Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, June 2, 2015 9:14 AM

A reading transformation can occur in your school much like it has in my classroom, replacing fear and dread with excitement and self-expression. Students will read if they choose the books. They will write with voice and clarity if they have the ability to express their thoughts. They can change from reluctant to inspired readers if it happens on their own terms. All you have to do is flip the experience, turning the practice of reading on its head by making them the creators of their own learning.

What Is Markdown, and Why Is It Better for My To-Do Lists and Notes?

What Is Markdown, and Why Is It Better for My To-Do Lists and Notes? | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
I've heard a lot about using Markdown for writing and editing text, especially in the case of writing on tablets. But I'm not really sure what people like about it.

 

[...] So, Why Should You Use It?
We're big fans of plain text writing—or at the very least, writing with the exact amount of tools you need. If plain text is too minimal for you because you need formatting, but you don't want to waste time with too much formatting with the likes of Microsoft Word, then Markdown is a good in-between. It's also supported in tons of different web applications, including Tumblr, some Wiki's, and others.

College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

"Looking closer at readership of digital books, here are some of the findings:
Seven in 10 college students (70%) have read digital textbooks, compared to 62% a year ago.
Six in 10 high school seniors (58%) have read digital textbooks, compared to 41% a year ago.
Among those students who had previously read a digital textbook, eight in 10 college students (81%) and two-thirds of high school seniors (66%) have read a digital textbook this school year (since September 2011).
Almost six in 10 college students prefer a digital format when reading books for fun (57%) or textbooks for class (58%), while one-third say that they prefer print. This trend can be seen among high school seniors as well, and is mostly driven by an increase in the preference to use tablets for reading.
Other studies have found that e-textbooks still face several obstacles to overcome before digital textbook distribution models become mainstream on college campuses..."

What Educators Need to Know about Reading

What Educators Need to Know about Reading | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

Reading is one of the basic literacy skills we have been taught from early ages in our life.As we grow up and our personalities start to get its peculiar shape we become more and more divergent on the way we perceive of this skill. We even develop different reading habits, some read only for the gist, some do skimming, others are heavy and engaged readers, some read an hour before they sleep, others love to read in public places and buses.No matter how, when and what we read, reading is essential for cognitive maturity.
