How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | Foundations for Teacher Preparation | Scoop.it
Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.

12 Helpful Tools for Research and Citations - Graphite

12 Helpful Tools for Research and Citations - Graphite | Foundations for Teacher Preparation | Scoop.it

"There's no doubt the Internet opens up an enormous, ever-expanding world of resources when it comes to gathering information. But if well-founded, quality research is what you're after, the Internet is hit or miss. Don't get us wrong -- a good ol' Internet search is great to use as a guide when you're starting to research a topic. When you're writing a research paper, however, the paper will only be as strong as the sources cited. Since Web searches tend to pull up many results that have the potential to be far from credible, students need to break the "just google it" habit.


To steer them in the right direction, we've narrowed it down to 12 of the best tools for quality research and proper citations."

3 Ways To Use Vine In The Project-Based Learning Classroom | TeachThought

3 Ways To Use Vine In The Project-Based Learning Classroom | TeachThought | Foundations for Teacher Preparation | Scoop.it

"This deceptively simple application allows users to capture and share six-second video clips–rather than pure gif animations–through social media. This short window might sound like a detriment to some, but is actually what makes Vine such a powerful creative tool: Users must consider how they will capture, edit and share content in a way that conveys their intended messages. The results can be stunning, and in the right hands, surprisingly effective means of communication.

 

"This is precisely some teachers have adopted Vine as an educational tool, especially in the PBL classroom."

Open Education’s Publicity Problem – Chronicle of Higher Education

Open Education’s Publicity Problem – Chronicle of Higher Education | Foundations for Teacher Preparation | Scoop.it

"Open educational resources, or OER, are public-domain learning materials that instructors and students can use free instead of shelling out for textbooks. If you didn’t know that, you’re not alone: 66 percent of faculty members said they were “unaware” of OER, according to a recent survey by the Babson Survey Research Group."

Diana Petschauer's curator insight, April 12, 2013 9:09 AM

Excellent, free tool/ software for educators and students, as well as all individuals who may need an accessible format, or those who simply enjoy ebooks.

calibre can convert from a huge number of formats to a huge number of formats. It supports all the major e-book formats.  

The conversion engine has many features. It can rescale all font sizes, ensuring the output e-book is readable no matter what font sizes the input document uses. It can automatically detect/create book structure, like chapters and Table of Contents. It can insert the book metadata into a "Book Jacket" at the start of the book.

calibre can directly connect to all the major (and most of the minor) ebook reading devices, smarthphones, tablets, etc. In addition, using the Connect to folder function you can use it with any ebook reader that exports itself as a USB disk. You can even connect to Apple devices (via iTunes), using the Connect to iTunes function.

Thanks, dear Fabienne, this is really insightful.

In teaching one might want to progressively move from one level to the next, yet I would expect that one could work on all levels simultaneously.

How much more would children learn when they ask their 3-year-old, "What do you think ..."
