Nikki Bourlet's insight:

I particularly liked the information on GeoGebra, Tab Scissors and the video on other extensions available with Google Chrome. All-in-all a very useful site to curate and share with others.

Teacher's Guide to Information Crap Detection | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teacher's Guide to Information Crap Detection | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching ICT Resources | Scoop.it

Information overload, information crap,information pollution...are some of the words that are being used now to describe the tsunami of irrelevant information we are bombarded with day and night.In  December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for all users, and we entered a new era of personalization. With little notice or fanfare, our online experience is changing, as the websites we visit are increasingly tailoring themselves to us.Everywhere you turn you find information that seems relevant to you but in fact is nothing but crap. This is probably why Eli Pariser recommended what he called Information Bubble.

 

Howard Rheingold is another guy who has done a lot of writings on Information Crap. I have already reviewed his awesome book Net Smart: How to Thrive Online in an article posted last year. Today I am sharirng with you some of the great resources I learned from Howard himself about how to detect crap information and the literacies we need to develop and teach to our students to make them better internet users. Check out the links below and share with us what you think of them. Enjoy

Anne Whaits's curator insight, January 31, 2013 4:19 PM

"Four units comprise the curriculum resources. Each unit consists of standalone yet complementary lesson plans that play off a creative rights scenario presented through a case study.

Each unit has 4-6 of these project-oriented activities, one of which serves as the culminating lesson for the unit. Guiding questions help set the expectation for what students learn, and pre/post assessments establish baseline knowledge to gauge student learning. Modification and Extension suggestions recommend ways to abridge or expand the activities within the unit, and provide tips for engaging parents and peers outside of the classroom.

You’ll have to register to download the actual units (PDF format)."

5 Simple E-learning Instructional Strategies That Keep Your Learners Hooked!

5 Simple E-learning Instructional Strategies That Keep Your Learners Hooked! | Teaching ICT Resources | Scoop.it

An engaging course keeps your learner come back for more, Let see 5 simple ways of designing an eLearning courses that keeps your learners hooked!

 

Many a times as an instructional designer I only have background information about my learner; I don’t know who they are or what their interest are. This makes my job a bit difficult because I need to make sure that my learner is motivated enough to complete my course. But how do I do this?

 

There are plenty of books written with instructional strategies on how to engage and motivate your learner. These books are mainly theoretical and do help when you’re in need; however, I have realized that there is no better way to learn other than from your own practical experience.

'Essential questions' are all too often lower order. And not that essential.

 

When we're working with schools on our Design Thinking School programme, one of the easiest ways to explain what we're looking for in the way a project is set, is whether the statement or questions being asked can be Googled easily: is this a Googleable or Not Googleable topic?

Mark Rounds's curator insight, January 3, 2013 1:39 PM

Typoeffects is another Word Cloud maker website that lets you create cool looking images based on a photo that you upload.

It requires Microsoft Silverlight, so you’ll need to be able to install that onto the computer you’re using (Check with your network admin)

It allows you to upload a photograph then create a word cloud image from a few keywords. Unlike other word cloud generators like Wordle there’s no link between word size and how frequent it is. It also seems to work best with only a few keywords (15/16) so you can’t really use it on a long chunk of text. It would be an interesting way to present a set of keywords for a topic or as a lesson starter.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, January 19, 2013 10:13 AM

May require a couple more careful steps, but very cool idea
