W. Bradley Gooderham's curator insight, June 20, 11:22 PM

In 2013/14, I only used novels in English class and even then only to provide time away from a screen.  Every other class and activity used digital resources and engaged technology to find, sort, contextualize, and share information.   This is a very interesting infographic. 

Dyana Mason's curator insight, June 23, 11:06 PM

Digital devices are re-shaping the classroom. I've seen some new tools in action.  As educators, we should learn how students are using these new tools and adjust our teaching appropriately.

Dian J Harrison, MSW, MPA's curator insight, July 8, 8:09 PM

This definitely speaks to the support that older students will need to be successful in online programs!  For some of these students, the technology learning curve will be steep but doable....... especially if they are used to reading a book in print!

Amy Melendez's insight:

From the post: We can start the process of leadership coaching IN the classroom. All this takes is an intentional approach and tools that teachers can use to teach leadership as part of their curriculum! 

Just like we coach our kids on the court, track or wrestling mat, we need to coach them on how to lead positive change and avoid the inferior behaviors that come so easily with aggression and unmanaged conflict.

A Moodlemas Carol: resources for past, present and future

A Moodlemas Carol: resources for past, present and future | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

I’ll be taking an unofficial holiday break until the new year starting this week. While I don’t have planned posts I just might get a few out when I find something truly too good not to share (as often Moodle-related news is). In any event, so as to not leave you with nothing to read or brush up on that’s somewhat connected to my favorite LMS, here are some resources to invest your time over the holiday break provided with Dickensian theme.

* A few years ago I published 12 days of Moodlemas (from which the title of this post is borrowed) which includes a host of links, resources, books and more shared across the community. While things have changed a lot since the original publishing there are always worthwhile resources in the archives: relive something from Christmas Past with the 12 days of Moodlemas

 

* For Moodlemas Present let’s turn to the latest Moodle release, 2.8 and all of the amazing features that it’s brought to the community. 2.8 brought major changes to the Gradebook, user interface, fun tricks with email (like replying to forums and uploading docs to private files), and loads more. Moodle HQ has done a brilliant job of highlighting the features via video and documentation. Check out the videos for 2.8 here.

 

* Finally for Moodlemas future. It’s certainly bright with Moodle 2.9 and 3.0 due out in 2015 and at the very beginning of the year anyone can join in and become a Moodler by signing up for the LearnMoodle MOOC (part 2) which starts in January. There are loads of Moodlemoots to attend as well so add some Moodle to your future by following along or getting involved.

Can You Use that Photo? Understanding Fair Use and What Photos Can and Can’t Be Used Legally on Your Blog

Can You Use that Photo? Understanding Fair Use and What Photos Can and Can’t Be Used Legally on Your Blog | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it
According to MDG Advertising, 37% of Facebook users engage more fully with a post that has a photo included; and 67% of customers state that the quality of a product’s image helps them decide whether or not to purchase the product.

One of the reasons that sites like Pinterest have become so popular is that people find the images engaging. You’ve probably heard it said that a picture is “worth 1000 words”. This is true because humans are visually driven.
