Mind mapping

Je viens de recevoir un petit mot d'une élève qui est désormais dans le supérieur et qui ne se souvenait pas du site que nous avions utilisé pour faire des mind maps.
Une excellente opportunité d'écrire un petit billet sur le sujet !
Tout d'abord : qu'est-ce que le mind mapping ? Réponse ici sur le site de l'Académie de Martinique !
Mais quel site choisir ?
Mon outil préféré est Popplet qui permet de créer des mind maps extrêmement facilement et rapidement !… Visit the author's original post

Apprendre et Enseigner ! Padlet (l’un de mes outils numériques préférés) etc…

Bonjour à tous !

Mes outils préférés sont simples d'utilisation pour que mes élèves puissent les prendre en main très vite et qu'ils les utilisent à leur tour (qu'ils créent leurs Padlets par exemple :).
Une amie Facebook vient de me demander de l'aide à ce sujet donc je profite d'en faire un petit billet !

Pour commencer j'ai choisi 3 tutoriels en ligne :

It Starts With You…You Are The Change – Joe Lemaron, Africa

Réviser son anglais

Bonjour à tous !
Je fais de la veille numérique, en particulier pour mes élèves ici.
Et comme les liens sont très nombreux, pour que ce ne soit pas trop écrasant ("overwhelming") je leur propose ce que j'appelle un "jeu"...
Chacun doit explorer ce scoop it et choisir un site qui le motive puis le présenter à la classe. S'ils le souhaitent, ils peuvent faire cette activité par 2. (pour les plus timides)
Les avantages sont nombreux !
- les élèves ont un travail (plutôt "ludique" pour la 2nde séance de cours),
- ils ont exploré le scoop it,
- en particulier un site et l'ont testé,
- et vont en parler en classe (oral + méthodologie de la présentation + échanges fructueux car ils découvrent 35 sites petit à petit !).… Visit the author's original post

At first glance it’s pretty obvious: Colegio Fontán is different. No classrooms.
No teachers. No blackboards. No exams. Technology supports everything they do.

Fontán’s parents – both educators – brought their unique brand of education to Colombia from Spain 54 years ago.… Visit the author's original post

Disruptive Technologies – What’s Now and Next for Education at EduTech Australia 2017

Just a few minutes ago, I finished speaking at the EduTech Conference in Sydney about the impact of disruptive technologies on education. Months ago, I’d agreed to talk in a phone call with a colleague, and because I was overseas travelling at the time, they had provided the conference organisers with a synopsis that was fairly brief and seemed to cover every emerging technology you could imagine:

Disruptive Technologies – What’s Now and Next for Education at EduTech Australia 2017

“With the advent of powerful cloud computing and changing environments, how will emerging and future technologies impact on school based IT, teaching, learning and even buildings and learning spaces?

How Pilbara Group is helping Australian universities turn knowledge into insight

Guest blog post from Lea Patterson, President & CEO, Pilbara

Students in 2017 - 2 of these are likely to leave by 2018

In any society, the availability of high-quality, affordable education not only determines the prosperity of that country’s knowledge economy, but also its future viability as a key player in our digital world.

This is one of the key reasons why I’ve always been of the belief that everyone, regardless of geography, social or economic status, is entitled to a good education.

Bringing this vision to life is what drives the work we do at Pilbara – an Australian-based global consultancy and software company working with universities and colleges to ensure their courses and programs are sustainable and accessible to all.… Visit the author's original post

Driving decisions through data in Australia’s Higher Education sector

And that one-in-three university students fail to complete the course they enrolled in within six years of beginning it?

Both trends are impacting Australia’s current higher education sector, and have the potential to adversely impact our country’s future economic prosperity considering fewer skilled graduates are entering the workforce.… Visit the author's original post

What is poetry to you?
