This is a great way to address so many of of the common core standards and build listening and critical thinking skills.

It’s Baltimore, 1999. Hae Min Lee, a popular high-school senior, disappears after school one day. Six weeks later detectives arrest her classmate and ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, for her murder. He says he’s innocent – though he can’t exactly remember what he was doing on that January afternoon. But someone can. A classmate at Woodlawn High School says she knows where Adnan was. The trouble is, she’s nowhere to be found.

Sketchnoting in Education

Sketchnoting, in its purest form, is creating a personal visual story as one is listening to a speaker or reading a text. I also believe the interactive notebook, which includes the process of taking “regular” notes” while listening to a speaker and later creating a sketchnote of the text notes, would also be considered sketchnoting. This page will provide links, ideas, tips,and research evidence dealing with the power of sketchnoting. If you are looking for a book on the topic, the seminal work is this book by Mike Rohde.

TEACHERCAST

TeacherCast Core Beliefs:

It is the mission for TeacherCast to be a conduit for learning at al levels by students and educators of all grade levels and disciplines. We believe that everyone can be a constant, connected learner.

At TeacherCast, content focuses on the “How To” rather than the “What”. It’s easy to ask the question “What app should I use?” and be pointed to a dozen or so apps that do that task. At TeacherCast, we share with our listeners HOW to use that particular piece of content in their classrooms. TeacherCast is not an educational technology website. It’s a website designed to help students learn. The only way we know how to do this is by helping educators learn how to use a particular piece of technology or pedagogy in their classrooms.
