[TRANSLATOR] TASK 5

Hello, I’m Anthony, this week’s translator for Frisky Hedgehogs. Our Task 5 was a throwback to our previous tasks, so I’ve selected what I consider the most important word (or words) from each one:

Task 1 – TPACK
Content knowledge: the knowledge that teachers have about their subject.
Pedagogical knowledge: knowing the processes, methodologies and psychology of teaching and learning.
Technological knowledge: the information about technology focused to the work and everyday life either for both teacher and student.

Task 2 - MAP PROJECTIONS, TREASURE HUNT, MEDIA DISTORTIONS
Media Distortion: giving false information about a topic depending on the interest of a specific mass media or person. In that information the reality is not showed as it is, but is changed to cheat the receptor into thinking something that isn’t real.

Task 3 – CREATIVE COMMON LICENSES AND PRESENTATIONS
Creative Common Licenses: is a non-profit organization founded in 2001. It is led by different professionals. Creative Common Licenses make it possible to share, use, or edit materials for free without having to worry about legal problems, as long as you follow the instructions and give proper credit when needed.

Task 4 – THE DARK SIDE OF TEXTBOOKS
Broken Market: we say the market is broken because:
1. Students (final consumers) do not choose the product.
2. The product is chosen by an educational institution.
3. The product is paid by parents of students.
The consequence is that textbooks are too expensive and their quality is bad.

That's all for this week !
Anthony
