ThingLink is a multimedia rich and flexible tool can be used to support the diverse learning needs of all students, putting power in the hands of the facilitator of a well designed lesson. So let’s focus a bit on designing lessons from the start that are equipped with built-support and designed for success. 


Universal Design for Learning supports the idea of designing lessons from the start that are equipped with support for all learners to overcome learning barriers and to meet their diverse learning needs.

13 Implications for Educational institutions at the primary, secondary, and post-secondary levels, are largely the products of technology infrastructure and social circumstances of the past.

The landscape has changed and educational institutions should consider how to adapt quickly in response. Some directions of change might include:

»Placing additional emphasis on developing skills such as critical thinking, insight, and analysis capabilities

»Integrating new-media literacy into education programs

»Including experiential learning that gives prominence to soft skills—such as the ability to collaborate, work in groups, read social cues, and respond adaptively

»Broadening the learning constituency beyond teens and young adults through to adulthood

»Integrating interdisciplinary training that allows students todevelop skills and knowledge in a range of subjects

Craig Stark's curator insight, July 25, 2014 10:14 AM

There is a lot of value in this infographic!  The future of work will defined by knowledge transfer and skills development that are completely being reshaped.

 

To succeed as an entrepreneur, you will need to be able to grasp these concepts early and apply them to all facets of developing ideas, products and services and navigating a global landscape.

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"Teachers interested in trying the flipped classroom model often ask me for recommendations for video creation tools. They also often ask me for ideas on sharing videos without using YouTube. One answer to both of these questions is to useeduClipper.

On the free eduClipper iPad app you can create instructional videos on a whiteboard in the Khan Academy style. You can also use the app to create a video in which you annotate an image or document while talking about it. After creating your video you can save it to an eduClipper board that you have shared with your students through the eduClipper classroom setting. Your students can view the videos on their iPads or in the web browsers on their laptops."

Hi Ana, first of all thanks for all the interesting stuff you find and scoop. You are a treasure trove. I'd appreciate though a bit more vetting of your sources and their content as to avoid articles like these which do provide a set of tools names but include no links, references, screenshots or an omogeneous way to review them. On the surface and from the title it looks great, but as you dig into it, you leave with quite a different impression. Given you are my trusted guide on some of these, I'd love for you to be a bit more severe in your selections in spite of quantity of scoops.
