Free Technology for Teachers: Read Write Think Timeline - A Timeline Tool for Almost All Devices

Free Technology for Teachers: Read Write Think Timeline - A Timeline Tool for Almost All Devices | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

"Read Write Think offers a bunch of great web, iOS, and Android applications for students. One of those that I recently learned about from David Kapuler is Read Write Think's Timeline creator. RWT Timline is available as a web app (Flash required), as an Android app, and as an iPad app. All three versions make it easy for students to create timelines for any series of events."

With this Timeline tool, students could create timelines of the plot of a story they've read. Or they could use it to plan the plot line of a story they're planning to write.

Dico Krommenhoek's curator insight, January 22, 3:11 AM

alle platforms... daar moeten we naar toe, lijkt me

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, January 29, 6:56 AM

This could be nice to plan or summarise a story, for reading or listening comprehension with students. Or for reviewing the stages of a task, or process (perhaps a process, for passive grammar). In teacher training it could be an option for self-observation, reviewing the stages of a lesson and how it went.

Herramienta para crear avatars de todo tipo: humanos, monstruos... perfecto para que los niño se inicien en su identidad digital

john dimitriou's curator insight, March 26, 6:58 AM

Asking students to create or identify themselves through an avatar to explain how something works or how it is made allows students to package information in a way that it helps them to unpack knowledge. Becoming personally and emotionally invested helps to engage learners. They take ownership.

Student Blogging: Creating a Rubric ~ Empathic Teacher

Student Blogging: Creating a Rubric ~ Empathic Teacher | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

by Jennifer Isgitt

 

"I’m ready to assess my students’ blogs from the first semester.  Does anyone else feel like the first time you assess any new assignment that you’re just trudging through murky molasses?  I’m so slow at the assessment piece right now.


"I’ve been looking around at student blogging rubrics as I try to decide which components a) I’ve actually taught and b) seem to represent my objectives for blogging as reader response.  I know that I should have had a rubric before we even started all of this, but I just jumped into the project with many unknowns.  


"I’ve learned that about the only way to force myself to do something new is to just start doing that thing before I have completely concrete plans.  My apologies to whichever group of students has to do the project first!...


"I’ve been trying to create a rubric, so I’ve been searching the web to see how other teachers are evaluating their student blogs.  Here are four that I like:"

"The consistent and effective use of Descriptive feedback in classrooms has become a popular strategy due to its positive influence on student learning. Based on the research of John Hattie, my colleague, Jason Lynn has given me an in-depth look at Hattie’s work and how we can use it in the classroom.

 

Although the research suggests that providing students with descriptive feedback has the largest influence on student learning, it can be difficult for teachers to find more time to provide this meaningful assessment as learning and assessment for learning tool with regularity."
