Reading level - Search Help | Library Ideas | Scoop.it

Sometimes you may want to limit your search results to a specific reading level. For example, a second language learner may want more basic sites, a middle school teacher looking for educational material for her students may look for intermediate resources, and a scientist searching for the latest findings from the experts may want to limit results to those at advanced reading levels.

Very useful for lower level language students or those teaching them. The split into 3 levels is a bit basic, but can still sav a lot of time.

This method might make it a bit easier when looking for differentiated material  for your classes.  Remember, in Schoology you can deliver individual material to one student or set up groups within your class and deliver to a group as well.  This research technique may save a bit of time.

38 Of The Best Educational Games For iPad - TeachThought

38 Of The Best Educational Games For iPad - TeachThought | Library Ideas | Scoop.it

"School is a time in a students life where they are learning as much about how to be students and operate successfully in a school as they are about how to read, write, and think. But oftentimes, the demand for pure academic instruction and practice can fly in the face for a student’s need–at any age–to play, build, interact, explore, and construct their own learning experience.

 

Issues like these can make mobile technology like tablets a boon to learning, as they can allow individual access to the right app–and the right content, creative opportunity, game, or learning simulation–at the right time. It is the collision of the need for interaction, personalization, creativity, and constant feedback that can make video games powerful tools for learning–and the following 38 games, curated by Sam Gliksman–and excellent place to start."

Hey! Ben from eduCanon. Love all the great reactions!
