Teaching with Technology: Google Moderator: Great Discussion Board Tool

Teaching with Technology: Google Moderator: Great Discussion Board Tool | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

You know I LOVE Edmodo. However, there are actually a few aspects I don't really like. For example, when my students are taking part in a "discussion board," I want them to respond directly to another students' post. On Edmodo, students can't do this. They can, however, respond to another student within the discussion thread, but must begin their point with "I agree with Student A," or "Student A believes...while I believe..." This works, but it's messy and disorganized. I think responding directly to another student is EXTREMELY beneficial and could stimulate even more discussion. - See more at: http://www.usingeducationaltechnology.com/2014/03/google-moderator-great-discussion-board.html#sthash.pBiLX145.dpuf

Trigonometric Temple: Grade 9 right triangles - Lesson Plans & Resources - Share My Lesson | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it
"You were out exploring the jungles of Central America when you came across a temple in a clearing. There is no clear step system to climb to the top, but you want to study the properties of the temple. You use a tape measure to measure out a distance from the bottom center of the temple to a distance away from the structure. You also have in your possession a protractor to measure the angle between the ground and the top of the temple"

Planning For Critical Thinking: A 5-Step Model

Planning For Critical Thinking: A 5-Step Model | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Like anything else that you’d like to see happen in your classroom, promoting critical thinking skills is a matter of planning and priority.


While teachers are often admonished to push students towards higher-level thinking activities, beyond Bloom’s Taxonomy (or one of TeachThought’s own learning taxonomies), there are precious few models and frameworks that are accessible, comprehensive, or universal enough to be used on a daily basis.


In was in that light that we found the above model by Duran, Limbach, and Waugh (2006) useful. And better yet, it (more or less) parallels Hunter’s basic lesson design that has been used for years as a model for lesson planning, making it far more accessible to most K-12 teachers without having to shoehorn yet another “thing” in

25 Top Concept-Mapping Tools For Visual Learning

25 Top Concept-Mapping Tools For Visual Learning | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Concept-mapping–or mind-mapping, idea-mapping, or some other variation that makes sense to you–is the practice of demonstrating the relationship between ideas in a map-like form.

 

Concept-mapping allows creators to articulate nuance, context, and interdependence between ideas in a very user-centered way. This makes them especially useful in education, whether you use them for pre-writing, research notes, or “back-mapping” a unit or unit assessment. They encourage macro-thinking, can provide a bridge to struggling writers who have trouble turning their thinking into prose, and are a powerful tool for visual learning.

 

In short, a well-done concept-map communicates the full context and nuance of an idea cleanly and visually, which can lead to other more in-depth study, such as extended research, expository writing, Socratic discussions, and other “academic actions” and literacy strategies.

 

Which makes the following list of 25 top concept-mapping (er, mind-mapping) tools by Lisa Johnson helpful for teachers and students alike.

15 Tools For Better Project-Based Learning

15 Tools For Better Project-Based Learning | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Project-Based Learning is a 21st century approach to learning that acts both as a curriculum and instruction tool, as well as a new way for students to think about school. Rather than strictly academic lessons and units, real-world problems can be solved, and students gain experience with long-term management of the learning process, and the possibility of self-direction.

 

Project-Based Learning allows naturally embedding of “school” in authentic environments whether those are digital or physical. It is a way of learning that is as much about the process as the project, allowing for the seamless integration of technology, and the inclusion of digital and social media to solve relevant personal and social challenges.

464 Digital Learning Tools To Sift Through On A Rainy Day | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The quality and practicality of digital learning tools is a bit subjective.

Where one classroom may do very well with the unpackaged and unfiltered content available on YouTube, Scribd, or podcasts, another teacher may want a practice app that picks one grade level of one content area and has students practice.

 

Where one teacher may create a classroom full of self-directed learners working through way through project-based learning units, another may want pre-packaged content like that available through MOOCs and iTunesU.
