Mind Mapping Software - Create Mind Maps online - 1 views

  •  
    collaborative mindmap site - very cool. Limited tools in free version, and only allowed a few maps. But right now you can get a edupersonal year for $30 which I think is well worth it. It is a very cool tool

Rubrics as Effective Learning and Assessment Tools Laura Baker - 1 views

  • measurable criteria that can be counted or marked as present or not present in the work that is being evaluated. 
  • This allows the rubric to be used as an ongoing dialog between the teacher and student and allows the student to know when each criterion has been met and then make improvements as needed. (Lockett, 2001)
  • Although allowing student involvement in creating rubrics is time consuming, by allowing students a voice in creating their own rubric, the students have more ownership over their own learning and evaluation.
  • ...9 more annotations...
  • will be easier for the students to understand due to the fact that the students are the ones supplying the language for the criteria
  • when there is a wide range of variation between quality work and work that is not yet proficient.
  • writing assignments, use of scientific inquiry, problem solving, performance based learning, and presentations
  • that teachers scoring the same set of papers using the same rubric have a correlation value beyond 0.80
  • Students should be given rubrics at the beginning of an assignment because rubrics not only are valuable to teachers because they help in more consistent grading, but are helpful to students as well. 
  • Holistic rubrics are quicker to use than analytical rubrics because holistic rubrics don’t break down the task.
  • better diagnostic information and provide students more feedback about how to make his or her work better
  • Analytical rubrics, on the other hand, break down the final project into parts
  • empowered to take more responsibility for their own learning.

Integrating Web 2.0 Tools into the Classroom: Changing the Culture of Learning | CCT - 0 views

  • This report presents findings from a two-year investigation of the ways in which Web 2.0 tools and social networking technologies are being used to support teaching and learning in classrooms across the United States.
  • Currently, there is much discussion and excitement about Web 2.0 in education, but we still know very little about how these tools actually work in the classroom. Therefore, the goal of this research was simply to interview and observe educators and students who are experimenting with these tools in the classroom to see what uses are emerging and to explore the learning affordances of blogs, wikis, and other Web 2.0 tools.
  • between school/home, public/private or youth/adult culture, it presents an emerging challenge. Web 2.0 technologies are fundamentally reshaping and realigning many aspects of the communication loop: the people with whom teachers, students, and parents communicate; how they communicate; what they communicate about; and where and when they communicate. These ongoing processes bring to the fore exciting opportunities and novel challenges for educators. As schools use these technologies to build communities, the old boundaries between public and private, in school and out of school, and youth culture and adult culture are melting away and being redrawn.

      Yet another great source of unbranded, generic, and high quality "how to" videos that I can mine for my course.

      This is great Anne. Where did you find these resources Merlot or one of the others? How will you incorporate this video into your online course?
    • Anne Deutsch
       
      Hi Diana - LION is a bit like Merlot for librarians but more limited in scope as it's only videos. The quality is high and videos don't have any branding so that they can be utilized by any library.

Son of Citation Machine - 0 views

  • Citation machine helps students and professional researchers to properly credit the information that they use. Its primary goal is to make it so easy for student researchers to cite their information sources, that there is virtually no reason not to -- because... SOMEDAY THE INFORMATION THAT SOMEONE ELSE WANTS TO USE... WILL BE YOURS!

    I LOVE Son of Citation Machine!
