There are some very popular tools and apps out there. We showcase a boatload of them here on Edudemic. But there’s been a growing trend of figuring out how to actually integrate all these together and how to effectively use the best web tools to enhance learning in the classroom. One of the most powerful visualizations to date has been the fabulous Padagogical Wheel (with an ‘a’ instead of an ‘e’) that shows how to integrate iPads into just about everything like SAMR and beyond. Now there’s a new visual guide that you should check out. It’s a pyramid that I spotted on Pinterest here . How The Best Web Tools Fit Into Bloom's Digital Taxonomy
mfortably 2.0: The Digital Citizenship Survival Kit It's a simple little prop I use when teaching Digital Citizenship to our K-8 #aurorahuskies students. I love utilizing props to try to get my point across to students. To me, it helps a student retain the lesson better.

Can the Digital Generation Do Anything Right? - Marketplace K-12 Last week, the news media, including Education Week, wrote about a new study from the Pew Research Center surveying 2,000 teachers on how their students do research in the digital world. Many of those teachers, 77 percent, believed digital tools have an overall positive impact on research, but 87 percent said the tools were a distraction causing short attention spans.

a literature review as collective and inner library I recently mentioned in passing in this blog, in relation to writing book reviews in fact, the book by Pierre Bayard provocatively entitled How to talk about books you haven’t read (2007). I want to suggest now that this is actually a book worth reading – not so that you can literally do what the title suggests, although you might feel this is very acceptable after you’ve read it – but rather worth reading for the key points that Bayard makes. I contend that these are as relevant to academic reading – and the dreaded ‘literature review’ in particular – as any of the how-to-do it texts, including my own.
How Google Impacts The Way Students Think It’s always revealing to watch learners research. When trying to understand complex questions often as part of multi-step projects, they often simply “Google it.” Why do people migrate?

Knowing how to organise, filter, research, evaluate and bookmark resources online is a valuable skill for students to gain. However, we can’t assume giving students access to a social bookmark tool means they’ll know what’s expected or will gain the necessary skills. Social Bookmarking with students: Quality not quantity!
A number of studies have demonstrated the problems with insufficient information literacy in the workplace. Bill Boyd (2005) estimates that in a 1,000 person organisation, if you eliminate five minutes of wasted time, such as deleting and organising emails, looking for information that you can't find, or recreating information that already exists, you will save $4,167; if you do that everyday for a year, the organisation will have saved more than $1 million. The 2011 National Strategic Skills Audit for Wales quotes evidence from the 2010 e-skills survey that 1 in 6 employers in all sectors in Wales consider the IT skills of their employees to be below a minimum standard. library.wales.org: Information Literacy in the Workplace
