Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: Get Smart by Texting w/ @Text_Engine | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Text Engine was developed to offer cell phone users a means to search the web using their text messaging service. This is great news for educators and students in low-income and rural communities.  

And that's a good thing, because while smartphones are popular, there is still a great need for text-only services in low-income and rural districts. There is also a need in districts like NYC that empower students to bring their own devices to school, but don't have the means to enable students to connect to the internet.

David Thornburg: Educational Technology’s Wild Card

David Thornburg: Educational Technology’s Wild Card | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

David Thornburg:


The fact is that the Chromebook emerged as a wild card in a field that never seems to stop and catch its breath.  Does this relegate tablets to the storage closets?  Of course not.  It merely suggests that we need to base our purchasing decisions on the best information we have at the time.  And, make no mistake about it, there will be something someday that eclipses the Chromebook.  This just reinforces the importance of ensuring that whatever purchase we make is based on the actually utility of the device to kids in support of their learning.  As long as we do that, we are on solid ground.

isual guide to critical thinking. print or post to share with students

 

Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 2014 8:24 AM

Hello, Year 9! 

Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy. 

As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.

Con tanta información a nuestro alrededor es fundamental que aprendamos a cuestionar nuestros hallazgos y nuestras propias ideas.
