Connie Wise's curator insight, January 3, 2013 3:54 PM

At a time when education technology is getting a lot of attention, there is no class time allocated to technology education. While school science classes ensure that everyone knows a little about atoms, planets and dinosaurs, there are no lessons on the working of a computer. Some argue that software experts should keep this hidden; we need teach this only to the computer science students.

However, just as we need to know about animal cells, it is vital to understand a little about computers. In today’s world, one may argue that this is more important than learning about rock formations. Basic concepts on operating systems like file management should be introduced in grade school.

Wallwisher & Google Docs as Online KWL Charts (and much more)

Wallwisher & Google Docs as Online KWL Charts (and much more) | Technology in Education-Utah | Scoop.it

Both Wallwisher and Google Docs are versitile, powerful, easy to use and free which enables teachers to use them frequently with their students and as a result, gain efficiencies in their classroom.  

 

For example, if your students have access to iPads or laptops, consider making Wallwisher part of your daily Do Now routine to get a feel for background knowledge prior to a difficult read, identify main idea in a Do Now excerpt, write a GIST statement, or propose a question about the text.

 

All student responses (text or images) are pinned on a Wallwisher bulletin board where they can be discussed, peer evaluated, or even posted on your class blog to be shared with other classes or parents.

Adjectives for the Word Graveyard: The Case Against "Good" and "Bad"

I know I scooped this a couple of months ago, but it has come around again.  A great resource for language arts, and a model, perhaps for uses in other content areas.

 

Try using this video as a lesson starter, without giving context.  It makes a solid point when choosing and using words in writing. Aligns well to CCSS Anchor Standard 3: Apply knowledge of language to understand how language functions in different contexts, to make effective choices for meaning or style, and to comprehend more fully when reading or listening.

 

To further push rigor, ask students to critique the video (and some of the comments) for improvement in clarity, and even point of view.

 

It's alarming that such a simple video about word choice would illicit such impassioned dialog.  Ahhh the power of words!
