138 Influences Related To Achievement - Hattie effect size list John Hattie developed a way of ranking various influences in different meta-analyses related to learning and achievement according to their effect sizes. In his ground-breaking study “Visible Learning” he ranked 138 influences that are related to learning outcomes from very positive effects to very negative effects. Hattie found that the average effect size of all the interventions he studied was 0.40. Therefore he decided to judge the success of influences relative to this ‘hinge point’, in order to find an answer to the question “What works best in education?” Hattie studied six areas that contribute to learning: the student, the home, the school, the curricula, the teacher, and teaching and learning approaches.

40 maps that explain the world Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to.

Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources.

Are you tired of delivering the same old lectures on the same subjects year after year? Are you using the same lesson materials over and over and wishing you could make learning in your classroom more interactive? While lectures and lessons can be informative and even “edutaining” when delivered with passion and good materials by knowledgeable experts, sadly many traditional lectures and lessons are boring, and even worse often ineffective. The good news is that the Web is loaded with great free tools that can enable teachers to bring a sense of fun and engagement to their lessons. Of course, you do need devices with Internet access to give these tools a try. Even if you don’t have computers or tablets available in your classroom, the fact that an increasing number of High School and college students have smartphones is making it easier than ever to leverage technology to create engaging, active lessons students enjoy working on.
Map of Life: An interactive look at flora and fauna Map of Life: An interactive look at flora and fauna On May 10, 2012, scientists from Yale University presented “Map of Life”, a virtual large-scale project with crowdsourcing potential.

Furthermore, by entering the English or Latin name of a species in the search function, you can view the distribution of habitat of any given animal or plant.
Chronas May Be The Best New World History Site Of The Year Chronas is a new site that lets you used a time “slider” at the bottom to see how the world looked at pretty much any given date during the past 2000 years. If you click on the countries/regions/empires shown, then it will show you the appropriate Wikipedia entry. It’s still working out its kinks — it wouldn’t let me view it on a mobile device and, even though it says you can view it on browsers other than Chrome – I wouldn’t. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Teaching & Learning About World History, though I’m not quite ready to add it to The “All-Time” Best Social Studies Sites.
