Agree, lots of great information. Recommended.


I want to add one thing, if you're looking to build a website and

  • get all the tools and information to create traffic
  • write excellent content
  • find the best ways to monetize
  • blog directly from the site
  • integrate with the social media and much more, take a look at SBI/Sitesell. Tens of thousands happy members have built sites that end up in the 2-3% top traffic sites in the world. Over 300,000 Facebook supporters. Classes taught in over 30 universities around the world. Check out the CTPM process that makes it all happen: http://ctpm.sitesell.com/welcome23.html

Amir Shamsul's curator insight, March 22, 2013 8:30 AM

Yes I agree to this notion. I'm all for the introduction of iPads into the education system, both junior and senior. One of the small reasons is that it's more convenient than to carry heavy books around all day.

John Purificati's comment, March 31, 2013 9:58 AM
I'm hoping that at some point Apple will make the iPad a little bit more affordable. Hopefully, market pressure from the android world will change their minds.

10 Ways to Teach Innovation | MindShift

10 Ways to Teach Innovation | MindShift | CIST-Program | Scoop.it

"One overriding challenge is now coming to the fore in public consciousness: We need to reinvent just about everything. Whether scientific advances, technology breakthroughs, new political and economic structures, environmental solutions, or an updated code of ethics for 21st century life, everything is in flux—and everything demands innovative, out of the box thinking."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 1, 2013 7:27 PM

What comes to mind when you think of the word innovation? And if we apply innovation in education what are your thoughts? The Common Core informs us that we should be teaching creativity, curiosity, critical thinking, and more. If we look at innovation we meet these criteria. This post provides 10 ideas. Many of the ideas on the post provide links to additional resources.

* Teach concepts, not facts.

* Distinguish concepts from critical information.

* Make skills as important as knowledge.

* Use creativity tools.
