Peter Vogel24,368ICT / Ed Tech CircleIt's a long weekend here in Canada (we celebrate Thanksgiving well ahead of our neighbours to the south). Here is a circle of people with a passion for technology in education and who have shared that enthusiasm here on Google+. And that makes for an ideal group to share their energy with others perhaps just starting to explore the rich environment of G+. Consider this a Thanksgiving gift from Canada. 2012-10-07 00:18:36420315CC G+
Tim Calvin1,917It's been a while since I shared this, so I thought I'd re-post. G+ only lets you share up to 500 people in a circle, so even though this has 1272 people in it, you'll only get 500. ONLY.2012-08-24 13:09:10500200CC G+

Most of us educators post and have an interest in a very wide variety of subjects such as philosophy, psychology, sociology. media, art, photography science, technology etc. For this reason I’m trying to curate and collate the best of education posts on +24-7tutorials.com ,my education news page.

If you’re posting great education stories of general interest, can you post public and tag +24-7tutorials.com ? (you’ll need to add the page to circles so I can share)2012-04-10 20:34:0838227815CC G+
Peter Vogel17,847Tech Ed CircleI am sharing the circle below for those who are looking for educators and those who actively write about education with an emphasis on information and communications technologies (let's call it tech ed for short). Just prior to posting this I used the Uncircle+ Chrome extension to comb the circle for inactive G+ accounts, resulting in the removal of around 60 from an initial set of 470. However, it appears that Uncircle+ is not completely reliable. At least one account remains that is apparently non-existent and a few accounts remain that were inactive during the period I specified. I wanted Uncircle+ to identify accounts with no activity since January 1.2012-04-09 01:23:424056313CC G+

I like +Kate Nowak's style here. I found her presentation to be interesting, engaging, and useful, and this is also true of this blog post she has written describing her presentation. I hope that the professional development my colleagues and I do with teachers meets some of the criteria she laid out in her presentation for effective professional development, but I think we should have a high bar for our professional learning, otherwise we are just wasting a whole lot of time.

Dear Stats-Knowledgeable People:
I'm going to start this thread in the interest of figuring out what is meant by some of the HS-S-IC standards in the Common Core. I have some initial questions, to which I am sure I will have follow-up questions. And making it quasi-public might help others who are struggling with the same things. Please feel free to tag more people.

Q1: S.IC.2 says, “Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a given data-generating process.” I get what this means, but I don’t get how you would decide it was consistent. How consistent is consistent? Is there some official metric of consistency? Can you suggested pertinent vocabulary words I could look up in a stats textbook?

I look forward to a day when coming out as gay is not seen as an act of bravery in our too-harsh world, but just something you do, probably in your teens, as casually as announcing that you are in love or have an upcoming date. I applaud Ellen for her bravery, but I wish it was not necessary.

Hi all,

I'm a formative assessment specialist for New Visions for Public Schools in NYC. I'm part of the Accessing Algebra through Inquiry Project, which has as one of its goals, that teachers will use "rich math tasks" among some other goals. Our objective: change how mathematics is taught in the 27 schools with which we work.

Prior to this, I worked as a learning specialist for a small independent school in Vancouver.

As you can no doubt gather from the two roles I have been involved with, I am very interested in learning. I write about what I am learning about learning, among other topics, here: http://davidwees.com

I'm looking forward to being part of this community.

Has anyone started learning to code recently? Would you like to share what you've accomplished so far? Maybe ask for some help to keep going?

I'm also wondering if a series of coding challenges might help inspire people to get started learning.

Aside from all of the reasons given below, which mostly ring true for me as well, my original reason for blogging (professionally) was to start building an online portfolio of my work so as to make finding a job in the international circuit easier. I thought that if I could send people to my website and they could see samples of work that I had done, it could help me get a job.

As it turns out, for my current position, this happens to be absolutely true. My boss has repeatedly pointed out that my website is part of the reason they hired me.

Interestingly enough, although I do some work maintaining my website as a portfolio, this is no longer my primary reason for blogging. Now my most important reason for blogging is because I have ideas, and writing down these ideas gets them out of my head.

This is a very useful reference website built by the Mozilla foundation:

Here is a suggestion for people interested in learning programming, and just getting started. Learn JavaScript.

1. Much of the syntax is at least partially transferable to many other languages.
2. You can get started with what you have on your computer now. No compiler, no extra software necessary (although a text editor with code highlighting is super useful).
3. You can put your projects online and share them with other people fairly easily.
4. It supports object based programming. You don't know what this is yet, but trust me, it's useful.
5. It is used all over the place; like Google Apps Scripting, for example.
6. There several website to help you get started, most of which are online.
7. There are literally hundreds of "how to" books on learning to program in JavaScript.

I'm wondering how many teachers know how to code well enough to produce an app their students can use.

Maybe we should run some sort of open course for people interested in learning how to code, but who want some peer support in the process?

I've not received any comments on this post, and I'm hoping I can get some feedback, as I intend to share these big ideas in a few conference sessions in the coming months.

Are there any other "powerful ideas of math" that you would add to my list? Could some of the ideas listed be removed or combined?

Working on a meta-presentation on "creating effective presentations." It's intended to be short and to the point as there are obviously more comprehensive resources out there.

Can you give me feedback on it?

Going to start in 20 minutes. #mathchat #edchat

In particular, I'd like to discuss the aims of the course description for this course (see the article for more), which are quoted below:

"While teachers of mathematics say they want the young people in our secondary schools to understand the nature of proof, that should not be and probably is not their total concern. What these teachers really want is not only that these young people should understand the nature of proof but that their way of life should show that they understand it. Of what value is it for a pupil to understand thoroughly what a proof means if it does not clarify his thinking and make him more "critical of new ideas presented"? The real value of this sort of training to any... mehr »

There are some reduced price tickets for BC public school teachers still left (they are $125 cheaper than the full rate). Send me a private message if you are interested in attending the conference with one of these reduced rate tickets and I can give you the registration code for it.

I think +Dan Meyer has nailed it with this awesome video he created called "Hollywood Hates Math." It really speaks to how our culture views mathematics.

There has been a lot written about this issue, and many attempts to counteract it. Is this something we are always going to have to face as a society? Or can anyone imagine a future where mathematics is not reviled by 90% of the population? If so, how do we get to this utopia?

What topics from mathematics do you think should be present in the k-12 curriculum (at least as an option) which are not currently present?

I'd like to see game theory and graph theory added to the curriculum (and whatever the necessary pre-requisites are, so for certain matrices). Not sure exactly what I would delete.
