Arch Studio reconnects a series of Beijing houses with rooftop walkways Chinese practice Arch Studio has completely rebuilt a group of old brick and concrete structures in Beijing, joining them together with a "folding" circulation route that reimagines their flat roofs as walkways. Divided into five blocks built by recycling the original building's bricks and arranged between green yards, the building – called Folding Courtyard – now provides spaces that can be rented for use as work or events spaces. "The site consisted of two parts. To the front was open ground with two brick buildings and a tree, and to the rear was a U-shaped structure with a courtyard covered by glass," explained the studio.
15 Characteristics of a 21st-Century Teacher Recent technological advances have affected many areas of our lives, including the way we communicate, collaborate, learn, and, of course, teach. Those advances necessitate an expansion of our vocabulary, producing definitions such as digital natives, digital immigrants, and the topic of this post—21st-century teacher. As I write this, I’m trying to recall if I ever had heard phrases such as 20th-century teacher or 19th-century teacher. Quick Google searches reassure me that there are no such word combinations.
Affordable Blogger Outreach Solution Inkybee: Finding Relevant Blogs Whether you’re a business, a brand or a blogger you need a way to find relevant blogs. Ideally, you want to be able to rank them by influence and reach and keep track of your interactions with the bloggers.

(Originally $3000 per user per year; more recently I’ve been told $7500-$10,000 per user per year.) Inkybee does everything Group High does starting at only $19 per month (or get 2 free months if you pay for a year).

Utopia, Abandoned Ivrea had been a settlement since the fifth century B.C., and under the Roman Republic it went by the name of Eporedia. But it came into greater prominence during the Renaissance, when it fell under the sway of the Turin-based House of Savoy. A sterling example of this past lingers in the convent of San Bernardino, with its excellent frescoes of the life of Christ completed around 1490 by the minor Italian artist Giovanni Martino Spanzotti. It was to this convent that Camillo Olivetti, born and raised in the surrounding Alpine foothills that are visible from nearly anywhere in the town, moved his family when he established his typewriter company in a still-standing brick building. If you stand in front of the tan stucco of San Bernardino, you stare directly at the once-modern exteriors of Olivetti, whose glass exteriors were meant to exude the future and reflect the past.

A Marketer's Complete Guide to Launching Mobile Apps According to former CEO of AppVee and AndroidApps Alex Ahlund, the average cost to develop a mobile app is $6,453 -- and the cost can skyrocket to as much as $150,000 depending on the complexity of the app. Wherever you fall on that spectrum, the money and resources you dedicate to conceptualizing and developing a truly great mobile app can all be put to waste if you don't orchestrate a proper mobile app launch. In fact, in December 2011, the 1 millionth mobile app was pushed to market.

Learner agency » CORE Education Explanation The concept of agency has been central to educational thinking and practice for centuries. The idea that education is the process through which learners become capable of independent thought which, in turn, forms the basis for autonomous action, has had a profound impact on modern educational theory and practice. One way of thinking of learner agency is when learners have “the power to act”. Agency is when learning involves the activity and the initiative of the learner, more than the inputs that are transmitted to the learner from the teacher, from the curriculum, the resources and so forth.
