What to do when a student constantly refuses to work - 1 views

  •  
    "Here's what I do when a student refuses to work:
    "I'm going to assume that your first step is always identifying and addressing the root cause of the student's refusal to work. I'm also assuming you've already modified and/or clarified the assignment and considered the obvious interventions."
    Lots of good advice for classroom management here.

    "Description: Amazing augmented reality map-based app where users pin images to specific geo-locations for others to discover. Upload photos, clues for a virtually trail, or virtually displaying work around your school. Default set to share to contacts only for pupils to use safely, but teachers can share publicly."
    This look like a great idea for creative projects -- students can make trails for each other/other groups to follow.

The Problem with "Formative Assessment Tools" (part 1 of 2) - Cooper on Curriculum - 1 views

  •  
    "Formative assessment is a planned process in which teachers or students use assessment-based evidence to adjust what they're currently doing.
    "In other words, if teachers or students are not leveraging results/data (from Socrative, Kahoot!, Plickers, etc.) to then differentiate instruction or learning, the app inspired dog and pony show does not qualify as a formative assessment.
    "Formative assessment is a process…not an event, questions on a piece of paper, or even an app. What makes an assessment formative depends on the context in which it is used."
    Based on a blog/book co-authored by Ross Cooper and Erin Murphy. You can sign up for more chapters free on the site. The articles represent a measured discussion of how apps and "cool tools" can be used successfully, without hype.

Reading Resources - Free Online Reading Resources for Teachers - JumpStart - 2 views

  •  
    Online resources are a great way to individualize/personalize reading habits: "Teachers trying to motivate or teach students to read can find lots of reading resources online. This includes printable worksheets, lesson plans, reading diaries for students, reading certificates for encouragement, fun activities, audio-visual aids, and tons of other resources that teachers can use in the classroom. Some teachers like to use audio hooks - audio extracts that stop just where the story gets interesting. The teacher can then hand out copies of the book, since students are much more likely to want to read the book after hearing the hook. For students who can read on their own, it is important to have the type of books they like to read. In some classes, this may amount to a very large collection of books. It is also important to ensure that the language of the books matches the reading abilities of the students. An alternative to stocking up on a large collection of books that meet these criteria is to use e-libraries to encourage reading."
