Private Today, Public Tomorrow (9-10) INVITE students to reflect on the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” ASK: What do you think this saying means? Students should consider that a complex idea can often be illustrated with a single image, and that context plays a role in how an image is interpreted. ARRANGE students in groups of four or five, and distribute the Unintended Consequences of Sharing Student Handout, one for each student. INSTRUCT students to read the “Drunken Pirate” article, either silently or aloud (taking turns).
Follow the Digital Trail (2-3) Warm-up (5 minutes) DEFINE the Key Vocabulary term trail. SHARE with students that you can place information online much like you pin something to a bulletin board.
People love to learn by examining visual representations of data. That’s been proven time and time again by the popularity of both infographics and Pinterest. So what if you could make your own infographics ? What would you make it of? It’s actually easier than you think… even if you have zero design skills whatsoever.
I can count on both hands — and probably even a few toes — the number of surveys I’ve encountered in recent months that attempt to capture how students, and often their parents, feel about the use of technology in schools. Almost across the board, students and parents say they want more access to mobile applications and personalized instruction. Of course, there’s another group of stakeholders who factor prominently into this equation: teachers. All of the smartphones and notebooks and tablets in the world mean very little unless teachers are prepared to use them effectively in class. So, what do teachers want? According to this PBS Learning Media infographic, which we first encountered on the online news site Mashable, teachers are just as eager, if not more, than students to embrace technology as a tool for learning.

One tool which I have just discovered and which I hope will help with this process is Cruxbot.

Pelas Tecnologias da Informacao e Comunicacao :: Ver todos os movimentos :: O Meu Movimento As TIC, são hoje em dia um pilar na formação da nova geração, pelo que será muito importante maximizar esta área de formação. 1º Porque os Nossos jovens merecem um ensino de qualidade e global. 2º Porque neste século o domínio das TIC, ditará o sucesso ou falência da Nação. 3º Porque vivemos em plena revolução informacional e a próxima geração deverá estar preparada para esta. 4º Porque, hoje em dia, usam-se ferramentas de comunicação sem uma formação básica destas e o seu uso acaba descontrolado.

Edudemic often features posts providing a list of top resources for a particular category. Recently, the site gettingsmart.com posted the names of the LAUNCHedu finalists chosen by the SXSWedu® Conference, offering even more resources for the Edudemic staff to consider! On March 7, 2012, they will choose winners after a full day of presentations by the finalists. There are so many sites and programs on the Internet already, but this competition just goes to show that the need for educational resources is still great. Necessity is the mother of invention, they say. The cliche works because it is true.
Are you looking for teaching tools that are actually easy to use and, dare I say it, fun? It’s a perpetual hunt for most teachers and there are simply far too many resources available to go through. After all, you’ve gotta teach at some point, no? Lucky for you, Erik Schreefel over at GoEdOnline spent a month (yes, a MONTH) going through a pantload of web 2.0 tools and narrowed his list of recommendations down to 101 products.
