AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 21, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a great example of how to use the Infographic format to educate and share knowledge with others.  It make sense that a teacher would do it.  Fantastic!

Audrey's curator insight, March 8, 5:38 PM

Once you start using these two learning strategies teaching becomes a real pleasure as students will be teaching the topics.  In addition they will be able to give evaluative and analytical commentary.

Nuno Magalhães Ribeiro's curator insight, April 10, 9:38 AM

Os ebooks são um tipo de aplicação multimédia que se impôs nos últimos anos como uma séria alternativa à tecnologia analógica baseada em papel, fruto das muitas vantagens que o suporte digital proporciona para melhorar a experiência da leitura. O Epic Book Guide, descrito neste artigo, é interessante na medida em que ajuda a compreender que apps de leitura de ebooks existem, como as utilizar, para que servem e onde as obter; onde e como descarregar ebooks em vários formatos a partir de sites online; onde encontrar edições gratuitas de livros eletrónicos na Internet e como desenvolver edições de autor em que cada pessoa pode publicar e distribuir um ebook da sua autoria.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 12, 6:44 AM

Do you have a set of dice in your classroom? If not  you may want to locate a set. This infographic provides 36 brainbreaks for students, all based on rolling the dice. Although many of these activities may not be new to you the fact that the decision is made by rolling two dice is a great way to engage your students, and to teach them a lesson in probability. In fact, if you choose to do this over a period of time you might also record each activity and at some point discuss probability with them. You might also print a copy.This would allow one student each time to roll the dice, and the other to read out the brain break.

Please be aware that you will need to fill in a form to access the graph. If you find this version too difficult for your students you will find a simpler version of it at http://www.yourtherapysource.com/files/Roll_Some_Fun_Freebie2.pdf

Check out three versions of Bloom's Taxonomy in this visualization. It includes the original Bloom's, the revised Bloom's, and adds on the Digital Bloom's, which provides a range of suggestions as to how students may demonstrate each level. This is another visual that you may want to share with other teachers in your school.

I love the clarity of the digital verbs! I think the specific content of the "doing" might allow for a bit of repositioning in the  chart, but it's certainly a great starting point in analyzing the tasks and output of a lesson.

As a future teacher I'm on the lookout for the latest in networking that I could use in the classroom, and this is one of those things. If it's easier for my students to communicate, they'll be more likely to study and work together on projects and homework.
