Technology in the Hands of a Great Teacher
Huffington Post
I’ve brought a lot of different technologies into my high-school Physics classroom over the past 10 years, and the results have been nothing short of awesome.

Lara N. Madden‘s insight:

To all my great teachers…this article is what I am talking about all the time!! (Technology doesn’t teach, You do!) "Great teachers seek to thoughtfully leverage technology in their classes, capitalizing on all of the affordances that technology can provide. But let’s not let technology replace what it can’t, especially when what it can’t are the hallmarks of great teaching."

Not just about citing images (so much more to embed from NoodleTools!) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch

See on Scoop.itPedagogy & Higher Education

A Guide to Citing Images, a new infographic from our friends at NoodleTools, offers a MLA-aligned flow chart to guide researchers through a variety of image citation situations.  But it is not just about image documentation.

 

It asks learners to ask themselves a few important questions before using and documenting images that were born digital.  

 

NoodleTools labels an image born digital if: it was created in digital form, or if you do not know where the image itself is physically stored.
