Nice collection of infographic tools from an expert in digital curation.

 

David Baker's curator insight, April 3, 2014 11:47 AM

I am adding this to my seminar resources. Having another set of tools for my teachers to create their PIE Infographics is important.  Creating visual representations of learning is such a powerful learning for teachers and is a skill they can transfer to their classroom and for students to create in the classroom.

Corrective Feedback : User the language power tools to process your assignments | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

Teachers sometimes hesitate to assign writing tasks because of the correction work it creates. However, students benefit from frequent writing practice and the corrective feedback they receive. One solution is for teachers to work longer hours. Another is to find ways to integrate automatic corrective feedback into second language pedagogy.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 1, 7:56 PM

Check out this activity from The Common Core Writing Book by Gretchen Owocki. One of the activities she suggests is  using a 3-2-1 strategy to help students summarize text. The student must choose three key words, find two phrases that are important and also one quote. They can then share this with a small group, and move to sharing in larger groups. The post suggests that this may used for the following (quoted from the post):

  1.  Summarizing text
  2. Individual accountability for reading
  3. Discourse facilitation
  4. Low-stakes writing
  5. Strategy for comprehending complex and lengthy text
  6. Structure to enable "teacher as facilitator"
