8 Essential Google Scholar Tips for Teachers

8 Essential Google Scholar Tips for Teachers | Library Fun | Scoop.it
Google Scholar crawls the worldwide web for scholarly articles and research so that you don’t have to.

Scholarly Googlebots relentlessly scour the Internet for academic and peer-reviewed resources that fit your topic search and leave you with more time for analysis, writing your thesis and sharing the results with your classes and peers.

I like that number one talks about using keywords in Google scholar. Students love to use questions and if we can support and teach them the importance of keywords they will be using better quality resources. 
 
Reginald Smith's curator insight, April 29, 8:17 AM
Google Scholar is a better resource than just having students Google their topics. We should really help students get in the habit of finding information from sources like this or other paid databases. (Infobase, BadgerLink, Discovery Education)

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 6, 2017 2:23 PM
The objective is that good teachers create an environment where each student's learning can emerge. I don't think that means they don't teach. Gert Biesta uses John Dewey in his writing argues that teaching is relational. Having a strong grasp of content, being able to deliver it, caring for one's students, etc. each go into creating the environment where learning can emerge.

Improving teacher's efficiency 
Margaret Annen's curator insight, October 22, 2017 5:03 PM
"Great Teachers Don't Teach" really sums it up with the idea that real teaching doesn't take place until the student does on their own.  This article relates to my project because I believe one way teachers can learn how to let go is for them to be in the same situation as they need to let their students be and that is be left to do.  The only issue perhaps is educators may go through and experience doing, but giving up the control is hard because day in and day out you have been doing the doing. I believe learning how to let go must be accomplished by learning how to let go.  Educators must plan a lesson and say include one or two steps of letting go.  Then they must build on it, so that day after day they themselves feel comfortable with letting go.  Managing a classroom of students who must do specific things on their own looks and feels different because the students are engaged to the point that they do not want to be interrupted rather they are feverishly and committed to learning.

Out of this article, I have used about 5 of the Bookmarking tools and from experience I find them to be of great interest in asking myself, in what sort of form do I wish to express my ideas and who is my audience?  It is important to ask these questions whenever you are creating anything for both inside and outside of the classroom.  With reference to my project, obviously DE and AP Spanish instructors will have to expose themselves to this technology and then create their pieces.  In doing this, they will ask themselves, what is best for my student?, and which medium will allow them to internalize and connect to the information?

A Simple Trick for Getting Students to Ask Questions in Class

A Simple Trick for Getting Students to Ask Questions in Class | Library Fun | Scoop.it
Your students have questions, but they rarely ask them—especially at the beginning of the semester. They feel awkward or embarrassed, or maybe it’s just inertia. Whatever the cause, the vast majority of student questions go unasked. For teachers, this is wildly frustrating because we can’t answer the questions they don’t ask (though some questions can be anticipated). In many cases, the unasked questions represent anxieties and uncertainties that negatively affect students’ performance in class and inhibits their learning. This is a particular problem in the sophomore composition class I teach. It has a reputation as a difficult class, so many students arrive intimidated and nervous.

Students often feel unsure about asking a question. This is more the case early in the school year as they learn the lay of the land. Using index cards to provide some sense of safety and anonymity can be helpful.
