Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 2014 8:24 AM

Hello, Year 9! 

Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy. 

As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.

Con tanta información a nuestro alrededor es fundamental que aprendamos a cuestionar nuestros hallazgos y nuestras propias ideas.

57 Learning Technology Tools One Middle School Teacher Depends On

57 Learning Technology Tools One Middle School Teacher Depends On | Technology in middle school | Scoop.it
57 learning technology tools one middle school teacher depends on, such as Kidblog, Dropbox, VoiceThread, Educreations, etc.

 

With all the websites, mobile apps, and desktop programs available to teachers out there, it can be exasperating to know how to use them. Most busy teachers simply ask colleagues in their department or the teacher’s lounge. Or the resident technology integrator, if your school is lucky enough to have one.

But what if you have already tried those avenues? Or don’t have them available? Fortunately, there are a few resources online that you can use. There is Twitter and its various teacher hashtags, social media sites for teachers, or edshelf’s collections.

Below is one such collection. It is curated by Mrs. J. Porritt from W.S. Hawrylak School. Generously included are notes for each of the tools she uses in her classroom. If you are looking for a new tool, or want to know more about an existing tool, check out her useful collection of teaching tools.

The Resources in This Playlist Contain Hundreds of Tips, Insights, and Suggestions for Getting up to Speed and off to a Good Start Teaching With the iPad.

A publisher recently asked me if I knew of a good iPad “Quick Start” Guide for teachers just getting started with using the iPad in the classroom. I didn’t, but had to imagine that I could find resources along these lines on the Web. As I searched, I found many good web pages, and knew right away that this was a great topic for creating a LessonPaths curated Playlist to share them.

Wonderful Visual Featuring The Three Versions of Bloom's Taxonomy ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Wonderful Visual Featuring The Three Versions of Bloom's Taxonomy ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in middle school | Scoop.it

"I have been sharing several visuals on Bloom's Taxonomy over the last couple of years but I  never came across a graphic that captures the essence of the three versions of Bloom's taxonomy as the one below. Actually, Bloom's taxonomy comes only into two versions, the original which was created by a  committee of educators chaired by  Benjamin Bloom  sometime in the 1950s of last century. During the 1990s another group of educators and cognitive psychologists led by Lorin Anderson ( a former student of Bloom) updated the original version to make it convenient with the learning needs of the 21st century."

The digital Bloom's will likely continue to evolve like the original one has over time. That is essential in moving our learning and thinking ahead.

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, April 5, 2014 1:34 PM

Great side by side graphic of Bloom's original, revised, and digital taxonomies.

Handy Visual Featuring 20+ Ways to Stimulate Creativity ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in middle school | Scoop.it

"I just came across this handy graphic on creativity and want you to have a look as well. The visual features a variety of ways and techniques that can inspire your creativity and drive you to act creatively.These ideas seem simple and common sensical but are often overlooked. You can share them with your students and try them with your kids, just remember whatever method you use, you need to be consistent and repeat it everyday. Habituation is a key element in the creative process."

The new learning experiences

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 13, 2014 2:20 AM

If you can do it with paper why use a digital alternative? Because for some of students, it makes the difference between engagement and being switched off.  Of couse finding the activities that you just can't do with paper...that's the real power of a digital solution.

Jennifer Turner's curator insight, February 24, 2014 1:40 PM

Don't be afraid of social media when you can learn how to use it in your classroom.  This reasource is a great find for educators that may want to use social media but just do not know where to incorporate it.

Think Big: How to Jumpstart Tech Use In Low-Income Schools - Mind/Shift | Technology in middle school | Scoop.it
The challenges of rural schools are many of the same (though not all) that low-income public schools face across the country: inadequate access to technology and broadband, tight budgets, and educators who have not been trained in using technology in meaningful ways. But these hurdles did not deter Daisy Dyer Duerr, Prek-12 Principal of St. Paul Public Schools in St. Paul, Arkansas.

AWESOME + a tip from Linda:

" Definite share with teachers for finding primary source documents.  Also, don't forget the Google LIFE magazine images. 

 

"Search tip

Add "source:life" to any Google image search and search only the LIFE photo archive. For example: computer source:life "
