Lecture Search

FindLectures.com is a curated search engine for quality online lectures, interviews, documentaries, and historically significant speeches.

The video list can be navigated with a deep topic taxonomy, which allows the discovery of interesting niche topics.

Videos are ranked using over a dozen quality measures, so that you can spend time learning, not looking.

Ranking and inclusion are affected by topic variety and novelty, length, audio quality, and speaker presentation style.

Other factors include the speaker having a unique background and material being the appropriate difficulty level for being a standalone content aimed at an educated audience.

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator | Religious Education and Technology | Scoop.it
The educator becomes a connected educator and through sharing, is an active participant and contributor to the connected educator movement.

Being a connected educator means connecting with other teachers to exchange ideas, improve your teaching practice, and in turn, make a change in education. It is only through being connected that we can collaborate and help to foster learning for the 21st century and beyond. (Being a Connected Educator)

The gap between what is and what could be in education is larger than it ever has  been.  I believe this is largely due to technology and the ability to establish global connections because of social media. Educators are more connected and more aware about education trends than any time in the history of public education.

Imagine how education could be transformed if all educators use their own personal, often passion-driven voices. The bottom line is that if any individual educator believes there are flaws in the education, that it can be done better, then s/he has the responsibility to say something. I reaching the point that I am starting to believe it is a moral imperative for educators to share what they know to be true with other educators; and with administrators, students’ families, community members, politicians . . . the larger global society.

John Zuluaga's curator insight, February 28, 2017 3:48 AM

There are for sure many other characteristics; nevertheless, those ones mentioned are pretty narrow and interesting. "A tech teacher integrates digital skills into every day life" This argument can be supported by the idea that we use technology in order to cover a need. Every day, as human beings and teachers, we face needs that can be overtaken with the use of technology, but also being aware of how to use it wisely. This is how a competent teacher  who knows about tech literacy becomes a trendy and functional teacher without saying that "traditional" education does not work anymore.

Con el Blended Learning  los estudiantes y maestros llegan a experimentar con un método de enseñanza multimodal en la que el aprendizaje digital y virtual se mezcla con el presencial. Sin embargo, una de las ideas erróneas que circulan entre los que son menos entusiastas sobre el uso de este método de aprendizaje en las aulas es que el aprendizaje mixto no es otra cosa que la sustitución de los profesores con la tecnología. La infografía  echa por tierra este mito y cuenta los numerosos beneficios de aprendizaje combinado. Echa un vistazo y comparte con nosotros lo que piensa de él.

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers | Religious Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

 

"While I understand there’s a LOT more to research than just Googling, it’s important to note that this is where nearly all students start their research. Therefore, it’s a critical skill if they’re going to start down the right paths.

 

"Below are 15 lesson plans courtesy of Google designed to make students better online researchers. They’re organized by difficulty and meant to help students (and everyone) become better online searchers."
