7 Creative Apps That Allow Students To Show What They Know - TeachThought

7 Creative Apps That Allow Students To Show What They Know - TeachThought | library life | Scoop.it
Albert Einstein’s said, “You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother.” Technology gives us many avenues for explaining our learning. It also can give us an audience, whether that audience is a grandmother, a classmate, or a stranger.

It’s powerful to process and prioritize what you’re learning and turn it into something to teach others. As a fifth grade teacher, I often had groups of students focus on different topics. Each group was responsible for making a product that would teach the rest of the class about their topic. I believe in giving students choices in how they convey information, and my students produced a large variety of learning artifacts.

I listed many of the kinds of artifacts students can produce on my poster, “Show What You Know Using Apps.” Many of the iPad apps on that graphic are probably familiar to you: Pic Collage,  Haiku Deck,  Book Creator,  Puppet Pals HD. In addition to those four, let’s look at three more apps you might not know so much about.

What Awaits Every Cheater in the Plagiarism Hell? #infographic

What Awaits Every Cheater in the Plagiarism Hell? #infographic | library life | Scoop.it
Have you ever thought of plagiarists as sinners suffering hard from their copy-paste misdeeds? Inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, Unplag team created a visualized version of… that very… plagiarism hell having nine different circles for the lost souls. Sounds terrifying? Yes, it’s really so. The souls travel from circle to circle to the deepest reaches of hell depending on the type of plagiarism crime they committed.

It’s no wonder that each circle can be too overcrowded, just because plagiarism has many faces. It’s very subtle like the Serpent from the ancient mythology. It can easily mislead you by transforming into a style, structure or idea plagiarism without you even noticing. Sometimes, it can become even more dangerous when poisoning you with an evidence, sectional or complete plagiarism toxin.

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | library life | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.
