Blended learning and the flipped classroom | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

What exactly do these terms mean? How much online content is the right amount? What sorts of sites and apps should we be using? How can we convincingly recommend new technologies to students who are more technologically savvy than we are? Do we need a radical rethink of the way we present information to learners?

Un logiciel en ligne pour monter, raconter des histoires en 7 moments clés maximum. Pour chacun de ces moments, vous pouvez intégrer une image ou une vidéo et un texte de 140 caractères maximum. Les contraintes éditoriales sont intéressantes pour forcer les élèves à organiser, à structurer leur récit ou leur reportage. On pourra ainsi leur demander de raconter un évènement historique en trois moment clés : une situation initiale, un évènement perturbateur et une situation finale. A tester !

Brilliant.  I absolutely agree.  Can be particularly helpful for foreign students learning English.

Lena Leirdal's curator insight, August 30, 2014 4:42 AM

Coming across the reluctant reader in the classroom in not uncommon. This is a link to a excerpt from a graduate thesis about using graphic novels and comics to teach struggling male readers. I tried teaching graphic novels in my own classroom this spring, and even though I thought it went quite well, I still have to become a bit more acquainted and comfortable with the genre. I will most definitely give it another try this year!

 

I find inspiration to do so in Michael Storm´s point that "we need to teach young boys that literacy still is the ultimate adventure, and they too have the chance to be the hero".

Second Edition: Revised and Updated Edition " http://amzn.to/1bOeA48 James Paul Gee argued for the importance of game play for the learners' developing personalty and the honing of their thinking capacities. Gee analyzed several of the popular video and online games like Sims City, and War of Warcraft, to mention but a few , and found out that the learning design informing these games  are behind their sweeping popularity among gamers in all around the world. Gee further claimed that investing time in playing these games does impinge positively on the learning skills of kids. It, among many other things, help them develop strategic thinking, problem solving, active critical thinking, and meta-level thinking.

For example, The US economic status is High Class at $12195 or more for most of the East and West Coast and then it is dull in the middle. These facts compared to South America where they are mostly upper middle class at around $3946-12185 and a portion of them are the lower middle class which rings in at around $886-3945.

 On map 33, it shows the religious borders map of the different religions that are occupying certain areas of the Middle East. The area of Baghdad and east is mostly Shiite Islam and west of Baghdad is Sunni Islam. What I found to be most interesting is that even though Jerusalem is surrounded by many different religions they still celebrate Judaism. They are religiously protected by its borders. There is some sign of Sunni Islam being practices within their borders but it is mostly dominated by Judaism.

Teaching With QR Codes | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

"So, what are QR Codes, you ask?  Well, you know what barcodes are,  like when you buy something at the store and the clerk scans a code to enter the item and amount into the till?  The QR (Quick Response) Code is kind of like that, except that it offers much more information.  Quite often the QR Code will give you a link to a website, or a text message, image, etc.  To read the QR Code, you need to install a QR Code Reader onto your device.  There are many available for free.  I like using i-nigma, seen below. Simply open the app, point it at a QR Code and your device will do the rest.  Try it with the code above.  It should take you back to this blog."
