Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 3, 7:32 PM

Do you know how to provide meaningful feedback to your students. This post in Edutopia provides five suggestions, all of which are included in the illustration above (located here).

What are the suggestions?

* Be as specific as possible

* The sooner the better

* Address the learner's advancement toward a goal

* Present feedback carefully

* Involve learners in the process

Additional information on these five suggestions are in the post.

Mary Starry's curator insight, September 14, 4:38 PM

The role of immediate, meaningful feedback must also be incorporated into the active learning environment.

25 Next Gen Tools for the Inquiry Classroom

25 Next Gen Tools for the Inquiry Classroom | EEB426 Becoming a Professional teacher | Scoop.it

"Next gen tools provide meaningful ways teachers and students can explore, question, reflect and share–leading to Deeper Learning and blended and personalized opportunities for students. Here are 25 ideas for using next gen tools this year in your classroom."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 3, 6:44 PM

Why would we want to use next gen tools in our classroom? One reason is they provide a richer experience for our students, richer content, potentially richer discussions, and more as well as the fact that these tools are often multi-disciplinary and multi-sensory.

The 25 tools listed here address large parts of the curriculum as well as grade levels. Five are listed below. Click through to the post to learn more about them and twenty more.

* PBS for Educators has many resources available. This post highlights three specifically: Point of View (which is geared to older students); SCI Girls (think STEM); and Daily News Story (as you probably guessed we are talking current events).

* Big History Project goal is to develop a full curriculum for high school. At this point they have four key areas: the universe, or solar system and Earth, Life and Humans, with a total of seven "threshholds."

* Do you want your students to publish work online? Consider checking out EduBlog, KidBlog and Blogger?

Have fun exploring and teach your students (and yourself) some next gen tools!

Tony Guzman's curator insight, September 4, 6:43 AM

"Reading Rockets shares that "A concept map is a visual organizer that can enrich students' understanding of a new concept. Using a graphic organizer, students think about the concept in several ways. Most concept map organizers engage students in answering questions such as, "What is it? What is it like? What are some examples?" Concept maps deepen understanding and comprehension."Cast reports: "There is solid evidence for the effectiveness of graphic organizers in facilitating learning." A summary of this finding is that, "When looking across 23 different studies they found a consistent effect on comprehension."
