ICTs in Education for People with Disabilities - Review of Innovative Practice

ICTs in Education for People with Disabilities - Review of Innovative Practice | Shakespeare | Scoop.it

In 2010, the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education (UNESCO IITE) and the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education agreed to collaborate on a joint project to develop a Review of Innovative Practice – a report presenting concrete examples of practice of the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) with people with disabilities in different educational contexts and settings. In particular, the Review was targeted at considering examples of practice that can be considered to be ‘innovative’ within the specific educational setting and wider societal context they were situated within.

Young 'prefer to read on screen' | Shakespeare | Scoop.it

The National Literary Trust studied almost 35,000 eight- to 16-year-olds.

Its findings suggest a picture of young people who are now immersed in a screen-based culture.

As well as social networking and browsing websites, the study indicates almost a third of youngsters read fiction on online devices.

Carl Thompson's insight:

Possibly the best role ever written for a woman, although in Shakespears' era it was illegal for women to appear on the stage, so female roles were played by boys.

What do you believe is the main message (as a morality tale) in Macbeth?

Do you believe that Lady Macbeth was justified in what she did? If so, explain why.

Google teams up with the RSC to create Shakespeare for the internet age - Telegraph

Google teams up with the RSC to create Shakespeare for the internet age - Telegraph | Shakespeare | Scoop.it
The Royal Shakespeare Company and Google will present a new version of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Carl Thompson's insight:

The work of William Shakespeare is, in my opinion, the heigh of achievement in the English language. To appreciate Shakespeare properly one needs to become familiar with 16th Century English, which is something with which many students struggle. Reading and understanding the work of The Bard (as Shakespeare is called often) can lead people to a deeper epiphany, which is that while the technology that we use may change, the nature of man remains the same. Set Shakespeare's plays in any era with appropriate costuming and they still work. My epiphany came in 1979 when I saw a production of Julius Caesar at the La Boite Theatre in Brisbane, in which all the characters were in Third Reich costume. The realisation hit me like a brick to the forehead.

iPads in the classroom – A development of a taxonomy for the use of iPads in schools

The investigation shows that almost all objectives, teaching tasks and concepts of thecurriculum can be promoted with the aid of tablet computers. Nevertheless, a lot ofprerequisites in terms of hardware and software are required for a successful integration of tablets. In addition, there are some drawbacks, such as the lack of teacher training and slower text production.

The value of Scoop.it to a class will be that I will be able to create a library of resources that students can access to increase their knowledge of a particular subject.
