Liste des "tips" pour créer des énigmes Escape game mathématiques… Après le jeu de piste littéraire, je vous propose une autre activité ludique pour la fin d’année et permettant cette fois-ci de travailer les mathématiques et plus particulièrement la résolution de problèmes : un escape game. Pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas le principe de ce jeu que j’adore: il faut normalement s’échapper en une heure d’une pièce dans laquelle on est enfermé en fouillant de partout et en résolvant des énigmes et des codes. Comme il n’est pas question d’enfermer les élèves dans une pièce;-), il s’agira pour eux de découvrir le code d’un cadenas et de réussir à l’ouvrir en moins d’une heure. Dans la classe, je vais répartir les élèves en 3 équipes chacune associée à un code couleur : les bleus, les rouges et les verts. (On peut aussi utiliser le matériel pour faire 3 escape games en classe entière). Chaque équipe devra fouiller la classe ou la zone de jeu et y découvrir 7 enveloppes de la couleur de son équipe.

20 Things Educators Need To Know About Digital Literacy Skills Widely understood to be essential to success in the workplace and modern life, digital literacy is beginning to emerge as a necessary component of curricula across the globe. As current undergraduates have never known a life without the internet, it’s only natural that universities should nurture their familiarity with technology, encouraging its use in teaching and learning. Instructors should also be prepared to offer guidance on what students aren’t as familiar with–turning their technical skills into skills for lifelong learning and employability. But where does one begin? Digital literacy isn’t about knowing computers inside and out; it’s about using technology to change the way you think. These are vague descriptions, as are most of the descriptions you’ll find of digital literacy in blog posts and journal articles online. Below are the top do’s and don’ts we’ve come across–in research and in our own experience–when it comes to making students digitally literate. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 1.

Wingdings Translator ☜☜☜ Convert regular English text to copy and pasteable Wingdings text. ☜■&□⍓✏ This is just a simple translator that you can use to convert text to Wingdings, or Wingdings to text. Note: I recently fixed it to prevent some of the characters from rendering as emojis. What is Wingdings? Wingdings is series of symbols implemented by Microsoft in the 1990s. The original Wingdings has 3 other variations, Wingdings 2, Wingdings 3, and Webdings - all initially created by Microsoft. Copy and paste Usually, if you try to copy and paste Wingdings, you wont actually be able to paste the Wingdings symbols anywhere - you'll just end up pasting the actual keyboard characters that you typed. Unicode is a computing industry standard which standardises thousands of symbols, letters and characters across a large portion of the relevant parts of the computing industry. P.S. ↓ Read more

Sharing a Great Resource and Techniques for Web Content Fact Checking If we Don't Teach Students how to Confirm the Validity of Information They Find on the Internet, Who Will? In yesterday's post, we were introduced to Michael Caulfield's free, Creative Commons licensed eBook, “Web Literacy for Student Fact Checkers“. Today we'll check out some of the strategies he suggests. First Strategy: Look for Previous Work (has someone already done the fact-checking for you?). Caulfield suggests the use of fact checking sites like Snopes.com, Factcheck.org, and Politifact.com to see if they may have already researched and written about the information you are checking into. Building on this suggestion, Caulfield offers one of my favorite web search parameters – the “site” function. Caulfield also offers some great insights into Wikipedia, helping teachers and students alike to understand that it is generally a far more useful and accurate tool than some believe it to be. Second Strategy: “Go Upstream” (seek out the original source) Third Strategy: Read Laterally

How To Make Any Worksheet Into an Escape Room in the Classroom - Teach Every Day Using an Escape Room in the classroom is a super fun way to engage your students in any topic. But you do not need to spend countless hours making one, nor do you need to buy locks and boxes. It is easy to turn (almost) any worksheet into an Escape Room! If you are not familiar with the idea of the Escape Room, let me explain. You search the room, finding clues and using them to unlock more clues – eventually completing the mystery and Escaping from the Room. Escape Room companies are popping up all over the place – there is even one now in my own tiny town. Now, innovative and clever teachers all over the country have adapted the idea to making an Escape Rooms in the classroom. I made an Escape Room last year for my high school Biology students for the Ecology unit. But it was awesome! I didn’t. However, I have recently seen another teacher rock a super easy-to-make Escape Room in the classroom that only took her fifteen minutes to set up – and did not even require the locks and boxes.

Digital Literacy & Citizenship Resources “If you are on social media, and you are not learning, not laughing, not being inspired or not networking, then you are using it wrong.” ― Germany Kent The only constant in this world is change. The world that many educators grew up in does not exist for our students today. We are connected to the world like never before, but the the world also has unprecedented access to us. It is important for educators, students, and parents to recognize that we all have a digital footprint. I believe all educators have responsibility to help our students become digitally literate and I my PLN has been helping me organize these resources.
