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.
Studying and researching online is becoming an ever more important element of our digital skill set. I spend a lot of time reading online and skimming through numerous articles from journals and blogs, so I'm always keen to find useful tools which can assist me or my students in this and make the process more efficient. One tool which I have just discovered and which I hope will help with this process is Cruxbot .
Added by Terry Heick on 2012-02-29 Pinterest is (apparently) here to stay. The social bookmarking site is seeing exponential growth and is quickly being adopted by users young and old. That includes teachers and students. Did you know there’s an education area on Pinterest?
In case you haven’t heard the news, we’re putting out a special mini-issue early next week. It’ll be available in the Edudemic Magazine iPad app and, best of all, FREE to subscribers! If you’re not (yet) a subscriber, it’ll be just $0.99. The following is an excerpt from just one of the articles in the mini-issue. It’s all about iPads in education, Apple’s role in the future of learning, and much more than that. Want to get the mini-issue free when it comes out?
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. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

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.
