A Must-Have Online Safety Guide For Students

It is how most students study, communicate and research everyday. Though the web often makes student life more efficient, those digital footprints may put personal information at risk if the right precautions are not taken. The following is a useful (and relatively quick!) Guide to keeping students safe online thanks to our content partners at Bachelors Degree Online . See Also: The Teacher’s Guide To Keeping Students Safe Online The University of Georgia recently reported that personnel records for more than 8,500 current and former student and faculty were hacked in what officials call “a criminal act of computer trespass.” “Universities are, by their nature, open, trusting environments.

The future of MOOCs

Dismissed as prescriptive, or teacher-centric, or unsocial, or something else, it’s like a badge of honour to espouse why you dislike MOOCs. Despite their pedagogical flaws, however, MOOCs provide unprecedented access to quality content for millions of learners. It’s all very well for Apple-owning, organic-buying professionals to cast aspersions, but consider the girl in Pakistan who’s too scared to set foot in a classroom. Consider the teenager in central Australia whose school has only one teacher. Consider the young woman in Indonesia who can’t afford college. Don’t all these people deserve a better education?

Sure, the pedagogy may not be perfect, but the alternative is much worse. MOOC proponent George Siemens distinguishes between two types of MOOC: the xMOOC and the cMOOC. The former is the subject of such disdain. In contrast, the latter leverages the connectedness of the participants. 1. 2. 3. 4. No more lazy professors, no more specious journal articles. 5. What is a MOOC? Making BYOD Work in Schools – Three School Districts That Have Figured it Out. Since I wrote the controversial post, “5 Reasons Why BYOD is a Bad Idea” over the summer, and received such strong push back the concerns I noted, I’ve been looking forward to learning about sharing ways in which schools have addressed some of these potential issues. This week, guest writer Caroline Ross introduces us to several schools that have tackled these challenges.

In an effort to bring 21st century technology into the classroom despite continuous budget cuts, some school administrators have adopted district-wide “Bring your Own Device” (BYOD) initiatives and programs. Like the name suggests, BYOD programs allow students to bring their own tablets, smartphones, and laptops from home into the classroom for educational use. It seems like a lucrative idea, especially for schools that can’t afford to supply each student with a shiny new tablet or e-reader, but that doesn’t mean the concept hasn’t met its fair share of criticism.

My 35 Favorite Free Apps for Teaching

With iPads and tablets showing up in classrooms with greater frequency, trying to figure out which apps to use can leave a teacher’s head spinning. Last year, when my school debuted an iPad lab, I was thrilled, but as it turned out, I barely used it. I shied away from this new technology (which is definitely not like me!)

Over the past year, I have found several great educational apps that I integrate into my teaching on a regular basis.

The Fun Way to Learn Algebra: Hands-On Equations 1 Lite gives even the youngest students visual and kinesthetic ways to understand abstract algebraic equations. The app is intended for children from age 8 onward. No user needs a background in algebra to learn the concepts presented. The app, like the physical version, is also well suited for helping older students who are struggling in traditional algebra classes.

Each of the three lessons of this free app is introduced by a short three- to four-minute video. In the first lesson the student learns that a pawn, or marker, has an unknown weight, or value, and that a number cube has the value shown on the cube. The “scale” does not actually move.

Examples[edit] In Beirut's Central Business District, Rue Weygand, which runs east-west, still follows the ancient Roman decumanus.[4] In Florence, the Decumanus is preserved as the streets Via Strozzi, Via Speziali and Via del Corso in the city's old centre. Although these streets have different names they form a continuous line with a split between the Via Strozzi and Via Speziali by the Palazzo Strozzi. In Roman times, these 3 streets formed the Decumanus of Florentina, the name of the Roman colonia. The Via Roma and the Via Calimala are formed from the ancient Cardo and what was once the Forum in ancient Florence is now the Piazza della Repubblica. References[edit] Jump up ^ William E.
