I am parking a few links here so that I can follow them up later. I find this a good habit rather than bookmarking them and forgetting them ....
- Study Skills - it is interesting to see how other schools implicitly teach Study Skills to their students. I am a believer that the path to success is via good study habits.
- The Forgetting Curve and its implications for training deliver - I am fascinated by how we remember things and how we can teach students to take control of their retention levels.
- What do good readers do poster - I am on a mission from God to improve the reading levels at my school. Looking at some posters to go up in each English Classroom.
- Collection of Google posters for teachers and students - despite having taught with the internet for close to 15 years, our students and teachers still don't grasp the idea of a search engine well enough for my liking.
- What is 'metadata' and should you worry if yours is stored by law? An interesting bru-ha-ha happening in Australia at the moment where incompetent people are running the country. A definition from a business dictionary of metadata.
- National Writing month support via the State Library of Victoria.
- I'm loving Google's Ngram Viewer and the possibilities of using this within the classroom.
- Evolving role of Libraries in the digital age.
- Creating Classrooms we need: 8 ways into inquiry learning
- Use writing activities to bond with students.
- The case for preserving the pleasure of deep reading. Just because students can read SMS messages doesn't mean that they are skilled in deep reading.
- Learning Myth: why I'll never tell my son that he's smart. As a teacher I have seen the damage caused by telling kids that they are gifted.
