The Research Cycle - 0 views

  •  
    "As the information landscape shifts to offer far more information in an often befuddling manner that some have called "data smog," many schools are learning that traditional approaches to student research are inadequate to meet the essential learning goals set by most states or provincial governments. With hundreds of computers and dozens of classrooms connected to extensive electronic information resources, schools are recognizing the importance of reinventing the way they engage students in both questioning and research.

    ABSTRACT
    This paper argues that the "kindergarten approach to
    learning" - characterized by a
    spiraling cycle of Imagine,
    Create, Play, Share, Reflect,
    and back to Imagine - is
    ideally suited to the needs of the 21
    st
    century, helping
    learners develop the creative-thinking skills that are critical
    to success and satisfaction in today's society. The paper
    discusses strategies for designing new technologies that
    encourage and support kindergarten-style learning,
    building on the success of traditional kindergarten
    materials and activities, but extending to learners of all
    ages, helping them continue to develop as creative thinkers. "

Notice and Note: Strategies for Close Reading: Kylene Beers, Robert E. Probst: 97803250... - 0 views

  •  
    ""Just as rigor does not reside in the barbell but in the act of lifting it, rigor in reading is not an attribute of a text but rather of a reader s behavior engaged, observant, responsive, questioning, analytical. The close reading strategies in Notice and Note will help you cultivate those critical reading habits that will make your students more attentive, thoughtful, independent readers."
    Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst

    In Notice and Note Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst introduce 6 signposts that alert readers to significant moments in a work of literature and encourage students to read closely. Learning first to spot these signposts and then to question them, enables readers to explore the text, any text, finding evidence to support their interpretations. In short, these close reading strategies will help your students to notice and note.

    In this timely and practical guide Kylene and Bob
    * examine the new emphasis on text-dependent questions, rigor, text complexity, and what it means to be literate in the 21st century
    * identify 6 signposts that help readers understand and respond to character development, conflict, point of view, and theme
    * provide 6 text-dependent anchor questions that help readers take note and read more closely
    * offer 6 Notice and Note model lessons, including text selections and teaching tools, that help you introduce each signpost to your students.

    Notice and Note will help create attentive readers who look closely at a text, interpret it responsibly, and reflect on what it means in their lives. It should help them become the responsive, rigorous, independent readers we not only want students to be but know our democracy demands."

Branding BYOD: On/Off| The Committed Sardine - 0 views

  •  
    "There is a new acronym that is rapidly becoming embedded in the public narrative about technology and learning: BYOD. It stands for Bring Your Own Device. It opens up an area of inquiry that can be summarized in the following questions: How should communities, schools, and teachers address the issue of students wanting to bring their own digital devices to school? What new opportunities and challenges would a pro-BYOD-or an anti-BYOD policy-present? How do educators manage a BYOD world?"
