Putting Activities Through the SAMR Exercise | Langwitches Blog - 0 views

  •  
    "Part of learning in 2014 is NOT to just CONSUME information, but to also contribute and create information.

    If you enjoy reading the information and resources shared here on the Langwitches blog or via my Twitter feed, consider taking the time to contribute. There is no grade assigned to your contribution, there is no certificate attached and there is no one waving their finger at you, if you don't turn your homework in.

    This is your chance to collaborate , contribute and pushing forward in education (and LEARN along the way)! Read on…"

Building Community Activities Just for You | Blogging Through the Fourth Dimension - 4 views

  •  
    "Every year I try to have various community building activities for the kids to do on those first few days of school. And while I detest ice breakers, in 5th grade, we do like the occasional get to know me activity. Though the years I have used various scavenger hunts, time capsules, and bingo games to get to know them a bit better, to get them to know each other, and also for me to keep until the end of the year. Then when summer beckons and we cannot believe that the year is over, I pull out the forgotten letters, the time capsules, the about me's, and we reminisce and we laugh and we shake our heads at the answers we gave so long ago.

  •  
    "Literacy is changing-not at its core necessarily, but certainly at its edges as it expands to include new kinds of "reading."

    Digital media is quickly replacing traditional media forms as those most accessible to most 21st century learners. The impact of this change is extraordinarily broad, but for now we'll narrow it down to changes in how learners respond to the media they consume."
