Skills Converged > Questioning Exercise: Open and Closed Questions | Serious Play | Scoop.it

This exercise helps delegates understand the difference between open and closed questions. It is a rather simple exercise however if executed well it can lead to a profound insight. Those people who tend to ask closed questions too often would benefit the most as they can see that they would get a lot more information if they focused on asking open questions.

Free Technology for Teachers: Six Styles of Classroom Video Projects - A Handout | Serious Play | Scoop.it

The process of creating and publishing videos can be a great way to get students excited about researching, storytelling, and sharing their work with an audience.

To help bring clarity to the styles and tools, I have a rather simple outline that I use in my video creation workshops. That outline with suggested tools for creating videos in each style is included in the PDF embedded below.

Free Technology for Teachers: Athenir - A Search Engine With Visualizations of Related Terms | Serious Play | Scoop.it

When you enter a search term on Athenir you will get results from Yahoo along with a graphic of related search terms. In that regard it reminded me of Google's, now defunct, Wonder Wheel tool.

Applications for Education
Athenir could be useful to students who are struggling to see connections between search terms and or are need of assistance in changing their search terms.
