Philosophy for schools | Questioning

Philosophy for schools | Questioning | Teaching Primary School | Scoop.it
Questions are at the heart of learning, so good questioning has a great deal to do with good teaching. Following a precedent set by the ancient Greek philosopher, Socrates, over 2000 years ago, successful questioning is best achieved by the use of dialectic, which is to say a two-way, collaborative dialogue between the teacher and the students.

App Schmapp, make sure you give ‘em a good story – Guest Post by Annie Fox, M. Ed. | The Digital Media Diet

App Schmapp, make sure you give ‘em a good story – Guest Post by Annie Fox, M. Ed. | The Digital Media Diet | Teaching Primary School | Scoop.it

We’ve all seen story apps with knockout art and animation – digital eye candy so vibrant, lovely, and/or filled with whimsy we may just want to slip into this new world and stay forever. Which is why adults, who do all the reviewing and buying of kids story apps, go gaga for apps that look great. And of course, story apps need to look great on the screen. After all, we’re talking about creating content for a visual medium.

 

But story apps have the word “story” right in there for a reason. They need an actual story to qualify. A boy sitting down to slurp a loooong noodle isn’t a story. When a length of pasta is a story’s only protagonist and it doesn’t even speak or do anything, well, we’ve truly entered the realm of PDD (Plot Deficit Disorder).

I would add, not only a good story, but also written in good English. Some of the misspellings and vocabulary choices I've seen are downright alarming.
