"But with one exception, features are rarely the deciding factor for faculty to choose one platform over another at Stanford. What’s the exception to faculty not basing their decisions on features?  Work turned in as a team.  Some degree of collaboration is supported on all three platforms, such as discussion forums and wikis, but the only one of these platforms with explicit support right now for team-based work is NovoEd.

It's Time for Social and Emotional Learning for All | teKNOWLEDgy | Scoop.it

Over the last decade, increased attention has been paid to the social and emotional learning (SEL) needs of children. This area of learning is necessary and essential to address -- for children and adults.


It's time that schools take responsibility for meeting the entire range of learning needs that educators have -- the need to use new technologies, to understand and implement new standards, to use new assessment strategies, and their needs to attend to their own social and emotional learning.

Open Content Program (The Getty)

Open Content Program (The Getty) | teKNOWLEDgy | Scoop.it
The Open Content Program provides free, unrestricted access to the Getty's digital resources.

 

Why Open Content?

The Getty adopted the Open Content Program because we recognized the need to share images of works of art for free and without restriction, so that all those who create or appreciate art—scholars, artists, art lovers, and entrepreneurs—will have greater access to high-quality digital images for their studies and projects. Art inspires us, and imagination and creativity lead to artistic expressions that expand knowledge and understanding. The Getty sincerely hopes that people will use the open content images for a wide range of activities and that they will share the fruits of their labors with others.

 

What's in Open Content?

Currently, there are more than 87,000 images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute available through the Open Content Program, including more than 72,000 from the Research Institute's Foto Arte Minore archive, which features photographs of the art and architecture of Italy over 30 years by German photographer and scholar Max Hutzel (1913–1988). Other images include paintings, drawings, manuscripts, photographs, antiquities, sculpture, decorative arts, artists' sketchbooks, watercolors, rare prints from the 16th through the 18th century, and 19th-century architectural drawings of cultural landmarks. Over time, images from the Getty Conservation Institute will be added, as well as more images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute.

Uso didático de mapas conceituais melhora noções e conexões do conteúdo

Esquemas para resumir um texto, quadros sinópticos, listas de tópicos antes de escrever uma dissertação, organogramas, quadros que ilustram uma reportagem – formas de organização gráfica estão em toda parte, mostrando a utilidade da representação visual para a compreensão de processos que se encadeiam. Esses exemplos, no entanto, têm seus limites, e um modo certeiro de superá-los são os mapas conceituais, que vêm sendo pesquisados, como forma de gestão de conhecimento, pelo professor Paulo Correia, da Escola de Artes, Ciências e Humanidades (EACH),  da Universidade de São Paulo (USP).
