Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 24, 2013 10:21 PM

Sometimes when we think of teaching with technology we get overwhelmed. This slideshow provides some great survival tips like:
* Find out what your students already use

* Familiarize yourself with the pedagogy and skills needed

* Make sure the technology supports the learning

Additional resources are included as you walk through the tips.

The making of Americans: Immigration

The making of Americans: Immigration | student engagement,Social Studies, Technology | Scoop.it
The "melting pot" has been glorified, vilified, and dismissed as obsolete. But both census data and the stories of millions of individual immigrants indicate that the not-always-easy process of assimilation is alive and well.

Al Picozzi's curator insight, July 12, 2013 3:00 PM

It is a melting pot.  It get less and less of the older immigrations, Irish, Italian and other, but newer immigrants add to this melting pot.  I once read someone said that their grandparents were Italian-Italian immigrants, they they were Italian-American, that their kids are American-Italian and thayt their grandkids will be American-American, the pot might get dilluted every so often, but someone will always add to it.

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker | student engagement,Social Studies, Technology | Scoop.it

As the traditional lecture has come increasingly under fire for being completely out of touch with modern teaching and learning methods, there has been a move by many teachers, conference presenters and lecturers to make their teaching techniques more modern and interactive. One of the key technologies for enabling this has been a range of audience response systems that provide real time responses to polls, questions and surveys while the speakers is actually presenting.

Steph's Journalism Group 2013's curator insight, October 7, 2013 7:22 PM
Chwayita Ceejay January's insight:'

A very interesting tool, that teachers can use inside and outside the formal learning area. Where students can interact with the information live during the lecture (where most interaction should happen anyway) closing the 'cold and insigificant' student-lecturer relationship. Students can respond to the data while the lecture is in progress. As expensive and time-consuming (training) this intiative would be to udertake it would certainly improve lecture attedance. :D

Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 22, 2013 2:23 PM

I have recently read the book the Wizard of Oz with my children and the book fits this hypothesis much more accurately than the movie does.  The Emerald City wasn't truly that color but everyone was force to wear emerald-colored glass (hence, they all believed that the ordinary things had extraordinary monetary value).

Ms. Harrington's curator insight, May 22, 2013 2:28 PM

Henry Littlefield's "Parable on Populism" covers this hypothesis in great detail and is worth the read.
