 If your students don't have iPads take a look at the Human Body Study Jams from Scholastic. Study Jams are slideshows and animations that provide a short overview of various topics in science and math. There are six human body Study Jams; skeletal system, nervous system, digestive system, respiratory system, muscular system, and circulatory system.

Study Jams from Scholastic could be useful resources for elementary school or middle school students to review prior to a lesson that you teach to them. The Study Jams could also be good review materials for students.

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses | Wired

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses | Wired | Library | Scoop.it

..."That’s why a new breed of educators, inspired by everything from the Internet to evolutionary psychology, neuroscience, and AI, are inventing radical new ways for children to learn, grow, and thrive.

 

To them, knowledge isn’t a commodity that’s delivered from teacher to student but something that emerges from the students’ own curiosity-fueled exploration.

 

Teachers provide prompts, not answers, and then they step aside so students can teach themselves and one another. They are creating ways for children to discover their passion—and uncovering a generation of geniuses in the process."

20 Posts to Help Students Learn to Code | Getting Smart by Alison Anderson | Library | Scoop.it
The real goal of the Hour of Code is to bring computer science courses into every school, making it part of the math and science core curriculum and already seems to be working.

 

It is National Computer Science Week, just in case you haven’t heard!  Code.org is giving every student in the US the perfect way to celebrate by organizing the Hour of Code, an event meant to give every student a taste of coding and help expose more students to computer programming. The site is packed full of resources and tutorials for students from Pre-K on up.

To date, we have gathered over 20 million records from a variety of large catalogs as well as single contributions, with more on the way.

 

Open Library is an open project: the software is open, the data are open, the documentation is open, and we welcome your contribution. Whether you fix a typo, add a book, or write a widget--it's all welcome. We have a small team of fantastic programmers who have accomplished a lot, but we can't do it alone!

 

Open Library is a project of the non-profit Internet Archive, and has been funded in part by a grant from the California State Library and the Kahle/Austin Foundation.

"Dubbed the Verizon Innovative Learning Schools Higher Education program, the initiative pairs "math and science majors pursuing secondary teaching certification through UTeach programs [to] work with K-12 students, integrating mobile technologies into inquiry-based lessons."

 

This looks like a great program for 21st century teachers and learners.

How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading

How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading | Library | Scoop.it

"If you’re not familiar with Adler and Van Doren’s How To Read A Book, it is worth, well, reading.

As you might’ve guessed, these have less to do with decoding, and more to do with comprehension. Actually, more to do with the perspective you approach your reading with."

Check out this sketch note that provides three strategies for critical reading:

* Inspectional Reading

* Analytical Reading

* Synoptical Reading

Other terms might also be used such as Quick Reading, Close Reading and Cross Reading or Whole Reading, Parts Reading and Social Reading. Additional information is available in the post.

Well it looks like I've been reading books wrong all my life.
