  • A long-time huge supporter of educational effort is the Discovery Channel. Among my favorite stations. The Discovery Channel and also found itself embracing Second Life in a big way with regard to their educational effort and so, they often team-up Second Life activities in conjunction with their television programming, which I personally feel is brilliant! It started with teaming up their web properties with whatever is going on regarding the television schedule. Now, mix-in Second Life and you can experience Shark Week like you never have before, scuba gear included! Spend a little quality television time on the Discovery Channel during ‘Shark Week’, learn more about it all at the Discovery Channel web site, then take a peek at the Discovery Education Network web and plop in-world to actually experience a bit of what you learn.

Howard Gardner: 'Multiple intelligences' are not 'learning styles' - 15 views

  •  
    "It's been 30 years since I developed the notion of "multiple intelligences." I have been gratified by the interest shown in this idea and the ways it's been used in schools, museums, and businesses around the world. But one unanticipated consequence has driven me to distraction-and that's the tendency of many people, including persons whom I cherish, to credit me with the notion of 'learning styles' or to collapse 'multiple intelligences' with 'learning styles.' It's high time to relieve my pain and to set the record straight."
