Leftist Syriza Party Victory in Greece Strengthens Anti-Austerity Movement Across Europe | Democracy At Work

Running on an uncompromising anti-austerity platform, Greece’s Syriza party, the Coalition of the Radical Left, won a decisive victory over the conservative New Democracy party in the economically battered nation’s Jan. 25 election. Syriza fell only two seats short of winning an absolute majority in Greece’s 300-seat Parliament, prompting party leader Alexis Tsipras to form an alliance with the small, center right Independent Greeks party to form a governing coalition.

Robin Good's curator insight, Today, 3:53 PM


If you want to really learn and understand a new topic, one of the better ways to do it, is to see it described by different people who have been at it for some time.


This is why I think this showcase of 11 short video clips from different content experts can be of great help to anyone wanting to better understand what content curation is all about.


Each video clip provides a short but insightful contribution from a different angle, helping the viewer build a larger, more comprehensive view of curation, as a content marketing practice.


The clips are curated video excerpts from video interviews recorded at the 2014 B2B Marketing Profs (@marketingprofs) Forum in Boston.



A wonderful collection of insightful videos that helps anyone understand what content curation really is, beyond the hype and the buzz.


Recommended. 9/10

Bootstrap and Moodle – Gradebook tweak!

Bootstrap and Moodle – Gradebook tweak! | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Bootstrap themes have been available for Moodle for a while now, and a small issue was there that I had not seen before – until a lecturer wondered why they could not see grades in the gradebook that should have been there.

As it is that time of year that many are dealing with end of semester grades, I thought I should pass along the solution for you if you have not known about it.

** Please note that this may not effect your site depending on the version of Moodle and if you are using a Bootstrap theme.

The issue is this:

When a teacher hides a grade from students it got a class=’hidden’ applied. Themes before bootstrap ignored it as they did not have a style for it. However bootstrap base, and therefore themes like Clean etc did have a style of it namely:

display:none;
visibility:hidden;

So instead of showing grey-ed out, or showing normally, the hidden grades vanished on the interface for the teacher as in the screenshots below.

Being a Better Online Reader - The New Yorker

Being a Better Online Reader - The New Yorker | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Certainly, as we turn to online reading, the physiology of the reading process itself shifts; we don’t read the same way online as we do on paper. Anne Mangen, a professor at the National Centre for Reading Education and Research at the University of Stavanger, in Norway, points out that reading is always an interaction between a person and a technology, be it a computer or an e-reader or even a bound book.

Sarah McElrath's curator insight, Today, 12:39 PM

Interesting article. In my own experience, I found it true that I comprehend better when I read in print rather than online. This is backed up by lots of research -- which the article notes. 

 

What is interesting about this article, is that it isn't so quick to draw conclusions as to WHY. It isn't just print good - online bad.

 

And I love that it notes this: "Interestingly, Coiro found that gamers were often better online readers: they were more comfortable in the medium and better able to stay on task."  See Mom? The gaming isn't all bad. : )

Looks at the WHY - not just a print good - online bad article.
