Rubrics? Just Google Form It.
This link is to a video teaching how to make a grading rubric Google Forms and have the results automatically populate a Google Spreadsheet (like an excel spreadsheet). Once in a Google Spreadsheet, you have the option to view it in chart form. Kinda reminds me of this other cool tool that makes beautiful charts of your students’ digital portfolio.

Anyway the best way to explain this is through the art of screenshot…

The video is very helpful so don’t be nervous if you’re new to Google Drive. It’s user friendly and the video walks you right through it… with one of the better tutorial soundtracks I’ve enjoyed.

Flipped classrooms
Not gonna act like I’m not interested in this one. In a study, the University of North Carolina’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy saw an increase in academic performance when students essentially studied for class through books and online lectures. When they get to class they took a quiz or assessment together and the teacher saw their responses live from cheap clickers. “Maybe 50 percent of the class got the wrong answer to one of these questions: This gave [the professor] an opportunity to lecture just enough so that students could understand what they got wrong.” I’d be very interested to take a class like this. I love that people are the flipping the status quo on its head to see if we can learn better.

 Get your teaching apps! Get your teaching apps here!
Apple launched a teacher app section of it’s iTunes store as one of its two new sections acknowledging the iPad’s new role in the classroom. The first section is aimed at teachers and is broken down into categories like “The Basics” with Dropbox and Evernote, “Time Savers,” and “Get Inspired.” The second section is aimed at parents and teachers with apps for children. Thanks for aggregating everything, Apple!

Trusting kids to be their own internet filter
As we learned from the story about kids in LA hacking their iPads, censoring the internet or technology functionality sometimes doesn’t work. A school in Connecticut is advocating to teach kids how to use the internet better centered around the skills of being a better researcher and getting a better sense of what you can trust out there. The school is letting the kids use sites like YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook to develop and a culture of trust and responsibility.

This makes sense to me because people want to do stuff you say they can’t or shouldn’t do. When you say, “go nuts,” it takes the motivation of mischief away from the honest kids. Also, teaching students to be better internet filters is the new version of learning how to use the library catalog system. It’s where the information is now so the sooner they learn to use it effectively, the better for learning.

Big data series
Yesterday I posted the first of a three part series on big data. I picked this topic to zoom in on because after Demo Day, I learned that Deval Patrick wanted Massachusetts to be a big data center. It applies to the classroom because it’s helping paint a better picture of a student’s learning to drive better teaching.  If you are curious about the topic or like terrible Photoshop, then this is a blog post for you.
