Good article to share with your teachers who are looking to improve student research skills to meet standards.

Maria Persson's comment, June 17, 2013 11:00 PM
If this happens in the early years of learning it will not be such an issue at the tertiary level where plagiarism is still a real problem!
Maria Persson's curator insight, June 17, 2013 11:07 PM

A number of great points that are both practical and theoritical in terms of how to assist students' understanding of digital literacy skills, preparing them for the future, increasing their understanding of what the future might bring!

Love this graphic, part of a solid Social Media Today article about how color converts. 

Drora Arussy's curator insight, June 16, 2013 9:46 AM

Color speaks to us - from what the teacher wears in a frontal classroom to what the background color is in a virtual assessment. We want our students to connect and "buy into" what we are teaching, branding is so important. As a side note, note that blue (of blue and white fame) signifies dependability and strength, isn't that what we want our students to see when they think of Hebrew and Israel? Of course, we would love to have all the colors blended in at certain points, be aware of the colors you use across the board - literal and virtual.

C'est une tendance de fond : la représentation graphique des données, éléments clés de l'entreprise, des compétences ou des valeurs... Mais que faire lorsqu'on manque de ressources (pas de graphiste/infographiste) en interne ou en externe ? Les 10 outils présentés sont intéressants, souvent gratuit et le post comprend en plus des conseils pour conceptualiser son infographie, étape indispensable avant même de passer à la réalisation.
