Control F – Find :: Alice Keeler

Control F – Find :: Alice Keeler | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Control F lets you find keywords on a web page or within a document. Command F on a Mac. This keyboard shortcut is handy in a gradebook to jump quickly to a student’s name in the roster.

Research Technique

As we shift towards asking students complex questions, we need to help students filter through the “One Million” page results Google might return. Skimming articles is not efficient. If students use Control F to find a keyword on a page, the student can use context clues to determine if that article is helpful or not.

Dremel Dreams Curriculum is the Key to Inspiring Students in 3D Printing :: Bridget Butler Millsaps

Dremel Dreams Curriculum is the Key to Inspiring Students in 3D Printing :: Bridget Butler Millsaps | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

zz'The key to making kids want to learn is through connecting at their level, discovering their interests, and inspiring them to grow. We all know that school isn’t much fun if it’s just rote learning taught by a robotic teacher who is just as bored as the kids are. Education certainly doesn’t have to be about copying sentences and formulas from a blackboard—it can be vibrant, exciting—and about doing. In the case of Dremel’s latest curriculum package though, it’s about making.


"With their new ecosystem and the Dremel Dreams program, both students and teachers alike can get excited, get up from behind those desks, and innovate on numerous levels. As the 3D printing community and industry have advanced, so has its involvement in education. And as 3D printing labs begin to show up in more schools, teachers are no longer left on their own when it comes to figuring out how to operate the hardware and software, teach it to the students, as well as learning how to perform maintenance when issues arise."

For those in Australia or places other than the UK who would like to understand more about what occurs in other places, this guide published in the UK aims to help develop a shared understanding of the teaching of computational thinking in schools. It presents a conceptual framework of computational thinking, describes pedagogic approaches for teaching and offers guides for assessment.

A very good article that focuses on new possibility of VR use cross classrooms and countries. 

VR platform offerings could result in a curator or artist guiding a group of thousands around a museum exhibition or cultural site, or an actor or professor leading a virtual master class in real time with students from all over the world.

While statistics on VR use in K-­12 schools and colleges have yet to be gathered, the steady growth of the market is reflected in the surge of companies solely dedicated to providing schools with packaged educational curriculum, content, teacher training and technological tools to support VR­-based instruction in the classroom.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 4, 12:27 PM

The Einstein quote is important. Teachers are responsible for teaching and not student learning. That makes teaching an invitational process which is hard work. Many school managers and consultants do what they do because it is easier to speak in technical and instrumental jargon than in human and relational language.

Using Artifacts and Photos to Inspire Writing: Discovering the Writer's Life :: Betsy Hubbard

Using Artifacts and Photos to Inspire Writing: Discovering the Writer's Life :: Betsy Hubbard | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"There are unlimited ways to use artifacts and photos to encourage writing. You can start by providing the item yourself or allowing students to bring in their own. Here’s a list of ideas to get you going:

1. Collect photos and images of people from magazines or a free use site. Have students create a character map, detailing behaviors, likes and dislikes, and traits for character development.


2. Have students make an initial list of descriptive words connected to their artifact. Then ask students to go item by item on their list to create a more descriptive word or phrase. For instance, a student who brings in a fuzzy brown teddy bear might start with a list similar to the one on the left, but progress to a list similar to the one on the right:
brown                         chocolate
fuzzy                         matted fuzz flattened from snuggles
red bow                      crimson tied ribbon


3. Get out the magnifiers and allow children to examine their object looking for small details that might go unnoticed. Jot down these tiny details and talk about the parallels between little details in their writing.


4. Artifacts are fun to use as inspiration for writing mask poems. It forces students to really think about words that describe the item and opens the door for similes and metaphors.

"
5. Once students are comfortable writing personal narrative stories, allow them to write a true story inspired by their artifact or photo. Then, in a twist, have them re-create the story using the same item as inspiration but creating a fictional story."

I’ve got plenty of great clips and animations that explicitly explain what a growth mindset it, and you can see them at The Best Resources On Helping Our Students Develop A “Growth Mindset.”
But video clips from TV and the movies are obviously more engaging to students, so I’d like to have a few in the mix.

We all have our own presentation style, but have you ever thought about how your particular style compares to others? And the strengths and weaknesses of your presentation style?


After years of research, my team and I have found there are four primary presentation styles: the Closer, the Data Scientist, the Director and the Storyteller. You can discover your own style with the quiz What’s Your Presentation Style?


One style isn’t better than other; but picking the wrong style for a particular audience can cause trouble for even the best presenter.

In 1996, world famous boxer Muhammad Ali was chosen to light the Olympic torch at the Atlanta Olympic games despite his suffering of Parkinsons disease. The moment was a historic one and to one young boy, who viewed the ceremony on Youtube years after it occurred, it was the ultimate inspiration. Utkarsh Tandon, the young boy who drew inspiration from Muhammad Ali, is now a high school student at Cupertino High School in California who has developed a 3D printed ring that is capable of monitoring Parkinson’s patients’ tremors and translating them into data accessible through an iOS app.
