Neat infographic on evaluation of web resources.

Tina Jameson's curator insight, October 15, 2015 10:04 PM

So much information and so little time!  This infographic and webpage provide clear guidance that teachers can use to help their students be more selective about the sources they choose to use.  

ICTE Solutions Australia's curator insight, December 28, 2015 11:43 PM

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.

Students need a personal connection to the material, whether that's through engaging them emotionally or connecting the new information with previously acquired knowledge (often one and the same). Without that, students may not only disengage and quickly forget, but they may also lose the motivation to try.

Understand & Design for Adult Learners:


1. Adults need to know why they need to learn something
2. Adults need to learn ‘experientially’
3. Adults approach learning as problem-solving
4. Adults learn best when the topic is of immediate value.

Judith Peterson's curator insight, September 29, 2015 10:08 PM

Students love to take selfies, videos of their friends, and videos of things that interest them and post them on the Internet. They need to know that once they have posted them on the Internet, they can never take them back. They no longer have control of who sees their posts and what they can be used for. They need to know that they can put themselves in harms way by posting private information. Bullying on the Internet may be exciting or funny one day but they become liable for the harm they do. They need to learn to be responsible with the powerful tool they clutch.

Four Ed Tech Tips & Tools to Revamp Multiple Choice Assessments | Imagine Easy Solutions

Four Ed Tech Tips & Tools to Revamp Multiple Choice Assessments | Imagine Easy Solutions | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

 

What two words are more symbolic of education in the United States than “multiple choice”? Multiple choice questions are used on state assessments, SATs, and other high-stakes tests, so schools are stuck with them. However, teachers can use educational technology to ensure multiple choice testing is fair and valid for students.

Chris Carter's insight:

Excellent example of improved process flow and feedback through technology. Though there are specific tools identified, one can easily substitute apps and services. The important thing is the process flow.

Rube Goldberg Machines and the Engineering Design Process - Tchers' Voice

Rube Goldberg Machines and the Engineering Design Process - Tchers' Voice | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
Rube Goldberg – a comically involved, complicated invention, laboriously contrived to perform a simple operation. ~ Webster’s New World Dictionary

When Rube Goldberg walked away from his engineering career in 1904, it’s unlikely he realized the impact that he would have on 21st century education. I find it ironic that many educators at the forefront of STEM education find inspiration from his cartoons, like The Simple Alarm Clock, that were published in newspapers across the United States over 100 years ago.

When I initially share the Engineering Design Process with my middle school students (see below), I like to have them collaboratively plan, construct and then use the iterative process to continuously refine a Rube Goldberg Machine.
