How will you use INFOhio resources to personalize learning?
I am super excited about the plethora of resources you have shared today! I will continue to expose the amazing teachers from our region to these resources, and I will integrate the "Go, Ask, Act, Achieve" into the work I am doing in the region with Problem Based Learning. Thank you.
We will be using elements of Research 4 Success to create a scaffolded honors research project that begins in the seventh grade and builds into the eight grade
Book Nook looks like a great resource that we can use to add our nine week reading projects. This will help to motivate our students to read more. It can also help them to preview and find books to read for their projects.
I already started a favorites list and sent myself 6 resources about academic vocabulary from the educator toolkit. I plan to use these resources as I create professional development for Alliance High School staff about teaching vocabulary in all content areas.
My students consistently struggle with finding credible sources. Ebsco would be a useful tool to restrict them to only credible sources instead of whatever they pull off Google. I also like how the articles are cited for the students to save time. Much better than jumping over to easybib all the tiem.
I am excited to use the Go! Ask, Act, Achieve when we start our research unit on the Industrial Revolution.
I will use the R4S research tool to achieve some cross-subject integration e.g. using the character of Lady Macbeth and connecting her to the month of March (International Womens Month). I am also intrigued by Book Nook and its applications with a book study project for my Honors 9 class.
I am planning to incorporate the idea of student-created book trailers through "Book Nook." This will be a great way to assess student comprehension over their Indepdendent Reading novels AND foster a love for reading! I also think many of the resources in Go! Ask, Act, Achieve will be valuable as I strive to incorporate more PBL in my classroom.
There is a lot information and resources in Infohio, so I think it's important to choose one or two tools to start with and become comfortable using those first before branching out. One tool is the Go! portion of the website, I think this can be used to help students who struggle to get started with assignments and research. A lot of time students don't know where to begin, the links and tools on this page can give those students the nudge they need. The second resource is booknook. If I can use this resource as a way to get students watch and listen to one of their peers endorse a book they just read, it just might get them interested enough to pick it up and read it themselves!
The R. G. Drage table:
We will definitely be able to use the Career Collection tool to help our career tech students find out a variety of information about their program and different future opportunities for them.
Also, the Research 4 Success tool will help in all tasks pertaining to the research process.
I liked the differentiation available in the Points of View Reference Center.
I will use these resources to find materials for my students that will engage them in their learning on multiple levels. I enjoyed learning about the Educator Tools and found them beneficial to my planning. I anticipate that they will be helpful in keeping my students engaged and focused on learning.
The amount of information accessable through Info Ohio is amazing! I love "I wonder" and the interactive portions of Britanica. The other sources for science and social studies are amazing and could increase our cross curriculum content and encourage students to apply skills in more broad ways. "Go, Ask, Achieve" and "Book Nook" could both be used to help inccrease motivation and PBL. This was very helpful.
I like the Go! Ask! Act! Achieve! to empower student learning. I also plan on using the World Book Student for research links in Google Classroom.
In writing conferences, some of my gifted students identify that their struggle to write is complicated by procrastination. I was able today to embed in my schoology course a self help infographic designed to offer 15 Ways to Beat Procrastination! I can't wait to share these resources with my Pre-AP students.
I can definitely visualize the possibility of assigning my students to create a Book Nook book trailer about a book of their choice, one every nine weeks. I can also see myself inviting each student to locate a designated number of articles of their choice, based on interest, per nine weeks to read (cold, warm and hot read) and then assign the same or different reading skills for students to focus on and share with their classmates.
