NYSCATE 2014 - Simple Ways To Publish In A Paperless Environment

NYSCATE 2014 - Simple Ways To Publish In A Paperless Environment | Design in Education | Scoop.it

The increasing use of technology to deliver information means the traditional bulletin board is going the way of the newspaper. While teachers still display student work in traditional venues, they can also seek alternate, virtual opportunities to share projects with peers and parents. Publishing student work motivates them to see, share, and engage in the collective consumption of ideas. Simple, free digital tools make it easier than ever to display content online. Collaborative whiteboards, digital fliers, and virtual pinboards can exhibit student creations with creative design.

Ban Highlighting, Blackout Instead – Poetry Nonfiction Using Notability | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Recently, we started to experiment with the blackout technique that is often used in creating poetry from newspapers and other texts, and we banned highlighting. To our surprise, the blackout process had additional benefits that we did not consider at first.

Graphicacy: Infographics As Literacy | Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE

Graphicacy: Infographics As Literacy | Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE | Design in Education | Scoop.it

This is interesting.  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.  Everywhere we look these days, we see infographics.  Infographics are the realization of information in a visual format.  They claim it is a literacy on par with textual, oral, and numerical skills. Visualization often takes a backseat in traditional classrooms, because understanding pictures is thought to be a natural consequence of basic vision. The conventional wisdom says that if people can see, then naturally they can comprehend what they see.  Personally I do agree that visualization of a concept does a fantastic job of emphasizing facts in a way that turns them into knowledge.   Especially when the information involves facts and figures, an infographic displays the facts in a way that usually leaves me with an AHA moment.

Infographics–A Tool for Teaching “Graphicacy” | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Wikipedia defines infographics a bit more broadly than I’ve thought of them—they’re “any graphic visual representation of information, data, or knowledge,” including subway maps and traffic signs.

10 Tech Tips To Spice Up Summer Reading

10 Tech Tips To Spice Up Summer Reading | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Most kids (and teachers) hate summer reading. They view it as a chore, an unnecessary evil, a relic of schoolhouse drudgery. Even students who love to read groan at prescriptive lists of books that will receive little attention once the academic year begins. Even when offered a choice of titles, students drag their heels in completing linear book reviews or reader-response journals.This is because in their active lives, kids are multitasking on social media while setting up Minecraft servers. They don't understand why summer work should force them to take a step back in time and technology. In order to spice up their summer literary lives, why not let students savor some easy tech ingredients, to make reading a zestier part of their wired worlds?

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Librarians, Technology, And The New Literacies

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Librarians, Technology, And The New Literacies | Design in Education | Scoop.it

A librarian's role is also evolving as "literacy" in its traditional sense is changing. It's not just that e-readers have joined classic texts, or that online sources have joined traditional journals. It is much more. Multiple literacies are continually growing to require mastery in more than one, and librarians are poised to be on the front lines in delivering instruction and resources to help in this understanding.
