Proud to be one of the twenty Edmodo Ambassadors of the year!
29 Jul 2015 Comments Off on Spotlight : Edmodo curated library of recommended and created resources.
Spotlight is the global 24/7/365 factory of curated content to be shared , explored and reviewed. Content is the king and Spotlight a realm of inspiration through edshelves of tagged free and paid products.
This Edmodo Content Marketplace allows users to search for renewed , tested and quality content and to provide our best suggestions regarding resources we have either used with students or we are considering starting using them.
For us , teachers, being able to critically evaluate content and share information in such a global scenario is a main aspect of metaliteracy, a key 21st century skill that integrates expertise, effectiveness and professionalism. By providing and receiving feedback , our teaching practices improve.Curation is interest-powered, peer-supported, openly networked and socially connected to guide , mentor , inspire and gather teachers who may or not share common interests.Reviewing products is a multidimensional experience since it requires our skills for giving polite and constructive insights about a production and it is inspiring and informative ,too because quite often we happen to find useful tools, links and resources which were unknown to us .It also requires higher order thinking skills and assumes responsibility towards a network who rely on producers and reviewers to filter information on a specific topic.That is the reason why good descriptive titles and tagging allow good filtering .
Each Spotlight product is goal, skill, subject , theme or Core-Standard oriented which is a time saver aspect for teachers who cannot afford the time of searching for and trying a resource.
As teachers, most of our best practices and resources related to them come from the experience we have had in class. Student voice and performances are indicators of quality and their preferences, learning styles and expectations guide our planning and as such they are co-creators of new learning .Students’ voice and teachers’ thoughts ,ideas and suggestions are taken into account by developers and as a result, the TPCK & SAMR models are frequently seen in practice which redesigns our class management, lesson plans , assessment, and rubrics in a never -ending cycle or ideation, creation , innovation, feedback and improvement.
