Real News, Fake News or Opinion? Teaching Our Students to Discern the Difference | KQED... - 1 views

    "It used to be so easy to distinguish between truth and fiction. In previous years, I would focus on just teaching my students the difference between fact and opinion. Now the Internet has become a murky river of information, and buzzwords like "fake news" and "alternative facts" have become real concerns of an educated society. How do we teach our students to discern all these differences in this post-truth era?"

Teaching Social Justice: 25 Books To Encourage Students To Change The World - - 3 views

    "What are the kinds of ideas that convince people that they can change the world?

    What about students-what kinds of inspiration or knowledge or confidence or vision do they need to believe they can affect real change in their community?

    This is, at its heart, a matter of critical literacy-the kind of knowledge that empowers students to change their world. Social activism often appears in light of political leaning, but is first a matter of people gathering for a common cause in pursuit of change."

Are We Killing Students Love of Math? - Teacher Tech - 1 views

    "I was at a friends house and saw their child working on a math worksheet for Algebra. THIRTY SIX exponents problems. Take a look at this website with an image of math work from 1898. It is almost exactly the same thing! Over ONE HUNDRED years later and students are doing the same assignments?! Let's teach like it is 2017 not 1900!

Blogging About The Web 2.0 Connected Classroom: 3 Untapped Social Media Resources For S... - 2 views

    "Last week I laid out 3 Untapped Social Media Resources for Teachers. This week we take a look at how to leverage social networks for students. 

    My sister is a senior in high school. Whenever we spend time together I ask her about "what the kids are into these days?" She is right in the heart of the age range for kids who use social media the most (13-18 yrs old). Our conversations give me a sense of how kids are using social media and her thoughts on using it for learning, or even if there is a place for it.

    She tells me all the time that she's "addicted" to her phone, just like most adults. Most of her time is spent on Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram. She and her friends are sending photos, snaps and videos back and forth all day long. That is their world. They are continually capturing what is happening around them and sharing it with each other.

    And we have the data to back her up. "

Helping students to become problem finders - The Learner's Way - 1 views

    For students engaging in creative personalised learning projects such as a 'Genius Hour' or 'Personal Passion project it can often be difficult for them to uncover the right project. Students have become so reliant upon their teachers to pose them problems that when they are given the option to explore one of their own design they don't know where to start. This is indeed a significant challenge as we know that our students will enter a workforce and world of learning beyond school where they must be active problem finders. How then might we provide the support they require without removing the opportunity for truly personalised exploration.
