10 Simple Tips For Better Teaching With Tablets - Teachers With Apps | ESL | Scoop.it

"Teachers can’t escape the growing trend of technology in the classroom.  It’s more than just hype.  More schools are buying tablets for use in the classroom, with Apple’s tablet sales to the education sector doubling last year.

 

As a mobile software company whose product is used extensively in education, we dream big about the future of technology in the classroom.  We have worked with numerous great teachers who have successfully leveraged tablets to improve the learning experience for students.

 

Are you tempted to join the trend?  Here are ten tips for introducing tablets into your classroom."

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people | ESL | Scoop.it

A new study lends credence to what you’ve probably always suspected: social media is having a pretty negative effect on teenagers — Instagram and Snapchat being the worst culprits. The study, published today and called “Status of Mind,” was conducted by researchers for the Royal Society for Public Health in the UK. The researchers surveyed 1,479 British youths ages 14-24, asking them how they felt the different social media networks effected their mental health. They took in several factors such as body image, sleep deprivation, bullying, and self-identity.

 

The results suggest the two worst social media networks for kids are Instagram and Snapchat, as they had terrible scores for body image, bullying, and anxiety. Twitter and Facebook weren’t much better, though. YouTube was the only one that apparently inspired more positive feelings than negative ones.

Good Hot Dogs by Sandra Cisneros

Poetry and the senses.


Via Josh

Josh's curator insight, January 25, 2013 12:39 PM

CAPTURE THE MOMENT FREEVERSE: If poets decide to ignore meter, they’ll write in
the loose groupings of words and phrases known as free verse. Just as there is no regular beat in
conversation, there’s no regular beat in free verse. Free verse is simply poetry written to sound
like regular conversation. Read the example below about a very unpoetic subject “Good Hot
Dogs,” and then use your learning log entry from earlier to write a similar poem that mimics
Cisneros’ poem.
Good Hot Dogs for Kiki
Fifty cents apiece
To eat our lunch
We’d run
Straight from school
Instead of home
Two blocks
Then the store
That smelled like steam
You ordered
Because you had the
money
Two hot dogs and two
pops for here
Everything on the hot dogs
Except pickle lily
Dash those hot dogs
Into buns and splash on
All that good stuff
Yellow mustard and onions
And french fries piled on
top all
Rolled up in a piece of wax
Paper for us to hold hot
In our hands
Quarters on the counter
Sit down
Good hot dogs
We’d eat
Fast till there was nothing
left
But salt and poppy seeds
even
The little burnt tips
Of french fries
We’d eat
You humming
And me swinging my legs
—Sandra Cisneros
Teacher Example of a Capture the Moment Free
Verse Mimic of Cisneros’ “Good Hot Dogs”
Good River Camping for Judy
Early morning
On the Manatee River
We’d slide the boat
Into the brackish water
At the end
Of Fort Hammer Road
The engine rumbles to life
Smelling like gasoline
I perch on the bow
The wind whips my hair
Slapping my face
I breathe in
The sweet grass smells
Of nearby fields
We stare at the brown waters
The color of mud
As smooth as a mirror
Reflecting the oak trees
Lining the banks
Good river camping
I jump on the sandy bank
Throw the anchor line
Around a tree
The whole weekend
Stretched out
Like a promise
We’d camp under a canopy of stars
You roasting marshmallows
And me staring at the night sky.
-Janet Huffine
