Free Technology for Teachers: Recording & Mapping Local History - Project Idea

Free Technology for Teachers: Recording & Mapping Local History - Project Idea | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

Years ago when VoiceThread had a substantial free option, I asked students in one of my U.S. History classes to have a parent, an aunt or uncle, or a grandparent share a favorite memory about growing up in our area. The project worked fairly well and we collected some nice stories. I never upgraded my VoiceThread plan and those stories are long gone. But the same type of project could be undertaken by using a combination of Google Maps and YouTube or a combination of ThingLink and SoundCloud.

The Australian Curriculum | Advice on selection of literary texts

The Literature strand in the Australian Curriculum: English Foundation to Year 10 aims to engage students in the study of literary texts of personal, cultural, social and aesthetic value.


These texts include some that are recognised as having enduring social and artistic value and some that attract contemporary attention. Texts are chosen because they are judged to have potential for enriching the lives of students and expanding the scope of their experience, and because they represent effective and interesting features of form and style.

The 14 Best Resources on the Web for STEM Educators

The 14 Best Resources on the Web for STEM Educators | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

Perhaps the greatest reason that creating a STEM-educated generation is so important is the fast-approaching gap of workers in STEM-related fields. The baby boomers, those Americans born in the post-WWII era, are retiring en masse over the next few years, and there is a dearth of qualified labor to replace them in the science and engineering fields.
