Student knowledge construction is what happens when students go beyond just reproducing what they have learned, but generate their own ideas and demonstrate understanding of what makes the information unique. The skills of knowledge construction range from inferring to analysis to interpretation to synthesis and evaluation. Many of these skills may also be considered "critical thinking." While teaching these skills can be a challenge, finding useful web resources can be simple. Peruse this collection to find resources to use in your lessons for all grade levels to encourage student knowledge construction.

tag(s): critical thinking (104), problem solving (218)

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session is from May 2022. You can register and immediately view the archive of the session.

When using projects for alternative assessment and feedback, you'll find that students can express themselves more creatively when given tools to share what they have learned. Come to this session to learn about three tools students can use to work with images for their projects. We'll discuss digital citizenship expectations and explore tools that allow students to responsibly repurpose digital resources. You might even find a tool that is useful for your own purposes when creating learning objects! As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Understand the tenets of copyright and digital citizenship that apply to remixing and reusing images. 2. Explore three tools and how each can be used to alter and change images; and 3. Plan for the introduction of creative image tools in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

tag(s): copyright (43), Creating Media (3), digital citizenship (78), images (247), professional development (286)

Crack the code to understand the components of structured literacy using the three printable documents found at the Ladder of Reading & Writing. The first two-page document provides an overview of the progression of structured literacy skills. The second linked document shares a primer on structured literacy terms more about structured literacy. The third document shares information and an infographic demonstrating the interconnectedness of structured literacy's multiple components. Print and use any documents found on this site; however, they may not be changed or modified.

tag(s): literacy (96), professional development (286), reading strategies (67), science of reading (16), writing (283)

What is the Science of Reading? Learn the fundamentals and history behind reading research and educational application with the three handbooks found on this site. Each user-friendly guide provides readers with background knowledge and educational applications using images, graphs, and relatable stories. Handbooks one and two are primers in reading research, while the third handbook focuses on making the shift to teaching in classrooms based upon the science of reading. In addition to the three printable directories, additional resources include links to articles, podcasts, and activities that support understanding how we learn to read.

tag(s): phonics (46), professional development (286), reading comprehension (127), reading strategies (67), science of reading (16), vocabulary (232), vocabulary development (86), word study (52)

In the Classroom

Download and save the handbooks shared on this site for professional development and understanding of the science of reading. Share with peers to use PD activities. Consider breaking the guides into smaller portions to begin your in-depth study of this topic and as you reflect upon your current teaching strategies. The third handbook that focuses on classroom instruction is beneficial for use as a reflective and ongoing learning opportunity. Add the questions to ask, found in the third handbook, to a curation tool such as Wakelet, reviewed here, then add teaching resources to your Wakelet collection. For example, one question is, "Are vocabulary words preselected and connected to the topic and text?' " Create a Wakelet collection that includes strategies for teaching how to understand vocabulary words within the context of the passage read. Include online tools such as Read Ahead, reviewed here. Read Ahead uses AI technology to create presentations of online text that present vocabulary lists of the text and provide definitions in context while students read.

Using digital storytelling in the classroom doesn't have to be complicated! Start your first digital storytelling project in just a few easy steps and learn to use this strategy to support and engage students, enhance your instructional cycle, and showcase your students' knowledge construction skills as they connect to the real world. Learn to use digital storytelling as a formative or summative assessment that includes 21st Century Skill practice. As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Develop an understanding of the digital storytelling process; 2. Understand multiple ways digital storytelling can be used in the classroom; and 3. Learn about tools that can be used to implement the digital storytelling cycle. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
