Look at this from the POV of when and how you will teach research skills. Students need consistent requirements for excellence and accountability.

Teaching — It’s about Inspiration, Not Information – Tina Seelig – Medium

“Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Theodore Roosevelt

This is an important reminder that teaching is all about building a relationship with your students. In fact, in today’s world, when information is at our fingertips, we don’t need to go to school to learn facts and figures — a quick Google search, a glance at Wikipedia, or a question posed to Siri will usually result in answers to specific questions.

It's Official: 'Digital Citizenship' Classes Are the New Normal in Schools

It's Official: 'Digital Citizenship' Classes Are the New Normal in Schools | library life | Scoop.it
On a fall day in early September, Rachel Murat begins the school year by instructing her newest group of high schoolers to google themselves. As they click away on their Chromebooks, the students begin to realize what a simple search can reveal about them, and the room slowly fills with gasps of shock. Once the students have settled down, Murat tells them to google her name. “They always think they’re going to find dirt, but they never do,” Murat says. “Then I harp on them about not making a permanent post about a temporary emotion.”

When Murat wanted to start a digital citizenship class at Maine-Endwell High School in Broome County, New York, in 2012, she didn’t have much of a road map to work with. Today, a growing number of digital-citizenship curriculum providers are emerging, catering to increasing demand from schools and educators across the country adopting “DigCit” as central to the education they provide.

It is widely accepted that opportunities to work in teams lets students develop better communication, collaboration and organizational skills. Before we started using Scrum, we had not found any surefire method to make projects successful. Now we have a framework that provides more structure and guidance for teachers and students. We are providing the necessary scaffolding so students can learn harmonious teamwork. With this in place, we can embark on classroom projects that let students explore, create and shine.

Using Critical Thinking to prepare students for success

Using Critical Thinking to prepare students for success | library life | Scoop.it

The average Google search takes less than 30 seconds to produce millions of responses, putting gigabytes of information—some true, some not—at users’ fingertips in an instant. And oftentimes, those users are high school students.

“My kids are online a lot,” says Eileen Murphy, the CEO and Founder of ThinkCERCA. “I’ve seen firsthand that the amount of misinformation out there is striking.”

“There are no rules anymore,” Eileen adds.

“Bad information passes as fact,” Eileen says. “Entire communities are built online to validate points of view without reasoning or evidence.”

Eileen founded ThinkCERCA to teach students the critical thinking skills they need to thrive in the 21st century—including overcoming this influx of misinformation.

In what seems like a contradiction in terms, the best strategy for coping with the rapid pace of our lives is not to speed up but to slow down.

Ultimately, the most powerful creative element in the classroom is the teacher. You have the power to inspire students to take creative risks by modeling the process and being open and even vulnerable about your journey. You also have the power to create epic learning experiences that encourage students to take creative risks. So, in 2018, I would encourage you to choose one big creative risk and make it happen.
