The Future of E-Ducation: The Impact of Technology and Analytics on the Education Industry

This groundbreaking EdTech study examines the way that modern technology is bringing remarkable innovation into the educational sector; a field which has historically remained fairly fixed and traditional for centuries. The report analyses the degree to which education is being made into a universally accessible, innovative, personalized, and adaptive experience, and finds that the these changes will be pivotal for achieving the United Nations’ goal of universal education by 2015.

Strategies To Promote Critical Thinking in the Elementary Classroom

Strategies To Promote Critical Thinking in the Elementary Classroom | Web Site of the Week - 3.0 - SD#60 - PRN | Scoop.it

For us, critical thinking happens when students analyze and evaluate evidence, arguments, claims and beliefs. They can then learn how to make judgments and decisions based on others’ points of view, interpret information and draw conclusions.

Muy importante siempre promover el pensamiento crítico

enrique rubio royo's curator insight, June 16, 2014 6:26 AM

Entre las diversas estrategias para promocionar el pensamiento crítico, se proponen cuatro (INQUIRY, QUESTIONING, PROBLEM SOLVING Y COLLABORATION), por ser, según el autor, las de mayor impacto.

Buena síntesis a la hora de implementar en el aula, de manera colaborativa,  el aprendizaje significativo y el pensamiento crítico         , siendo clave plantear 'guiding questions', de naturaleza abierta ('open-ended'), en la actividad diaria con los estudiantes.

Michel J. Boustani's curator insight, June 16, 2014 8:17 AM

Students (future adults) need to learn what is and how to critical thinking from their own discoveries. SO that they will earn the freedom of critical thinking in their own time, from their own realities... I like this paper, the subject is an endless work in progress for a better social collective and individual well being!

Sli.do is a great assistant when you present with Prezi. It lets you have instant audience interaction via real-time polls.

Basic account is free but your data are public and they are retained for 1 week, however, it is a useful application for classroom activities.

Sli.do also works with Google Glass and Eventbrite.

The Geography of Language

"Over the course of human history, thousands of languages have developed from what was once a much smaller number. How did we end up with so many? And how do we keep track of them all? Alex Gendler explains how linguists group languages into language families, demonstrating how these linguistic trees give us crucial insights into the past."

Chris Plummer's curator insight, January 11, 11:46 PM

Summary- This video explains how so many languages came to be and why. By the early existence of human there was a such smaller variety of languages. Tribes that spoke one language would often split in search of new recourses. Searching tribe would develop in many new different ways than the original tribe. new foods, land, and other elements created a radically different language than the original. 

 

Insight- In unit 3 we study language as a big element of out chapter. One key question in chapter 6 was why are languages distributed the way they are. It is obvious from the video that languages are distributed they way they are is because of the breaking up from people which forced people to develop differently thus creating a different language. As this process continues, there become more and more branches of a language family.

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic | Web Site of the Week - 3.0 - SD#60 - PRN | Scoop.it

Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level  you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, so your expectations and your teaching approach may differ quite noticeably from your colleagues. But the nagging question still remains for many teachers – what exactly is digital literacy?
