Blooms Digital Web Tools

Blooms Digital Web Tools | Transforming our practice - school libraries | Scoop.it

description by Edudemic

 

"Designed with the educator in mind this website looks at the array of digital tools and cross references them to the new Bloom action verbs. The tools were selected based on several criteria. First, they had to be free or at least offer a free version as a minimum package. Second, they had to work within our district’s filtering system. Third, they had to be educationally sound and not littered with inappropriate ads.

 

"Easily navigated, this website provides the experiences associated with each Bloom’s level. Once an educator selects a tool he or she is directed to subsequent page which offers the user a more detailed description of the tool along with additional tools that match the same criteria. In some cases, pdf documents are included that provide directions, additional ideas, student/teacher examples, and additional navigational links. A toolbar on the left allows the user to select a tag such as blogging, podcasting, cartoons, etc. This tag instantly takes the user to the Bloom’s category under which the link is housed."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

An outstanding piece of work, curating a tremendous amount of resources and information is a most effect manner. Kudos to creators Kathy Beck and Karen Van Vliet.

 

Just a reminder that we often forget Bloom said their are 3 domains for learning. What's illustrated and described here, and most often referenced by educators, is the Cognitive Domain. The other two, Affective and Psychomotor, are too often forgetten or overlooked.

 

Bloom said there needs to be a balance among the three. My observation does not minimize the excellence of Beck and Van Vliet's work.

Great ideas for literacy promotion in schools.  

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, December 27, 2013 7:16 PM

I've sat through many librarian interviews lead by principals.  A standard question I always hear is "How will you promote reading?"   Sometimes the answers I hear surprise me.  A.R. is something I've heard frequently.  I challenge you to imagine a world without A.R. What would you do then?  I would recommend studying this webpage for ideas. 

 

If you're fortunate to already be in a school library you might find some fresh ideas for promoting reading on your campus.

Science supports theory reading makes us better human beings

Science supports theory reading makes us better human beings | Transforming our practice - school libraries | Scoop.it

Does reading fiction make you a better, less self-absorbed person? Finally, science has given its approval to one of the literary world's most cherished ideas about the value of literature. Even though the study only measured short-term benefits, it was taken to stand for a wider truth about the morally improving effects of the stuff, the notion that it makes you a better, more empathic person.

Assessing Information Literacy Skills with TRAILS and ResearchReady | EasyBib Blog

Assessing Information Literacy Skills with TRAILS and ResearchReady | EasyBib Blog | Transforming our practice - school libraries | Scoop.it

Traditionally, educators have assessed their students’ information literacy skills through reading their papers and grading their research projects. But as more educators are seeing the benefits of formative assessmentand there is less time to assign research projects, many educators are turning to other means of evaluating the research skills students need to succeed.

Many educators have found that TRAILS is a great way to assess student understanding of important research skills. TRAILS is a freely available assessment platform created by Kent State University Libraries. These assessments are aligned with both Common Core State Standards and American Association of School Librarians’ Standards for the 21st-Century Learner. The assessment content covers research skills for students in grades 3, 6, 9 and 12.

Anita Vance's curator insight, October 27, 2013 11:59 AM

My experience withTRAILS was outstanding.  The results of the assessments helped to drive curriculum development to target areas of student response.  The assessment improved our team approach to research skill development and solidified awareness of key components for ethical and productive strategies.

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part II

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part II | Transforming our practice - school libraries | Scoop.it

This article is the second part of the excellent guide written by Robin Good and published on MasterNewMedia in these recent days.
The Part I that I curated and excerpted a summary is here: http://sco.lt/9BOLdB

Here is an excerpt of second part:
"I (Robin Good) continue my humble exploration of what I have identified as possible areas for betterment, innovation and improvement of content curation tools, by identifying and describing some of those that appear most needed.

8) Preservation
One of the official digital curator key responsibilities lays specifically in archiving and preserving anything of value that is collected, just like a museum curator does.
For these reasons professional content curation tools will have to include among their features the ability to:
a) fully photograph,
b) archive and
c) create a searchable index of any such web content, page or information resource being curated.

9) Private Collections
The need to offer “private” collections / streams that can be accessed via subscription or sold as downloadable PDF (or in other formats) will also come of time soon.

10) Full Capture Abilities
The curator needs to equipped with qualified tools that can allow him to easily clip a short text excerpt from a page, a whole web page, an image or parts of a video.
Few content curation tools excel on this front, and none does a great job of creating screenshot-based web page collections that contain full page screenshots.

11) Monetization
All these platform have an opportunity to gradually discover and identify the most valuable curators in their community and to support them by either having relevant brands sponsoring specific verticals, via sponsored stories or via paid subscriptions.

12) Content Types Begging To Be Curated
Most of the curated content today are news, images and products.
Still, there are some areas that completely lack, or offer only one or two useful and easy-to-use curation tools.
Take for example audio curation. There's no dedicated curation tool that I know of that can help me curate podcasts, audio recordings and newscasts easily.

13) Beyond News & Articles
Until now we have been used to see the work of the content curator give life to streams of news stories via a Twitter or Facebook channel.
In the future it is very likely that beyond these popular uses, you will see the work of content curators specifically contribute to the creation of valuable collections in the form of actual: books, magazines, textbooks, video playlists - programmes, shopping directories and more others.

14) Specialized Curation Tools
I expect new curation tools to diversify themselves from the crowded competition by specializing in a specific area and for a specific group of users.

Each point is analyzed with more information and external links. Read full, interesting and detailed article here:

Embedded Librarian 101: How to Get Started | Transforming our practice - school libraries | Scoop.it

As librarians, we can’t wait for students to ask us questions. We know that! That’s why we’ve had “virtual” reference services since the early 2000′s. But it’s simply not enough to have an online presence. The key is being online where the students are. For most universities, this means the learning management system.
