Oskar Almazan's curator insight, November 1, 2017 8:13 AM
En marketing, a great image is often a key component of the message. Constant need for pictures can dig deep into your pocket when using stock photography. If you want a particular image, then it makes sense to pay for the stock images as it will be a lot cheaper than to hire a photographer. What to do when you need images all the time, but their marketing lifespan can be measured only in days, maybe hours? Images for Facebook posts, email newsletters, individual slides in presentations that you use only once… Paying 10 or 20 dollars per image for these adds up. So where do you get free images? I have collected a bunch of sites that give you exactly that… free images for commercial use.

27 Ideas For Students That Finish Their Work Early -

27 Ideas For Students That Finish Their Work Early - | Teacher Librarians Rock | Scoop.it
How to respond when students finish their work early is a classic teacher challenge.

Most of it boils down to lesson design–creating learning opportunities where students are naturally funneled toward extending, improving, and sharing their work so that ‘stopping points’ are more of a matter of scheduling than learning itself.

The following infographic via Mia MacMeekin provides some ideas for how to handle early finishers in the classroom. We almost titled this purely for elementary students because of ideas like manipulatives, naps, and music, but any of those shown below can be slightly adapted for almost any student grades K-12.

How can we encourage boys to read for pleasure? Teachers give their views

How can we encourage boys to read for pleasure? Teachers give their views | Teacher Librarians Rock | Scoop.it
Think about it like sport
“Explaining to boys that improving their reading is like sports training or playing an instrument can do the trick: they acknowledge the effort that needs to go into these kinds of activities; knowing the brain is like a muscle that can be trained can often help.

“The advice I give to parents for reading at home is to find factual subjects boys might be into: sport, cars, music, computers, science; then buy a broadsheet newspaper on the day they read their specialist pull-outs. The interest in content will drive the reading which is often lengthy, with sophisticated levels of vocabulary and sentence structure.”

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift | Teacher Librarians Rock | Scoop.it
Adilene Rodriguez admits she has always struggled with academics. Especially in middle school she hated getting up early, found her classes boring and didn’t really see where it was all going. When she started her freshman year at Arroyo High School in San Lorenzo, California, just south of Oakland, she was a shy student who rarely spoke up in class and had little confidence in herself as a scholar.

Rodriguez is now a senior and her approach to school has changed dramatically over her high school career. She attributes her shift to her freshman science teacher, Jim Clark, who taught the class about growth mindset from the very beginning and backed up the discussion with action.

“He would tell me, ‘You need to push yourself, that’s how you’re going to grow. Be confident. You’re not always going to be successful on your first tries, but you can get there,’ ” Rodriguez said

Carol Dweck"s book Mindset is a great resource for teachers who want to learn more about this topic.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 15, 2016 10:29 PM
"She also tries hard to model a growth mindset to her students by being open about her own struggles as a parent and a teacher. “They’re not used to teachers apologizing,” Rodgers said. “But I tell them I’m going to make mistakes all the time. And I think showing that helps them realize they can actually make mistakes.” When teachers and administrators say they want kids to have a growth mindset, the school environment has to back up that rhetoric. At Arroyo, the emphasis on growth mindset came alongside a shift to standards-based grading. Kids can see that mistakes along the way aren’t negatively affecting them and keep working to master the concepts. “When you believe it; they believe,” Rodgers said. “If I didn’t believe this, they wouldn’t buy what I’m selling.”"

How to Rock at Writing Essential Questions

How to Rock at Writing Essential Questions | Teacher Librarians Rock | Scoop.it

The simplest way to define an essential question is to call it an open question. It cannot be answered with a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ or being labelled true or false. If you can Google the answer or respond in a brief manner, it doesn’t inspire intense investigation or creative output. That’s how you know it isn’t an essential question!

Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.
Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 19, 2016 5:10 AM

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.
