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.

How to Turn Your Bullet Points Into Visually-Engaging Elements

How to Turn Your Bullet Points Into Visually-Engaging Elements | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Professional designers will advise against ever using bullet points in a deck: Bullet points act like bullets — they kill your presentation. However, this mentality can change if you transform your bullet points into a visual component of your presentation.

Education Graduate Programs - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Teachers wanting to move into a leadership or administrative role, or to specialize in a particular aspect of education, should consider one the many education graduate programs that are available. Some of these programs are differentiated by age range, e.g., early childhood, elementary, secondary, post-secondary and adult education. Others are differentiated by topic, e.g., special education, educational administration, and TESOL. This page has more details of the programs and where they can be taken …

Memorizers are the lowest achievers and other Common Core math surprises - The Hechinger Report

Memorizers are the lowest achievers and other Common Core math surprises - The Hechinger Report | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"It’s time to debunk the myths about who is good in math, and Common Core state standards move us toward this worthy goal. Mathematics and technology leaders support the standards because they are rooted in the new brain and learning sciences.


All children are different in their thinking, strength and interests. Mathematics classes of the past decade have valued one type of math learner, one who can memorize well and calculate fast.


Yet data from the 13 million students who took PISA tests showed that the lowest achieving students worldwide were those who used a memorization strategy – those who thought of math as a set of methods to remember and who approached math by trying to memorize steps. The highest achieving students were those who thought of math as a set of connected, big ideas."

Ackroyd decided this wasn’t optimal. “People no longer have to come to a library to get information,” she says, “so the library has to get people coming in for different reasons. Students need somewhere to socialize, create things and collaborate.”

this is on point. in today's generation school has become a chore, not because it is boring or uninteresting (and it is) but because that is how we were raised to think. school is supposed to "suck" and we are supposed to hate it with a fiery passion. but if we could integrate the [arts kids love about school into the subjects we don't  believe that kids could learn to be excited about Knowledge and the expanse if possibility it holds.

Curriculum comes from currere which has to do with repeatedly running the course and autobiography implying complex conversations. These happen in School and outside.

What Will Education Look Like in a More Open Future? - About Education Degrees

What Will Education Look Like in a More Open Future? - About Education Degrees | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In his MindShift article, David Price (author of OPEN: How We’ll Work, Live And Learn In The Future) considers what open learning systems – as productivity and innovation drivers – would look like for educators:

Open learning systems apply the same learning principles to their professionals as they do to their students. They understand that the only sustainable transformation in education has to be owned by the people who have to implement it: teachers. They have high expectations of the profession’s capacity to learn through transparent, shared practice, and of their ability to rise to additional responsibilities. They have the humility to accept that learning now happens everywhere, anytime, and they work hard to integrate informal learning into the formal environment.

Webtools: No Registration Needed for Students

Webtools: No Registration Needed for Students | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Welcome to my list of webtools that don’t require student registration. This started off as a simple curation for myself and has ballooned into something that I never thought would get this big. And it is still growing. 

While I do try to verify each link on a regular basis, please be aware that websites do change and some of these sites may no longer be active or may have switched to a paid version. Also, some of these sites rely on advertisements and so be careful when using with younger students. To make it on this list, a site must be:

Free. There may be paid versions, but there is an option to use without paying.Without the need for students to give their email address. Teachers may have to register, but there is an option for students to either sign-in or use without giving their own email address or log-in with their Facebook/Google/Twitter/etc. account.For the most part, interactive or creative. The ideal tool allows the student to express themselves through creation, but some of these tools are for teachers only.Completely online. There should be no need to install something to make it work. Some of these sites require things like Flash or Java which are on most desktop and laptop computers, but are normally not accessible on a tablet or phone.

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Getty In the book Teaching 2030 by Barnett Berry and 12 classroom experts, the authors pinpoint specific skills educators will need to teach in the schools of tomorrow.

 

They say teachers must be prepared to find and adapt new technologies to engage the digital generation, as well as work across traditional subject areas using project learning.

 

They must be able to use data and evidence to inform their practice and know how to work in both virtual learning environments and brick-and-mortar schools. And they’ll need to collaborate with community-based organizations and work in schools that provide all kinds of other services for students and their families.

 

Along those lines, Berry has outlined five changes he believes need to be made to the future of teacher education.

What Australian slang has given the world

What Australian slang has given the world | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

“G’day Mate. Put another shrimp on the barbie”.

Australia is as well-known for its unique turns of phrase as it is for its ubiquitous meat pie. But few realise how many terms in use around the world originated down under, writes Mark Gwynn for BBC Culture:

"In 2013, ‘selfie’ became Oxford Dictionaries’ word of the year. It’s become such a ubiquitous word, but few stop to think about where it came from. It may come as a surprise to learn that is has its origins in Australia: the first evidence of the word in use comes from an online forum entry by the Australian Nathan Hope, who posted a photo of his lip, which he says he cut while drinking at a mate’s 21st birthday party."
