13 Digital Research Tools For The Google Generation

13 Digital Research Tools For The Google Generation | Ed Tech and Leadership | Scoop.it

"This post is promoted by Noet, makers of Encyclopedia Britannica Noet Edition and the free research app for the classics, who asked us to talk about the credibility of information research in a digital world. We thought, then, that it might make sense to focus on digital tools and resources that highlight the idea of credibility."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 5, 2015 11:28 PM

Terry Heick makes it clear that this is a sponsored post and recommends 13 lessons and 13 tools that we may want to share with learners (and teachers) to help them gain a better understanding as to why research and credibility are important digital concepts. Below are several of the "lessons" that we need to understand.

* Not all sources are created equal.

* You can combine digital search with academic content.

* Question everything - even if you like the source.

* Want credibility? Cite your sources.

In addition to the 13 lessons there are also thirteen tools that are suggested, such as:

* EasyBib

* Summon (an alternative to Google Scholar)

* Zotero - a website that is free and allows you to "collect, organize, cite and share your research choices."

There is much more information in this post so take the time to click through...and think how nice it would be if our learners understood and embraced the 13 lessons.

How Serious Games Fit With Blooms Taxonomy | DesigningDigitally.com

How Serious Games Fit With Blooms Taxonomy | DesigningDigitally.com | Ed Tech and Leadership | Scoop.it

Blooms Taxonomy was developed in 1956 and was used to help classify the difficulty associated with questions asked during assessments, ultimately being transformed into a “system” for classifying various learning outcomes. But how do serious games tie in with Blooms Taxonomy?

In simple terms, the Blooms Taxonomy model is based around the idea that learning can be divided into three main areas - learning that is generating a skill, learning that is developing attitudes, and finally, learning that is transferring knowledge. These are referred to as “domains”, and more complicated “languages” can be used to capture each of these areas. They include:

Cognitive DomainAttitude DomainSkills Domain


Okay, so what about the “Taxonomy” part? Well, this isn’t too complicated either. It basically means the classification of something. To explain further, the Bloom’s model suggests that each individual learning type has a series of learning levels that should be considered when providing a serious game platform for learners.

6 questions determine if you're technology rich, innovation poor

6 questions determine if you're technology rich, innovation poor | Ed Tech and Leadership | Scoop.it

"If you answer no to all six questions when evaluating the design of assignments and student work, then chances are that technology is not really being applied in the most innovative ways. The questions we ask to evaluate implementation and define innovation are critical."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 16, 2015 10:01 PM

This post, by Alan November, ask six question that help districts help "clarify for educators the unique added value of a digital learning environment, and whether their assignments were making the best use of this environment.

November believes that innovation is critical, and shares his perspective that technology needs to move beyond the ability to function and move the school community (teachers, staff and students) to be more innovative, which requires that the "design of learning" that will lead to new levels of student achievement.

The six questions he raises are below:

1.  Did the assignment build capacity for critical thinking on the web?

2.  Did the assignment develop new lines of inquiry?

3.  Are there opportunities for students to make their thinking visible?

4.  Are there opportunities to broaden the perspective of the conversation with authentic audiences from around the world?

5.  Is there an opportunity for students to create a contribution (purposeful work)?

6.  Does the assignment demo “best in the world” examples of content and skill?

Additional information is included with each question in the post. How would you score your school or district?

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 2015 9:51 AM

Gifted education often talks about the twice-exceptional learner - one whose intellectual gifts are coupled and often masked by a learning disability.  There is also a phenomena of the gifted student who lives in a state of poverty.  Often trapped in a high poverty school that focuses on remediation and intervention.  Poverty schools must embrace a growth mindset about students, believing that every student can develop their gifts and talents.  They must differentiate the learning experiences that provide pathways for students to access deeper learning with complex thinking within the content.  This is a tall order for teachers who are burdened with learning gaps, behavior problems, and social issues...but with over 50% of our students living in poverty, we cannot afford to miss the development of the gifts and talents that lie buried under poverty.

The students of tomorrow will demand the curriculum of tomorrow. This statement engulfs the idea that education has to change with the times. What used to work, no longer does. We have to make some aggressive changes to education in order to support students in developing the skills that employers expect. I am privileged to work for  district that has many of these new technologies in place. There is a definite awareness in education that our instruction and pedagogies need to be adjusted or revamped to fit our learners needs. The constant news flashes are not new and we are on it folks!

Where Edtech Can Help: 10 Most Powerful Uses of Technology for Learning - InformED | Ed Tech and Leadership | Scoop.it

"Regardless of whether you think every infant needs an iPad, I think we can all agree that technology has changed education for the better. Today’s learners now enjoy easier, more efficient access to information; opportunities for extended and mobile learning; the ability to give and receive immediate feedback; and greater motivation to learn and engage.

We now have programs and platforms that can transform learners into globally active citizens, opening up countless avenues for communication and impact. Thousands of educational apps have been designed to enhance interest and participation. Course management systems and learning analytics have streamlined the education process and allowed for quality online delivery.

But if we had to pick the top ten, most influential ways technology has transformed education, what would the list look like? The following things have been identified by educational researchers and teachers alike as the most powerful uses of technology for learning. Take a look."
