Another great source of copyright free images for students and staff alike. That said everyone should learn to use http://www.google.com/advanced_image_search and http://www.google.com/advanced_search and filter results on usage rights.

QR codes prove a picture really does paint a 1000 words! :-) They also  empower student voice.

Infographics can be very powerful multimodal texts (symbols, shapes, and images) and relevant character-based data (numbers, words, and brief sentences).

An interesting collection of apps. Some that are worth a download. That said the choices lead me to believe that the author has a narrow view of what constitutes creativity. The team from 21st Century Fluencies expand the concept further by saying." Creativity Fluency is the process by which artistic proficiency adds meaning through design, art and storytelling. It is about using innovative design to add value to the function of a product though the form.'

This is much closer to a definition that I am comfortable with as creativity is in maths and Sciences as it is the arts. For me creativity is the application of an innovative design that adds meaning and value. What do you think?

Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift

Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift | 21st century learning | Scoop.it
Three experts shared tech tips and tools during “Flipped School Libraries,” a rapid-fire, dynamic session during The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries (#TDS13) webcast.

 

 

Through the use of innovative technologies and online resources, school libraries can now be available tostudents wherever—and whenever—they need them. “Flipped” or blended learning offers students thepower of personalized instruction, through a mix of virtual and face-to-face interactions, at a student’s own pace. Embracing this concept is a must for student engagement and the future of the profession, say school librarians Joyce Valenza, Brenda Boyer, and Michelle Luhtala.

The creative process is not just iterative; it’s also recursive. It plays out “in the large” and “in the small”

This is a great framework of instructional strategy ideas. Whilst the poster is handy the extra detail on the website shows the depth of thinking behind it. As they say you can never have enough strategy ideas in your teaching toolbox!

"They have clarified the difference between projects and project-based learning before. Projects are about the product, while project-based learning is about the process.

Yenoch Ng's curator insight, February 13, 2014 1:27 PM

This article provides helpful guidelines that describe how projects are different from project-based learning, since it is easy for me to confuse the two. It helped me realized that projects are not based on the real world tasks, but students dive into real world tasks and issues. Additionally, these guidelines will help me form project-based learning ideas for my future students.

Stacey Jackowski's curator insight, February 19, 2014 7:57 PM

Making a poster is not project based learning.  Choosing an engaging and thought provoking topic, relating it to the real world, using creativity.........now that sounds more like it.  I remember every year in elementary school picking a topic of interest and completing a science fair project.  I also remember the engaging process of completing the project, displaying and explaining my project to my peers and teacher, and even winning a couple ribbons in the science fair.  While this is not exactly what Project Based Learning is, it is similar and I have fond memories of learning that way.  I am excited to learn more about what exactly Project Learning is and how to design and implement projects with my future students.
