Free Technology for Teachers: Ten Good Video Sources for Science Students and Teachers

Free Technology for Teachers: Ten Good Video Sources for Science Students and Teachers | Teckieness | Scoop.it

"One of the great things about teaching today is the wealth of educational videos that are available on the web. No longer do we have to flip through catalogs, order a VHS cassette, wait for it to arrive, and hope that it is as good as the catalog made it sound. Now we can quickly access and screen educational videos. In fact, there is so much available that the challenge is sifting through it all."

Richard Byrne has put together a great list of 10 websites that provide excellent videos for science. Sites include:

* The Spangler Effect from Steve Spangler Science (demonstrations of science experiments)

* Gooru - a website that has been mentioned in this Scoop.it. "Gooru is a service that aims to provide teachers and students with an extensive collection of videos, interactive displays, documents, diagrams, and quizzes for learning about topics in math and science." If you have not taken the opportunity to check out Gooru it is worth your time.

* MIT Tech TV which has thousands of videos.

More information on these sites and seven additional sites is available in the post!

"The Common Core’s Anchor Standard 6 for writing in grades K–12 requires students to “use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others”. Here are some ideas for meeting this standard (besides the obvious use of technology—word processing).

What tools are there to help students PRODUCE writing online? Lauren Davis identifies five areas that for producing writing:

* Collaborative tools

* Grammar and language resources

* Fun prompts to get their juices flowing

* Brainstorming and drafting graphic organizers.

* Research tools

What tools are there to help students PUBLISH writing online?
* Magazines

* Online contests

* Class e-newsletter or newspaper

* Book review website

* Class blog or website

There are links to many resources thoughout this post and in many cases specific suggestions are provided for grade levels. If you are not using online tools with your students this post provides great resources to help you begin the process.

mshudson's curator insight, April 7, 2013 12:04 PM

Very interesting! I use some of the tools highlighted but must expand my application to include consistent student usage.

Part 4… Creativity In The Digital Classroom… Amazing Web Sites... Are They In Your School? | Teckieness | Scoop.it

“So many times we encourage students to be creative, but we don’t always provide an explanation nor assessment. I think it is important to provide a definition. You can see that Dictionary.com defines creativity as ‘the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination: the need for creativity in modern industry; creativity in the performing arts’.”

This is the last in a series of posts on Creativity in the Classroom, with a focus on websites that help promote creativity. Included in this post are:

* Arts Edge, a wonderful source from the Kennedy Arts Center that "offers free, standards-based teaching materials for use in and out of the classroom. It also offers professional development resources, student materials, and guidelines for arts-based instruction and assessment."

* Exploratorium - "a twenty-first-century learning laboratory, an eye-opening, always-changing, playful place to explore and tinker"

* Google Lit Trips - a great way to explore literature and Google Earth

* Odyssey of the Mind - "an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college."

* Diffen - a website that allows you to compare anything

An additional ten websites are listed that provide a range of online learning opportunities that help promote creativity!

This infographic explores three traditional learing theories: Behaviorism, Constructiorism (which I know as constructivism), Cognitivism; and a learning theory of the digital age: Connectivism. As well as providing a list of theorists the infographic also shows how learning occurs, influencing factors, the role of memory, how transfer occurs, a brief way to explain each type of learning, beneifits and problems as well as several ways to look at the theories as a whole.

Updated Assessments Focused on Common Core Criteria

Updated Assessments Focused on Common Core Criteria | Teckieness | Scoop.it

"Over the last few years, student products have changed.  The Common Core State Standards force us to focus specifically on new sets of criteria.

And so we find ourselves independently developing new rubrics and assessments.

Happily, my/our dear friend Kathy Schrock stepped up to address the wheel-reinvention issue.

Her updated assessment Guide covers assessment options for a variety of new products, including wikis, Glogs, blogs, threaded discusssion, and tweets.

And her latest content includes CCSS-aligned assessments."

If you teach digital citizenship in any grade from preK to 12 the site that Richard Byrne discusses is worth checking out.

This infographic starts with the Caveman 50th to 40th century B.C., looking at the technology available as well as how education worked. We define this period as a time of the hunter-gatherer, and learning was hands-on, taught through stories and songs. Technology consisted of sharpened stones, paints created by natural materials and stone knives. Additional time periods explored are Ancient Greece, Medieval England, Victorian, Mid-20th Century and Today. An interesting look back and one that students might also enjoy looking at!
