The 5S should be coming out at the end of this month or maybe not until October. This feature will be on all the phones!

When the iPhone 5S will be released there will be less than a handful of smartphone equipped with fingerprint recognition. Apple won't be the first to include this in it's flagship model, but i'm sure their implementation will have something unique.

@james: usualy fall is a very strategical moment for Apple announcements. The iPhone 5S and 5C and the other products to come will make the Apple stock climb. In my opinion, it's time to buy.

Social Media is both a stand alone communication channel, but it should also be used to feed people into a web site where a stronger relationship can be built. So tweets with links direct to a particular page, a subject on a web site or a blog work really well.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 14, 2013 10:23 PM

Submrge is a website that has the tag line “Deeper Thinking About Games and Education.” It is divided into a number of sections including Games, Activities and Links.

What makes this site unique is the information it provides on each game. “Each game page includes important information for teachers, like benefits of play, educational issues for discussion, easily accessible game information, and activities related to the game on Submrge.” In addition to this information there is also a page for each game that includes “important information on the level and subject, but also the activity’s relationship to Bloom’s Taxonomy, Common Core Standards, 21st Century Skills, and the H.E.A.T. Framework. If you are wondering what HEAT Framework stands for think of Higher Order Thinking, Engaged Learning, Authentic Connections and Technology Use. This page also provides a list of learning styles and the games I checked included an Essential Question,

The Links section has resources in the following areas:

* More on Games as Text

* Advice on Games in the Classroom

* General Games Collections (many content-specific)

If you use games in your classroom, or are considering doing so, this website will provide additional resources that may provide you with new ideas.

Out With the Degree, In With the Badge: How Badges Motivate Learning

Out With the Degree, In With the Badge: How Badges Motivate Learning | Technology | Scoop.it

"Catherine Lacey, a student at the University of Western Australia, is a Level 40 Hero in biology.

That’s her ranking on OpenStudy, where she spends up to 30 hours per week answering homework questions posed by students around the world.

Hero is the hardest badge to attain on the site, indicating considerable time spent helping other students. And Lacey doesn’t just help beginners—one of the many merit badges she’s earned from OpenStudy is for tutoring students in MIT open biology courses."

As someone who just started to elarn about badges, this is really intresting for me!

Laura Graceffa's curator insight, August 16, 2013 6:15 PM

Can it work in an environment that discourages making differences in achievement obvious?

Yvonne Marie Webber's comment, August 26, 2013 11:35 PM
@Laura, I really think it can. the badges do not have to focus on product, but can focus on each student collaborating, sharing, contributing in the way that is best for that student. The badges do not have to be given in a hierarchal manner.
