7 Must Have Apps, Tools, and Resources That Develop Critical Thinking Skills | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Gone are the days where children were expected to memorize facts and recite them at any given time. Instead, it is hoped that children will develop critical thinking skills so that they can analyze situations, think about different outcomes, and present well-reasoned conclusions. To help children develop critical thinking skills, there are some apps, tools, and resources. Here is a list of the top seven.

How to Set Up Blubrry PowerPress to Podcast with WordPress

How to Set Up Blubrry PowerPress to Podcast with WordPress | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Blubrry is awesome. Far more than a delicious fruit rich in antioxidants or the name of what I dream Violet Beauregard would call a new tech start-up, Blubrry is the parent company of the scrumdiddlyumptious PowerPress plugin that gives WordPress audiophiles full control of their audio files.

 

Unlike services such as Libsyn and Soundcloud, which can link to your WordPress site, Blubrry PowerPress lets your primary interaction with your podcast be where you’re obviously most comfortable–your very own WordPress dashboard.

 

What is Blubrry PowerPress, Exactly?

In a nutshell, Blubrry PowerPress an all-in-one plugin that lets you upload, host, and publish a podcast entirely from your WordPress website. You don’t have to go through an external service (though you can if you want.) Everything from subscription options, a built-in player, and RSS management work right out of the box. Errr…the plugin repository....

Stop Teaching Students What to Think. Teach Them How to Think

Stop Teaching Students What to Think. Teach Them How to Think | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The challenge is not information storage but information processing. It's not about information itself but how to use information.

No, you aren't a 'visual' learner | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
It's a damning indictment of our collective resistance to truth that the point of this article still has to be restated, yet again. Amazingly, 93% of the general public and 76% of educators still erroneously believe that we should be taught in ways that match our learning styles. I assume this is so in the US - unless things have changed recently, the percentages, for teachers at least, are even worse in some other countries where the idea has been pushed harder from the top down, such as the UK and Netherlands. To be quite clear: this belief is not…

What I learned from 100 days of rejection

What I learned from 100 days of rejection | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Jia Jiang adventures boldly into a territory so many of us fear: rejection. By seeking out rejection for 100 days -- from asking a stranger to borrow $100 to requesting a "burger refill" at a restaurant -- Jiang desensitized himself to the pain and shame that rejection often brings and, in the process, discovered that simply asking for what you want can open up possibilities where you expect to find dead ends.

This series seeks to redress that, by taking a selection of studies and making sense of the important information for teachers.

Memory For Details Matures Gradually

Memory For Details Matures Gradually | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Summary: Contrary to popular assumption that areas of the brain responsible for memory are fully matured by age six, researchers report the maturation process continues until the age of at least 14.

Source: Max Planck Institute.

High-resolution imaging provides new insights into the development of the human brain.

In contrast to previous assumptions, the hippocampus, a brain structure that is central to learning and memory, does not complete its maturation until adolescence. Scientists of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research, and the University of Stirling were able to show this for the first time using high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging. The study’s findings were recently published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS).
