Urban Observatory

Urban Observatory provides a visual interactive way to compare cities data virtually.  This gives themes or points of comparision to see urbanization across the globe.  Cities may volunteer to provide their information to be included in the Urban Observatory.

Linda Dougherty's insight:

This site will give teachers a way to introduce students to a global understanding of how we live.  Urban Observatory will be a program to mark and look forward to its growth as more data is entered.

"......sample essential questions that could be used for research reports that are Common Core aligned, using Vokis, Xtranormal, Crazytalk, or other avatar generator tools.   For each question, notice the synthesis of "facts" required to answer the question.  If your teachers are crafting research to "fetch facts"  and not do anything with those facts, they are not Common Core aligned.   Higher level thought is developed by requiring kids to think, conclude and create something with their "facts." from Paige Jaeger

Linda Dougherty's insight:

Great combination of avatar apps like Voki and essential questions for "research projects"  Perfect share with those teachers who shudder at the thought of a written research assignment for their content areas.

7 Tips to Beautiful PowerPoint by @itseugenec

Short talk about presentations given at Startup Dynamo, a workshop held by Startup@Singapore NUS using the Learn Startup Methodology. My segment was on Present

Via Baiba Svenca, PuertoTICs, CERT, Alex Grech
Linda Dougherty's insight:

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Alex Grech's curator insight, October 9, 2013 4:18 PM

It's the first time I've taught undergraduates.  I've found myself stripping slides to the core message and trying to find visuals that can communicate that message quickly, simply and yet - resonate.  There is nothing as tough as trying to unclutter the mind and focus on what really needs to be said - as opposed to 'making a point' or simply 'showing off'.  This presentation is about the art of visuals, clear design, and keeping it 'stupidly simple'.

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, July 31, 2013 8:41 PM

Mobile and collaborative software is coming online to meet the needs of today's workforce.  Translating over to education means schools have to prepare their students for this "new workplace." Can we say "common core"?  Students will need to be media literate. The following quote just points toward the future:

 

“Writing and editing has always been somewhat collaborative, but things are moving much faster now,” said Mathias Crawford, a researcher in human-computer interactions at Stanford University. “We are moving from persuasion based on rhetoric to persuasion based on tables and videos inserted into narrative text.”
