Inset is dead! Long live Inset! Inset days are often criticised, with both teachers and parents finding them an annoyance. Jane Basnett, Downe House’s head of Modern Foreign Languages, tells us why Inset days need to be remoulded into something worthwhile. September: So, the lovely, long, hot summer is over. Well, maybe not so hot, but lovely and long anyway. You have rested, recuperated and regrouped.
3D Builder User Manual A tutorial series about 3D builder is available on the Channel 9 - 3D Printing blog: Figure 1 - 3D Builder Start Screen 3D object can be loaded using 3 different methods. One can either pick a model from the 3D Builder Library, load them from an external file or create a new one from a Kinect v2 Sensor scan (see 3D Scanning).
The Best Education Technology Resources We’re building up a resource that we think you’ll enjoy. It’s a curated set of lists designed to showcase the best education technology resources you should know about. From apps to laptops to tablets and beyond, we’re working on building the must-have guide to all things education technology. To check out one of the lists (or to add to a list – which is fun and easy to do!) just click on one of the images below. Wolfram Programming Cloud: Introducing a Programming Revolution Combine and Conquer Because everything in the Wolfram Language is coherently built in, you can routinely combine functionality from vastly different areas, opening up a new level of programming and algorithm innovation. Insert Visualization Anywhere The Wolfram Language makes it trivial to insert aesthetically optimized static or dynamic visualization anywhere—bringing any aspect of your program to life.

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). It divides educational objectives into three "domains": cognitive, affective, and psychomotor (sometimes loosely described as "knowing/head", "feeling/heart" and "doing/hands" respectively).
40 Examples of stunning Cinemagraphs Cinemagraphs are still images that contain within themselves living elements allowing a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved. Cinemagraph is a technique of blending the effects of images and videos. It was introduced by a New York fashion photographer Jamie Beck, in collaboration with motion graphics designer Kevin Burg. Since then, many other designers have created similar forms of cinemagraphs. Cinemagraphs are typically simply created as animated .gif files making them easy to use on a web page. Technology Tools Education World offers new technology content every day. Some of our pieces related to technology tools can be found in this archive. We do update these aritcles reguarly, but given the changing nature of technology, we cannot promse that every piece will be on the cutting edge.
Microsoft Educator Network - For educators : Overview Connect and interact Connect with educators around the world. Advertisement Discover Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) from great universities. Most offer “certificates” or “statements of completion,” though typically not university credit. A “$” indicates that the course is free, but the credential costs money. (See the key below to understand the credentials offered by each course, and see our MOOC FAQ if you have general questions.) For Teachers Technology is a powerful tool to support teachers. The following resources are available to help teachers transition to using technology to enhance learning activities as well as collaborate and engage with other educators. Featured Resource Future Ready Schools: Professional Learning Toolkit November 2014 The toolkit provides rubrics, checklists and examples to assist district teams as they develop, refine, and evaluate professional learning plans that align with their capacity, learning goals, and standards of professional learning.
Home In iTEC (Innovative Technologies for Engaging Classrooms, 2010-2014), European Schoolnet worked with education ministries, technology providers and research organisations to transform the way that technology is used in schools. Over the course of the project, educational tools and resources were piloted in over 2,500 classrooms across 20 European countries, with the goal of providing a sustainable model for fundamentally redesigning teaching and learning. The project involved 26 project partners, including 14 Ministries of Education, and funding of €9.45 million from the European Commission’s FP7 programme. The project ended in August 2014.
