I had a problem with the "synthesis" skills. Shouldn't it suggest example questions like "in what ways is person A similar to person B? How does report a, b, and c inform your ____ practices in the future?" Things like that.

This mpa depicts the European discoveries that have transpired throughout the years and where they have been invented in Europe. Many of them have been created in regions near Portugal and the Spain/Austria Hungry regions. This shows you the percentage and the amount of people it has affected in each region.

Adapting A Social Learning Strategy Framework For Education

Adapting A Social Learning Strategy Framework For Education | Teaching geography | Scoop.it

Should teachers “sell” content? Does it hurt to see the learning process in that light? This framework is broken down into two categories–Strategy Development & Engagement. What if, instead of considering teacher strategies, we focused on learning strategies, and began each unit or lesson by clarifying learning strategies, learning actions, and learner engagement, including:

1. WHAT the student engages with–from peers to teachers to content and technology

2. WHO the student engages with

3. WHEN the student engages

4. WHY the student makes those engagements

Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 28, 2013 5:42 AM

The only grades I would use this video in would be 5 and 6. This is because it uses some higher level language that younger students may not understand (I'd most likely play it more than once so we can pick apart the information together as a class). I like this resource because it gives a quick overview of what we as a country consider to be an important use of water. This video could be used as inspiration for an inquiry task, or it could be used to begin lessons about our own smart water usage - i.e. discussions about how much 13 gigalitres is and how it was used by industry and households alone in 2010/11.

Critical Thinking From The Ground Up

Critical Thinking From The Ground Up | Teaching geography | Scoop.it

Images of critical thinking in full bloom abound—teams in furious concentration to send rockets to Mars, the ferment of ideas in businesses like Apple and Google, and the patient concentration of a Nobel Prize-winning scientist.  Education’s work, however, is with the early seedlings of these fruits that present fewer pictures. If a child needs a 2-degree course correction to find his way to intellectual greatness, making the change early is easiest and cheapest if we can understand how to guide him

Bloom's Taxonomy supports students through 6 key areas of learning. Creating, evaluating, analyzing, applying, understanding and remembering. This source indicates an array of applications that specfiically support students in each area. These can be used if students are struggling in an area of learning so that they can be supported through digital means.
