Xtranormal is a great hit with students

Maria Lupandina's curator insight, April 8, 2013 4:11 PM

Занимательная вещь, способная увлечь детей лет 10-13. Сайт переводит вас к приложению для iOS, собственно только в виде приложения всё и работает. Можно создавать короткие анимированные ролики, записывая свой голос или набирая текст. Объем текста ограничен. Говорят персонажи только по-английски. Полезно будет для напоминания о домашней работе, о различных кратких правилах или исключениях. Ученики могут использовать это приложение на уроках или дома, создавая свои мини-ролики. А им это, безусловно, понравится!

 

Только английский язык.

What's Behind The 'Fairy Circles' That Dot West Africa? from In the Headlines

What's Behind The 'Fairy Circles' That Dot West Africa? from In the Headlines | chris EOI | Scoop.it
Strange circles of bare soil appear in grassland; they're commonly called 'fairy circles.' These naturally occurring shapes last for decades, until the grass eventually takes over and the circles fade.

The problem with high-tech ‘personalized’ learning tools

The problem with high-tech ‘personalized’ learning tools | chris EOI | Scoop.it

I couldn’t help feeling a bit disturbed at SXSWedu last week, hearing tech vendors and venture capitalists use the term “personalized learning” as though it was 1) new (what, exactly, do these people think has been going on in human brains for millennia??) and 2) a ground-breaking thing that could only be enabled through their proprietary technology.

I have to say I agree with so much of this. I really like this quote "True personalized learning comes from people knowing each other; man-made interventions can facilitate, but not fully replace, the cognitive or emotional value of meaningful in-person interaction."

 

I think we need to concentrate more on connecting people to each other to learn, not connecting them to materials.

Lydia Gracia's curator insight, March 25, 2013 5:09 AM

Thanks for this post! I think we have to think about learning DEpersonalisation... it occurs just now!

The Cranberries: Tiny Desk Concert : NPR

The Cranberries: Tiny Desk Concert : NPR | chris EOI | Scoop.it
After a long hiatus, the best-selling Irish pop-rock band is about to return with a new album called Roses. But if this performance at the NPR Music offices is any indication, the group isn't afraid to dip into its arsenal of early hits.

Getting Real About Educational Technology

Getting Real About Educational Technology | chris EOI | Scoop.it

Technology in the classroom is here to stay. Consequently, it is time for educators to begin to have more sophisticated conversations about best practices and to explore the inherent challenges.

I agree with the overall message here, though it's not a new one, but the argument is a bit unsophisticated.

Good reflection on the need for a faster pace... the gap is still there, let's bridge it!

Carmenne Kalyaniwala-Thapliyal's curator insight, March 26, 2013 6:24 AM

It isn't always easy to bridge the gap. Very often, the age of teachers and the cultural and educational baggage that teachers carry don't always permit easy implementation of new ideas. But yes, that can no longer be an excuse...

Lebanon just got 40 feet of snow in 5 days. That officially qualifies as a lot of snow.
