Weekend Ed. Quote~June 28

To increase your chances of happiness and success, you must ‘find your tennis ball–the thing that pulls you.’” ~Drew Houston, Dropbox founder in this post, “Find Your Passion With These 8 Thought-Provoking Questions” found on ScoopIt

Surfly~Share Links Remotely~Surf the Web Together

Sharing is a Good Thing. Been that way since Kindergarten

Surfly is big on sharing.

Surfly is a new web-based app which allows you co-browse any web page while being able to show and see each other live cursor in real-time. You can invite multiple attendees, and each one of them can see your selected web pages no matter what kind of device or screen size they have. As you scroll the page, they see it scrolling too. To start a session you simply share a URL with those who you want to invite. No software to download or install. No need to even to register or login. My comment: The best, easiest and most convenient tool to co-browse and collaborate over any web page at a distance. It works instantly. Nothing to do make it work.

Socratic Questioning

Many teachers are puzzled with the encouragement, directive, mandate to bring “student-led” activities to their classroom. Many are equally wary of relinquishing control when migrating from “safe on the stage” to “guide on the side.”

Socratic questioning is one way to adapt to both of these instructional shifts.

This infographic provides a great visual for teachers and students to implement the Socratic method of questioning. It includes 6 sections with sample questions that might be asked:

1. Clarification

2. Probing Assumptions

3. Probing Rationals

4. Questioning Viewpoints

5. Probing Consequences

6. Questions on the Question
