English to French, Italian, German & Spanish Dictionary SAMR and Bloom's Taxonomy: Assembling the Puzzle For teachers just starting out with educational technology, the task at hand can sometimes seem daunting. Even though tools such as the SAMR model can help, the plethora of choices available can prove paralyzing, frequently resulting in ongoing substitutive uses of the technology that block, rather than enable, more ambitious transformative goals. The approach below is designed to help overcome this barrier, and is inspired in its form by Alexander’s notion of Design Patterns -- a clearly structured solution to a recurring design problem -- which has been applied to education scenarios by Bergin et al. The goal for the teacher is to construct a simple SAMR ladder that is coupled to Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy -- i.e., as the task moves from lower to upper levels of the taxonomy, it also moves from lower to upper levels of SAMR. This coupling of the SAMR model and Bloom’s Taxonomy has several desirable outcomes: Finally, let’s look at an example of this approach in practice. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

How Do People Make Choices Anyway? | by Jamie @ The Doer Co. | Entrepreneur's Handbook This is important to you because customers are misjudging the value they expect to get from your services, and deciding not to choose you because of it! Back to expected value. How do people estimate the value of buying something to them? Expected Value = (Odds of Gain) x (Value of Gain) So if they judge the odds of success with your product to be lower than it is in reality, you can see why they might decide not to purchase your product overall. How do people make errors when predicting probability (including their probability of benefiting from your services)? “Calculating odds would seem to be something rather easy,” says Dan Gilbert “there are six sides to a die, two sides to a coin, 52 cards in a deck. But as it turns out this isn’t how people do odds at all. Sometimes people are asked to estimate the likelihood (odds) of an event happening. For example, maybe your friend has a new startup idea. Availability This judgmental “rule of thumb” is called the availability heuristic.

"House of cards": o som e a fúria de Frank Underwood Knock, knock! Os dois socos fortes, em sequência, na mesa presidencial ribombam o triunfo improvável do ardiloso, pérfido e irresistivelmente carismático Frank Underwood. Estamos nos instantes finais da segunda temporada do seriado House of cards, e o shakespeariano Kevin Spacey consagra-se junto com o personagem que provavelmente definirá sua carreira. Frank Underwood, o Macbeth do século XXI, conseguiu: de líder na Câmara a vice-presidente (primeira temporada); e de vice-presidente a presidente (segunda temporada) – tudo sem passar pelas urnas. Na irrefreável ascensão de Underwood, testemunhamos as engenhosas artimanhas, a implacável destruição dos oponentes – enfim, a exploração minuciosa de toda e qualquer fragilidade humana em nome da desmesurada ambição do homem que nos conduz rumo à Casa Branca. Está em cena a brutal exuberância dos vícios humanos, tal qual somente a política e a guerra podem oferecer-nos. >> Aquele dia em que o Netflix vazou House of Cards - mas tirou do ar

10 Characteristics of Learner Centered Experiences   – KATIE MARTIN Education Reimagined defines the paradigm shift from teacher-centered to learner-centered as shifting how we see learners and their critical role in their own learning now, and throughout their lives. The critical shift is that “Learners are seen and known as wondrous, curious individuals with vast capabilities and limitless potential. This paradigm recognizes that learning is a lifelong pursuit and that our natural excitement and eagerness to discover and learn should be fostered throughout our lives, particularly in our earliest years.” When we focus on learners, connect to their interests, needs, and goals, we can create experiences that ignite curiosity, develop passion, and unleash genius. As I think about some of the most impactful learning experiences in my own life, they align with the same characteristics that I hear from others. In an effort to create more purpose and autonomy in schools, there is an increased focus on personalized learning. Like this: Like Loading...

Writing an email Emails, whether for business or social reasons, are usually written in a more informal style than letters. You should always give your email a Subject, which should summarise its purpose in a few words. The conventions for starting business emails vary, although it is quite common to use first names for both business and personal emails if you know the recipient. It is not necessary to use Dear, although some people prefer to do this. Generally speaking, the content of business emails should be brief and to the point.

200 universities just launched 600 free online courses. Here’s the full list. If you haven’t heard, universities around the world are offering their courses online for free (or at least partially free). These courses are collectively called MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses. In the past six years or so, close to 800 universities have created more than 8,000 of these MOOCs. And I’ve been keeping track of these MOOCs the entire time over at Class Central, ever since they rose to prominence. In the past three months alone, over 200 universities have announced 600 such free online courses. If you have trouble figuring out how to signup for Coursera courses for free, don’t worry — here’s an article on how to do that, too. Many of these are completely self-paced, so you can start taking them at your convenience. Neural Networks and Deep Learning from (taught by Stanford prof.

Why American English is more traditional than British English in many ways Oct. 19, 2017, 9:57 AM 514 Error loading player: No playable sources found Business Insider spoke to Philip Gooden, author and expert on the origins of the English language, about why the variety of English used in the US is different – and more traditional – to the variety of English used in Britain. Read the full transcript of the video below. Philip Gooden: "Americans have taken some British English terms. A couple of examples – “fall” as a word for autumn originated in England and went over to America with the earliest settlers. The very characteristic American “gotten” for the past tense of “get” has died out over here, but it does survive still in a formulation like “forgotten.” So, there are a few terms that actually, either way, you could say the Americans are more traditional because they’re still using them. If enough British English people want to use Americanisms, then they will do. Video filmed by David Ibekwe.
