Too Long Didn't Read -  (TLDR) provides cognitive rescaling tools for students with cognitive or learning disabilities. The Chrome and Android app (free) provides a synopsis or summary of an article in four different options. A great option for students with disabilities and teachers needing to reduce the vocabulary and condense the contet of articles.

 

A great resource!

Is modern technology creating a culture of distraction? | E-learning & digital literacy | Scoop.it
Yes, mobile devices and social networks can produce a lot of distractions, and resisting that may be difficult — as critics like Joe Kraus point out. But is this really a disaster in the making, or just another social evolution we need to undergo?

Why (And How) Teachers Are Using Twitter - Edudemic

Why (And How) Teachers Are Using Twitter - Edudemic | E-learning & digital literacy | Scoop.it
Oh, Twitter. You’re so useful for teachers. You connect educators so that they can share tools, tips and tricks, offer insight, and support one another. You bring your sexy social media-ness into the classroom to keep kids interested in what they’re learning when they think they’re actually (sort of) having fun instead.  That said, there …

50 Questions To Help Students Think About What They Think

50 Questions To Help Students Think About What They Think | E-learning & digital literacy | Scoop.it

Using the right questions creates powerful, sometimes multiple answers and discussions. Aristotle said that he asked questions in response to other people’s views, while Socrates focused on disciplined questioning to get to the truth of the matter.

Excellent way to get started teaching search skills. (I know there's no room in your curriculum to do this. Perhaps that's what's wrong with your curriculum?)

In 2013/14, I only used novels in English class and even then only to provide time away from a screen.  Every other class and activity used digital resources and engaged technology to find, sort, contextualize, and share information.   This is a very interesting infographic. 

Dyana Mason's curator insight, June 23, 11:06 PM

Digital devices are re-shaping the classroom. I've seen some new tools in action.  As educators, we should learn how students are using these new tools and adjust our teaching appropriately.

Dian J Harrison, MSW's curator insight, July 8, 8:09 PM

This definitely speaks to the support that older students will need to be successful in online programs!  For some of these students, the technology learning curve will be steep but doable....... especially if they are used to reading a book in print!
