So I’m trying to better understand how people learn–not now they’re taught in terms of teaching strategies, but more so learning strategies–only not really strategies. Learning actions, or cognitive actions.
Self-directed and social learning will undoubtedly be at the core of any sort of future learning–both near and far future. But to improve learning in both self-directed and teacher-centered learning environments, it can be illuminating to look past the activities, projects, and courses to try to see what sort of brain-level actions learners are performing. Like push-ups, wind sprints, and weight training are physical actions that help train an athlete’s body, what kind of cognitive actions train a learner’s mind?
A Guide to Citing Images, a new infographic from our friends at NoodleTools, offers a MLA-aligned flow chart to guide researchers through a variety of image citation situations. But it is not just about image documentation.
It asks learners to ask themselves a few important questions before using and documenting images that were born digital.
NoodleTools labels an image born digital if: it was created in digital form, or if you do not know where the image itself is physically stored.
Web 2.0 is the terminology assigned to define websites that have been refurbished from an earlier version of the internet.
Since most Web 2.0 features are free, websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, etc. have developed remarkably fast and, as these sites grow, more innovative features are being added using new technologies. In fact, Web 2.0 will continue to grow in the future.
The simultaneous growth of these new trends is outside the scope of Web 2.0’s definition and this is where the next generation of the internet will begin. The third generation of the internet – the Web 3.0 – will completely alter social networking.
‘Web 3.0’ is a network of information that can be routed both directly or indirectly using computers and includes television quality video, three dimensional reproductions of images, enhanced reality, man-made semantic barometers, and the all-encompassing sensors – wireless and broadband.

Anyone who has used the Prezi platform would know that creating a Prezi and uploading it to Prezi.com is easy enough, however when it comes to converting it to a YouTube video, there seems to be no native method of doing so...
Chances are, when you’ve been assigned a research paper, your first idea is that you’ll to do a quick search on Google. Perhaps you’ve been surprised when your instructor says that Googling for resources is not allowed.
