An Internal Hydraulic of Change | Theory to Practice

The core chemistry of higher education is transformed if and when the academy and those beyond it understand how a campus’s culture for learning is inextricably linked to multiple and progressive opportunities for engaged learning; the expectation that such engagement should occur for every student; the connection and cultivation of those learning experiences to broad and deep civic understanding and action; and the recognition that those elements of the institution’s commitment to higher learning and to its civic expression are fully bound up in treating students as whole learners—persons whose well-being is an objective of the opportunities and encouragement we as educators provide.This means a transformation in how faculty see and express their basic responsibilities as educators and how students welcome and adopt the expectation of challenging and demanding involvement in their education. It means replacing institutional structures that artificially segment and restrict parts of a whole with integration and common objectives, and altering financial priorities and reward structures so as to provide the conditions needed to reach a tipping point, to have change occur and persist.

Bubble Pop Multiplication - An Exercise in Multiplication Practice - iPad Apps for School

Bubble Pop Multiplication - An Exercise in Multiplication Practice - iPad Apps for School | Student Engagement | Scoop.it
"Bubble Pop Multiplication is an iPad game from MathsFrame. The concept of the game is rather simple. Students select the sets of multiplication tables that they’re trying to learn and then the game is to “pop” the bubbles that provide the solution to reach the target number. When students pop the correct bubbles the game shows them a visual explanation of the correct answer on a number line."

Excellent Classroom Poster on How to Cite Information from Internet ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Student Engagement | Scoop.it
"Much of the information students use in their research papers come from internet and be it a blog post, an email, or wiki entry, students need to properly cite and document their sources as is recommended by the citation format embraced by their professor or teacher. MAL and APA are two of the most frequently used citation styles but most high schools use MLA. In the present post I am sharing with you a simplified guide on how to cite online information using MLA style. I have also created a visual poster that goes along with this guide. You can use the poster with your students in class or share it on your blog as long as you do not charge people for it and as long as you credit Educational Technology and Mobile Learning as being the original source."
