Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | Tech and Libraries | Scoop.it

With iPads, once we begin thinking beyond the confines of a page, anything is possible. Consider the video below created several years ago by two of my students. First they wrote plot summaries. Then they wrote character sketches. From there, they crafted paragraphs about theme, tying the visual and auditory elements of their videos back to the books. Finally, they created storyboards and bibliographies before producing and publishing their final product.

Worth taking a look at.  How many times have you heard people ask what their students can "do" on the ipad to submit their work.  This will walk you through using the ipad for writing.

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning | Tech and Libraries | Scoop.it

"From reminding us of what to pack for a trip to helping doctors perform surgery, checklists are crucial for projects that require sequential steps or a series of tasks. As Atul Gawande points out in his book “Checklist Manifesto,” checklists break down complex tasks and also ensure consistency and efficiency if more than one person is working on a project."

How can check lists help students? Below are a few of the ways suggested by this post. Click through to read all of them.

* A task-based checklists allow students to follow steps providing guidance to successful completion of complex tasks.

* Checklists help with metacognition. They help students "become aware of their learning process."

The post also provides five resources to use checklists in your course.

* Wunderlist

Remember that your check lists may change as students use them...and to ask students for their feedback as they may have ideas that you have not considered.

Checklists can benefit students and most people, helping to breakdown complex steps and ensure consistency

Gary Harwell's curator insight, December 9, 2013 8:54 PM

Why don't we get our students into the habit of making a list?
