Fullof great ideas..something to think about doing. Now on my list!

Joycelyn DeVore's curator insight, February 4, 2015 9:22 PM

So many people are on Pinterest, that it only makes since that teachers and librarians try to use these resources. This article talks about how to use Pinterest to organize information, so that is can easily be found by students, and since it is through a site most teens use, its an engaging tool.

Smart Strategies That Help Students Learn How to Learn

Smart Strategies That Help Students Learn How to Learn | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Teaching students good learning strategies would ensure that they know how to acquire new knowledge, which leads to improved learning outcomes, writes lead author Helen Askell-Williams of Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia. And studies bear this out. Askell-Williams cites as one example a recent finding by PISA, the Programme for International Student Assessment, which administers academic proficiency tests to students around the globe, and place American students in the mediocre middle. “Students who use appropriate strategies to understand and remember what they read, such as underlining important parts of the texts or discussing what they read with other people, perform at least 73 points higher in the PISA assessment—that is, one full proficiency level or nearly two full school years—than students who use these strategies the least,” the PISA report reads.

New Media Literacy: What Students Need to Know About Fake News

New Media Literacy: What Students Need to Know About Fake News | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Sometimes it seems as if educators can’t take on one more responsibility, and yet the scourge of fake news is not something that we can ignore. If we are to help our students to become critical and independent thinkers and responsible citizens, we need to empower them with the tools to take on fake news and other manipulative media.

How technology in the classroom is changing everyday tasks

How technology in the classroom is changing everyday tasks | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
As we move into the digital world, some of our everyday teacher tasks become easier and easier. The hours that we spent grading papers, creating lesson plans by hand, and organizing all of our paperwork is coming to an end. Today, many educators are moving towards using handy, and extremely convenient technology in the classroom tools that are changing teacher’s lives forever. But, with so many apps and technology in the classroom tools out there, where do we start? Here a few apps that are changing the way educators use technology in the classroom to complete their daily tasks.

Over the years I've shared many video clips featuring Hans Rosling and the Gapminder resources (click here for archived links).  For many this is going to but a rehash of previous videos, but this in the 1-hour long version of global population data (2016 Population Reference Bureau).  Clearly he is a proponent of lowering fertility rates--here he paints the optimistic view that population growth growth and development can be balanced in a future that is more ecologically and economically sustainable.

16 Ideas for Student Projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms

16 Ideas for Student Projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
As you probably know, Google Drive is far more than a place to store files online. It also includes a suite of versatile creation tools, many of which perform the same functions as the ones we use in other spaces. These include Google Docs, a word processing program that behaves similarly to Microsoft Word, Google Slides, a presentation program similar to PowerPoint, and Google Forms, a survey-creation tool similar to Survey Monkey. Although Drive also includes other tools, these three are particularly useful for creating rigorous, academically robust projects. If your school uses Google Classroom or at least gives students access to Google Drive, your students are probably already using these tools to write papers or create slideshow presentations, but there are other projects they could be doing that you may not have thought of.

Below I have listed 16 great ideas for projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms. (If you and your students want to learn more about how to use these apps, check out my Google Drive Basics course; more info at the end of this post!)

Some of these tools would be awesome to use with students for social emotional learning. The choose your own adventure idea would be great to teach about consequences. Creating the story would lead to rich discussions. The blogging feature might be nice for journaling.  What if students could tell their story in the format of a magazine? These tools allow for unlimited options for self-expression and socio-emotional learning.

The Elementary Math Maniac: Memorizing Facts Versus Knowing Facts From Memory

The Elementary Math Maniac: Memorizing Facts Versus Knowing Facts From Memory | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
I still focus on fluency with multiplication facts in fourth grade but fluency has a completely different meaning to me now. The way I work on fluency now does not involve timed tests. It does not involve kids being anxious or feeling unsuccessful at math. Instead I focus on developing number sense which helps kids learn and remember strategies that make them fluent with their multiplication facts. To the untrained eye, it often appears as if my fourth graders have memorized their facts when they actually know their facts from memory.
