Le 20 Heures de France 2 du 6 octobre 2013 en replay Deux cibles et deux raids simultanés des forces spéciales américaines, l'un en Libye et l'autre en Somalie pour interpeller 2 chefs islamistes. Washington confirme que la traque contre les terroristes se poursuit. Nous retrouverons sur place Jacques Cardoze. "Nous sommes de facto en compétition." Des enseignes Castorama et Leroy Merlin étaient ouvertes ce dimanche. Et si les solutions pour l'école venaient des enseignants eux-mêmes ? Un nouvel album enregistré à Nashville, une tournée à venir et un film avec Tonie Marshall. Le message est clair : Washington poursuit sa traque des terroristes. Les Etats-Unis proposaient 5 millions de dollars pour la capture d'Abou Anal al Liby. Les Etats-Unis ne cesseront jamais la traque des auteurs présumés d'actes terroristes. Selon ce spécialiste, cette stratégie de contre-terrorisme est de plus en plus employée par l'administration Obama. Hier, les Américains ont lancé deux opérations simultanées.

Create A Classroom Poster Using Google Docs I have been sharing a great deal of educational posters here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. I love using posters with my students and I know many of you love them too.

The process is not very hard and anybody with the rudimentary tech knowledge can do it in a matter of minutes. I have already featured a post containing several web tools to help you create your posters. However, I recently got some requests from some of my readers asking me about the tool I used in creating the posters I shared in my Freebies section.

Blended learning solution in practice Blended learning is not only the buzz word. It is actually working. Why? Because we all realized that no single teaching approach is good enough to work for all learners. Since time immemorial we’ve been blending different instructional methods in our training initiatives. What blended learning actually is? We’ve been hired by a training institution to help them design a blended training program for unemployed people aged from 25 to 35, to become accountants, using relevant accounting software. 1. Benefits: Learners could use these lessons at their own pace and according to their prior knowledge;Learners could come prepared to classroom workshops;Learners could use these learning materials also during and after the classroom workshops if needed; 2.

La classe inversée, une piste d'avenir pour la France ? A l'heure du décrochement sensible de la France dans les grands classements éducatifs internationaux, repenser le mariage entre pédagogie et TICE (les Technologies de l'Information et de la Communication appliquées à l'Enseignement) est essentiel. Non seulement ces dernières peuvent permettre aux enseignants et aux apprenants de développer des compétences utiles aux élèves - créativité et autonomie, capacités de résolution de problèmes et de raisonnement, capacités de sélection de l'information et de communication, etc. - mais elles peuvent en plus renouveler nos approches pédagogiques. Pour cela, il convient cependant d'éviter deux écueils : ne pas voir les TICE comme un élément central dans un processus d'apprentissage global (et donc les intégrer de façon décrochée à la pédagogie) et consécutivement mettre en place la technologie d'abord et seulement ensuite songer aux applications pédagogiques de cette technologie.

Is K–12 blended learning disruptive?An introduction of the theory of hybrids Download the full white paper By Clayton M. Christensen, Michael B. Horn, and Heather Staker May 2013 The Clayton Christensen Institute, formerly Innosight Institute, has published three papers describing the rise of K−12 blended learning—that is, formal education programs that combine online learning and brick-and-mortar schools. Introduction to sustaining and disruptive innovation There are two basic types of innovation—sustaining and disruptive—that follow different trajectories and lead to different results. Disruptive innovations, in contrast, do not try to bring better products to existing customers in established markets. Theory of hybrids Often industries experience a hybrid stage when they are in the middle of a disruptive transformation. How to spot a hybridHybrid innovations follow a distinct pattern.
