[LTA=Low-Threshold App/Activity etc.] An LTA is an activity or application of information technology that is “low-threshold” i.e., reliable, accessible, easy to learn, non-intimidating and incrementally low-cost in time, money, and stress.  Each LTA has easily observable benefits right away and is likely to support important long-term improvements in teaching and/or learning.    For this exchange session, we’re extending the definition of LTA to include Apps, Applications, Activities, Resources, Web Sites, ...  LTA’s need not depend on any specific information technology. We’ve invited some of our frequent presenters to identify and share some of their favorite new-ish LTAs… and we’ll encourage all who participate to share their favorites too. We expect that each presenter and participant will leave the session eager to try at least one LTA new to them NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.

“Media doesn’t inform so much as it argues,...Context is everything, & we get very little context...” nyti.ms/1QURWNR N.Lear 20150628


Respectful, rational discourse is challenged by excessive small media clips

Interview of Norman Lear & Seth MacFarlane in New York Times June 28, 2015:
"NL: America’s biggest export is excess. We are excessive about everything. And we’ve become consumers of excess rather than citizens. Media doesn’t inform so much as it argues, bumper-sticker-style. Context is everything, and we get very little context now. We just get the 'Boom!'"
...
"SM: ...the massive overflow of media — too much media — has made it harder to have a discussion. The freedom to find answers through communication is punished when things are picked apart and used for profit as sound bites."

"Norman Lear and Seth MacFarlane and Their TV Families," interview in column "Table for Three," by Philip Galanes, June 26, 2015
"A version of this article appears in print on June 28, 2015, on page ST7 of the New York edition with the headline: All in the Family Guys"
