Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 7, 11:55 PM

At times many of us feel like knocking our heads against the wall when a student hands in work that is plagiarized. This post includes eight GoAnimate videos that discuss plagiarism, from the view of the teacher and the students. Sharing them with staff at your school, or with the students, would promote discussion.

Joyce Valenza has embedded the videos into her post, and also provides a link to a Google presentation as well as a link to a video (on YouTube) which is the actual presentation.

The school year may be winding down, but plagiarism is here to stay. Take some time to review these and consider how you might share them next year.

Thanks to Richard Byrne for sharing a post on a new search engine, Athenir. This visual search engine provides a view that may help learners discover additional search terms, allowing them to more easily find the information they are looking for. His post (linked to by clicking his name above) explains that this is just the beginning with additional items being added over the summer. 

If you have used Carrot2 the visual seen above may be familiar to you. Athenir is using Yahoo as the base for its' searches.

Providing learners access to search engines beyond Google, Bing and Yahoo is important. There are many search engines that are geared to younger students, that are more visual in nature...this list could go on. The visual component of this is colorful and allows learners to view their search in a format that many find helpful.

This is a cool idea. 

Kobe Davis's curator insight, April 5, 8:33 PM

This article explains the introduction of a FIS book club in British schools. This website encourages students to read through creation of online book reviews. Students are filmed talking about books they have read and critiquing their characters and plot lines.

 

This way of learning focuses on student learning where “students are active rather than passive recipients of knowledge” (Commander, Ward & Zabrucky, 2012, p. 395) and encourages them to “think more deeply about learning” (Commander, Ward & Zabrucky, 2012, p. 398).

 

I would use this technology in stages 1-3 with books that I have selected as well as books that the student has chosen. Students would be instructed to film their book reviews in pairs and then present these videos to the class. The class would then critically analyse the student’s presentation and perhaps take a vote whether or not they would like to read that book. This would allow students to demonstrate their proficiency in Talking and Listening. It would also allow me as a teacher to be aware of the types of books the students would be interested in.

Using 'Self-Initiated Transfer' To Drive 21st Century Assessment

Using 'Self-Initiated Transfer' To Drive 21st Century Assessment | Information Literacy & Inquiry Learning | Scoop.it

"Testing is a major challenge in education.

Agreeing on what’s to be tested and how it’s to be administered is a matter of much debate. It’s also a big business...

[Common Core testing may include] adaptive computer-based testing to the existing assessments forms, which in many states include short-written responses. While efforts like these continue, there remains a chasm between the progressive vision of a 21st century learning environment, and a decidedly 20th century assessment style.


Via Beth Dichter

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 1, 2014 7:40 PM

If the goal in education is to graduate students whom are 21st century ready (a century we are already 14 years into) the question of appropriate testing comes up. This post explores this issue and shares what may be taking place in a classroom and how it is not necessarily testable with paper and pencil. Therefore as educators we need to "promote self-initiated transfer." 

The post is split into three sections. The first section looks at testing today. The second section provides "a picture of 21st century learning." The third section explores the challenge, the fact that in theory we are teaching one way and assessing a different way (and as they refer to it in the post, we may be teaching 21st century but we are using an assessment tool that is 20th century). The final section explores one possible solution.

There is much to ponder on in this post which may lead you to think of ways to help students take ownership of learning how to effectively transfer knowlege.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 2, 2014 2:59 PM

Indeed, much of the learning students will do isn't testable by paper & pencil. Computer-based testing doesn't measure the skills students will need for their future.

When you read or hear the words PBL do you think Problem-Based Learning or Project-Based Learning? This post discusses problem-based learning, and provides a historical background before discussing defining it. .The post then compares problem-based learning with project-based, inquiry-based and case-based learning before moving on to provide ten recommendations. Three are below.

* Clearly define your purpose for doing problem-based learning

* Develop ill-structured problems

* Emphasize depth over breadth

To learn more about these three recommendations and view the other seven click through to the post. You may find that problem-based learning is already being used do some degree with your learners, and this post may provide some ideas on how to move into this direction more efficiently.

The library, by definition, is a differentiated space and that's a good conversation starter...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 13, 2014 4:46 PM

The key point for me was the first one. This is an old idea which is making another comeback. With all due respect to Carol Ann Tomlinson, others i.e. Dewey before her made us aware of the need to work individually with each student.

 

It does not take anything away from Tomlinson's work and it is important to keeping it on the front burner in School.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's comment, August 14, 2014 4:13 PM
Agreed, Ivon. Effective teachers have always known that not all students learned or grasped the same way. Perhaps the important point is to remember this fact in our current climate of "same test, same day, same results" thinking.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.
