Jiddu Krishnamurti To have compassion means to have passion for all things, not just between two people, but for all human beings, for all things of the earth, the animals, the trees, everything the earth contains. When we have such compassion we will not despoil the earth as we are doing now, and we will have no wars. Jiddu Krishnamurti (12 May 1895 – 17 February 1986) was a philosopher, public speaker, and writer, on psychological, sociological, and spiritual subjects. Quotes[edit] What brings understanding is love. When your heart is full, then you will listen to the teacher, to the beggar, to the laughter of children, to the rainbow, and to the sorrow of man. 1920s[edit] 1940s[edit] And as we are — the world is. 1950s[edit] If I have a little mind and I think of God, the God of my thinking will be a little God, though I may clothe him with grandeur, beauty, wisdom, and all the rest of it. 1960s[edit] There is inattention and rare attention and we are trying to bridge the one to the other. 1970s[edit]

Αθανασόπουλος - Νέες Τεχνολογίες Γιατί υπάρχει αυτός ο ιστότοπος Αρχικά, όταν ξεκίνησα τα μαθήματα στο ΜΔΕ, βρήκα βολικό να ανεβάσω στο Διαδίκτυο τις παρουσιάσεις που θα χρησιμοποιούσα, για την περίπτωση που ξεχάσω σπίτι το USB stick ή αυτό κρίνει πως είναι ευκαιρία να μου αποδείξει πόσο αναντικατάστατο είναι... Το να ανεβάσω τα έτοιμα βοηθήματα και τις παρουσιάσεις ώστε να είναι στη διάθεση των φοιτητών και τις ώρες που αυτοί δεν είναι στο Πανεπιστήμιο, ήταν το επόμενο λογικό βήμα. Κατόπιν ανέβασα και μερικά video screencasts τα οποία σχολιάστηκαν θετικά και αυτό με βοήθησε να φτιάξω κι άλλα. Τέλος το site αυτό καθ' εαυτό αποτελεί μαι απλή εφαρμογή σύγρονων τεχνολογιών σχεδιασμού ιστοσελίδων, όντας βασισμένο σε HTML5 και CSS3. Τα βοηθήματα Πρόκειται για πληροφορίες που υποστηρίζουν ή επεκτείνουν (για τους διαβαστερούς) αυτά που περιλαμβάνονται στα εργαστήρια και τις διαλέξεις.

Three Ways to Cut, Mix, & Mash YouTube Videos This post was inspired by a request from a reader for a tool that can be used to mash-up YouTube clips. YouTube is full of great content that can be useful in the classroom (YouTube is also full of nonsense that causes schools to block it). Sometimes you only need to show a part of a video to illustrate a point. Other times it could be useful to string together a series of videos. Disclaimer: Some of these tools might be interpreted as a violation of YouTube's terms of service. TubeChop gives you the ability to clip a section from any YouTube video and share it. Splicd is a service that lets users select and share a segment of a YouTube video. If you made mix tapes in the 80's, the concept of Drag On Tape will be familiar to you. On a related note, if you have raw video footage that you want to edit or you have a collection of your own videos on YouTube that you want to edit, the YouTube video editor is quite easy to use.

Bloom's Taxonomy Bloom's wheel, according to the Bloom's verbs and matching assessment types. The verbs are intended to be feasible and measurable. Bloom's taxonomy is a classification of learning objectives within education. It is named for Benjamin Bloom, who chaired the committee of educators that devised the taxonomy, and who also edited the first volume of the standard text, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: The Classification of Educational Goals. Bloom's taxonomy refers to a classification of the different objectives that educators set for students (learning objectives). Bloom's taxonomy is considered to be a foundational and essential element within the education community. History[edit] Although named after Bloom, the publication of Taxonomy of Educational Objectives followed a series of conferences from 1949 to 1953, which were designed to improve communication between educators on the design of curricula and examinations.

Observing Sociality and Reality » Blog Archive » Tim on Etienne (Part I: Learning in Practice) This post constitutes the first delicate steps in preparing myself to teach the Knowledge Management 2009 course at the University of Amsterdam. The parts are based on Wenger’s (1998) seminal work on communities of practice. Introduction “Perhaps more than learning itself, it is our conception of learning that needs urgent attention” (p.9). Wenger argues that our ‘modern’ conceptions of learning are indoctrinated with classroom settings, exams and cognitive teaching styles. The relevance for rethinking learning, is that modern societies come to see learning as a pivotal element in its existence and dealing with its increasing complexity and velocity . Wenger’s social learning theory has four premises about the nature of knowledge, knowing and knowers: We humans are social beings;Knowing is a participating in pursuing an enterprise;Knowledge then is a matter of competence accomplished in pursuing these enterprises; andMeaning is what learning is to produce.

The Montessori Great Lesson Page My name is Barbara Dubinsky. I have been involved in the Montessori community for 30 years, through my own children, as an assistant, administrator, Lower Elementary teacher and now as a trainer. Fourteen years ago, I joined the movement of Montessori into the public schools - a most exciting expansion. I teach at a magnet school in Charlotte, NC. It is both challenging and ever so rewarding at the same time. Our school is given much freedom to do what we need to do as Montessorians; we have fought fiercely to have this freedom and have proven that what we do is the best system for children. For many years, as a member of the Montessori Educational Listserv ( listserv@aol.com - write Subscribe Montessori-L in the body of the message) I saw many questions about the Great Lessons themselves and how to keep the work of the Great Lessons active in the class. This year I have finally pulled together all my work into four albums.

Didactique professionnelle Je pensais qu’en atelier j’aurais plus de temps libre pour donner des explications et faire des démonstrations aux élèves. Malheureusement, ce ne fut pas le cas. Pendant que je travaillais avec un élève, j’en avais trois autres qui venaient me demander quoi faire, deux autres qui me demandaient si ce qu’ils avaient fait était correct, trois autres qui avaient décidé de faire autre chose que ce que j’avais demandé et la balance restait à leur établi à ne rien faire. À travers tout cela, je tentais de donner mes explications jusqu’au moment ou j’entendais un outil faire des sons bizarres. Je courrais pour aller voir et donner les indications, réparer l’outil ou l’ajuster pendant que le dernier élève expliquait aux autres sa frustration d’avoir été abandonné par le prof pendant son explication. Il fallait faire quelque chose. J’ai compris, avec le temps, que le travail en atelier faisait partie d’un tout dont il fallait synchroniser chacune des composantes pour pouvoir arriver.

7 Good Screen Capture Tools for Teachers Introducing new technology tools to your students or to your colleagues can become a frustrating exercise if you end up repeating the same step-by-step directions over and over again. Not only is it frustrating for you to repeat those directions, it can also be frustrating for the students who want to go ahead but can't because you're waiting until everyone is on the same page. One way to avoid that is to create annotated screen captures of the tools you're introducing. Another way to avoid repeating directions over and over again is to creating screencast videos in which you explain each step of the process. The tool that I use most often of creating annotated screen capture images is Jing. To use Jing you must download and install the free software for your Mac or PC. Show Me What's Wrong is a free service offered by Screencast-O-Matic. Screenr is a very simple, easy-to-use tool for creating screencast videos.
