children.

 

This article is relates to cultural patterns and processes through the geographic spread of languages around the globe and the increasing acculturation that causes the loss of many of these languages in our increasingly globalized world.

Michael Amberg's curator insight, May 26, 10:35 PM

Its interesting to see just how many people speak the languages we speak everyday, and to see just how many people DONT speak it.

Shane C Cook's curator insight, May 27, 5:34 AM

It is amazing to see all main languages in perspective to the world. Mandarine holding the top spot with 1.39 Billion surprises me but at the same time doesn't. There are 1.3 billion people living there in the first place.

The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online | Open Culture

The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online | Open Culture | Prendi eLearning Specialist Subjects & Languages Technology | Scoop.it

Back in January, 2012, we mentioned that the Guggenheim (the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed modern art museum in NYC) had put 65 art catalogues on the web, all free of charge.

We’re happy to report that, between then and now, the number of free texts has grown to 109. Published between 1937 and 1999, the art books/catalogues offer an intellectual and visual introduction to the work of Alexander Calder, Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele, Fernand Léger, and Kandinsky. Plus there are other texts (e.g., Masterpieces of Modern Art and Abstract Expressionists Imagists) that tackle meta movements and themes.

Anyone interested in the history of the Guggenheim will want to spend time with a collection called “The Syllabus.” It contains five books by Hilla Rebay, the museum’s first director and curator. Together, they let you take a close look at the art originally housed in the Guggenheim when the museum first opened its doors in 1939.

Top 10 Ways to Teach Yourself to Code | Prendi eLearning Specialist Subjects & Languages Technology | Scoop.it

Via Maria Margarida Correia
Melissa Marshall's insight:

Starting a new subject in Year 9 on Robotics and Programming, I am reflecting on how important it is to think logically and solve problems - to think like a programmer. All this technology, all this information - and very few of us know how to read and write code. I am hoping for some big things within this course!

16 Habits of Mind Essential for 21st Century Learners ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

16 Habits of Mind Essential for 21st Century Learners ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Prendi eLearning Specialist Subjects & Languages Technology | Scoop.it

Via Amy Burns
Melissa Marshall's insight:

I remember doing Habits of Mind in my first year of teaching with Year 7. I also taught the same class English, RE and S&E, and we would constantly make links across each of the Habits as we went through the day. For instance, 'are you taking a responsible risk?' 'Have you gathered data through all senses?' The students could see how these Habits were helpful, and I was able to develop a strong teaching vocabulary that would model and assist students (and myself) in metacognition.

Melissa Marshall's insight:

As they are all web-based, the recordings can be accessed anywhere and students do not need to install an app to use them. Might be good for language-based subjects or those where students need to provide a description.

Excellent Video Clips on Plagiarism to Share with Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Prendi eLearning Specialist Subjects & Languages Technology | Scoop.it

Plagiarism is the enemy of creative thinking. Students who plagiarize often do so because they don't want to bother thinking hard to come up with their own ideas, With the uptake of digital media and the widespread of mobile handheld devices, plagiarism becomes a serious threat in the face of productive scholarly achievement.

Melissa Marshall's insight:

Here are several videos that explain the impact of plagiarism to help give students the idea that they need to reference their work and give credit when it is due. Each video is short and covers a different aspect. There are also some great ones on Common Sense Media under Digital Citizenship.

NGAkids Art Zone is a free iPad app from the National Gallery of Art (Washington. USA). The app is designed to students explore art through eight interactive activities.

After students open the app they can scroll through a gallery of paintings and drawings. Double-tapping on a drawing or painting will open an interactive activity in which students can modify the original work. Modification of a selected work takes place through sketching and or adding elements selected from a gallery of modifications. Students can save each work in the app or save it to the camera roll on an iPad. It would be great if our galleries in Aust launched similar apps, as this is quite good to play with.
