I recently mentioned that after spending a good few months on-and-off sorting out the island home and getting it just so, I'd started fiddling with it again.

Golden Ratio Heads-Up Display for Taking Perfect SL Pics

Golden Ratio Heads-Up Display for Taking Perfect SL Pics | الرحلات المعرفية | Scoop.it

This is a clever HUD which helps you shoot Second Life photos based on the Golden ratio. Supports three rulers: Fibonacci, rule of Thirds, and Phi. Yes, you could just apply a golden ratio when cropping a screenshot after you've taken it, but where's the fun in that? Created by Vladimiro Renoir, it's in the SL Marketplace for the price of very cheap coffee.

Educators Need to be 21st Century Learners Too… | الرحلات المعرفية | Scoop.it

We expect our children to develop these skills. We integrate these skills in our every day lessons so that our students can grow and expand their knowledge. We create spaces so that our students can create and collaborate, whether it is a physical space or a virtual space. We expect our students to be good digital citizens, using devices, programs, and tools responsibly. We want our students to ask questions and explore for answers. We expect our students to learn, grow, and then reflect on that learning.

Teaching in a Virtual Environment

Teaching in a Virtual Environment | الرحلات المعرفية | Scoop.it
As you can probably tell, I tend to be into how to use digital tools in my teaching. I'm also interested in how to teach in online/virtual environments. I teach in a masters program that is hybrid. This means that about 50% of the time we meet face to face and 50% of the time…

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom | الرحلات المعرفية | Scoop.it

First and foremost, student writing is improving by leaps and bounds. When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers. Not every post is perfect, but the majority are well written and free of grammar and usage issues that I am so familiar with seeing in their other work. If they become sloppy, all I need to do is politely comment about it on their blog, and I don't see it again.

How time have changed. whats your input on this?

Nalya Ovshieva's curator insight, May 8, 2013 9:03 AM

This is a useful experience of developing writing skills.  As a follow-up activity, writing by way of blogging could enable students to get a feel for the issue studied, and assume responsibity for public writing.

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, May 21, 2013 12:39 AM

First and foremost, I think it is safe to say that student writing is improving by leaps and bounds when it comes to technology. Blogs are a brilliant way to for students to keep an ongoing "journal" where they can write about whatever they want and improve their writing skills as a result. This article looks at a teacher who introduced blogging to her junior students and found huge improvements as a result. "When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers". Blogs are motivational and more interesting than conventional writing assignemnts, and students are consequently more open to learning from them as a result.
