Mocomi is a website geared to elementary and middle school students. Along with videos they have a wide variety of activities in areas including the arts, civics, culture, English, environment, geography, history, science, and math. They also have an online magazine with a specific theme. The current one is called Under Water, and you can access 19 additional magazines online.

This might be a site you use with students, or one that they might explore during free time. Richard Byrne suggests that the videos "are a model of animated informational videos" and students in middle school and high school "could follow the model to create their own short videos to demonstrate their understanding of a topic."

How technology rewrites literature

How technology rewrites literature | Project Based Learning | Scoop.it
Fom typing on a rolling stream of white space to editing in a cloud, shifts in hardware have altered the way writers research, draft, refine and, ultimately, conceive of their work. The basic mechanism may stay the same, but new tools have led to new relations between authors and the words they use. With the internet, the barrier between the writer and the world has become as thin as skin.

Interesting perspectives on how technology has impacted on the creation of literature.

flea palmer's curator insight, July 7, 2014 10:04 AM

Interesting account of how technology has changed the writing process although it seems pen and paper is still used often!

Are you looking for an extensive list of reading response questions? Look no further. This post provides an in-depth list of questions, as well as suggestions on how the author used them in her classroom.

Along with a lengthy list of great questions there is also a section called Test Readiness Terms that provides additional questions in the areas of Analyze, Compare, Contrast, Define, Describe, Differentiate, Discuss, Evaluate, Explain, Identify, Interpret, List, Main Idea, and Outline.

Below are five randomly chosen questions.

— Describe the most important event. Give at least three reasons why you think it is the most important event.
— Draw an interpretation of the passage – may be a picture, symbols, graphic organizer.

— If you could change what you’re reading, how would you change it?

— Is the setting described well enough that can put a picture of it in your mind? Why or why not?

— What have you found boring about what you’ve been reading? What made it boring? If you were the author, what would you do to make it more interesting?

If you have students using writing journals it is worth your time to check out this list. You may not want to use all of the questions (the author notes that a printed list ran to 10 pages) so take the time to review and select ones that will work with your students.

If yoiu are serius about reading, these are some great questions.

What is flipped learning? | Project Based Learning | Scoop.it
To counter common misconceptions and bring clarity to discussions about “Flipped Learning,” the governing board and key leaders of the Flipped Learning Network (FLN) announced a formal definition of the term. They also released the Four Pillars of F-L-I-P™ and a checklist of eleven indicators that educators must incorporate into their practice.
