Read Alouds and Short Text Recorder | Monica Burns - Class Tech Tips | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

"There are some teacher tools that have changed my instruction immensely and this is one of them!

 

QuickVoice allows you to record your voice and I use it for read alouds and test prep throughout the school year.  You can record your own voice reading a short text or picture book and play it back to your students.  I usually use this with my iPhone and then plug it in to speakers to play back for students."

How To Use Pinterest With Bloom's Taxonomy - Edudemic

How To Use Pinterest With Bloom's Taxonomy - Edudemic | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
It's actually quite easy to figure out how to use popular social bookmarking service Pinterest with Bloom's Taxonomy. That is, after you see this guide!

 

We’re big fans of both Pinterest and Bloom’s Taxonomy. So you can imagine our excitement when we saw this handy (and printable! Click here for the PDF!) guide designed to inform you how to use Pinterest with Bloom’s Taxonomy. It showcases a couple dozen (25) ways to integrate Bloom’s with Pinning. From building a resource board to defining vocabulary on a board with captions and images, there’s a lot of work to be done thanks to this graphic.

Amanda Hovious's comment, May 30, 2013 11:05 AM
"...serving in a dual role as school librarian and instructional technologist was found to enable involvement in technology-integration leadership." This is the key, but school librarians need better training in order to do so. The current media specialist curriculum requirements do not adequately address instructional design and technology skills.

Rather interesting evidence of an emerging research field - school libraries! Universities and research centres are providing is with SL focused research as well as SL staff specialised training. Maturity signs for all of us, betting on this since at least 1996... Thanks for sharing, Karen

Joycelyn DeVore's curator insight, February 4, 2015 9:22 PM

So many people are on Pinterest, that it only makes since that teachers and librarians try to use these resources. This article talks about how to use Pinterest to organize information, so that is can easily be found by students, and since it is through a site most teens use, its an engaging tool.
