Young & Creative | Nordicom - 0 views

  •  
    "This book YOUNG & CREATIVE - Digital Technologies Empowering Children in Everyday Life aims to catch different examples where children and youth have been active and creative by their own initiative, driven by intrinsic motivation, personal interests and peer relations. We want to show the opportunities of digital technologies for creative processes of children and young people. The access to digital technology and its growing convergence has allowed young people to experiment active roles as cultural producers. Participation becomes a keyword when "consumers take media into their own hands". Digital technologies offer the potential of different forms of participatory media culture, and finally creative practices. YOUNG and CREATIVE is a mix of research articles, interviews and case studies. The target audience of this book is students, professionals and researchers working in the field of education, communication, children and youth studies, new literacy studies and media and information literacy."

Small Changes in Teaching: The First 5 Minutes of Class - 0 views

  •  
    "Open with a question or two. Another favorite education writer of mine, the cognitive psychologist Daniel Willingham, argues that teachers should focus more on the use of questions. "The material I want students to learn," he writes in his book Why Don't Students Like School?, "is actually the answer to a question. On its own, the answer is almost never interesting. But if you know the question, the answer may be quite interesting." My colleague Greg Weiner, an associate professor of political science, puts those ideas into practice. At the beginning of class, he shows four or five questions on a slide for students to consider. Class then proceeds in the usual fashion. At the end, he returns to the questions so that students can both see some potential answers and understand that they have learned something that day. What did we learn last time? A favorite activity of many instructors is to spend a few minutes at the opening of class reviewing what happened in the previous session. That makes perfect sense, and is supported by the idea that we don't learn from single exposure to material - we need to return frequently to whatever we are attempting to master.But instead of offering a capsule review to students, why not ask them to offer one back to you?Reactivate what they learned in previous courses. Plenty of excellent evidence suggests that whatever knowledge students bring into a course has a major influence on what they take away from it. So a sure-fire technique to improve student learning is to begin class by revisiting, not just what they learned in the previous session, but what they already knew about the subject matter.Write it down. All three of the previous activities would benefit from having students spend a few minutes writing down their responses. That way, every student has the opportunity to answer the question, practice memory retrieval from the previous session, or surface their prior knowledge - and not just the students most likely to

Why We Need a Speed Limit for the Internet - 0 views

    "In terms of energy conservation, the leaps made in energy efficiency by the infrastructure and devices we use to access the internet have allowed many online activities to be viewed as more sustainable than offline. On the internet, however, advances in energy efficiency have a reverse effect: as the network becomes more energy efficient, its total energy use increases. This trend can only be stopped when we limit the demand for digital communication."

16 Great Educational Web Tools and Apps for Inquiry-based Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning - 4 views

  •  
    "As a learning strategy, inquiry-based learning is all about learners constructing their own understanding and knowledge through asking questions. Unlike traditional learning methods that focus primarily on drills, memorization and rote learning, inquiry-based learning is essentially student-centered. It starts with posing questions and directly involves students in challenging hands-on activities that drive students to ask more questions and explore different learning paths. In today's post, we have assembled a collection of some useful web tools and apps that support the ethos of inquiry-based learning. Using these tools will enable students to engage in a wide range of learning tasks that are all driven by a sense of inquiry and questioning."

An Ancient Retrovirus Has Been Found in Human DNA - and it Might Still Be Active - 0 views

  •  
    "Striking evidence has emerged that an ancient virus previously known only from fossil evidence has persistently infected some humans at very low levels for hundreds of thousands or even millions of years. This ancient retrovirus is a kind of living fossil, and the discovery of an intact copy of it within the human genome poses questions as to how it has survived, and suggests others from the distant evolutionary past may lie dormant in the DNA of many species. ..."

Una introducción histórica a la sociedad de consumo (2/3): Fordismo y consumo de masas | Carro de combate - 0 views

  •  
    "A lo largo de los tres siglos que necesitó el capitalismo para consolidarse como sistema hegemónico -en el sentido gramsciano-, se fue imponiendo la ley de la oferta y la demanda, en detrimento de los gremios medievales, que durante siglos impidieron la competencia. Y cambió el significado social del dinero, que ganó un protagonismo central al tiempo que, progresivamente, se justificó el cobro de interés, que había sido condenado durante siglos. Los sistemas políticos europeos se tomaron más en serio la libertad que la igualdad y la fraternidad, de la tríada de valores de 1789 (liberté, égalité, fraternité), y la propiedad privada se erigió en el valor supremo de las constituciones, mientras se expandían por Europa las ideas de Adam Smith y John Locke. El Estado, en su concepción moderna, apareció como garante último de la reproducción del capital como eje ordenador de la sociedad; aunque, eso sí, no exento de tensiones y contradicciones, pues los estados europeos debían -y deben- sostener simultáneamente dos instituciones contradictorias: la acumulación creciente de la riqueza económica y el mantenimiento, al menos formal, de la democracia política. El engranaje capitalista estaba en marcha, pero su despegue sólo fue posible con la Revolución Industrial, que comenzó en la Inglaterra del siglo XVIII y se profundizó y expandió el siglo siguiente, sobre todo, desde el momento en que comenzaron a utilizarse los combustibles fósiles (Fernández Durán y González Reyes, 2014). La ingente cantidad de energía que éstos proveían, junto al desarrollo tecnológico, permitió el abaratamiento de los procesos productivos y la expansión de la industria y, con ello, del consumo. Entre los siglos XVIII y XIX, Europa y Estados Unidos asistieron a un espectacular aumento de la producción: para el historiador Neil McKendrick, fue la primera revolución consumista de la historia. La consecuencia inmediata fue una profundización y aceleración

8 Stages of ADI - Argument-Driven Inquiry - 2 views

  •  
    Web centrada en una variante de la Indagación que pone el foco en la argumentación. Estrategia que cada vez recibe más atención por su gran potencial en el aprendizaje. "The ADI Instructional Model ADI lab activities consist of the same 8 stages. Each stage is designed to give students an opportunity to participate in one or more science and engineering practices. The stages of ADI are the same for each investigation so students have an opportunity to use the same science and engineering practices, but different disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts to figure out how thing work or why things happen. This instructional approach also gives students an opportunity to learn how to propose, support, evaluate, and revise ideas through discussion and in writing."
