Text Annotation: Active Reading Strategies Online

Text Annotation: Active Reading Strategies Online | Technology and Communication | Scoop.it
I’m a stickler about annotations. For years, I heard students lament, “Tucker, I never remember what I read” or “I just don’t understand what is happening in this book.” In response, I began to teach students the art of annotating.

I provide students with strategies they can use to annotate the texts we read. I encourage them to:

When Words and Body Language Convey Two Different Messages

When Words and Body Language Convey Two Different Messages | Technology and Communication | Scoop.it

The Learning Factor's curator insight, September 2, 2013 9:49 PM
Communication is more than just the words we speak. Words are one half of the message in communication, with non-verbal aspect making up the other half. Body language affects a great deal of how we communicate. What we say and what we communicate are two different things, if you will. Body movements and gestures, posture, eye contact, skin coloring, breathing, and even perspiration all add to the words that are spoken.

Body language can even accurately convey our thoughts more than the words we speak. When a listener is confronted with conflicting signals, it is quite often that they rely on the non-verbal cues because they are natural and spontaneous.


The ability to understand non-verbal communication is a powerful tool that can help one connect with others and build better relationships. Deliberately misinterpreted information and concealed motives wreak havoc on daily conversations and even in business negotiations. For this reason, it is always important to recognize and understand non-verbal communication as it speaks the loudest.

c'est vrai que le language coporel peut avoir un sens caché que je ne connais pas !

3D Printing Technology Helps Blind Students Feel the Words

3D Printing Technology Helps Blind Students Feel the Words | Technology and Communication | Scoop.it

 

Tania Jain, a student, and a Hyderabad-based ophthalmologist Dr Anthony Vipin Das, have created 'Fittle' (Fit the Puzzle) that will enable blind children learn letters of braille and sense the objects the words convey.

 

Fittle is an accessible learning toolset for visually challenged kids. Through a playful puzzle, kids can learn new words and visualize shapes of objects that these words stand for.  

 

For example, by feeling braille letters embossed on the word blocks, and then feeling the shape that s/he has fit together, the kid can touch what the object might feel like in real.
