My Desk-Free, Student-First Classroom

My Desk-Free, Student-First Classroom - Bright - Medium

I have been teaching for sixteen years and I have seen remarkable changes in the classroom. I’ve seen chalkboards change to whiteboards, and whiteboards change to interactive touch screens. Desktops have been replaced with laptops, which have now morphed into Chromebooks. But recent changes in education have, for the most part, been limited to tangible items. What hasn’t been so quick to change is teachers’ mindsets in regards to the physical makeup of the classroom. I would dare say that the majority of teachers utilize desks the in the same manner that they did when they first started teaching.

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.

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.
