Free Infographic Maker - Venngage | The Charles Schultz Philosophy | Scoop.it

Venngage is an online tool that facilitates visual story-telling via eye-catching charts, maps, icons, and visuals that can be used on infographics, reports, or posters. There are dozens of templates for users to explore, all sorted into categories such as statistics, timelines, geography, and comparison. After signing up for a free account, users can create templates for reporting budget projections (in the Reports tab) or informational posters to describe procedures (in the Posters tab). The Posters section may be of special interest to anyone looking to sleekly incorporate graphs and charts into a poster presentation for the classroom or at a conference. While some of the templates require a monthly subscription, others are free and available for anyone to use. [MMB]

"Kids Picture Dictionary is just what you would imagine it to be: a dictionary, for kids, with pictures.  This picture dictionary has something extra special built in, it includes a self record feature so that kids (teachers or parents) can record their own voice to record sentence examples.  Each word includes a picture, an audio recording of the word, and the ability for kids (teachers or parents) to record their own sentence." iLearn Technology blog

10 Ideas for Creating Literacy Centers With Technology

10 Ideas for Creating Literacy Centers With Technology | The Charles Schultz Philosophy | Scoop.it

Why use this Learning Center Approach- well many elementary teachers ask what they can do with only a handful of devices in their classrooms. Similarly, we often discussed the role of Interactive White Boards in a class that should be more student-centric. By taking this center approach, teachers can put the technology in the hands of their students, differentiate their instruction, and create multiple opportunities for learning.

Twitter For Learning: 7 Ideas For Using Hashtags In The Classroom | Instructional Technology Solutions

Twitter For Learning: 7 Ideas For Using Hashtags In The Classroom | Instructional Technology Solutions | The Charles Schultz Philosophy | Scoop.it

by Anibal Pacheco

 

"If you are an Educator looking to use Twitter in the classroom you might have noticed most tweets include a #Hashtag.

 

"The use of the # sign with a word attached to it makes up one. Hashtags trace their history to IRC (Internet Relay Chat) networks where they are used to label groups and topics. When Twitter came into the social media scene users quickly adopted hashtags as a way to group Twitter messages based on a particular subject or topic. The question now is how do you use them to engage students in the classroom. The first thing you need to do is create a hashtag identifying your subject, project, workshop or any other event you want to track.

 

"I would recommend you search hashtag directory services like tagdef.com, twubs.comand hashtags.org to see if somebody is using the one you want. This is crucial because you do not want to start using a hashtag or host a Twitter Chat only to find out somebody halfway across the world has already been using it for months. Twitter does not have formal rules about hashtag ownership, but as a matter of netiquette it is prudent to first check. You could be reported for spam, or worst blocked due to using someone else’s hashtag."

Now the time has come for NEW INNOVATION: "First:  Simplicity of Set UP. The user could take the computer out of the box, plug it in, and be ready to go." Steve Jobs

The design of the product comes first, the development of the hardware had to follow to fit the design, never the other way around. Design goes into the very inner workings of a device.

The distribution of medals shows the existing Olympic inequalities: The overall patterns are a reflection of wealth distribution in the world, raising the question whether money can buy sporting success. Besides investment in sports by those countries who can afford it, the medal tables also reflect a battle for global supremacy in political terms.

Read It Daddy!: Why schools need libraries! One little girl's perspective | The Charles Schultz Philosophy | Scoop.it

Yesterday she came home for the first time with a school library book. The book choice wasn't important (she chose an illustrated book about Pinocchio - based on the Disney movie) but what was vitally important was her reaction to being allowed into the school library for the first time, with her own library ticket, to make her own choice of a book to take home for a couple of weeks.

Teach Informational Texts Alongside The Literature You Love | Caitlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher

Teach Informational Texts Alongside The Literature You Love | Caitlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher | The Charles Schultz Philosophy | Scoop.it

by Caitlin Tucker

 

"The Common Core places new emphasis on the importance of reading and analyzing complex nonfiction and informational texts. This has many English teachers feeling like their literature is under attack, but students fall in love with stories. We don’t need to lose our stories in our transition to the Common Core.

 

"Each week, I do “story time” with my high school students. They sit on the floor and I read them a children’s story. At the beginning of the year, they think I am nuts. In fact, one students said in his evaluation of the class, “I think story time was the most enjoyable [class routine]. At the beginning of the year I thought it was really weird that we were doing it when we were students in high school, but now I’m really happy that we do it because its a great way to end the class after a long day.” Another student gushed, ”I LOVED story time, it made me feel like I was back in Kindergarten, it was always something I looked forward to at the end of the class!”

 

"Clearly, students of all ages love stories. There is nothing in the Common Core that says we have to lose our stories. What has been interesting for me is to change my approach to teaching literature. Now,  I ground the stories we read into real world events and issues so students see those connections more visibly. This is a great way to pull in those complex nonfiction pieces and use them to deepen our students understanding of the novels, plays and poetry they read in English."
