Puntos y figuras: El acento diacrítico La tilde española (´) es el mejor ejemplo que conozco de peccata minuta («error, falta o vicio leve», según el Diccionario de la lengua española de la Real Academia, o DRAE). Esa es por cierto una locución sustantiva coloquial proveniente del latín, como casi toda nuestra lengua, que no se pone en letra bastardilla o cursiva porque se emplea en español desde hace centurias, igual que muchas otras expresiones idiomáticas romanas: consta en redondilla en el DRAE. Pero nuestra tilde diacrítica (o distintiva) me parece un pequeño pecado original.

Julia Kristeva: "Quien no está enamorado ni se psicoanaliza, está muerto" "La muerte vive una vida humana, dijo Hegel. Esto es cierto cuando no estamos enamorados o en análisis". Julia Kristeva, después de la travesía del estructuralismo y la semiología, Mayo de 1968 y el maoísmo, es una dulce profesora universitaria, inteligente y brillante, preocupada por cuestiones cotidianas. Con ese talante habló la pasada semana en el Instituto Francés de Madrid y dijo: "Quien no escribe ni está enamorado ni se psicoanaliza, está muerto". Julia Kristeva está hoy lejos de los grandes modelos y paradigmas de las ciencias sociales y de la teoría literaria que conmovieron el panorama universitario de los años sesenta y de los setenta.La abyección, el amor, la melancolía, ocupan sus clases y sus reflexiones. Y desde hace unos siete u ocho años todo gira en torno a su labor de psicoanalista, su consulta y sus pacientes, incluso los temas que elige para sus seminarios universitarios.

Constructivist Learning Constructivist Learning by Dimitrios Thanasoulas, Greece Only by wrestling with the conditions of the problem at hand, seeking and finding his own solution (not in isolation but in correspondence with the teacher and other pupils) does one learn. ~ John Dewey, How We Think, 1910 ~ As a philosophy of learning, constructivism can be traced to the eighteenth century and the work of the philosopher Giambattista Vico, who maintained that humans can understand only what they have themselves constructed. A great many philosophers and educationalists have worked with these ideas, but the first major contemporaries to develop a clear idea of what constructivism consists in were Jean Piaget and John Dewey, to name but a few.

21 Digital Tools to Build Vocabulary If you follow this blog, you know that I believe effective vocabulary instruction is just about the most important instructional activity for teachers to get right. For lots of reasons. Vocabulary influences fluency, comprehension, and student achievement. How’s that for starters? In addition, a broad vocabulary is important for effective speaking, listening, reading and writing. Appreciative inquiry According to Gervase R. Bushe[1] (2013) "Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a method for studying and changing social systems (groups, organizations, communities) that advocates collective inquiry into the best of what is in order to imagine what could be, followed by collective design of a desired future state that is compelling and thus, does not require the use of incentives, coercion or persuasion for planned change to occur." Developed and extended since the mid 1980s primarily by students and faculty of the Department of Organizational Behavior at Case Western Reserve University, AI revolutionized the field of organization development and was a precursor to the rise of positive organization studies and the strengths based movement in American management."

Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources I received an inquiry about resources that would help instructors who are about to move into teaching online courses. It made me immediately think back to my first experience with an online session. It was the first ever public session for Placeware - a virtual meeting software company that was much later acquired by Microsoft and became Microsoft Live Meeting. Because it was their first ever public session and my first ever online session neither of us knew what we were doing. The topic was roughly (surprise) New Technology for eLearning.
