Create a Badge with Google Drawing If you have thought of creating your own badges here are the steps I use in Google Draw to create them. From Google Drive create a Google Drawing. Use the File menu to choose “Page setup…” Choose “Custom” for the drawing size and choose 300 by 300 pixels. Hold down shift to draw a perfect circle. Make the border of the badge size 8 pixels. Use Control C to copy the circle and Control V to paste the circle (Command C and Command V on a Mac). Change the fill of the 2nd circle to transparent. Click on the image icon in the toolbar. Search Along the top of the upload box are options for how to insert an image. Clip Art Instead of choosing “Any type” of image change the drop down menu to “Clip art.” Resize the inserted clipart to the desired size.

10 Free Web 2.0 Tools And How To Easily Use Them In Your Classroom Earlier this week I had the opportunity to attend the first Ozarks Education Research Initiative (OERI) Teacher Technology Conference at Willard High School (MO). The learning sessions I attended were all very good and I am going to share 10 of the FREE tools I learned about below. I will be incorporating them into how I teach and hopefully by using these tools during faculty meetings, PD sessions, and other opportunities as they arise, this will help us all to find ways to incorporate them into the classroom to engage our students even more. This quote from last week has stuck with me ever since it was spoken – “Date the tool. Marry the idea.” I don’t recall who this is attributed to, but it resonates with me still. Engagement is key!

Badgr Neuroeducación, o cómo educar con cerebro Los reciente descubrimientos acerca de cómo funciona el cerebro están arrojando luz sobre los procesos de aprendizaje. Entender mejor cómo adquirimos nuevos conocimientos puede ayudarnos a mejorar las escuelas y el sistema educativo. Científicos y maestros comienzan a ir de la mano. Léelo en PDF: neuroeducacion O en texto seguido: Si pudiéramos colarnos de puntillas en una clase de literatura de una escuela finlandesa, tal vez pensaríamos que los niños están en el recreo o haciendo una pausa. Es sólo un ejemplo real de algo que la ciencia ahora ha demostrado y que muchos profesores y educadores ya comenzaron a intuir hace tiempo: que no aprendemos a base de memorizar conceptos, repitiendo y repitiendo, sino de hacer, de experimentar y, sobre todo, de emocionarnos. Hasta hace apenas 30 años, se desconocía en gran medida cómo funcionaba el cerebro. ¡Emociónate! ¿Recuerdan cuando iban a la escuela y en determinadas asignaturas les hacían aprender decenas de cosas de memoria?

6 Great Note-Taking Tools for Students and Teachers One of the best things about education technology is that it has allowed students and teachers alike to turn to online annotation and records, making hastily scrawled, illegible scribbles and coffee-stained pages a thing of the past. From university students keeping track of lectures to young students making plans and mind maps, there is an online note-taking tool to suit everyone… 1. Study Blue A great site that allows students to create online flash cards, study guides and quizzes. 2. A brilliantly simple online interactive whiteboard, Scriblink allows notes to be shared as they’re created. 3. Perfect for individual students, Penzu is the online version of the old-fashioned notebook or journal in which you build up your body of lecture or class notes. 4. Pretty much does what it says on the tin! 5. inFocus.cc lets you highlight any section of a live webpage and generate a shareable URL. 6. Do you know any great note-taking tools?

Tipos de jugadores (Bartle) Bien es cierto que existen juegos clásicos que nos gustan a casi todos. Sin embargo, cada vez que cojo el parchís y leo “Para niños de 0 a 99 años” me da la risa. Para empezar, ¿por qué si llegas a los 100 no puedes jugar? Bromas aparte, no creo que todo el mundo busque lo mismo en los juegos. Unos querrán ser los mejores en el parchís para ganar a los demás, mientras que otros serán felices con el mero hecho de reunirse con sus amigos a pasar la tarde. Hagamos un pequeño experimento antes de comenzar. ¿Lo tienes? Esta pregunta, que en principio no parece tener mayor trascendencia, es una aproximación a tu tipografía de jugador. Los triunfadores nacieron para actuar en el mundo, se marcan metas y disfrutan logrando sus objetivos. El mundo es un lugar con infinitas posibilidades para los exploradores, y créeme que no perderán la oportunidad de descubrir cada escondrijo. El tipo sociable se preocupa por los demás jugadores e interactúa con ellos. ¿Qué le gusta a cada uno? Fuentes

50 Education Technology Tools Every Teacher Should Know About Technology and education are pretty intertwined these days and nearly every teacher has a few favorite tech tools that make doing his or her job and connecting with students a little bit easier and more fun for all involved. Yet as with anything related to technology, new tools are hitting the market constantly and older ones rising to prominence, broadening their scope, or just adding new features that make them better matches for education, which can make it hard to keep up with the newest and most useful tools even for the most tech-savvy teachers. Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the tech tools, including some that are becoming increasingly popular and widely used, that should be part of any teacher’s tech tool arsenal this year, whether for their own personal use or as educational aids in the classroom.

What's the best, most effective way to take notes? If it feels like you forget new information almost as quickly as you hear it, even if you write it down, that’s because we tend to lose almost 40% of new information within the first 24 hours of first reading or hearing it. If we take notes effectively, however, we can retain and retrieve almost 100% of the information we receive. Learning how to retain information The most effective note-taking skills involve active rather than passive learning. They must also be thinking about the thinking (metacognition) involved in engaging with the material. Studies have found note taking is most effective when notes are organised and transformed in some way or when a teacher gives examples of good notes. Students often tell teachers they have excellent memories and don’t need to take notes because they can easily recall information. The goal of effective note taking is to help recall what has been learned and retain that information over time. What are the most effective ways to take notes?
