Why It's Time To Build A Powerful Personal Learning Network Many educators refer to the connections made via Twitter as their PLN or Professional Learning Network.

Introducing Gargl: Create an API for any website, in any programming language, without writing a line of code Warning:Integrating into a website / service without permission is a legally grey area. If a site does not have a documented API, its owners may be unhappy with you reverse-engineering their unofficial API and using it as part of an application, service, or other purpose. Legal cases have previously been fought and both won and lost by developers “misusing” an unofficial API for their own purposes. Use caution and seek legal counsel before integrating another party’s unofficial API into any product, service, or tool you plan to expose to yourself or others.
Places: Evaluating Mobile Learning In order to move from theory to practice in mobile learning, one needs a framework. The JISC Mobile InfoKit introduces its frameworks discussion by listing six ‘course aspects’ (my term) which may be behind the drivers for mobile learning. The first four are pedagogical approaches. In sum, they are a pretty good, though not comprehensive, list of the ‘ideas behind the drivers’ toward mobile learning. • Behaviourist – activities promoting learning as a an observable change in behaviour• Constructivist – activities in which new concepts are actively constructed, based on a combination of previous and current knowledge• Situated – activities encouraging learning in an authentic context• Collaborative – activities encouraging learning through interaction with others• Informal and lifelong - learning activities outside dedicated, formal environments or curricula• Learning and teaching support – activities which help to coordinate learners and learning resources 1.
Using Multiple SSL Certificates in Apache with One IP Address About the TLS Extension Server Name Indication (SNI) When website administrators and IT personnel are restricted to use a single SSL Certificate per socket (combination of IP Address and socket) it can cost a lot of money. This restriction causes them to buy multiple IP addresses for regular https websites from their domain host or buy hardware that allows them to utilize multiple network adapters. However, with Apache v2.2.12 and OpenSSL v0.9.8j and later you can use a transport layer security (TLS) called SNI. SNI can secure multiple Apache sites using a single SSL Certificate and use multiple SSL Certificates to secure various websites on a single domain (e.g. www.yourdomain.com, site2.yourdomain.com) or across multiple domains (www.domain1.com, www.domain2.com)—all from a single IP address.
The 20 best tools for online collaboration A team of designers does not always work in the same office; you work in distributed groups, some of you may be working from home, and clients can be based all over the world. This is where collaboration tools come in – they make it easier and faster for designers to get feedback and approve artwork in a professional manner, and they come in all sort of forms, from free Android apps to Chrome extensions. Some are created specifically for designers, some serve as a concept crafting whiteboard often with tools to make simple annotations, and some are all-in-one web apps that include an element of project management.

The Teacher's Quick Guide To Educational Twitter Hashtags The Teacher’s Quick Guide To Educational Twitter Hashtags Added by Jeff Dunn on 2012-10-18 I heart Twitter. If you haven’t yet, follow @edudemic to keep up with what we’re doing, working on, and seeing (like last night’s tech event with GDGT in downtown Boston!). Twitter has become a massive hit in education and it’s too big to ignore. Using Digital Tools for Differentiation Direct Address to this Page: Anyone who has worked in education for any length of time knows just how important it is for teachers to create differentiated classrooms. If schools are truly working to ensure success for every student, learning experiences need to be customized and aligned to student interests, needs, and unique learning styles. The challenge, however, rests in making differentiation manageable. While few teachers doubt the importance of differentiating, many struggle to make customized learning spaces a reality.
PS 151 New York City uses EasyTech with ELL students Gordon Graham has spent nearly two-thirds of his 14-year teaching career in New York City’s highly diverse PS 151 , a K-5 elementary school located in Woodside, a community in Queens. In that time he has seen his school’s diversity grow with the number of immigrant families from all over the world, and with that, a significant increase in range of student abilities. Woodside was once the American hub for newly arriving Irish immigrant families. Now the numbers of immigrants from dozens of other countries has grown, creating a school comprised of a rich mix of families from Greece, Russia, China, Japan, many Hispanic nations, as well as a large African American population. This provides the teaching staff with enormous challenges, not the least of which is that most students arrive with little or no English-speaking skills.
