"...[H]ow do teachers prepare students for global citizenship and 21st century skills without "adding on" a whole new curriculum? Here are some suggestions and resources for building global learning communities, engaging students in global language learning, building intercultural awareness through global literature, and exploring the world through virtual travel. These ideas can be integrated into busy school days and current content areas using common technologies and instructional resources."

Terry Yelmene's curator insight, August 16, 2015 11:50 AM

A pretty well-reasoned, fundamental thought process for most knowledge work research.  This serves as an even better backward (there-to-here) model to guide the core research workflow process automation  a knowledge worker may want to devise, install.  Think work product-informed -> DevonThink structures -> DevonAgent w/'Active Filtered' automated searches.  The most important drivers here are - 'ethical' - (more than just multiple sources, a stage needs to be added at the work product stage to provide authenticity) and - 'bias' -  (a post automated search,  subsequent manual search for corroborating items selection to provide authority).

Evaluating information is a critical life skill. Without sufficient practice, our students will not internalize this skill, and will not remember it from lesson to lesson. Talk to you librarian today about integrating the process of evaluating information into your research projects and lesson plans today!

"Last week, my teaching partner Sarah and I decided that we would start our procedural writing unit.  I always love to teach procedural writing because there are so many fun lessons to do with procedural writing.  Last year students took pictures of each other eating gingerbread cookies and they had to write out how they ate their gingerbread cookie.  They completed the assignment with using the pictures that were taken and the text that they wrote to create a procedural writing video.  Here is one from last year:"

The 8 Best Keyword Research Tools for PPC & SEO Keyword Research | WordStream | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert

The 8 Best Keyword Research Tools for PPC & SEO Keyword Research | WordStream | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert | School Research, Information, & Library Pearls | Scoop.it
The AdWords Keyword Tool has been retired! Here are our eight favorite keyword research tool for SEO and PPC keyword research.

 

Condensed...

 

1. FreshKey ($20 software)

FreshKey is my #1 go-to keyword research tool that allows me to see beyond the regular Google Instant suggestions and predictions that appear when I start typing things in on Google.

 

2) Soovle (free)

Soovle allows you to explore the most typed in keywords on multiple search engines based on the keyword root you give it. It even includes Amazon and eBay.

 

3)  Ubersuggest (free)

Meet the keyword research tool on steroids, Ubersuggest.

Ubersuggest takes any keyword you give it and immediately gives you an almost unlimited list of alphabetized and numerical keyword variations of your original keyword.

 

4) Search Term/Query Reports (free-ish)

The search term/query report is a PPC report that shows you what search terms have actually triggered your ads based on the current keywords you’re bidding on. So it won’t expand your reach since your ads are already showing for those terms, but it will help you improve your quality scores and granularity within your account.

 

5)  Google Keyword Planner (free)

The Google Keyword Planner is sometimes regarded as the alpha and omega of keyword research tools. You must have an AdWords account to access it, and that doesn’t mean you have to pay anything to use it, it’s still free.

 

6)  WordStream’s Keyword Tool (free)

I could never forget WordStream’s very own keyword tool for both SEO and PPC keyword research.

 

8. YouTube Keyword Tool (free)
