Oppia - Home

Jennifer Dorman's insight:

Oppia is a tool for creating interactive online activities that enable students to learn by doing. Its creators believe that this is often a more effective and efficient way of learning than either watching videos or reading texts, since it allows the student to engage more deeply with the activity in a way that videos or books often do not.

Storyboards fit into the Common Core... Speaking and Listening #5- presentations fall under storytelling. Storyboards help us get there!

Actions Speak's curator insight, May 23, 2013 9:07 PM

Communication is the primary obstacle to progress.

 

Do you use any storyboard techniques to get your point across?

The Similarities Between Montessori And Digital Learning

The Similarities Between Montessori And Digital Learning | ClioEDtech | Scoop.it

"At first glance, the intersections between Montessori education and high-quality digital learning are not immediately apparent. To those of us with some knowledge about Montessori methods—based on formal training, general awareness or, as in my case, the observations of a parent whose children attend a Montessori school—its natural materials and deep traditions seem to stand in opposition to the vision of a futuristic, technology-rich digital or blended learning environment."

Small Demons: Welcome to the Storyverse

Small Demons: Welcome to the Storyverse | ClioEDtech | Scoop.it

Description by Jose R. Mejia on Cool Hunting

 

"Taking an ambitious approach to filtering information online, Small Demons is a new site dedicated to opening up the worlds inside of books. Not just another search engine for what's inside your favorite novel, Small Demons collects and catalogs the millions of references to real-world and fictional music, movies, people, and objects that are found in literature. Your new favorite restaurant could be on the next page of the book you're reading, and Small Demons hopes to provide a place where you can draw meaningful connections between stories and everyday life.

 

"The site uses both algorithms and human touch to make these links and open up what Small Demons calls a "Storyverse," or the expanse of details that support a good story. "A computer can tell us how many times a song appears in a book. But it can't tell us that it is the song that the couple dances to at the wedding reception or the song the jilted lover plays after being dumped. It can't tell you the emotional resonance of it. So we are going to be relying on librarians and authors and gifted amateurs to come in and help us fix and add and weight and evaluate all the data we are generating," says Richard Nash, the start-up's VP of Community and Content."

HSI: Historical Scene Investigation

Jennifer Dorman's insight:

The Historical Scene Investigation Project (HSI) was designed for social studies teachers who need a strong pedagogical mechanism for bringing primary sources into their classroom. With the advent and accessibility of the internet, many libraries, universities and government agencies are housing their historical documents online. Simultaneously, there has been a push in K-12 history education to give students experiences that more closely resemble the work of a real historian.

10 Techy Icebreakers for The 21st Century Teacher

10 Techy Icebreakers for The 21st Century Teacher | ClioEDtech | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach

 

"Icebreakers are " discussion questions or activities used to help participants relax and ease into a group meeting or learning situation" (Dover, 2004). Icebreakers are very important in the learning-teaching process that takes place within the classroom. They can help in creating and maintaining a healthy and successful learning environment for students and are also the best warm-ups to get students engaged in a learning task."

Regardless of whether or not you use these as ice-breakers, there are some great tools to know about here.

kathyvsr's curator insight, April 10, 2013 11:15 AM

This is a great resource for the beginning of school and the activities can also be used to pre-assess the student skills.
