Pearltrees makes Web curation a joy with its 'magical' new iPad app Not many tech CEOs would have the guts to describe their products as “magical” and as delivering “pure happiness”, but that’s exactly how Pearltrees‘ Patrice Lamothe describes the startup’s iPad app released today. You know what? He may just be right. Pearltrees is a service that takes a visual approach to Web curation. Everything’s public on Pearltrees, so searching for ‘iPhone’, for example, will bring up all the iPhone-relates pearltrees created by 200,000 users the service has amassed so far. Now the iPad app brings a whole new dimension to both curation and content discovery. As with the browser-based version, all the pearltrees you create are public, meaning that you’re contributing to a huge ‘interest graph’ that Pearltrees is building up behind the scenes. That’s where the discovery element of the app comes in. Scroll your finger slowly to uncover closely related pearls, or scroll quickly to see a wider variety of related content.

Use These Cardiology Category I Codes in Place of ‘T’ Codes in 2016 Keep an eye on Medicare, other payers for reimbursement news. If your cardiology practice has been hoping for a better chance at payment for a couple of currently “experimental” procedures, CPT® has good news. The skinny: The 2016 CPT® manual deletes 0262T (Implantation of catheter-delivered prosthetic pulmonary valve, endovascular approach) and 0311T (Non-invasive calculation and analysis of central arterial pressure waveforms with interpretation and report) and replaces them with a pair of category I codes. Read on for a rundown of the reasons these code changes are such good news. In 2016, report 33477 (Transcatheter pulmonary valve implantation, percutaneous approach, including pre-stenting of the valve delivery site, when performed) instead of 0262T. Benefit: Whenever CPT® moves a code from category III to category I, it’s a big deal in the coding world. Payment for these procedures might still be spotty, especially in 2016.

* Pearltrees: Una herramienta para organizar, compartir, encontrar y visualizar información Herramientas que nos faciliten el trabajo hay millones en la red, pero de vez en cuando se encuentran algunas que reúnen las cualidades que buscamos. Este es el caso de Pearltress un servicio gratuito que permite organizar la información que resulta de nuestra exploración en la red y a la vez funciona como marcador social, lo que la diferencia de otras herramientas de este tipo, es que utiliza la metáfora de una árbol de perlas para facilitar la categorización de los temas, los que a su vez se pueden subdividir mediante ramas. De este modo, se obtiene una visualización de nuestra información en una suerte de mapa conceptual muy didáctico. Pearltress se suma ahora a mis herramientas favoritas para curación de contenidos, pero puede ser de gran utilidad en otras áreas como las educativas donde se puede usar para hacer mapas conceptuales multimedia ya que cada perla puede contener un URL, una foto o una nota.

Meditation: What It Is... and Isn't - Sharon Salzberg When I first returned in 1974 from studying in India, I’d commonly find myself at a party or social situation where someone would ask me, “What do you do.” When I replied, “I teach meditation,” I’d more often than not hear them say “Oh,” as they sidled away. The implication of their reaction was very clear; “That’s weird!” Nowadays, largely because of scientific research into meditation’s affect on the brain and immune system, and the pioneering efforts of clinicians to study the effects of meditation on all areas of life where the quality of our attention makes a difference, (such as depression, anxiety, addiction, healing,) the most common response I hear when I say, “I teach meditation,” is “I’m so stressed out, I could really use you.” A more disconcerting, and fairly common response is, “I tried meditation once. This classic meditation approach is designed to deepen the force of concentration. If you wish to explore meditation, this is a way you can begin: You can sit comfortably.

Pearltrees - a collaborative web curation tool Pearltrees (iPad app, myös: PC ja Mac) Entäpä jos nettisivut olisivat pieniä pallukoita, joita voisit ryhmitellä mielin määrin? Voisit selata jokaista ryhmää erikseen tai siirtyä haluamallesi sivulle yhdellä painalluksella. Tieto olisi kaikille avointa ja sitä voitaisiin jäsennellä myös yhdessä. Pearltrees tekee tämän mahdolliseksi. Mielestäni Pearltrees on erinomainen ohjelma mm. web curation -toimintaan helpon käyttöliittymänsä ansiosta. P.S. 6 reasons to use Pearltrees Pearltrees is the first and largest social curation community on the Internet. It’s a place to organize, discover and share all the cool content you find online. However, beyond this basic definition, a question remains: why would I want to use Pearltrees? Well, what I want to share with you are six major use cases (or reasons) we’ve identified as being most popular across our entire community of web curators. In addition, I’ll also share with you a couple of interesting ways in which I have put Pearltrees to use for myself. Hopefully, you’ll not only get value in learning how the community uses Pearltrees, but also be inspired to find even more clever and creative ways to use our software yourself. 3. The problem is that aside from searching your personal twitter stream to get back to the cool stuff you tweeted there’s no great way to keep those links at hand. Note: For advanced users you can even hashtag the links you tweet with #PT and the name of a pearltree in your account (e.g.

Q&A: Patrice Lamothe of Pearltrees on personal organisation of the web Believe me when I say you've never used a web application quite like pearltrees. With this application, you can literally map your personal web. Take all of the bookmarks scattered across your web browser, assign them a category and you've got a pearltree. It's a new way of seeing the web. Think of it as Web 2.5. Pearltrees was the darling of the 2009 LeWeb conference, which included a keynote and product demonstration by pearltrees CEO Patrice Lamothe (no relation). I met Patrice while in Paris at the LeWeb conference. Web entrepreneurs create products or applications that they feel fills a hole in the web experience. Pearltrees let you manipulate Web content to create something different: a personal organization of those contents. Why would you do this? Eventually, you want to use other's human organization of the Web to discover new contents you are interested in or just to let yourself be guided through a human curated Web. Pearltrees offers an interesting tool to newsrooms.

Apprentissage par enquête et Pédagogie inversée «C’est le rôle de la prospective que de ne pas minimiser les tensions et les dangers futursau nom d’un optimisme de convention. Mais l’anticipation se veut aussi une incitation à l’action. En cela, elle ne saurait non plus céder au pessimisme.»Vers les sociétés du savoir, Rapport mondial de l’UNESCO, 2005 Dernièrement, une personne dans mon entourage professionnel m’a fait grandement réfléchir à propos de la grande importance que l’on accorde en éducation au spécialiste, à l’expert à qui on accorde le monopole du savoir. Qu’on ne se méprenne pas! C’est ici que la notion de partage d’expertise et de réelle interactivité prend toute son importance.

AConstruire ses savoirs, ce n’est pas synonyme de recevoir LE savoir Dans le milieu de l’éducation, il est beaucoup question présentement de pédagogie inversée (Flipped Classroom). Source Wikipedia
