Twinery :histoires à suites multiples Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Developing Your Digital Study Skills Making the move from our safe and trusted traditional literacy habits to newer digital skills can be quite a challenge, but as teachers I think we are really unlikely to be able to use technology and help our students use technology really effectively unless we are prepared to face this challenge. Technology needs to be more than part of the way we teach but it also has to be part of the way we ourselves continue to learn and part of our everyday professional practice. Scrible is one tool that has been helping me to make this step away from my paper and pencil study habits and towards a more efficient and digital way of learning.
Google URL Shortener Posted by Michael Hermanto, Software Engineer, Firebase We launched the Google URL Shortener back in 2009 as a way to help people more easily share links and measure traffic online. Since then, many popular URL shortening services have emerged and the ways people find content on the Internet have also changed dramatically, from primarily desktop webpages to apps, mobile devices, home assistants, and more. To refocus our efforts, we're turning down support for goo.gl over the coming weeks and replacing it with Firebase Dynamic Links (FDL).

I wouldn’t say I’m a master at English, but I’m pretty good at it. If you’re reading this, you’re probably pretty good at it, too. That makes a lot of us who are pretty good at English. Here’s the bad news: there are a lot of native English speakers who should be good at English but aren’t. It could be that apostrophes are confusing to them, they’re lazy about applying them, they just don’t care or all of the above.

Unusual Writing Ideas for Extraordinary Writers Unusual writing ideas for extraordinary writers When we think about writing ideas, what usually comes to mind are characters, plots, scenes, language, and images. Ideas almost always have to do with concepts and matters of the mind, but what about the physical act of writing? Most of us write at our computers, and many of us still use good old-fashioned pen and paper. Isn’t it Ordinary?

April’s Infographics & Interactives Galore – Part Six There are just so many good infographics and interactives out there that I’ve begun a new semi-regular feature called “Infographics & Interactives Galore.” You can see others at A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists On Infographics and by searching “infographics” on this blog. I’ll still be publishing separate posts to individually highlight especially useful infographics and interactives, but you’ll find others in this regular feature. Here goes: Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: This Is Why Handwriting Helps Students Learn Better February 8, 2015 In "what does your handwriting say about you" we learned that the way we write can reveal great deal about our personalities. For instance, the people who use small letters are said to be shy, withdrawn, or meticulous while those who tend to opt for moderate letters are well-adjusted and adaptable. Using wide spacing, on the other hand, indicates a person who enjoys freedom and doesn't like to be overwhelmed or crowded. The shape of letters can also tell something about your personality traits. For example, using rounded letters shows that one is creative and artistic; pointed letters are indicative of aggressive and intense behaviour. In today's post, I am introducing you to another equally important infographic but this time on the importance of handwriting for enhancing learning.
