Linda Maher's insight:

A good discussion not only on using Kaizena as a way of leaving comments for students but on the whole approach to teaching students to write using particular genres and getting to be responsible for the whole revision process.

Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 27, 2013 6:09 AM

This scoop it profile by @Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)  includes many useful blogs and articles that aim to teach in the 21st century. This includes learning with the use of technology. What he refers to as the 'iGeneration' includes many useful updates that can be used for both the students and teachers in the classroom. A few i came across that sparked my interest were a description on how to set up a blog with wordpress for teachers, this can be very useful to me as a student now and also in the future. I enjoy D'Amico's profile as he scoops quite interesting topics.

When curriculum resources are limitless due to the access we have to on-line materials, then the question we ask about those materials become more important. Values Education helps us all to ask the right questions! See some innovative whole school projects at:

Resources for Working with Reluctant Readers

Resources for Working with Reluctant Readers | Supporting Reading in Schools | Scoop.it
"Are guys reluctant readers? That question is debatable; the truth is some guys are and some guys aren't, just as some girls are and some girls aren't... ...People will read, when they find something they connect with. Our job as librarians (and teachers and parents) is to help them make those connections. Here are some resources that can help you do that."

Middle school boys who are reluctant readers value reading more after using e-readers: study

Middle school boys who are reluctant readers value reading more after using e-readers: study | Supporting Reading in Schools | Scoop.it
“ Middle school boys rated reading more valuable as an activity after two months of using an e-reader, according to a new study.”
Via Sakis Koukouvis
Linda Maher's insight:
I like the idea that other students are unaware of the types of books that students using e-readers are reading. It gives these students the freedom to select books that interest them and are at their reading level.

Penelope's curator insight, June 19, 2014 8:26 PM

 

I love quotes. From these tiniest little gems, I believe you can glean much about the person and their view of the world.

 

If you're a reader, writer, or both you should enjoy these quotes from well-known authors.
