How To Use A Rubric Without Stifling Creativity - Grant Wiggins - TeachThought

How To Use A Rubric Without Stifling Creativity - Grant Wiggins - TeachThought | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

 "It was not that long ago when I did a workshop where the staff from the Dodge Foundation (who were funding my work at the time) took me aside at the break because they were concerned with my constant use of a term that they had never heard of – rubric. Those of us promoting their use over the past 20 years can now smile and take satisfaction in the fact that the term is now familiar and the use of rubrics is commonplace world-wide."

From Chalkboards to Tablets

From Chalkboards to Tablets | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

As the digital learner has emerged over the past ten years, we have noticed a significant shift in the student perspective on using technology for learning.  To bring new insights and context to this digital learning metamorphosis, “From Chalkboards to Tablets: The Emergence of the K-12 Digital Learner” examines the current views of students from Kindergarten through 12th grade with a special look at digital learners in third, sixth, ninth and twelfth grades.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

With Smartphone use by our students on the rise and tablet access on the increase, this is a must read.

My own personal list of people I look to in my professional life for inspiration, superb ideas and sound reasoning is extensive,  but I thought I would share just a few who have been consistently influential.

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education

In today's hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use. Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online. In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform Storify to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.

Studies boost emphasis on reading

The Payson Unified School District (PUSD) has rearranged its budget to boost spending on K-3 reading by 425 percent, a decision research supports.

 

Children who get personalized, consistent instruction in reading can make big gains, according to a three-year study by Arizona State University professor Carol Conner, whose results were published in Psychological Science. Without the individualized instruction, 22 percent of the students fell below grade level — which means they might have to be held back a year under the new state requirements. By contrast, every single student scored at or above grade level when given the extra, targeted help.
