Using Book Creator for Differentiated Learning

EdTechTeacher

Differentiated instruction gives students multiple options for taking in information, making sense of their ideas and then expressing what they know (Tomlinson, 2001). As educators, we understand that our students bring different learner profiles, strengths, challenges, and interests to learning. Meeting student variability and planning differing approaches can be a challenge.

Adding up the cost of head-on competition

The Christensen Institute

Microsoft’s Xbox gaming console launched in late 2001 into a sustaining competition with Sony’s Playstation, the dominant incumbent at the time. And that doesn’t account for the money Microsoft had to invest in the years leading up to 2001 in preparation for the launch. Everyday people come up with innovative ideas for products and services they’re sure will be impactful. But where in the market should they aim their products in order to increase their odds of success?

Me and My World-Teaching Sustainability to Young Children

It allows them to see the purpose of their efforts (Katz, 2001). A greater focus has been placed on our environment in recent years. We hear the terms sustainability, climate crisis, global warming, carbon footprint, hazardous waste, greenhouse effect, and more…all aimed at raising awareness. Some of these topics can seem confusing even for adults; so, how do we teach young children about these concepts in a way that they can understand?

The Value of Listening in the Classroom: How to Teach Your Students Active Listening

Waterford

Language Arts Journal of Michigan, 2001, 17(2), pp. Here’s a fast fact: over 60% of all misunderstandings come from poor listening and only 1% from poor reading.[11] 11] If you don’t currently teach your students specifically how to listen, it may be time to add activities to your curriculum that strengthen this skill. The benefits of strong listening skills may begin in class, but they extend through all aspects of your student’s academic and personal lives.

Rebecca Solnit and How Pockets of Hope Have Saved America

America had a million chances to get this moment right, including but not exclusive to: 1776, 1863, 1937, 1945, 1964, 2001, 2009, and 2012. In my recent post on Medium , I decided to take a crack at the largesse we call "curriculum" and why textbooks have never been sufficient: While I’ve appreciated the effort to collect resources (see #CharlottesvilleSyllabus from graduate students at the university), I’ve become wary of collecting resources for the sake of collection.

Collaborative Learning Matters

Where Learning Clicks

In early 2001, Steve Jobs, then the CEO of Apple, summoned a motley crew of employees and contractors to meet in a secret boardroom. Jobs tasked the team with an ambitious assignment: create a new MP3 player in six weeks. By all accounts, the group should have failed. The timeline to complete the project was unrealistically short and the team consisted of five engineering, marketing, and design executives who all had strong, competing views about how to develop the product.

Yet by 2001, there were roughly one billion mobile phone connections globally, a far cry from what McKinsey predicted. In the early 1980s, AT&T decided to pull out of the mobile phone development business.

And today, by some estimates, there are close to nine billion mobile phone connections in the world.

Climbing the Pyramid of Bloom’s Taxonomy Through the Writing Process

EdTechTeacher

Though our conversation began as a result of an article by Granello in 2001, that presented a case for using Bloom’s Taxonomy as a framework to improve the writing of doctoral literature reviews, we questioned what this might look like both in terms of the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy (Krathwohl, 2002) as well as in a K-12 environment.
