Genial a utilização da taxonomia de Bloom nesse infografico das possiveis atividades em formato "blended"(mix presencial e on line)

Dr. Melissa A. Bordogna's curator insight, March 26, 2015 1:59 AM

At a glance, I thought this a helpful infographic.  It also made me think of the types of feedback I give my students.  In addtion to using a rubric (marking criteria), I tend to provide a fair bit of written feedback.  

How about you...Which types of feedback have you found to be very effective in terms of student learning (as oppose to time-saving for us)?

Karen Ellis's curator insight, April 1, 2015 6:57 PM

Designing and planning assesment in online learning is very important.  This infographic reminds us of the importance of making the task student centric and that  ongoing feedback is critical.

10 Classroom Technology Policies That Work

10 Classroom Technology Policies That Work | School libraries | Scoop.it

"While you may have tried and true procedures for things like sharpening pencils and lining up for lunch, chances are you're still figuring out classroom rules around technology. Should you allow students free Internet time when they are done with their work? Should students be able to sign up for tablet time or are you the unofficial Queen of the iPad?"

21 Smart Games For Game-Based Learning

21 Smart Games For Game-Based Learning | School libraries | Scoop.it

"

Game-Based Learning is a slippery beast.

 

For one, it promotes students playing video games, which is somewhat radical in many learning environments for anything other than recreation.

And two, there is seemingly a disconnect between what students learn while playing games (e.g., problem-solving, visual-spatial thinking, collaboration, resource management), and the pure academic standards most teachers are interested promoting mastery of.

 

In the middle, there is a simple truth that few things are as engaging–for adults and students alike–as a well-designed video game, which might just make the following list of smart, “learning games” useful to you."

Teacher librarians could soon be left on the funding shelf

Teacher librarians could soon be left on the funding shelf | School libraries | Scoop.it

The library is the heart of the primary school, and it is the teacher librarian who brings it alive.

Yet a slow erosion of this position is under way and a permanent loss of such a fundamental person in our primary schools would have devastating consequences in the lives of our children. Originally a full-time position, regardless of the size the school, the days worked by teacher librarians are now dictated by the number of students.

45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp

45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp | School libraries | Scoop.it

"Educators are beginning to see the potential of using mobile devices and apps for ongoing professional development as well as to improve literacy and cognitive development for learners. Apps are equipped with several features that motivate learners to create stories, presentations, and projects that are hands-on and use their creativity as well as their critical thinking skills. Once an app is downloaded, many features can be accessed without an Internet connection. Educators can also use various apps at conferences to connect with other educators or capture a presentation. Below are the various apps nominated by teachers for an Edublog Award so they must be worth checking out. Each has a link and a description. Make sure to check out the Edublog Awards for blogs, wikis, and web tools that teachers worldwide have recommended."
