Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

Video: The Power of One Teacher’s Vision for the Student-Centered Classroom | Education Technology Telford | Scoop.it

"Ananth Pai is a masterful educator, who runs a dynamic, student-centered classroom humming with activity — what we imagine as the best-case scenario for blended learning. Pai has created individual learning plans for each of his students, which includes time with him, with other kids, and with online games. And though his students have shown exponential growth in achievement, Pai is frustrated that his successful tactics haven’t been acknowledged or applied outside his class."

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers | Education Technology Telford | Scoop.it

Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again.

An ever more important one that ALL teachers need to be aware of is digital literacy.
