Lateral Reading: Evaluating Online Information Like a Fact Checker
With changes to the news cycle and information overload, the latest advice from researchers and experts is that educators across the curriculum teach students lateral reading, a method that professional fact checkers use. How exactly do we guide students to read laterally? Go beyond outdated advice about evaluation based on website domains and “about us” pages. Join us as we demonstrate new, practical approaches to evaluating online information that we have developed and practiced with students.

The Power of Provocation with SEESAW!
Go beyond the basics with Seesaw in the K-5 classroom! Seesaw can be especially powerful with inquiry because students can easily navigate the icons to upload digital drawings, audio clips, notes, video, images, and files. Since Seesaw is a digital portfolio, it can capture daily learning and inquiry processes. It makes it super simple to share curiosities formed during provocation exploration. Images and video of learning (in action) are great artifacts of the inquiry journey of your students.

Digital Portfolios: Share Your Learning Story
Through digital portfolios, we can encourage learners to tell personal, rich versions of their learning stories. Tests and points and grades don't tell us a complete version of what our students learn. Let's encourage students to create and curate a more complete version of their learning stories.
