I agree Teri. It encourages reading and encourages students to be in charge of their learning.
Audrey's curator insight, August 9, 2013 7:39 AM

Using the Socratic process the educator is a tutor.  The process  encourages evaluative and analytical thinking.

Teachers that are more reflective are more effective in the classroom. The difference between learning a skill and being able to implement it effectively is in our capacity to engage in deep, continuous thought about that skill.

Infographics might be considered the intersection of information, illustration and design. They provide students with the opportunity to share information in a variety of ways. This post shares the story of one teacher and her implementation of a research project which culminated in an infographic. After a brief introduction (which includes an excellent interactive infographic, 13 Reasons Why Your Brain Craves Infographics). Following this introduction there are six components that are shared:

* Select an Infographic-Friendly Topic

* Begin the Drafting Process by Hand

* Choose the Right Templates or Software

* Refine Content and Design

* Infographic Resources and Tools for Educators

* Share and Critique

Each section provides additional detail and a number of resources that you will find helpful are included.

An inquiry approach supports students as they draw on their prior knowledge, personal experiences, and critical thinking skills to develop questions that guide their learning. The process engages students because pursuing the answers to their own questions gives them direct control as they construct meaning about topics of interest. Join us for a webinar focused on strategies for taking an inquiry approach to teaching with primary sources on Tuesday, November 18, at 4 PM ET.

Mary Starry's curator insight, September 12, 2014 11:24 AM

As students buy fewer textbooks and utilize more e-books provided by institution purchase, such as PharmacyAccess, this needs to be kept in mind.  Do we need to provide paper handouts of the key points? Should students take notes or create mind-maps of the key points to help further reinforce what they are reading electronically? There is also new studies highlighting the importance of note taking. Faculty may need to develop new approaches to achieve the deeper learning desired in our electronic device world.

How often do you give your gifted students the opportunity to solve authentic, relevant problems? What is more authentic to a student than solving classroom problems? And what excites students more than having ownership over the classroom seating? Here's an authentic problem solving idea that ties in public speaking skills, group work, and classroom ownership.

A GREAT way to include authentic problem solving in the classroom! Ian Byrd at Byrdseed indicates that this activity is for gifted students, but I have found that, with sensitivity, many gifted activities transition well to classrooms with a wide-range of abilities.

Tips for creating Scenario Based Learning

Tips for creating Scenario Based Learning | Common Core and ELA + Math instruction | Scoop.it
Scenario based learning is very effective when employees must be given real world practice before they actually try their hand on a new role. These ‘scenarios’ or ‘situations’ are created to mimic typical, real experiences that a given employee would have on a day of his/her job. SBL is best applied when it requires learners to apply critical thinking and decision making skills and learn from failures or successful outcomes. However, for that to happen, instructional designers must be able to create scenarios that are a relevant and successful blend of the different factors that can trigger such critical thinking and decision making.

The NEW Periodic Table Song (In Order) - YouTube

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 8, 2014 9:28 PM

With the new revised Periodic Table there was the need for a new Periodic Table song...and here it is. Not only are the elements in order, the song also explains the new set-up of the table.

You may want to partner this with the new TED-Ed Periodic Videos that have been published. There is a video for every element.

If you find the  New Period Table Song moving a bit too quickly you can find a version that is slowed down HERE. You will also find the words to the song in you click "Show More" under the video (for the song versions) and you will find links to download the song.

As students have to learn this new chart many will find the song entertaining and a great way to learn the elements. The videos from TED-Ed provide an avenue for students to learn about the elements by watching a video, which many will also find entertaining.

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.
