While leadership is not something that is developed overnight, it is a skill that can be developed. The following tips are proven to help you grow as a globally-minded leader:

It’s not overtly taught in many teacher-prep programs, but learning how to think creatively is key not only to student success, but teacher longevity as well. Teachers encounter situations every day that require creative thinking.

A Wonderful Wheel featuring iPad Apps for Autistic Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Wheel featuring iPad Apps for Autistic Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it

"I must admit that apps for autistic learners are really scarce and hard to find. A few months ago I posted here a list some powerful apps for autism and today while I was looking for new apps that might have been created since the publication of that list I came across this wonderful wheel.

I know that the first thing that comes to mind when you see this wheel is the popular pedagogy Wheel created by Allan Carrington in which he provided suggestions for 62 apps based on Bloom's Taxonomy. The present wheel is developed by Mark Coppin in which he featured a wide variety of apps for autistic students."

Muito bom o artigo, e uma ótima ferramenta para pesquisa de alunos e professores, para melhorar seu desempenho e utilizar melhor esta ferramenta tão presente no nosso dia a dia que é a internet, a importância da leitura não é muito apreciada por muitas pessoas, que já se acostumaram com a cultura da informação mastigada que a TV e a internet consolidaram em nosso país.

Se o problema é tempo, os bookmarks estão sempre oferecendo a opção read later, e com o apresentado no artigo acima, ainda resume todo o texto para os mais apressadinhos, vale a pena conferir e utilizar.

You've arrived at the tip of the iceberg.

It may be ironic that it takes significant search skills to find the wealth of information about informaiton fluency packed into the 21CIF website. To open doors to content, this page will introduce you to hyperlinked content that will help you to teach students how to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information.
