How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic]

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | Web 2.0 | Scoop.it
Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.

Fine to know...

Dafnord 's curator insight, August 10, 2013 1:55 AM

Kannataa seurata Viljenka Savlin skuuppauksia. Hän on pätevä tabletien  käyttäjä ja tabletien käytön kouluttaja, joka on aloittanut työskentelyn sähköisillä rihvelitauluilla ( Android, iPad, Windows) ja appseilla heti kun ne tulivat markkinoille ja otettiin käyttöön kouluissa. Vili on ollut European Schools Projectin slovenialainen koordinattori jo 1990-luvulta asti. Hän on kouluttanut vuosien ajan eurooppalaisia opettajia "Midnight Sun" Comenius 2 -kursseilla Inarissa, ks http://www.ejournal.fi/lapcom2/ . Vili on kouluttajana kurssilla jatkossakin. Kurssi pidetään Inarissa tällä kertaa 27.4. - 3.5. 2014, eikä keskikesällä, johtuen EU:n opetusalan koulutusjärjestelmän muutoksesta. Globaalista oppimisesta ja projektimenetelmistä kiinnostuneita suomalaisia opettajia on osallistunut kursseille, mutta he eivät voi saada EU:n apurahaa kurssia varten.

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Web 2.0 | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

How to dictate a book in Book Creator - Book Creator app | Blog | Web 2.0 | Scoop.it
When working with young students, typing can be quite a difficult thing for them to do.

In Book Creator, you can easily make a voice recording of the child telling the story but often having the written text there can make that story even more powerful.

Just recently, I was training some assistant teachers on how to use Book Creator. I run a lot of workshops, and Book Creator is one of my most used apps on my iPad.

I love it when I learn something new. So I just had to share this with you.
