Tips to Get Kids Reading Resource | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
There have always been champions of literacy and promotions to increase reading but while they generate short term gains they’re never long lasting. But if you and I can create a super depository of tips that’s open to all we’ll be in a position where we can make constant improvements to students’ literacy (whoop-whoop!)

Best Tech-Creation Tools

Best Tech-Creation Tools | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
Students love to make and create to demonstrate what they're learning. However, teachers know that the creative process isn't just about having students demonstrate what they already know; it's also about getting students to construct mental models and learn through experience. By making things, students build meaning, work through problems, and acquire new knowledge and skills in context. There's built-in challenge to creation that gets students thinking in new ways while building their confidence. With this in mind, we've compiled this list of terrific tools for tech creation that offer a wide variety of engaging end products kids can create, from stories to animations to music to games.
