You Should Be More Suspicious About "Research" | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

On any given day, you can find numerous blogs or so-called topical "news" sites offering recent stories about research claiming to show groundbreaking findings that accelerate problems related to aging. The ones that seem to get the greatest attention are those showing how this food or that food is a magical solution to all of your problems. They often go on to say something like:

 

"New research shows that eating chocolate daily will increase your life span by fifty years."

Have you ever posted a photo or video online that wasn’t yours? If you have, you could have broken the law. That’s scary to think about, right? Understanding copyright is an important skill, but it’s a confusing topic. Why do we have copyright laws? What are common copyright violations? To help your students better understand what copyright is, we created a simple handout to assist with your instruction.

27 Ways To Inspire Innovative Thinking In Students

27 Ways To Inspire Innovative Thinking In Students | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

Innovative thinking in students will flower when we design classrooms that absolutely can’t survive without it. Same with critical thinking, self-direction, creativity, and so on. Until we reach that point, it’s on the shoulders of the classroom teacher to tease it out of students through a combination of inspiration, modeling, scaffolding, and creating persistent opportunity.

Step by Step: Designing Personalized Learning Experiences For Students - Mind/Shift

Step by Step: Designing Personalized Learning Experiences For Students - Mind/Shift | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
The phrase “personalized learning” gets tossed around a lot in education circles. Sometimes it’s used in the context of educational technology tools that offer lessons keyed to the academic level of individual students. Other times it’s referring to the personal touch of a teacher getting to know a student, learning about their interests and tailoring lessons to meet both their needs and their passion areas. As with most education jargon, the phrase isn’t fixed, but it usually connects to the idea that not all students need the same thing at the same time. It implies choice, multiple pathways to learning, many ways to demonstrate competency and resists the notion that all students learn the same way.

Educator Mia MacMeekin has put together a clear infographic highlighting some of the ways teachers design “personalized” curriculum.

Via John Evans
Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:

An interesting look at how students learn. Can we help them personalise their learning. I think so.
