Hi there! FYI - the first tool listed there is the YouTube editor, but YouTube retired the editor a few weeks ago.

Large-scale Study of Genetic Data Shows Humans Still Evolving | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

In a study analyzing the genomes of 210,000 people in the United States and Britain, Columbia researchers find that the genetic variants linked to Alzheimer’s disease and heavy smoking are less frequent in people with longer lifespans, suggesting that natural selection is weeding out these unfavorable variants in both populations.

Slide Effect have just released a new version of the software, and it's worth taking a look at this easy and effective presentation creator.

You build your slides by adding pictures, shapes and text, then customize background and slide transition. 3D text and special apparition effects are new features that help to make your slides really spectacular.

Free trial is available but even a paid version of $39 is not big money if you like the amazing software.

6 Alternatives To Bloom's Taxonomy For Teachers - TeachThought

6 Alternatives To Bloom's Taxonomy For Teachers - TeachThought | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"At the end of the day, teaching is about learning, and learning is about understanding.And as technology evolves to empower more diverse and flexible assessments forms, constantly improving our sense of what understanding looks like–during mobile learning, during project-based learning, and in a flipped classroom–can not only improve learning outcomes, but just might be the secret to providing personalized learning for every learner."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 24, 2013 9:47 PM

There are many taxonomies that one may use in education, and this post from TeachThought provides a look at six alternatives. Read the post to learn more about the following taxonomies:

* TeachThought Simple Taxonomy

* Six Facets of Understanding by Wiggins and McTighe

* Marzano and Kendall's New Taxonomy

* A Taxonomy of Significant Learning by Dr. L. Dee Fink

* Depth of Knowledge by Norman L. Webb

Based on publications from CRESTT that discuss the testing being designed by PARCC and Smarter Balanced (the two consortiums designing tests for Common Core) it is worth checking out the Depth of Knowledge since the tests are based on the four levels in this taxonomy.

There is no average student and one-size-does-not-fit-all. Jaggedness (Alan Watts' wiggly world concept), complexity (even chaos), context, different paths, and breaking from the idea of average are essential to be a teacher and move away from conformity and compliance.

Differences make a difference.

Unlocking the Promise of Digital Assessment

Unlocking the Promise of Digital Assessment | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
For many professors, student assessment is one of the most labor-intensive components of teaching a class. Items must be prepared, rubrics created, and instructions written. The work continues as the tests are scored, papers read, and comments shared. Performing authentic and meaningful student assessment takes time. Consequently, some professors construct relatively few assessments for their courses.

Design Thinking as a Back to School Activity - Louden Clear in Education

Design Thinking as a Back to School Activity - Louden Clear in Education | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
I am a procrastinator–to say the least–so as school was quickly approaching, I began to scramble to put together our first few days. I combed Pinterest, retweeted ideas, organized my Pocket with a BTS category. But still nothing stuck out for me. Thankfully, in mid-July I was part of a grant process that included two days of design thinking. My friends and I loved the process so much, that we thought “Why don’t we start the school year with design thinking?”

So we did.

And it was the best first days I have had in twelve years.  I’m not even exaggerating.

Mohini Lata's curator insight, May 25, 2013 8:15 AM

 

The Pedagogy Wheel is the mobile learning of the ongoing importance of Bloom’s Taxonomy which is fundamental to good teaching and learning. Digital technology learning identifies which tool to be used at different levels of thinking. The pedagogy wheel serves a creative pedagogical use for learning goals which are higher order thinking skills. The action verbs of higher order thinking relates directly to the Draft Australian Curriculum Technologies sub-strand of digital Technologies processes and production skills which states that when using digital technologies students will use a range of digital systems and their components and peripherals. These apps are to serve a creative pedagogical use in mathematical higher order thinking classroom.
