What fun to get the correct spacing for this particularly French punctuation in a reflowable eBook! PagetoScreen - Want to be part of a collaborative authored project?  Penguin is asking for you. Here we see the example of the first footnote in the chapter and the reference number in the text.
Notes: Attention to detail - for PrintFootnotesThese need to be separated from the main body of the text, and are best set with a smaller size and possibly event a different typeface and colour. We’re currently installing the beta and will be updating this post with any changes we find. Strangely, installing iOS 8.1 beta on another device brought Camera Roll and Photo Stream back. If I recall correctly the .1 versions in the last few years have been the ones that went with the iPad announcements towards the end of the year, so it makes sense.
Sharing is foundational to learning as well as teaching, as Dean articulates in his video and Dakota acknowledges. While all teachers are familiar with the huge importance of face-to-face sharing for lesson ideas and teaching tips, and many in digitally connected contexts are growing aware of the value of sites like Pinterest and TeachersPayTeachers, far too few are comfortable sharing and publishing digitally. In response to some of the specific things Dakota said in his vlog about teacher sharing, it’s important to remember and respect the issues of student privacy as well as intellectual property.
As educational leaders, we should aspire to make generous digital sharing of our lessons and our student work (with requisite media release forms always signed, as previously noted) an important part of our school culture.
Digital sharing has been and continues to be immensely transformative for me as a learner and teacher. Did you know Wes has published several eBooks and "eBook singles?" 1 of them is available free! If you're trying to listen to a podcast episode and it's not working, check this status page.
As those of us who knew Bob process this news and grieve in our own ways, in our time, here are a few photographs and wonderful memories of Bob I treasure and will keep always.
One of my favorite educational podcasts of all time has been Seedlings, hosted by Bob Sprankle, Cheryl Oakes and Alice Barr.
No list of great memories of Bob Sprankle could be complete without mentioning again the Room 208 podcast.
In 2011 I had a chance to hang out for a day with Bob in his classroom at Wells Elementary. That year Bob sponsored a periodic lunchtime opportunity for students to watch and reflect on powerful TED conference videos.
The last two days my wife and I attended and participated in the 2nd annual Miami Device Conference in Coconut Grove, Florida. First I’ll share a few thoughts about Twitter and metrics for personal sharing at Miami Device. For the past few years, I’ve used a hosted installation of Tweet Nest to archive all the tweets I share. A current search of my Tweet Nest archive for #miamidevice reveals some interesting metrics.
Next, however, I’ll highlight three audio podcasts I published last night from Miami Device as well as an informative video I recorded. Finally, before I highlight some individual tweets from Miami Device 2015 and embed my Storify archive, I’ll share the resource links from the three sessions I shared at the conference. This tweet from Jennifer Brachfeld, in response to the 2 hour Google GeoMap Workshop I shared on Thursday, was one of the most enthusiastic examples of conference feedback I’ve ever received.
There were lots of amazing folks at Miami Device, and some I’ve never or just rarely seen face-to-face.
On our food tour of Little Havana, I thought it was pretty cool we saw the upstairs office where The Bay of Bigs Invasion was planned.
At Miami Device this year I took several opportunities to advocate for the public sharing of student work in my sessions. A reflection on Miami Device 2015 would be woefully incomplete without a mention of the AMAZING food. As this fall semester has started, I’ve heard several stories about STEM classes and STEM teachers in other schools that have troubled me deeply. I’m going to teach some math lessons, and then we are going to do some hands-on science experiments. As teachers, it can be difficult for us to have a vision of learning and school-based education which extends outside our own experiences as students.
Common misperceptions about what STEM learning can and should be make me more convinced than ever that multi-day, professional development learning events like iPad Media Camp and STEMseeds PD Camp are vital. One of the reasons I’ve become a more ardent advocate and passionate supporter of STEM and STEAM learning in the past two years is because its pedagogy of learning challenges the traditional, siloed approach of in-school learning. When I hear stories about STEM teachers wanting to mainly teach students in whole group settings, rather than through collaborative, center-based activities, or STEM teachers wanting to maintain an artificial separation of content area skills through isolated rather than integrated activities, it gives my heart fuel to continue working as a change agent in teacher professional development. You see that the text alignment (left or right), is automatic depending on recto or verso achieved by the paragraph style using Towards the Spine.
The idea of any notes is that it is supplementary information and it is entirely optional that the reader even bothers to look, so setting in a style that does not distract from the flow of the reading experience is important.Footnotes are best numbered with an outdented figure, although (for technical reasons) the numbers are most often aligned to the main text block.
Apparently, you get Camera Roll back if you never activated iCloud Photo Library, although we can’t confirm that at 100%.


I can’t really give you the link in the portal either because it will require you to sign in. Few know about Open Educational Resources (OER) and related initiatives to openly license and freely distribute learning curriculum. Before digitally sharing photos or videos of students or student work, make sure both students and their parent(s) have agreed to open digital sharing and signed a media release form. Hopefully the same way we would have grieved before technology arrived to draw us even closer: By celebrating their life and remembering the good memories and experiences we had together. We met a group of his teachers from Wells Elementary there, and I had one of my first lobster rolls… definitely my first one for breakfast. I think this was the first time I had a chance to meet Bob in person, after listening to his podcasts and learning from him for four years. I loved how Bob focused on digital citizenship and preparing students to make good choices on the interactive web, in age appropriate ways. Bob always had such high expectations for what students could do and understand… and he was very focused on STUDENT VOICE. Even though we were half a continent away, in New Hampshire and Oklahoma, thanks to digital technologies we were just a phone call or a text message away.
This allows me to archive my learning personally for later review, but also helps to make connections to others during and after an event. When I want to share a specific tweet from a conference or other event, instead of taking a screenshot with Skitch and posting it to Flickr, I can simply paste the direct URL into WordPress (visual not HTML mode) and the tweet is visually rendered with live, clickable links.
As a presenter at educational technology conferences, I update the keynote topics, breakout session topics, and workshop topics I share a few times each year.
I’d love to go on a historical tour of the area that just focused on Cuba and that era of our Cold War history, which in many ways still continues. Sadly, we still see many school leaders making policies regarding the interactive web based more out of fear rather than experience or an understanding of digital citizenship. Whenever educators tweet about a session I’ve shared, it gives me a chance to follow them on Twitter. STEM was for us, and should be in every school, a very integrated, hands-on, context-rich learning environment filled with making, tinkering, building, testing, collaborating, playing, and sharing.
They both offer opportunities for teachers to be STUDENTS in immersed, blended learning environments which embody transformative pedagogies of students as collaborators, makers, content creators, curious explorers and expert learners. These stories energize me to try and model different, hands-on, truly learner-centered approaches to professional development like those I’ve helped develop via STEMseeds Camp and iPad Media Camp.
Robert Bringhurst doesn't need to bother with those little superscript numbers because the supplementary information is very much nearby for the reader.Still, tradition dictates that in some books, there are footnotes and some there are endnotes (either at the end of the chapter or the end of the book).
Especially if iOS 8.1 is the Apple Pay release, because that was one of the 2 real reasons why I upgraded. Few know about Creative Commons licensing and its huge importance for education and learning. I challenge you to embrace the ethic of open digital sharing, personally and within your own sphere of influence.
By gathering together and praying with and for loved ones who are left behind to miss their dad, husband, friend, co-worker, teacher and mentor. In 2010 our middle daughter, Sarah and I, traveled to Maine for a conference and got to hang out with the Seedlings.
We had a memorable dinner out with Marco Torres (a personal educational technology hero to us both) and also got to hang out with other amazing Maine #edtech legends like Kern Kelley. Hopefully this is a project I can continue so Bob’s digital legacy is preserved for future generations.
In February 2015, Felix and I shared the opening and closing keynotes at a day of professional learning for teachers in my hometown and high school in Manhattan, Kansas. I list and link chronologically on my Handouts wiki all my conference presentations, and update those each month.
It’s fantastic when learners get excited about the topics we explore together in a class!
So many practical, creative ideas for soliciting and obtaining more feedback from students about their learning and understanding. Thanks to Yau-Jau Ku from Argentina for amplifying this message during my session and sharing a photo. This increases the likelihood that down the road, as they share ideas, I’ll be influenced by their creativity and digital sharing generosity. Charlie is one of the smartest and kindest people I know, which is a pretty awesome combination.
In STEM class, we can and should have opportunities to similarly develop and apply our skills in science, technology, engineering and math within real world contexts. Rather than cast my hands up in dispair, I’m motivated to keep collaborating with other passionate educators who have a DIFFERENT view of student learning and classroom education. The 12 contributor videos included in the keynote area also available on this YouTube playlist, and I’m adding conference participant videos shared in response to the keynote video challenge. Most publishers will favour the numbers to begin again for each chapter, otherwise the numbers could get unweildy (superscript numbers of more than two digits could look ugly).
Keep a list of those students who do NOT have permission to share their photo or work openly on the web. I feel like I’m on a volunteer team with other educators like Dean, Amy, Alan, and MANY others spurring forward the digital learning revolution in our communities and on our planet through the power of generous, outside digital sharing.


Still lots of practical advice and wisdom in this video, even though it’s seven years old now! This short video clip from 2011 is full of practical ideas for computer lab teachers as well as smiles from Bob. I love how Tweet Nest makes not only visualizing, but also linking to these combined search queries easy. I’ll use this autoembed method in this post to highlight some of my key learning points and memorable moments from Miami Device. They recorded and edited two videos, one in the northern hemisphere and one in the southern hemisphere, so you can play both simultaneously: they play as a single video message.
Thankfully no one stood up at the wrong time and got injured by the low hanging tree branches!
That is the way of traditional school learning, but it is not the pathway for the STEM teacher and the STEM student.
We need to simultaneously recognize, however, that we need to all question WHY we are learning within traditional structures and schedules. Let's face it, book design and usability does not often win-out over commercial considerations. I’ve literally spent HOURS virtually with Bob, Cheryl and Alice, learning on the podcast.
Just incredible, and one of my favorite STEM Curiosity Links from last year I shared with my 4th and 5th grade students. Where footnotes are long, they can be split across more than one page, although this will compromise the usability somewhat.EndnotesNotes are often placed at the end of the chapter or even at the end of the book (before the index). Misty Williams’ AP Biology website in Yukon Public Schools in Oklahoma is another example. Bob has been in a dark valley of pain and suffering for the past ten years, but tonight he is free of pain. Many thanks to Felix Jacomino for putting together another fantastic two day learning event! Felix is a persuasive and gifted advocate for connected learning, which we all need in our schools and communities. My personal Tweet Nest archive is a key place where I search with and use these breadcrumbs, which are often hashtags like #miamidevice.
They went to STEM class, however, because they could succeed in collaborative environments which emphasized hands-on learning. Lots of space for the text to breath.How I dislike some books that give me less than a centimetre of margin. This approach means that the reader will need to 'hunt down' the note referred to in the text.
In 2016 we’re still just at the dawn of the digital sharing revolution in education and our society more generally. In this post, I’ll share some highlights from the conference as well as some of the media recordings (audio podcasts and a video) I recorded and shared, which might be beneficial for you if you didn’t get to attend this year! This usually means that the endnotes will be sectioned by chapter or section.The advantage of endnotes is that the page composition in the vertical plane is not compromised for the sake of the note space. I also spoke on the phone tonight with Eric Langhorst, who never met Bob in person, but feels like he knew him intimately because of all the podcasts he published over the years.
Ridiculous as this seems, we have seen books with footnotes that take more page space than the main text itself!Sidenotes (sometimes called Margin Notes)Clearly the page layout needs to provide the space in the margins for this to be an option. In this we can set the way the references are displayed in the text (superscript etc), and how the footnotes appear at the bottom of the page. We need a paragraph style set up for the display of the footnotes themeselves and we can (optionally), use a character style for the reference figure in the text.As you can see from the first example spread the footnote list figure is aligned to the left edge of the text box.
You will often see this in the books on your shelves, however, a more attractive arrangement is to 'outdent' these listed figures so that the footnotes are are aligned to the text and the figures are offset from this text box.InDesign does not provide the means to set footnotes outside the text box, so we need to plan for this by indenting all of the text inside the text box by an amount that we then remove from the left margins.
You will see from the image provided here that we are using guides to make sure that these items align. The one that I use here is called 'convert footnotes to (dynamic) endnotes' – meaning that the numbering will change if further notes are added.As always when using scripts to change content, save your work first! Scripts will often run through a long sequence of actions; you can always use 'revert' (from the file menu), to get back to the previous. You will see from the image here that the endnotes have their own page(s) with a heading that matches other heading styles. Using these we can control the width and position as the footnotes are converted to side notes.
How do I get these back?Reply Pat Marsden saysDecember 21, 2015 at 6:19 AM Has something been changed in IBooks? Taking in the whole page at once, not reading word by word or line by line neither the two column set up or the scrolling version works for me. IT would-be nicer of i also van change THE collor for example Orange On black or black On Orange.Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
