How Games Lead Kids to the Good Stuff: Understanding Context

How Games Lead Kids to the Good Stuff: Understanding Context | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it
With game-based learning students learn how to solve the problems in context. They understand how the equations they are solving fit into the world. The question, “Why do I need to know this?” is rendered obsolete. It is more than just subject matter, more than just content. There’s context. Students understand how integer partitions work within a system.

A Comprehensive List of Educational Web Resources for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Comprehensive List of Educational Web Resources for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it

The web is teeming with all kinds of content and as a teacher with a busy time schedule you probably find it hard to go online and start sifting through this tsunami of information to find relevant digital resources to use with your students.  It is both energy and time consuming task and this is why I deemed it necessary to compile as much comprehensive a list as possible to make it handy for teachers to access web resources related to the content area they teach. I have gone through my archive and extracted all the websites I have reviewed in the past and featured them here under different categories.

How to Motivate University Students | Inside Higher Ed

What is motivation? On one hand we mean motive, or the reason for doing something; on the other we mean the energy and enthusiasm a person invests in the thing that she or he is doing. When teachers are talking about motivating students, it seems to me that the two meanings are conflated. This confusion may come from the part of the students, who occasionally would like their teachers to provide them with reasons and motives pertaining to their life as a whole...

Storybird - Collaborative storytelling

Storybird - Collaborative storytelling | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it

One of the nicest online applications devoted to storytelling. Use art from artists who give away their work for people to create delicate storybooks that can be published, viewed and shared online. Probably the catchiest website for storytelling in primary education. ESL students can create nice stories and choose the most suitable art. Truly motivating! Teachers can create groups and give assignments and topics for stories.

Are Charter Schools Really Better At Keeping Kids From Dropping Out? - Washington Post

Are Charter Schools Really Better At Keeping Kids From Dropping Out? - Washington Post | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it

"The conventional wisdom is that urban charter schools do a much better job than public schools at getting their students to graduate from high school and go to college.

 

But audited figures from the District of Columbia’s Office of the State Superintendent of Education over the past ten years show that despite all the advantages and extra corporate funding of charter schools, the attrition rates from both types of schools is essentially the same, and is very high.

 

The graphs and tables below show that both public and charter schools in Washington D.C. have a serious attrition problem, in that large proportions of the students enrolled and counted in October of their 9th grade have somehow vanished by the time that the cohort of 12th graders is officially counted in October."...
