Great tips!

Hugo Callens's curator insight, April 25, 2014 3:56 AM

Content curation is het systematisch verzamelen, selecteren en commentariëren van allerlei content die je op het web vindt met betrekking tot een topic die voor jou,  je organisatie en je publiek relevant is.

Het is o.a. een manier om je positie als "expert" op een bepaald gebied te versterken, om zelf op de hoogte te blijven van de ontwikkelingen in je vakgebied en om tegelijk  je publiek "op te voeden".

In deze presentatie vind je 10 praktische tips om dat proces vorm te geven.

NASA's New Horizons probe snaps first color image of Pluto | Nick Lavars | GizMag.com | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

As it edges ever closer to its landmark flyby of Pluto in July, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft has returned its first color image of the dwarf planet and its largest moon Charon. This first blurry image marks the beginning of what will be an extensive and informative color photo series of the as-yet unexplored planet.

Since launching from Cape Canaveral in 2006, New Horizons has spent much of its 9.5 year journey in hibernation mode, preserving power for its awakening in December last year. Having now traveled more than 3 billion miles (4.8 billion km), it has since begun relaying data back to Earth. This started with black and white photos of Pluto and Charon in January, along with revealing images of smaller moons Nix and Hydra the month after.

The color photo was captured by New Horizon's Ralph color imager on April 9 and is the first ever colored photograph of Pluto taken by a spacecraft on approach. It was shot from around 71 million miles (115 km) away, significantly closer than its first black and white images taken at 126 million miles (203 million km), and transmitted back to Earth the following day.

The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online | Open Culture

The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online | Open Culture | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

Back in January, 2012, we mentioned that the Guggenheim (the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed modern art museum in NYC) had put 65 art catalogues on the web, all free of charge.

We’re happy to report that, between then and now, the number of free texts has grown to 109. Published between 1937 and 1999, the art books/catalogues offer an intellectual and visual introduction to the work of Alexander Calder, Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele, Fernand Léger, and Kandinsky. Plus there are other texts (e.g., Masterpieces of Modern Art and Abstract Expressionists Imagists) that tackle meta movements and themes.

Anyone interested in the history of the Guggenheim will want to spend time with a collection called “The Syllabus.” It contains five books by Hilla Rebay, the museum’s first director and curator. Together, they let you take a close look at the art originally housed in the Guggenheim when the museum first opened its doors in 1939.

Con el Blended Learning  los estudiantes y maestros llegan a experimentar con un método de enseñanza multimodal en la que el aprendizaje digital y virtual se mezcla con el presencial. Sin embargo, una de las ideas erróneas que circulan entre los que son menos entusiastas sobre el uso de este método de aprendizaje en las aulas es que el aprendizaje mixto no es otra cosa que la sustitución de los profesores con la tecnología. La infografía  echa por tierra este mito y cuenta los numerosos beneficios de aprendizaje combinado. Echa un vistazo y comparte con nosotros lo que piensa de él.

Screen Addiction Is Taking a Toll on Children | Jane Brody | NYTimes.com

Screen Addiction Is Taking a Toll on Children | Jane Brody | NYTimes.com | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

Excessive use of computer games among young people in China appears to be taking an alarming turn and may have particular relevance for American parents whose children spend many hours a day focused on electronic screens. The documentary “Web Junkie,” to be shown next Monday on PBS, highlights the tragic effects on teenagers who become hooked on video games, playing for dozens of hours at a time often without breaks to eat, sleep or even use the bathroom. Many come to view the real world as fake.

Chinese doctors consider this phenomenon a clinical disorder and have established rehabilitation centers where afflicted youngsters are confined for months of sometimes draconian therapy, completely isolated from all media, the effectiveness of which remains to be demonstrated.

While Internet addiction is not yet considered a clinical diagnosis here, there’s no question that American youths are plugged in and tuned out of “live” action for many more hours of the day than experts consider healthy for normal development. And it starts early, often with preverbal toddlers handed their parents’ cellphones and tablets to entertain themselves when they should be observing the world around them and interacting with their caregivers.

In its 2013 policy statement on “Children, Adolescents, and the Media,” the American Academy of Pediatrics cited these shocking statistics from a Kaiser Family Foundation study in 2010: “The average 8- to 10-year-old spends nearly eight hours a day with a variety of different media, and older children and teenagers spend more than 11 hours per day.” Television, long a popular “babysitter,” remains the dominant medium, but computers, tablets and cellphones are gradually taking over.

“Many parents seem to have few rules about use of media by their children and adolescents,” the academy stated, and two-thirds of those questioned in the Kaiser study said their parents had no rules about how much time the youngsters spent with media.

Parents, grateful for ways to calm disruptive children and keep them from interrupting their own screen activities, seem to be unaware of the potential harm from so much time spent in the virtual world.

5 Ways to "Remove the Walls" From Your Classroom | Alex Byland Blog | Edutopia.org

5 Ways to "Remove the Walls" From Your Classroom | Alex Byland Blog | Edutopia.org | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

After the first day of school this year, I couldn't believe my luck! My seventh grade math and science students participated eagerly, worked well in groups, and followed our agreed-upon classroom procedures.

 

With the deck stacked in my favor, I was sure that this was going to be my best year of teaching thus far. However, after three to four weeks, the on-task behaviors waned across the grade as students seemed to focus more on personal squabbles than their classwork.

 

Simply put, the students were getting tired of one another. Even when I changed up the seating chart, planned purposeful groups, and taught interactive differentiated lessons, the students' bickering continued to get in the way of their learning. The honeymoon period was officially over!


5 Best Practices

I quickly realized that we needed to approach our classes in a drastically different manner to ensure that this school year would be successful. During collaborative planning, my colleagues and I decided to swap some students for an upcoming lesson to see if altering their routine and separating some conflicting personalities would have a positive behavioral impact.

 

We were astounded by the results. The students' participation skyrocketed, they interacted appropriately within their new peer groups, and best of all, they mastered the lesson. I asked myself, "Have we just discovered the key to resetting the glorious honeymoon period?"

Over the school year, our students made strong gains as we continued dabbling with purposefully regrouping them across our classes. I've compiled a list of five successful strategies so that you, too, can remove the walls from your classroom and work smarter, not harder, to see more effective results.
