Kathy Schrock's Guide to Infographics

Kathy Schrock's Guide to Infographics | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Infographics are a visual representation of data. When students create infographics, they are using information, visual, and technology literacies. This page includes links to help you develop formative or summative assessments that have students creating infographics to showcase their mastery of knowledge.

I agree that infographics can convey a lot; I need to learn to make them.

Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster

Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Through the course of our “summer school” here at Techfaster we’ve met plenty of tech savvy educators. From ISTE in early July to the NAESP show and Campus Tech that wrapped up this week, teachers, administrators and education enthusiasts were learning, sharing, and networking with each other. These are definitely the tech savvy teacher type, and that’s validated in the infographic below from Daily Genius. But just because you spent part of the summer at EdTech conferences doesn’t necessarily mean you are a tech savvy teacher. Of course the reverse is true as well, maybe you had family events and your own kids to tend to during the summer. Are you a tech savvy teacher? A strong indicator would be that you’re even reading this article here at techfaster.com. Are you keeping your students, parents, fellow teachers and administrators up to date with the goings on in your classroom with your own blog? That’s a good sign you’re a tech savvy teacher. Just think about what the communication you can have with a blog, would have been like in the days of the ditto machine? You would have to plan out your thoughts, outline them, create a ditto original, print them, pass them out to students, and just pray they didn’t end up on the floor of the school bus. Are you networking with other teachers you’ve never met on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or a knowledge sharing educational site? Are you regularly attending edtech chat or listening to podcasts? All of these are signs that you care about your own professional development, living in current times and caring about your students. YouTube, Twitter, SnapChat, Minecraft, Instagram, and Vine are all a part of your students lives. Facebook, Pinterest and email are all a part of your students’ parents’ lives. You’re almost too far behind if you’re not a “tech savvy” teacher. Check out the infographic below and see how you stack up.

Teaching With Infographics

Teaching With Infographics | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"This past week I taught a few classes on infographics and decided to update the page by adding a section called "Teaching With Infographics". It is important for your students to make sure that they evaluate any infographics they are using, by making sure the author/creator has cited their references. Misinformation on the web exists. Have students read these tips to make a better infographic."

Great resources including instructional videos.

Very helpful and great tips to follow.

Claudia Estrada's curator insight, February 23, 2014 2:56 PM

Working with info graphics has become an important skill now a days because new generation reads better images with less text.  Helping students to become good users of it is developing 21st. century learners.

Visualizing Text: The New Literacy of Infographics

Visualizing Text: The New Literacy of Infographics | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Infographics are modern, written artifacts about collected resources in a dynamic, visual format. Infographics should be viewed as complex, standalone texts, not simply a text feature or graphic element.

Visualizing is a powerful multisensory technique. 

rwestby's curator insight, January 20, 2014 3:15 PM

Food for thought...could this be the new book report format?

Sweet music!

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, July 1, 2014 10:47 AM


A bit of a edu-tisement for U.F. but this graphic has a ton of info points on music and it's value in learning.

Terry Doherty's curator insight, July 1, 2014 12:44 PM

The bottom line is that U of F wants you to think about being a music educator. I really focused on the research about how music helps with language skills.

Framework for Professional Development: SAMR Template & Infographic

Framework for Professional Development: SAMR Template & Infographic | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"My colleague, Silvana Meneghini, and I have been working on developing a Professional Development framework for embedding technology use and modern learning litercies based on Ruben Puentedura's SAMR model.

The template consists of 4 Focus Areas. Each stage of the SAMR model consists of 4 focus areas in the template, that support vision, planning, and evaluation in activity and task design as well as a professional development framework."

Beth Dichter's insight:

If you are considering using the SAMR model to design lesson plans/units you should consider checking out this post. There is a very detailed template that helps you walk through the steps and consider how to best design your lesson/unit. The template is detailed and you may download it as a pdf. An example is included.

Many are turning to the SAMR model as a guide to integrate technology into their curriculum. If this model is new to you search this Scoop.it or type SAMR in your favorite search engine and you will find a wide variety of resources.

Matthew Jorgensen's curator insight, August 21, 2014 9:18 PM

SAMR model is a great way to show teachers where they should be heading.  It is gradual and each stage has greta benefits.

The media capabilities of student devices (including but not limited to iPads) open up a diverse spectrum of rich assignment formats. This Notre Dame site contains helpful exemplars and instructions for those starting out in this new field of both formative and summative assessment.
