Marie Schoeman's curator insight, July 7, 9:51 PM

There are many websites on the Internet that now offer FREE of charge learning materials. Now even the poorest people could afford to be better educated than many of Harvard’s graduates, all they need is access to a computer(does not even have to be personal one, it could be the one that the local library offers for public use)

10 Free Tools to Help You Manage Your Content | ICT | Scoop.it

You’re bound to end up with a set of tools – which help to manage your workflow – after some time spent on a blogging spree. I’m very traditional, and I try to keep it as minimal as possible. Any of the below tools I’ve used at least once, and I’ve tagged them as tools that can help to create, manage and edit content. I hope they’ll prove to be of use to you.

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations | ICT | Scoop.it

by Michele Pecansky-Brock

 

"Humans are visual creatures. Creating and engaging with visual content was more innate to our species than text.  But beyond the "what came first" argument, we must understand the power of images to engage the affective domain of learning.  For a moment, reflect on your childhood memories. What comes to mind? How much of what you remember is imprinted in memory because someone took photographs of those moments?  "Our personal memories, our lives are shaped through images. And as they have become more accessible to educators, understanding how to use them effectively to persuade, impact, empower, and inspire others is an important part of communicating."

Tracking the lightning quick development of modern cities is easy with Google Street View, but a big new project aims to provide context for the past 1,000 years of urban evolution in Venice, Italy. The Venice Time Machine will digitize and catalog a staggering amount of historical documents—a combined 50 miles worth of shelves!—then turn the data into an internet archive and adaptable 3D model.

Visualizing for the Color Blind | ICT | Scoop.it

 Color blindness is a color vision deficiency which affects roughly 8% of the North American male population and 0.5% of the female population. So when designing data visualizations and dashboards, it’s important to keep this group of people in mind to make sure they are seeing the same results as everyone else.

"With the recent announcement of Google Classroom, school districts and educators across the country that are currently integrating Google Apps for Education into their classrooms are awaiting the opportunity to gain access to Google’s workflow solution. While there are currently a number of workflow solutions and approaches within Google Drive that classroom teachers can take that range from manual organization and file / folder sharing to advanced automation with tools such as Doctopus, Google Classroom provides a viable option that strikes a balance – blending tight integration with Google Drive, an intuitive interface and advanced features that experienced Google Drive users are looking for."

What does inquiry learning look like? - What Ed Said

What does inquiry learning look like? - What Ed Said | ICT | Scoop.it

"There’s only one thing I found jarring in their feedback and it relates to my beliefs about inquiry learning. They noted that neither students nor teachers seem able to identify what particular inquiry cycles we follow. They said the children to whom they spoke didn’t seem to be aware of the specific ‘stages’ of inquiry and that most teachers couldn’t articulate how an inquiry cycle directs our planning.

 

To be honest, I’m glad."
