Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 15, 2013 10:30 PM

Are you interested in learning more about US copyright law for educators (and also for those in Australia) or how to find and adapt Creative Common materials for you class? These two classes (and others) are being offered at the School of Open through P2PU. There are also courses that you may take any time. For the courses mentioned above you must register by Sunday, March 17th and they begin next week. The others are available at any time.

Many schools are beginning to look at using open source materials, and if you search this Scoop.it you will find quite a few resources about open source materials, but these are the first classes I have seen that are geared to educators around issues that we should educate ourselves if we are going to be going in the direction of open source. If you have the time consider signing up for one of the classes.

5 Tips for Providing Effective Feedback to Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Tips for Providing Effective Feedback to Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

In a recent post published by Edutopia entitled " 5 research-based tips for providing students with meaningful feedback", Stenger made a strong case for the importance of feedback in students learning. She backed her argument with a plethora of scientific studies and came up with some useful suggestions for teachers to consider when giving feedback to students.

The End of Neighborhood Schools

The End of Neighborhood Schools | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
New Orleans is home to the nation’s first all-charter district. Is this the future of education?

Via Artur Coelho
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Interesting that we keep hearing you cannot improve schools by throwing money at them ...then why are the Gates and Walmart heirs and other rich people throwing it at charters rather than neighborhood public schools? People are always free to donate to public schools as well.

 

Community public schools would leave the power of control with those in the community rather than the owners of the system sold to the community. Dividing a community effort has much the same outcome as dividing a family. The unit and the connection is weakened.  Rather than playing on the same team for common community goals each is instead a threat or competition to the other. If the goal is to drop the teaching credentials to lower the standards of entry teachers to people who didn't bother to train to enter the profession but instead desire to compete with other teachers for pay then that model should be allowed to the public schools as well if it actually is a valid model.

 

Competition is not really a team sport...it is dog eat dog activity and everyone knows that to be true. Competitive games are fun as a thrill at a sport activity, but let us face the fact nearly everyone at the game is sitting out and watching at the end of the day and not playing on the field. Those that are only very, very rarely stay in the game for a life time. Is that really what we want for our lifetime learning experience?

3D-printed internet traffic looks a lot like your first attempt at pottery | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Unless you live under the tyranny of a bandwidth cap, you probably aren't spending much time looking at the amount of data passing through your home

Via Artur Coelho
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

A bandwidth cap is tyranny of thought, knowledge, opportunity and innovation. I haven't ever heard it stated better. The word tyranny is exactly the right word! Most people with these caps hesitate to utilize the internet to its full advantage in their lives to avoid high, costly penalties that may as well be called fines. This is used as a way of also forcing people to pay for more than they will ever use just to avoid the fines that normally work to keep them well under their available data amount.

 

That behavior allows ISPs to underserve and do far less upgrading of their service which is already often unavailable or weak in many areas even for those who already pay for service. That even further curtails their use of the WEB and the information and knowledge that is there or that they might share with others. 

 

Mobile devices are the main way most around the world get their connections and in many places, especially in America, mobile data connections come with data caps as a way to force less use, thus require less work for improved services from ISPs and play gotcha games with those they are supposed to serve in order to garnish more profits for what are often poor service companies no matter how big the company name is.
