A few good scoops for us « NeverEndingSearch | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

I’ve been talking a lot about curating for and with students lately. As the curation movement gets stickier, more and more librarians and educators are joining.

 

So I tasked my very able practicum student Chrissy Sirianni to help me pick some Scoop.its to share, offering a taste of the kind of current awareness the tool provides for school library professionals.

60 Second Recap: Valuable Video Resource for ALL Students of Literature |

60 Second Recap: Valuable Video Resource for ALL Students of Literature | | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

"If you are a student or teacher of literature, and you aren’t already familiar with this resource, you owe it to yourself to check it out. For effective learning to occur in any classroom, it’s essential that information be presented in multiple formats. It’s just as important to offer a range of options for engagement. This site helps beautifully on both counts.

60 Second Recap is a web based resource, and an iOS app, that uses short video clips to introduce great literature in a manner that I suspect most learners find highly engaging. Each clip is well researched and skilfully written. Production quality is exceptional. The target audience may be high school students, but these videos completely engage this learner, and I haven’t been a high school student for more than 40 years!"

PBL Series… Driving Questions: Students Uncovering Amazing Content Through Inquiry

PBL Series… Driving Questions: Students Uncovering Amazing Content Through Inquiry | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

 "I really like Driving Questions. In fact, I like them so much more then Essential Questions. You might ask why? I think it just might be my affection for the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. You may remember that in the revision the different levels were changed into action. In fact, I strongly believe that learning is a verb and is based on action. Take away the word “Question” and Driving is a verb loaded with action. The word “Essential” standing alone is only a word devoted to describing… a colorful but inactive adjective."

This is the first article of a series and discusses the concept of Driving Questions and how their importance in PBL. Links to additional resources are also available.

The Key to Media's Hidden Codes

Wow.  Somebody or some team worked very hard to create this effective video for helping students learn the importance of how to decode media messages.

Colors, camera angles and logos in the media can all prompt immediate associations with emotions, activities and memories.

Embrace the Struggle | Venspired Learning | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

"Raise the bar. Set new goals. Ask your students to do things they might not think they can do at first. Give them the freedom to get creative. To design. To solve problems. To justify their opinions. Then, they’ll turn around and out-think you. They’ll come up with ideas and solutions that you hadn’t even considered. They’ll lead you in a new direction. They’ll make you want to replan, revise, and reflect. Then you’ll feel like you are struggling. That’s when you know you’ll be growing, too. That’s called being a teacher."

Kathy was one of the first teachers who offered internet based assistance to teachers.  She has always been at the head of the edtech pack and this latest rendition of her work is her usual high quality interpretation of how students learn.

She states: However, I was recently reflecting (again) on the triangular shape the Bloom's taxonomies utilize.  Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes up and down the categories as they create new knowledge, I was thinking another type of image might be more explanatory.

Here is my first draft of the idea of the "interlocking of the cognitive processes".

Guy is among a growing faction of Ontario parents, teachers, and education specialists who believe kids need more technology in the classroom, from blogs to Facebook, mobile devices and beyond. Without it, they argue, children’s education will become woefully irrelevant in today’s fast-changing world—think of it as 21st century illiteracy..

The Flipped Classroom: Getting Started » Copy / Paste

The Flipped Classroom: Getting Started » Copy / Paste | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

Are you thinking of flipping your classroom? Do you see a flipped classroom as watching videos? Think again. Peter Pappas suggests that a flipped classroom is "really about creating more time for in-class student collaboration, inquiry, and interaction. It's also is a powerful catalyst for transforming the teacher from content transmission to instructional designer and changing students from passive consumers of information into active learners taking a more collaborative and self-directed role in their learning."

He provides a "slide deck" that has strategies, resources, lesson and more to help you make this transition.
