chrishildrew: Why teachers are turning to
The Raspberry Pi is a tiny little computer that costs about £30. It can do most things that a computer can do, but its size and the fact that it is very cheap makes it ideal for electronics projects. It was originally designed to be for the education market, but pretty quickly a lot of hobbyists have seen its potential and used it for everything from a small-scale web servers to brewery controllers. This guide is intended for teachers to help get the most from the device and find all the relevant resources. There will be plenty more educational resources available as people release them.

Lingro – add to any website for interactive dictionary and word games Lingro – add to any website for interactive dictionary and word games Lingro – http://lingro.com/ - if you want to use a website with pupils but think that pupils would be helped by having an on-hand interactive dictionary then consider using Lingro. Just copy the website address of the website you wish to suggest to your pupils (e.g. www.bbc.co.uk) and paste into the textbox on the Lingro site. Now when you share with your pupils the resulting website address (the BBC website now becomes http://lingro.com/translate/english-english/www.bbc.co.uk) it automatically includes the Lingro toolbar along the top and bottom. So now when your pupils go the website it now becomes more interactive with vocabulary support. A pupil just needs to click on any word they may not fully understand and it highlights that word and a small window appears with definitions of the word, as well as a speaker icon which, when clicked, will provide a real voice recording speaking the word.
The Learning Spy - SOLO taxonomy
Solo Taxonomy and MentorMob. A Match Made in Heaven? The concept was first developed in 1982 (Biggs and Collis) and has since been defined as: ‘Structure of the Observed Learning Outcome, a means of classifying learning outcomes in terms of their complexity, enabling us to assess students’ work in terms of its quality not of how many bits of this and of that they got right.’ John Biggs (2007) The use of this linear structure allows teachers to focus a class and add layers to learning. James Atherton describes SOLO taxonomy as: ‘levels of increasing complexity in a student’s understanding of a subject, through five stages, and it is claimed to be applicable to any subject area.

We are all asked questions. Factual recall of information is something we all do. List, name, describe, identify……. But with a more interesting question can be demonstrated a deeper understanding of the facts, a greater engagement with the task, a demonstration that the learning can be applied in a different context, and the opportunity can be provided for creativity to flourish. Asking the right question, or setting a more imaginative task, at the right time can help learners of all ages engage with their learning. Asking a better question?

Updated 01/2014 As mobile learning becomes more and more prevalent, we must find effective ways to leverage mobile tools in the classroom. As always, the tool must fit the need. Mobile learning can create both the tool and the need. With safe and specific structures, mobile learning tools can harness the excitement of technology with the purpose of effective instruction. Using QR codes for instruction is one example of this. Twelve Ideas for Teaching with QR Codes

Update: Reflection has been renamed Reflector. It is available for Macintosh and for Windows PCs. I am so excited for a new Mac app called Reflection! It shows my iPad's screen live on my computer screen wirelessly! In the past I've used different ways to show iPad's screen on a projector to an audience. I've used a document camera, a Point2View webcam, Apple's VGA adapter with an old-fashioned VGA switch, and an expensive Ephiphan VGA2USB signal grabber.

Three Primary Colors: OK Go and Sesame Street Explain Basic Color Theory in Stop-Motion by Maria Popova In my nearly six years of writing and editing Brain Pickings, I’ve used the word “awesome” as an adjective exactly once. Today, this is about to change — because Three Primary Colors, a new collaboration between OK Go and Sesame Street explaining the basics of color theory in stop-motion, is nothing short of awesome. In fact, it might just be the finest treat for budding designers since Geometry of Circles, the fantastic 1979 Sesame Street animation with original music by Philip Glass. UPDATE: Reader Jesse Jarnow points out the video was conceived and directed by his father, the legendary PBS stop-motion animator Al Jarnow of Celestial Navigations fame, and is his first PBS animation in a quarter century. There’s also a companion OK Go color game for your edutainment.
