Quill.org — Interactive Writing and Grammar, Elem thru HS

Quill.org — Interactive Writing and Grammar, Elem thru HS | Education | Scoop.it

"Quill.org provides free online tools to help low-income students become sharp writers. Our mission is to help the 30 million low-income K-12 students in the United States who struggle with writing.

 

"In 2011, a Department of Education study found that 76% of eighth grade students are not proficient at writing, one of the most important skills young people need to improve reading comprehension, advance critical thinking, and produce new knowledge. While poor writers may gain admission into college, they will not have the skills they need to thrive. College-level learning depends on college-level thinking expressed through the written word.

 

"By using Quill, teachers are able to implement research-based expository writing instruction in their classrooms. We want to improve outcomes for every single student who does not have consistent access to the finest writing instruction. By automatically grading the writing as they work, students are able to receive instant feedback and personalized instruction. This tailored experience enables students to learn faster, and it saves teachers hundreds of hours spent on grading.

 

"Quill currently provides four writing tools that enable students to build writing, grammar, and proofreading skills, and we will continually launch new tools that advance student writing and thinking. Through our tools, students gain the ability to express, with clarity and precision, complicated thoughts in writing. Although some of the steps might seem simple, each activity helps teachers progressively build the skills students need to read deeply and think critically about the world around them."

Jim Lerman's insight:

Quill's programs have been well-received by many educators and schools. Well worth a look.

"As a journalism student who loved to code, I found my home at Northwestern University’s Knight Lab. Knight Lab brings together a community of folks invested in using technology to enhance storytelling, and over the past few years has produced a number of simple and open-source tools to aid reporters in crafting digital stories.

"...the tools, which give any user the ability to design a timeline, compare two images, or build a geographic-based story, are free, easy-to-use, fast, and adaptable for the classroom.

I think we have to take care with what students are asked to learn. Mastery, competency, and clarity of what in a world where we declare that the jobs students will hold when they graduate do not even exist. It is about asking questions that do not have pre-supposed answers. John Dewey's work may be more important today than ever.

Ella Barresi's curator insight, May 27, 2017 7:17 PM
This info graphic lists many great resources that could influence ICT use in a classroom. Many of these we have explored through ICT Design, however many are new resources. This could be a great starting block for an ICT and student centered unit plan. 

EDIT:
Upon reading this article, I agreed that these skills are necessary for 21st century teachers. I have re-read this article however, and now I see that these skills are just as important for 21st century students. Imagine sending students out into the workforce after school, with all of these skills. This Infographic has provided me with the inspiration for creating a learning sequence within a unit.

Within the drama classroom there is room for most of these skills. Within my unit plan, students have to prepare a performance but in addition to that, they have to market their performance. This will require posters, a promotion video, creating a website for the performance. Working collaboratively to decide what needs to be done, students then work independently on their task (decided within the group). This will give students the opportunity to excel in skills from outside of the drama classroom. 
Jeff At CQU's curator insight, June 17, 2017 10:06 AM

This resource is excellent.  Highly organised, focused and very easy to read.  I think this would be a wonderful resource printed on a poster and displayed in the classroom.

 

Website addresses are given under nine headings that fit so well with the Australian Curriculum General Standards, the pedagogy I have chosen in my pedagogy map, and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers..

 

Examples of such links are as follows:

 

1. Category on Chart: Create infographics and posters (4 websites listed)

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Curriculum General Standards

    - Literacy - communicate concepts, ideas and detailed proposals

      LINKS TO: 

(b) High end pedagogy

   - Provide students opportunities to communicate ideas and detailed proposals through various self-selected ICT technologies

      LINKS TO: 

(c) Links to Pedagogy

   - Student direction: Students self-select methods to communicate their proposals, reports, drawings and specifications using media channels appropriate to the intended audience. To an extent directing, setting the pace and determining outcomes of learning (problem based learning).

      LINKS TO: 

(d) ICT Connections

   - Students should understand and develop the ability to utilise different presentation software – such as Prezzi and PowerPoint.

 

2. Category on Chart: Create PLNs, connect, discover new content and grow professionally (4 websites listed)

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

6.2 Engage in professional learning and improve practice

 

3. Category on Chart: Create, organize adn share digital resources

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

6.3 Engage with colleagues and improve practice

__________________________________________________________

 

In relation to SAMR, this allows for transformation learning in the following ways:

 

1. Modification: many tasks in the classroom can be re-designed with this poster being used to locate safe and appropriate resources on the internet.

 

An example is using a a resource under "Create Digital Portfolios" such as Weebly.com in place of a portfolio in book form.

 

2. Redefinition: new tasks, previously inconceivable are possible, such as displaying a student's portfolio on a mobile device as opposed to book form.

__________________________________________________________

 

 In summary, this is brilliantly designed and I see it as a highly valuable resource for my teaching.
