Yesterday building Digital Resource Trainers (DRTs) met at West Ridge Elementary to explore the Smarter Balanced Assessment Content Specifications and strategies for supporting teachers and students. DRTs also worked to create a series of Web 2.0 user guides for common apps and web tools. See your building DRT for more support or help getting started.
Our trainer, Denise Phillips, shared a little known feature of Discovery Education — The S.O.S. Blog. The S.O.S. (Spotlight on Strategies) Blog is a teacher created resource with numerous quick and simple teaching strategies to support classroom learning. The blog offers teacher tips, resources, and guides for adding Discovery Education videos, audio clips, images, and digital texts into the classroom.
To access the blog visit http://blog.discoveryeducation.com. Once there select the S.O.S. tab at the top.
This is a great starting place for teachers looking to dive into digital literacy. If you try any of the strategies let us know! I’ll be bookmarking this one for sure!
