20 Historic Black and White Photos Colorized

One of the Sifter’s personal favourites is r/ColorizedHistory. The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers that bring historic photos to life through color. All of them are highly skilled digital artists that use a combination of historical reference material and a natural eye for colour. When we see old photos in black and white, we sometimes forget that life back then was experienced in the same vibrant colours that surround us today. This gallery of talented artists helps us remember that :) Below you will find a collection of some of the highest rated colorized images to date on r/ColorizedHistory. Grishund.

Rethinking Content in the Digital Age

The author of this post, Roger Schank, also penned an article entitled, “No, algebra isn’t necessary — and yes, STEM is overrated” for the Washington Post Answer Sheet. No surprise that Schank has received a wide range of responses to his strong opinions. Personally, I’m grateful he has put them “out there” because it has forced me to really think about how I feel. What we’re talking about here is content. With the huge changes the digital age has brought, I think it is more imperative than ever that we re-think content.

I’ve already made some small changes in my 4th grade classroom. I’ve made the tough decision to stop requiring cursive, and instead have made time for keyboarding instruction/practice. How do we discover our passions? But Mr. While he makes some valid points in his article, I have a few issues with his approach. What happens instead?

But the tide of battle is changing. A report from the front lines. By Kevin Carey It’s three o’clock in the afternoon on Easter, and I’m standing on a wooden deck in the Corona Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, looking out toward Nob Hill. Some of them are the kinds of hackers a college dean could love: folks who have come up with ingenious but polite ways to make campus life work better. But many of the people here are engaged in business pursuits far more revolutionary in their intentions. Last August, Marc Andreessen, the man whose Netscape Web browser ignited the original dot-com boom and who is now one of Silicon Valley’s most influential venture capitalists, wrote a much-discussed op-ed in the Wall Street Journal.

This hype has happened before, of course. Flipped Learning & Spaghetti Sauce. I have recently been reading books by Malcolm Gladwell: Outliers and Tipping Point.

Flipped Learning & Spaghetti Sauce

I ran across a TED talk he did in 2004 talking about Spaghetti sauce. He tells a story of Howard Moskowitz who convinced Spaghetti Sauce maker Prego to make lots of different varieties of spaghetti sauce instead of just one. Prior to Howard Moskowitz, most food manufacturers were looking for the ONE recipe, which people would like. For example: the ONE Pepsi, and the ONE spaghetti sauce. Howard’s contention was that instead of giving people one variety, a better way was to create many different varieties. So what does this have to do with Flipped Learning? One of the key ingredients of a successful flipped learning environment is that it personalizes the learning for EACH individual learner. Each learner is different and we need to honor each student’s learning preferences and needs. To watch Malcolm Gladwell’s TED talk, I have included it below. App Store – Gravitarium2.
