If you’ve been using social media for a while, you’ve probably noticed the explosion of image quotes on platforms like Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook. Inspirational sayings and meaningful quotes about success, life, love etc have the uncanny ability to touch us in just a few words because they express what we all think, feel, hope, fear and desire in life. This is probably also why they tend to go viral. But in today’s fast-paced world, pictures, not just words, are becoming the new way to communicate.

Besides the wisdom and the feel-good factor, I believe there are actually 3 important reasons why every business must add image quotes to their marketing mix. Why You Should Create Image Quotes 1. Quote images are one of the easiest ways to add a visual element to your posts. 2. In other words, if you want to connect with your audience, you should “tell” less and “show” more. 3.

Formation - Le code, une nouvelle langue à maîtriser., installé à Montreuil, propose des cours aussi bien pour les enfants, que de la formation continue ou un enseignement pour les jeunes, avec ou sans le bac HTML, CSS, php, Javascipt, C++, Python, Ruby… les outils numériques de notre environnement quotidien parlent des langages informatiques abscons pour le plus grand nombre d’entre nous.

Apprendre à coder devient un apprentissage élémentaire. «Yes We Code » : c’est la phrase qui défilait sur l’écran des ordinateurs des postulants à la première promotion de l’école 42 de Xavier Niel, ouverte en novembre à Paris pour former des développeurs. Barack Obama ne désapprouverait pas cet emprunt à son slogan… Il a lui même soutenu la campagne « Hour of Code », lancée le 9 décembre aux Etats-Unis. « N’achetez plus de jeux vidéos, créez en un ! Lire, écrire, compter et… coderMais l’ambition de généraliser l’apprentissage du code ne se limite pas à pallier cette pénurie.

Travel the World from Your Classroom: Free iPad Apps for Virtual Field Trips.

Not every school has the resources necessary to take their students on an airplane . . . or spaceship. The iPad can bring the world to your students' fingertips in ways never before possible. Many national parks and museums have apps designed for onsite visitors. These navigational tools are also great for classrooms who can't make the trip. In fact, a variety of free apps can be used as virtual field trips so that children can travel the world from your classroom! National Parks by National Geographic National Parks by National Geographic is full of breathtaking pictures and information on National Parks including Acadia, Mount Rainier, Yellowstone and Zion. Gettysburg For a virtual tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield, the Gettysburg Battle app can be used in classrooms commemorating the 150th anniversary of this Civil War battle.

Getty Museum The Life of Art app designed by the Getty Museum focuses on four items from their collection. NASA Earth Now Timeline - Art Museum Sphere. Teaching strategies. Global education covers complex and controversial issues. This is a selection of teaching and learning approaches that develop knowledge and skills to respond to global issues. Freedom fighter or terrorist? Passionate or one-eyed? Passive resistance or civil uprising? Illegal arrival or asylum seeker? The words used and our interpretation of images and statistics are an insight into our perspective or bias – our view of the world.

Global education aims to assist students to recognise bias in written and visual texts, consider different points of view and make judgements about how bias can lead to discrimination and inequality. Activities to help students understand bias: Younger students might rewrite a well-known story from a different perspective – for example, Little Red Riding Hood rewritten from the perspective of the wolf. Cartoons are a great way to challenge thinking about an issue. Cartoons can be used in the global education classroom to: Activities Tell a story Useful websites. What Are 21st-Century Skills? Learning to collaborate with others and connect through technology are essential skills in a knowledge-based economy.

ATC21S started with a group of more than 250 researchers across 60 institutions worldwide who categorized 21st-century skills internationally into four broad categories: Ways of thinking. Creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and learningWays of working. Communication and collaborationTools for working.

Fifteen years ago, a research group called The Fraunhofer Institute announced a new digital format for compressing movie files.

This wasn’t a terribly momentous invention, but it did have one interesting side effect: Fraunhofer also had to figure out how to compress the soundtrack. The result was the Motion Picture Experts Group Format 1, Audio Layer III, a format you know and love, though only by its acronym, MP3. The recording industry concluded this new audio format would be no threat, because quality mattered most.

Who would listen to an MP3 when they could buy a better-sounding CD at the record store? Then Napster launched, and quickly became the fastest-growing piece of software in history. The industry sued Napster and won, and it collapsed even more suddenly than it had arisen. If Napster had only been about free access, control of legal distribution of music would then have returned the record labels.

Over the last couple of months we have been working on a new partnership idea with the Google Apps For Education Team where we would create a Google Apps for Education Community.

As I travel training teachers how to use Google Apps for Education, the most asked question was ‘What’s next?’ There are a select group of teachers who have the opportunity to be connected in the Google Certified Teacher Community, but apart from that there are no other Google endorsed options available for school staff to come together and share ideas, best practices and have their questions answered. And a whole lot more We are going to host 3 free Google Apps For Education Events. The first event will be specifically for school administrators and I.T leaders.

The second event is open to all education staff. The third event will be held in Auckland at Buckland Beach Intermediate School on the 18th of May. To register for these free Google Apps For Education Community Events go to our REGISTRATION PAGE. Go and Animate with Go!Animate by Joe Ganci. “All in all, I’m kind of loving this product.

I plan on using it quite often. While it does not take the place of full-motion videos, in many instances it does a fine job of replacing the need for such videos at a much lower cost and effort.” Last month, Learning Solutions Magazine published Tips for Using GoAnimate in eLearning, by Gary Lipkowitz, COO of GoAnimate. Now I’m here to give you a proper review of the product. I’ll confess that I misunderstood the product at first glance last year, thinking it was a video editor, so I was a little slow to try out GoAnimate. Videos? Yes, you do make videos with Go! In the product you’ll find most everything you need to quickly create the kinds of movies that we so often need in eLearning scenarios.

Go! When you’re ready to start, you’re offered two choices, as seen in Figure 1. Figure 1: You can start with a template or make a video from scratch Using a video template Figure 2: Some Go!
