Henry A. Giroux | When Schools Become Dead Zones of the Imagination: A Critical Pedagogy Manifesto

Henry A. Giroux | When Schools Become Dead Zones of the Imagination: A Critical Pedagogy Manifesto | Teaching -ESL | Scoop.it

If the right-wing billionaires and apostles of corporate power have their way, public schools will become “dead zones of the imagination,” reduced to anti-public spaces that wage an assault on critical thinking, civic literacy and historical memory.1 Since the 1980s, schools have increasingly become testing hubs that de-skill teachers and disempower students.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | Teaching -ESL | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.

Edutech for Teachers » Blog Archive » Guest Post: Top 5 Free Ipad Apps to Use in the Classroom | Teaching -ESL | Scoop.it

"Making use of free iPad apps in the classroom can enable you to diversify your teaching, while providing the opportunity to inspire and get students more engaged in lessons. There  are many different educational apps available, which range from apps like Evernote that allow you to organize your teaching materials, through to interactive whiteboards from Educreations, and Screen Chomp, a screen recording app that can be very useful for teaching lessons on the go.

Evernote was highlighted in a technology workshop at the MMEA conference.  Recommended organizational tool.  Presenter cautioned against using Evernote for organizing pictures.  He was not able to access his wedding pictures after he loaded them into Evernote!
