46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences). The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world. So if you want to try to make infographics–or better yet have students make them–where do you start? Ed note: The original list has somehow become corrupted, so we’ve substituted the following list–only 36 tools, but the best of the bunch–visually, pikotchart, easely, etc.
Mitä opettajan lähettämällä Wilma-viestillä saa tehdä Netissä on pöhisty, tällä kertaa opettajien vanhemmille lähettämien viestien viestisalaisuudesta. Mitä niillä vanhempien saamilla viesteillä saa tehdä? Vastaus lukee sivulla 97 Opettajan tekijänoikeusoppaassa (Toikkanen & Oksanen, 2011), josta tässä tiivistelmä.

Tähän kysymykseen ei ole yksinkertaista vastausta, koska asiaan vaikuttaa ainakin viisi eri sääntöä. Kirjesalaisuus kieltää muita kuin vastaanottajaa avaamasta yksityisviestiä. Lisää luettavaa:

10 Excellent Social Bookmarking Tools for Teachers February, 2014 Social bookmarking is a new concept that has seen the light with the emergence of bookmarking services like the ones I cited below.Semantically speaking, ' social bookmarking' is made up of the the term " social " which is related to society and general interactions between people, and the verb " to bookmark " (used here as a gerund ending in ing) which has to do with recording and/or saving content for both later use and quick access.
