The power of film | TED Playlists | TED | Technology | Scoop.it
Few things are as magical as sitting back in a theater with a hushed crowd to enjoy a film, but what you see on the screen isn't everything. Hear from visionaries -- from Hollywood, Bollywood, Nollywood -- on how to make movies.
Anne Gray's insight:

Love TED.  I am going to use these with students who want to make some short films as an enrichment class.

I see a 'back to school with Google Docs' movement on the blogosphere.  It makes sense. Teachers have always been good bargain hunters.  Google Docs delivers value at the right price; Free!

Excellent guidelines to go by. The internet is such a reflection of what goes on in the human mind, from bright and genius ideas and behavior, to dark and stupid. I'd rather be on the bright side.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, September 24, 2013 2:46 PM

Manners do matter.

This is a graphic example for the article, but the site is a cybersafety site in the UK and has lots of information for parents about online safety for their children. It also tests their knowledge.

Greta Brewin's curator insight, August 4, 2013 6:25 AM

This is a link is designed to help teacher assist their students to develop strong online research skills. As teachers in this technology era, it is important to teach our student critical thinking. There is just so much false information on the web, which students need to be able to independently assess the credibility of the information they are reading. This article demonstrates how to encourage 'smart searching' and encourages you to be critical of your resources credibility.
