Crowdsourcing Knowledge with Students

Crowdsourcing Knowledge with Students | my articles | Scoop.it

I have been playing with a very simple brainstorming and voting website called tricider. The great thing about tricider is that it is incredibly quick and simple to use, and yet it enables users to collect information and opinions from all over the web in a very easily digestible and powerful way.

This is an older blog post but the tool I review in it is still one that I constantly use both in online and face to face courses as well as conference presentations. I've included some suggestions for how to use it with students.

It is a nice tool - I have also written a post on it here: http://www.edidaktik.dk/en/tricider-i-undervisningen.html

Another good proposal from Nik. Easy survey tool. Ideal for brainstorming and proposing solutions and giving ideas and opinions.

Evernote - for organizing teachers & students | Powerful Learning Practice

Evernote - for organizing teachers & students | Powerful Learning Practice | my articles | Scoop.it

by Jennifer Carey

 

"If you are not familiar with Evernote, now is the time. Evernote is a free web tool and application that helps you to organize your notes, emails, images, and, well…. everything. It’s hard to describe, but this 50-second video highlights some of the key features and abilities.

 

'Evernote can be a great application for teachers, both to keep yourself coordinated and to facilitate student learning. I want to highlight a few ways that I have employed Evernote not only to make my life a little easier as a teacher, but to help my students and my classroom stay more focused and organized.

 

'First, if you need to familiarize yourself with a quick tutorial, try out the “Getting Started Guide For Teachers.” This will help you with the basics of setting up an account, creating notes, and syncing across platforms. Trust me, it’s very easy and you’ll be up and running in just a few minutes. If you are already a more advanced user, then make sure that you set aside some time to browse their blog and YouTube channel for more advanced tips and tricks!"

Great share!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anne Fox's comment, June 20, 2013 3:26 AM
The price is good compared to other options such as Inkling
Christin Lopez's curator insight, October 23, 2014 7:15 AM

This site provides a way to have an online textbook that you can share with students. Even in the free edition, there are upgrade charges for features and more storage, you can create and join classes. 

 

It looks like this has the potential to be a great resource, but I found trouble right away while searching for a couple topics that I currently teach. There are not textbooks that have tags that help me find what I was looking for. This made me question if the information is on the site and not tagged, or is it too new that others have not uploaded information. I thought that the software creators would have obtained copyright privileges for a number of topics to start the site out. They would have been seed ideas to get the ball rolling. For you to upload PDFs, you need to have the copyright permissions. So while the potential is there for individualizing, it is not a quick jump right into it.

A Collaborative English Grammar

A Collaborative English Grammar | my articles | Scoop.it

I have to admit that I'm not a great fan of grammar, but this is a site that I do really like. It's called English Language and Usage and it is like a Q & A of English grammar. The site has a huge collection of questions that people have sent in about various aspects of English grammar idioms and general usage and anyone who is registered can the try to answer the questions.

A good site for students who like to learn on their own and share thoughts and doubts with the learners' community

Susan's curator insight, April 26, 2013 4:54 AM

Great site whenever you have those doubts about English grammar.  Even native speakers get it wrong at times!

Developing Your Digital Study Skills

Developing Your Digital Study Skills | my articles | Scoop.it

Making the move from our safe and trusted traditional literacy habits to newer digital skills can be quite a challenge, but as teachers I think we are really unlikely to be able to use technology and help our students use technology really effectively unless we are prepared to face this challenge. Technology needs to be more than part of the way we teach but it also has to be part of the way we ourselves continue to learn and part of our everyday professional practice.

Randy Rebman's curator insight, December 13, 2012 1:54 AM

Nik Peachey shows how a social bookmarking tool can be used in ESL/EFL instructional activites. There are some interesting ideas here on how the highlighting and commenting features can be used to stimulate students' learning process using this technology.
