How Can Teachers Prepare Kids for a Connected World? | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it

"Educators are always striving to find ways to make curriculum relevant in students’ everyday lives. More and more teachers are using social media around lessons, allowing students to use their cell phones to do research and participate in class, and developing their curriculum around projects to ground learning around an activity. These strategies are all part of a larger goal to help students connect to social and cultural spaces."

A look at Henry Jenkins work on participatory learning and PLAY (Participatory Learning and You). So what is PLAY? "...'a mode of experimentation, of testing materials, trying out new solutions, exploring new horizons,' Jenkins said. It’s how kids interact with games – throwing themselves in without reading the rules, testing the limits and feeling free to try and fail."

This post provides a number of examples, discusses assesement and play, and provides links to additional articles on the subject.

"If helping your students write papers is a part of your school day, you probably already know that there are enough issues to focus on without having to spend a lot of time teaching your students how to build a bibliography and correctly cite their sources. Your time is likely better spent helping create a focused, concise piece of work that uses excellent grammar and sentence structure.

 

"There are a lot of online bibliography tools out there that can help students learn to build bibliographies and ensure that their citations are correct, without them (and you) spending hours pouring over MLA, APA, or Chicago handbooks. The options include browser extensions, templates, and online citation builders (where you plug in your resource and the citation is generated for you."
