Crickets add crunch and protein to dishes, easy on environment

Crickets add crunch and protein to dishes, easy on environment | Education | Scoop.it
If you’re still going “yuck” at the thought of eating insects, please haul yourself into this century. Not only have folks from Thailand to Tanzania been snacking on crickets, mealworms and caterpillars for quite some time, renowned chefs from Copenhagen’s Rene Redzeppi (of Noma fame) to Canada’s own Rene Rodriguez (the Ottawa winner of last season’s Top Chef Canada) have lately been including the crunchy creatures in top-notch dishes.

I love this very clear "before and after" set of examples to help us more fully understand the nuances of a student-centered classroom. I think school libraries have been a model of this behavior for years but if you're talking to teachers about how to make the change, this article would be an excellent start.

Try Creating Comics to Get Students to Share Stories About Themselves - iPad Apps for School

Try Creating Comics to Get Students to Share Stories About Themselves  - iPad Apps for School | Education | Scoop.it

"I shared this idea on Free Technology for Teachers earlier today and I’m sharing it here to bring an iPad slant to it. At the beginning of the new school year it can take a while for new students to open up to each other and to you. One way to get them to share stories about themselves is to have them put it into a fun comic story. Through creating comic stories you can have students share favorite stories from their summer vacations. In the process students learn how to use a new tool, practice developing storylines, and they let you in on a little bit of who they are as people. Here are three iPad apps that I like to use to create comic stories."
