Edcanvas | The best way to teach with digital content

Edcanvas | The best way to teach with digital content | LibraryLearningCommons | Scoop.it
The best way to teach with digital content
Ephansen's insight:

From Pete MacKay @theteacherlist: "a new resource that has been evolving over the last few months. The best way to describe EdCanvas.com is a gathering tool. Students and teachers simply drag resources like urls, images, and files to each box. The boxes can then be presented like slides but the cool thing is that the collected resources are live within the box. Users can also share their canvasses with each other. Try having students or session attendees collect resources during a lesson - it's quite powerful!"

Vicki Butler's curator insight, May 1, 2013 11:58 AM

This is a a wonderful program: check out Kathleen's notes

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Don't miss this project that was designed by learners at The Inquiry Hub. The back story is that the learners wrote a grant so they could design and built this community garden. Here are some insights into The Inquiry Hub.

 

"The structure of the Inquiry Hub is around topics. In the morning, the teachers and learners start off with a topical workshop. Then the learners work on online courses guided by their teachers. In the afternoon they work on their inquiry project individually and/or collaboratively. Dave shared a topic that took a life of its own: The Green Inquiry Project where Shauna, Sophia, and Hanna wrote and received a wildlife grant as part of their environmental sustainability group."

Carol Koechlin's curator insight, May 2, 2013 10:03 AM

Great model that could be replicated in the Learning Commons to empower students to own their inquiry.

Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, May 23, 2013 8:18 AM

I love the name "Inquiry Hub"...such a powerful way to help us all reimagine what a learning community can be if it's not a "school."
