Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

Love these maps.  Bubbler is so right in RI and I never knew it was called that anywhere else.  However I think they got the one about the subs wrong.  I still call those sandwhiches a grinder.  I went to Texas once and ask for a grinder and I still think the guy there is laughing at me to this day.  Its really is great to see the difference though even though this is one country with many different backgrounds.

Amy Marques's curator insight, February 6, 1:29 PM

These 22 maps are a great representation of how linguistically different the United States truly is. Depending  where you are from I the US shows how you say something differently. For example, in the Northeast and South, people pronounce the word caramel in two words, "cara and mel" and in the west and west coast it is pronounced " car-mel". Even the word crayon is pronounced differently depending where you live.

Children's Media Use in America


Tuesday, October 29, 2013 Zero to Eight: Children's Media Use in America 2013 Two years ago, only eight percent of families with kids under the age of eight had tablets in their homes. Now that number is 40 percent. The average amount of time kids spend using a mobile device each day has tripled. And -- for the first time -- the average time spent with "traditional" screen media has decreased.

What does this mean? Our kids are growing up mobile. This week, Common Sense Media announced our latest study, Zero to Eight: Children's Media Use in America 2013. The results are remarkable.

Phonics Studio is a free iPad app that has received glowing reviews from speech-language pathologists. The app provides more than 2,500 flashcards that students can use to practice pronouncing more than 200 sounds. After opening the app students select a letter from the alphabet then a sound. Each sound has a collection of flashcards. To practice pronunciation students can listen to a recording and then create their own recordings (open the preferences panel to turn on the built-in recordings). The person working with a student can mark the student’s recording correct or incorrect.

Phonics Studio can be used by more than one student. The app supports creating multiple student profiles. The app also supports creating your own flashcards.

This new report, “Learning in the 21st Century: Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers,” is the latest in the series and provides new insights that will inform college and university based teacher preparation programs as well as the induction and professional development processes within K-12 schools and districts.
