Wordament

Wordament® is a unique and highly addictive word game: a two-minute long word tournament where you compete in real-time, on the same board, against everyone else currently playing. 


You are playing the exact same game with hundreds around the world at the same time. Every time a new game starts – that game is being presented to everyone. After every game your stats show up and shortly after you are compared to every player in the world that played along side of you.

Test and Assess – be a curator!

Test and Assess – be a curator! | Ed-Tech Trends | Scoop.it
A key component to this process, which is tied directly into active assessment strategies, is synthesizing or making sense of the information gathered. Sense making can be writing a blog post using the links (like this post) or summarizing the key points in a presentation. Gathering and collecting specific content points is the beginning, and creating the theme is where an individual demonstrates their analysis and evaluation of the content included in a post or presentation shared. Kanter wrote, “Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.”   

Via Dennis T OConnor
Bronwyn Desjardins's insight:

I agree. Education used to be about finding the information. With potential access to everything now, the focus should be on making sense of it and finding connections, drawing correlations and making conclusions - to become thinkers.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, December 27, 2012 1:15 PM

This article will help you understand how curating relates to both Bloom's taxonomy and the Engagement Pyramid proposed by Charlene Li and Jeremiah Owyang.


For those who must plan to standards, this article will give you great theoretical backing for teaching and using curation in your classroom.
