It is my hope that many share and see and follow the advice given by authors such as Alex Rister in cleaning up presentations and making the message receiver's job much easier. Forget the Rule of 6s and stop handing out your presentations before you read the PowerPoint slides words-for-word.

6 Illuminating Big Data Infographics | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Is Big Data still a big mystery to you? 

In recent years, the volume of information coming into companies has exploded, so that many IT organizations are dealing with extremely large sets of data. 

IT leaders are rethinking many aspects of how they manage and deliver information, from investments in infrastructure and analytics tools to new policies for organizing and accessing data so they can deliver more of it, faster. They are concerned that if they don't have the right tools and architectures to deal with all that information, then big data can be a big problem. Check out these infographics on Big Data to see the impact...

Lou Salza's curator insight, February 8, 2013 4:01 PM

The iPad can be a brilliant motivational tool for children in the classroom. The ease-of-use, coupled with the speed that you can get results means that it can be the perfect tool for integrating into your literacy planning. And, as many schools don’t have 1:1 tablet computers it can also mean that the collaborative and group aspect of the technology can be harnessed.

I’ve been working with teachers who are developing the writing process in an attempt to motivate their boy writers. We have been looking at the writing process and working out where the enthusiasm lags, or where skills need developing. This part of the process is important, reflecting on why the children are stalling, or on what the challenges might be really helps the planning process.

Finally we looked at what apps the schools have, what apps the teachers are confident with and, most importantly, what apps would support the different ‘stumbling blocks’ the children face.
