Evidence increases for reading on paper instead of screens - 1 views

  •  
    "[S]tudies point to better reading comprehension from printed material..." (deck). "[R]esults from 33 high-quality studies that tested students' comprehension ... showed that students of all ages, from elementary school to college, tend to absorb more when they're reading on paper than on screens, particularly when it comes to nonfiction material" (Barshay, ¶¶ 3-4). That is, without the extra bells and whistles that digital texts can potentially offer" (¶10). "Still, there isn't yet convincing proof that the digital add-ons improve reading comprehension or even match the reading comprehension that students can achieve with text on paper" (¶12). Barshay, Jill. (2019.08.12). Evidence increases for reading on paper instead of screens [online news report]. https://hechingerreport.org/evidence-increases-for-reading-on-paper-instead-of-screens/

5 Instructional Shifts to Promote Deep Learning - Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad - DigL... - 14 views

  • The seamless integration of technology into the Common Core-aligned curriculum supports learning through active participation and increases opportunities for all students to have access to the tools and information they need for success.
  •  
    Oxnevad suggests, "Students can develop transferrable knowledge and skills as they engage in learning experiences that require them to construct knowledge" (¶1). She argues for "seamless integration of technology" that will enable "students students to have access to the tools and information they need for success" (¶2), and proposes five instructional strategies for teachers to use to achieve those ends, namely: 1. Preparing "complex questions that require students to use higher level thinking skills" (Help students uncover knowledge, ¶2); 2. Facilitating learning from engaging and online resources, rather than delivering content (Eliminate the front of the classroom); 3. Creating opportunities for real world collaboration (Encourage collaboration); 4. Exploiting classroom and online opportunities for "frequent [and] informal assessment to gauge the effectiveness of your instruction and make adjustments to maximize the learning experience for each student" (Informally assess students [and instructional practices]); and 5. Preparing and publishing screencast tutorials for students to peruse whenever necessary, "...[i]Instead of spending valuable instructional time teaching the same tech skills over and over again to individual students" (Provide students with built in tech support). This October 30, 2012, post ends with an illustration comprising focus questions and a ThingLink product of fifth grade students' work. A list of links to related posts follows.
