How to Protect Students From Fake News | Edudemic

How to Protect Students From Fake News | Edudemic | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
For those raised in the information age, life without the internet is no life at all. It is often a primary focus of a teen’s day (75% of teens are online several times per day) and an important means by which they communicate with the world and take in new information. While information can be found in various sources across the internet, an overwhelming majority of teens and pre-teens tend to gather their information from social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. A 2015 report by the Media Insights Project found that the majority of surveyed Millennials (aged 18-34) cited Facebook as their sole or primary source of key news and other information.

Is our smartphone addiction damaging our children? | Rowan Davies

Is our smartphone addiction damaging our children? | Rowan Davies | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
Astudy published by the journal Child Development has taken a look at how parents’ use of technology affects their children’s behaviour, and has concluded that “technology-based interruptions in parent–child interactions” – a phenomenon known as “technoference”, which I’m fairly sure was a club night in Stockwell in the 1990s – could be associated with a greater incidence of poor behaviour on the part of children.

Almost half (48%) of the parents in the study admitted to three daily incidents of technoference in their interactions with their kids, and the researchers say that these seem to correlate with young children being more prone to whining, sulking, restlessness, frustration and outbursts of temper. (Coincidentally, these are also the behaviours displayed by adults who are confronted with slow wifi.)

Mother's milk customized to sex of the baby

Mother's milk customized to sex of the baby | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
“Mothers may say they don't care whether they have a son or a daughter, but their breast milk says otherwise.”"Mothers are producing different biological recipes for sons and daughters," says Katie Hinde, an evolutionary biologist at Harvard University. Studies in humans, monkeys and other mammals have found a variety of differences in both the content and the quantity of milk produced.One common theme: baby boys often get milk that is richer in fat or protein — and thus energy — while baby girls often get more milk.There are a lot of theories as to why this happens, says Hinde, who presented her findings at the American Association for the Advancement of Science's annual meeting.Rhesus monkeys, for instance, tend to produce more calcium in the milk they feed to daughters who inherit social status from their mothers."It could be adaptive in that it allows mothers to give more milk to daughters which is going to accelerate their develop and allow them to begin reproducing at early ages," says Hinde.Males don't need to reach sexual maturity as quickly as females because the only limit on how often they reproduce is how many females they can win over. "While the food aspects of milk to some extent are replicated in formula, the immunological factors and medicine of milk are not and the hormonal signals are not," she says.Getting a better understanding of how milk is personalized for specific infants will also help hospitals find better matches for breast milk donated to help nourish sick and premature infants in neo natal units, she adds.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
"Recently on westXdesign–via scoopit–we found an interesting graphic about naming 12 principles of collaboration. Collaboration is among the most-often promoted fluencies of 21st century learning (along with creativity and communication). However, there are very few frameworks or models that exist to support the development of better collaboration forms. As it is, in many K-12 learning environments, collaboration is limited to teacher-created grouping, or more scattered project-based learning groups that converge on a single project and thus a single goal. The following principles of collaboration (seemingly created for businesses but clearly applicable to learning) push that idea a bit further–with some important emphases on the individual, including:"

“Yea, but what does it look like?”

This is the question I hear and see most frequently online and at conferences when someone mentions the phrase empower students. 

As someone who just released a book with the title, Empower, I have gone in-depth talking about the differences between compliance (forcing kids to pay attention to our content), engagement (getting kids excited about our content), and empowerment (kids excited to learn on their own).

Bill Ferriter sums up the difference perfectly in this blog post with a visual:

Achieving Impact in Research; a guide for the purposes of gaining research funding and reporting achieved impact for the Research Excellenc Framework (REF) | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
This addition to the "Success in Research" series addresses the importance of understanding and achieving impact for the purposes of gaining research funding and reporting achieved impact for the Research Excellence Framework (REF). The book includes contributions from researchers and researcher developers who feel that impact is ill-defined and poorly understood despite its prevalence in policy documents, websites and institutional activities. This succinct and cohesive text draws on the expert contributors' collective research practice, knowledge and experience. Using a variety of examples, boxed activities and highlighted reflection points, this practical guide covers the following key areas: - The meaning of impact in relation to research - How the Impact Agenda fits with attitudes and ethics that motivate research - The different characterisations of research impact and when impact is apparent - How impact can be planned into proposals, evaluated and evidenced - The skills needed to be an impactful researcher - How impact can be supported through Knowledge Exchange and effective partnerships Table of contents: What is the meaning of impact in relation to research and why does it matter? A view from inside academia Colin Chandler What is the meaning of the Impact Agenda - is it a repackaged or a new entity? Views from inside the Research Councils Sophie Payne-Gifford How does the Impact Agenda fit with attitudes and ethics that motivate research? Jennifer Chubb What are the different characteristics of research impact? Jo Lakey, Geoff Rodgers and Rosa Scoble When might research impact be apparent?
