Wikispaces for Designing Common Core Activities - Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad

Wikispaces for Designing Common Core Activities - Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
To truly embrace the Common Core Standards perhaps it is necessary for teachers to put some distance between themselves and scripted curriculum and utilize their own digital literacy skills to become designers.

This Is Your Brain On The Internet

This Is Your Brain On The Internet | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Is the internet and social media influencing your brain? Documentary filmmaker Tiffany Shlain investigates our changing behaviors in the connected world.

How do media and technology impact our brain? According to a "a recent study, Dr. Small observed brain activity in two groups of subjects interacting with a search engine –one that was 'net-savvy' and one that was 'net naïve'. The results showed increased brain activity in the experienced netizens, reflecting Shlain’s hypothesis that our online behaviors stimulate more brain systems."

For more information and to view a video on "our connected world" click through to the article.

Eric Moss's curator insight, June 29, 2015 10:11 AM

When you hear the word "addicted", normally the first thing that comes to mind is drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes, what about the internet? I found it extremely interesting that there is actually a classified disorder in today’s age, Internet Addiction Disorder. What if you go out to dinner, and you are sitting at the table for just to long, have you ever gotten a craving to just go check social media? It appears to me that social media is chemically changing our brains around. An interesting route to go might be quitting the Internet “cold turkey”, if it works for other addictions, why not try it for this. Seeing how the dopamine, and other chemicals are really reacting inside our brain could be beneficial to determining a solution to this up and coming problem. It seems as if our changing society has lead to such problems, maybe these are some of the repercussions we must face with our advancing technological state.

Trigohowilols A–G, Degraded Diterpenoids from the Stems of Trigonostemon howii

Trigohowilols A–G, Degraded Diterpenoids from the Stems of Trigonostemon howii | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Two new degraded diterpenoids, trigohowilols A (1) and B (2), four new heterodimers, trigohowilols C–F (3–6), one new homodimer, trigohowilol G (7), and three known degraded diterpenoids (8–10) were isolated from the methanol extract of the stems of Trigonostemon howii. Compounds 1–7 were evaluated for their cytotoxic activity against five human tumor cell lines by an MTT assay, and trigohowilols E (5) and F (6) exhibited inhibitory activity with IC50 values ranging from 2.33 to 12.57 μM. Moreover, compounds 1–6 showed weak antimicrobial activities (MIC values: 6.25–25 μg/mL) against Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, MRSA 92#, and MRSA 98# using a 2-fold dilution method.

Is PLA (Prior Learning Assessment) coming of age?

Is PLA (Prior Learning Assessment) coming of age? | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Although there is still a great deal of faculty resistance to PLA, in general it is not an easy or ‘soft’ route to earning credit. Done properly, it is not cheap, either, requiring a good deal of time investment from both students preparing their portfolios, and from faculty who assess it. This is one of several reasons why faculty need to be involved in developing and applying standards for PLA. PLA is not a panacea, but it is important that in a world of lifelong learning, there are effective means of accepting appropriate prior learning. All publicly funded post-secondary institutions should have such policies in place.

Afhankelijk van wat je wil, kun je veel - meest Amerikaanse - online programma's vinden die je kunnen helpen bij het maken van podcasts. Van het vinden en opnemen van geluid tot het monteren en distribueren van je podcast.

Bloom Learning NZ's comment, June 4, 2013 7:42 AM
Ok so I got down to business of creating a podcast, and didn't find any on this very helpful. I did a search and then did find this youtube video (using Podomatic) VERY helpful, as it also includes how to easily get your podcasts onto youtube. Have fun!

65% of today's grade school kids will end up at jobs that haven't been invented yet.That statement comes from the U.S. Department of Labor. Are we preparing our students "for a world that doesn't exist yet?"

This infographic explores this idea and compares education today to what it may be in 2025, as well as how offices and jobs may change.
