As always I do this by looking through eLearning Learning and related sites like Communities and Networks Connection. I looked at Virtual Classroom, Distance Learning, ILT, Teaching Distance Learning. I also did some quick searches for various kinds of things and added them into eLearning Learning (via delicious). So together, I’ve collected a bunch of resources pretty quickly. That said, there’s so much already out there on this – I’m at this point not quite sure what the real question was/is. Certainly a lot of this is already findable. I hope this is useful. But I think the problem at this point might be something else. Still here are 60 great resources.
The answer: in more ways than you could imagine. While Skype was not designed as an educational tool, it’s quickly becoming one as teachers discover the many ways it enriches their lessons and the lives of their students. Even something as simple as hosting a guest speaker through a video call can add excitement to a lesson.
As with any tech tool, it can seem daunting to introduce this into your classroom at first. If you don’t know where to start, try one of these five creative ideas.
In simple terms, it is the process of breaking down what you know and information you have, and then evaluating and critically analyzing it in order to make an informed decision without bias.
A critical thinker:
- Is open-minded and mindful of alternatives - Desires to be, and is, well-informed - Judges well the credibility of sources - Identifies reasons, assumptions, and conclusions - Asks appropriate clarifying questions - Judges well the quality of an argument, including its reasons, assumptions, evidence, and their degree of support for the conclusion - Can well develop and defend a reasonable position regarding a belief or an action, doing justice to challenges - Formulates plausible hypotheses - Plans and conducts experiments well - Defines terms in a way appropriate for the context - Draws conclusions when warranted – but with caution - Integrates all of the above aspects of critical thinking

By 2020 Millennials will make up over a third of the global workforce. That’s one reason so many reports about them exist. Some say they are disloyal, self-absorbed and lazy, while others claim they’re a generation of digital entrepreneurs and innovators. Some aim to dispel the myths others have created. Just type “Millennials are...” into a Google search to see the stereotypes.
This is not just another Millennial report. This report presents new findings with fresh insights from the perspective of both employers and employees. As world of work experts, we have nearly 30,000 employees advising 400,000 clients on hiring decisions and talent development every year. We find work for 3.4 million people—about half of whom are Millennials.
We carried out quantitative research across 25 countries surveying 19,000 Millennials, including 8,000 ManpowerGroup associate employees and more than 1,500 of our own hiring managers. We asked what they look for in a job, what development opportunities they seek and what would make them stay with an employer. We wanted to understand how different they are or aren’t from the rest of the workforce and from generations before them. We wanted to ensure that the sample represented all working Millennials; not just the top percent of tech-savvy earners, but also the graduates and non-graduates across all industries, income and education levels.
