Adult Learning & Teaching

The Dublin Institue of Technology (DIT) has put together some exceptional data on adult learning and teaching. These resources are available in both MS Word and PDF format.

Here's a sample of some of the topics covered:

-30 Things we Know for Sure about Adult Learning
-Are they Learning what I'm Teaching?
-Adult Learning Strategies

The DIT has lots of great information on adult learning on their website. It's well worth spending some time reading through their database of research.


Blogging Resources & Tools

Educational Bloggers Network: Learn more about blogging than you could possibly learn in a lifetime. You could get lost in this site for months.

Edublog News: Teachers are using blogs to collaborate with each other, share curriculum and ideas. This weblog, published by an Ohio teacher, is a site devoted to educator weblogs.

Biz Stone, Genius: Keeping a Professional Blog. What is a blog. Why you need one.


Gateway to the Smithsonian

Smithsonian.TV: " A guide to the latest live and archived streaming media content available for viewing from the comfort of your home. The Smithsonian hosts a wide array of performances, lectures, and other events that bring to life the ever changing exhibits found in our museums and traveling the country."

This Smithsonian portal also offers virtual tours of many of their holdings, as well as places of interest in and around Washington D.C. In addition, they have web cams set up at the National Zoo, and the museum of the American Indian.


Learning & Publishing Digital Photography

I thought these two resources work well together. Fuji provides teachers with the digital photography curriculum and resources, and if you qualify--a product donation. JPG Magazine can provide an opportunity for students to have their work published. A win-win!

Fuji Film: "Our Products for Learning program is Fuji film's way of rewarding the creativity of individual educators who understand the value of integrating imaging and information technology into everyday classroom lessons. Your class may qualify for a Fuji film product donation. Please read the Guidelines to see if your school is eligible to receive a donation."

JPG Magazine: "JPG Magazine is for people who love image making without attitude. It's about the kind of photography you get when you love the moment more than the camera. It's for photographers who, like us, have found themselves online, sharing their work, and would like to see that work in print." (via shellen.com)


Justice Learning

Justice Learning: "Justice Learning is an innovative, issue-based approach for engaging high school students in informed political discourse.

The web site uses audio from the Justice Talking radio show and articles from The New York Times Learning Network to teach students about reasoned debate and the often-conflicting values inherent in our democracy.

The web site includes articles, editorials and oral debate from the nation's finest journalists and advocates."
