Get in touch with your inner geek

geekrule27 Image: Geeks are sexy

A while ago I blogged about the difference between a geek and a nerd. I also blogged about the advantages of having a dual screen setup. Today I’ll offer you some choices to allow you to take advantage of the world of geeks. Gabbing geek offers a lot of current information about comic book heroes, films and other things of geek interest. It also has a very live podcast which you might like to listen to in your dead times where you are looking for something good to do. buckeyeinteractive goes through 10 fun and tech savvy sites which  are certainly good value and Geeks are Sexy brings you current and up to date geek news. Discworld reading guideIf you are a Terry Pratchett fan Boingboing, another really good geek site brings you an image of how to read Discworld.

My favourite discovery is from the buckeyeinteactive site and it’s a site called carbonmade. I haven’t linked you to the home page because it makes the site look a bit kiddie and it is not at all like that. You can use the site to build a visual e-portfolio/blog where you can showcase your images to great effect. This is something which would be very useful to students since they would be able to easily demonstrate growth and development as visual learners. The site has a really lovely gallery of the sorts of things people do with and it’s conveniently divided into subheadings. If you are at all visually oriented, it is well worth a look. There are some very impressive sites made with carbonmade.

Visual and spatial learners

This is a great example of why teachers should blog .I hope Kurtis Powers keeps blogging because already he is providing education with worthwhile insight and thought from a teacher perspective. His video makes it crystal clear as to how we can better provide for visual and spatial learners. It makes some good points so the messages are clear. He has also made an effort to learn how to make videos himself and that will help his understanding of how to scaffold that in lessons and use it to advantage. If you go to his newly created blog Education Super Powers you will find that Kurtis Powers had all the research back up and thought for why he is advocating this approach with technology. He is underpinning his pedagogical decisions with research but , because he is a teacher, he is looking at the role technology and software play in his classroom and discusses those things as well. I am wondering, since we do use technology now both at home and at school, whether we are now creating visual and spatial learners and that text based learners will diminish as time goes by.
