Firefox 4 en préversion - Les news de Mozilla permet de télécharger une préversion de son navigateur Firefox Version 4. Au niveau de son interface: - des onglets qui s'affichent désormais tout en haut de la fenêtre. - un bouton nommé "Minefield" sur la gauche qui donne accès à toutes les options. - sur la droite une icône donne elle, accès aux favoris. Tout est customizable selon vos goûts. Cette nouvelle version intégrera une meilleure prise en charge d'HTML5, un nouveau gestionnaire d'extensions, ainsi qu'un nouveau gestionnaire de comptes qui devrait permettre de se connecter aux services web (webmail, Facebook, etc...) directement, sans passer par l'interface des pages de connexion d'origine... à suivre. Un petit air de Google Chrome en ce qui concerne les onglets et le bouton pour accéder aux options! Pour ceux qui veulent tenter l'aventure!

The Dos and Don'ts of Tech Integration PD Of all the initiatives a school can begin, integrating technology may require the most professional development. This is partly because of the equipment, hardware, and software involved and partly because of the shift that a teacher must make in his or her teaching style, technique, and planning process in order to effectively use technology in the classroom. Here are some basic "dos" and "don'ts" for anyone doing tech integration professional development. This approach requires those who provide professional development for teachers to listen to their needs, and to know the school and staff they are either visiting or presenting to. This includes situations when staff present to their colleagues. Teachers need support, and they need to see how technology will help them do what they do better and more effectively. For more on building a PD model that supports teacher collaboration and voice, see my posts on the Edcamp model. see more see less – Realtime Search for the Realtime Web A few weeks ago, a small team from @WalmartLabs visited the offices of OneRiot in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. OneRiot has developed some pretty nifty technology that analyzes social media signals from popular networks like Twitter and Facebook to deliver ads that are relevant to consumers’ interests. As our teams debated the finer points of Big Data, Fast Data, and machine learning technologies, it became clear to us that we could find no better colleagues than the guys at OneRiot. As a part of Walmart, we're continuing to work with the intensity of a technology startup. As I have written before, here at @WalmartLabs we’re doing some amazingly interesting and impactful work at the intersection of social, mobile, and retail. It gives me great pleasure to welcome Tobias Peggs and the OneRiot team to @WalmartLabs!

End Technology Training? – Learn. Teach. Engage. Ummm…no. Had to get that out of the way before I could continue. Now let me back up a little… I recently read a post by Mark Brumley over at the HP Learning Exchange. Now, in Mark’s defense, he argues that professional development should focus on “stellar instructional methods” instead. Although he doesn’t quote a source, he says that some studies say that only 3-5 percent of teachers who receive training actually use what they’ve been taught. Now, granted, at Engaging Educators we are in the business of teacher training. Think Long Term–training should be sustained over the course of the school year, not just a one day sort of thing. So before we just eliminate technology training completely, some analysis is required. Post Footer automatically generated by Add Post Footer Plugin for wordpress.
