Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 4, 7:10 PM

Check out three versions of Bloom's Taxonomy in this visualization. It includes the original Bloom's, the revised Bloom's, and adds on the Digital Bloom's, which provides a range of suggestions as to how students may demonstrate each level. This is another visual that you may want to share with other teachers in your school.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, April 5, 5:21 PM

I love the clarity of the digital verbs! I think the specific content of the "doing" might allow for a bit of repositioning in the  chart, but it's certainly a great starting point in analyzing the tasks and output of a lesson.

Lee Hall's curator insight, April 7, 2:25 PM

It is interesting to see all of Bloom's side by side.

Teaching Adolescents How to Evaluate the Quality of Online Information

Teaching Adolescents How to Evaluate the Quality of Online Information | 21st Century learningskills | Scoop.it
An essential part of online research is the ability to critically evaluate information. This includes the ability to read and evaluate its level of accuracy, reliability and bias. When we recently as

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 7, 7:24 PM

Yet research tells us that middle schoolers:

* "are more concerned with content relevance than with credibility."

*  "rarely attend to source features such as author, venue or publication type to evaluate reliability and author perspective.

* "their judgments are often vague, superficial and lack reasoned justification."

What should we do?

1. Teach the Dimensions of Critical Thinking - Relevance, Accuracy, Bias/Perspective and Reliabilty

2. Model and Practice - Use demonstration lessons to focus on the four dimensions above

3. Prompting - Provide written prompts to help guide students; have them cross-check claims through more than one source

4. Help them become healthy skeptics

More information on these factors may be found in the post.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | 21st Century learningskills | Scoop.it

Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

twitter alone might not be sufficient, as we (or most of us) not 'always online', we have to do other things. combining twitter with a mechanism to comb through the # and compile personalized feed, would be useful.

Catherine Smyth's comment, April 23, 2013 9:20 PM
I'm a fledgling tweeter but love the way Twitter ignites discussion and ideas within a professional community.

Preparing For An EdTech Summer, You May Need This EdTech Buyers Guide [Infographic] | TechFaster | 21st Century learningskills | Scoop.it
This year while the kids are enjoying a summer off, EdTech advisors, educational IT specialists, teachers, administrators and EdTech buyers across the country are going to be busy with a handful of good EdTech conferences. Atlanta will play host to the largest EdTech conference in the US, ISTE. Texas will play host to the TCEA Tots and Technology conference, and several other regional tech events are planned. Educational Technology or EdTech is one of the fastest growing segments of the technology space. From devices in classrooms to smart boards, to curriculum managers, online curriculum platforms, mobile apps for education, collaborative platforms for students, Learning Management Systems and everything else in the sun, has made the EdTech space tricky to navigate. The folks at Mindshare Learning have prepared an amazing infographic with some important tips for those people responsible for making purchases in the EdTech space. These purchases will directly impact, teachers, administrators, students and parents and have to be carefully thought out and managed. Educational technology can be overwhelming. EdTech purchasers want to get the most for the students that they possibly can but are often stricken with very limited budgets and in some cases, parent fundraising needs to even purchase digital downloads. An EdTech conference can be like a kid in a candy store, but everything in the conference is actually good for kids. In addition to doing research across the web and following Techfaster’s EdTech category, the tips provided below from Mindshare are a great starting point. Oh and if by chance you’re one of those EdTech companies trying to reach millions of educational influencers during the approaching EdTech conference season you may want to check this out.   Infographic Source

* Hohli Online Chart Builders - allows you to create "a variety of charts for online display"

* Infogr.am - " an online tool for creating interactive charts and graphs to use in interactive infographics"

The Smithsonian magazine recently dipped into David Rumsey's collection of over 150,000 maps to find some of the best representations of American cities over the past couple hundred years.
