13 Implications for Educational institutions at the primary, secondary, and post-secondary levels, are largely the products of technology infrastructure and social circumstances of the past.

The landscape has changed and educational institutions should consider how to adapt quickly in response. Some directions of change might include:

»Placing additional emphasis on developing skills such as critical thinking, insight, and analysis capabilities

»Integrating new-media literacy into education programs

»Including experiential learning that gives prominence to soft skills—such as the ability to collaborate, work in groups, read social cues, and respond adaptively

»Broadening the learning constituency beyond teens and young adults through to adulthood

»Integrating interdisciplinary training that allows students todevelop skills and knowledge in a range of subjects

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 3, 7:11 PM

Google has just released a new game called Smarty Pins: Putting Trivia on the Map. It uses Google maps and allows you to pick a category and then pin the map with the correct answer (as in location). The closer you get to the correct location, the more "miles" you have. You can gain miles by answering quickly, but the clock ticks down.
What are the topics?

Featured topics on this day included March Madness and World Cup Trivia. The other topics to choose from are:

* Arts and Culture

* Science and Geography

* Sports and Games

* Entertainment

* History and Current Events

For students who like trivia this would be a good game. It might also be used as a classroom activity with groups playing when you need a break.

* Subject - does it focus in a particular area or not

* Description

* High resolution - many images available today may be of low resolution

* License - Creative Commons, Public Domain, or specific attributions that may be required

* Safety - is this a site that is appropriate for students or may there be cause for concern

The post then splits the list into a variety of areas:
* Search Engines

* Large Crowdsourced Collections

* U.S. Government Collections

* Unique Collections, including

Robin Good's comment, July 9, 12:12 AM
Hi Ana, first of all thanks for all the interesting stuff you find and scoop. You are a treasure trove. I'd appreciate though a bit more vetting of your sources and their content as to avoid articles like these which do provide a set of tools names but include no links, references, screenshots or an omogeneous way to review them. On the surface and from the title it looks great, but as you dig into it, you leave with quite a different impression. Given you are my trusted guide on some of these, I'd love for you to be a bit more severe in your selections in spite of quantity of scoops.

A Quick, No-Nonsense Guide to Basic Instructional Design Theory | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

"Of the many eLearning theories that influence the practice, three of them are used by professionals on a daily basis...Practice and theory actually goes hand in hand. This is true not only in instructional design but in any other field or discipline. Theory, far from crippling your practice, will actually help you improve the quality of your eLearning material. While a learning theory won't answer all of your design problems, it offers clarity throughout your process and directs you toward finding solutions."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 4, 7:02 AM

Learn more about three learning theories of instructional design in this post:

* Constructivism

* Cognitivism

* Behaviorism

Why? Each theory looks at "HOW" students learn. Understanding the theories helps you design activities that will help learners move forward in their learning process.

The infographic provides a definition for each of the theories and then provides ideas on what each theory helps the learner practice.

As with most infographics from SHIFT's eLearning Blog, this post also provides additional information on each of the three theories as well as links to additional resources.

Explore this post to better understand why these theories are important to all teachers, in online learning, blended learning and face2face situation.
