Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 1, 6:37 PM

If my understanding of 'big data' is somewhat accurate, I am not sure what big data does for education. Education is relational. It is personally relational and people relate to learning. As a classroom teacher, I was aware what worked and what did not.

"Apple’s AirDrop for iOS 7 is the answer to the cries of millions of users who want a better way of sharing their photos, videos and links than bluetooth, email or SMS. Before we go any further, we must mention that this feature only works with the the iPad 4 or Mini, and the iPad Air and iPad mini with retina display, all running iOS 7. This means there’s currently no way of using AirDrop with an older iPads."

Have you seen an RSA Animate video? Are you interested in learning how to make one or better yet, have your students make one? This post provides an in-depth look at how to go about have your students create an animated video that provides them with the opportunity to  practice 21st century skills (quoted from post below):

* collaborate with one another

* synthesize ideas

* create content

* communicate ideas clearly

* use technology

This activity is designed to have your students create content, providing you with materials to use in future classes as well as helping your current students understand the materiial.

The author, Jordan Collier, provides a detailed five-day plan. Day 1 would have you dividing students into groups of three, assign them a section of a chapter in a textbook, and determine the key facts that need to be taught. To read about how to assist them with this and the tasks for Day 2 - 5 click through to the post.
