French Politics: France's Integration Problem A correspondent of mine stated this morning that the recent terror attacks demonstrated that France had "spectacularly failed" to resolve its integration problem. Here is my reponse: How do we judge relative success and failure of integration? Have we been spectacularly successful in the US in integrating African-Americans (who have been here longer than most of us but still face challenges all their own)? The French journalist Jean Quatremer pointed out this morning that because France doesn't keep ethnic/racial statistics, we don't know how many Muslims serve in the French military and police, but we do know that they are "spectacularly" overrepresented. They are also well represented in the state bureaucracy.

How to Take a 3D Photo with Any Smartphone 3D has a way of popping in and out of short-lived trends, but the ability to create a 3D photo without any added hardware could give the technology more staying power than 3D TVs. Shared to your social media feeds, 3D photos will appear to bend and move as friends scroll by, creating catchy graphics that are more likely to pause that scroll. 3D traditionally requires multiple cameras in order to capture the data to reconstruct the depth of the scene, but thanks to artificial intelligence, 3D photos can now be snapped from single-lens smartphones and even generated from existing 2D photos. While the quality won’t replace that of an actual 3D camera or photogrammetry, it also means you don’t need to purchase or bring along any additional gear in order to make one. Of course, if you plan on shooting a lot of 3D, dedicated 3D cameras will still offer more quality and less room for error. 1.
Getting Started with EdPuzzle – Teachers Vs Zombies When I first began using station-rotation blended learning in my classroom, I worked in a district that had purchased licenses for Compass Learning Odyssey. Compass was mainly used as a credit recovery curriculum, but I was able to pull out specific lessons relevant to the content standards I was teaching in my traditional English 9 & 10 classes. Initially, I used these lessons during the Headphones station in my classroom. (You can learn more about the Headphones Station’s role in blended learning on this blog post.) As I began integrating more project-based learning into my classes, I discovered that sometimes I needed shorter videos or videos on topics that were not covered in Compass, such as growth mindset and 20Time project ideas. I had heard about EdPuzzle at an EdTechTeam Google Apps for Education (GAFE) Summit.
