How to Protect Your WordPress From Attack

How to Protect Your WordPress From Attack | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

An ongoing brute-force attack on WordPress-based websites has compromised more than 90,000 blogs, but there are simple ways to make sure your blog won't be next to fall.

Brute-force attacks, as their name would suggest, are some of the least sophisticated hacks out there, rapidly cycling through common directory names, passwords and IP addresses in order to access private files through sheer dumb luck.

The bad news is that such attacks happen to WordPress blogs tens of thousands of times per day; the good news is that stopping them cold is simplicity itself.

Technology can transform education, but not without people

Technology can transform education, but not without people | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Five years ago I was trying every new tech tool to come out. I was glogging with glogster. I was threading with voice thread. And I sure was writing and editing in real-time with Google Docs! But the technology was not transforming me. It was not transforming my classroom, because it was just technology.

"I enjoy discussing iPad and other edtech resources with my colleague and friend Sylvia Duckworth almost every week through Twitter. Sylvia is a leader in the French teaching community in Canada, and has created an enormous amount of resources for language teachers to use. I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."

An increasing number of US students are applying to study in Germany. This year the number stands at more than 4,600 US students, an increase of 20% over three years. Why? It’s simple economics.

The Right Content Marketing Strategy – Where Does it Begin?

The Right Content Marketing Strategy – Where Does it Begin? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Even though the concept of Content Marketing has been evolving over the last two years, most of the businesses still feel that the premise behind investing in content marketing is still spreading the sales and marketing messages and branding.

 

Even though you can achieve those goals with content marketing, there’s a lot more to content marketing than simply delivering marketing and sales messages.

 

The way most content marketers see it, the goal behind content marketing should be to provide information to your customers – answer their questions and doubts about your products or services without pitching them a sales message.

 

A right content marketing strategy begins with this step – getting the definition of content marketing right....

Tapping into kids' passion for Minecraft in the classroom - THE CONVERSATION | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

If you know children aged between about six and 14, then you have probably heard of Minecraft.

Minecraft is a digital game, a popular cultural phenomenon and a powerful platform for learning. It is one of the most successful digital games of all time and continues to grow in popularity.

Educators have a great interest in Minecraft because children and young people seem to be driven to learn new knowledge and skills to play the game with a passion that they often lack for their everyday schooling.

A framework for content curation

A framework for content curation | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I have started thinking about a model – or perhaps more accurately, a framework – for content curation.

Consider the trusty instructional design heuristic of Tell Me, Show Me, Let Me, Test Me. As far as heuristics go, I’ve found this to be a good one. It reminds us that transmission is ineffective on its own; learners really need to see the concept in action and give it a go themselves. As the Chinese saying goes, “Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.”

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.
