"Instructional design is the strategic creation of learning experiences through intentional planning, sequencing, and data-based revision of learning. This process includes both the ways content is accessed, and the learning needs and objectives (and how they are determined) themselves. This puts instructional strategies, literacy strategies, curriculum mapping, standards unpacking, assessment design, digital literacy, and a dozen other facets of education beneath its umbrella."

Creative Educator - Get Started with Differentiated Instruction

Creative Educator - Get Started with Differentiated Instruction | Tech, teach and lead | Scoop.it

Differentiated instruction is not a single strategy or formula. It is a way of thinking about the diversity of learners in our classrooms and acting on this knowledge throughout the process of planning, implementing, and evaluating so that we can promote the deepest possible understanding for all students.

Interessant. Ik interesseer me erg voor kennis-/informatieoverdracht. Aardige poging. Ik vraag me af of dit ooit compleet kan zijn, zoals hier al staat: 'not a single strategy or formula'. Maar ik zou mij eerst moeten verdiepen in betekenis en reikwijdte van de gebruikte termen!

Interesante forma de enseñar a los estudiantes como escribir mejor invitándolos a desarrollar textos digitales. Las diferentes herramientas que hoy existen para impulsar el "digital writing" hacen posible producir interesantes historias como "Snow Fall" (http://www.nytimes.com/projects/2012/snow-fall/#/?part=tunnel-creek).

How to Use Restrictions as Parental Controls on an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

How to Use Restrictions as Parental Controls on an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch | Tech, teach and lead | Scoop.it

"If you plan on giving an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to a child, take a moment to set up some very basic parental controls on the device by using the Restrictions feature of iOS. It only takes a minute to configure, and this will prevent the access of inappropriate content, avoid mature themed media, prevent in-app purchases and incidental charges, disable the ability to download and install new apps, plus prevent the removal of apps that have already been installed on the device."

How to Teach a Novel

How to Teach a Novel | Tech, teach and lead | Scoop.it

How to Teach a Novel presents readers with practical advice on how to teach novels in grades 3 and up. For years I searched for a workshop on this topic, only to end up creating it myself! Out of that workshop came this blog. Here you'll find resources, recommended readings, and related links, all aimed at helping you to make your literacy instruction motivational, memorable, and, finally! manageable. Definitely read through past posts for ideas you can use in your classroom tomorrow!

If you're just starting out on this road to teaching novels successfully, I'd recommend that you first jump over to my How to Teach a Novel lens at Squidoo.com. There you'll find an abbreviated version of the workshop I've presented numerous times. It's a great jumping off point, with lots of sites to explore.

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling | Tech, teach and lead | Scoop.it

Three things really fascinate me about the new digital writing toolkit: the possibility of increased immersion in a story, the ability to represent choice, and the way the audience can influence the story. I'll take them one by one.

Chad Clark's curator insight, July 23, 2013 11:41 AM

A “good tale well told” transcends the medium by which it is relayed.  Credit is due Naomi Alderman for saying as much, or rather writing as much in this brief but value-packed article.  (At one point she confesses to being an instructor of creative writing as well as digital media; her article resonates with familiarity of those two areas of expertise.)  For additional reading re: Immersion, I recommend Frank Rose’s The Art of Immersion.   As to “representing choice” – am I the only avid reader who as a kid tried to get into the Choose Your Own Adventure books but ultimately preferred my bound page to be more of “Calvinoesque”?  (And for the record, I still hate seeing the following words in a periodical: to continue reading, turn to page…) 

 

But with digital media the other shoe has fallen. 

 

In conclusion Alderman speaks to audience participation. I can’t help but think of The Rocky Horror Picture Show whenever I see those two words – audience and participation – together, but alas, I wish I could think Star Wars, Episode One.  You see just last night I watched a 12 minute video simply titled “What If Star Wars: Episode I" Was Good?” This video is one man’s take on how to make EpiOne better, er, um, good even.  Now I’m a huge Star Wars fan, having seen Episode IV: A New Hope when I was only 5.  I’m also a digital media guy myself – so says the University of Washington and after George Lucas destroyed my childhood with Episodes I, II, and III, one other digital media guy takes 12 minutes and tells a story that, well, that if made into a movie wouldn’t have bit the big dead Chihuahua. (Come on, EpiOne was really bad.) 

 

But with the world of Star Wars fans (nerds?) out there, don’t you think George, er, Mr. Lucas, could have made a better film if he’d have listened?  I think so – and so even with all the beautiful digital effects, it all comes down to a good tale well told and in this case, that needed audience participation.   

Jess Gronholm's curator insight, July 26, 2013 12:23 PM

This is a great article about the future of storytelling. I love this point. "Art and science (or technology) are often imagined to be totally separate – but this is not, and never has been, true."
