A holiday gift of sorts from me to you: linky goodness from the past few months. Enjoy!
Books, Reading, etc.
- I so want to try this at work! BPL now has personalized RA via email.
- Ever wonder what is required reading in another country? Wonder no more.
- They’ve got him, babe: The Sonny Bono Memorial Archive Collection of post-1923 books.
- How to teach [previously] spoon-fed students to really read. Important for anyone teaching incoming students.
- Tis the season to spend gift cards. But also, maybe, add this extension to find books at your local library?
- How to teach your students (or children) to spot fake news. And remember, you may be as much to blame for it as social media is! (ps – teens really are worried about privacy)
- Ask your teachers: can algorithms be biased? The ACLU thinks so. You can also check out the Data Harm Record.
- A Must Read: Framing failure as a necessary educational experience.
- So cool: PBS has archived The Newshour (and all previous iterations)
- An incredibly powerful site, the virtual Victims of Communism Memorial (think Stalin and the Ukraine famine) should be part of your curated website lists.
- While some of the tools that students in this Harvard course use to stay organized are course-specific, some intrigue me and might work for my team. Which? Asana, Vizia, Quip, Slido and VideoNot.Es,
- Read Kris Shaffer’s two-part series on digital minimism (and how to delete your old tweets). I’ll be thinking about this a lot over the next few weeks.
- Speaking of Twitter, here’s a tool that can help you find that tweet you know someone sent, but forget when (or they tweet so much you’ll never find it again without help!)
- Are you a GAFE school? Worried about privacy? Try these platforms to take back some of yours.
