Kuers introduces What If Learning dot com

 

Excerpt:

The site presents teaching examples—for both elementary and secondary classrooms—from a range of subjects: art, cooking, dance, technology, drama, English, environment, geography, history, technology, math, foreign/second language, music, physical education, health, Bible class and science. (There are also categories titled “teacher,” “tests” and “topics.”)

Each example leads off with a question: “What if a grammar lesson challenged selfishness?” “What if success in math depended upon forgiveness?” “What if history could inspire students to love their city?” The site also provides tabs labeled “The Approach,” “Training,” “Big Picture,” and “Information,” where teachers can learn how to apply what they’ve learned in their classrooms.

“The website helps teachers ask key questions and make strategic decisions, not only about what to teach but about how to teach,” said Matt Walhout, Calvin’s dean for research and scholarship. “It relates specific topics like language, history, and math to the overarching Christian principles of faith, hope, and love.”

8 fantastic sites to help keep your kids creative — from mylifescoop.com by Pinar Noorata

Excerpt:

The imagination of a child is like no other and if it is fed and nurtured from the beginning, the results could be extraordinarily positive. It’s crucial to keep children’s minds active in their formative years, since that’s when they do most of their learning and retain the most information. It’s also important to encourage a child’s sense of creativity, giving them the freedom to grow and expand their minds. In the past, parents worried about their kids watching too much brainless television and sought to find educational programming they could learn from. Today, the problem is pretty much the same, though the media has changed. Kids are constantly on the computer, surfing the web, but what are they looking at? Are they being productive or simply staring at a screen that inspires nothing out of them? Have no fear because we’ve got a list of some fantastic websites that can put you parents at ease, knowing your child is using their minds and being creative all while they are visually stimulated and entertained.

Top 100 Schools for Animation, Gaming, and Design - May 2012

 

Excerpt:

The animation education industy has never been so competitive, with schools competing for students and students competing for a small number of available industry jobs. The job rate and student employability has dropped to the lowest in years, so a top-notch animation education has never been so critical.

All this has made choosing the right animation school extremely difficult. To help students navigate through the world of animation schools, we’ve put together the Top 100 most highly-regarded and sought after animation schools on the planet. This list of the Top 100 Schools in Animation, Gaming and Design was compiled via a mixture of school reviews, industry-reviewed lists like the Princeton Review, and via a survey of the animation industry professionals and recruiters from companies like Pixar, J.J. Sedelmaier and DreamWorks who were featured in our Interview Series. And without further ado, here are your Top 100 Schools in Animation, Gaming and Design:
