"The Common Core’s Anchor Standard 6 for writing in grades K–12 requires students to “use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others”. Here are some ideas for meeting this standard (besides the obvious use of technology—word processing).

* Class blog or website

There are links to many resources thoughout this post and in many cases specific suggestions are provided for grade levels. If you are not using online tools with your students this post provides great resources to help you begin the process.

mshudson's curator insight, April 7, 2013 12:04 PM

Very interesting! I use some of the tools highlighted but must expand my application to include consistent student usage.

Lee Hall's curator insight, April 9, 2013 4:20 PM

Ben shared the curriculum that is experiential, learner-focused and based on these 7 MS competencies:

 

>> Self-Assessor: in health, mind, spirituality and organization

>>  Contributor: through empathy and understanding; making a difference to the surrounding world

>> Creator: being an innovator, designer and maker of new things

>> Communicator: with compassion through oral, written, visual, musical, non-verbal and dance.

>> Collaborator: team member, leading and negotiating, sharing

>> Explorer: showing curiosity, taking risks and experimenting

>> Thinker: creative, critical, analytical, broad minded

 

They came up with the 3 Big Ideas last year. For one week three times during the year, there are themes where learners self-direct their learning.
