New Learning Times : Article Newsela | Tech Tools in Education | Scoop.it

by Demetri Lales

 

"Newsela strives to complete two learning goals: the first is helping students improve their reading comprehension skills, and the second is teaching students about current events. The different Lexile levels open up the platform to a broad range of students who can manually adjust to the level that is right for them. Young students may find the ability to lower the Lexile level very valuable. It could enable them to understand current news more easily. Teachers may find the combinations of quizes and articles useful for testing students' reading comprehension levels."

Roundup of Open Education Resources for Common Core | Digital Learning Environments

Roundup of Open Education Resources for Common Core | Digital Learning Environments | Tech Tools in Education | Scoop.it

"Open education resources or OER for short, are educational resources that have been developed by educators to be shared in the public domain through licenses such as Creative Commons. Some OER resources provide teachers with flexible and high quality tools that help support their changes in instruction and practice in their transition to the Common Core Standards. With these licenses, OER materials can be reused, remixed, or redistributed for new educational purposes and provide an excellent source of meaningful standards-based activities for K-12 teachers.

 

"This article is a roundup of OER links and communities where educators can find appropriate and vetted materials to help make the shift to Common Core."

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.
