5 Web Tools to Create Digital Newspapers for Your Class

5 Web Tools to Create Digital Newspapers for Your Class | Project-based Learning for World Languages | Scoop.it

To boost your sense of achievement and to showcase what you have been working on diligently with your students, a digital newspaper would be your perfect solution. This paper can include different contributions from your students and from you as well. Encourage students to share their writing pieces, create videos and share the links or any other multimodal activity. There is nothing as rewarding for students as seeing their work published and shared with others.

Debbie Ruston - The Success Educator's curator insight, April 24, 2013 8:48 AM

Lots of great ideas being shared by educators.  There are solutions to provide youth the type of education they require.  It is important to innovate, stop doing things the way we have always done them, utilize technology, work together and stop hanging on to the past way of doing things in education.  Change happens when people with a common vision join together to make it happen.

Critical Thinking in the Language Classroom

When you ask people to define ‘Critical Thinking’, there is no shortage of definitions. In a recent online webinar for English Language Teachers, the lecturer started the webinar by asking participants to share their own definition of the term, Critical Thinking. With around 100 teachers from various backgrounds, there was a wide range of ideas and suggestions.

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly | Project-based Learning for World Languages | Scoop.it

The problem is that Wikipedia in the classroom has gotten a bad reputation in the K-12 world, undeservedly so I think. I would suggest that Wikipedia can be used for a multitude of educational purposes at a wide variety of grade levels. Too many teachers are still afraid to use it in class, so I’m here to right that wrong and show our educators how they can responsibly integrate Wikipedia into their lessons.

Do you let your students use Wikipedia ? I think it is a great resource, especally because there are articles in many languages - very helpful to my students when doing their inquiry for PBL aligned projects!

Be sure to check out Wikipedia’s own resources for teachers as well. They have an awesome 12-week syllabus showing you exactly how you can integrate Wikipedia into your classroom. They also have training designed especially for educators."

Giving these types of skills to students can help them with their understanding of writing and also help teachers with avoiding the copy and paste syndrome in tasks.
