Jennifer Colin's curator insight, October 24, 2015 1:39 PM

As a school that has recently acquired Chromebooks, we are constantly looking for apps that teachers can use in their classrooms. Kids Sight Words offers one such quality app.  Kids Sight Words would be especially beneficial for our elementary reading specialist. It's no secret that tasks in the form of games are more appealing to children, and this colorful and interactive app is a great method for helping kids improve reading fluency, which is a foundational skill for success in the rest of students' educational careers.  I will be sure to make our elementary technology teacher and reading specialist aware of this fun (and free?) application.

October 1st was the deadline for retailers and credit card issuing companies to switch over to using the new EMV credit cards which contain a computer chip that creates and encrypts a new number every time the card is used, which will dramatically reduce the amount of credit card fraud.  Under the newly implemented regulations, if a business does not switch its credit card processing machines over to the new EMV cards or if a credit card issuer does not provide new EMV chip cards to its customers, in the event of credit card fraud, the responsibility for loss will be on either the credit card issuer or the retailer, whichever has not complied with the new law.  Ingenious scam artists, the only criminals we refer to as artists, are taking advantage of the situation by contacting people by email posing as their credit card company informing them that in order to issue a new EMV chip card, they need them to either update their account by confirming some personal information or click on a link to continue the process. This is a case of you are in trouble with either option.   If you provide personal information in response to the email, you have just turned over this information to a scammer who will use it to make you a victim of identity theft. Alternatively, if you click on the link, you may end up downloading keystroke logging malware that will steal the personal information from your computer including your Social Security number, passwords and sensitive financial information that will be used to make you a victim of identity theft.

Video on how to use the organic amplification process to promote content - the identification of potential target customers and influencers, determination of what they care about, discovery of what kind of content resonates and obtaining mentions where targets are. This process takes sweat equity, but Rand gives you the techniques and tools to be smart about it.

3 Key Factors for Creating a "Maker Culture" at Your School -- School Planning & Management

3 Key Factors for Creating a "Maker Culture" at Your School -- School Planning & Management | Virtual school | Scoop.it
As the way we learn and work has evolved, teaching styles, curriculum and classroom spaces must change as well. Our students need to think “like innovators” in order to solve increasingly complex, global and multi-disciplinary problems. These problems require skills like flexible thinking, resilience and curiosity — skills that are not nurtured in today’s traditional educational models. As architects, we know that design can profoundly affect and enhance teaching and learning. School design must not only accommodate 21st century learning methods, but also reinforce the skills students will need for an evolving society. Thoughtful, creative and flexible design of these spaces is critical in realizing the learning goals.
