Infographic: Citizenship in the digital age | Library learning centre builds lifelong learners. | Scoop.it

Digital citizenship is not so different from traditional citizenship. We still need to guide students to be kind, respectful and responsible. What’s new is teaching them how to apply these values to the realities of the digital age.

32 Characteristics Of High-Performing Classrooms

 

Instructional design is the strategic creation of learning experiences through intentional planning, sequencing, and data-based revision of learning.

 

This process includes both the ways content is accessed, and the learning needs and objectives (and how they are determined) themselves.

 

This puts instructional strategies, literacy strategies, curriculum mapping, standards unpacking, assessment design, digital literacy, and a dozen other facets of education beneath its umbrella.

Visible Thinking

Visible Thinking | Library learning centre builds lifelong learners. | Scoop.it

At the core of Visible Thinking are practices that help make thinking visible: Thinking Routines loosely guide learners' thought processes and encourage active processing. They are short, easy-to-learn mini-strategies that extend and deepen students' thinking and become part of the fabric of everyday classroom life.

 

Thinking Ideals are easily accessible concepts capturing naturally occurring goals, strivings or interests that often propel our thinking. Four Ideals -- Understanding, Truth, Fairness and Creativity -- are presented as modules on this site.

 

There are associated routines for each ideal and within each module there are activities that help deepen students' concepts around the ideal.
