Livre gratuit: Top sites pour télécharger des livres en Français Le moyen le plus efficace pour s'approprier de la culture est de lire les livres, celui-ci a pu résister durant des siecles à tous les autres moyens qui ont essayé de le remplacer mais vainement. Le secret de cette résistance farouche est due à sa capacité de s'adapter avec le développement de la technologie moderne qui a engendré ce qu'on appelle le livre électronique désigné aussi par le e-book.

Liens Utiles, plus de 45000 références pour tout connaître ! BeenThere-DoneThat - An illustrated travel guide to Great Britain Create Your SMART Lessons from home for free! Jul Picture this: You are at home and you have this awesome idea for a Smart Lesson but your not at work to build it. You look at your computer and you don’t have Smart Notebook installed. If we head over to to the Smart Notebook Express Website , we will be presented with 2 options. Here we can create a new notebook file or open one that you already have done. I will say this application does have some limitations, it is a little bit “laggy” and its not the fastest thing in the world. The Express edition would also be great for stations in a classroom where you could set up a different assignment (like a grammer activity where they have to correct the sentence) at each station. If you need ideas for your lessons, check out my previous article “ So you got a Smartboard, Now what? How could you use this in the classroom? Thanks No related posts.

ISTE Daily: Final Day, Wrap-Up and Takeaways My plane landed around 5:30am EST. The overnight red-eye is never pleasant on a full flight and the work the next day put me into a contemplative (or zombie-like) mood until that night's #BYOTchat where some of the colleagues I met and #ISTE12 made some lurking in-roads into a new PLN. But before the reflection, Let's get to the last day: 7am SHRED Session: I like the SHRED sessions for their inspiration in a broad variety of topics. I also eliminated one of my planned presentation based on the two-minute preview that made it clear this session was going to go in a direction in which i wasn't interested in...guess it has to cut both ways, neh? The Future of Leadership: Since I now had an open session spot, I turned to my PLN and found a new session that looked intriguing (thx @wkingbg). #ISTELOL -- a break for humor One hour of education and edtech snark. [Interlude] While this was going on, the Google I/O announced the Nexus 7 tablet. Primary Sources and Digital Tools Final Keynote

Nick Brandt : Photography Top 10 Misused English Words Humans Many people who’ve had to proof read documents start to develop a kind of compulsive “tutting” at misused words. Here’s my top ten words that are misused by either professional writers or public speakers who, let’s be honest, should really know better. I’m not being paid for this, so I don’t feel so bad if there are mistakes! “Refute” means to “disprove with evidence” and yet it’s commonly used, even by professional writers, to mean “rebut” which carries a similar meaning but isn’t quite so strong, as it can also mean “argue against.” Nowadays, it’s almost universally assumed that “instant” actually means “quickly” or “without intervention.” “Enormity” means “extreme evil”, but it’s often used to mean “enormousness”. Less is used when comparing quantities that can’t be counted; for example, “I’d like less milk.” Chronic is originally a medical term meaning “long term”; it has the same root as “chronometer”. Does “disinterested” mean the same as “uninterested”?

Twitter Encouraging Girls To Learn To Code While debates about issues related to women in the workforce rage, one thing is certain: women continue to be woefully underrepresented in certain fields. Specifically, only a fraction of graduates in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, medicine) fields are women. There have been efforts in recent years to change that. In a post on Twitter’s blog today the social media company announced that they were partnering with one such organization, Girls Who Code. This summer in New York Girls Who Code will be holding an eight-week program that will teach basic coding and computer science to high school girls. For more information on Girls Who Code, you can check out their website.

The Bureau has been quietly meeting with representatives of these companies, as well as Microsoft (which owns Hotmail and Skype), Facebook and others to argue for a legislative proposal, drafted by the FBI, that would require social-networking sites and VoIP, instant messaging and e-mail providers to alter their code to make their products wiretap-friendly. The FBI has previously complained to Congress about the so-called “Going Dark” problem – the difficulty of doing effective wiretap surveillance as more communications have moved from traditional telephone services to internet service companies. Under the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act, or CALEA, passed in 1994, telecommunications providers are required to make their systems wiretap-friendly.
