Sentence stems will help you engage students in conversations that stimulate higher order thinking. 

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, March 12, 2014 3:34 PM

At each stage of the inquiry process these stem questions will apply. Add in the action verbs from Blooms Taxonomy and you will definitely create a dynamic learning environment. 

Jan Watts's curator insight, March 16, 2014 7:48 PM

Really useful tools for discussion - and not just in classrooms? Meetings, Board rooms, Parliament.....you name it!

Facebook's flirtation with democracy has come to an end. If it wants to, the social network can now change its policies without user approval.

Inanimate Alice: a cross-platform educational project

Inanimate Alice: a cross-platform educational project | Goodreads & Infobits | Scoop.it

Considered as a revolution in the “book publishing” industry, Inanimate Alice is a multiplatform immersive project. Often presented as transmedia, mostly thanks to its interactivity and multimedia use, Inanimate Alice is an interesting case of storytelling usage.

Twitterature

Twitterature | Goodreads & Infobits | Scoop.it

El libro Twitterature - The World's Greatest Books in Twenty Tweets or Less no ha sido desde luego de los más aplauidos últimamente, pero su título nos da una idea sobre qué vamos a encontrarnos si lo abrimos, y no es otra cosa que mezclar la red social Twitter y la Literatura.

En este caso se refiere la mezcla fundamentalmente a los clásicos, ya que los títulos que cubre el libro en Tweets son en su mayoría clásicos, por lo que muchos ya le han pedido perdón a los grandes autores como Shakepeare o Joyce, pero de este blending tampoco se libra la serie de Harry Potter.

The Death of the Book | Book View Cafe Blog

The Death of the Book | Book View Cafe Blog | Goodreads & Infobits | Scoop.it

Book View Cafe Blog -... " At the moment, the computer generation has shortened to about the life span of the gerbil, and might yet rival the fruitfly.

The life span of a book is more like that of the horse, or the human being, sometimes the oak, even the redwood. Which is why it seems a good idea, rather than mourning their death, to rejoice that books now have two ways of staying alive, getting passed on, enduring, instead of only one.
