GAFE-friendly Tools to Teach Evidence-based Writing | Imagine Easy Solutions

GAFE-friendly Tools to Teach Evidence-based Writing | Imagine Easy Solutions | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

Educational technology broadens the possibilities of the typical research paper. Teachers should now ask new questions, like: Can my students share their research with a larger audience through a blog, website or video? Can students collaborate on research papers? Can students collaborate on a Google Slides presentation to teach their peers?


This is not to say the research paper is a thing of the past. Ed tech and Google Apps for Education have improved academic writing and collaboration for both teachers and students, such as using Google Classroom, where teachers can watch students work on assignments in real time and make comments.


There are many new and exciting ways for teachers to facilitate discussions, and enable students to practice ethical and academic writing. Here are some GAFE-friendly tools you can use for your next evidence-based writing lesson.

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

Some wonderful questions that I look forward to answering.

I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.

You know that bumper sticker that says, “If you can read this, thank a teacher”? It’s the literal truth. While most of us spend more time thinking about reality TV stars and pro athletes, teachers are among the few people who truly affect our ...

Un insegnante ha il ruolo di un mentore, è un modello, sa aiutare i ragazzi nelle difficoltà e li incoraggia a seguire i loro sogni... A chi di voi è capitata la fortuna di conoscerne almeno uno/a nella vita?

Darleana McHenry's curator insight, September 11, 2013 11:56 PM

I had the opportunity to tell my first grade teacher thank you 5 years ago. She actually had kept my first grade picture all these years. My teachers were great and school was my favorite place and I excelled there. So thanks to all the teachers that I did not get to thank. :-)

There are days when we ask ourselves why we teach...and this infographic shares lots of reasons for why we teach and how we impact our students...so as a visual to share, or one to look at you when you need some building up.

Pinterest has become a great location to find educational sources, and now they have launched a teachers hub. Currently they are boards that share information for grades PreK through Grade 6 (one board per grade) as well as boards for Art, Science, Math, Classroom Decor, Classroom Management, Home  School, Literacy, Sensory Learning, Gold Star Supplies, Back to School and Educational Blogs.

For more information on this new feature you may travel over to the Pinterest Blog where they posted "Say Hello to Pinterest" at http://blog.pinterest.com/post/58175180377/say-hello-to-teachers-on-pinterest

The current boards are for elementary school but the post also notes that they will "work together with Edutopia—an online resource for educators—to build out the education-focused community on Pinterest."

If you are looking for lesson plans, ideas for your classroom, and more it is worth checking out this resource.

The Teacher Treasury's comment, August 22, 2013 1:54 AM
This is a wonderful idea. Really looking forward to the development of this Teacher Hub.
