Very cool idea to share with teachers. This would be a great activity to do with ELA classes for a whole-group novel or for lit circle members. Enjoy!

10 More Digital Citizenship Resources: The Web in the Classroom…Part 4 | Education | Scoop.it
In the last three posts I have been providing  ideas and reflection regarding the use of the internet in the classroom. You can explore these posts in the links that follow this paragraph.

As promised I have ten more digital citizenship resources to add to the ten that were included in the last post. I do hope you find these links beneficial for student of all ages. If the facilitation of digital citizenship is not part of your district or schools curriculum… now is the time to include it. It really is a great way to assist students as they discover the wealth of learning experiences available on the worldwide web.   Enjoy exploring and sharing all of the resources, and come back for the next post providing even more! Also, feel free to explore the past three posts of this series in the immediate links below.

Effectivement une idée pour avoir des vidéos annotés.

This looks like a great way to create a video library and take notes and interact around the videos. Great tool if you are using blended learning or trying out a flipped apprach.

The Nerdy Teacher: Making Is Not Just For STEM #MakerEd

The Nerdy Teacher: Making Is Not Just For STEM #MakerEd | Education | Scoop.it
I'm an English teacher and I'm building a Makerspace. Since October, I've been raising funds and working out deals to put in a Makerspace in our school library. I've been working with our Media Specialist to make this happen and I've had wonderful support from our admin staff. We are close to having a completed space and have chosen to call it the Blue Devil Maker's Lounge. I had a chance to take my Freshmen down to the space to show it off and share with the students what will be possible in the space. While a bit stressful, the Maker's Lounge has been a great project where I have learned many different things from friends across the country and right at home in Michigan. However, there has been some skepticism.

 We are woking on creating makerspaces in our library this year, initially for ICT but also as a club. I am hoping once things are going strong, our kids will drive the learning and other teachers will get to see first hwnd, how powerful that can be.

12 Unexpected Ways to Use LEGO in the Classroom | Edudemic

12 Unexpected Ways to Use LEGO in the Classroom | Edudemic | Education | Scoop.it
The idea that students can learn something valuable from play isn’t new, or even controversial. A sizeable body of research has been conducted to back up what many teachers already knew to be true.  Fun and learning don’t have to be mutually exclusive, and it really works better for everyone involved when they’re not.

As such, making LEGO Bricks part of your lesson plan can help you teach concepts that students might otherwise find tedious, in a way that doesn’t feel like work to them. Many educators have already been putting this idea to the test with success. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, November 27, 2015 8:19 AM

The legacy of Legos is amazing - so many children had developed concepts and skills through the construction and creativity of Legos. From my perspective, they ABSOLUTELY belong in every classroom - and every home. Play IS Learning.

Valuable #Lessons from My First #Makerspace Year | Knowledge Quest @DianaLRendina

Valuable #Lessons from My First #Makerspace Year | Knowledge Quest @DianaLRendina | Education | Scoop.it
When I first started my makerspace at Stewart Middle Magnet School back in January of 2014, I was figuring everything out as I went along.  The term was still brand new, I couldn’t find any maker sessions at conferences, and there were only a handful of other school libraries sharing about their makerspaces.  Armed with a couple of books on the growing Maker Education Movement and a dream to create an engaging environment in my library,  I gathered some supplies, put them out there, and waited to see what would happen.  My ideas and philosophy were constantly growing and evolving as we tried new activities and formats at my school.  Some experiments worked; some failed miserably.  But I learned from each and every one as our makerspace grew into an integral part of our library culture.  Looking back on the last year and a half, I’ve realized that there’s several essential lessons I’ve learned in getting our makerspace going. Hopefully they can help save you some stress (and reassure you that everything will be awesome).

40 Maps That Explain The Middle East

40 Maps That Explain The Middle East | Education | Scoop.it
These maps are crucial for understanding the region's history, its present, and some of the most important stories there today.

Lora Tortolani's curator insight, March 15, 2015 8:47 PM

It is interesting to see the same trends over and over again.  These maps are a great tool to show the history of the area, as well as the history of religion and political views.  I appreciate the information provided since the Middle East has undergone the most transitions (going all the way back to Mesopotamia) and its history can be confusing. 

Alex Vielman's curator insight, November 23, 2015 3:17 PM

Maps like the ones posted in this article, really helps people to understand and break down deeply of understanding the entire region as a whole. Visualization is very important in geography when trying to understand the region people are talking about. this region as goes down to the Mesopotamia Era. It is important to know, how the culture was in this area to how it differentiated during the Ottoman Empire. During the first couple of maps, we can begin to see the division of the entire region. As you go on, we begin to notice the divisions between people, religion, language between states and in-states. There is so much information to know about the Middle East region and it may be even harder to understand due to the tons of changes and separations, but it is important to understand these divisions like the Sunni's and the Shi'ites in order to fully explain the development and the current situations that are occurring in this region as we speak. 

Matt Ramsdell's curator insight, December 7, 2015 5:18 PM

These 40 maps are a very interesting way of showing how people have traveled around and moved about the Earth from the time of the fertile crescent era to the people of today. It shows us the paths that people have taken to move to a new location. How they used the Meditteranean Sea to move from one side to the other. It also shows how the Tigris and Euphrates came together to form a smaller area of the Persian gulf. This led to smalled economic growth because now there is less land for imports and exports.
