As a global partner of Bett, the UK show is always a special occasion for all of us at Microsoft in Education. As well as being a fantastic opportunity to meet with education leaders, teachers, support staff and learners of all ages, we are fortunate to be joined each year by representatives from many of the institutions we work with, who kindly give up their time to share their stories.

Cara Memblokir FB Sendiri

Siapa sih yang tidak tahu Facebook di zaman ini? Semua pasti tahu tentang media social raksasa ini. Facebook mempunyai jumlah pengguna terbanyak dari media social lain. Dari usia anak SD sampai yang sudah punya cucu atau cicit, pasti tidak ketinggalan untuk menjadi pengguna facebook.  Tak heran jika perusahaan facebook ini meraup untung besar dalam bisnis periklanannya.

Namun di sisi lain, tidak sedikit orang yang ingin mencari cara memblokir FB sendiri. Kebanyakan mereka khawatir tentang privasinya. Ada juga yang ingin bikin akun baru lagi dan memblokir yang lama.… Visit the author's original post

Driven: Irish Inventors Aim to Make the Roads Safe – James McNamara, Ireland

To celebrate five years of Daily Edventures, we’re sharing some of our favorite posts. This Daily Edventure was originally published on March 16, 2012.

They call it “Project Hermes” after the Greek god who protects travelers. They believe their technology will help reduce road traffic accidents, and they’re not the only ones: Team Hermes – James McNamara, Aine Conaghan, Matthew Padden and Calum Cawley – won the top prize in software development at the Global Imagine Cup in New York. Team Hermes created a device that plugs into any car made since 2000 to track the driver’s behavior by monitoring things like speed, GPS location, RPM and acceleration, then uploads that information to the cloud.… Visit the author's original post

Tao Te King par Lao-tseu, Stephen Mitchell (trad.) — Chronique


Notre chronique

Le Tao Te King, dao de jing dans la phonétique originale, est en réalité appelé tout simplement par les Chinois, le Lao Tseu, du nom de son auteur qui vécut quelques six siècles avant notre ère. Les plus anciens textes connus, tous fragmentaires, ont été découverts récemment dans des tombes, en 1973 à Tchang-Cha, et en 1993 à Guodian. Cette nouvelle édition, fidèle par sa haute tenue à la collection, présente, outre une préface passionnante, une traduction talentueuse. En effet, si l’on compare cette version à celle (qui a cependant le mérite d’être issue directement du chinois) faite en 1979 par François Houang, on ne peut qu’être subjugué par la beauté et la qualité poétique des traductions de Stephen Mitchell et de Benoît Labayle.… Visit the author's original post

Ninfea

In questo periodo ci siamo occupati di salvaguardia ambientale.

I miei alunni hanno lavorato in gruppo per raccogliere le informazioni relative all'inquinamento dell'ambiente al fine di individuare le cause e le possibili soluzioni. Le schede prodotte sono state tradotte in lingua inglese per condividerle con i nostri amici virtuali.

Il secondo step ci vedrà impegnati nella selezione delle immagini per la costruzione di una mostra fotografica virtuale.

Non possiamo pensare di fermare il progresso ma contribuire in prima persona a innescare comportamenti responsabili.

Bhagavad-Gita de Stephen Mitchell, traduction : Aurélien Clause. Chronique.



Notre chronique
D’abord, un très bel objet éditorial, illustré d’images vectorielles, relié en cahiers, fait pour durer, comme son texte, et pourtant, il y a de cela quelques années, je dois avouer que nous avions essayé de l’aborder dans une version en prose, et que nous avions renoncé.
Cette fois, la forme poétique adoptée, comme dans la version originale, restitue toute sa force à l’ouvrage et en rend l’accès plus aisé.

Why Australia’s private schools need automation

Australia’s independent schools face more competition than ever before. Enrolment numbers can’t keep up with demand from parents, and expectations of high academic and co-curricular results put the pressure squarely on teachers like never before. Private school boards are doing their best to optimise operations and attract top teachers – but is there more to...… Visit the author's original post

Digital classrooms aren’t a distraction. Here’s why.

Many people assume that devices and technology distract students and negatively affect how teachers run their lessons. That’s not the case when implementation is done purposefully, with learning tools that support existing structures in the classroom. In other words, tech doesn’t replace the teacher, but enhances their capabilities in teaching and administration. One of the...… Visit the author's original post

Forging stronger ties with students: TAFE Queensland South West revamps its CRM system

The success of an educational institution today is measured not only by the quality of its courses. League tables that account for ‘overall student experience’ often factor student support and engagement into their rankings. In fact, a 2016 Student Experience Survey funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training reveals that only 61%...… Visit the author's original post

Tomáš Milička still remembers the moment he realized he could be a good educator.

“It started when one of my students who was working with Microsoft told me I should join the Microsoft Innovative Educators program,” Milička explains. “At first, I thought I couldn’t do that, and that I had no time and no abilities for such things. But it caught my attention, and I started to look at the materials at the Microsoft Educator Community portal.… Visit the author's original post

Accessibility workshop for teachers now available

"As a special education teacher, I am constantly on the hunt for technology and tools that give students with disabilities an environment that is personalised, differentiated and yet as close to their peers’ experience as possible… With Windows 10 and Office 365, I have been able to find and use many of the accommodations that I have been looking for making consumption of materials, content creation, collaboration and organisation possible for students using the same technology and tools as their peers.” – Robin Lowell, Special Education, Science and Mathematics teacher

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is much more than just putting devices in the hands of our students and expecting them to know how to be 21st century learners,” says MIE Expert Simon Harper. “We must create a learning environment where students use technology ubiquitously to solve real-world problems that link to communities locally and globally.”

Pour la sortie en version brochée de "La musique adoucit les mœurs" — Chronique de Sylvie Guérin


Sur Amazon.

Dans "la musique adoucit les mœurs", il y a "musique".
Ça, on voit bien, mélomanes, musiciens, groupes, choristes, professionnels ou amateurs, tous passionnés, tissent la partition cohérente de cet... ensemble... savamment... orchestré...

Il y a "mœurs". Là encore, on suit, car les auteurs nous installent dans des univers qu'ils nous rendent familiers, rassurants dans leur routine parfaitement décrite et quasi-documentaire. De ces milieux prévisibles et tranquilles, quel mal pourrait surgir ?

Pourtant une menace délicate, presque impalpable, s'insinue et instille la possibilité d'un dérapage.
