"Healthy online reading habits require constant gardening. Every Internet company provides us a little plot to tend for, and that’s how they keep our attention where they want it. But the soil is pretty gross in most of them, and the seeds are tightly regulated. If we want to read healthily, we have to build our own info gardens.
The most important gardening task is deciding what to plant — that is, what sources to read — and that’s a personal choice. The topics, tone, and perspective of your information sources are for you to determine. But the bulk of the work is in building and tending the garden, and this guide will suggest some tools and methods to help. And with the gardening work out of the way, you’ll spend most of your time cooking, eating, and sharing. That’s the delicious part, and this guide will offer my best recipes."

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve spent some time addressing my earlier commitments to flipping at least some portion of my Language Arts classes. (You can learn about my ongoing saga at “4 Ways Flipping Forces Fundamental Change” and at “Why I Haven’t Flipped…Yet”). Reading FlipYour Classroom by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams provided practical advice and a justification for flipping, Learning about the Stanford studies that suggest better results from flipping your flipping (that is, doing hands-on work in the classroom first, reinforced by flipped lessons at night) But, ultimately, what I needed to do was to dive in and try out some tools with my kids and my curriculum in mind. The unexpected result: I’ve had to acknowledge something I hadn’t really thought about — I am a video-phobe.

"Bergmann and Sams are quick to point out that simply transferring a boring lecture to video will not transform anyone’s teaching in a way that dramatically benefits students."

"Though some have criticized the real value of MOOCs, it is undeniable that these courses give students the capacity to learn at a level never before made available to them. It may not be perfect, nor at times pretty or easy, but it is a step forward towards the ultimate goal of providing a quality education to not only the lucky and privileged, but to all who seek to better themselves through learning.
"Below is a list of courses from various MOOC providers, separated by subject areas that are increasingly valuable in today’s society. Also included are courses that educators can use to improve their own teaching methods, skills, and facilitate a more effective learning environment in their classrooms."

Those who started college with a goal of attaining a certificate (rather than a bachelor's degree) and took online courses were 3.22 times as likely to earn a credential than were students who did not take online courses.Read more: http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2013/11/26/study-online-learning-finds-it-helps-not-hurts-credential-attainment#ixzz2mNFmHPUN Inside Higher Ed

Digital literacy skills as defined by 6-12 teachers.
Last year my students designed infographics for the first time. I enjoyed the process and the products. It was a fun strategy to teach my students crucial research skills while encouraging them to think creatively about how to visually communicate information.
Infograpics and research skills: a topic make in heaven!
Great examples of how students can visually represent ideas - much better than a PowerPoint slide
Reading graphic text, creating graphic text - research and project based learning
Infographics could be used in Digital Storytelling. . .

"There are those times when a student wants to use and cite an image, but the original creator of the image and other important details are not exactly easy to identify.
Google’s reverse image search is a wonderful tool, but it’s a two-step process, requiring you to open Google and drag the image, or copy its URL into the search box with the little camera. (You could use the browser extension.)
Now, Google’s reverse image search feature is a bit more convenient."
Another handy research short cut from Google.
Google has made it much easier to search for images now IF you are using Chrome as a browser. You can simply right-click on an image (or hold down control on a Mac) and wait for a box to come up and click search Google. Quick and easy....if you have the right browser!
