Graphic novels in the classroom

In this module, you will look at: graphic novels; how they differ from conventional novels; how people read them; how they represent characters, settings and events; and how readers respond to them.

An excellent site, sponsored by the West Australian Government. The module designed to assist teachers in the use of graphic novels is chock-a-block with examples and questions to generate critical thinking in students.

such a great resource. Graphic novels are quite foreign to me and websites like this make incorporating them into classwork less daunting.

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation | Reading and Inquiry for Young Adults | Scoop.it

For students who struggle with output, the option now exists to record ideas directly "onto a page." Similarly, teachers can leave audio feedback for students who benefit from hearing input multiple times. With the built-in camera, students can quickly snap pictures of class notes on a board, or record a quick video of teacher instruction. Leveraging just these few features has the potential to personalize learning and differentiate instruction where it might otherwise be impossible.

The most important thing to do is to start with the wife of using the iPad if you have a sound pedagogical reason for using the iPad then you'll be a will to come up with uses that are appropriate.

Some interesting tips and insights.

diane gusa's curator insight, July 13, 2013 10:28 AM

We have a long way to go to understand best practices for iPads, to move it from a play thing to integrated into creative pedagogy. However, "The Longest Journey begins with the First Step" and that is getting into the hands or teachers and learners.
