USGS Release: Dramatic Developments at Kilauea Volcano: Scientists Work to Keep Public ... - 0 views

  • first explosive eruption since 1924.
    • Ben W
       
      Explosive eruptions are very rare at classic shield volcanoes like Kilauea. It's generalized that shield volcanoes are effusive, not explosive.
  • Sulfur dioxide emissions at the volcano's summit have increased to a rate that is likely to be hazardous for areas downwind of Halema`uma`u crater
    • Ben W
       
      Check out: http://volcano.wr.usgs.gov/kilaueastatus.php for April 2. Also describes a small ash cloud produced by Kilauea. Another rare shield volcano event.
  •  
    New activity at Kilauea doesn't match the "classic" shield volcano descriptions. Good chance to show that while humans try to categorize natural events as well as they can It doesn't always happen that way.

    Good example of "messy" science

MyStudiyo.com - Create a quiz, embed it on your site or blog, all in just 5 minutes! - 0 views

  •  
    What an amazing tool! Currently there are two flavors of quizzed "promotional" and " "add on" promotional allows you to create a standard online "quiz" well if you call standard being able to embed audio, video, pictures, and text! The "Addon" quiz lets participants take the quiz and then add more questions if they want? Classroom thoughts abound in my head! Would love to get some traffic with this group on creating an ed version that would allow you to sign up your kids and moderate the questions they submit...

Streamline It Part I: Diigo or Bust : Metanoia - 0 views

  • Here I was using Diigo, Delicious, Google Notebook, and Zotero for my researching, bookmarking, annotating, and sharing. While all strong tools in their own right, it is pretty clear looking at this list that this is what some would call OVER DOING IT!
  • However, I’m not entirely convinced that Diigo is the best tool to implement within the schools.
    • Brian C. Smith
       
      Yesterday, during the Open PD session on Diigo, I brought up the question whether using tools like this creates/adds to a divide between "power users" and those "just dipping their toes". I most likely won't introduce social bookmarking to teachers new to the read/write web by asking them to use Diigo. Thoughts?
  •  
    Ryan has a great comparison of the various social bookmarking services for those wishing to make a choice.
  •  
    Okay, here it is. I'm dumping Zotero, Delicious, and Google Notebook for Diigo. Blasphemy to some, I know, but I can basically get all I need in one: This chart by Ryan Bretag summarizes what the sites can dol. he left off a few but this is great.

Semantic Web - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  • At its core, the semantic web comprises a set of design principles,[4] collaborative working groups, and a variety of enabling technologies. Some elements of the semantic web are expressed as prospective future possibilities that have yet to be implemented or realized.[2] Other elements of the semantic web are expressed in formal specifications

    Diigo seems to be getting us closer to the sematic web. How does this translate to our schools today and in the future?

Purposeful Networking | Reflection 2.0 - 0 views

  • the older demographic uses networking more for professional purposes
  • Aaron describes how he’s fine with seeing the real side of prospective employees on Facebook profiles and twitterstreams because it gives him a better picture of who people are, but in our opinion and experience, networking is much more than simply posting information about yourself on various sites
  • the education profession historically has been a profession of “isolationism” despite recent efforts to establish Professional Learning Communities within schools.
  • ...1 more annotation...
  • Networking is extremely powerful for connecting educators and students to professionals outside of education - the challenge in education today is breaking down barriers and allowing students and teachers access to the sites and time in the school day and curriculum
  •  
    A good in-depth article arguing that purposeful networking (easily done w/ web2.0 tools) should be a skill addressed in education.
