What You (Really) Need to Know

What You (Really) Need to Know | Teaching writing to children with technology | Scoop.it
The digital age has changed more than how we learn. It’s changed what we need to learn.

 

Personally, I've seen some disconnect between the differentiated instruction that goes on in elementary schools and the lecture format of some HUES courses. I prefer discussing topics and fleshing out meaning, which, thankfully, has happened in all of my EDUC courses. Anthropology and history courses were a different story.

In today’s post i will present two short videos that will hopefully change what some think about teaching. The following videos are among the top educative videos online .

The Tech Curve: Managing Google Docs in the Classroom | Teaching writing to children with technology | Scoop.it
"Teachers love how easy it is to collaborate with their students, not having to worry about losing the file and all the other bonuses that using Docs brings, but tracking down assignments can be a nightmare. I've covered this before from the teachers perspective and the students perspective here, but I'll run through how I do it step by step."

Video: "Being A Good Writer: Writing Tips and Strategies from Lucy Calkins"

Nuggets of insight and wisdom from Lucy Calkins, developer of the Writers Workshop. Now that we're about to embark on writing the narratives for our Capstone Projects, I thought it would be inspiring for everyone in the class to hear her speak. 

 

Some favorite quotes:  

 

"Read your writing like it's gold."

 

"Listen to your writing. Listen to your classmate's writing, and you'll  make a world of difference."
