    This site encourages children to be creative and share ideas. It's a cross between a blog and a digital canvas and formatting is really simple. Users just drag and drop the images and text however they wish. There is also a teacher sign up option, which lets you quickly add a whole class or school. http://ictmagic.wikispaces.com/ICT+%26+Web+Tools

    An excellent article by Terry Heick on TeachThought about the development of critical thinking skills, how to infer and how to learn to infer, all of which lead to the identification and establishment of essential questions. A great read!

Educational Leadership:How Teachers Learn:Learning with Blogs and Wikis - 57 views

  • Bloggers spend significant time pushing their own thinking—and having their thinking pushed by others. They respond to comments and link to other writers, connecting to and creating interesting ideas. Some develop curriculum and instructional materials together. Others review resources and debate the merits of the individual tools of teaching. Philosophical conversations about what works in schools are common as teachers talk about everything from homework and grading practices to school and district policies that affect teaching and learning. Blogs become a forum for public articulation—and public articulation is essential for educators interested in refining and revising their thinking about teaching and learning.
  • That's when I introduce them to RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed readers.

      What a great post. I remember reading something about "Zero the Hero". Think about how many of our kids think they are nothing because others have labeled them weird. In reality, they are the ones who will make a difference!

      Yes, how do you remove the stickies from my Edmodo page?
    • Roy Sovis
       
      Cathy, I loaded the Diigo toolbar in IE, Firefox, and Chrome. It's the only toolbar I use. In Firefox and IE, I click on the Diigo icon in the toolbar and mouse hover over "See All Annotations". Another menu will open in whcih you can select the setting you desire in regards to public and private annotations/sticky notes.
    • Brenna Novak
       
      I like using the highlighting and sticky notes. This can be a great tool to use with my students. Just like I am doing for Edmodo by pointing out the different features of the site.
    • Dan Warren
       
      OK. Nice. Now, how do I get rid of the notes floating on my Edmodo page?
    • A Kashdan
       
      I started using Diigo, but I have no idea why I'm seeing these notes.
    • carmelladoty
       
      Ok, I read the sticky notes, now how do I remove them?
    • Diego Tutor
       
      You can't remove them as they are not your notes, they were published by somebody else in a group where you have access to (Public, Diigo in Education, etc.). You have the option to hide them through the Diigo toolbar, or you can abandon the group not to see any notes from any member in it. :)

A Personal Cyberinfrastructure (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE - 3 views

shared by Ben Rimes on 11 Sep 09 - Cached
  • Pointing students to data buckets and conduits we've already made for them won't do. Templates and training wheels may be necessary for a while, but by the time students get to college, those aids all too regularly turn into hindrances. For students who have relied on these aids, the freedom to explore and create is the last thing on their minds, so deeply has it been discouraged. Many students simply want to know what their professors want and how to give that to them.
    • Ben Rimes
       
      This is why the gradual release of responsibility is so important at all levels of education. While some meta-responsibilities need to be unloaded onto the learner at a very young age (scheduling and structuring work time, note taking, reflection, etc.), other tasks and scripts for learning within the context of a specific discipline can be scaffolded and then released to the learner throughout K-12.
