A very good reminder now that "Budget talk" is going on in our schools, and librarians are not mentioned as necessary.

Always take a momento to read Stephen Krashen and think about his words.

I really like this comic strip creator. Very user-friendly. Requires free registration to save, print and export strips. Free registration allows the creation of three comic strips per week.

High Tech High isn’t that Technical - Digital Literacy

High Tech High isn’t that Technical - Digital Literacy | Blended Learning and Inquiry | Scoop.it

All the learning starts from projects and then builds on the knowledge. Developing the skills of the students comes before the learning outcomes. Projects don't occur at the end of the unit to show the teacher what they learned; the units are the projects and the teacher draws out the learning in the context of the project. Students say if it is work worth doing, then they work hard to do their best. Motivation doesn't seem to be a big issue.

 

Projects are completed to the best of the student's ability, not to the completion date. To draw out the best possible work, the school has created "critique protocols" that provide real feedback from a variety of sources. Students keep going on their projects and "tune" them to reflect deeper and more meaningful connections. At the end of projects students always demonstrate their learning to "real audiences." Throughout the process students document their learning, encouraged to erase or delete nothing.
