Free Technology for Teachers: Canva for Education - Lesson Plans Incorporating Visuals Across the Curriculum

Free Technology for Teachers: Canva for Education - Lesson Plans Incorporating Visuals Across the Curriculum | EduNotes | Scoop.it
The new Canva for Education site features eighteen lesson plans written by Vicki Davis, Steven Anderson, Terri Eichholz, and Paul Hamilton. The lesson plans include things like Paul's making historical infographics in which students summarize and visually represent the connections between historical events and their causes. For the elementary school crowd Terri has a lesson called Initial Selfies in which students learn to isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds. One of Steven's lesson plans calls for students to build graphics about percentages. And to take advantage of students' familiarity with Facebook, Vicki has built a lesson plan in which students build historical figure fan pages.

This is an excellent post from a strong teacher. Stephen Taylor seems to have an appropriate balance in his approach across many areas. Whilst at differing stages of our careers, the approach outlined is the closest to mine that I have come across.

Library Staff's curator insight, May 25, 2014 6:24 PM

Content and skills can be balanced in teaching, as long as we don't sail along blissfully ignoring one in favour of the other. We do need to think beyond that which is "googleable" .

10 ways Google Classroom will make learning better | Ditch That Textbook

10 ways Google Classroom will make learning better | Ditch That Textbook | EduNotes | Scoop.it
I became a fan of Google Reader, which collected blog posts and other publications to RSS in one easy-to-access place. Then Google discarded this service — one that had a very loyal user base. Google has a history of doing this to features that don’t meet its needs anymore. If I’m making the switch to Classroom, I’d like to know that Google has committed to it.

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Don't get anymore Apps until you have utilised the Camera App fully

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Don't get anymore Apps until you have utilised the Camera App fully | EduNotes | Scoop.it
"The Camera App is probably the best feature of the iPad for learning, and in combination with the built in Camera Roll App its full functionality is mostly under utilised. Without using any other Apps at all students have the opportunity to document their work by photo, reflect on their work by videoing themselves responding. They can also edit their photos to focus or zoom in on an aspect. They can create folders of photos to organise their work and then create slideshows that they could Airplay in class"

The Difference Between Updating And Rebooting Your Classroom - te@chthought

The Difference Between Updating And Rebooting Your Classroom - te@chthought | EduNotes | Scoop.it
"As they do in other fields full of human beings, money, and systems, discussions about teaching and learning usually tend towards two extremes. Either there sky is falling panic, or the more things change the more they stay the same indifference. There really isn’t any “truth” here worth finding, only perspective: What you believe, and the way those beliefs align with the thinking all around you. You’d be hard-pressed, however, to find a teacher that believed their classroom was as modern, cutting edge, and efficient as it could get–really, honest-to-goodness believed that. Most teachers are, in lieu of the frenetic appearance, smart and self-aware. They’re at the very least educated, certified, and endlessly trained and developed. They constantly collaborate, reflect, and refine what they do as a matter of policy, peer pressure, and more than likely at least one growth plan. On top of that, you can add in everything they do to improve their teaching because they want to—like read this. And these smart, connected, and trained educators are probably well aware of the constant change in education. Assessment, student habits, technology, school and district “non-negotiables,” trends in learning, communities, and the staff around them all change constantly—which implies that their craft needs changing, too. Either updated, or rebooted."

24 Entertaining Short Stories For Middle School - te@chthought

24 Entertaining Short Stories For Middle School - te@chthought | EduNotes | Scoop.it
"Reading in middle school is tricky, and it’s not simply a matter of decoding and fluency. Middle school students are an interesting bunch, with rapid brain development, emerging identities, and a varied assortment of readiness, background knowledge, and maturity in any given classroom. This can make selecting short stories for middle school students a challenge. The following graphic may help. weareteachers.com, a treasure trove of teachers resources, put together the image below to help jumpstart your thinking. It is mostly classic stuff, but there are literally zero missteps here, with every story having literary value, from the suspense of “The Lottery” to the memorable characters of “Flowers for Algernon.”"
