12 Things Successful People Do Differently

12 Things Successful People Do Differently
Email I’ve always been fascinated by people who are consistently successful at what they do; especially those who experience repeated success in many areas of their life throughout their lifetime. In entertainment, I think of Clint Eastwood and Oprah Winfrey. In business, I think of Steve Jobs and Warren Buffett. We all have our own examples of super successful people like these who we admire. Over the years I’ve studied the lives of numerous successful people. 1. Successful people are objective. S.M.A.R.T. goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely. Specific – A general goal would be, “Get in shape.” When you identify S.M.A.R.T. goals that are truly important to you, you become motivated to figure out ways to attain them. 2. Sadly, very few people ever live to become the success story they dream about. They never take action! The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. 3. In his book, The 4-Hour Workweek Just take a quick look around. 4. 5. . 6. 7. 8.

Proyectos Colaborativos por Internet > Proyectos Colaborativos > Fundamentos Realizar Proyectos Colaborativos Escolares exitosos implica planearlos adecuadamente y llevarlos a cabo utilizando las herramientas informáticas y plataformas, apropiadas. Para aumentar las posibilidades de éxito en ambos aspectos, se proponen cinco elementos que deben estar presentes en cualquier proyecto de este tipo: a) Interacción, b) Conexión con el currículo escolar, c) Estrategias que evidencien tanto aprendizajes como colaboración, d) Herramientas informáticas de apoyo y e) Plataforma/herramientas para trabajo colaborativo. Los cuatro primeros elementos (a, b, c, d) se tratan detalladamente en el documento “Elementos Fundamentales de Proyectos Colaborativos”. En este mismo sentido, recomendamos ampliamente consultar y utilizar la herramienta interactiva “Planeador de Proyectos Colaborativos”, alojada en Eduteka. En el cuadro que se presenta a continuación se analizaron (jun-2009) los siguientes sitios que ofrecen plataformas de trabajo colaborativo: E2.1. E2.2. Terra

10 Emerging Education and Instructional Technologies that all Educators Should Know About (2012) Naturally, as author of EmergingEdTech, I’m always keeping an eye out for education and instructional technologies that are emerging from the seemingly endless array of tools and concepts that are out there – which applications and ideas are rising to the fore and best positioned to enhance engagement and impact learning? This year I’ve also been working with constituents at The College of Westchester to develop a Strategic Technology Plan for the next 3 years, so it’s never been more important for me to be aware of those impactful education technologies and concepts that are on the horizon or are already in use and pulling ahead of the pack. Since this listing is more pointedly focused on emerging technologies and looking out over the next few years than the list I published at this time last year, it should not come as a surprise that there are a lot of new entries here (edging out six technologies that remain prevalent and potent, but are more ‘established’ than ’emerging’).

Creating avatars and icons instead of photographs By Susan Ettenheim | High School art/media/library/technology teacher We've found that the whole problem of students posting personal photographic representations is gone when we teach them about making avatars or icons as personal representations. Here is the lesson we use for Youth Voices for building Avators / Icons. You will see that this lesson is in the context of our site, Youth Voices, but it certainly can be used in any context. Building Avatars/Icons Introduce yourself by putting an avatar/icon in your user posts. Essential Questions What is special to you and about you? Gather your thoughts and create an avatar/icon On paper, map and draw what is essential about you.In the center of a piece of paper, draw a large outline of your favorite shape.Around the outside of the shape, write the answers to these questions:What is your favorite color?

Visual & Graphic Design You’ve heard you can’t judge a book by its cover. But the truth is, if a book doesn’t have a good cover, most people won’t even reach for it. The same can be said about elearning. Good visual design compels the learner to go deeper and learn more; and it reassures them the course is valuable and worth their time. The course’s visual design is a powerful tool for setting the tone, communicating key concepts, and engaging your audience. In the posts below, you’ll learn some visual design basics that make for more effective communication. Communicate with Good Visual Design Graphic Design for Your E-Learning Courses Resources to Help You Build Better Graphics

One of the reasons for this increasing popularity is the growing demand of students looking for non-traditional tools that can give them the full experience, without having to sacrifice their full-time job. “Even though the education market has changed and distance learning has become increasingly popular, most institutions find themselves unprepared to face this worldwide phenomenon and lack the expertise to create a platform that makes online courses effective”, says Vitaly Klopot, Managing Director of the award-winning e-learning provider, InterActive , which partners with institutions such as the London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) and Finance Business Training (FBT) to offer a wide range of programs. 1.

Blogs & Wikis as WebQuest Tasks - NECC 2004 Wikis, on the other hand, seem tailor-made for WebQuests based on the Compilation or Recommendation designs. SDSU graduate students compiled a micropedia about Educational Games and Simulations in Fall, 2003 and next Fall's class will add to it. Another compilation example is the Election 2004 WebQuest from Austria in which information about the next U.S. election is collaboratively authored by students. As an example of a Recommendation design, Dan McDowell has written a WebQuest about India and Pakistan which culminates in drafting a peace accord using a wiki. In summary, these two formats have a lot of potential for use within WebQuests.

Finlandia, número 1 en educación en Europa | Revista AZ, Portal de Educación y Cultura en México. El país nórdico lidera el informe PISA con una enseñanza gratuita que pone en primaria a los profesores más preparados. Los niños finlandeses de hoy estarán el día de mañana entre los profesionales más preparados del mundo. No lo predice ninguna bola de cristal, lo auguran datos objetivos. Apenas un 8% de los alumnos finlandeses no terminan sus estudios obligatorios (en España uno de cada tres jóvenes dejan sus estudios antes de acabar la enseñanza secundaria). Durante los primeros seis años de la primaria los niños tienen en todas o en la mayoría de las asignaturas el mismo maestro, que vela por que ningún alumno quede excluido. La educación gratuita desde preescolar hasta la universidad incluye las clases, el comedor, los libros y hasta el material escolar aunque si alguien lo pierde está obligado a pagárselo. «El éxito finlandés se debe a que encajan tres estructuras: la familia, la escuela y los recursos socioculturales (bibliotecas, ludotecas, cines…)», explica Melgarejo.

Finding French Language Apps for the Ipad One of my biggest frustrations as we test iPads in my classroom has been finding appropriate FREE or nearly free apps that are in French. I found a well made website that allows you to search only iPad apps that are available in French. It is called: Mon App Store By using the advanced search you can search by category, price, language and age group and more. It is a great resource when you know how to use it. When you change your language setting your will find that some apps will change to the new language too. Guess who? I quickly discovered that many of the apps I had downloaded on the weekend were available in French after all. So how do you change your devices language?
