Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 16, 9:43 PM

If you are looking for a website that looks at women who have made a difference in STEM check out this site from the White House. Women who work in the White House "tell their stories of their personal heroes across the fields of science, technology, engineering and math."

The site also suggest that we honor those women who have come before in the "best possible way: By committing to encourage a young woman to pursue a career in science."

Currently the stories of 12 women are shared. You may also write about your "untold STEM history" and share how you will inspire young women to pursue science careers.

You can listen to the stories, and they range from just under one minute to about six minutes in length.

If you would like additional short talks on women in science you consider checking out some of the programs that WAMC offered in 2009 called Women in Science on the Air. A number of these tell the stories of women who were instrumental in making changes but are not know. You can access them at this site:

How to Turn a Classroom Research Project into an Infographic | Edudemic

How to Turn a Classroom Research Project into an Infographic | Edudemic | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

Conveying information in a striking, concise way has never been more important, and infographics are the perfect pedagogical tool with which to do so. Below, you’ll find my experience with designing an infographic-friendly classroom research project, explained in a step-by-step process you can implement in your own classroom.

The Rice Process's insight:

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.

The Rice Process's insight:

Parents and teachers need to model gratitude. We know that gratitude is a predictor of feeling happy and content. Children learn early that gratitude is an attitude that contributes to their personal happiness and to the happiness of others.  We all share a common desire to be happy, and gratitude shows us the way.

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.

Toporopa is compilation of different games and app for secondary students to review their geographic knowledge of geography, and learn new concepts in a fun and entertaining way.  It does reinforce the 'encyclopedic' view of geography education, but the games are well-crafted and available in most of the major languages of the European Union.  See a Spanish-language review of the site here.

Flags of Europe is definitely my favorite. Really good games to improve my knowledge of the old continent. 

Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, December 17, 1:59 AM

I thought that this game was really useful for getting to know all different aspects of Europe. I really like how it was separated into a variety of different categories that focused on different things in Europe. Of course I was familiar with the countries category. Some things that I was not familiar with before finding this game was all the bodies of water in Europe. I am now aware of the different lakes, seas, and rivers in Europe. I thought it was really cool how it went into some real detail and included aspects like the ports, volcanoes, monarchies, and the battles. I definitely was not aware with any of these before seeing this game. I think this is a very useful game if you wish to know more about Europe or maybe even if you're traveling there and want to get some background knowledge.

There are days when it is difficult to move forward, when frustration has taken over enthusiasm and we may question ourselves. This post is a lesson in inspiration (at least for me) and provides great quotes and images that lead one to think again about how to handle the difficult situations we find ourselves in, be in the classroom or out of the classroom.

The post provides 8 suggestions, and each is followed by a quote and/or visual. Each is also followed by a question.

What are the suggestions? Three are listed below.

* Decide to Level Up. And the question is....What is one new thing I can learn today?

* Take Time to Read. And the question is...What is the last book I read?

* Seek inspiration. And the question is....Where do I struggle to be inspired? How can I inject vitamin B there?

Allow yourself the time to read through this post and re-energize  your spirit. May your day be awesome!

A New Paradigm for Accountability: The Joy of Learning

A New Paradigm for Accountability: The Joy of Learning | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

 

I have an idea for a new accountability system that relies on different metrics. We begin by dropping standardized test scores as measures of quality or effectiveness. We stop labeling, ranking, and rating children, teachers, and schools. We use tests only when needed for diagnostic purposes, not for comparing children to their peers, not to find winners and losers. We rely on teachers to test their students, not corporations. The new accountability system would be called No Child Left Out. The measures would be these:

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Edudemic

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Edudemic | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

"Carol Ann Tomlinson, author of “The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of All Learners,” is the country’s preeminent scholar on differentiated instruction. Tomlinson defines differentiated learning as “ensuring that what a student learns, how he/she learns it, and how the student demonstrates what he/she has learned is a match for that student’s readiness level, interests, and preferred mode of learning.” She likens the reluctance to integrate modern knowledge of the learning process into the classroom to settling for a Model T instead of embracing 21st-century engineering."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 6, 9:43 PM

This post explores some of Carol Ann Tomlinon's work on differentiation. Specifically it looks at:

* Content

* Process

* Product

* Affect

After defining each of these concepts you will find the following sections:

* The Empirical Basis of Differentiation

* Implementing Differentiation in your Classroom

* Anecdotal Support for this Method

* Criticisms of Differentiation

Many teachers find it difficult to find the time to differentiate for all students and some students find it frustration to discover that they have more work than other students. Today we are often told that we need to personalize the instruction for each student. Differentiation is one way we can walk down this road.
