Everybody needs to find the needle but the digital haystack grows so fast that only things like Scoop can help us to keep up with the information overload.

Extrait (traduction libre) :

 

"En faisant de la "curation" avec Scoop.it, les élèves utilisent les compétences de pensée critique pour collecter, évaluer et analyser le contenu, ils peuvent identifier les tendances du discours, ils développent des compétences d'écriture dans l'expression originale, et ils interagissent, communiquent et publient à un public mondial. Mais peut-être plus important encore, les élèves pratiquent la citoyenneté numérique et la responsabilité personnelle à l'apprentissage continu."

6 Steps to Add Voice Comments to Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

6 Steps to Add Voice Comments to Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

"With this new application in Google Docs ( Drive ), teachers can now record their audio comments and share them with their students. I see this as a better way to give feedback on students' work and I do believe there are things we can express with our voice that no written code could ever capture like the tone and intonation..etc."

Becky Roehrs's curator insight, May 20, 2013 1:17 PM

Update/Tip: I tried it out-if you have to change your original document-just copy it and add voice to it-121 Writing doesn't sync with your Google Docs updates.

 

Instructors are always looking for ways to add audio feedback-I'd much prefer adding voice messages to my student's Google Docs then just text like I have in the past.

A New Mindset in Product Design -- THE Journal

A New Mindset in Product Design -- THE Journal | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
The terms "3D printing" and "additive manufacturing" refer to processes that automatically build objects layer by layer from computer data. 3D printing can accelerate the design process, improve designs and cut costs.
R.Conrath, Ed.D.'s insight:

Okay, folks. This is where it's all going to be in the very, very near future--

3D printing. We'll need technicians to work on the printers and programmers to write blueprint-like code to accommodate all the demands for the desired printing.
