Great Prezi on making great Prezis 

Dave Wood's curator insight, April 18, 2014 3:41 PM

Some really useful tips about structuring information and the impactful use of visuals.  I haven't been a huge fan of Prezi because they can be just too "busy" and disorientating when they incorporate too much spin as they move from image to image. These tips give good advice about how to keep it simple for best effect.

I've used Prezi as a way of presenting the notes from a visual group coaching session back to the participants.

25 Teaching Tools To Organize, Innovate, & Manage Your Classroom

25 Teaching Tools To Organize, Innovate, & Manage Your Classroom | e-learning for Slam Dunks | Scoop.it

"Over the years, many of us have personally experienced the growth of technology in today’s classrooms. Instead of taking notes, students are now occupied by surfing the Internet, scrolling through Facebook, and messaging their friends on their smart phones, tablets, and laptops. Instead of focusing on the instruction, teachers are constantly required to interrupt class in order to remind those students again and again, that class time is for learning, not texting. However, as today’s students are using more technological devices, it is imperative that teachers have access to the resources to keep pace with the growing tech culture."

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area | e-learning for Slam Dunks | Scoop.it

"Reading is reading. By understanding that letters make sounds, we can blend those sounds together to make whole sounds that symbolize meaning we can all exchange with one another.

Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does.

Science content can often by full of jargon, research citations, and odd text features.

Social Studies content can be an interesting mix of itemized information, and traditional paragraphs/imagery..."

It is free and you can create a classroom account and also assign articles to be read. Some (but not all) of the articles have quizzes attached that ask questions based on Common Core and you will be able to see the results. Questions are different for each reading lexile.

* EdWeb is a professional and social networking that provides a wealth of resources including free webinars. It is a great tool to help improve teaching and learning.

How do we get students to conduct inquiry-driven research where they cannot easily Google the answer? This post provides a look at how to teach teenagers by using questions that do not have an easy answer, specifically "Who is more popular, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, or Beyoncé?" It does not have a clear cut answer and requires that you look at trends. A description of what this question led to is provided and it shows that answering this question leads to a range of resources that students must also look at and evaluate.

But what about younger students? Two suggestions are made that will help you start thinking about how to do this and engage younger students in conducting inquiry-driven research. For more information on this click through to the post.
