This Canadian project provides useful ideas for developing historical literacy and historical understanding. Similar concepts such as evidence, significance and historical perspectives are embedded in the Australian Curriculum:History. These historical concepts are articulated in the Shape Paper :history

I choose this resource becuase it makes the intial connection that learners are changing and therefore so does the way we need to motivate them.

Heather Harriso's curator insight, October 23, 2015 10:26 PM

A great article that explains and gives further insight on engagement best practices for busy e-learners.  Many adult learners are working full time jobs and balancing families along with college.  Overwhelmed with work, work, work, this article focuses on small snippets to reach students. This is extremely helpful in higher ed and career colleges. 

Jennifer Colin's curator insight, October 24, 2015 1:53 PM

Of any title that has attracted me to an article, this has got to be the winner.  Today's learners ARE distracted, impatient, overwhelmed, and unmotivated, and teachers are often at a loss as to what they can do about it.  I was disappointed to discover, upon reading further, that the article is catered specifically toward eLearning. However, some of the information can still be applied to the traditional classroom.  Tips such as keeping lessons as brief and to the point as possible, using visuals to help with recall, and making lessons interactive to grab and keep the learners' attention, can be helpful reminders to teachers.  In a society that is increasingly adopting an "I need it right NOW" mentality, it is becoming more difficult to keep learners engaged.  But as administrators we need to be all the more diligent about helping teachers find ways to do so.

Seeing Is Believing: Visual vs. Linear Content

Seeing Is Believing: Visual vs. Linear Content | West Australian Curriculum for All Saints | Scoop.it

"In order for our learners to see how designing information changes how it is viewed, the students this year placed their visual infographics side-by-side with their linear notes to see the transformation. It was the “ah ha” moment, when they could examine how the delivery of content mattered and how the deliberate choices in font hierarchy, color selection, and placement changed the way others perceived the ideas."

Visual and linear learning design should come together to create a learning tool. Infographics are an example of this.

This is would be a nice craft to help younger students understand the concept of scale.  This adapts some of the ideas from the classic picture book "Me on the Map" by Joan Sweeney.  


Tags: scale, K12, location.

Hoolee Nan's curator insight, March 30, 2014 5:17 PM

A great way for children to explore countries, areas, positions on maps and get a grasp of their surroundings! Also a fun and interactive idea for the classroom.

Teaching Ethics in the Age of Technology

Teaching Ethics in the Age of Technology | West Australian Curriculum for All Saints | Scoop.it
Ethical decision-making should be included as a 21st century skill (overused term but don't know of an alternative).  Some would profess that ethical decision-making has always been a needed skill....

 

Society is a dynamic system. It must, by nature, evolve in order to survive. As we develop the new definitions of appropriate behavior in the online environment it is imperative that many members of society be engaged in this ongoing dialogue.

 

An informed community and active discussion of ethical issues will enable society to determine civil and just manners to deal with the nuances of technological advancement (Rezmierski, 1992).

 

By opening this dialogue within the K-12 environment, teachers will be able to prepare students to understand the proper use of technology and explore the issues that will continue to unfold (Using Moral Development Theory to Teach K-12 Cyber Ethics).

A Visual History - Graphic Novels In The Humanities | West Australian Curriculum for All Saints | Scoop.it
"Most English and social studies teachers no longer view graphic novels as simply "long comic books." The educational benefits of blending illustrations with narratives have been well established. But rarely do books come along that masterfully capture the dynamic, eye-popping power of art and history."
