A New Wonderful Google Forms Cheat Sheet for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A New Wonderful Google Forms Cheat Sheet for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Class Tech | Scoop.it
Google Forms is one of the powerful tools you want to make sure you have in your teaching toolkit.There are different ways you can use it with your students in class. You can, for instance, use it to create quizzes, polls, questionnaires, and surveys. You can also use it to design permission forms, absence slips, classroom events forms…you name it. The great thing about Google Forms, besides being free and easy to use, is the fact that it is integrated with Google Drive which means that any form you create is automatically saved in your Drive and you can access it anywhere you go with Internet connection.

Google Forms offer eLearning professionals the ability to create surveys, contact forms, and quizzes quickly and conveniently. One of the most valuable benefits of using Google Forms in eLearning is that you have the opportunity to track an abundance of information and store it in one centralized location.

6 Great tools for content curation - Daily Genius

6 Great tools for content curation - Daily Genius | Class Tech | Scoop.it

"I read recently that content curation is dead. I have a few different arguments against this concept, but for now, I’ll keep it short and sweet: Content curation is not dead, and while the debate over curating content online vs creating new content will rage on and on, curating content for other reasons is still going strong.

 That said, there are a lot of different ways to go about content curation, so we’ve test driven a few different tools so you can figure out which might work best for you whether you’re curating content for work projects, assigning it as a school project, for your own professional development, or personal interests."

I'm rescooping this for three reasons. First, the term "curation" is fairly new to me and it is nice to see how different forms it can take. Secondly, I read so many blogposts entitled "10 tools for this" or "35 reasons for that". It is nice too see one of those where all of the 6 tools are actually great. Third, the fact that I actually have experience with three of the six tools makes me feel good. So enjoy :)

There's a Better Way to Teach Critical Thinking: 9 Rules of Thumb

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 13, 7:00 PM

This post begins with a number of definitions for critical thinking, from the basic (as seen above) to more complex (as seen through the eyes of Common Core). It then goes on to look at:

Where did the concept come from?

The next section, "What does the term really mean?" provides two lists. The first list is "what we know critical thinking isn't. Below are two of the items on this list.

* Simply mimicking others thinking.

* Being biased towords (or against) one way of thinking.

The second list, "what we know critical thinking is."  This list includes:

* Willingness to be wrong.

* Questioning one's own thinking.

The final section provides Three Rules of Thumb - one for Essays, one for Discussions and one for Tests.

Below is one example from each of the Three Rules of Thumb.

* Discuss the phrasing of prompts.

* Highlight the mysterious.

* Include the "how" and "why" in multiple choice questions.

Each section of this post provides additional details.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 22, 12:03 PM

I suspect critical thinking predates the Ancient Greeks. Without critical thinking, humans might not have gotten to that point in history. A great take away from the article is the importance of questioning. A second take away, perhaps hidden away, is the importance of questioning what we think critical thinking is and is not and engaging in conversations.

[Infographic] 20 of the best Study Apps for the plugged-in student

[Infographic] 20 of the best Study Apps for the plugged-in student | Class Tech | Scoop.it
Teaching and learning through technology is a complex thing. Learning what, from whom, and why?

But in terms of pure academic preparation–practicing skills and the application of concepts for traditional classroom projects and assessments? Technology like Android and Windows tablets, iPads, and smartphones become even more useful. Why? Because they’re, by nature, “me” devices–a personal screen to display exactly the content you need, exactly when you need it.

The inputs are yours, and are usually quick and simple.

The operating system is probably one you’re familiar with (assuming the device is yours), which makes the workflow of finding and using the app, then sharing any output from that app more seamless–or at least familiar.

So the following list graphic that collects some of the best study apps out there. Stalwarts like Evernote and Any.Do make an appearance, but we were happy to see CamScanner, Zite, and Focus@Will to get some love.

Studying isn’t just about content–it’s also about a comfortable student being able to save time, streamline processes, and focus on the task at hand.

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius | Class Tech | Scoop.it
Though more than two years into my school’s implementation of project based learning, yesterday, I found myself excited all over again. I was helping a second grade teacher enhance her landforms PBL by using Padlet as part of the KWL process and suddenly realized that this approach to student-centered learning has truly become a part of who we are as a school.

My adventures in combining PBLs and iPads began with a gift of two carts. I had just started taking the PBLU online courses when the head of our independent pre-k through eighth grade school challenged each grade-level team to teach one unit using the PBL approach while finding authentic ways to draw in iPads. As the lower school technology integration person, I immediately went on a quest to find a guinea pig willing to plan and co-teach a PBL unit incorporating iPads. This is the story of that first experience. . .

When students get creative with tech tools, teachers focus on skills

When students get creative with tech tools, teachers focus on skills | Class Tech | Scoop.it
One of the most intimidating aspects of infusing technology into curriculum is that educators often believe that they will have to master and then teach their students to use new technology tools before assigning a project. These concerns are understandable as our time for professional development is finite and school curricula are already packed. However, consider the impact if, rather than focusing on new tools, we explored the skills students need to learn and then incorporated the most effective digital resources to accomplish those objectives.
