Six ways to integrate media literacy in the classroom | eflclassroom | Scoop.it

"While students appear to spend most of their time looking at media, we must resist the temptation to believe they understand what they are viewing and hearing.

Easy, Effective Pumpkin Carving Tricks - Makezine

Easy, Effective Pumpkin Carving Tricks - Makezine | eflclassroom | Scoop.it
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” – for us Halloween lovers, anyway. We love Halloween here at Make: as it is the perfect excuse for getting people excited about making. Even the most self-confessed non-maker is likely to at least do a project or two for Halloween, principal among these being pumpkin carving. While many are content with the classic carve of two slanted eyes and a jagged mouth, there are lots of things you can do to up your pumpkin game and none of them are very far from the most basic carving methods.
