Teaching Transmedia with Comics: A Conversation with Tyler Weaver

Teaching Transmedia with Comics: A Conversation with Tyler Weaver | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Peter Gutierrez:  "As a reference work on media/transmedia, both aesthetically and historically, as a how-to for student media-makers, or simply on the professional development shelf, so that teachers and librarians can mine it for ideas, [Tyler Weaver’s book is] a text that can fill many needs at once. I was delighted, then, when the author agreed to talk to me about this fascinating topic" …

Tax Day: Visualizations Of The Federal Budget To Teach STEM & Financial Literacy

Tax Day: Visualizations Of The Federal Budget To Teach STEM & Financial Literacy | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Tax day is rapidly approaching. April also happens to be Financial Literacy Month. It makes sense, therefore, to tap into the annual angst of April 15 to teach students about the nuances of the federal budget and the impact of income tax dollars. Aside from offering relevant windows into the priorities of the national government, the visualizations and motion graphics below also provide keen tools to practice mathematical analysis and the graphic charting of data.

Content and Design: Pushing Learners Beyond Mediocrity

Content and Design: Pushing Learners Beyond Mediocrity | Design in Education | Scoop.it

What is clear is that many of our learners think it’s just fine the way it is. When they are assessed on their work with a clear outline of the expectations based on instruction and modeling, they often fail to meet those expectations. As educators, our delivery of content is evaluated on presentation of material, integration of technology, engaging activities, and differentiated instruction. Yet, it seems our students think that delivering text-heavy presentations spinning out of control in Prezi, shallow research to demonstrate understanding, or shoddy work put together in haste is okay.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: The Geography Of The Cold - Interactive Mapping Of Flu Season

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: The Geography Of The Cold - Interactive Mapping Of Flu Season | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Our kids are dropping like flies. Each day has seen three or four more names added to the long list of children absent from school due to an aggressive cold and flu season. We, too, can't seem to shake our hacking coughs, lingering headaches, and clogged sinuses.

The feisty contagion of this wintery bug has sent us looking to maps and graphics to find out if we are alone in our viral vortex and if frigid weather really does exacerbate cold symptoms.

Not Irish, Snake Charmer, Or Saint - St. Patrick's Day Resources | Design in Education | Scoop.it

In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, many of us will don green even if we are not Irish. The Irish diaspora around the world makes it hard not to feel a little Irish on March 17. In fact, the Irish population in the United States is seven times larger than that of Ireland, and approximate 71 million live outside of the country.

Flipping The Flipped Classroom - Motion Infographics For STEM Learning

Flipping The Flipped Classroom - Motion Infographics For STEM Learning | Design in Education | Scoop.it

The conceit of the flipped classroom is rapidly becoming mainstream. The idea of using audio and visual content to pre-teach a lesson has resonated with educators nationwide. Teachers across a range of financial and technological considerations are inventing ways to rethink their students' engagement with homework. Maybe this is because the "new" idea of homework is really an old idea.

On one hand, "flipped" learning is really just good teaching; it makes productive use of children's time at home, rather than wasting their personal hours with rote worksheets. On the other hand, flipping the classroom means letting students sort through essential content at their own pace and time. The ultimate goal is to make fruitful use of shared class hours. As a result, this communal time can elevate basic material to richer discussions of cause-and-effect, sequencing, hypothesizing, and producing.

Digital Empathy: How Modern Maps Are Charting A Personal Cartography

Digital Empathy: How Modern Maps Are Charting A Personal Cartography | Design in Education | Scoop.it

When most people think about maps, they think of social studies worksheets or antique dealers. They might also remember the avatar on their Waze app or the time they got lost in Amish country.

In truth, maps are emblematic of mankind. The act of mapping is about trying to locate oneself within a geography of space and emotion. The human impulse to pinpoint "place" is about giving order to a complex topography of physicality and personality.

Social Media Policy Teaches Digital Citizenship

Social Media Policy Teaches Digital Citizenship | Design in Education | Scoop.it

This motion graphic speaks volumes about using good digital citizenship in social media. Educators did not design it. Instead, Curated Content created it for the Australian based company Origin. Instead of opting for the traditional “white paper” policy guidelines for social media, Origin chose to inform its employees about its usage with an entertaining approach involving a motion graphic.

Understanding Race: Are We So Different? – A Welcome Resource

Understanding Race: Are We So Different? – A Welcome Resource | Design in Education | Scoop.it

We want to follow up our previous post on the topic of race with an excellent resource for educators. “Race: Are we so different?” was developed by the American Anthropological Association in collaboration with the Science Museum of Minnesota. It was the first national traveling exhibition to tell the story of race through biological, cultural, and historical points of view. The exhibition was also the winner of the American Association of Museums’ Excellence in Exhibition Competition in 2008.

Although the exhibit no longer travels, its website is a treasure trove of resources for educators, and it does not shy away from addressing the topic head-on. "Race" seeks to explain the differences among people to reveal the “reality – unreality – of race.” It looks at it through three lenses: history, human variation, and lived experiences.

Is The Media Patriotic? Image Advertising In The Sochi Olympics

Is The Media Patriotic? Image Advertising In The Sochi Olympics | Design in Education | Scoop.it

In our opinion, the winter Olympics provides an advertising bonanza that outshines the recent Super Bowl buffet. The Sochi Games offers a roster of appropriate choices to share with students, especially when compared to the risque NFL cavalcade. So far, the 2014 ads have been patriotic rather than prurient, sensitive rather than sexual, sincere rather than sensational.

Graphicacy - The Key To Visual Thinking In A Differentiated Classroom

Graphicacy - The Key To Visual Thinking In A Differentiated Classroom | Design in Education | Scoop.it

In the scholastic world's quest to pinpoint new "literacies," one of the most essential skills in a student's toolkit isn't new at all. "Graphicacy" is the vital proficiency with visual inputs that all learners must master in the modern classroom. Graphicacy refers to the encoding and decoding of images, particularly in the close examination of details that construct visual meaning. It stands with literacy, oracy, and numeracy as one of the four indispensable corners of education.

Ides Of March - With Syria, Not Shakespeare

Ides Of March - With Syria, Not Shakespeare | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Sometimes when we get caught up in the day-to-day activity in our classrooms, we overlook something important. We celebrated Pi Day last Friday, and St. Patrick’s Day on Monday, but missed the Ides of March over the weekend. We are not talking about the infamous line in the play Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. Instead, March 15 marked the third anniversary of the civil war in Syria.

Right now, the news is preoccupied with the missing Malaysian jet. Even the crisis in the Ukraine has taken second stage to the airplane mystery. While this is an urgent matter, little attention to other newsworthy information seems to make the evening news, particularly about Syria. Is it that old? Too boring? Not current enough?

David Baker's curator insight, March 15, 4:21 PM

This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.

Cross-Curricular Motion Graphics - Digital Technology To Bridge The Sciences & Humanities | Design in Education | Scoop.it
Innovative design crosses over all aspects of education. The American Society for Innovation Design in Education, or ASIDE, seeks to infuse curriculum with new approaches to teaching and thinking. Integrating the design of information into the daily conversation is an essential part of the teacher's toolkit and the purpose of the ASIDE blog. The underpinning of innovation and educational design is based on looking at the information available and communicating meaning for a world of learners. Thinking like a designer can transform the way children learn. ASIDE's goal is to bring together as much information, resources and supportive scholarship in one place for teaching and learning.

Geography Is Having A Moment - Why Maps Are The New Meme | Design in Education | Scoop.it

An unexpected type of viral visualization has steadily been trudging to the tops of search results. Maps, it seems, are the new vogue. They've taken Tumblr by storm, and with over a billion Google hits, maps have nudged out kittens and lipsynchers as the most-flared pop culture content.

A search of Fast Company's most popular pages yields 15,526 entries for "map"-related articles. BuzzFeed, the barometer of web bravado, daily pushes geography to the top of its "Win" column.

Let's Talk About Race

Let's Talk About Race | Design in Education | Scoop.it

February is African American History Month.  We celebrate the amazing men and women who contributed to the cultural fabric of the United States. It’s a time to reflect on their struggles, accomplishments, and contributions. As teachers, we make every effort to weave the importance of this into our curricula regardless of discipline. Yet, as educators, do we get to the heart of the matter and talk about race? Isn’t African American History Month as much about race, as it is about heritage? We think so.

If you’re like us, you may be finding that the polar vortex has wreaked havoc on classes from the multiple snow-day closures. The looming mid-winter break isn’t making things any easier with the constant struggle to keep kids focused on learning. Add Valentine’s Day into the mix on top of everything else, and things get complicated.

 

Well, take heart. While we don’t typically spend too much time on Valentine’s Day as a special holiday, we know our kids enjoy it. We suppose that’s why we are always looking to find new material each year to bring them into focus during the heart of winter.

Sketchnotes Live! – Combining Low & High Tech

Sketchnotes Live! – Combining Low & High Tech | Design in Education | Scoop.it

We’ve long been advocates for using sketchnotes with learners and have written many posts on how organizing information using visual cues forms a structural framework for ideas. The sketchnotes featured in this post were created by our fifth graders to answer the question, “What makes a civilization?”

Our students have grown to be quite particular about designing information by putting a good deal of personal selection into their work. For this reason, we wanted to find ways to use technology to publish their sketchnotes, not only as images, but also as a way to extend their understanding of the content.
