Competencias digitales docentes: ¿opción o necesidad?

Competencias digitales docentes: ¿opción o necesidad? | Limited English Proficiency | Scoop.it
La competencia digital docente ya no es una opción para profesores "modernos", es una exigencia de los cambios y necesidades del aprendizaje en una sociedad como la actual. Y lo será más en el futuro inmediato. Como suelo decir, "la escuela no puede seguir siendo analógica en una sociedad digital".

Digital Storytelling is the process of telling a story through digital means. Also, it happens to be one the easiest ways to integrate technology into the classroom. Educators can use digital storytelling with almost any subject and can even "flip" their classroom by using mobile apps. Below is my comprehensive list of sites/apps that can be used for digital storytelling.

A Brief Guide to Creating Learning Outcomes | Presence

A Brief Guide to Creating Learning Outcomes | Presence | Limited English Proficiency | Scoop.it
Whatever you call them – learning goals, learning objectives, outcome statements, learning outcomes (my go-to) – we should be able to indicate the knowledge or skills we intend students to gain.

The good news is there are general elements to include in naming what students will know, think, or do as a result of engaging with us.

Many academics won't admit just how confounding writing learning outcome statements can be. This guide is one path to understanding for those scratching their heads on this evergreen issue. 

Tina Jameson's curator insight, August 23, 7:58 PM
Even though this is not specifically aimed at schools, the simplicity of the advice and the 'formula' for breaking down your 'learning outcomes' could be useful to teaching staff.

Note-taking: A Research Roundup :: Jennifer Gozalez

Note-taking: A Research Roundup :: Jennifer Gozalez | Limited English Proficiency | Scoop.it

"Every day, in classrooms all over the world, students are taking notes. I have my own half-baked ideas about what makes one approach better than another, and I’m sure you do too. But if we’re going to call ourselves professionals, we need to know what the research says, yes?

"So I’ve combed through about three decades’ worth of research, and I’m going to tell you what it says about best practices in note-taking. Although this is not an exhaustive summary, it hits on some of the most frequently debated questions on the subject.

"This information is going to be useful for any subject area—I found some really good stuff that would be especially useful for STEM teachers or anyone who does heavy work with calculations, diagrams, and other technical illustrations. Of course, there’s plenty here for teachers of social studies, English, and the humanities as well, so everyone sit tight because you’ll probably come away with something you can apply to your classroom."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

An exceptional summary of key research on the topic. Succinct practical, and with numerous links, this post is a must-read for every educator starting in about grade 4 up through graduate school and adult ed.

Highly recommended reading - and if you don't feel like reading, listen to the linked podcast version.  Not only does this article stress the value of note taking to learning and understanding, it provides several well outlined note taking strategies to try.

Talking about an image or theme can be quite demanding, especially if the students are having to improvise what they say, so don’t set your expectations too high the first few times they have to do it, especially if your students are lower level learners, and be sure to offer lots of encouragement.
