These rare color photos of Paris were shot 100 years ago, and they’re amazing

These rare color photos of Paris were shot 100 years ago, and they’re amazing | Languages, Art and Technology Teaching Website Resources Australian Curriculum | Scoop.it

N 1909, French banker Albert Kahn commissioned four photographers to take their Autochrome Lumière cameras around the world and document in color what they saw. One of the cities on the list was Paris, and in 1914, just before the outbreak of WWI, the photographers took their shots. These are the last color images of Paris during the Belle Époque period — a time when leading literary figures and artists, like Picasso and Gertrude Stein, were beginning to lay down roots in the city. And they’re incredible.

Peru's Pitmasters Bury Their Meat In The Earth, Inca-Style

Peru's Pitmasters Bury Their Meat In The Earth, Inca-Style | Languages, Art and Technology Teaching Website Resources Australian Curriculum | Scoop.it
What's the epitome of summer for a lot of Americans? It's communing around a grill, with friends and family, waiting for a slab of meat to cook to juicy perfection.

In Peru, people like to gather around heat and meat, too. Except the heat — and the meat — are buried in the ground. It's called pachamanca, a traditional way of cooking that dates back to the Inca Empire. The pit cooking technique has evolved over time but remains an important part of the Peruvian cuisine and culture, especially in the central Peruvian Andes all year-round for family get-togethers and celebrations.

This article is probably my favorite one that I have read on this site. Its's interesting to see the different cultures and their traditions like this one for example. They have a big Sunday meal that they cooked underground using heated lava rocks to cook the variety of vegetables and meat. 
Peyton Conner's curator insight, March 10, 2016 10:17 AM
Pop culture is taking over the whole world and few folk traditions are still around today. I believe this article shows a great example of how societies are still honoring their heritage and ways of life. Even something as simple as a way of cooking preserves cultures that are being lost. PC
Zavier Lineberger's curator insight, February 20, 9:30 PM
(South America) This article describes a technique of Peruvian cooking showcased at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. I had never heard of pachamanca, the Incan cooking method that involves layers of potatoes, corn, vegetables, and meat steamed in a hole in the ground. The system involves a bottom of hot volcanic rocks, then a layer of vegetables that must be cooked for longer, followed by a layer of 3-4 types of meat. Then vegetables with shorter cooking time goes on top, with another layer of hot rocks in between. Then the hole is covered with flavoring and fabric and cooked for 1-2 hours. This way of cooking has survived through centuries of conquest and war and remains a vibrant part of Peru's culture.

"I enjoy discussing iPad and other edtech resources with my colleague and friend Sylvia Duckworth almost every week through Twitter. Sylvia is a leader in the French teaching community in Canada, and has created an enormous amount of resources for language teachers to use. I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."

How the Star Wars BB-8 Sphero Droid works (spoiler: it's amazing) - Daily Genius

How the Star Wars BB-8 Sphero Droid works (spoiler: it's amazing) - Daily Genius | Languages, Art and Technology Teaching Website Resources Australian Curriculum | Scoop.it

"I’m about to say something totally unbelievable and completely ridiculous: I love Star Wars. There. It’s good to get that bombshell off my chest. I’m a huge fan of the series and eagerly await the upcoming film by J.J. Abrams and the new Disney ownership.

After going through all of the trailers, both foreign and domestic, it occurs to me that there is one thing in particular that is a true standout. Is it the 3-pronged lightsaber? No. Is it the lack of Jar-Jar Binks? Potentially, but not really.

It’s the BB-8 droid that is taking the world by storm. Better still, it’s actually something you can now purchase (if you’re lucky to find one) in real life. How cool is that?"

Una de las gratas novedades de la séptima entrega de la Saga de Star Wars  es el nuevo robot BB-8 que se ha convertido en el juguete más preciado de estas navidades. Sin embargo, más allá de su forma tan singular, la ingeniería que tiene incorporada la hace un objeto sumamente interesante para aprender jugando.

The Best Music Creation Apps for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Languages, Art and Technology Teaching Website Resources Australian Curriculum | Scoop.it

"Here are what believe are some of the best iPad apps we would recommend for music teachers as well as anyone interested in creating music on the go. There is no huge learning curve in using these apps and anyone with the least knowledge of music and notations will be able to come to grips with how these apps work from the first few trials.  Their intuitive interfaces and easy-to-use functionalities make them an ideal fit for classroom integration. Every app comes with detailed illustrations and graphical guides to help you make the best of it. We hope you will find them useful."

"Language learning has to be met with engaging and entertaining lesson objectives that include innovative approaches from the teacher. The iPad can be the perfect tool to employ when trying to achieve this high standard. Combining apps to enhance lingual learning can really bring multi-media MFL magic into the classroom. Smashing all sorts of language apps into the Book Creator app is just one way of doing this! I plan to create a ‘School Talk’ language book that translates key school resources and aspects of day-to-day education into French."
