Seth Dixon's curator insight, October 6, 2016 1:41 PM

With Hurricane Matthew having just hit Haiti (video) and Cuba, it now poised to strike Florida. Many are unsure what the term “category 4” actually means because they are unfamiliar with the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.  This video is a good introduction to what this means to people in the path of the hurricane. As we monitor this (and future) situation, these are my favorite digital globes that display wind speeds and a few other of Earth’s physical systems. What is beautiful and majestic from one scale can be horrific and catastrophic at another:    

 

Tagsphysical, weather and climatedisasters, mapping, visualization.

The Essential Cheat Sheet for Social Media Image Sizes - Rebeka Radice | Teaching Scoops | Scoop.it
Every so often, popular social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus change the format, layout, and style of their networks.

Just when you feel comfortable with the most recent updates, along comes a whole new round.

One area that continues to evolve is social media images. From cover photos to the exact right dimensions for posts, keeping up can feel impossible.

Top Tips for Managing Photos on iPad & iPhones @jonathanwylie

Top Tips for Managing Photos on iPad & iPhones @jonathanwylie | Teaching Scoops | Scoop.it
At first glance, the Photos app on iOS does not look to have changed that much in recent software updates. However, if you dig a little deeper you will soon find a lot of useful shortcuts for managing photos on your iOS device. For this post I am going to give a shout out to Fraser Speirs (@fraserspeirs) and Federico Viticci (@viticci) because of their recent episode on this very topic over on the Canvas podcast. Some of these tips I had known about before, but a couple were brand new to me, so here are the best of the best.

Apps in Action: Exploring Places with iOS Maps - That EdTEch Guy | Teaching Scoops | Scoop.it
Apple’s own Maps app comes preinstalled on iOS devices and is a fantastic tool to use in the classroom. There are many mapping tools available on the AppStore, yet few offer an experience quite like Apple’s own. Plus, since it is preinstalled on iOS, you do not have to ask learners to download the app either in advance or at the time.

Coaching Investigation - Make Writing @AngelaStockman

Coaching Investigation - Make Writing @AngelaStockman | Teaching Scoops | Scoop.it

"Something troublesome occurred as I helped teachers launch a new makerspace last week: The kids froze..."

 

"Here’s what we did instead: We began defining and modeling the moves that successful makers use, beginning with investigation.

We asked: Given this brand new and very different space, all of these cool resources, and a bunch of interesting challenges, where and how do we begin to learn together without waiting for a teacher’s permission or direction?

The poster above captures the best of the conversation that followed. You can grab your own copy on Canva.

We modeled these moves for learners before turning them loose again.

And then, they went bananas.

It was awesome."

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 29, 2016 9:06 AM

We keep chugging along, fussing about the old model but making few significant changes other than rearranging desks in the classroom, tossing some technology at teachers, fretting about flipped and blended classrooms, worrying about integration of SAMR or the current cool thing, and wringing our hands over the digital divide. But mostly it feels like we're churning though occasionally tilting in the right direction.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, January 29, 2016 10:49 AM

Reform suggests that all we do is rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking ship. People from a distance, including the ubiquitous consultants who spend little or no time in real classrooms, rearrange classrooms, silence teachers' voices, and erase teachers from their very performance. Or, that is the impression given. When we combine Derrida's deconstruction and Dewey's reconstruction perhaps we can rethink what transforming classrooms and pedagogy can mean?

Frans Paffen's insight:
This interactive really is a dramatic look at Israel's endangered natural wonder, the Dead Sea, and explores the reasons why it is in danger of dying. Now if you are a wise guy like my students you are asking "How can it die if it is already the Dead Sea?"  Historically, we have undervalued the role of salty lakes in the broader ecosystem and physical landscape.  Humanity has searched for freshwater to fuel our settlements and has considered them 'dead weight' and not 'living waters.'  The Dead Sea isn't alone; hypersaline lakes such as the Aral Sea and the Great Salt Lake have also undergone transformations.

Make & Takes: Let Students Own the Learning | Renovated Learning @DianaLRendina

Make & Takes: Let Students Own the Learning | Renovated Learning @DianaLRendina | Teaching Scoops | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago, I was meeting with a group of girls to plan activities we want to do with our STEMgirls club that we’re starting.  They had tons of great ideas and suggestions:

     * “We want to learn how to sew and make beds for an animal shelter”
     * “We want a workshop on how to solder and make jewelry”     

     * “We should get more arts and crafts supplies for the makerspace”
     * "It would be cool to have a t-shirt alteration challenge.”


As we discussed ideas and I offered up some of my own, I started to notice a theme.  Every time a project or activity was suggested where students would get to either take something they made home or give something they made to someone else, they got really excited and enthusiastic.  And I realized an important truth: students LOVE making projects that they get to take home with them."

Best video editing apps for iPhone and iPad - Cult of Mac

Best video editing apps for iPhone and iPad - Cult of Mac | Teaching Scoops | Scoop.it
Long gone are the days where video editing has to take hours and involve your Mac. Thanks to the iPhone and iPad, I’ve put together some awesome, professional-looking video. Depending on what your needs are, and how much control you want over the process, these are currently the best video editing apps I’ve found for iPhone and iPad.


Before we get into my picks, I’ll preface this by saying that I only considered apps that have universal support for both iPhone and iPad. Some apps, like Splice, can be great choices, but they are only available on one device or the other.

Where video editing is concerned, most people only want to learn one user interface. Otherwise, things can start to get overwhelming. That’s why I looked at the ease of putting together a great-looking, easily shareable video in addition to comparing features of these top apps.

iOS for iPad has dramatically improved multitasking with Spit View dual-pane apps and its counterpart, Slide Over. The Slide Over feature lets you quickly reference, use, and access secondary apps on the iPad without having to enter into full fledged split screen app mode, and without having to switch apps. This feature is great for quickly replying to an email, message, checking Twitter, making a note, or doing quick tasks in another app where you don’t want to lose the primary app focus on an iPad.

6 Minecraft lessons offer a motherlode of learning - ISTE

6 Minecraft lessons offer a motherlode of learning - ISTE | Teaching Scoops | Scoop.it
News that Microsoft is buying MinecraftEdu and beefing up the classroom version of the insanely popular game got us thinking about all the great ways educators use Minecraft to teach everything from math and social studies to team building and cell biology.

"As an educational tool, Minecraft is a wonderful platform for learning," says Pam Simon who runs an after-school program called Fidgets2Widgets that has incorporated Minecraft since 2013. "You have to have mathematical understanding to build sound structures. Architecture and design features allow for innovation. Redstone in the game acts as the electrical circuitry system, so you can run minecarts, light torches, and create pressure plates."

Read these six articles to get ideas for using Minecraft to engage students in deep leaning in your classroom, school or program.

Indeed, what is the difference?  In fact, why is eLearning, upon whatever platform, brain-based?  I submit because it's enjoyable, and also easy, and accessible, and interesting.  The cell phone is a hook whose very "handy"ness adds charm to the learning process, and, thus, engagement.
