A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Research Tools & Education | Scoop.it

"Project based learning is a teaching learning methodology that has been widely praised for its efficacy in enhancing learning achievements.The premise underlying PBL revolves around  getting students engaged in authentic learning events through the integration of mini-projects in class. These projects can be as short as one day and as long as a year. However, there is a difference between mere projects and project based learning. This table from Teachbytes provides a great illustration of the nuances between the two concepts."

Excellent table reminding about the difference between projects and project based learning. Projects are too easily assigned as exercises to students, without paying attention to the issues on the right hand side of this table.

Check out three versions of Bloom's Taxonomy in this visualization. It includes the original Bloom's, the revised Bloom's, and adds on the Digital Bloom's, which provides a range of suggestions as to how students may demonstrate each level. This is another visual that you may want to share with other teachers in your school.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, April 5, 2:21 PM

I love the clarity of the digital verbs! I think the specific content of the "doing" might allow for a bit of repositioning in the  chart, but it's certainly a great starting point in analyzing the tasks and output of a lesson.

Lee Hall's curator insight, April 7, 11:25 AM

It is interesting to see all of Bloom's side by side.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, May 5, 2:01 AM

In order to begin recording your iPad, there are a number of elements you have to get ready. Here's a quick list of everything you need to create an iPad screencast:

  • An iPad (any version except the first generation iPad will work)
  • A Mac or Windows PC
  • Airplay mirroring software
  • Screen recording software
  • A USB microphone

In the directions that follow, I will look at each of these in turn and show how they all interact to help you create a recording of your iPad screen.

Visual Assessment Guide « rossparker.org

Visual Assessment Guide « rossparker.org | Research Tools & Education | Scoop.it

"What started last year as a Self Assessment Guide, has been reworked into a more general tool for assessment. This new guide is suitable for teacher, peer or self assessment and also offers a visual map of what we want students to learn (with highlighting of which concepts are most important). Although still ICT specific, this guide could be adapted to any subject by changing the attributes and keywords."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 30, 5:33 PM

Check out this revised assessment tool from Ross Parker. In the post he shares his experience with using this for a year and the awareness that the tool was not as functional as he had hoped. In brief, he has made four shifts.

1. Taking a tool designed for self assessment and realizing that the same time used throughout the year gets old quickly. Therefore, it is redesigned to "more general, useful for teachers and peers to use."

2. A shift from strands (high level learning outcomes), to attributes (which allows the tool to be used by students over many years as their knowledge and skills grow).

3. A move away from levels or grades to a focus on ways of learning.

4. Allowing students to determine levels rather than assigning them based on personal view.

Last year this tool was well received and this new version brings it up to a new level. Consider using this with students and perhaps have them keep a copy of it asking them to review it later on in the school year. You can download a pdf version of the tool from the website.

According to Facebook's news page, the service has 1.23 billion active users, a little over 20% of the population of the world. Twitter has around 200 million. These services, or something like them, have become increasingly important in our lives, influencing the news media and a variety of public decision making processes. Between a need for security and utility, we need to start learning, then teaching, then learning some more, how to best use social media, and classrooms are not the only place where this needs to be done.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Research Tools & Education | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

The 6 Skills for Researching Online Information Students should Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

"With Internet becoming the number one source of information students flock to when looking for resources and references for their researches, it becomes imperative that we make sure that our students are equipped with the appropriate gear to keep them afloat in a sea of information and junk knowledge. I am not talking here about the tools students need to use such as  the different search engines available out there but more importantly they 'whys' and 'hows' of using these tools. We want to raise a generation of discerning researchers and critical thinkers and to do this we definitely need to shift the focus from the product and tilt it  more towards the process. In this regard I am sharing with you two important visuals that shed more light on the outline of the process of research. I invite you to have a look and share with your students."
