Flipped classroom <>flipped school library

Flipped classroom <>flipped school library | Informational Literarcy | Scoop.it

Flipping the classroom changes the place in which content is delivered. If the teacher assigns lecture-type, frontal instruction–in the form of video, simulations, slidecasts, readings, podcasts–as homework, then class time can be used interactively. The class becomes conversation space, creation space, space where teachers actively facilitate learning.

Flipping frees face-to-face classroom time for interactive and applied learning, activities that inspire critical thinking, exploration, inquiry, discussion, collaboration, problem solving.  So, the classroom and the library become more learner-centered.

The 2 Hottest Educational Social Networks You’re Not Yet Using

The 2 Hottest Educational Social Networks You’re Not Yet Using | Informational Literarcy | Scoop.it

The overarching theme now of Learnist and Lore (aside from the first letter of the names) is that these sites are designed to function just like the most popular social networks in the world … except they were built just for teachers and students. To me, that says that it’s a very exciting time in edtech as companies are able to finally leverage the resources and data from the Facebooks and Blackboards of the world … then turning this into a very useful new tool that can be completely tailored to the education audience.

 

No longer will teachers, students, and administrators hope to fit their square peg (education needs) into a round hole (whatever Facebook offers). We can all now look forward to more and more dedicated tools that are robust enough to perhaps completely replace Facebook or other major social networks.

Stay tuned.

80 Educational Alternatives to YouTube

80 Educational Alternatives to YouTube | Informational Literarcy | Scoop.it

Kids learn best when they see how things work, when, where and why they happen. Watching educational videos is a great way to learn because it allows kids to build a visual picture or model in their mind. The visual dimension not only helps them understand concepts better but also stimulates curiosity and encourages self-training.
