Why students using laptops learn less in class even when they really are taking notes

Why students using laptops learn less in class even when they really are taking notes | Library Tips and Tricks | Scoop.it
A new study adds to the evidence that longhand writing makes for better learning than pounding on a laptop.

Via John Evans
Deborah Rinio's insight:

This is interesting but not surprising. It seems that students who write their notes are more selective about what they write down, while students who type will write down everything they hear. Thus, students who are writing things out longhand are focusing more on what's important. I imagine that has an impact on how the brain retains information.

Tips for Teaching The Research Paper | Secondary Solutions

Tips for Teaching The Research Paper | Secondary Solutions | Library Tips and Tricks | Scoop.it
Deborah Rinio's insight:
Learning how to research is critical to success in life, employment, and academics. It's part of making good choices, whether they be personal ones, consumer ones, or academic ones. Writing a research paper is one way to make the process visible and concrete to the student, and it helps develop students' writing and communication skills. I believe that every high school student should have to write at least one research paper a year. Although there are various ways to approach that task, this website offers some suggestions. Teachers, don't forget to ask your librarian to collaborate with you on research assignments. Librarians don't just help students find information, they teach how to avoid plagiarism, cite sources, organize information, paraphrase, summarize, and communicate in a variety of formats.

Booktrack - Amplify your story | Library Tips and Tricks | Scoop.it
Booktrack has created a new genre of digital storytelling entertainment. The patented technology lets anyone add a synchronized movie-style soundtrack—including music, ambient audio and sound effects—to an e-Book or other digital text content, with the audio paced to each individual’s reading speed. This innovative platform enables users to create and share stories—on a mobile or tablet device—in a unique and exciting way, transforming the “written” word.
Deborah Rinio's insight:

This is an awesome way to enhance the creative writing process and enliven the classics. Students can read and listen to the classics, OR add sound to their own stories or to classic stories in the public domain. Imagine how closely a student must read to re-imagine Alice in Wonderland or Sherlock Holmes by adding music and ambient sound. Interested in trying out this new tool?

Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 5:24 AM

Hello, Year 9! 

Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy. 

As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.

"I'm not a gambling person, but if I had to place a bet on one sure-fire method for engaging students, increasing test scores, reaching students who fall below standards, challenging students who exceed grade-level standards, accessing students' creativity and originality, maximizing brain connections formed, applying concepts to new situations, and making the learning process more fun for the students and teacher, I would place that bet on . . . teaching the core curriculum through the arts."

Want to integrate arts in your classroom? Did you know that schools here in Fairbanks have the Picturing America set of laminated posters for check out through the library. Or perhaps you'd like students to do something more technology based; try using Layar or Thinglink to add content (stories, voice recordings, weblinks, etc.) to images.
