  •  
    In this post, Tolisano stipulated, "Blogging should not be an add-on, not an isolated project, but should be seen as PEDAGOGY" (¶1, emphasis in original). She lauded blogging for its affordances facilitating learning through reading, writing, reflecting, and sharing.

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).

How could you incorporate Diigo into your classroom/session setting in a pegagogically ... - 0 views

  • I created a list to one of my courses where my students themselves brought a video about environment : A beautiful lie.
    It was a really good experience because of the richness of their comments. Some of them in a good English , some of them in Spanglish.

    I had the idea to go on with that topic so I made a list with three pages (just an experiment) I highlighted some paragraphs and sticked notes suggesting the activity we're going to do with that.
    Then I got the widget and embeded into my blog.

How do you envision using the Webslides feature? | Diigo - 0 views

  • During the Blogging4Educators session that we co-moderated earlier this year, we created a lot of content on various sites. I bookmarked these sites, saved them to the list Blogging4Educators, and then looked at the webslides. It looks really professional, and is easy to share with others!

    so, let´s imagine I wanted to my students to explore some listening sites, like I have done before, the webslides would have been much more interesting than the list of links I provided them.

  • Some weeks ago, I read Michele Martin´s interesting post about creating an e-portfolio in Delicious.
    http://michelemartin.typepad.com/thebambooprojectblog//2008/06/using-delicious.html

    As we had started testing Diigo, I decided to start my portfolio here just by deciding on a unique tag, digifolio_carlaarena. Then, I created a list called "digifolio" and started adding the pages that represented my work, projects, thoughts, ideas, collections. It's just in the beginning, but I guess it has potential and it can show a bit about who you are, what you believe in, what you do in a very interesting way. Still lots to do, though...I want to narrate it or, at least, add some music to it, but I haven't had time (suffering a lot on vacation in Boston!!!). The description of my list, I used to add some info about the digifolio. Then, for the description space for each link, I added some aspect about my project, work, collection or thought. Well, just an idea. I hope you enjoy it. And suggestions and comments are always welcome to improve it!

    I must admit that when I first heard about
    Twitter
    I thought it represented the apex of
    what concerns me about internet technology: solipsism and sound-bite
    communication. While I obviously spend a great deal of time online and thinking
    about the potential of these new networked digital communication structures, I
    also worry about the way that they too easily lead to increasingly short space
    and time for conversation, cutting off nuance and conversation, and what is
    often worse how these conversations often reduce to self-centered statements.
