Free Technology for Teachers: Using Images as Research Prompts to Teach Google Search Strategies

Free Technology for Teachers: Using Images as Research Prompts to Teach Google Search Strategies | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

Over the last month I've shown the picture that you see during a number of presentations and workshops. I've used the picture to model using pictures to spark students' minds at the beginning of lessons on search strategies. This is a strategy that I've developed by borrowing ideas from Daniel Russell's Search ReSearch activities and Dan Meyer's strategy of using videos and pictures to prompt students to ask math questions.

Maria Lupandina's curator insight, April 20, 2013 11:27 AM

Удобный инструмент для управления поведением и даже успеваемостью учеников. Ученики "награждаются" баллами за проявление своей активности на уроке, как положительной так и отрицательной. В итоге выводятся таблицы, которые можно отправить родителям. На этом сайте есть возможность по умному рассадить учеников за партами, учитывая заданные критерии. Коллеги одной школы действуют с одними и теми же учениками, необходимо только выслать приглашение на сайт.

На выбор предлагается английский или испанский язык интерфейса, к сожалению, снова без русского.

Evernote for Students: The Ultimate Research Tool - Education Series

Evernote for Students: The Ultimate Research Tool - Education Series | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

Whether you’re writing a paper or studying for a test, odds are you spend more time gathering the pieces than actually working. Getting all of your notes together, hunting for quotes, and tracking down bibliographical information takes at least as long, if not longer, as writing the paper itself.

In a group situation, sharing research and collaborating on the production of one document is even more difficult without the proper tools.

Enter Evernote. For students, it’s an invaluable way to organize research and streamline the collaboration process. Here are some examples of how Evernote simplifies the student research process.

Christin Lopez's curator insight, October 23, 2014 7:15 AM

This site provides a way to have an online textbook that you can share with students. Even in the free edition, there are upgrade charges for features and more storage, you can create and join classes. 

 

It looks like this has the potential to be a great resource, but I found trouble right away while searching for a couple topics that I currently teach. There are not textbooks that have tags that help me find what I was looking for. This made me question if the information is on the site and not tagged, or is it too new that others have not uploaded information. I thought that the software creators would have obtained copyright privileges for a number of topics to start the site out. They would have been seed ideas to get the ball rolling. For you to upload PDFs, you need to have the copyright permissions. So while the potential is there for individualizing, it is not a quick jump right into it.

Cooperative Library Instruction Project

The Cooperative Library Instruction Project (CLIP) is a partnership between Chemeketa Community College, Lane Community College, Oregon State University, Western Oregon University and Willamette University whose mission is to design and develop  sharable, web-based tutorials to assist in library instruction and  information literacy.

CLIP is creating tutorials that specifically address the larger ideas of information literacy. The collection might look something like an interactive, online information literacy "text book" from which librarians or instructors anywhere can select and use pieces as they choose.

I think the way we physically 'do education' will shift once libraries like these catch on and in turn so wil lthe old pedagogical views that are being held on to (I hope)!
