Weekend Ed. Quote ~ July 31

This week’s ed. quote is a nod to the Digital Immigrant Pioneers of the past


“In an inquiry learning environment we never want to suggest that all that can be said on a topic has been said. And learners need to be able to return to old forums to re-read and decide for themselves what it all meant. So we leave one session’s discussions behind to focus on new ones, but old ones are never really closed in the very brief courses we facilitate.” ~Marsha West, PBS TeacherLine pioneer, 2005

Are Comic Books ‘Real’ Books?

From Eisner’s warning that “Comics as a reading form was always assumed to be a threat to literacy” (Eisner, 1985/2002, p. 3) seems at odds with the popularity of comic books, comic book stores, and online comic websites.
Comic books are an engaging component in a literacy book collection (Yarmi, Lestari, & Yufiarti, 2019). Not only can they provide reading opportunities, comic books form a writing and creating opportunities too (Griffiths, 2019).

That’s the research angle, but what is your perspective? Do comic books rise to the status of “Real Books’?                   To answer this question, let’s consider a wise perspective from Young Sheldon:

 

What would you choose for your superhero name? 

Mine would be the Notorious RPB  =  “ReadsPastBedtime”

Please leave a comment and share your superhero name!

Instructional Options with Interactive Google Maps

Today Dr. Terrence Cavanaugh presented a very informative Webinar from the SITE Distance Education SIG on “Using Nudging to Keep Online Students On Track.”

I learned about many inviting and collaborative activities for my online graduate students. My favorite activity was using Google Maps to create personalized maps reflecting our class.

Here is our map with various school locations where we’ve taught. Below the map are some of our collective curricular ideas for using the map in instruction.

 

 

Curricular Applications of Personalized Google Maps
~ list to be updated as new ideas are shared in class

Plot locations of:

  1. historical events
  2. monuments

PBS Webinar: Create Fun & Interactive Learning Centers

PBSLearningCenter Webinar
Fun AND instructive learning centers provide a rich opportunity for children to develop and deepen their understanding of the world around them as they engage in different types of play and exploration. They also create equitable learning opportunities by providing youngsters multiple pathways to explore and deepen their understanding of important concepts. But this does not happen without thoughtful, intentional preparation and skillful guidance by the teacher.
Join PBS on September 24 at 5 PM ET in a Webinar to learn how to design equitable learning centers that build knowledge, engage children in inquiry, prompt critical thinking, and foster collaborative and playful learning.
You will receive a CE Certificate by attending the webinar.
After the webinar, you’ll be able to:
  • Plan learning center activities that are evidence based.
  • Plan learning center activities that are accessible to children.
  • Plan learning center activities that are deliberately connected to the disciplinary studies of the day or week.
  • Assemble an array of learning centers intentionally designed to provide children with multiple learning pathways.
