3 Steps to Creating Word Nerds

3 Steps to Creating Word Nerds | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it
When I started teaching AP Lang, we did a lot of vocab. I gave a monstrous list of “tone words” and students learned 20 each week. I quizzed them weekly, and then we marched on to 20 more. It was not good. Some kids adored it. It was concrete, and they could pad their grades.…

6 Strategies For Dealing With ‘Difficult’ Students :: Allen Mendler

6 Strategies For Dealing With ‘Difficult’ Students :: Allen Mendler | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it

"While stress caused by common core concerns has dominated the recent education landscape, dealing with difficult students remains the number one source of constant tension for most teachers.

"Continual exposure to students who won’t behave or produce can quickly erode both confidence and well-being.

"...the guidance offered by six “pillars” can help you stay at the top of your game by dramatically influencing even your most challenging students to want to behave and achieve. Each pillar is explained followed by a few hands-on suggestions. Add or substitute other methods within each pillar to reflect your style and preference."

Google revamps Science Journal app with new sensors and iOS support - TechCruch

Google revamps Science Journal app with new sensors and iOS support - TechCruch | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it
Last year, Google released a fun app that let curious kids perform a handful of science experiments by monitoring light, sound and motion using a smartphone. Following some feedback, the app has been updated with a more open-ended approach, allowing kids to simply record and annotate the world around them. (It’s also on iOS now.)

“We heard from teachers that it would be even more useful if the app could take notes and make observations for science experiments,” wrote Amit Deutsch, program manager for Science Journal, in a blog post. “So we’ve redesigned Science Journal as a digital science notebook.”

When Kids Have Structure for Thinking, Better Learning Emerges

When Kids Have Structure for Thinking, Better Learning Emerges | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it

"...a short list of “thinking moves” related to understanding. To test whether these moves were really crucial, researchers asked themselves: could a student say she really understood something if she hadn’t engaged in these activities? They believe the important “thinking moves” that lead to understanding are:

-Naming: being able to identify the parts and pieces of a thing
-Inquiry: questioning should drive the process throughout
-Looking at different perspectives and viewpoints
-Reasoning with evidence
-Making connections to prior knowledge, across subject areas, even into personal lives
-Uncovering complexity
-Capture the heart and make firm conclusions
-Building explanations, interpretations and theories.

The Best Audiobook Apps for All Types of Listeners - MakeUseOf

The Best Audiobook Apps for All Types of Listeners - MakeUseOf | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it
One of the best things about audiobooks is that you can take them with you wherever you go. At your desk, in the kitchen, on the road, on a run — there’s nowhere that you can’t be listening to a work of fiction.

However, the places where you do most of your listening (and which devices you use to listen to audiobooks) can change which audiobook apps you should be using on a daily basis.

We have found six of the best audiobook apps available right now, all of which offer something different. Your job is to work out which audiobook app is right for you.

Getting Started with Design Thinking in the Classroom

Getting Started with Design Thinking in the Classroom | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it
Every day, I ask my kids, “What did you make in school today?” Too often, they can’t give me an answer. But on the days that they do, their eyes light up and they passionately describe their projects. It’s in those moments that I am reminded that making is magic.

I want to see schools transform into bastions of creativity and wonder.

But here’s the thing: this is hard to pull off. We all have curriculum maps and limited resources and standards we have to teach. We don’t always have fancy maker spaces or high-tech gadgetry. Our time is limited and so creativity is often a lofty ideal that rarely becomes a reality.

This is what I love about design thinking. It works within the standards in every subject. It’s a flexible approach that you can use with limited resources. It isn’t something new that you add to your crowded schedule. Instead, it’s an innovative approach to the work you are already doing — a process designed specifically to boost creativity and bring out the maker in every student.
