Very thorough guide to using, assessing and making ePortfolios happen. Plenty of tips and suggestions for which apps to use and how to digitise work. Nicely presented and easy to follow. Also does a good job talking about the 'why' of ePortfolios. This is the part I find some of my teachers struggle with.

This scoop is fantastic for educators, formative assessment is a pivital part of assessment and all teachers must be aware that there are many examples to do formative assessment.  Within the Australian Curriculum all Key Learning Areas will benefit from this document.  The document is also downloadable, this is great to allow teachers to change examples to suit their specific needs.

10 Questions to Ask When Planning Tech Infused Units

10 Questions to Ask When Planning Tech Infused Units | Higher Ed and Information Technology | Scoop.it
Here at Edtech at About.com, we've put together a list of potential technology-related questions that you may want to ask yourself when planning for instruction and designing curriculum. Many of these ideas are inspired by existing frameworks and philosophies focused on tech integration.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 24, 2015 8:35 AM

How can teachers best integrate technology into their lesson plans? This post looks at 10 questions we should consider asking ourselves, and provides suggestions of tools to consider using that will help us seamlessly integrate technology. Below are the first four questions.

1. How am I activating into my students' prior knowledge?

2. How am I presenting information to students in an engaging way?

3. How am I collecting, disseminating, and annotating student work?

4. What opportunities and resources am I giving my students for practice?

Integrating technology should become a component of our lesson design. As you review the additional questions you will find that not all apply to every lesson you teach. Think about your objectives and then select the question(s) most applicable.

As you look at the suggested tools in the post make sure that you try using the ones you choose. There is nothing more frustrating than to use a tool as a teacher, and you know it works...but when the student logs in the tool is blocked due to permissions. My lesson learned...I must test each and every tool, so that I know how to use it and to make sure students also have access.

Kimberly House's curator insight, April 25, 2015 8:16 AM

This is an excellent article and very helpful for teachers looking for a way in  to using or enhancing what they do with technology. The list of ideas for each section are high quality. Great recommendations and ideas here.

13 Digital Research Tools For The Google Generation

13 Digital Research Tools For The Google Generation | Higher Ed and Information Technology | Scoop.it

"This post is promoted by Noet, makers of Encyclopedia Britannica Noet Edition and the free research app for the classics, who asked us to talk about the credibility of information research in a digital world. We thought, then, that it might make sense to focus on digital tools and resources that highlight the idea of credibility."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 5, 2015 11:28 PM

Terry Heick makes it clear that this is a sponsored post and recommends 13 lessons and 13 tools that we may want to share with learners (and teachers) to help them gain a better understanding as to why research and credibility are important digital concepts. Below are several of the "lessons" that we need to understand.

* Not all sources are created equal.

* You can combine digital search with academic content.

* Question everything - even if you like the source.

* Want credibility? Cite your sources.

In addition to the 13 lessons there are also thirteen tools that are suggested, such as:

* EasyBib

* Summon (an alternative to Google Scholar)

* Zotero - a website that is free and allows you to "collect, organize, cite and share your research choices."

There is much more information in this post so take the time to click through...and think how nice it would be if our learners understood and embraced the 13 lessons.

This is a must explore tool as you design transformative learning activities for your students.  A quick free  registration allows you access through the "Browser" to a collection of exemplar pedagogical patterns which you can redesign for your own teaching practice. The "Designer" tab provides a pedagogical pattern template to help you describe your own teaching idea for a session (e.g. student preparation, class activities and homework)..

"Anyone can type a word or phrase into the Google window and hope for the best.

Some even use quotation marks, or use autocomplete to their advantage. But how about putting a dash before a word to exclude it from your search? Or using the tilde–like a boss–to search for synonyms for a term as well?"
