Let’s see if you sound like many people I’ve talked to about sketchnotes (and the former version of myself): “I’d love to be able to do that. I’d love for my students to be able to do it. But I can’t draw! I’m not an artist.” Sketchnoting (or visual notetaking) is a great skill for […]

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, August 17, 2016 10:22 AM
17 August 2016

One of the many great honors / pleasures of my experience with Google Lit Trips has been to extent to which the Google Lit Trips project has inspired other real world learning experiences. RealWorldMath.org being among the many. 

Today I was pretty amused to find that the Google Lit Trips concept is being suggested as a model for converting Pokémon Go into a real world learning experience. 

I have to admit that my experience with Pokémon Go is little more than noticing that it is a world-wide craze that has been the butt of a lot of lemming jokes. 

Yet, discovering this Discovery Education article reminded me of my life-long attraction to the joys and discoveries resulting from divergent thinking when it comes to lesson planning.

So... I am hoping that anyone picking up on the suggestion of trying to blend Pokémon Go with the Google Lit Trips concept will consider sharing the experience and outcomes with me at: Jerome@GoogleLitTrips.org.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, October 23, 2015 10:11 AM

Interested in ACT's new analytic writing rubric? Since the beginning of ACT's writing assessment, student compositions have been scored holistically using a six-point guide. This year, ACT has adopted an analytic rubric which will be much more helpful as a tool for teachers and students in understanding where the writing succeeds and/or misses the mark.

2017 was another landmark year in digital reading, as our 40,000 library and school partners circulated a quarter-of-a -billion eBooks and audiobooks through their OverDrive-powered collections. The more than 225 million borrowed titles represent a 14% growth in checkouts from 2016, which was also a record-setting year.

Readers from every corner of the world continue to love the anytime, anywhere access of digital books, as a record number of libraries surpassed 1 million checkouts as well, representing multiple countries and continents. Dozens of cities across the globe held popular “Digital Book Clubs” promoting community digital reading through the library, and hundreds of thousands of users took part in our global Big Library Read and Together We Read events.
