leave a comment »

Published on Jan 10, 2013 Richard Culatta identifies 3 major challenges with our current approach to education and suggests a shift to personalized learning. He talks about closing the digital divide between those who can leverage technology and those who simply use technology to digitize the status quo. A very interesting talk. http://youtu.be/Z0uAuonMXrg

Math Rap

Math Rap

A few months ago I shared a website that deals with music called Flocabulary. It used hip-hop to cover vocabulary, language arts, social studies, science and math. Here is a new site that deals with rap for math and science. This site was created by Joe Ocando. Joe is a math and science teacher at a community college in New York. He uses word associations so that a term or fact is easier to recall later.  Check it out at http://rhymenlearn.com/math-rap/integers/.

Welcome back Faculty! Today I have something a little fun for everyone. Doug Aamoth is a Techland editor and a very funny guy. He has produced a series of quick videos on iPad and iPhones that are informative as well as fun.

In this video he demonstrates a number of iPad tips you may or may not be familiar with, but he does it in a wonderfully funny way. He covers everything from quick scroll to multi-finger screen gestures, and keyboard shortcuts.

You may want to follow him on Twitter at @daamoth. You can check out this video and many more at http://techland.time.com/2012/07/09/video-simple-ipad-tips-and-tricks/
