Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 1, 2014 9:35 PM

Five games are discussed in this post. However only two of them are free to use. Each is discussed in the post and you can go directly from the post to the game.

The first two listed below are free. 

* The Sports Network 2 - This game was developed through a grant from the Gates and Hewlett Foundations to meet Next Generation Learning Standards and focuses on Common Core State Stanards in ELA and Literacy. Students become a cable sports show producer and must "make sure the  show’s content is written well and on point.." 

* Prodigy is geared to elementary school and focuses on math. "Kids use math to wield magic and combat monsters as they venture through a fantasy-based world and level up their characters." It is designed to differentiate instruction, is aligned to the Common Core for grades 1 - 5 and is "free forever."

* Dragon Box Algebra 5+ - DragonBox is a program that consistently receives high praise and helps to introduce students to core concepts of algebra, and may be used with children as young as 4. There is also an advanced version of the program for older students.

* Word Raider focuses on vocabulary. Using academic terms and visuals it provides students with practice while having fun.

* DreamBox is "a comprehensive, game-based math curriculum oozing with style and full of well-designed, self-paced games that adapt to students’ abilities.

A Study of Best Practices for Online Courses based on Marzano

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 6, 2014 1:29 PM

Many schools are exploring online instruction as a component of education (including K-12). If you are interested in learning how one organization (edmentum) had the Marzano Research Laboratory review "the impact of strategies on student academic outcomes in an online learning environment." The report explores best practices in three areas:

* Marzano Dimension: Strategies Involving Routine Events - This area covers six best practices, including

  * Communicating course /assignment rules and procedures

  * Allowing students to keep track of their learning progress

* Marzano Dimension: Strategies Enacted on the Spot - This area also discusses six best practices, including:

  * Providing help to understand and practice new knowledge

  * Allowing students to ask questions during online course/assignment

* Marzano Dimension: Strategies Addressing Content - This area has only one practice: 

 * Adding external resources to assignments aligned to local objectives

There is a page devoted to each of the best practices. This information may not be new to you, but if teaching online is new to you there are great suggestions to help you design a course (or teach a course) that will lead to a more successful implementation. 

The link to this file is located at:  http://www.edmentum.com/sites/edmentum.com/files/resource/media/0317-01%20Marzano_eBook.pdf

7 Ways To Use Google Tools To Maximize Learning - Edudemic | Supporting Tech Use in Education | Scoop.it
There are a boatload of awesome Google tools that we use every day. And they’re free, too, which tends to be a big winner for teachers and students. Free is probably the number one reason for giving Google’s tools a try – you haven’t lost anything but a bit of time if you decide you …

Beth Dichter's insight:

Google provides so many tools it is hard to keep track of all of them. This post provides information on 7 tools that may find a place in your classroom. 
Would you like to provide audio feedback to your students, or have peers provide audio feedback? If you are using Google Drive this is possible.

Do you have a student that needs a clean and clear space to write, with no distractions? If Chrome is available as a browser consider installing the app Write Space, a "minimalist text editor."

If students are working in Google Drive and are researching a paper they may have found the Research Tool that allows you to quickly search the web for specific information, make suggestions and more.

Google Forms continues to add features, including the ability to create surveys. Have your students design a survey and graph their data, or use it the survey tool to do a quick formative assessment as an exit ticket.

Learn more about Moderator, Image Directory, and Google Templates (that's right, Google has templates designed for students and teachers) in the post. Chances are you will find at least one or two tools to use for yourself or with your students (or both)!

If you are looking for some great resources to help your students learn more about the environment this list of 22 interactive lessons may be right up your alley. The lesson plans are for students as young as Kindergarten up through Grade 12. All are from PBS and all come with materials to use in conjunction with the interactive activities. PBS does require that you create a user name after you access two items but you may also create and save items in a favorite files for future use.
