9 content curation tools that better organise the web. Content curation is a huge deal on the web today. As content on the web grows exponentially, our ability to make sense of it is inversely proportional. In other words, we are fast sinking under the sheer amount of content pouring onto the web every day. The social web hasn’t made life any easier on content production either – in fact its lowered the barrier to entry. Making Vessel-Specific Training Effective and Practical Using Adaptive Learning It is difficult and expensive to do vessel-specific training well - which is probably why it is under specified, and in many cases poorly implemented - often via job shadowing. But there is a technology called "adaptive learning" that every vessel operator should be aware of as an excellent tool for vessel-specific training. This article looks at what adaptive learning is, and examines one vessel operator’s deployment of it to facilitate vessel-specific training across its fleet of 35 vessels.

Ways to Evaluate Educational Apps I am conducting a series of workshops in Florida and was asked to share a rubric to help teachers evaluate educational apps as part of the workshop. In 2010 Harry Walker developed a rubric, and I used his rubric (with some modifications by Kathy Schrock) as the basis for mine.

Pearltrees on The Internet map The map of the Internet Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet.

Strategy First - Dangerous Waters Cooperative and head-to-head multiplayer modes allow controllable submarine, surface, and air platforms to battle it out in the definitive naval combat experience. Players can command a platform on their own in multiplayer, or collaborate with multiple players in "Multi-station Mode" as they each operate individual crew-stations and strive to work together as a team on the SAME platform. By assigning certain crew stations to be manned by the "virtual crewmen" the player can hand off various functions for the simulation to manage. This allows the player to tailor the game's difficulty level to their liking and the precise level of involvement and micro management that they wish. The player could choose to monitor every single crew station himself or choose to just command the platform and to let the A.I. do the rest. Autocrew control is dynamic so the player can enable or disable this feature for every crew station modeled in the game.

And chances are, it's often difficult to find good software that's also free.
