UNICEF - Βίντεο για τα Δικαιώματα των Παιδιών | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Τα κινούμενα σχέδια για τα Δικαιώματα του Παιδιού είναι μια πρωτοβουλία της UNICEF με στόχο να ενημερώσει το κοινό παγκόσμια για τα δικαιώματα των παιδιών. Το κάθε σύντομο σποτ που δημιουργήθηκε μέσα από αυτή την πρωτοβουλία, με τη συνεργασία πολλών γνωστών στούντιο κινουμένων σχεδίων, απεικονίζει ένα δικαίωμα που περιγράφεται στη Σύμβαση για τα Δικαιώματα του Παιδιού, όπως η εκπαίδευση, η προστασία από την παιδική εργασία, η ελευθερία έκφρασης κ.α.

Constructivism as a Paradigm for Teaching and Learning

Constructivism as a Paradigm for Teaching and Learning | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Constructivism is basically a theory -- based on observation and scientific study -- about how people learn. It says that people construct their own understanding and knowledge of the world, through experiencing things and reflecting on those experiences. When we encounter something new, we have to reconcile it with our previous ideas and experience, maybe changing what we believe, or maybe discarding the new information as irrelevant. In any case, we are active creators of our own knowledge. To do this, we must ask questions, explore, and assess what we know.

Ways to Evaluate Educational Apps | Tony Vincent

Ways to Evaluate Educational Apps | Tony Vincent | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

From the website

 

I kept in mind that some apps are used to practice a discrete skill or present information just one time. Others are creative apps that a learner may use again and again, so it's a challenge to craft a rubric that can be used for a wide span of purposes. I tried to make my rubric work for the broadest range of apps, from drill and practice to creative endeavors, while stressing the purpose for using the app.

 

My rubric also emphasizes the ability to customize content or settings and how the app encourages the use of higher order thinking skills. Admittedly, there are good apps that are not customizable and focus on lower order thinking skills. Factor Samurai, for example, is a fantastic game for identifying prime and composite numbers. It would be nice if the app had flexibility to adjust difficultly, but it's still a good app if it is relevant to the learning purpose.

-----

Vincent provides his rubric for download and also a significant number of additional resources devoted to app analysis and evaluation from other individuals and organizations. I really appreciate all the work he put into this. 

 

Thanks Jim for curating this!

Σε άλλη μία περίπτωση που η επιστημονική φαντασία μετατρέπεται σταδιακά σε πραγματικότητα, το βρετανικό Nuffield Council on Bioethics ξεκίνησε ένα debate πάνω στα ηθικά διλήμματα που συνεπάγονται οι νέες τεχνολογίες οι οποίες συνδέονται απευθείας με τον εγκέφαλο και μπορούν να ανοίξουν νέους ορίζοντες, όπως υπεράνθρωπη δύναμη, ανώτερη αντίληψη, συγκέντρωση (και νοητικές διεργασίες γενικότερα) και όπλα που ελέγχονται με το νου.

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Students today have unprecedented access to information. According to educator Karl Fisch, in one week of reading The New York Times, an individual will encounter more information than people in the 18th century would have had access to during the entire course of their lives.

 

It is not surprising that in this atmosphere, students appear to be growing increasingly dogmatic and are less able to engage in civil discourse with others with whom they disagree. Perhaps this is because they cannot accurately explain what people who oppose them actually believe. In truth, they often lack consistency in their own beliefs as well.
