Stötta eleverna i deras lärande

I läroplanen för gymnasiskolan står det: Undervisningen ska anpassas till varje elevs förutsättningar och behov. I Lgr11 står samma sak men med ett förtydligande: Undervisningen ska anpassas till varje elevs förutsättningar och behov. Den ska främja elevernas fortsatta lärande och kunskapsutveckling med utgångspunkt i elevernas bakgrund, tidigare erfarenheter, språk och kunskaper. Vad innebär då detta för oss som lärare?

Flipboard As a Textbook Replacement. OK…so let me clarify that title.

Flipboard As a Textbook Replacement

I honestly think textbooks are on their way out…or at least I hope they are. Really it should read “Flipboard as core curation artifact for classrooms” but that wouldn’t have you here reading now would it. I’m in love with Flipboard. I have been for awhile now….it’s one of the first apps that gets downloaded on all devices. But lately as I’ve been thinking about the death of textbooks and what might replace them I have started to dig deeper into Flipboard and really think it has a ton of potential to be that core curation body of knowledge for teachers and students.

Why Flipboard: Can be installed on all devices! Flipboard Magazines: This really is the game changer. So basically a teacher would have a flipboard account….set up a magazine for thier class and then “flip” all the articles, resources, etc they want students to access into the magazine. Class as Content Curators: Of course….that would work but I think we can go farther. But Wait There’s More! Feeding Our Students' Reading Interests with RSS.

And, according the Pew Internet Project (1), teens have a device ownership rate of 68 percent for smartphones and, overall, 91 percent for cell phones. As devices proliferate, the amount of information we encounter each day grows. Despite their access to more substantive reading material, however, our students are most often consuming what journalist Clive Thompson calls "short form (2)" writing -- status updates, tweets, text messages -- without digging into other texts. Edutopia writers have long promoted RSS (3), and it is time now that we apply some of our wisdom about how to develop PLNs (4) to make RSS reading a regular part of our students' lives.
