How Does Writing Affect Your Brain? [infographic] | Education with tic | Scoop.it
According to today’s infographic, writing can serve as a calming, meditative tool. Stream of conscious writing exercises, in particular, have been identified as helpful stress coping methods. Keeping a journal, for example, or trying out free-writing exercises, can drastically reduce your levels of stress.

8 Strategies To Help Students Ask Great Questions

8 Strategies To Help Students Ask Great Questions | Education with tic | Scoop.it

"Questions can be extraordinary learning tools.

A good question can open minds, shift paradigms, and force the uncomfortable but transformational cognitive dissonance that can help create thinkers. In education, we tend to value a student’s ability to answer our questions. But what might be more important is their ability to ask their own great questions–and more critically, their willingness to do so."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 15, 11:05 PM

How do you teach your learners to ask good questions? This post shares many resources to help you learn new skills that will assist you in teaching others.

The post begins with a visual, the Teach Thought Learning Taxonomy, which is a template for critical thinking that looks at cognition across six categories. This is described in depth.

Additional tools shared include:

* Socratic Discussion which includes a video from Tch (the Teaching Channel)

* Paideia Seminar - "an integrated literacy event built around formal whole class dialogue. The purpose for doing Paideia Seminar is to support students’ ability to think conceptually and communicate collaboratively." There is also a video.

* The Question Game (which was shared previously on this Scoop.it)

* Bloom's Taxonomy

* Question Formation Technique - See the visual at the top, or check out their website at The Right Question Institute. If this is of interest to you they are presenting a workshop in Boston in July. Information on this is available at their website.

* Universal Question Stems and Basic Question Stem Examples

This is actually part 2 of a two part post. The first post is A Guide to Questioning in the Classroom.

#avancee e a revolucao  em aprendizagem que é ignorada por aqui.

21 praticas que todo educador do seculo XXI deveria fazer para manter a sanidade mental :D


Fato é, que algumas praticas, como encorajar a democracia na sala de aula por meio da discussão moderada,  são milenares e ainda muito dificil de serem adotadas com uma comunicacao nao violenta em diversos aspectos.

Quiçá as recomendações sobre video, posts, fotos, etc...

Sei que alguns educadores tem se empenhado para traduzir as angustias da geracao do seculo XXI, mas o movimento ainda é timido e mereceria ganhar um apoio publico.

* Safety - is this a site that is appropriate for students or may there be cause for concern

The post then splits the list into a variety of areas:
* Search Engines

* Large Crowdsourced Collections

* U.S. Government Collections

* Unique Collections, including

   -  Getty

   -  Pixabay

   - and approximately 20 more sites

The Powerful Impact of Social Sharing & Content Marketing [Infographic]

The Powerful Impact of Social Sharing & Content Marketing [Infographic] | Education with tic | Scoop.it

How many marketers can pin down the impact of social media using hard numbers?

The following infographic, based largely on results from the Demand Gen Report 2013 B2B Content Preferences Survey and 2012 B2B Buyer Survey shows data to help answer that very important question.

Promoting content over social networks is now a vital part of getting a message in front of potential buyers, establishing thought leadership and making the most of content investments. That means understanding which social media channels are most appropriate for different campaigns, and it definitely means understanding how to optimize different types of content for your social campaigns.

Are Existing Tech Tools Effective for Teachers and Students?

Are Existing Tech Tools Effective for Teachers and Students? | Education with tic | Scoop.it
The Gates Foundation released a report today surveying teachers and students on the kinds of digital tools they'd like to see available in classrooms.

Via Beth Dichter

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 24, 2014 9:19 PM

This report focused on four questions:

What do teachers want and need from digital instructional tools?

How can product developers use this information to more effectively serve students, teachers, and schools?

What do we know about how teachers and districts select and purchase digital instructional tools?

What do we know about the overall market for digital instructional tools?

The report identified six instructional purposes for technology, moving from teacher-driven to student-driven and identify both a primary and a secondary benefit. The areas are:

● Deliver Instruction

● Diagnose Student Learning

● Vary Delivery Method

● Tailer Learning Experience

● Support Student Collaboration and Interactivity

● Foster Independent Practice

One piece that pops out quickly is that 54% of teachers surveyed did not find the digital tools they use effective.

Click here for the full report [PDF]

KCenter SKEMA's curator insight, April 25, 2014 4:53 AM

"The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation just released a report detailing the results of 3,100 teacher surveys and 1,250 student surveys on the kinds of digital instruction tools that are useful and effective. The foundation has asked teachers and students what they need when it comes to digital instruction, aiming to close the communication gap between commercial developers and schools.

One of the biggest takeaways is that most teachers — 54 percent — don’t find many of the digital tools they use effective. That’s partly because teachers often aren’t making purchasing decisions. When they do have a say in tool selection they often report on its effectiveness more favorably. When asked about free products, teachers reported that free products are just as likely to be effective as the products the district purchased for them."

Now that reading online involves a bevy of social actions, from sharing to commenting across a plethora of devices, how many of your site’s readers will make it past the first paragraph?.

Recently Slate's technology columnist investigated this issue further in his article You Won’t Finish This Article. Using data from Chartbeat, he found that most readers don’t engage with the article, and if they do, they are inclined to do so before scrolling half-way down the page.

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.


Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.
