Moving Your Kindergarten into Web 2.0 with 5 Different Tools (by Özge Karaoğlu) – Teaching Village

Moving Your Kindergarten into Web 2.0 with 5 Different Tools (by Özge Karaoğlu) – Teaching Village | multimodal composition | Scoop.it

Kindergarten has always been the place to make friends, paint pictures, tell stories, play games and have fun while learning. Wooden blocks and legos have always been favorites in kindergarten classes. Today, the world is undergoing a digital change, changing our children digitally as well.

ESL writing & multiliteracies

Tuba Angay-Crowder's insight:

As ubiquitous media content is orienting the interest of 21st century’s writers towards creating and publishing multimodal compositions (posters, digital stories, websites, online texts etc.) out of school and workplace, educators look for ways of incorporating these “new literacies” (New London Group, 1996) into student’s writing activities that are opportunities for mediating voice and identity within the socio-cultural perspective of language learning. This blog’s purpose is to examine the tools of new literacies as a way of motivating students in writing and promoting students’ discursive consciousness in expressing style, voice, and identity in classroom settings.

Shona Whyte's curator insight, January 15, 2013 2:29 AM

Many of my undergraduate EFL students are big fans of English Central, so there is certainly an interest in video-based quizzes as an entertaining form of self-study.

Video: Student-centered learning in action - WOW Factor!

Video:  Student-centered learning in action - WOW Factor! | multimodal composition | Scoop.it

Massabesic Middle School, Waterboro

"For so many years, students would receive grades and not know where they came from, what assignments led up to them, how they would be assessed. Now they're involved in not only creating the units and deciding how they will assess themselves, but also how they will assess each other."

 

Ms. Downing-Ford:

 

So when a student walks into my classroom, I think what their struck with is that I'm not the one that's talking the most in the classroom. There's a lot of voice and choice in the classroom.

 

For so many years, they would receive grades and not know where they came from, what assignments led up to them, how they would be assessed. Now they're involved in not only creating the units and deciding how they will assess themselves, but also how they will self-assess their work and assess each other.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, December 20, 2012 11:35 AM

At Massabesic Middle School, learners are unpacking the standards and are given "voice and choice" in how they learn and how they will express what they know and understand.  This is an excellent example of what student-centered learning is and how teachers and learners roles change. Above all, the ownership to learning takes place where the learners are driving their own learning.

 

A thank you to the Maine DOE and Ms. Downing-Ford in sharing this video and illustrating the power behind student-centered learning!

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, December 21, 2012 12:39 PM

Worth a watch. I'm struck with the fact that these students are using education jargon, like: "unpacking the standards." Not sure how I feel about that.

Find and Drop Images, Quotes and Info References Into Your Presentations with the New Google Research Tool

Find and Drop Images, Quotes and Info References Into Your Presentations with the New Google Research Tool | multimodal composition | Scoop.it


Robin Good: I used to love the Google contextual mini-browser (the Google Deskbar - 2003), something probably most people today have never seen nor have a memory of, but which in my humble opinion, was one of the best and most useful tools released by Google ever.

 

Well the little mini-search tool is back in a new customized format inside the Google Docs Presentation tool, where you can now easily search for reference, quotes, information and images related to the topic you are working on in your presentation.

 

Search becomes contextual and the relevant information found can be immediately integrated into the work we are creating. (Any information or image you find with the Google Research Tool can be intuitively selected and dragged onto the slide area, where it can be sized and positioned in any way you like.)

 

Each content item found with the Google Research Tool and utilized in your slide content is automatically linked back to its original source to simplify the credit and attribution process.

 

Extremely useful. Especially for quotes and images.
