Edistorm - 2 views

  •  
    Tool to allow real time online brainstorming.  Looks quite clever but I need a real situation to try it properly.

    "Edistorm allows you to organize your ideas in a real time interactive wall. Each sticky can have it's own color and the users decide what the arrangement means to them.

    This freeform method of organizing ideas will feel familiar to anyone that has thrown stickies on their walls."

    Great little app that lets you grap the license and other details from a flickr image.  Intended to be used when you link to an image and ensure you attribute it correctly.

    "With ImageCodr.org, there is no need to do all this manually, you simply enter in the URL of the picture page (as seen in your browser) you are interested in and ImageCodr.org will generate the ready to use HTML code. It will also display a brief and easy license summary, so you don't get in legal trouble because you missed something."

Whole Education - Introduction - Introducing Whole Education - 0 views

  •  
    A group looking to extend education beyond testing and into life skills.

    "A gulf has opened up between what education systems provide and what children and young people need. Our schools and colleges rightly try to to ensure that young people are literate, numerate and gain academic qualifications. But the emphasis on testing and passing exams often squeezes out other skills that are just as vital in today's world.

    The leading non-political and non-profit-making organisations that have come together to form Whole Education are determined to change this. They want all young people to receive a well-rounded education that they can relate to. They want all to learn practical skills such as communication and teamwork, to develop qualities such as resilience and empathy and to acquire knowledge that goes beyond literacy and numeracy to an understanding of our culture. A Whole Education will combine practical skills with theory, vocational and academic study for all young people whatever their ability."

"The Digital World of Young Children: Emergent Literacy" | Pearson Foundation - 2 views

  •  
    "Blanchard's and Moore's research finds that developmental milestones are changing as a new generation of young children approach learning and literacy in ways not thought possible in the past. According to this new report, digital media is already transforming the language and cultural practices that enable early literacy development, making possible a new kind of personal and global interconnectedness.

    The research reveals that:

    *

    Opportunities to engage with digital media increasingly prevail through the use of mobile devices-and in developing countries access to mobile devices is more commonplace than access to other technologies
    *

    Developmental milestones are changing as young people's access to mobile and digital technology grows.
    *

    Digital media positively impacts children's opinion of learning, providing engagement opportunities not always seen with print materials."
