This is pretty nifty. You can export as a Word or PDF. I'd like it better if they also provided an embed code so you could place it into your class website, but you can't have everything!

Michel Santiago del Pino's curator insight, 13 August 2015, 12:41

Poder expresar la opinión y la elección propia es un Derecho negado históricamente a los menores y a todos los colectivos en desigualdad. La capacidad de hacer valer la opinión propia ya ha sido recogida en los Derechos del Niño y ratificada, en el caso español en 2011. La consideración de los menores estudiantes como coparticipes en la construcción de la sociedad ha de empezar en la escuela. Si se comprende en todo su alcance, la Alfabetización Mediática e Informacional aporta las herramientas para que la participación a través de la creación se haga sobre la base de la reflexión crítica, y la toma de decisión aquilatada. Ya sea de forma autónoma o la mucho más enriquecedora deliberación y creación cooperativa. Se sabe como se debe hacer, ahora lo importante es que se entienda que quererlo hacer es el mejor de los caminos.

Jackie rocks! great infographic

David Allen Wizardgold's curator insight, 14 August 2015, 08:07
It is a shame that many teachers are afraid of technology and won't allow it in the classroom. They see it as a challenge to their control of the students and subject matter within the classroom. To a certain extent it is reasonable because the technology can be used for things other than learning in the classroom. The teachers have a responsibility to get as many of the students to have learned the curriculum for the day and it can't be done if the students are stuck in Facebook.The next thing will be to change the examination system to support the use of new technology rather than requiring students hit the paper with those old-fashioned pens.I'd like to think that there is a way technology can be used as it should be within the classroom. If the students are allowed to make full use of 21st-century technology then maybe the teachers will be able to teach for the next century instead of being stuck in the last one.

Calling All Makers! Look What You Can Build, Watch, Share & More With PBS Design Squad Nation

Calling All Makers! Look What You Can Build, Watch, Share & More With PBS Design Squad Nation | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) | Scoop.it

"Our young people are super lucky to be involved in the Maker movement that is being embraced by schools and communities around the world.  It has brought innovation, creativity, tinkering, exploring and so much more into their lives and throughout education.

These spaces for our makers aren't just physical spaces.  They can also be found online and through wonderful apps being developed to bring making to our students no matter where they are. 

I have a new favorite place for just this!  It is called Design Squad Nation from our friends at PBS. It is filled with places for our makers to Play, Build, Watch, Share, and more!  I love how children can personalize their experience on this website by exploring all of the different places in a variety of topics such as Outdoors, Sports, Friendly, Art, Food, Animals and Heros."

I've always had a hankering for the ibrand rather than the android and that may rest solely on the fact that I spend most of my time on the apple products. But given the continual updates on the iOS devices I see no reason to change. The more the tools in the kit are refined for instinctive use the easier it is to have just the one set of tools.
