Kindergarten Green Screen Animal Interviews - Expect the Miraculous | Online resources for innovative classrooms | Scoop.it
Ms. Kelly’s Kindergarten class has been hard at work on an animal research project that is unlike any other I’ve been a part of.  For the culmination of the project, students recorded an interview of an animal in its habitat using our green screen and the Do Ink app.  There were many layers to the process that students went through the create their final product. The class has been to the library throughout the project to initiate various pieces and then moved forward with the project work in class.

I make no apologies for making this an iPad focused post. So many of the schools that I work with have iPads both for students and for educators.

"In response to requests from some of our readers asking about recommendations for digital exit tools to use in class, we are re-featuring this visual we shared awhile ago. It contains some of what we believe are the best exit ticket tools our there. As we have argued elsewhere, exit tickets are 'informal assessment tools teachers can use to assess students understanding at the end of a class. They can also be used for formative assessment purposes to help teachers design better instructional content based on students feedback. Exit tickets can take the form of a prompt or a question related to what have been taught in the lesson.'""

Research Shows Students Learn Better When They Figure Things Out On Their Own - Mind Research 

Research Shows Students Learn Better When They Figure Things Out On Their Own - Mind Research  | Online resources for innovative classrooms | Scoop.it
In some instances, research illuminates a topic and changes our existing beliefs. For example, here’s a post that challenges the myth of preferred learning styles. Other times, you might hear about a study and say, “Well, of course that’s true!” This might be one of those moments.
Last year, Dr. Karlsson Wirebring and fellow researchers published a study that supports what many educators and parents have already suspected: students learn better when they figure things out on their own, as compared to being told what to do.
