46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Student Success & EdTech & E-Learning | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...

Toni Krasnic's insight:

Why Kids Should Learn Cursive (and Math Facts, and Word Roots) | Student Success & EdTech & E-Learning | Scoop.it
More schools are getting rid of "old-fashioned" skills like penmanship and multiplication tables, but research shows students benefit from classic teaching methods.
Toni Krasnic's insight:

Recent studies support the effectiveness of “old school” methods like memorizing math facts, reading aloud, practicing handwriting and teaching argumentation (activities that once went by the names drill, recitation, penmanship and rhetoric).

Students as learning designers: Using social media to scaffold the experience | eLearning

Students as learning designers: Using social media to scaffold the experience | eLearning | Student Success & EdTech & E-Learning | Scoop.it

"The ‘students as learning designers’ approach challenges transmission models of pedagogy and requires teachers to relinquish some control to their students so that they might have the space to experiment and discover how to learn.

This paper outlines the findings of two studies that allowed students to explore new ways of learning, where they were encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning, and outlines what potential social media tools may have in facilitating this experience. These projects demonstrate that when students are empowered to design their own learning activities, they can deeply engage in the learning process."
