August 2016: Pokémon Go in the classroom

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, August 17, 10:22 AM
17 August 2016

One of the many great honors / pleasures of my experience with Google Lit Trips has been to extent to which the Google Lit Trips project has inspired other real world learning experiences. RealWorldMath.org being among the many. 

Today I was pretty amused to find that the Google Lit Trips concept is being suggested as a model for converting Pokémon Go into a real world learning experience. 

I have to admit that my experience with Pokémon Go is little more than noticing that it is a world-wide craze that has been the butt of a lot of lemming jokes. 

Yet, discovering this Discovery Education article reminded me of my life-long attraction to the joys and discoveries resulting from divergent thinking when it comes to lesson planning.

So... I am hoping that anyone picking up on the suggestion of trying to blend Pokémon Go with the Google Lit Trips concept will consider sharing the experience and outcomes with me at: Jerome@GoogleLitTrips.org.

ACT Writing Test Scoring Rubric (New and Analytic)

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, October 23, 2015 10:11 AM

Interested in ACT's new analytic writing rubric? Since the beginning of ACT's writing assessment, student compositions have been scored holistically using a six-point guide. This year, ACT has adopted an analytic rubric which will be much more helpful as a tool for teachers and students in understanding where the writing succeeds and/or misses the mark.

I am not sure these are 'hacks' but there are some very good ideas on how to use Google Docs. For example, number 13 (The in-box form) gets students to submit links to their work onto a form. This means the teacher will have a list of student work and have easy access through the links!

Access to media files which are free of copyright restrictions. Despite it being common practice, cutting and pasting images from the internet or downloading audio and video files is often an infringement of copyright. A great source for teaching students about the importance of copyright and intellectual and creative integrity.
