The Secret to a Great BOOK PASS (and 30 Middle School Titles to Use!)

The Secret to a Great BOOK PASS (and 30 Middle School Titles to Use!) | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Joy Sexton writes: "We all want our students hooked on reading, right?  I’ve been using reading workshop with my classes since 1995, and that’s actually when I started doing the Book Pass! I read about it in a red teacher binder of English activities (I don’t even recall the name of it now), and it’s been a hit every year. When we finish the pass, I have students swarming over the books, asking me to reserve titles for them, students going to the school library and the public library just to get a copy when mine have been depleted, ETC.!  So read on and I’ll explain some tips and of course, the “secret” to a fantastic Book Pass experience!"

This is like a quick and easy version of Speed Dating with a Book! I like the idea of the book pass, especially since our students are now required to bring their planners to the library. This would be something they could staple in and have with them for every library visit, so they'd always have a list ready of books they want to read!

Online Tools and Resources That Support Academic Honesty

Online Tools and Resources That Support Academic Honesty | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Students have invented lots of ways to cheat and, with the growing use of technology in education, new cheating options appear on a regular basis.

Although it seems an overwhelming problem to address, there’s no need to despair. Do your due diligence–stop violations and cultivate honesty among students by also finding technology that works for you.

Check out the list of 10 edtech tools below that can help promote academic honesty while fitting nicely into daily routines and improving the quality of your educational efforts.

Maria Angélica Morales Valencia's curator insight, September 6, 12:12 AM
Students use technology in most of the cases in a wrong way. For example, to cheat but exists some resources and tools that help teachers to promote honesty, some of them are: unplag that is able to recognize coincidences between students texts or homework and the place where was taken, this tool helps students to make a pre-check to look for unconscious similarities, ProctorU thanks to this tool, teachers can observed all students movements, what are they doing during tests, Google Scholar this resourse is so useful to find scholarly literature more appropriate for academic tasks without plagiarism.

Interesting Tools
Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, September 21, 1:45 PM
Some great resources listed here. I would argue, though, the best way to combat cheating is create engaging assessments that students want to do and learn from.

Why Educators Must Innovate #IMMOOC - Leading, Learning, Questioning

Why Educators Must Innovate #IMMOOC - Leading, Learning, Questioning | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Here’s my worry: Schools that don’t innovate are going to look like this, and it likely won’t take 15 years to happen. In all likelihood, it’s probably happening more places than we’d like to admit right now.

If we don’t change, we’re going to end up looking like that picture appears to us now–irrelevant, a relic of the past. For some (maybe even many) what we were doing now will be nearly unrecognizable in the not so distant future. In hindsight, some of what we understood as best practice not too long ago seems that way.

We can’t control the fact that our schools will continue to grow, but if we don’t start getting some movement now and gaining momentum today, we’re going to end up so big and so settled in that our own inertia will keep us from moving forward. With each day that passes without innovation, we only make it harder to make change happen in the future.

Change matters. Innovation happens, with purpose.

Victor Ventura's curator insight, September 26, 9:02 AM
Whatever it takes to be effective is on the board for discussion and use. Innovation doesn't necessarily mean new! Public School Education, as we know it, is at a crossroad. It is crucial that all parties involved, be ready and willing to meet the expectations of our communities.

Teachers need to receive training on models of change. Teachers should be trained in identifying their own professional development needs based on their classroom performance, areas that they aren’t performing up to par based on their own personal self-assessments as well as feedback from students, colleagues, and supervisors followed by intentional processes to help make positive changes in their work environments.
