“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” –Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Learning by doing is by no means a new concept, but experiential learning theory takes it a step further by encouraging students to reflect on what they’ve done...

Reflecting on 3D Modeling and Game Design workshop | http://bit.ly/28IKLb3
In this post, I wanted to share a few insights and ideas for the benefit of other teachers. In this last workshop, I wanted to give the students the ability to play with 3D scanning. During our workshop, we committed ourselves to build parts of a small game world.

Use this widget to visualize which voice levels are appropriate for different scenarios throughout the school day. You can show widgets on one page or "pin" them to the board so that the'll show up on every page in your lesson plan. This is a very handy classroom management tool. There are many more widgets like this, including timers, dice, calculator, rulers and more.

About this community

The EdTech Google+ community is a place where educators, technologists, students, researchers, connoisseurs and enthusiasts can discuss the multifaceted role of technology in education. As an industry leading resource for EdTech related communications, technologies, practices, research and methodology, we hope this space is a collaborative and open resource for the world to share their stories, research and findings in educational technology. As of late, the community has sustained significant growth, and is expected to continue. For that reason, we aim to revitalize the submission process to encourage a more easily navigated and rewarding experience for users. Ultimately, your posts and submissions should help contribute to the intellectual growth of this community which represents a larger movement. We have carefully researched what makes a community succeed, what makes them thrive, and what makes them fail. We want you to see this community as a place where you can grow, converse, question and laugh about things that matter to you and ideas that will move our world forward. We've put together an Open Community Constitution (OCC) to guide you when contributing, posting, sharing and interacting with the community. This OCC is a living document meant to guide you when posting meaningful, purposeful content that contributes to the community. Expectations of a post: 1. Post must be related to role of technology and how it relates to education, classrooms, pedagogy, instruction and learning. 2. Does not solely promote a product, individual or institution with no benefit to the entire community 3. Post must have relevant introductory text related to the post, link, photo or video 4. Posts and updates should be in the best interests of education technology leadership, research both academic and commercial 5. Above all, make it fun and keep it classy. - Your EdTech Moderators Adopted: September 9, 2013

It began as just another photo sharing startup founded by a Facebook exec. It ended up in 200,000 classrooms from kindergarten to 12th grade in 25,000 schools across 100 countries. All because of one truism: When a student’s audience is the world, they want their work to be good. When their audience is only their teacher, they just want it to be good enough.

Why are Unprotected Endpoints such a Hot Issue Right Now?

If your company is like most, you have a whole lot of data to store; some sensitive, some not so much. Most of that data is kept on a server, and therefore relatively easy to protect–IF, that is, it never moves. But our world is far too mobile and data WAY too portable today to keep information stored in one place.

Copies of that data live wherever that data is actually used, whether on a PC, a notebook, or even a tablet or smartphone (i.e., your endpoints). While companies customarily spend a great deal of resources implementing safeguards at the server level, many of the devices where that same data actually exists remain unprotected. This leaves the door open to a whirlwind of liability when dealing with sensitive information; it’s a blind spot that companies can no longer afford to ignore.

The Importance of Encrypting Your Endpoints Today Cannot be Understated!
