How Does Amazon’s Kindle Fire Compare To The iPad? [Review] | Cult of Android | EdD etc. | Scoop.it

Early reviews of Amazon’s Kindle Fire haven’t been kind, but I like the device. It’s a versatile and enjoyable little media tablet.

It doesn’t pretend to be anything it’s not (a general-purpose tab), and though not as polished as Apple’s products, its a good first try.

White Papers - Enhancing Education - Carnegie Mellon University | EdD etc. | Scoop.it

The purpose of the Teaching With Technology White Papers is to provide Carnegie Mellon faculty and staff access to high-quality, research-based information with regard to a given classroom technology. The papers do not introduce original research findings from technology assessments or evaluations conducted at the Office of Technology for Education or Carnegie Mellon University. Rather, they serve as literature reviews, intended to provide scholarly integration and synthesis of the most sound and comprehensive studies documented at the time of publication.

Where Curation Tools and Curators Fail: Credit Attribution and Verification

Where Curation Tools and Curators Fail: Credit Attribution and Verification | EdD etc. | Scoop.it

WebProNews interviewed Kate Brodock, the Executive Director of Digital and Social Media at Syracuse University about critical elements of successful content curation on the web. 

 

From her replies:

"People or organizations tend to falter in two areas.

 

a) In the verification process

b) when they should be giving proper attribution to the original content creator.

These two areas need special attention.”

 

...proper attribution of the original content creator is very important.

 

There are many ways to do this on various platforms, and there are generally recognized “best practices” that people use.

 

If you neglect the attribution part of the equation, this is when you get into sticky situations (no matter what your expert lawyer has told you).

 

...It pays to take a look at how each platform handles this aspect of curation and make sure you’re dotting your “I”s and crossing your ‘t’s.”

 

Right on the mark. 8/10

Beth Kanter's comment, November 12, 2011 11:33 AM
Goes right to your previous post about good/bad curation. How much is the curator vs the platform? What is the best way to give attribution (a link or a link with name/organization)?

The last bit about how the end reader feels about attribution was interesting as well.


“In your opinion, how much does it matter to the consumer if they’re obtaining information from its original source, as long as that source is credited? Consumers want information, and that means different things to different people. Many consumers are only concerned about the information they receive and being able to process it quickly because they’re reading these sites simply as a way to quickly digest information and move on. Other consumers may want to dig deeper, explore more sources, get to the original source and expand their body of information. And others still may actually NEED to have the original source for verification purposes or if they’re conducting research or writing an article. This depends on what type of consumer you are.”

Beyond Teaching: New Ways for Teachers to Get Paid

It's often suggested that those in the teaching profession don't receive fair financial compensation for all their hard work. New York City educator Dimity Kirwan has come up with a pretty unique solution to that problem: Beyond Teaching, an organization that connects teachers looking for extra work with parents who need qualified tutors and caregivers. Though her site just launched earlier this year, it's already started to help frustrated New York City educators and parents alike.

Assessing Technology Enhanced Projects | Mark Brumley | EdD etc. | Scoop.it

Assessing a technology rich project may seem daunting at first. Many times, these projects are in a format that can’t be printed such as a movies or even a digital bulletin board (see the article 5 Web 2.0 Tools to Create Online Sticky Notes). With a little planning on the front end, you will be able to assess not only the curricular content, but other aspects such as use of technology and creativity.

What Do Wii Remotes Have to Do With Science? Ask Sixth-Graders | MindShift

What Do Wii Remotes Have to Do With Science? Ask Sixth-Graders | MindShift | EdD etc. | Scoop.it

Amidst grim reports this week that California schools are “failing to invest enough time, money and training to teach science well,” and that only one out of 10 elementary school students gets to play with hands-on science experiments, a shining counter-example is happening at the Nueva School in the wealthy San Francisco suburb of Hillsborough.

 

Sixth-grade students are using Wii remote controls to collect scientific data on things like positive and negative acceleration and thinking about conceptual issues like the difference between engineering and science.

 

Led by Stanford researchers, the class is using Wii remote controls (available online for anywhere from $15 to $40) to create things like a rat-trap car, a marble roller-coaster, and balloon-powered vehicle to test different theories.

 

With the rat-trap car, students have created a Wii-strapped vehicle with CDs as wheels, like a skateboard. They’ve already experimented with smaller mousetraps and lighter batteries to see if the cars would go faster, but landed on the rat trap as the best way to measure the information they needed...
