Gebruik je iPads in jouw klas? Dan zijn deze posters wellicht handig om te gebruiken. Je moet ze natuurlijk wel eerst even vertalen in het Nederlands.

How to move your iPhone and iPad backups to an external drive -iMore | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it

"If you sync your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on your Mac, you know that the first thing iTunes does is back it up (unless you've told it not to). Depending on the size of your device and how much data you have stored on it, this can gobble up dozens of gigabytes of space. Did you know you can move those backups to an external hard drive? You can, and we can walk you through how. "

How One Teacher Achieved Insane Reading Growth Last Year (EdSurge News)

How One Teacher Achieved Insane Reading Growth Last Year (EdSurge News) | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it

by Matt Bowman

 

"Tracy Fischetti's high school students improved their reading level scores about three times as much as expected last year, according to the state’s 2013 test scores.

 

"Of all the English teachers in Florida, she scored the highest on the state's Value Added Measure (VAM). Interestingly, Fischetti had no idea of her distinction until I emailed her in early March. "I am not sure how you would have gotten wind of my classroom chaos in California," she wrote. The metric isn't viewed positively in her district.

 

"I'm sure many readers' jaws clench at the mention of VAM Scores. I'm going to sidestep that controversy for this post except to note that, inadequate as test scores are for assessing educational quality, they're not a bad starting point to discover promising practices. No matter what you think of VAM, Fischetti and her students have accomplished something impressive, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the time she took to share her approach with me.

 

"There are three practices that Fischetti employs consistently that seem to account for a lot of her success".
