These are great sites to add to a bank of creative commons image sites.  All book or class projects need to use creative commons as the baseline of their projects.

The Lowdown on Longhand: How Writing by Hand Benefits the Brain

The Lowdown on Longhand: How Writing by Hand Benefits the Brain | Embracing secondary ELA | Scoop.it
Studies show that note-taking with pen or pencil is critical to processing and representing information, something that students lose when tapping on a keyboard.

Via Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.
Jennifer Gandarias's insight:

This is a question that has been on my hand recently since multiple studies show the importance of handwriting.  My students write by hand in daily journals and rough drafts of essays; though most write with a stylized printing.  When I write on the board in cursive many students cannot read what I have written. It is interesting, as I taught many of these same students during there elementary years when cursive was important.  Now I run a flipped English class where so much of the work is digital.  I wonder if I use enough handwriting?

Good reason to vary the way students interact with new information. Just because they have an electronic device doesn't mean they should never write longhand.

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | Embracing secondary ELA | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: Know students who are struggling in school? Catalyst Learning Network can help. | Embracing secondary ELA | Scoop.it
While it’s not uncommon to hear students say “I hate school,” some are really suffering and desperately want out.

I can relate. 

I became an educator not because I loved school, but because I was bored and miserable in school. I wanted to figure out how to change that for others. I started this blog to share ideas about how to do  that.  

Like my own experience, many students today are bored and disengaged for many hours each day, despite the best efforts of their teachers and parents to try to help them make the most of school. Many are depressed. They feel a complete lack of control over their lives, and have a bleak view of the future.

Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, February 15, 2015 3:26 PM

The solution for education is that schools disappear? Well no longer an option, but what I see most viable and relevant is that the school (Students, Teachers and Parents) are processed. Some may say, that is not possible need help from outside, I replied already hit bottom and from inside the school is feasible to begin the transformation.

Audrey's curator insight, January 4, 2015 6:05 PM

You activate many areas of your brain when you tell a story.  There are so many areas in education where students can use stories to remember details of information needed for writing  exam answers.  Stories are visual,  can be auditory; you can introduce smells and engage with whatever you are writing about. 

 

The whole brain becomes stimulated with a person's own  record of the information.  How can you forget?
