Welcome to the Catalogue of Digitized Medieval Manuscripts. This site was designed to enable users to find fully digitized manuscripts currently available on the web. You can use the search box to quickly search on specific terms, or use the "Search Manuscripts" link to search on particular fields, such as date, or provenance information. You can also browse the Catalogue by the Location of an archive or library, the shelfmark of an item, by the author of a text (where that information is available), or by the language of a text (again, where available).

Building examples of mobile apps for use in education including sciences. I just continue to see this as an area of GROWTH in the near future. Horizon Reports has this as one of the biggest growth areas in the next 2-3 years. We need to position our understanding for implications abroad.
This wiki collects information about tools and resources that can help scholars (particularly in the humanities and social sciences) conduct research more efficiently or creatively. Whether you need software to help you manage citations, author a multimedia work, or analyze texts, Digital Research Tools will help you find what you're looking for.
Not all the software is free, but it does provide an extensive list of software for use.
Ed.voicethread Network. This is a great little video (oh wait, it's a voicethread) explaining how the educator voicethread is designed. The network has built-in safety measures, like mandatory comment moderation and class urls making it easier to keep students out of trouble areas.
(The recommendations of this report) are consistent with recommendations on adolescent literacy that have been made recently by the National Governors Association’s Center for Best Practices, said Ilene Berman, a program director for that center. “We, too, recommend that states build support for a state focus on adolescent literacy,” she said. “We encourage states to write and implement literacy plans.”
This article just offers more justification for the project we are designing. Notice the mention of data from 5th grade thru 8th grade. I still think we need to look at how we inform high school teachers to teach/support rigorous content area reading.
Not every teacher, he said, needs to be a reading specialist. But all teachers do need to be trained, he added, in how to recognize reading deficits, and schools need to have strategies to respond to them
The QUERI Process 1. Identify high-risk/high-volume diseases/problems. 2. Identify best practices. 3. Define existing practice patterns and outcomes across Veterans Health Administration and current variation from best practices. 4. Identify and implement interventions (including performance criteria) to promote best practices. 5. Document that best practices improve outcomes. 6. Document that outcomes are associated with improved health-related quality of life.
NIce slideshare about digital storytelling and the use of voicethread to accomplish that. Slide 2 quote: "In educationeze, it's Multimodal Writing.While any use of a computer to help present a story could be called digital storytelling, it's now a term of art for a presentation with a scripted voice-over narration which is illustrated by a series of mostly still images, sometimes with brief video clips, often with a musical background added."A little not taking oneself too seriously with what I think is a good description of digital storytelling.
New technologies, and especially social computing, provide new opportunities for education and training, as they enhance learning and teaching, and facilitate collaboration, innovation and creativity for individuals and organizations. The benefits of deploying social computing and ICT for learning depend on the learning approach used, emphasizing the role and the skills of the teacher and the need for supportive settings for both learners and teachers.
Story Top is a good web-based tool for creating digital stories and comics. Story Top features an easy-to-use drag and drop tool for creating your story.

When your story is complete you can save it in your Story Top account or send it to friend. You can also share your story with a group of other Story Top users.
Pixton is a comic creation tool that has been passed around the education blog-o-sphere quite a bit lately. Pixton has a drag and drop interface which allows anyone regardless of artistic ability to create comics. Recently Pixton introduced Pixton for Schools which allows teachers to create private rooms in which only their students can create and share comics. To learn more about Pixton, watch this short video.
Some practical examples of how teachers teach problem solving in Singapore. Not a comprehensive set of directions, but does contain some of the problems you might choose and some questions to ask. Worth a read
Great set of tools available online for free. I played with several and really like the ease of use, the nice conceptual nature of them (i.e. archimedi's bathtub is a great example of a graph that could be used to help students understand change).
How do instruction, curriculum, and professional development influence middle grades students’ algebra learning? Project 2061, in collaboration with the University of Delaware and Texas A&M University, investigated this question as part of an Interagency Education Research Initiative (IERI) project to study the impact of professional development and curriculum materials on instruction and student achievement for specific learning goals in middle school mathematics.
Another online graphing utility. Not as rigorous as Swivel, but offers a way of creating interesting venn diagrams. Great tool for teaching how to label and provide unit data so people can read the graph most effectively.
