About the Book Within the rapidly expanding field of educational technology, learners and educators must confront a seemingly overwhelming selection of tools designed to deliver and facilitate both online and blended learning.

Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media

Many of these tools assume that learning is configured and delivered in closed contexts, through learning management systems (LMS). However, while traditional "classroom" learning is by no means obsolete, networked learning is in the ascendant. A foundational method in online and blended education, as well as the most common means of informal and self-directed learning, networked learning is rapidly becoming the dominant mode of teaching as well as learning. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Teacher 's Guide on Creating Personal Learning Networks.

As social media become more and more predominant as platforms of connection and collaboration, the need for creating and maintaining a PLN ( Personal/Professional Learning Network ) becomes more pressing.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Teacher 's Guide on Creating Personal Learning Networks

As teachers and educators we are expected to be on top of the latest trends that can inform and enhance our classroom teaching as well as our professional growth.We are also expected to know the web tools that our students use and the new ones we can use with them in the future; but this is not always possible and because not all of our time constraints it becomes difficult to keep up the the new releases . It is at times like these that you can call upon your PLN. Creating your PLN is easier than you might even thought. Most of you are already familiar with some social media platforms such as Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Diigo, LinkedIn, but do you really know how to use them to create a personal learning network ? الصفحة الرئيسية.

Principle I. Provide Multiple Means of Representation

Learners differ in the ways that they perceive and comprehend information that is presented to them. For example, those with sensory disabilities (e.g., blindness or deafness); learning disabilities (e.g., dyslexia); language or cultural differences, and so forth may all require different ways of approaching content. Others may simply grasp information quicker or more efficiently through visual or auditory means rather than printed text.

Also learning, and transfer of learning, occurs when multiple representations are used, because they allow students to make connections within, as well as between, concepts. In short, there is not one means of representation that will be optimal for all learners; providing options for representation is essential.

Patrick’s Day activites for kids are lots of fun! St Patricks Day activities for kids :: Leprechaun’s play dough! The Story of Claudette Colvin: Students as Historians. Thinking back on my own personal history as a student, I have remarkably few memories of impactful learning happening inside a classroom. I remember social situations (both good and bad), I remember moments of personal connection with teachers, and I poignantly remember the small number of real-world, hands-on experiences facilitated by teachers. Deep, impactful learning is learning by doing, learning by experiencing, and learning by discovering. When learning is built around these beliefs, classes can be structured so that creation and discovery happen both inside and outside of the classroom walls.

With this in mind, I structure the study of history around the concept of students working as historians. Busy Box activities. What is a BUSY BOX? A busy box is a box or bag containing pre made activities that children can do on their own or with an adult. They usually have an activity that focuses on a skill, these busy boxes are great for developing fine motor skills. The more fine motor activities you do with your child, the more strength they will develop in their fingers. The more strength a child has in their fingers the more control they have when holding a pencil.....so all these fine motor skills are essentially per-writting activities.

Learning and teaching. How to assess your group work skills. All employers are keen to recruit graduates who are able to cooperate, solve problems and work in teams. As less hierarchical organisations have emerged with project teams, self-managed work teams and management teams, so the requirements to 'Get on well with people', and to 'Work with and through others' become increasingly important. Teamwork involves working confidently within a group, contributing your own ideas effectively, taking a share of the responsibility, being assertive - rather than passive or aggressive, accepting and learning from constructive criticism and giving positive, constructive feedback to others.

Exercise on teamworking skills. The questionnaire which follows should help you to analyse the workings of a group and should help you to reach some tentative conclusions about your role in a team. For this exercise you will need to think of teams of which you are or were a part. Psychometric Testing - Career Development From MindTools.

Create some fun, engaging discovery bottle toys for babies and toddlers by using recycled and everyday materials from around the house! These are cheap to make, long lasting and can easily be adapted to create exciting and intriguing sensory play experiences for little ones. It has been a LONG time since I first made a discovery bottle for Pop, when she was just 8 months old! Now that Bean is sitting up and dragging herself around on her tummy, she is excited to explore everything from her new vantage point and test out what every object can do! She has been enjoying a homemade treasure basket (much like this one that we made in the past) and I decided to get the older girls to help me create some new discovery bottles to present her with for sensory play and exploration! We found some small, empty water bottles and dried them inside.

These are the different discovery bottle contents: (left to right, top to bottom)1. Baby Sensory Play: Discovery Bottles. Critical Thinking Development: A Stage Theory. With Implications for Instruction Linda Elder with Richard Paul Though most teachers aspire to make critical thinking a primary objective of their instruction, most also do not realize that, to develop as thinkers, students must pass through stages of development in critical thinking. That is, most teachers are unaware of the levels of intellectual development that people go through as they improve as thinkers.

We believe that significant gains in the intellectual quality of student work will not be achieved except to the degree that teachers recognize that skilled critical thinking develops, only when properly cultivated, and only through predictable stages. In this paper we shall set out a stage theory based on the nearly twenty years of research of the Center for Critical Thinking and explain some of the theory’s implications for instruction.

Assessing Your Parenting Style. Each of us has our own parenting style that is unique to our particular personality characteristics and philosophies on how children should be raised. Generally, these styles encompass some basic ideas on discipline, relationship building, and expectations.

Often our parenting styles are greatly influenced by those we experienced at the hands of our own parents when we were children. We are likely to incorporate into our own style some aspects of our parents' styles. For example, most of us have had the experience of finding ourselves repeating key phrases our parents used, or maybe employing a disciplinary technique that is most familiar to us. At the same time, we might develop a parenting style that seems to be the opposite of those of our parents', especially if we feel there was something objectionable or ineffective in their style.

That said, let's examine three basic parenting styles and see how they stack up in moving us toward our goal. Dr. Bavolek PowerPoint Presentations. Special Education.
