Official Google Blog: Introducing the Knowledge Graph: things, not strings | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Google search has just gotten a lot smarter. You can use their new Knowledge Graph to search for things in much more intuitive ways. Rather than using strings, it searchs for things. It does this by analysing previous searches, searches others have made, and by using the collective intelligence of the web.

Flipping the Classroom Requires More Than Video | GeekDad | Wired.com

Flipping the Classroom Requires More Than Video | GeekDad | Wired.com | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

By Kevin Makice

 

"Evansville (Indiana) science teacher Brian Bennett describes the Flipped Classroom as an ideology, not a methodology:

 

'Video itself will not help kids achieve more in your class. The flipped classroom is about making connections with learners and differentiating your instruction. If videos are a part of that multi-faceted plan, great. If they are not, still great.'

 

"Sams seems to concur: “Anyone who blindly adopts ‘The Flipped Classroom’ (or inquiry, or lecturing, or unschooling, or whatever) model and never modifies it to meet the needs of his or her students will blindly lead his or her students into educational ruin.”

 

Entering Phase Three

 

Moving a lecture online changes where that information is consumed, not necessarily the degree of student engagement or its effectiveness. Curricula provider Mathalicious critiqued Khan Academy as “one of the most dangerous phenomena in education today.” That argument is not directed at the site itself, but centers around the negative impact Khan may have on innovation. The Khan style of teaching is the same step-by-step process that students have seen for generations:

 

'Khan Academy is great for what it is — a supplemental resource; homework help — but we’ve turned it into something it’s not. Indeed, something it was never intended to be.'

 

"For Fred Singer, CEO of Echo360, the Flipped Classroom movement represents an important progression toward “Phase Three” of education reform: blended learning. Meaning, the digital form moves beyond simply augmenting face-to-face teaching into a peer role where online and offline interaction directly supports learning goals. State legislators are coming closer to endorsing blended learning as a required experience."

20 Reasons to Switch to Google+ | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

I LOVE Google +...az

Google's answer to Facebook recently announced 100 million users. While that's still nowhere near Facebook's 800 million, it clearly has a lot to offer its users- especially those who use other Google services. The jury on Google+ remains out, but in this infographic they have come up with twenty reasons to switch to it.

On Digital Literacy - Professor Anthony Finkelstein - UCL

"...It should also provide some conceptual understanding to allow digital citizens to understand and fix simple problems and identify more complex ones...

 

...Digital literacy must include an understanding of the regulatory, economic and business structures of the digital world. Critically, digitally literate consumers should be able to recognise 'experts' or 'digital professionals' and communicate with them."
