Giving Students Meaningful Work: Seven Essentials for Project-Based Learning | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

A project is meaningful if it fulfills two criteria. First, students must perceive the work as personally meaningful, as a task that matters and that they want to do well.

When Traditional Policy Goes Bad: Teen Social Use of Mobile Devices in High Schools | DMLcentral | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

As I've been lately analyzing my data set related to in-school use of mobile devices at an urban school in South Central Los Angeles, I've been intrigued by some of the general tensions that exist in mobile media use in schools and the way teens tend to utilize mobile devices in ways that oppose traditional school power structures.

More Spanish: Oral Assessments via Google Voice | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it
We are finishing up midterm exams, and this is the first year I feel the test has been meaningful for my students. This year I set the test up to have three parts: an oral assessment, a written assessment and a traditional vocabulary/grammar section. The students recorded the oral assessment on Google Voice the last two days of the term, giving me a weekend to start grading them.
