Cursive writing? Should we teach it or not? Many states are still requiring cursive writing be taught, but it is not part of the Common Core. This infographic provides information about why it is important that students learn cursive.

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, February 21, 10:17 AM

Uit onderzoek is gebleken dat leerlingen lesstof beter opnemen als ze handgeschreven notities maken. Gewoon leren schrijven en het ontwikkelen van je handschrift blijft dus van groot belang.

A Framework for Differentiation

A Framework for Differentiation | Special Science Classroom | Scoop.it

"Differentiation is adjusting and modifying what skills and concepts student learn, what materials the use, and/or how their learning is assessed based on the needs of the students.

Our students are not all the same, so we cannot expect that teaching a lesson one way will reach every student."

What do we mean by share your evidence? It is a great question. What happens if something is said that does not fit with our expectations and pre-suppositions?

Sans questions pas de raisonnement. 

D'ailleurs, qu'est ce que la réflexion si ce n'est l'enchaînement de questions?

Et l'intelligence ne serait elle pas simplement l'enchaînement de bonne questions?

Check out the notes from the talk above, consider watching the video embedded within the post and think about new ways to work with your students this year about the concept of failure. If you are an engineer failure you understand that failure is a teaching tool, allowing you to improve the project, but in education most students consider failure just that...they have failed. A couple of quotes found in this visalization are below. What are your thoughts as you read them?

* Have courage. It's not easy to do new things!

* No failure means no risk which means nothing new.

If you have not used infographics with your class this infographic may be what moves you try them with your students. Research tells us that many of our students are visual learners, and great infographics provide information that is accessible. Mia MacMeekin provides an infographic that looks at four areas.

* What is an infographic?

* Why an infographic?

* What are the benefits?

* Can it change education
* What is the reach?

The joy of infographics is that students can also create them. Take some time to explore this post, and consider using them in your classroom.

Are you interested in having your students be more involved in the creation of projects? This visual is a "learning commons working model" that looks at "key stations in the learning commons."

As a teacher what changes might you need to make in your classroom for this to work? What will you see and hear? How will you get your students engaged?

Maker stations, innovation work, project-based learning - all are experiential and many of our students will gravitate towards projects if given the opportunity. This visual provides a road map that may help you make shifts in your classroom.

When a student struggles to read, we look to factors such as socioeconomic status or access to books. But brain differences are also part of the equation and should not be overlooked.

This infographic looks at the brain and how we learn. As more is learned about the brain it is clear that education is not a one-size-fits all.

* Learn how the occipital lobe, Wernicke's area, Broca's area and auditory processing impacts reading. 

* Read three examples that show brain plasticity (the ability of the brain to change over time).

* And find out how struggling readers can be helped at a neurological level.

Some additional resources are also included.

We have many students who struggle with reading. This infographic provides information that you may want to share with parents.

"Effective schools make a big difference in student achievement. Effective leadership makes a positive difference, too. Effective teachers, however, directly impact student learning and achievement. It’s been shown that teachers who have a large repertoire of effective instructional strategies teach differently."

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, February 19, 2014 4:30 AM

A literacy-rich environment in classrooms and schools, for example, is an important K-12 foundation to support and extend effective instruction. And, effective vocabulary instruction (here, here, here, and here, too) is an integral part of a comprehensive literacy framework and supports student learning and achievement. Building a common language educators is also important, though frequently lacking. A common language helps teachers, coaches, and administrators communicate more easily and specifically around instructional strategies associated with literacy instruction, educational initiatives, and the Common Core State Standards

This infographic looks at Project Based Learning (PBL) and divides it into three main sections:

* Organize and co-ordinate work

* Build background knowledge & inspire

* Co-design *making*

The second and third areas are then decided to more clearly deliniate the areas each covers. The last final two sections provide more specific concepts of what it required and also one or more suggestions of tech tools that will assist the process. There are additional groupings as shown in the infographic above.

More and more teachers are engaging in some form of PBL and this visual may serve as a great base to help create a strong foundation and provide ideas of technology tools that might assist in the process.

I really like this resources because it shows where students are getting information for their projects.  The projects are learned through resources that are distributed across many different fields, websites, and search engines.  This allows students to engage in many different types of content curation sites.  Google and skype are a few examples of resources.  The visual is broken up into instant learning and coalitious segments showing how some sites are good for overlapping purposes.  This is an interesting view of PBL sources.
