Not just about citing images (so much more to embed from NoodleTools!) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | Research to Build and Present Knowledge | Scoop.it

A Guide to Citing Images, a new infographic from our friends at NoodleTools, offers a MLA-aligned flow chart to guide researchers through a variety of image citation situations.  But it is not just about image documentation.


It asks learners to ask themselves a few important questions before using and documenting images that were born digital.  


NoodleTools labels an image born digital if: it was created in digital form, or if you do not know where the image itself is physically stored.

The new learning experiences

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 13, 2014 2:20 AM

If you can do it with paper why use a digital alternative? Because for some of students, it makes the difference between engagement and being switched off.  Of couse finding the activities that you just can't do with paper...that's the real power of a digital solution.

Jennifer Turner's curator insight, February 24, 2014 1:40 PM

Don't be afraid of social media when you can learn how to use it in your classroom.  This reasource is a great find for educators that may want to use social media but just do not know where to incorporate it.

5 Excellent Web Tools to Teach Collaborative Writing | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Excellent Web Tools to Teach Collaborative Writing | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Research to Build and Present Knowledge | Scoop.it

Collaborative writing is a great way to to teach students the writing skill while enjoying it. Now that technology and web 2.0 tools are ubiquitous, you can use a plethora of awesome tools to enhance collaborative writing in your class.

Natalia et al. paper on  collaborative writing sheds some light on the importance of this skill for students:

In the classroom, collaborative writing increases student participation, facilitates discussion of readings and enhances critical thinking (Chan, 1996). It encourages students to continually assess their own performance and class work as well as that of their peers (Jacobsen and Mueller, 1998).Students learn to clearly express ideas through writing . Collaborative writing effectively teaches the concept of teamwork.Collaborative writing improves document quality by pooling the strengths of group members. At the same time, individual weaknesses are caught by the group and revised.Ultimately, collaboration can be a form of motivation for students as they become excited about working with a group as well as the prospect of learning from other students.
