Instructional Objectives Builder: Online Tool for Writing Objectives

Instructional Objectives Builder: Online Tool for Writing Objectives | Creative Publishing Tools and Resources for Education | Scoop.it
Use this application to build instructional objectives for your courses and training programs.

Beth Dichter's insight:

This tool is easy to use and assists you in writing objectives. It is based on Bloom's taxonomy and provides a number of drop down menus that allow you to:

* Select what students will do after completing a lesson

* Provides an overview of the meaning of the level you selected

* Provides a drop down list of verbs that help to clearly define the objective (you choose the one you want to use)

* Provides some sample objectives that use the verb you selected

* Write your own objective, and then copy and paste it into your document or print a copy

The version of Bloom's they have online uses the word synthesis while the new version has removed synthesis and replaces it with creating. I don't believe that this impacts the value of the tool but you should be aware that it may not provide the assistance for that specific category.

Wow, what a great tool! Sometimes the biggest challenge in writing objectives is simply being able to articulate what you want from students. This will be a great resource for that step!

Although I don't appreciate ready-made wizards such as this one. But it could be a good tool to just start with and build upon the objectives produced by this tool.

Yeah, having your schoolwork posted on the fridge at home is cool. But having a video you made posted on the White House website and screened at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? We think that’s pretty cool, too. That’s why we’re super-excited to announce the
first-ever White House Student Film Festival: a video contest created just for K-12 students, and whose finalists will have their short films shown at the White House. Finalist videos may also be featured on the White House website, YouTube channel, and social media pages.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

 

 

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world.

Not research per se, but it's an interesting prompt towards thinking carefully about uilding projects for education. There are may things to think about to make a project a really good, worthwhile learning experience.

November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.
