"There are a variety of iPad apps that teachers can use to create different kinds of video materials. In this post, you will get to learn about the apps you can use to create different video projects. I have divided the video categories into three main sections: apps for creating tutorials for flipped classroom, apps for creating stop motion videos, and apps for creating documentary videos."

K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy - Edutopia

In this six-part series, I will highlight apps useful for developing higher order thinking skills in grades K-5 classrooms. Each list will highlight a few apps that connect to the various stages on Bloom's continuum of learning. Given the size and current exponential growth of the app market, I will also assist educators in setting criteria necessary to identify apps that maintain the integrity of teaching for thinking.

This looks like a great series - I reviewed a few of the posts and they are very well organized. Each one provides a summary review of a component of Bloom's Taxonomy and an explanation of connections with apps. Then there are specific examples of apps provided. A great resource for diversifying your instruction.

by Ava Arsaga, Parent Cortical Mass This week is all about education. It’s also been a rough week for education reformers. First, civil rights activists filed complaints in three cities. School closings, they say, disproportionately affect African American neighborhoods. They called the policies “the new Jim Crow.” Second, new research on teacher evaluations using value-add measures was published. Researchers believe many of the measures “actually aren't very good quality” and recommend postponing

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 19, 2014 3:50 PM

I've got a webinar coming up with a group of researchers and I'm going to use parts of this article and the research it sites when I'm with them.


It's a short but terrific piece laying out WHY data is not the core for decision-making, but stories are. There is definitely a role for data, but only as a supporting character in your story. Data is not the hero.


Data wrapped in stories are far better than data alone as research has shown us for years. If you are still operating under the notion that data convinces, then get with the story program for better results.

It is difficult to over emphasize just how influential it is to build your key data points into a story. It also helps to make the data visually clear to understand.

5 tips for teaching 'grit' in the classroom

Allan Shaw's curator insight, May 22, 2014 6:03 PM

Like others for whom I have much respect, I prefer the term 'resilience' to 'grit' but that is a minor matter.

 

There is much to reflect upon and use in this post that is positive and while the debate on whether resilience  can be taught explicitly will continue, there is no doubt that the school culture and climate can contribute much towards acknowledging and cultivating resilience.

 

Schools are places where the quality of relationships is critical and thus resilience can be cultivated, but I do not agree with the statement "..when students do demonstrate perseverance, do not tell them good job." That is a simplistic comment. Children and young adults, like older adults, need positive reinforcement and encouragement. All humans need acknowledgement of a good well done and we all wish to develop a positive student culture and climate in a school. We do not want students doing something just for the acknowledgement, but being relational creatures, communication and positive acknowledgement assist in our development.
