Nice collection of infographic tools from an expert in digital curation.

 

David Baker's curator insight, April 3, 8:47 AM

I am adding this to my seminar resources. Having another set of tools for my teachers to create their PIE Infographics is important.  Creating visual representations of learning is such a powerful learning for teachers and is a skill they can transfer to their classroom and for students to create in the classroom.

"It's hard to contain my excitement and enthusiasm when it comes to Guided Reading and having a 1:1 classroom. Mastery of district curriculum and essential objectives is what it is all about. I now have unlimited opportunities for students in my classroom.  Our guided reading block is every afternoon for an hour.  Differentiation of instruction, individualized and small group instruction, and student engagement happens at its best on a daily basis! I feel I am meeting all students' instructional needs each day."

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | EFL teacher | Scoop.it

"Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section .

As you can see, the wheel outlines a wide variety of verbs and activities related to each thinking level of Blooms taxonomy coupled with iPad apps that go with it. These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Enjoy"

Check the apps you use against this taxonomy.  What level do you personally spend a lot of your time at?  What level can you push your students to try?

This could be useful resource to connect the old Bloom's taxonomy to new resources out there on the iPad. And a nice visual to boot.

"This picture was drawn in response to a post called 'Drawing On A Napkin: Is This How iPads Function In A Traditional Classroom?' by the esteemed Terry Heick.

 

Mine was not drawn on a napkin, but on Notability. And, to answer that snarky Johannesburg based iPad trainer who cannot believe I can do what I do using the iPad, yes I did create it myself!

 

This is what I think iPads are 'for' in education. Let me know what you think."

10 Teacher Resources For Lesson Planning Templates & Tools - TeachThought

10 Teacher Resources For Lesson Planning Templates & Tools - TeachThought | EFL teacher | Scoop.it

"Lesson plans can play a vital role in simplifying a teacher’s job, and also can ensure that classes are conducted in a seamless and efficient manner. A good lesson plan can be a great way for teachers to organize activities, highlight areas of focus, experiment with different ideas, and set goals for student achievement. With effective lesson planning, teachers can have a solid diagram to follow in order to stay organized and ensure student success.

 

However, a quality lesson requires time, commitment, and creativity to create. Unfortunately, time is not a luxury that teachers possess; as they already have enough on their plate in addition to the time and focus needed to produce a customized lesson design."
