Rubrics. Why Use Them? Why Embrace Them?

Rubrics. Why Use Them? Why Embrace Them? | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
I have recently been shocked at the fact that educators don't really see the need for a rubric. They either find them too specific or too vague. But, I am not really sure they are seeing the big pi...

A new infographic from An Ethical Island with a focus on rubrics provides an explanation as well as a section on:
* Why Use Rubrics? What can it improve?

* How to Use Rubrics? A guide for teachers.

Rubrics help students understand the expectations. This post provides information that may help you create rubrics that help students improve their ability to meet the requirements.

We are so far removed from inquiry based classrooms that curiosity is but a shadow. Students wait to be fed the learning, which isn't true learning if it is fed. True learning comes from asking our own questions and setting out on a quest to unravel the riddle we have created.

wonderful visual for the inquiry process - for educators and to share with students.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 3, 2014 10:51 PM

This is a quick view of Project Based Learning that may help your students (or teachers in your school new to PBL) understand the key components:

* Driving question or challenge

* Need to know

* Inquiry and innovation

* 21st century skills

* Student voice and choice

* Feedback and revision

* Publicly presented product

Project Based Learning is a great way for students to engage in authentic learning projects. For more information on Project Based Learning (and lots of great resources) check out the Buck Institute for Learning website located at http://bie.org/

They have been around for over 25 years and recently revamped their website.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 17, 2013 6:28 PM

This infographic discusses how audio books may increase students reading scores. The infographic is split into a number of sections:

* The Problem in National

* The Benefits of Spoken, Sophisticated Language

* How Audio Books Help

A few of the statistics in this post are below.

* Students who don't read by 3rd grade are 4 times more likely not to graduate from high school.

* Only 32% of 4th grade students are proficient readers.

Many infographics that we find provide evidence but neglect to provide the resources to help us assess the evidence. This infographic provides links to over 20 resources that were used in its' creation. In addition, the website that posted the infographic, Tales2Go, provides audio books for students and provides access to additional resources on their website (http://www.tales2go.com/). Audio books available through Tales2Go are primarily for students in grades K - 5.

2013's Complex Social Media Landscape in One Chart

2013's Complex Social Media Landscape in One Chart | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

When Brian Solis introduced the first Conversation Prism in 2008, the world was a seemingly simpler place. There were 22 social media categories, each of which had just a handful of brands.

 

Flash forward to 2013, and the latest Conversation Prism has four additional categories with at least six brands in each. Like other Conversation Prisms, the data visualization attempts to illustrate the array of social media choices available to marketers.

While the 2008 chart looked like a flower, the latest one resembles a kaleidoscope. Solis, a prominent social media marketing expert, says redoing the chart this time around has been instructive. "Things are changing so fast," he says. "We don't even realize [the landscape] is shifting."

 

The chart also points out that, for many, membership in the social media ecosystem is fleeting. While some brands like Xanga, Kyte and Utterz have disappeared, others that weren't around five years ago — like Path and Banjo — are now among category leaders.

Denis Lundie's curator insight, July 8, 2013 5:23 AM

Social media, as expected, are proliferating and also being embedded in collaboration applications. They can be public or private. Different social media appeal to different segments of the population for different reasons. Individuals can, and do, join different social networks for different interests or relationships in their lives. Finally, they are quite simply applications, with different functionality, will behave differently.

 

Much has been made in media and education circles of Facebook and Twitter, ranging from the inherent dangers to teaching by means of these, and how to integrate them into education. Policies have been developed around them. This picture should dispel the hype surrounding the most obvious social networks, as unique threats or opportunities, for learning.

 

IT strategies and policies should not developed around individual applications, especially not social networks. e-Safety education especially, should focus on responsible management of privacy, irrespective the medium. Teaching & learning opportunities should be sought in social media that are built for learning, or embedded in rapidly evolving learning applications.

We have so many ways of communicating, Brian Solis had to design a novel way of expressing all the ways we can express ourselves!
