21st Century Learning w Lisa Damour – 3-10-16

Our guest on today’s show is Lisa Damour, pyschologist, author, and director of the Laurel School’s Center for Research on Girls

TTT#374 New Youth Voices Connections: Shantanu Saha, Karen Fasimpaur, Jo Paraiso, Jake Jacobs, Paul Allison, Chris Sloan 12.4.13

On this episode of TTT six teachers get together to consider how they might get students more deeply connected on Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net.

Paul Allison http://youthvoices.net/ndss#courses and Chris Sloan http://youthvoices.net/Judge#sloan host:

for this conversation

Here are some of the questions we’ve been asking recently:

What if students were encouraged to create projects for each other? What’s the difference between writing a “Discussion Post” and creating a “Wiki” page on a social network like Youth Voices? How might we consider connecting students more often in spaces like Skype or Hangouts? What would it take to build a “Youth Voices Live” space for young people? How can we engage students in deeper, meaning making in their conversations with each other?

TTT #288 Looking at the embedded literacies: InstaGrok and Readitfor.me w/ Lisa Parisi, Steve Cunningham, Kirill Kireyev 3.14.12

We want to introduce you to the founders of http://InstaGrok.com and http://Readitfor.me on this episode of +Teachers Teaching Teachers.

The cores of both of these services have theories of action that emphasize literacy as we know it now. Both founders think that your students might find their services useful for learning, reading, doing research, managing information, and knowing the world.

We think you’ll enjoy this conversation with +Kirill Kireyev and +Steve Cunningham.

Learn more about their online services that are being made available for free to schools. See if there might be a place for them in your work with students. Test your theories of literacy in 2012 next to those embedded in these new learning tools What search tools do you think might enable your students to engage in “safe and personalized learning?” (InstaGrok) What tools do you think might help your students to “understand and actually put the big ideas to work?” (Readitfor.me).

Teachers Teaching Teachers #173 – EBSCO, BrainyFlix, Online Research, and More! – 10.21.09

Ron Burns from EBSCO joined us on this podcast as we continued the conversation about using databases for research, how to share research using Diigo and how to incorporate the EBSCO resources into these goals! Being big EBSCO fans, we always welcome any chance to learn more about upcoming changes and how to better use EBSCO.

We are happy that Joyce Valenza joined us in the chat room, since she started us on this question of how to use a social bookmarking site like Diigo with a library database like EBSCO. (Find out what she found noisome!)

Also joining us on this podcast was Jack Yu who creates his own brand of meaningful fun at BrainyFlix.

Teachers Teaching Teachers #169 – More about diigo, annotations and on-line, ongoing research – 9.23.09

Chief Diigo Ambassador, Maggie Tsai joined us on this Wednesday evening, late in September. About a month before, we had a lively conversation about research and diigo: Teachers Teaching Teachers #165 – 08.26.09 – Meet Lisa Dick and George Haines: Talking about research and diigo.

We wanted to talk to Maggie because some of the teachers who use Youth Voices had begun to use Diigo, and we wanted to get together on this webcast to talk about how it is going, and what our plans with students are with this bookmarking site. Please enjoy, and add a comment about how you build your students’ research muscles, and how you use diigo. And tune in to future episodes of Teachers Teaching Teachers. This thread of I-Search, on-going research, Diigo, social bookmarking, and use of library databases promises to be a rich vein of inquiry for us this year.

Teachers Teaching Teachers #166 – 09.02.09 – Minding the gap between library databases and social bookmarking – EBSCO and diigo

Susan Ettenheim begins this podcast by wondering if bookmarking and databases can go together. This question came from a recent webcast (TTT 165) when Joyce Valenza started an inquiry into a division she is beginning to see in her school. She has noticed that those students who have been introduced to social bookmarking in delicious and diigo are becoming less likely to use the library databases.

Like many of us, these students hesitate to use a source for their research that they are not able to comment on and get responses from members of their personal learning networks. Part of the value or a source comes from the on-line conversations that get attached to that source, and bookmarking sources found in a library or specialized database seems to be impossible. Links are not persistent and the resources remain behind a password. We agree with Joyce that we want students to be able to do both: use the rich material in library databases and learn how much knowledge comes from bookmarking in social networks.

(Joyce Valenza, by the way, will be on The Future of Education with Frandes Jacobson Harris and Howard Rheingold and hour before our show this Wednesday, September 30. Tune in to that show, then join us at EdTechTalk at 9:00pm Eastern / 6:00pm Pacific USA / World Times. Our guests will be Troy Hicks, author of the new Heinemann title, The Digital Writing Workshop, and four teachers as they discuss how they foster student choice and inquiry in their writing classrooms.)

For this podcast, Susan Ettenheim invited Ron Burns, Director of Software Product Management at EBSCO to answer the question of whether or not bookmarking and databases go together. He begins his conversation by pointing out that Diigo is part of their "Bookmark" bar on the EBSCOhost interface, but many more issues arise as Susan is joined by five amazing teachers, tech integrators and media specialists/librarians: Alice Barr, Vicki Davis, Madeline Brownstone, Suzanne Hamilton and Carolyn Stanley

Here are few of the specialized/state databases that are discussed on this podcast:

Please stay tuned to Teachers Teaching Teachers. On TTT 169 (webcast on 09.23.09, and to be uploaded soon) Joyce Valenza and Chief Diigo Ambassador, Maggie Tsai joined us to further the dialogue. More to come!
