The list is endless.  Looking through this helps generate ideas on how to utilize forms to enhance/inform instruction, gain insight and individualize learning for students..

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, February 22, 2013 8:00 AM

Welcome to ImageQuiz, a website that uses the power of images (1 image = 1000 words) to help you learn. The website contains a variety of quizzes, tagged according to topic: just select a topic that interests you from the sidebar, then select a quiz. Can't think of one? Do a random quiz.

how the quizzes work

Each quiz will prompt you to click on a particular part of the image that you will hopefully recognise. For example, the image might be a map of the world and the prompt asks you to click on Brazil (easy, it's the biggest country in South America!).

making your own

The best thing about ImageQuiz is that you can make your own: to share with friends; to help you with your studies; or just for fun. Simply click create new, upload an image, and draw on outlines around the elements you want users to click on.

I enjoy reading. libraries and QR Codes, so I thought I would bring them all together in my latest project: the QR Code Portable Bookshelf. I was going to call it the QR Code portable Library, but a Library is much more than a collection of books.

Center for Digital Storytelling - Introducing StoryLab

Center for Digital Storytelling - Introducing StoryLab | Teaching in the Middle | Scoop.it

StoryLab is a new hub for innovation with a big aim: to radically improve public conversation in the U.S. and around the world. Everybody talks about it, but CDS actually knows how to do it.

To change the world, you first have to change the story.

 

Here is an organization I think everyone should know about -- the Center for Digital Storytelling (CDS). They have been, and continue to provide world-class training in digital storytelling grounded in the power of a story dynamics to make a difference.

 

They are launching a new project -- StoryLab -- which aims to engage people in changing stories that keep us stuck, limited -- like our political discourse, violence, aids, etc. -- and expressing those stories that eliven and enoble us. Truly great work.

 

So why am I curating this and what has it got to do with business? Well -- imagine applying these same principles and ideas to the stories you share about your business, engaging your organization in this kind of deep story sharing that changes the world, and engaging with customers to create profound partnerships that make a difference.

 

Hmmmm -- I think there are lots of opportunities here and StoryLab is showing us the way.

 

The video on the StoryLab page also mentions supporting the project through donations. That is up to you. I have no affiliation with the Center other than our mutual love of story and its transformative power, and an amazing conversation I had a few years ago with founder Joe Lambert.

 

IMHO, thank heavens they are doing this project. There are so many others in the field of story that also work with story for transformative change. Let's keep hooking up. It is in this spirit that I bring you StoryLab.

This is very insightful when creating an effective, authentic and reliable curation collection.  It is resources like this one that I feel will benefit others in their teaching and learning journey.

Dorothy Minor's curator insight, July 8, 2013 3:29 PM

This infographic provides insight into showing how to enhance learning. Critical thinking is an important skill in today's world. Students need encouragement in taking ownership of their own learning. We can find ways to encourage students from this link.
