Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This.

Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This. | Learn it and Teach it Online | Scoop.it
Wikipedia's most common sources of information are news outlets, books, and academic archives. So if your teacher has banned Wikipedia, just follow Wikipedia's trail of sources to get to the good stuff. Oh, and don't tell them we sent you.

Sarah Rach-Sovich's insight:

A great starting point - track it back to see where it might have come from.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Wikipedia is a solid way to begin a search on many topics IF you follow the backtrail to the sources listed in the article. 

As a school librarian, I agree with this advice.  If you know little about a topic that you are researching, begin with Wikipedia to gather search terms and find sources of information from the citations.  Wikipedia should not be cited as a source for academic research, but it can be a tool for finding sources that are.

Deborah Owen's curator insight, May 7, 2013 8:12 AM

Hmmm... Worth knowing about. Still can't cite it, but a good place to start for background info.

Lorena Swetnam's curator insight, May 7, 2013 9:43 AM

Teach students and teachers how Wikipedia can be a starting point in the research process, not the final destination.

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus | Learn it and Teach it Online | Scoop.it
Critical thinking is defined as a reflective and reasonable thought process embodying depth, accuracy, and astute judgment to determine the merit of a decision, an object, or a theory (Alwehaibi, 2012). Creative thinking involves analysis, evaluation, and a synthesizing of facts, ideas, opinions, and theories. Possessing the capacity to logically and creatively exercise in-depth judgment and reflection to work effectively in the realm of complex ideas exemplifies a critical thinker (Carmichael & Farrell, 2012).

I had a banner on my classroom wall for years. It read: "Learn how to think!"


In the conservative backwaters of Nevada this was considered a radical approach.  I even had a parent rant at me, "How dare you teach my child to challenge authority!"  


Still I persisted and can now smile knowing I've helped some of my students on the road to critical thinking.   


Is critical thinking a subversive activity in your school?  If so, be subversive!

Teachers Guide on The Use of ePortfolios in Education

Teachers Guide on The Use of ePortfolios in Education | Learn it and Teach it Online | Scoop.it

Have you ever thought of teaching your students how to create an ePortfolio ? Well if you have not then it is about time to take the idea seriously. There are actually several reasons why you should encourage students to create their own ePortfolios but before we delve into them let me just briefly define what an ePortfolio is.

 

ePortfolio is an electronic journal where one collects evidence of their learning. It is the equivalent of the traditional pen and paper journals where we used to track our learning journey before technology takes over. ePortfolios can either be discipline specific or genrally open to the entire lifelong learning experience. We in education are interested in the first type.

 

The good thing about ePortfolios is that they help students reflect about their own learning.This reflection is a necessary mental process for developing critical thinking. Students no longer are just passive learners but rather actively participate in the improvement of their learning.

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | Learn it and Teach it Online | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.


Via Nik Peachey

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

Implementing some kind of self-assessment is a very good thing, as it enables learners to judge the quality of their work. I’ve done this on an ad-hoc basis at times in the past, but using a formal instrument or procedure can work wonders, even if it has no official bearing on the final outcome.

Search on Google Like a Pro: Collection of Best Tips & Tricks | Learn it and Teach it Online | Scoop.it

Google is the only search engine that doesn’t need any presentation. Used in whopping percentages all around the world, this engine receives several hundred million searches on a daily basis. Besides awesome marketing ideas, Google’s success is based on an intelligent algorithm named Page Rank, which basically ranks web pages that match a given word.


Google was launched thirteen years ago and since then a lot of different techniques and features were implemented by its developers. Unfortunately, not many people know that Google can interpret a wide range of searching tricks to improve results and that there’s more to searching than simply inserting words.

How can you search Google better?

There is a wide range of things you can do with Google and with our help, you will be able to use them and improve every search. The following search tips can be applied for every instance of the famous search engine, meaning every country and every language.
In the beginning, I want to point some different facts that are important to be known before you go Googling:


Punctuation doesn’t matter.Uppercase and lowercase letters are the same for Google.The limit is set to ten words and everything after that is truncated and ignored.Word order matters to Google.Small words such as “the”, “and”, “or”, etc. will be ignored unless they are specific operators and, capitalized.
