Reminder to you as iCoaches!


I have designed these pages, links, videos, and discussion questions for you to "steal" and use as you need in your own trainings and sharing with others. For example, it was so hard and time consuming to find a good video for Google Scholar - several of them sounded like 80 year old librarians with horrible audio.

If you ever create your own Google Site, it's easy to "steal" from my site as well, just ask ;-)

If you ever find better or make your own, please share with me ;-)

Discussion Questions:
  1. With your grade level colleagues discuss:
    1. how this could be useful in your lessons?
    2. how could students use their own personal library?
    3. in what ways can you compare this "virtual" research to that in an actual library with your students?
  2. Select someone to share out the best ideas.

PAUSE, PONDER, PROCESS, PRACTICE(c)
A Classroom Video
Presentation Model

Many teachers show videos in their classroom and I have observed this personally too many times. What I see are typically five to ten minute videos in which the teacher makes a statement and hits play and then tends to other tasks at their desk. During this time some students are watching, sleeping, doing other work, checking their phone, and/or day dreaming.

Explicit direction for video presentations in class should include:
  • sharing the purpose of the video
  • reviewing prior knowledge
  • listing, defining, image/example of new vocabulary
  • outlining tasks to complete before, during, and after video

I recommend that the teacher watches the video and carefully monitor effective "pausing" points, typically two minutes, with a one-two minute "ponder/process" depending upon the task.

We will use this Google Scholar video to model this practice as well as creating a collaborative spreadsheet to capture some tasks.

Open the Google Scholar spreadsheet in Day 3 Activities and in another tab open scholar.google.com
