muse: n. a source of inspiration

Links You’ll Love – 2/17/12

Explainer.net is a project of NYU’s School of Journalism designed to help people to become better explainers (the explainer is “a genre in journalism that provides the essential background knowledge necessary to follow events in the news,” per the website). It often features great information for those of us who explain lots and lots of things. Check out their feature on eight tools for effective explanation at http://explainer.net/2010/11/8-explanation-tools/. How many do you use? How about your students? I’d love to see an activity where each student chooses one modality.

I know I’ve mentioned Evernote before – check out their newly-designed website for educators at http://www.evernote.com/about/schools/resources/topics/one_to_one/. There are some case studies, a PDF library with information on how people are using Evernote in their classrooms, a discussion forum and more. Do take a moment to check it out!
