This is a great, short article outlining how best to put together your portfolio.


I need this info, Desperately!


I'm redeveloping my company's site and the hardest part isn't what to say or show... The really hard part is what NOT to show and what NOT to say.  I've done a couple of thousand design projects and 10s of thousands of photos, dozens of videos, etc. etc.


The hardest part is distilling it down to what's truly good vs what I *think* is good.

Caroline - so true!
Philippe Trebaul's comment, September 9, 2013 11:48 AM
You're all totally true. I really agree with you. I would add that "followers" are (normally, except for fake profiles...) persons. And persons MUST be respected. I agree too with you, Sigrid, concerning the fact that influence could be better mesured by interactions. Thx a lot for your reactions. It's very kind from you! Have a great week. Best regards :) Philippe

Interesting take on a few forms of curation that can be used.  Infographic is, as the creator remarked, a little crowded, however the information is useful.

9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Edudemic | Professional Learning | Scoop.it

There is often a big divide between what happens in the laboratory and the way laboratory findings are practically applied. The relationship between neuroscience research and education is no exception. While there are numerous educational products that claim to be based on neuroscience research (often quite dubiously so), the real impact of brain-based research on education has been much more subtle.

Understanding the Instructor’s Role in Facilitating Online Discussions

Understanding the Instructor’s Role in Facilitating Online Discussions | Professional Learning | Scoop.it
As I reviewed course evaluations after my first year of online teaching, an unexpected theme emerged: several students mentioned they wished I had been a bigger part of their discussions, primarily so they would know if they were on the right track. I naively assumed my silence during group discussion would be taken as evidence by students that their discussions were right on target, but this was not the case at all. Students needed more reassurance, especially since I was asking them to take very big risks in terms of explaining their understanding of a content area that was often new and challenging for them..
