12 Principles Of Mobile Learning 12 Principles Of Mobile Learning by Terry Heick Ed note: This post has been updated and republished from a 2012 post Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana - Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Maps (DMMmaps) Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana and the 0.32% The Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana is one of the world’s largest libraries in the world and is home to around 80’000 manuscripts. Of these, only 261 are digitized today (that is: 0.32%), although there is an ongoing effort to digitize more. We are going to give a look at the website where these manuscripts are kept and made available to everyone. The link we have inserted in our DMMmaps takes the visitor directly to the list of all the available manuscripts. In all honesty, it is quite bare.
My Top 5 Applications for Learning Logs Our kids work very hard at school, creating original artifacts that they are proud of. Wouldn’t it be great if collecting, organizing, commenting on, and displaying certain pieces of a child’s work started in kindergarten (or earlier) and continued through high school? This may sound like an administrative nightmare, but with current tools and a willingness to be proactive (teachers, students, and parents), our students could amass an incredible body of work, knowledge, and skills that would not only be something to look at, but help them view the tremendous amount of progress they really make throughout their school years. There is much literature and conversation now about ePortfolios, with some software programs devoted to this task. But some people (including me) advocate for a more creative approach, one where the student assumes ownership and creativity.
14 Song-Based Lesson Plans and Activities Although I know I like using music in my teaching, I never thought there would be so much of it on this blog when I started it over a year ago. Songs are fun, authentic sources with multiple possibilities in the classroom, but the main reason for having published 14 lesson plans and activities based on songs here is to a large extent due to copyright issues: while lyrics and songs are easily available for everyone online, access to other types of authentic texts is more limited because of copyright constraints. I also think the key to a successful song-based lesson is to deal with the text as you would with any other type of short text, whether written or oral, to practise a variety of comprehension skills, work on specific grammar and vocabulary, or introduce a topic for discussion. Choosing a song that meets the students’ needs is not always easy, though.
English e-Reader David Copperfield was born in a few months after his father's death. When he was still a young boy his mother married a man named Murdstone. Terrible relationship was immediately set between David and his stepfather. Lighting Setups From Scott Kelby's Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It Seminar Scott Kelby is on tour with his Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It seminar. I was able to attend a hands-on workshop, and then hit the seminar the following Friday when it came to Orlando. He mentioned to me before the seminar that it was going to be a lot of deja vu for me, and he was right. However, it was still very informative to see it the second time around because my head was in a bit of a different place for a seminar vs. a hands-on workshop.
Welcome to the Suda On Line (SOL) The Suda on Line For Attic phrase in Plato let them seek, I poach in Suidas for unlicens'd Greek. ― Alexander Pope, The Dunciad 4.227-8 Pope’s ‘Suidas’ is not a man but a work, The Suda (or Stronghold): a massive 10th century Byzantine Greek historical encyclopedia of the ancient Mediterranean world, covering the whole of Greek and Roman antiquity and also including Biblical and Christian material. Preserved in several medieval manuscripts, it has been edited and published several times since the end of the 14th century in traditional hard-copy scholarly editions, most recently that of Ada Adler (Teubner, 5 volumes: 1928-1938, reprinted 1971).
How to Use Google Search More Effectively [INFOGRAPHIC] Among certain circles (my family, some of my coworkers, etc.) I'm known for my Googling skills. I can find anything, anywhere, in no time flat. My Google-fu is a helpful skill, but not one that's shrouded in too much mystery — I've just mastered some very helpful search tricks and shortcuts and learned to quickly identify the best info in a list of results. Teaching Resources I offer a variety of resources for teachers through my TeachersPayTeachers.com store. You'll find teaching units and literature guides for novels, interactive notebook activities, Common Core resources to use with non-fiction and literature, editable materials that can be used on Google Drive, Edmodo, and other secure sharing sites, poetry and figurative language resources, memes and other classroom decor, coloring pages for teens and adults, and so much more. I also sell clip art for commercial, personal, and educational use. Most of my clip art can be used commercially with no strings attached (i.e. no extra license fees; you do NOT have to give credit or link back to me in your product). Thanks for visiting!
Story of the Week Jack London (1876–1916) From Jack London: Novels and StoriesIn 1902 Jack London published a story in Youth’s Companion, a magazine for young boys. Six years later he recalled the story, wrote a new version, and sent it to Richard Watson Gilder, editor of The Century Magazine. It was accepted and published, but questions were raised about the provenance of the story. A few months later, after the magazine was printed, London responded to Gilder:
