The 8 Mind Frames of Teachers Who Impact Student Learning - FRACTUS LEARNING

The 8 Mind Frames of Teachers Who Impact Student Learning - FRACTUS LEARNING | Education | Scoop.it
In 2008 Professor John Hattie undertook the largest ever meta-analysis on the effect of different factors on educational outcomes. The results of this study formed the basis for his hugely popular book Visible Learning and the educator focused Visible Learning for Teachers. A fascinating study with many practical applications, Hattie was able to show that school leaders who develop the below 8 mind frames were more likely to have a major impact on student learning.

5 Tools To Help Create A Paperless Book Club - Edudemic

5 Tools To Help Create A Paperless Book Club - Edudemic | Education | Scoop.it

"A class set of novels, binders, poster boards, and enough post-it notes to wallpaper a school…. all supplies associated with a traditional middle school book club model. With the addition of iPads, Google Apps, and other educational technology, the age of the “traditional” book club requires a change.

 

Digital book clubs allow for connected, flexible, and customized literacy instruction that engages all learners. From reading digital novels, to participating in online discussions, and annotating text with categorical tags to expressing ideas through transliteracy (multi-media tools), students will interact with the text, the teacher, and each other while receiving nearly instant, trackable feedback on their work. You can use technology to reinforce effective comprehension strategies while upgrading the literary climate of your classroom by following these 5 steps to revolutionize your classroom book clubs."

The follow applications assist students with learning difficulties in literacy to read. Implementing digital technologies in learning areas such as English allows special education teachers to facilitate and accommodate the learning needs of students.This is achieved through integrating assistive devices such as the iPad and its applications to develop critical literacy skills needed in the 21st century.  Consequently special education teachers have a better opportunity to develop important General capabilities such as literacy (LIT) to allows student to become literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school and for participating effectively in society (ACARA, 2013).

Choral Reading | Classroom Strategies | Reading Rockets | Education | Scoop.it

Choral reading is reading aloud in unison with a whole class or group of students. Choral reading helps build students' fluency, self-confidence, and motivation. Because students are reading aloud together, students who may ordinarily feel self-conscious or nervous about reading aloud have built-in support.

Interesting insight into how iPads are being used in schools and the impact they are making both positive and negative. I challenge teachers to look at this article and identify all the different teaching and learning ideas there are and how they could apply or adapt them in their classrooms.

The Difference Between Inference & Prediction

 

Reading comprehension is a core tenet of schooling. The new Common Core Standards in the United States pace an increasing emphasis on reading, requiring for it to be taught across content areas, rather than simply in English-Language Arts classes. (Or through Reading comprehension apps, for example.)

Knowing the difference and where they fall on the comprehension continuum is important for how to scaffold student learning.
