July’s (2015) Best Tweets — Part Five

'Twitter' photo (c) 2010, West McGowan - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/

Every month I make a few short lists highlighting my choices of the best resources I through (and learned from) Twitter, but didn’t necessarily include them in posts here on my blog.

I’ve already shared in earlier posts several new resources I found on Twitter — and where I gave credit to those from whom I learned about them. Those are not included again in post.

If you don’t use Twitter, you can also check-out all of my “tweets” on Twitter profile page.

Five Most Popular Posts Of The Week

    

Video: “How Google Translate Makes Signs Instantly Readable”

Earlier this week, I posted about recent updates to Google Translate (see Google Translate Announces Another Big Update Today).

I think its ability to translate text by just looking at it through your phone is akin to magic.

Here’s a new video that explains how it actually does it:

 

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Google Translate & Other Forms Of Machine Translation.

    

“Q & A Collections: Best Ways To Begin & End The School Year”

Q & A Collections: Best Ways To Begin & End The School Year is the title of my latest post at Education Week Teacher.

It contains links to all my posts from the past four years on the best ways to begin and end the school year.

Here’s an excerpt from one of them:

Send An Ed-Related Research Question To One Of The Regional Educational Laboratories – And They’ll Answer It!

resl

Are you an educator seeking good research and/or answers on an education-related issue? If you are, you can go to the national website of the Regional Educational Laboratory Program, click on your state, type the question into the form, send it, and then staff at the appropriate center will research it and send you back resources, answers, data, etc. – for free.

I sent them some questions related to Common Core and the difference between “collaboration” and “cooperation.” They answered my questions and send me some studies (not behind paywalls) that I had missed in my initial research on the topic. It took me a month to get the response, but I know a portion of that delay was because of summer vacations. I suspect their turnaround time is typically shorter.

I think it’s a great service, and I suspect a lot of educators who might try it out after reading this blog post will end up agreeing with me….
