Love the visual representation of the shifts.  They are, themselves, indicative of a shift.  Wonder if there is a poster or .pdf of this.  would be great to have as a reminder right next to my desk.  5 and 6, in particular, speak to Discovery Education's mission with STEM.

How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading

How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading | Literacy | Scoop.it

"If you’re not familiar with Adler and Van Doren’s How To Read A Book, it is worth, well, reading.

As you might’ve guessed, these have less to do with decoding, and more to do with comprehension. Actually, more to do with the perspective you approach your reading with."

Check out this sketch note that provides three strategies for critical reading:

* Inspectional Reading

* Analytical Reading

* Synoptical Reading

Other terms might also be used such as Quick Reading, Close Reading and Cross Reading or Whole Reading, Parts Reading and Social Reading. Additional information is available in the post.

A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Literacy | Scoop.it

"In this quick post I want to share with you this beautiful interactive image on the SAMR model. I learned about this resource from a tweet shared by our colleague David Fife. As you can see from the image below, iPadders provided examples of how to use each classroom task according to the different SAMR categories. And in each category, a set of apps and tools are provided to help you carry out the task under study. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. Enjoy"

Another example of SAMR model.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 23, 2014 6:23 PM

I've heard a lot about SMAR but never really taken the time to look into it. It might be time now that I'm looking at integrating more technology into my classroom. This model clearly supports technology and expects the use of it. 

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 2014 6:42 PM

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

Claire Williams's curator insight, September 3, 2013 7:27 PM

   This artical, shows not only what an annotation is but how to do so and how to teach it. It also shows reaons why it can be helpful and places you can use it. 

     There is also more to this artical than bears the eye, it involves other teaching techiques in the artical such as asking questions whaen reading.

    this artical might be helpful during the reading and writing log!!!

Jose's curator insight, February 6, 2014 12:50 PM

Is annotation really worth it? After reading this article, it re-enforces my belief that annotating when reading is very critical and helps you understand what is really going on. Although, i myself, only tend to underline and write on the side of the page, i found that using different symbols is also very helpful. As a reader, you have to develop a way of doing things. The ways that catch your interest and do not bore you 5 minutes into doing things.. So next time the teacher asks you to read, there should not be any doubts in your mind whether or not  you should annotate. 

Michele Rosario's curator insight, February 13, 2014 3:40 PM

          Annotations are definitely a necessity when carefully reading while recording your thought process.  As a student myself, I never really thought annotating was beneficial, and relied on just small amounts of knowledge I gain from the reads, in which does not help at all.  I understand very well how this author explains that the younger generations think it is boring and time consuming, because it kind of is.  Nonetheless, it helps build visual character to a read or book, as if they are little “short cuts” to what you thought of in the beginning. 

            The source used to post this article was on a site entitled, “TeachHUB.com: K-12 News, Lessons, and Shared Resources”, in which I believe is a very reliable source site.
