Here's a bit of online facilitation wisdom: "The Two-Question Rule: This means to follow a question with another question that probes for deeper understanding."


Author/Blogger Professor Maurice Elias does a fine job of explaining how questioning helps deepen thinking.

Developed at University of Michigan with NSF funding, this App has lots of potential uses in classrooms. It's a great scaffolding tool for helping students develop claims from evidence and selecting evidence from data to support it.

New Bloom's Taxonomy Sheet with Over 80 Web Tools to Try Out

New Bloom's Taxonomy Sheet with Over 80 Web Tools to Try Out | inquiry | Scoop.it
Bloom's Taxonomy Tools is a Google document created by NJ superintendent Scott Rocco and it features a list of 89 web tools and mobile apps that correspond with every thinking level of Bloom's taxonomy. This work is a collective effort from different teachers and educators who have come together and crowdsourced ideas and tools to help teachers make the best of  Bloom's digital taxonomy in their instruction. As you can see below, the document features five columns: one for the name of the app, the other specifies the level of Bloom's taxonomy the app addresses, the third column is for links of the apps, the fourth  is on what the app does and the last one captures some ideas on how the app can be used. I invite you to have a look and contribute with an app or tool to the list. Enjoy

Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought

Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought | inquiry | Scoop.it

"Reading is just the communication of ideas through alphanumeric symbols. I’m not sure what this represents such hallowed ground for teachers, but it does. Personally I’d be more concerned with reading habits, reasons for reading, the quality of reading materials, etc. Symbols change, forms change, media change. See the gif animations that demonstrate how a student feels when “bae won’t respond to them.” This is your audience, and these are the symbols they gravitate towards.

 

In the apps-for-close-reading post, I said that this “interaction” between reader and text during close reading “doesn’t require technology, but can be changed by it.” So it made sense, I thought, to guess at some ways this happens. Or should be happening, anyway.

 

With more personalization, more access, and more connectivity, we should be creating a generation of close-readers that can’t get enough. So if we’re not, the question is, why isn’t that happening? The pieces are there."
