Los recursos TIC para los docentes no faltan....lo necesario es que tengan claridad para qué lo van a utilizar con sus estudiantes.

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, September 17, 11:17 AM

321 free tools. It's an odd number, in more than one way. I cannot imagine the work to compile this list nor the work involved to determine which of these tools might be best suited for a teacher and his or her classroom. Of course, this list is only the beginning of possibilities.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, August 13, 3:16 PM

While I am now seeing less emphasis on "differentiation" and more emphasis on "personalized learning" as eduspeak, this is definitely worth reading so that you're on the same page as your teachers and admins. The library, by definition, is a differentiated space and that's a good conversation starter...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 13, 4:46 PM

The key point for me was the first one. This is an old idea which is making another comeback. With all due respect to Carol Ann Tomlinson, others i.e. Dewey before her made us aware of the need to work individually with each student.

 

It does not take anything away from Tomlinson's work and it is important to keeping it on the front burner in School.

 

@ivon_ehd1

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's comment, August 14, 4:13 PM
Agreed, Ivon. Effective teachers have always known that not all students learned or grasped the same way. Perhaps the important point is to remember this fact in our current climate of "same test, same day, same results" thinking.
