SteveB's Social Learning Scoop

Wecome to my Social Learning Scoop.

 

It contains a generic mix of articles, gathered through twitter, the blogs I follow and suggestions from the Scoop.it curation tool, that catch my attention as interesting to me and possibly other people.

 

You can use the filter option just above this introduction to search for a particular topic within the numerous articles collated here.

How a District Ended Student Dropouts with Personalized Learning (EdSurge News)

How a District Ended Student Dropouts with Personalized Learning (EdSurge News) | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

by Roger Cook

 

"Imagine, if you can, a school where students do not have specific teachers assigned to them, nor do teachers have specific students on their roster.

 

"Imagine a school where students come each day with a list of standards to work on and accomplish--right when they walk in the door. They can go to the teacher of their choice in order to accomplish the completion of these standards. Or, they can do them on their own in any setting they wish, as long as they maintain accomplishing the minimum amount of standards in a minimum amount of time. Some students, for example, may work individually in the media center not having to go to any classroom.

 

"And last but not least, imagine a district at large where the dropout rate is at zero percent.

 

"In this type of environment, students would come and go as they please, but would be required to prove the successful completion of work and pass assessments to demonstrate understanding.

Sound crazy? Not to educators in the Taylor County School District in Campbellsville, Kentucky. In fact, that is our district’s ten-year plan."

Coggles in Google Drive

Coggles in Google Drive | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

We love Google docs. In fact, the seamless collaboration in text documents and spreadsheets is one of the things that inspired us to build the same sort of collaboration into Coggle, right from the start, and the frustration of working collaboratively on text documents is partly why Coggles have the branching structure they do – which makes it much simpler to collaborate.

Baiba Svenca's curator insight, April 13, 1:02 AM

Great news from the mind mapping tool Coggle which is a free Chrome web app (you need not use Chrome despite the name)! It is now integrated in Google Drive.

Insert coggles in your documents or presentations without leaving Google Drive and share them easily.
