Juno — Online tests, quizzes, worksheets & textbooks

Juno — Online tests, quizzes, worksheets & textbooks | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Create, share, or buy online tests, quizzes, worksheets, tutorials, and textbooks. Scores are submitted directly to any compatible gradebook.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

You can design test and worksheets and have them graded and directly posted to a grade book. Try this out for free a bit longer. I think they will be asking a small fee for the service next year. I use Jupitergrades.com as my back-up grade book as our system is prone to go down causing data to have to be re-entered.[nightmare!] It is great for the beginning of semesters when students are often adding and dropping classes and admin often runs a bit behind on updating what is going on with my class roll as the dust settles. This is my personal class grade notes made easy to keep,change and find. I love Jupitergrades.com and hope to develop some documents for my class on Juno this summer.

 

Juno is a new program that works with Jupitergradebook.com and is looking for teachers to develop free share or for fee materials. I have not yet tried to see how it works on transferring grades directly to the grade book, but if Juno works as well as Jupiter grade book you will love it. The Jupitergrades.com actually make doing grades even fun at times because it is so easy and efficient and so far I have never lost data. I do not use full names of students since it is not our official system wide grade book. 

 

It would likely make an amazing system wide program if you are in need of one I would highly recomend this…. but I also like a program where I don’t have to wait for an admin person to get things into the system while I have to be getting on with business. I am tempted not to tell the County heads about what an amazing program it is just so I can have the easy self-management feature… There are awesome features that would connect teacher’s efforts together if the program were used school wide that are not available as individuals user even if you pay for the extended services for teachers yourself. Teacher paid service allow your students and parents to access the data on their grades only and communicate with you through e-mail, (Idon't do conflict's on non-school official programs and really only person-to-person. The paid program can allow the grade book to alert parents to missing assignments and student progress if the parent wants to sign up for that. My gradebook is unofficial so I make that clear that it is a work in progress record subject to change as new data is entered or missing work is made-up or zeros are added once the work is not made-up.

 

 I like having a backup grade book and sources I control as a professional. Key word there is professional…don’t forget professional conduct and use of any tool. I address all problems only through school official formats or in person-to-person meetings not through electronics. I make it clear the Jupiter is a work in progress grade system for me and not the final or official grade though it should track pretty close. I like it because I can add and drop and change things as fast as I need to while I often have to wait for the shared school system wide program managers to get to things of that sort…. which is always confusing and hard to manage for me when I have to count on a third party to update data I need to keep current info filed into. I have rarely known this program to be off-line and can access it from anywhere to include data and that helps me get my work done better.

Helena Capela's curator insight, March 16, 2013 6:02 AM

I agree with the author. To create with technology and do it creatively is more important than simply use it. Balance and know how to do it is also important.

Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, March 16, 2013 11:37 AM

Although the heading is misleading, the author has brought up some good points. Most teachers go through three phases:

 

1. Excitement to try out new technological gimmicks in the classroom.

2. Discouragement after the gimmick no longer interests the students.

3. Integration of effective technology to enhance the student's learning.

 

The comments are also a great read and echo this sentiment.

History of Interactivity in Galleries | Boston Cyberarts @ ATNE Salon

History of Interactivity in Galleries | Boston Cyberarts @ ATNE Salon | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Join us tomorrow night, Wednesday, March 27 at 7:30pm for an ATNE salon with Boston Cyberarts director, George Fifield.

 

In the early 1980s a new form of interactive installation art came into being, specifically designed for the white box of the gallery or museum. These gallery-based installations explored numerous themes, including ideas of expanded cinema and evolutionary simulation. The issue of the interface became a problem: What kind of mechanism drove the interaction?  In the mid-1990s new work was developed that sought to eliminate the mechanical interface and replace it with an interface we are more familiar with: our own body.

If there is one area where we could really use some creativity is in the area of PD! I could really appreciate this quote, "Spurts of time riddled with interruptions aren’t conducive to creativity because each time our focus is wrecked, we struggle to get back to the point we’d reached in our creative “flow”." Time is always an issue but it's so necessary to creativity.

EC: Less digging = cheaper broadband. Commission proposes rules to cut broadband installation costs | EU Info Society News

EC: Less digging = cheaper broadband. Commission proposes rules to cut broadband installation costs | EU Info Society News | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

The European Commission today proposed new rules to cut by 30% the cost of rolling out high-speed Internet. Civil engineering, such as the digging up of roads to lay down fibre, accounts for up to 80% of the cost of deploying high-speed networks. Today's proposal may save companies €40 to 60 billion.

 

High-speed broadband is the backbone of the telecoms and wider Digital Single Market, the Commission is attempting to build. Its rollout is currently slowed down by a patchwork of rules and administrative practices at national and sub-national levels. "In most places, today's rules hurt Europe's competitiveness," said European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes.

 

Today's draft regulation builds on best practices in place today in Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Sweden and United Kingdom, but leaves organisational issues very much to the discretion of Member States.

 

Neelie Kroes said: "Everyone deserves fast broadband. I want to burn the red tape that is stopping us for getting there. The European Commission wants to make it quicker and cheaper to get that broadband."

 

The Rules would become directly applicable across the EU after agreement by the European Parliament and Council.

 

The Commission wants to tackle four main problem areas:

 

Ensuring that new or renovated buildings are high-speed-broadband-ready.

Opening access to infrastructure on fair and reasonable terms and conditions, including price, to existing ducts, conduits, manholes, cabinets, poles, masts, antennae installations, towers and other supporting constructions.

Ending insufficient coordination of civil works, by enabling any network operator to negotiate agreements with other infrastructure providers

Simplifying complex and time-consuming permit granting, especially for masts and antennas, by granting or refusing permits within six months by default and allowing requests to be made through a single point of contact.

 

There is currently little transparency on existing physical infrastructure suitable for broadband rollout and no appropriate commonly-used rules when deploying broadband across the EU. At the moment, there is no market-place for physical infrastructure and the potential to use infrastructure belonging to other utilities. Regulations in certain Member States even discourage utility companies from cooperating with telecom operators.
