40 Maps That Explain The Internet | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

The internet increasingly pervades our lives, delivering information to us no matter where we are. It takes a complex system of cables, servers, towers, and other infrastructure, developed over decades, to allow us to stay in touch with our friends and family so effortlessly. Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet — where it came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, August 22, 2014 1:00 PM
Here's why the Internet works, "... because open standards allow every network to connect to every other network.  (So far...)   This is what makes it possible for anyone to create content, offer services, and sell products without requiring permission from a central authority.

It levels the playing field for everyone and it’s the reason why we have a rich diversity of applications and services that many of us enjoy today.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 15, 2014 9:41 PM

The blended classroom is beginning to happen in many school districts. This infographic provides a great overview of blended learning. In addition to the section shown above, which looks at how teacher-led instruction connects to quality digital learning time to group work and projects (and the ongoing cycle) you will find sections on:

* Turning Computer Time into Quality Learning Time

* Empowering Teachers with Real-Time Student Performance Information

* Tying It All Together

Online learning happens in a variety of ways. This post looks at some of the critical features that must be included for an online or blended class to be successful.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 27, 2014 12:15 AM

This method of teaching harnesses both teacher expertise and flipped, student-lead learning, all enriched with technology. It is beginning to sit quite well with me as I have noticed some students still want to take notes, listen and learn from you - the expert teacher in this case is still valued! This could also be supplemented with teachers online and so on!

carldowse's curator insight, July 10, 2013 7:11 AM

Edmodo provides a simple to set-up, easy to use virtual learning environment which is especially suited to smaller groups. It's a hosted service (unlike Moodle) and works quite well on mobile devices. If you're thinking of offering a blended learning package to your learners then it's a good place to start.

Anne-Mart Olsen's curator insight, July 10, 2013 7:12 AM

I found that edmodo was particularly useful, as student easily identified with the platform.
