TerraClues - Schools - 24 views

    What it is: TerraClues for Schools is an easy to use tool where teachers can create interactive "scavenger hunts" with Google maps. Teachers can access hundreds of already made TerraClues to use in conjunction with curriculum or create their own TerraClues to fit their classroom needs. Teachers can also create private classrooms where they assign students to specific hunts. TerraClues hunts can also be shared with other teachers in your school, district, or anywhere in the world. This is a fun way to learn about using maps, curriculum content, and how to navigate the Internet. This site encourages students to learn and implement problem solving skills and learn about different cultures around the world. The Google Maps can be viewed as street maps, satellite maps, or hybrid.

Addressing Access » tools » Backward Curriculum Maps: Grades 9-12 - 0 views

    IB Americas has developed a set of backward curriculum maps in order to help high schools increase participation and success in the Diploma Programme by strengthening the articulation between the MYP and Diploma Programme. These maps define some of the skills necessary for success on Diploma assessments, trace these skills back through grade 9 (level four of the MYP), present assessment and scaffolding ideas, and offer examples of MYP units that can help prepare students for the Diploma.

  • You can ask them what they noticed, but self reporting of this sort is notoriously inaccurate – if you ask people to point to what they look at, and meld that with an eyetracking overlay of where their eyes actually went there is a startling gap.
  • applied eyetracking methodologies to measure the attention-drawing effects of new and newly modified elements of search results pages.
  • there is a strong correlation where people look and where they click on search results pages
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • They look a bit like hurricane maps. People get most excited about findings where the gaze patterns are highly organized... and look a bit like a well-formed hurricane.
  • The visual design works!"
  • So, the visual design objective of a website is to draw your attention to move around the page.
  • longest looking times may not. In fact, longest looking times can, in some cases, reflect multiple lookbacks and dwell time indicating confusion or uncertainty about a next step, a label or an interaction.
  • If there is no fixation we cannot possibly process the content. If there is no fixation we can't be influenced. Amazing, but the part we should pay attention to in our eyetracking results is probably the area that is NOT highlighted!!
    Article about how people look at web pages.
    As you design web pages for use with your students -- do you wonder why they don't sometimes SEE what you're putting in front of them -- it is because of eye movement. It is design!!! This paper writes about the effect of website design on eye movement. Those who are desigining online curriculum need to understand this. My sister, Sarah, has been an onlien professor for Savannah College of Art and Design for a while, ,and this is something she talks about in her courses and shares with me. This is why I emphasize wiki layout and design w/ my students (like having a table of contents and white space.) If it is not attractive, it just doesn't exist, because it IS NOT READ! Educators will do well to remember that!

    TenMarks is the best math practice and learning program for grades 3-High School and as of today, it's FREE for teachers to use - in class or for their students to use at home. The TenMarks approach gives students a variety of problems on each topic, and ability to use hints if they need a little nudge, and immediate video lessons for them to refresh and learn the topic - on the spot. The end result - students refresh what they know and learn what they don't. Teachers choose their own curriculum (mapped to state standards), assign work to students, have it automatically graded immediately, review individual and class performance, and most importantly, take immediate action. TenMarks is super effective and real easy to use - it was designed with the help of math teachers across the country. What's more - it's FREE for the entire class!
