Love this! This is a great tool to share with ignorant teachers who are only 1 step ahead of their students.  As NYS rolls-out the research initiative, this will help us triage poor online habits.   And...if a student uses databases, it makes this a little easier.  

Tania Gammage's curator insight, September 4, 2013 5:57 AM

This would be an excellent poster for a school library

Julie Aterman's curator insight, September 19, 2013 7:25 AM

This is great! I wish I could get it as a poster.

Looks like a good idea. Especially since you become the owner of the work and it is not stored on a third party site...

Vicki Mast's curator insight, September 13, 2013 8:24 AM

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.

Useful for explaining concepts in a visually interesting way.

The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They're Changing) - Edudemic

The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They're Changing) - Edudemic | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Testing, especially any sort of standardized testing tends to get a bad rap. Teachers complain that they spend too much time teaching to a test. But assessments do have value, and an important place in our learning structure. By measuring what students are learning, we as teachers can look at how we are approaching different subjects, materials, and even different students. The handy infographic takes a look at different types of assessments and their attributes and questions. Keep reading to learn more.

Do you like standardized testing?

Can we stop measuring  students?

Dee KC's curator insight, August 6, 2013 12:25 PM

following the DfE's assessing without levels guidance this looks like  god place to start when reviewing how you measure progress
