Rebuilding Lost Image Placeholders in iBooks Author » Copy / Paste by Peter Pappas | i-raamat | Scoop.it

A great comment from Diana who writes "I found a way around the error of deleting Chapter image placeholders.
If you delete one you can fix it.
File .. NEW….then click on the same template as the one you are working on.
Locate the image placeholder in the NEW template.
Copy the image placeholder from the Newly opened template and paste it into your document.
It works, good as new."

A disruption to current eWhiteBoards Makers... You could be left out of the game sooner than you think, the survival of the fittest at a pace never seen before. Today you are the king of hill (the Alfa Male), tomorrow you are nothing.  

 

Study how Mikel Jordan kept being the best NBA player as he aged, and follow suit…

 

a) Change before they make you change.

b) Be the leader not the follower, adapt your core competences not to theirs but to the environents and train at changing them as the Environment Evolves.

c) Know more of the new incumbents and competitors than they even do of themselves.  

d) Set the pace, study & read the facts, play offense and defense at the same time, remember the best defense is a well planned offense. e) At the end this game (business) is about who scores most, not about of how many possible home runs you made the others forfeit. So you'll have to be offensive, make safe bets, in order to score.

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | i-raamat | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

Special thanks to Feed the Teacher (Giselle Santos) for sharing this diagram originally posted by Dr. Jackie Gerstein.  

 

The one point I really like is the definition of Education 3.0 - planning and implementing education.  The key is being thoroughly infused and reinvented.
