Educational Apps Checklists Every Teacher Should Have

Educational Apps Checklists Every Teacher Should Have | PD for Teachers | Scoop.it

These checklists help practitioners select the right educational apps to use with their learners.

 

This post highlights checklists, created by Tony Vincent, to help practitioners make sound educational choices when selecting apps to use with learners in their learning environments.

 

Well worth checking these checklists and possibly printing them.

Diane Spann's insight:

As we as teachers are tasked  with developing 21st century learners, we need to deploy 21st century technology strategies that are based on sound pedagogy. Tools that facilitate an evaluation of educational apps are vital in the process of selecting the appropriate tools for various educational environments and diversified student populations. This rubric is such a tool.

Story Structure Diagrams « Ingrid's Notes

Story Structure Diagrams « Ingrid's Notes | PD for Teachers | Scoop.it
Yes, it's true, I've had story structure on the brain. I've also recently joined pinterest (of which I immediately became addicted). But there's a happy side effect of these two obsessions… this post!

 

Holy Cow! Here's a blog post with 10 different diagrams on story structure! I doubt you will ever need another story structure diagram after looking at these.

 

Some are similar. Some have their own unique twist. And then there's the 17 stages of Joseph Campbell's Monomyth to explore. Yikes -- that's a big one!

 

Of course, the simplest story structure is: problem -- resolution. Add to that a set-up/context in the beginning and a meaningful close at the end, and you are done.

 

Hah -- would that storytelling could be so simple! As every professional storyteller will tell you, a powerful story is all in the delivery. Still, if you don't follow the structures in these diagrams, you will simply end up with a plot-based description: "I went to the store. I bought some bread. I came home." No story there! I doubt you would pay money for that one.

 

Soooo -- check out these diagrams, use them to craft your stories, and you are half-way there. Then go work on your delivery :)

TAKE A LOOK AT ALL THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF STORY STRUCTURE DIAGRAMS. WHICH LOOKS MOST LIKE THE ONE WE HAVE DONE IN CLASS?

Nathan Schultz's curator insight, November 25, 2015 6:10 PM

A more humerous link, this article uses various funny graphics to explain the basics of plot, character arcs, four act structures, ect.  Interesting because it using a newer medium to better explain an old medium.

10 (More) Amazing Videos About the Creative Process -- The Fuel Of Storytelling

10 (More) Amazing Videos About the Creative Process -- The Fuel Of Storytelling | PD for Teachers | Scoop.it
We hand-pick the web's best videos about the creative process from some of the world's most talented creative minds.

 

I stumbled upon this the other day and couldn't wait to share it with you. And I thought Friday would be a great day so you can have a totally inspiring weekend!

 

I've watched all of these videos and they are awesome. And each one is different. Each has its own unique message/messages about creativity, art, life, and work. Fabulous!

 

These are keepers and I've added them to my 'favorites' on YouTube so I can go back and dip into them whenever I need a lift.

 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and take away lots of good stuff to incorporate into daily living!
