Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 2, 7:09 AM

The infographic above is geared to elementary students. Research shows that if we teach students about their brain, and about growth mindset and fixed mindset it makes a difference. Consider sharing this with your students and have them answer the questions. Some may find that they are holding themselves back based on their mindset. Students could share strategies that they use when they find themselves falling into areas of a fixed mindset.

A Framework for Differentiation

A Framework for Differentiation | teaching and technology | 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."

Not an app but close enough - love it.

Elizabeth Bowden's curator insight, September 12, 2014 7:52 PM

In addition to using Lego for maths, I've taken my sons (extensive) Lego collection into History and Society & Culture to have the students (high school) demonstrate their understanding of concepts such as globalisation, communism, nationalism, capitalism. Worked really well and classes sooo happy. 

 

Having been broken up into groups and given a concept each, They created cities or environments demonstrating the concept then talked the rest of the class through. 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, September 13, 2014 4:06 PM

Fantastic ideas for using lego in mathematics. Simple hands on tasks.

It is amazing how little many students know about food. This infograhic shares statistics from across the world and some may come as a surprise. How often do Americans eat fast food? Does yoghurt come from plants? These questions and many more are answered in this visual.

Take some time to explore this post and see if you could create a lesson or two to help our students why and how to make better choices when choosing what to eat.

Infographics

Infographics | teaching and technology | Scoop.it
Infographics are a visual representation of data. When students create infographics, they are using information, visual, and technology literacies. This page includes links to help you develop...

Via Amy Burns, Leona Ungerer
The Rice Process's insight:

I find infographics an effective way to present information and data. Because infographics use a combination of images, words, and numbers, it effectively communicates the content both verbally and visually. Learning concepts and relationships can easily be conveyed through a well-designed infographic. Infographics tap the verbal senses through words, phrases, sentences, and captions; and the images and graphic representations bombarded the visual senses. Consequently, infographics present the greatest opportunity to increase the effectiveness of what is being taught.

 

Designing visual representation of information is more than translating words to pictorials.  The construction involves filtering the information, drawing relationships, revealing patterns and representing the information as meaningful content.

I often present good infographics and here is someone obsessed with them with lots and lots of (some) quality links. I particularly want to think about infographics for assessment.

Absolutely correct! As we’re an infographic design company, we totally agree with you. Creating Infographic, it helps to communicate effectively with the target audience. They help brands communicate in a more powerful manner!

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

"Critical thought is a cognitive process that proposes the systematic analysis of information, opinion and statements that we accept in our daily life as valid or true. It is a basic skill for a competent, free and responsible citizen."


Via Beth Dichter
The Rice Process's insight:

Excellent!  Thank you.

Critical thinking encourages individuals to work interdependently.  The sharing of ideas and resources contribute significantly to the process.  I think "interdependence " is the higher value in promoting competent citizens.

Tracking the 'Learning Gap' in Time and Money

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 28, 2013 9:01 PM

We know that there is a tremendous difference in the opportunities provided to students based on income levels and this news analysis brings the gap into focus in two areas:

* the number of hours of learning time

* the amount of money spent on learning and enrichment activities

The visual provides a look at how this gap manifests at the ages of four, five, eight, ten and twelve. It is important to note that the method of gathering this data is not the same for these two areas and details are spelled out in this post.
