      I really like the idea of using Moodle, however I think it is important to put a solution in place that can be supported and sustained. This might be a good option to slowly work into using Moodle.

      This resource is great for visual learners and great to reinforce vocabulary and key words for a unit or lesson. I can see using this as one of the options for a choice board activity.

    I heard a great idea for using Wordle this week. Copy and paste the text of a student's paper. Check to see which words are most predominant. Too many pronouns, unspecific vocabulary ("stuff") or overuse of the same transition words? They should pop right out from the rest of the graphic! Another idea - copy and paste the text of a famous speech - great way to get at the main concepts of the language used.

    Wordle is a tool for generating "word clouds" from text or list of words that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can edit your clouds by adding different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. This is a great tool for priming learning or a before reading activity. It is a great way to introduce vocabulary and teach students the importance of using context clues to decipher word meanings.

    I have used this very fun activity with my French students. I make a "word cloud" with French adjectives and have students find the antonyms.

    I used this tool with my 8th graders after writing a personal narrative. They pasted it in, along with their name, cut and pasted a bunch of times to make it more prominent in the printed out version. What a great end-of-unit culmination! Very eye-catching display.
  •  
    This tool is a great way to engage students at the start of the class. When a text is a difficult read, contains many terms and specialized concepts, I have my students shout out the different terms or words they found important when pre-reading the materials. This gets them thinking about the content, and they hear terms they did not notice within the text or have not heard before which gets them intriqued to find out what they missed. I have found this activity a valuable tool to start a class as it also raises the instructor's authority in front of the class (because of use of modern technology and out-of-box ideas)

    Had fun with this tool last evening. Used it to create program covers for event. Added title of event, date, etc. then created a personalized cover for each attendee by adding his/her name. I was able to save the cover by taking a screenshot using Jing and then could do final sizing.

    I could use Wordle to create a word cloud about "Immigration" and "Ellis Island" to use in education programs. I also envision writing an activity that utilzes wordle in the classroom.

    I've used Wordle in the business world for title pages in Powerpoint, as notes from a brainstorming session and a creative way to cover resource binder. Best of all it's fun to use. I can see using this with my children as a fun way to work on spelling words. What's more fun than making pictures out of words.

    I use Wordle to create "word clouds" when teaching vocabulary, especially to middle and high school students. I am able to create my own text or use text from our reading to enhance the vocabulary lesson. Students then create their own Wordles. Very interactive!

    Yes, Wordle is fun! I have made everything from greeting cards to graphics for webpages with it. It seems there is no end to how creative one can get with it as I have seen some really great clouds out there! And I'm getting so many more ideas from the comments here. Thanks all!
  •  
    I've actually used this tool and am happy to be reminded of how useful it is! I used it in a review for a final exam by creating a word cloud of topics/terms that would be in the exam. The students were divided into 2 teams and I wouldn't show them the word cloud until I read the questions. One person was the runner for each group. Once the question was read, the first runner to find the correct answer (term or topic) got 1 point. The students (vocational college students) loved this. This semester I need to add to the cloud because the students beg for more!

    Make word clouds with text.  Nice to emphase new words / making cover sheets etc.  Nice to think about using bilingually.  For example, in Grade 2 math we could have fun reviewing core vocabulary in two langauges.
  •  
    Wordle can provide a fun way for my learners to make connections between reading and writing.  I would like to try using it as a pre-writing activity to prepare for a summary.

    As a student presentation tool, this is great. My students enjoy a more 'polished' presentation when they can produce it.

Why The FCC Wants To Smash Open The iPhone - washingtonpost.com - 0 views

  • Right about now, Apple probably wishes it had never rejected Google Voice and related apps from the iPhone. Or maybe it was AT&T who rejected the apps. Nobody really knows. But the FCC launched an investigation last night to find out, sending letters to all three companies (Apple, AT&T, and Google) asking them to explain exactly what happened.
  • The FCC investigation is not just about the arbitrary rejection of a single app. It is the FCC's way of putting a stake in the ground for making the wireless networks controlled by cell phone carriers as open as the Internet.
  • On the wired Internet, we can connect any type of PC or other computing device and use any applications we want on those devices. On the wireless Internet controlled by cellular carriers like AT&T, we can only use the phones they allow on their networks and can only use the applications they approve.
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • Google must secretly be pleased as punch. It was only two years ago, prior to the 700MHz wireless spectrum auctions, that it was pleading with the FCC to adopt principles guaranteeing open access for applications, devices, services, and other networks. Now two years later, in a different context and under a different administration, the FCC is pushing for the same principles.
  • FCC cites "pending FCC proceedings regarding wireless open access (RM-11361) and handset exclusivity (RM-11497). That first proceeding on open access dates back to 2007 when Skype requested that cell phone carriers open up their networks to all applications (see Skype's petition here). Like Google Voice, Skype helps consumers bypass the carriers. The carriers don't like that because that's their erodes their core business and turns them into dumb pipes. But dumb pipes are what we need. They are good for consumers and good for competition because they allow any application and any device, within reason, to flower on the wireless Internet.
  • The FCC also wants Apple to explain the arbitrariness of its app approval process: 4. Please explain any differences between the Google Voice iPhone application and any Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) applications that Apple has approved for the iPhone. Are any of the approved VoIP applications allowed to operate on AT&T?s 3G network?5. What other applications have been rejected for use on the iPhone and for what reasons? Is there a list of prohibited applications or of categories of applications that is provided to potential vendors/developers? If so, is this posted on the iTunes website or otherwise disclosed to consumers?6. What are the standards for considering and approving iPhone applications? What is the approval process for such applications (timing, reasons for rejection, appeal process, etc.)? What is the percentage of applications that are rejected? What are the major reasons for rejecting an application?
  • Why does it take a formal request from a government agency to get Apple (and AT&T) to explain what the rules are to get on the wireless Internet?
  •  
    Opening the iPhone would make educational apps much easier to publish. Apple's monopoly means e-text-book readers and classroom use of hand held computers (which is what the iPhone and iPod reall are) have to pay a toll to Apple. Right now, Apple's approval system is cloaked in mystery. Developers have no way to market their products without 'official' approval. Opening up the iPhone and by extension opening up wireless networks around the country will drive down high prices and bring connectivity to more inexpensive computing devices. I hope this FCC investigation is the domino that kicks open the door to the clouds of connectivity that are already out there!
