Selecting Digital Content for Your School: A How-To Guide | Education Elements | Technology for school | Scoop.it

"School leaders often ask us: “How do I select the right content for my blended classroom?”  To help answer this question, we’ve developed a “How-to Select Digital Content” info-graphic and guide."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 28, 2013 10:07 PM

This infographic provides great ideas on how to select contentn for blended classrooms. There are four recommended steps:

1. Define your needs.

2. Research to determine which tools will best meet those needs.

3. Explore the tools that you find or ask vendors to come in and/or demonstrate when possible.

4. Select the tools.

And before final choices are made share the information with faculty. To help with theresearch phase there is a rubric within the infographic.

I think Pinterest is great for teachers to collect their ideas, but their are some things posted on Pinterest that are not appropriate for students to see.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 21, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a great example of how to use the Infographic format to educate and share knowledge with others.  It make sense that a teacher would do it.  Fantastic!

Audrey's curator insight, March 8, 2014 5:38 PM

Once you start using these two learning strategies teaching becomes a real pleasure as students will be teaching the topics.  In addition they will be able to give evaluative and analytical commentary.

iPurpose before iPad

iPurpose before iPad | Technology for school | Scoop.it

"The two above images are good examples of purposeful thinking about iPad usage in schools.

One, a screenshot of an oft-used tool known as 'iPad As.. by edtechteacher.org', focuses on what the iPad can be used for and provides links to various apps that can be utilised for those functions. It goes without saying that it is a very useful website for schools thinking about iPads. It provides nutshell explanations of a number of apps that relate to each iPad as… category as well as pricing. It’s a good introduction into the functionality of the iPad that counteracts the misconception of iPad as consumption NOT creation tool.

The other, The Padagogy Wheel, is one of many variations on applying Bloom’s Taxonomy of skills to iPad apps. It develops from the general learning action verbs/skills we want our students to acquire to technology based activities that relate to these skills and finally to a selection of apps that can support this development."
