teaching technology to promote learning: Tools. Let's give them In this decade of digital communication including texting, collaboration, social learning, presentations, wikis, rss feeds and blogs we must now make available to students and teachers tools that promote and enhance a style of teaching and learning that promote the development of skills. This style moves beyond the facts into explaining differences, seeing similarities, thinking creatively, working creatively with others, implementing innovations, reasoning effectively, making judgments and decisions, solving problems, communicating across cultural and country lines through collaboration with others. It includes hyperlinked writing, digital citizenship, publishing, commenting, sharing, networking and much more. We pay a lot of lip service to “teaching students to be life long learners.” A few examples that could be accomplished. Sue has missed three days of classes due to illness.

9 Free Tools That Help Me Build Better E-Learning » The Rapid eL I get a lot of questions from blog readers who are on a limited budget. They want to know about free tools that they can use to build their elearning courses. In this economy, the question probably means more than it did a couple of years ago. I’m a junky for all of the free stuff online. In today’s post, I’ll share with your some of the free tools that I use regularly to help me be more productive. 1. Pixie is a simple color picker. 2. Color Schemer helps you create color schemes. You can also download the software, but that isn’t free. I also like to use other sites such as Kuler and Color Scheme Designer. 3.

emotion | Definition, Meaning and Translation of emotion | TermWiki.com emotion Emotion is a state of the organism in which the form and frequency of several items of behavior in the ongoing operant repertoire are altered. The term emotion, as it is classically used, has the disadvantage of referring to an inner state which usually cannot be observed. The term emotional stimulus overcomes some of these difficulties because it describes a stimulus which alters many ongoing performances in the organism's repertoire other than those directly affected by reinforcement or extinction.

Hot Potatoes Créer questionnaires iPad Apps for Education Add As the first real contender in the category of streamlined computing tablets, the iPad has captured its share of hype. The iPad’s potential remains undeniable, particularly in education. Education is discovery, education is interaction, and education is exploration. These are all activities facilitated by the iPad. I believe that the ultimate goal of the iPad (and its future ilk) is to be so intuitive that the user will forget they are interacting with a piece of technology. The iPad (or any technology) will not replace live instruction, as some have suggested, anytime soon. Few barriers stand between my vision for the classroom of tomorrow and the iPad concept as it stands today. For a more concrete sense of what the iPad can do, I’ve made my picks for the best existing iPad apps for education, and provided examples of where I hope developers take their apps in the near future.
