Alternativ läslogg Läsloggar är ett utmärkt arbetsverktyg i läsundervisningen har varit min åsikt till jag läste en liten artikel med rubriken Rethinking Reading Logs. Artikelförfattaren Sarah Davis upptäckte en dag att – ja, visst läste hennes elever och skrev sina läsloggar – men det fanns ett MEN, upptäckte Sarah. Eleverna såg på läsningen som en uppgift och inte på något de gjorde för nöjes skull. Inte heller när de faktiskt uppskattade boken de läste. I stället började Sarah prova olika modeller. Det hon fastnade för var att övervaka läsningen via en klasslista. Vi vet från senare tids forskning att tyst läsning i sig inte utvecklar våra elevers läsförmåga. Prova lässtrategin vi gick igenom.Uppmärksamma hur huvudpersonen agerar och vad som gör att hen agerar just så.Föreställ dig miljön som författaren beskriver så att du i vårt boksurr kan beskriva den.Leta efter en bra början.Lägg märke till ett kapitels tema.Använd sådant du kan för att lista ut vad nya ord betyder.

YouTube Launches Site Specifically for Teachers | MindShift | The 21st Century | Digital Tools Teaching Strategies Educators who’ve been wanting to use YouTube videos in class can now find an easy way in. Today, YouTube launched its own teacher’s channel:, a guide to using videos in class. Teachers can follow tips that show everything from organizing videos to sparking lively discussions to help struggling students through videos. Teachers can also sign up to become part of the YouTube Teachers Community, a mailing list that allows them to share ideas and best practices.

That’s a good question this post looks to answer. Every year, we put together a collection of what we believe are the best teaching and learning apps for that year. (Here, for example, is our 2015 version of the list below, where you will notice about half the apps are the same, and half have changed. This year, we were asked by the good folks at Easelly (the infographic and visual data platform) to create a collection of resources that while including their apps, would curate a lot of good stuff teachers would benefit from in 2016. Additionally, Easelly has created a free eBook–How to Use in your Classroom–which is a useful tool for teachers integrating Common Core standards, for example, which call for students to work with different mediums to extract key ideas and data.

Khan Academy 80 Open Education Resource (OER) Tools for Publishing and Development Initiatives Many Open Education Resources (OER) have been introduced by governments, universities, and individuals within the past few years. OERs provide teaching and learning materials that are freely available and offered online for anyone to use. Whether you’re an instructor, student, or self-learner, you have access to full courses, modules, syllabi, lectures, assignments, quizzes, activities, games, simulations, and tools to create these components. While some OERs include OpenCourseWare (OCW) or other educational materials, they may also offer the means to alter those courses through editing, adding to those courses through publication, and the ability to shape the tools that share those resources. Additionally, they may maintain forums or other platforms where individuals can collaborate on building educational tools and documentation and the reach for those materials. This list is not all-inclusive, as resources that offer limited collaboration were excluded.
