A 1:1 iPad Menu For Guided Reading - te@chthought

A 1:1 iPad Menu For Guided Reading - te@chthought | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"Choice boards are powerful tools for providing students with both choice and direction in their work.

 

The idea, creatively shown below from teacher/blogger Monica Evon in the form of a menu, allows teachers to guide students towards certain forms of academic practice, or demonstration of specific standards. If, for example, you want students to show they understand how to calculate the area of a circle from real-life applications, you can create 8 different ways for them to show it."

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects."

Key message of this piece: Focusing on process as much as product, all as it relates to learning.

ManufacturingStories's curator insight, July 12, 6:18 AM

The Maker Movement will be a huge benefit to career preparedness in education through the implementation of Maker Clubs in K-12 and Maker Classes.  MakerSpaces in communities will serve to connect artisans of all types to education and industry.  For more on this "disruptive" movement check out this blog posting and related links. http://bit.ly/1me7ziK

Apple's Official Guide to Teaching with Apps

Apple's Official Guide to Teaching with Apps | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"This may be news to you (it was to us), but Apple has a guide for teaching with apps. Called “Using iOS Apps for Teaching & Learning,” it’s 8 pages long and really, honestly isn’t as self-embracing and superificial as you’d expect. Of course, it’s only 8 pages and acts more as an overview than the book, PD, and years of experience it actually requires to get it just right."

Free Technology for Teachers: Thinglink Edu - Your Students Can Use Thinglink Without Email Addresses, Here's How | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"Thinglink http://thinglink.com/ was a big hit in the workshop that I facilitated yesterday in Bettendorf, Iowa. Thinglink can be used to turn any static image into an interactive, multimedia image. Yesterday, we used PicMonkey and PicCollage to create collages about what a good learning environment looks like to us. After creating those collages we saved them as PNG files and uploaded them to Thinglink where we added videos, audio files, and links to articles to enhance our collages and make them interactive."

Create, Publish, Promote: An iPad Workflow For Learning - Te@chThought | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"Workflow is as much about inspiration and elegance as it is function and efficiency.

 

Ideally a workflow for learning would promote curiosity and ambition as much as it supports students in accomplishing goals, turning in work, and other procedural events. Any workflow should also be aligned with the tools of the trade–in this case the hardware and software of an iPad.

 

That’s where Create, Publish, Promote comes in–three words that clarify a basic sequence that can realize the potential of mobile technology."
