How to Use Evernote

How to Use Evernote | Collaborative & SDL | Scoop.it
"It’s nearly impossible for me to cover every evolving nook and cranny of Evernote, let alone the cornucopia of features and specifics tailored exclusively for the differing platforms it runs on. That being the case, we’ve outlined a few general tips and tricks below for making the most of Evernote regardless of your device. I doubt they’ll make you an note-taking expert right off the bat, but consider them the second level of Evernote once you’ve mastered the basics of creating, tagging, organizing and sharing your notes."

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, June 12, 2014 2:19 PM

I avoided Evernote for a long time, but it has become increasingly useful for my information handling and remembering routines. I can post my passwords and encrypt the entry. I can forward emails to specific notebooks. This article goes from the elements of getting started to advanced tips and tricks.

Bodil Hernesvold's curator insight, August 18, 2014 5:32 AM

I use Evernote from time to time, and I like the tagging there, but there is so much more cool stuff to learn.

Constructive Classroom Conversations: Mastering the Language of the Common Core State Standards | Stanford Online - Mon. Oct. 21, 2013 to Mon. Dec. 9, 2013

"This short course looks closely at student-to-student discourse and addresses how to facilitate student engagement in the types of interactions required by the new standards. It organizes a massive collaboration of educators who wish to support students, particularly English Language Learners, to co-create and build upon each other’s ideas as they interact with the content.  Starting with the notion that in order to improve the quality of student discourse, educators need to listen closely to existing talk, the course asks participants to gather, analyze, and share examples of student conversations from their classrooms. The overall goal is for participating educators to better understand student-student classroom discourse and use what they learn to facilitate higher quality interactions that build disciplinary knowledge and skills."

Transmediation in the Middle Years: Integrating picture books & process drama activities to enhance students' engagement with multimodal text | QUT ePrints

Transmediation in the Middle Years: Integrating picture books & process drama activities to enhance students' engagement with multimodal text | QUT ePrints | Collaborative & SDL | Scoop.it
Exley, Beryl E. (2006) Transmediation in the Middle Years: Integrating picture books & process drama activities to enhance students' engagement with multimodal text.

 

Link to full text.

 

Abstract: This paper considers the efficacy of integrating picture books resources & process
drama activities to enhance middle years students’ engagement with multimodal text.
While picture books & role play have not traditionally been seen as sophisticated
resources & strategies for young adolescents, this paper suggests that they have
much utility for engaging middle years students as code breakers, text participants,
text users & text analysts (Luke & Freebody, 2000) of written, visual, oral & gestural
texts. This paper involves readers in exploring the sophistication of picture book
resources for young adolescents & working through a range of process drama
activities. The workshop activities are based on the John Marsden & Shaun Tan
(2003) allegory of colonisation, ‘The Rabbits’. Specifically, ‘attribute lists’,
‘sculptures’, ‘transformations’, ‘freeze frames’ & ‘conscious alley’ activities will be
introduced & analysed in terms of the literacy practice demands they make of middle
years students.

Evaluating Online Information - College@Home

It seems obvious, but college students (and everybody else) need to spend some time looking at how they evaluate the information they find online -- or which is sent to them. This is not detailed, but it's reasonable, with some good resources. -- Howard

 

"With the exponential growth of the world wide web, students need a more critical eye to sift through the bulk of information available online. While the Internet speeds up access to information, it also paves to the publication of anything, by anyone anywhere. Gone are the days when articles must be critiqued and evaluated before publication. Today, scholarly articles are not just buried in the bounty files of information. Their unscholarly counterparts also outnumber them. This reality reinforces the importance of critically evaluating online information. College students should learn the art of evaluating web-based information to make the most of them."
