Cornelia Primosch is joined by Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, spokeswoman of the European Commission, to discuss the Commission’s Opening Up Education initiative.

The authors of this article map out arts learning outcomes to the principles of Universal Design for Learning. 


"They build a case for the contribution of the arts to expert learning across the affective, recognition, and strategic neural networks and argue for making affective and reflective learning outcomes more explicit in the arts. Throughout this piece, the authors call for a vision of the arts playing an increasing role in providing engaging learning options in an integrated general curriculum."

TeachThought asked readers to take a survey and many requested resources for Common Core. This is their first post that provides a wide range of resource for English, Math and Science. Each section is split into three sections: Articles, Journals and Videos...so if you are looking for some resources that have been vetted this might be a good place to begin.

5 Tools for Reading Digital Text

5 Tools for Reading Digital Text | Your Friendly Neighborhood Literacy Coach | Scoop.it

"With text no longer relegated exclusively to the pages between the cover of a book or a magazine, the shift from paper to digital texts has brought on a whole new form of literacy. This upheaval in how we read brings with it new opportunities for learning as well as new challenges.

Experts refer to this phenomenon as transliteracy. In a study published in the peer-reviewed journal First Monday, Dr. Sue Thomas and colleagues defined transliteracy as 'the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks'."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 26, 2013 10:03 PM

When we think about reading today and the diverse platforms for reading we should be thinking of transliteracy. As schools gear up for Common Core assessments we need to be more aware of the fact that our students are reading (and writing) across many platform. There is also the knowledge that when reading online students may be clicking on hyperlinks that lead to other resources and begin to get lost.

Learn about some great tools that may be used to help students stay more focused and organized. This post lists five tools, providing explanations for each of them. The tools discussed are:

* Instapaper

* GoodReader

* Skitch

* Diigo

* Readablity

Un insegnante ha il ruolo di un mentore, è un modello, sa aiutare i ragazzi nelle difficoltà e li incoraggia a seguire i loro sogni... A chi di voi è capitata la fortuna di conoscerne almeno uno/a nella vita?

Darleana McHenry's curator insight, September 11, 2013 11:56 PM

I had the opportunity to tell my first grade teacher thank you 5 years ago. She actually had kept my first grade picture all these years. My teachers were great and school was my favorite place and I excelled there. So thanks to all the teachers that I did not get to thank. :-)

Silvia Nascimento's curator insight, August 6, 2015 9:22 PM

There are days when we ask ourselves why we teach...and this infographic shares lots of reasons for why we teach and how we impact our students...so as a visual to share, or one to look at you when you need some building up.
