It's fascinating to me that the iPad now is even becoming a creation device for top artists such as David Hockney whose exhibit is currently running at the de Young museum for those of you in San Francisco. 


Will that inspire the masses to become iPad painters too?

Holly Berndt's curator insight, May 29, 2015 10:02 PM

This article by Cory Perkins explores a variety of iPad paintings created by contemporary artist Hockney. The article begins with an older digital painting created by Hockney using Adobe Photoshop, before the introduction of tablets. In 2012, Hockney also began using digital video cameras in his work. Some of his installations include 18 large screens to display videos. Hockney has shown a steady and exciting trend in incorporating technology in his work.

I had no idea there were so many different YouTube channels for teachers. I had always thought that teachers received all of their information for their lessons from the school board and had to do everything a certain way. I love how you can take things and change it; these channels are giving me many exciting things to try when I become a teacher.

MAKING YOUR MEDICAL STUDENTS AND HUMAN RESSOURCES MORE MOTIVATED!

If they don't where they're going to, let's them know at least where they come from!

Let you teach your students the universal history of the hospital and the medical school like I'm proposing it from Hippocrates of Cos to now.

Our university hospitals originated from Nestorians and Syriaq bimaristans! If you're interested in and you don't know how to do it, let you be free to invite me as a visiting lecturer. I'll do that for the best of your students. You just have to pay my C-airplane ticket and a 3-night-stay in a good hotel. Since Gl. Patton's army delivered my village on 4 August 1944 from Rommel's one, I don't request honoraria. This is a gift to the US people.
Prof. Dr. JF Moreau, MD, of Paris, France, is Honorary Fellow of the American Collège of Radiology. I was Visiting Professor twice at UCSD, once at the Downstate Medical Center of Brooklyn NY, and at the Arizona Health Center, Tucson, AZ. I lectured many times in plentiful main universities in the whole USA and Canada from 1979. I speak English and Spanish fluently.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 30, 2013 3:37 AM

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

L R Everitt's curator insight, November 25, 2013 3:30 PM

I absolutely agree with this premise: students need to feel the classroom is a safe place to take risks and even make mistakes, all in the interest of learning.  That sense of security comes from agreeing build a positive learning environment, which is a loving place to be.  Students, as well as teachers, have a lot of power to make or break such an agreement, so modeling this behavior and teaching students how to build mutual trust and respect is worth a small loss in academic instruction time at the beginning of the course.

5 Reasons Pinterest’s Search Engine Is Better Than Google’s

5 Reasons Pinterest’s Search Engine Is Better Than Google’s | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

Pinterest is a lifestyle searching tool for millions of people.

 

People go on there with excited eyes to look for amazing recipes to cook for dinner that weekend, find ways to dress to the tens for a special date, or find creative educational materials to teach children with.

 

Millions of users turn to Pinterest to enhance their lifestyle. And they are doing so by using the search function on Pinterest. Here’s a fun fact.

 

Did you know that Google has a search engine just for recipes? It’s been around for years, but almost nobody I know uses it.

 

Instead, most people I know automatically go to Pinterest if they want to find recipes to try out.

 

That’s not the only reason Pinterest is better than Google.

Rachael Johnston's curator insight, October 20, 2014 10:53 PM

It is important to build your own brand and to promote yourself positively. You want to be polite to other users and make sure you have nothing on your profile that could be damaging to your reputation. This includes swear words, inappropriate or rude comments, and pictures and videos of drinking or drugs.  This is really important for graduating students who, most likely, need to go through and delete pictures that have been tagged in one Facebook

Make sure you give credit to others if you share something of theirs. Also make sure you are writing your own posts and not just sharing others. However, make sure you are posting valuable and relevant information. Listen and think before you write and make sure you are using proper english. 

It is okay to have debates on social netowrks with other users, everybody has the right ti voice their opinion, but don't let things get too personal or nasty. 

It is also essential to understand that there are also hings to be very careful of when using social networks. For one, people are not always who they seem. You should also make sure you do not assume a false identity. It is important to keep some kind of professionalism, but don't change yourself or hide who you really are. 

You must also make sure you are abiding by the rules of the network and report others who dont. 

Last but certainly not least, be very careful about who you share things with. There are certain places to share certain things. For example, you may post something bout your personal life in your Facebook status, but it is not appropriate to do so on your LinkedIn profile. Do not share pictures and videos with strangers, you never know how they will use these.
