Life in a Inquiry Driven, Technology-Embedded, Connected Classroom: English

Life in a Inquiry Driven, Technology-Embedded, Connected Classroom: English | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
One of the most important things we can do is teach our students how to use social media wisely, and how social media can be used for social good. In grade 11 English this semester, we've chosen to create a social media campaign to raise awareness around modern slavery. It's not enough for my students to learn about slavery, they need to do something with it, specifically "real world" projects that matter.
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

This is quite an amazing project. Have a read and watch the video. Well done Students!

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

Dynamically remove Google Form options after they have been selected by someone or reach defined limits | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
You can imagine the scenario, you’ve got a Google Form perhaps setup as a booking form and a select option for picking timeslots. As the slots fill up you’d like the option to be removed. I was surprised not to find an example of this so here is a rough sketch of some code that might do the job.

Getting Excited About Engineering with Super-Awesome Sylvia

Getting Excited About Engineering with Super-Awesome Sylvia | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
The following excerpt is from “Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Project Book (Volume 2): Super-Simple Arduino” by “Super Awesome” Sylvia Todd.

What’s an Arduino??

The Arduino is an awesome programmable prototyping platform. It’s a little computer that acts like a brain for robots, sensors, or other machines that connect to the real world. It’s pretty inexpensive, too! For less than the cost of a tank of gas, you can get yourself this little blue open-source brain board and start creating something incredible. With just a little bit of code (that you don’t even have to write), it can do almost any crazy thing you want.

Ur Blood, Brother explains the basic functions of the human heart. The video can be found on YouTube or on the Rhyme 'n Learn website. The video includes captions with the lyrics. If you want an easy-to-print version of the lyrics, visit Rhyme 'n Learn.

A New Wonderful Google Forms Cheat Sheet for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
Google Forms is one of the powerful tools you want to make sure you have in your teaching toolkit.There are different ways you can use it with your students in class. You can, for instance, use it to create quizzes, polls, questionnaires, and surveys. You can also use it to design permission forms, absence slips, classroom events forms…you name it. The great thing about Google Forms, besides being free and easy to use, is the fact that it is integrated with Google Drive which means that any form you create is automatically saved in your Drive and you can access it anywhere you go with Internet connection.

" Integrate content from myriad sources and incorporate social media for easy sharing. In doing so, you’ll make lessons more collaborative and engaging. The slide sorter makes it very easy to manage your slides. My favorite feature by far, though, is the pen tool, which allows you to add notes and annotations directly to my presentations. Also it’s the only screencasting app I’ve used that lets me do direct uploads to YouTube."

Creative Writing App Smash - Learn Moore | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ Earlier this month I decided to participate in the Thinglink App Smash Challenge, facilitated by Susan Oxnevad. The goal is to use ThingLink as a presentation tool to demonstrate how to combine the functionality of two or more apps to create, publish and share content. It was more difficult than I thought because I had a hard time narrowing down which apps I wanted to use in my submission. I finally decided on Book Creator because of its cross-curricular nature, and its ability to include various types of media. Here is the flow of the lesson: Students choose a scene maker app to create an original visual writing prompt Students upload their image to Book Creator Add original composition using the text feature Add narration by recording Publish final project as e Book or movie”
