Reading level - Search Help | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Sometimes you may want to limit your search results to a specific reading level. For example, a second language learner may want more basic sites, a middle school teacher looking for educational material for her students may look for intermediate resources, and a scientist searching for the latest findings from the experts may want to limit results to those at advanced reading levels.

Nik Peachey's insight:

Very useful for lower level language students or those teaching them. The split into 3 levels is a bit basic, but can still sav a lot of time.

Mike Dilger's curator insight, November 21, 2013 6:13 AM

This method might make it a bit easier when looking for differentiated material  for your classes.  Remember, in Schoology you can deliver individual material to one student or set up groups within your class and deliver to a group as well.  This research technique may save a bit of time.

10 Lessons in Digital Literacy | PeacheyPublications.com | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

This e-booklet contains a collection of ten lesson plans to help you develop students' digital literacies and critical thinking skills. Based around authentic infographics the lessons start by using discussion to help students access what they already know about the topics and then move on to comprehension and a range of tasks that help students to explore the validity and authenticity of the information they find. They finish with structured research and presentation tasks that encourage students to work collaboratively and share what they have learned.

Ruby Rennie Panter's curator insight, May 12, 4:09 AM
Flashcards are very popular, although our current understanding of how learning happens shows that they have limited use. However, they could be helpful as part of a larger learning experience. Many learners have a lot of faith in being able to memorise things by using flashcards, so if it builds their confidence in some way there could also be value in that
