Teaching Kids Skills For Deep Reading on Digital Devices | MindShift | KQED News - 2 views

  •  
    There's no doubt that the experience of reading online is different than reading in print, but does it affect comprehension? While several studies have found student comprehension and retention are lower on digital devices, could it be that students just need to learn the right tools to enhance their digital reading? Maria Konnikova explores the research and theories behind reading in her New Yorker column.

The PDF embedded below provides more detail on the search strategies that I frequently share with teachers and students."

Educator Resources | Agency by Design - 0 views

  • A key goal of maker-centered education is to help young people and adults feel empowered to build and shape their worlds. Acquiring this sense of maker empowerment is strongly supported by learning to notice and engage with the designed dimension of one’s physical and conceptual environment—in other words, by having a sensitivity to design. This sensitivity develops when young people and adults have opportunities to: look closely and reflect on the design of objects and systems, explore the complexity of design, and understand themselves as designers of their worlds.

R U going 2 class? Strategies and Tools for Engaging the Texting Generation - Emerging ... - 0 views

  •  
    "In the U.S., and increasingly abroad, students of high school and college age require a smart phone as a standard part of their lifestyles. In fact, the pervasiveness of these devices can be a real distraction for teachers, who often have to ban the use of them in classrooms.

    Of course, it is also possible to embrace these ubiquitous gadgets, and put students to work on them!

    There are many types of assignments and tools that can be used to engage students using their beloved devices. Here we examine many tools and techniques that can engage students using smartphones. Many of these can also be completed on a tablet or computer as well, to help provide for students who do not have the luxury of a personal cell phone."

8 Strategies To Help Students Ask Great Questions - 2 views

  •  
    "A good question can open minds, shift paradigms, and force the uncomfortable but transformational cognitive dissonance that can help create thinkers. In education, we tend to value a student's ability to answer our questions. But what might be more important is their ability to ask their own great questions-and more critically, their willingness to do so.

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn | MindShift - 2 views

  •  
    "Everyone has a pet theory on how to improve public education: better professional development for teachers, more money, better curriculum, testing for accountability, teacher incentives, technology, streamlined bureaucracy. Policymakers have been trying these solutions for years with mixed results. But those who study the brain have their own ideas for improving how kids learn: focus on teaching kids how to learn."

40 Viewing Comprehension Strategies - 2 views

  •  
    "You can't watch a video like you read a book; the modalities couldn't be much different.

    On the surface level a video uses light, color, sound, and moving images, with the potential for adding text and shape and color and light filters as overlays to communicate ideas, while the most basic text structures use alphanumeric symbols, paragraph and sentence structure, and an assortment of text features (e.g., white space, headings and subheadings, fonts, etc.) to convey their message.

    There is much, much more to it than this. Videos are meant to be consumed in short bursts, while literature, for example, is meant to be "sat with." Videos are (often manic) sprints, while texts are (often meandering) walks. Because of this very different tone and purpose as a matter of design, it's unfair to criticize videos as "less rigorous" than texts, just as it would be misleading to say that video is universally "more engaging" than text (something I may or may not have said in the past). It's more complex than that."

Free Technology for Teachers: Frequently Overlooked Google Search Tools and Strategies - 3 views

  •  
    "Reading through the solution to Dr. Russell's search challenge, which is a very advanced one that I wouldn't expect most high school students to employ, got me thinking about a search strategy and tools that I haven't employed before. That prompted me into thinking about creating a list of accessible search tools and strategies that middle school and high school students often overlook. Here's my short list of tools and strategies that are often overlooked."

Strategies for Encouraging Cooperative Learning - Poster - 4 views

  •  
    "Cooperative learning is as much a skill for students to develop as it is a reflection on how we work and interact in any career or group situation. With an endless number of different techniques and strategies, try using some of the below examples to group and encourage cooperation with your students. Mix and match techniques, take from one, add to another and venture forward to invent and create your own.

    Each of these strategies has been sourced from the Creative Commons text 'Educational Psychology' authored by professor of educational psychology at the University of Manitoba Kelvin Seifert and Dr. Rosemary Sutton."

    "This week's question is:

    What are your suggestions for effective classroom management strategies?


    At various times, I would imagine that classroom management is a challenge to many of us who teach -- it certainly is to me!  New years, new classes, new students (who all come from different backgrounds and previous school experiences) all can contribute to an occasional or often challenging environment. 

    How can we respond in effective and positive - not punitive - ways?"

    "Teacher collaboration is among the cornerstones of school improvement. When teachers connect-for the right reasons-good things happen.

    The ability to connect is increased exponentially through technology. Digital collaboration by teachers has an infinite numbers out possible outcomes, from formal teacher improvement, to informal connecting for people that get you. A global teacher's lounge, if you will.

    Social media-based professional development is another possible outcome when teachers connect. In contrast to sit-and-get, impersonal training, self-selected and self-directed PD has the potential for just in time, just enough, just for me qualities. The following infographic Mia MacMeekin takes these kinds of ideas and itemizes them, coming up with thirteen strategies for digital collaboration by teachers. She has a few ideas on the graphic, and we've added our own below."

    "Smart reading is a skill that students develop through using a set of robust strategies in their reading and analyzing of texts. I am not talking here about critical reading or close reading (through both of these types can be part of smart reading), smart reading is about knowing what to read, when to read , and how to read it. It is a holistic kind of practice that integrates other key reading skills such as skimming and scanning. In this wonderful visual from Learning Commons are featured some useful strategies students can use to improve their reading competencies towards becoming better and smart readers. These strategies include:"

5 Strategies For Better Teacher Professional Development - 2 views

  •  
    "Just as a teacher has to create conditions that support and encourage student success, school districts have to support teachers' professional development.

    Today, professional development runs the gamut from one-shot workshops to more intensive job-embedded professional development, which has teachers learn in the day-to-day environment in which they work rather than getting pulled out to attend an outside training.

    However, the National School Boards Association's Center for Public Education report, "Teaching the Teachers," notes that most professional development today is ineffective because it neither changes teaching practices nor improves student learning."

  •  
    "Fidgeting is a common symptom of neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD, processing disorders, learning disabilities and Asperger's. It occurs when your child carries out tasks that are not interesting enough to sustain his or her focus. The additional sensory-motor input gained through fidgeting stimulates your child's brain, allowing him or her to focus on the task at hand."
