TIME’s 100 Most Influential Images of All Time

TIME’s 100 Most Influential Images of All Time | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it

"What are the 100 most influential photographs? To answer this question, Time magazine reached out to historians, curators, and photo editors and conducted interviews with photographers, subjects of famous photographs, and others to assemble this collection of photographs taken between 1826 (when the first known photograph was taken by Joseph Nicephore Niepce) and 2015. Each selected photograph is accompanied by a short essay. These photographs, which can be browsed chronologically, vary widely. Some are poignant, while others are whimsical. Visitors, especially educators and parents, should be aware that some of these photographs depict violence and human suffering and may be disturbing. There is also a series of short documentary films, Behind the Photographs, that provide additional context to some of these famous images."

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it
Storytelling in its way can have just as much complexity as music or mathematics. That we don’t really understand this craft – or that this is a craft – is partly because of the romantic myth of “inspiration” peddled by authors as much as anyone. It is taught (up to a point) in creative writing degrees – but it can be simplified enough to be taught to schoolchildren as well.

Learning In The Age Of Digital Distraction

Learning In The Age Of Digital Distraction | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it
There needs to be some positive acceptance that young people are going to use this technology. I don't think that just denying it is reasonable. I also don't think an extended period of removing technology is likely to be helpful. I think that it is reasonable to take technology "time outs," to have environments and maybe even times where the family interacts with each other and not the outside world through texts. It's sort of a return to the dinner table as a place where you learn how to engage in face-to-face, meaningful contact. Put your tech aside. You can return to it afterwards.

And I think to lead by example is critical because we now know that parents are as guilty as their kids in pulling out a phone during a dinner conversation and texting. I think that that is really critical just to say it has to be balanced and we're going to practice how to balance it as a family.

Best Books for Teaching Empathy To Older Kids

Best Books for Teaching Empathy To Older Kids | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it
Teaching empathy to children is more important than ever, but sometimes it can be hard to get through to our older kids. Using books is a great solution.

 

As a mom with several kids in later elementary school and now even a high schooler, I worry all the time about the world they live in and character examples they are exposed to at school and in the media. I want to raise kind kids who are compassionate and thoughtful, but teaching empathy lessons to older kids can be more challenging

 

When my children were younger and in the picture book stage, it was simple to find quality stories that helped me engage my them in meaningful conversations and reinforce the character lessons we were teaching them at home.

8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.

How to Rebrand Yourself as Creative When You’re Not Perceived That Way

How to Rebrand Yourself as Creative When You’re Not Perceived That Way | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it

The contemporary business world lauds those who are seen as creative. Innovators such as Elon Musk and Jony Ive have become household names. Yet, for many of us, despite our best efforts to be recognized as creative thinkers, our suggestions in meetings are ignored and our pitches to bosses get rebuffed.

If your colleagues have already formed an opinion of you as technically competent but a little staid, it’s going to take a lot to change their minds and get them to listen — a situation that’s especially true for women, who, research suggests, are often unfairly viewed as less creative than men.

Is Technology Holding Students Back? | Edudemic

Is Technology Holding Students Back? | Edudemic | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it
Today, a day without tech being used in the classroom would be an unusual day indeed. In fact, according to a survey by Front Row Education, 75% of teachers say they use technology daily with their students. Tablets and laptops are now common in many classrooms. These devices can be loaded with education programs and apps for students, and using this kind of technology makes it easy for teachers to track student progress.

On the cutting edge of ed-tech you’ll find tools like virtual reality and 3D printing. By using virtual reality technology, like Google Glass, students can visit other locations without ever leaving their desks. These tools use 3D imagery to make the wearer feel like they’re exploring a realm in person. 3D printing also gives students opportunities to explore cutting-edge concepts in the classroom. Students can design objects on a computer and then “print” them out on a 3D printer, which uses plastic or other materials to create the object. These kinds of technologies may currently be cost prohibitive for many schools, but you’re likely to see them being adopted by classrooms in the coming years.
