Innovation Design In Education – ASIDE: Projects In Web 3.0: Privacy Is The New Predator

This post came to me right in the middle of looking for some good visuals for my upcoming workshop on mindful use of technology.

I am curious to know how many people use avatars and encourage their students to use them? I myself am ambiguous about it, especially since if what you are posting reflects positively on you. I mean, I want my posts to be under my name- I put a lot of thought in them and want to stand behind them. But perhaps I am missing some component of this? Perhaps it is different when you are talking about 6 year olds who are beginning to make projects online or use apps that require usernames and passwords. As a high school, we are already dealing with students who have vast social media networks and who’s names are already out in the world. Our focus is more on how to get them to put their best foot forward and tap the potential of social media to bolster their budding academic and/or professional careers.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this!

Oh and P.S.  Check out the Facehawk thing- it takes your facebook timeline and makes a music video out of it and then rearranges the posts in the shape of a hawk. Very cool and very very freaky. This is mine:

Innovative design crosses over all aspects of education. The American Society for Innovation Design in Education, or ASIDE, seeks to infuse curriculum with new approaches to teaching and thinking.

DAILY INSPIRATION: High School Student Creates Finger Spelling App

Now this is what I am talking about! A high school student sees a need for an effective tablet tutorial on sign language and actually builds an app.

It is a good example for our students in that it combines the practical coding knowledge with some creativity and an actual social need.

The Complete Visual Guide To Generation Z – Edudemic

See on Scoop.itipadyoupad

I was interested when I came across this detail of Generation Z which this particular infographic defines as folks who were born between 1995 and 2009. Keep reading to learn more about one of the youngest generations.

Lina Gordaneer‘s insight:

I came across this infographic last night and was intrigued. Especially about the redefined life stages- “Downager”? It sounds like a term that belongs in a YA speculative novel…

See on www.edudemic.com

Here is the actual info graphic, but I recommend you read the article if you find the image a litre, well, visually over-stimulating…

Innovative Grammar Mind Map Is Perfect For Teaching English – Edudemic

As someone who went to a francophone school well into my high school years,  I did not have an English Grammar lesson until about grade eleven. And even then it was extremely basic. In fact, I remember being in a University English class on the history of the English language and our professor being extremely appalled at how little we (it wasn’t just me- it was the whole class) about English grammar.

My grasp of the underlying structure of the language is (cough, cough) intuitive at best. Perusing the grammar mind map below, I have just now realized the depth of my ignorance.

Sigh. What a humbling way to start the day…

This grammar mind map breaks down basic English grammar into eight branches, and then breaks down each branch a bit further.

This one’s for you Mr. D!

Flipped classrooms are one of the more popular trends we’ve seen since Edudemic was created, and it is certainly one of the most long- lasting.

Here is the last presentation from our inaugural show and tell on November 6th.

Mme. Leblanc would like to me to stress that she was trying

Haiku Deck

out a new tool for her called Haiku Deck and would like you to take that into account while viewing though personally, I don’t think it is necessary- it was a fabulous presentation on the merits and challenges of QuickVoice. And as a bonus, she learned a new tool!
