Digital Research for Today's Learners. Edtech Tips. “Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.” ~ Bill Gates I have been integrating technology with students since 1997.

I remember some of the first technologies I used with students were a TV/VCR, cassette recorders, cameras, polaroids, large video cameras, large desktop computers, microscopes, telescopes, the Internet, a transparency projector, and a video projector. Now I use iPads, mobile phones, iPods, digital cameras, and still the Internet. This presentation provides many tips and tools. Click on any of the boxes in this PearlTree of bookmarks to explore!

Challenge: iPad Research in Schools. Last updated on 2/5/2014 Print this page1 The Technology Enhanced Learning Research group, led by Kevin Burden (Principal Investigator) based in the Faculty of Education, has completed the first national evaluation to investigate the use and impact of tablet technologies (in this case the iPad), across schools and homes in Scotland. The study was based in eight schools and six local authorities across Scotland where iPad devices were being piloted to investigate a range of issues associated with the deployment of personal mobile devices as tools for teaching and learning.

This follows the announcement and launch in May 2012 by the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning in Scotland (Mr. Michael Russell) of a series of pilots6 to assess the issues associated with personal ownership of technologies for learning. Findings and further details The study focused on four principal themes related to the use of mobile devices as personal tools for teaching and learning. Digital Collections and Aggregations | DH Curation. Libraries, museums, and archives have been producing digital collections for decades, providing scholars with broad access to countless special collections.

Researchers engaged in digital scholarship have also created many digital collections tailored to the interests of their particular research communities. Both kinds of collections are curated, in that they have been carefully selected and assembled for a specific purpose or audience. In the networked information environment, curated collections will become increasingly important as organizational units for the scattered and diverse mass of available digital information and for providing coherent contexts for meaningful engagement with that information. Aggregations, or collections of collections, are essential backbone resources in the evolving e-research platform that also need to be curated if they are to truly support and enhance discovery and innovation across the disciplines.

Curation Guide. Depending on your point of view, content on the internet can be a vast collection of treasures, a cesspool swimming in filth, or a big pile of gold specks mixed in with an even bigger pile of dirt. My guess is that most people lean towards the last one, giving rise to content curation, the process of finding the gold among the dirt, as a very popular online activity. At its most basic, content curation is the process of finding, organizing, and presenting content from the flood of information and media that inundate the web by the second.

Similar to museum curators, content curators sift through a seemingly never-ending amount of digital objects to unearth individual items worthy of being showcased for a specific audience. Once the selection is finished, the curator presents those assembled elements under a cohesive theme, just like museum curators do for specific exhibitions. It helps to think of a content curator as someone who’s editing a print magazine. Social Media Curation Tools.

It's often said that data is the new world currency, and the web is the exchange bureau through which it's traded. As consumers, we're positively swimming in data; it's everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports. As a result, for the designer it's becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams. Get Adobe Creative Cloud One of the best ways to get your message across is to use a visualization to quickly draw attention to the key messages, and by presenting data visually it's also possible to uncover surprising patterns and observations that wouldn't be apparent from looking at stats alone.

And nowadays, there's plenty of free graphic design software to help you do just that. As author, data journalist and information designer David McCandless said in his TED talk: "By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes, a sort of information map.

Posted by Shelly Terrell on Friday, March 29th 2013 Part of the Mobile Learning Series! “You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can’t get them across, your ideas won’t get you anywhere.” – Lee Iacocca quotes Brainstorming is an important process that helps improve writing, organizes group ideas, inspires discussion, and provides a roadmap for projects. When brainstorming is combined with sketching, drawing, and thinking on graphic organizers, it helps learners to organize their thoughts for better flow and cohesion. Moreover, learners can make connections to previous knowledge and expand on what they already know. This means the brain will process the new information into long-term memory. Our learners can utilize free mobile apps to brainstorm on the go whenever they feel inspired.

NIST drafts guide for hypervisor security By GCN StaffOct 21, 2014 The National Institute of Standards and Technology released a draft of SP-800-125 A, Security Recommendations for Hypervisor Deployment, for public comment. Because of widespread growth in server virtualization for hosting enterprise applications and providing cloud services, recommendations for secure deployment of hypervisor platforms are needed, the standards agency said.

Since the January 2011 publication of NIST’s SP 800-125, Guide to Security for Full Virtualization Technologies, both the feature set of hypervisors as well as tools for configuring the virtualized infrastructure spawned by the hypervisor have seen considerable increase. The NIST guidance examines the security implications of hypervisor platform choices and provides security recommendations for deployments in an enterprise.

The security recommendations on baseline functions refer to configuration choices that ensure the secure execution of tasks. Révélations de « Cash Investigation » sur l’agriculture qui tue. LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Par Martine Valo Magazine sur France 2 à 20 h 45 Les pesticides, nous en mangeons, nous en buvons et nous en respirons. Ils font la fortune de quelques géants de l’agrochimie – six, exactement – et ont des conséquences graves sur la santé publique. Le postulat de départ de l’équipe de « Cash investigation », sur France 2, est remarquablement illustré par ce documentaire percutant.

Leur démonstration a des chances de secouer le public, encore loin de mesurer l’ampleur du problème. D’autant que les journalistes ont choisi de concentrer leur enquête sur les victimes les plus vulnérables des épandages incontrôlés dans les champs, les vergers et les vignes : les enfants, et plus encore les fœtus exposés dans le ventre de leur mère.

Tumeurs cérébrales, cancers, autisme, malformations congénitales, retards de développement : le nombre de cas augmente à grande vitesse. On ne peut plus dire que l’on ignore le danger.

Dec 2 2011 3:12AM GMT Integration – Standard Best Practices There are multiple options available for integrating multiple systems not designed to work together. The major classifications are Data / Functional / Service Integration with choices on Push vs. Pull, Inbound / Outbound, Synchronous vs. Asynchronous, Online vs. Each form of integration has its own advantages and disadvantages – and there is no silver bullet. While choosing the integration approach, the following are the standard best practices to be considered: Be as non-invasive as possible – try to keep the changes to the existing system to a minimum.

Isolate applications so that changes to one application’s internal structures or business logic do not affect other applications. When making updates to another application’s data, make use of that application’s business logic that performs validations and data integrity checks (i.e., at the minimum, use Functional Integration to integrate systems at the logical business layer).

Taiko Drumming in North America. A review of Drumming Asian America: Performing Race, Gender, and Sexuality in North American Taiko, by Angela Kristine Ahlgren. Drumming Asian America: Performing Race, Gender, and Sexuality in North American Taiko is an astute exploration of the interrelated discursive practices informing the performance and historical narrative of North American taiko. Particularly as taiko expands beyond Japanese- and Asian-American communities, studies such as Angela Ahlgren’s dissertation are important for their recognition and investigation of the ever-expanding groups interested in the art form. This work combines a deeply ethnographic approach with feminist, queer, and performance studies to present the ways taiko performers are multiply figured (race, sex, history, gender) as well as the diverse spectatorial perspectives of audiences. The writing is organized into an introduction and three chapters. Orientalist imagery plagues perhaps every North American taiko ensemble.

Paul J. Sources. Korean Percussion Music & Dance in USA. A review of Diasporic P’ungmul in the United States: A Journey between Korea and the United States, by Soojin Kim. Soojin Kim’s dissertation explores the genre of p’ungmul percussion music and dance as it has been transmitted from South Korea to the United States in the late twentieth century. Based on extensive multi-sited research in Los Angeles and New York, this ethnomusicological study is a story of both continuity and change.

In the introductory chapter, the author lays down the theoretical, contextual, and methodological groundwork for the dissertation. Building from some of the most influential works that shape contemporary diaspora and transnational music studies, Kim sets the stage for an exploration of the Korean diaspora in the United States. The performance of p’ungmul by Korean diasporic communities and groups offers a snapshot of a musical genre that was initially carried overseas by Korean emigrants to the United States.
