Vaikuttaa lupaavalta vuorovaikutteiselta työkalulta yhteistoiminnalliseen oppimiseen.

Thoreauback's curator insight, April 9, 1:14 PM

WOW! I use freewrites in my face-to-face class because I don't believe a person can write without thinking. Yet, the document students are writing about is always distinct from the free write. In LMS discussion boards the situation is the same.

 

Do you remember how annotations use to appear in the margins of really good books? This is the same. The two-pane interface puts the document right in front of the student and lets them attach their comments to specific paragraphs, pictures or videos.  How perfect is that?

 

I want to try this for a quarter.

Mary Clark's curator insight, April 11, 2:02 PM

While much of this can be done in Google docs, there are several features which can extend the conversation.  Teachers do need to share documents via email.

Evaluating information is a critical life skill. Without sufficient practice, our students will not internalize this skill, and will not remember it from lesson to lesson.

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Keep learning | Scoop.it

"Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section .

As you can see, the wheel outlines a wide variety of verbs and activities related to each thinking level of Blooms taxonomy coupled with iPad apps that go with it. These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Enjoy"

Check the apps you use against this taxonomy.  What level do you personally spend a lot of your time at?  What level can you push your students to try?

Jon C's curator insight, March 27, 7:33 PM

This could be useful resource to connect the old Bloom's taxonomy to new resources out there on the iPad. And a nice visual to boot.

Lou Salza's curator insight, November 28, 2013 11:14 AM

This is particularly important for students with language learning differences--Lou

 

Excerpt:

"...“There’s something about writing that is a link to your brain,” said Marissa Moss, author of the popular children’s book series Amelia’s Notebook. In the books, Moss takes on the persona of a little girl expressing her ideas about the world and people around her. The books are a combination of words and drawings and look free form – as though Amelia sketched them herself.

Taking a cue from Moss, teachers from Oak Knoll Elementary School in Menlo Park, Calif., decided to have their students keep notebooks in a similar style. The notebooks aren’t graded; rather, they’re a place of private, free expression. Karen Clancy and Andrea Boatright presented the project at the Innovative Learning Conference hosted by the Nueva School recently.

“They’re not used to being given permission to write about whatever they want,” Clancy said. But once her students realized that they really weren’t being graded and that they had freedom of expression, they eventually came to demand time to write.

Moss says writing without fear of consequences is key to developing a writer’s voice. “If you’re perfect you are guaranteed to not write a thing,” Moss said. “It’s like driving with one foot on the gas and one foot on the break.” She has developed some guides to help teachers coax students into using art and writing in their journals at the same time, as a way of flexing their visual thinking along with literacy...."

"ere is another wonderful iPad graphic from TechChef4u ( one of my favourite edtech blogs ). The graphic is entitled : MS iPad Oath and features 10 things students need to abide by when using their iPads in the classroom. I have gone through the list and found it really great. In fact students need to abide by these rules wherever they are using iPads be it at school, home or anywhere else. However, TechChef4u has designed this graphic for those intending to use district-owned iPads and this is why she includes rules number 7 and to some extent number 2 as well."

Combien de temps le mythe de la sécurité Mac va-t-il encore tenir?

Combien de temps le mythe de la sécurité Mac va-t-il encore tenir? | Keep learning | Scoop.it

Utrecht, le 27 novembre 2013 - Selon une récente enquête de Kaspersky Lab, il existe de fortes probabilités qu’un nombre croissant d’utilisateurs Mac soient la proie de menaces d’Internet. La quantité des logiciels malveillants ciblant les Mac a augmenté de 50% au cours des douze derniers mois. Pourtant, plus d’un tiers (35%) de tous les utilisateurs Mac pensent à tort être protégés contre les menaces numériques.

Le nombre des propriétaires de Mac continue de progresser, et par conséquent l’intérêt des cybercriminels pour cette plate-forme s’amplifie lui aussi. Les virus informatiques, chevaux de Troie, astuces de phishing et autres menaces d’Internet visant cette plate-forme sont d’ores et déjà en circulation, en grands nombres qui plus est. Les utilisateurs sont ainsi tout aussi vulnérables que les utilisateurs de PC Windows.
