How to Get High-Quality Student Work in PBL

How to Get High-Quality Student Work in PBL | highTech | Scoop.it

YOP This is a common concern of teachers who are new to project-based learning. Things can appear to be going smoothly -- students have been engaged by the project, they've been learning content and skills, they've been busy and meeting deadlines -- but their thinking is not as in-depth and their final products not as polished as they should be. If this is your experience, it's time to ask yourself some questions:

Great checklist for PBL and has a great link to 8 PBL essentials! 

Ashleigh Sweetman's curator insight, February 20, 2014 11:42 AM

I loved this Edutopia article! It answered many of the questions I have as a future teacher about project-based learning. I am really interested in how to find out whether or not the students are engaged in the project. If they are not engaged, how do teachers alter their projects to make all students engaged?  I feel that project-based learning is extremely beneficial for students inside and outside of the classroom.  This article will be really helpful in my future classroom when I begin to have trouble managing my students' project-based learning.

Node.js vs. PHP

Node.js vs. PHP | highTech | Scoop.it

PHP is not going to disappear soon, but its position is being undermined even further by the nascent Node.js. When the Internet exploded in the 2000′s, PHP was the thing ”all the cool kids” did.

Over the years, PHP and its apps became vulnerable to security threats (e.g., SQL injections), lacked a centralized packaging registry (was Composer inspired by Node Package Manager?), had an inconsistent API and suffered from subpar performance. It’s easy to argue that there are better alternatives to PHP, for example Ruby on Rails and Django, however nothing is as approachable as Node.js.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Node.js, or who have heard of it but can’t quite grasp the concept, I like to say that it is functionally similar to the PHP + Apache or ASP + IIS stacks. Nowadays, it is also gaining momentum.

Many people, whether software engineers or entrepreneurs, are often faced with the decision: “What tech stack should I use?” In this article, I’ll try to compare PHP and Node.js using an apples-to-apples approach, looking at the question from different angles including:

* Syntax

* Context switch

* Modules
* Ecosystem
* Frameworks
* Real-time apps
* Database apps
* Third-party services apps
* Web servers
* Hosting
* Performance

Well curved glass implies that you can shape the glass to the way that you want, to satisfy more design requirements, other than just flat screens

Les pièges pas faciles des références en PHP <?php $a = array(1, 2, 3); foreach ($a as &$v) { } foreach ($a as $v) { } // $a vaut array(1, 2, 2) ici

Que s'est-il passé dans l'exemple ci-dessus ?
C'est en fait assez simple : lorsque le premier foreach utilisant une référence sur les valeurs du tableau termine, en mémoire, $v est une référence sur la dernière case du tableau $a (la boucle foreach ayant terminé l'itération).

Autrement dit: entre les deux foreach, $v est liée à la dernière case du tableau (son index 2) et toute modification future de la variable $v changera la valeur de la dernière case du tableau.


Eh bien, cette modification a lieu ! C'est le deuxième foreach qui itère sur le tableau depuis le début et remplit à chaque itération $v (donc aussi la dernière case du tableau) respectivement des valeurs 1, 2... puis 2.
