Un discorso… coeso

< ?xml version="1.0"?>

Non sempre i nostri alunni conoscono il significato di testo coeso. 

Un testo scritto non deve essere solo completo e compatto, ma anche coeso, cioè unitario e tenuto insieme da legami linguistici. Quando un testo è coeso il discorso fila liscio senza salti.

Per ottenere un buon testo è necessario utilizzare in modo appropriato le concordanze grammaticali, i connettivi e i sinonimi.

Le concordanze grammaticali prevedono accordi di genere, di numero e di tempi verbali. 

Attenzione pertanto al piano temporale e a collocare le azioni nel tempo corretto.

The Learning Journey: Microsoft is a Leader in Education


The Global Forum – Miami is a unique opportunity for education and school leaders, policymakers, top industry experts and also Microsoft partners to discuss the key transformations in Education across K-12 and Higher Education and how Microsoft can support those goals.


Dr Cathy Cavanaugh Head of Teaching & Learning, Microsoft Worldwide Education delivered the keynote address on the opening day. Dr Cavanaugh explained that 

The learning journey consists of three steps that involve technology: 

  • THINK (Digital Ink – thinking scaffolds, and inking is a way of processing that is happening in highly visual ways)
  • EXPRESS (OneNote and Sway - express where they stand in their conceptual understanding
  • COLLABORATE & RECORD (Office Mix, OneNote - students work together and their learning is captured)

Think

The 21st Century Learning Design framework states information is growing exponentially and the meaning of ‘knowing’ has shifted from being able to consume, remember and reproduce information to one where learners actively construct understanding to create knowledge that is new and usable to them.Visit the author's original post

Microsoft Innovative Expert Educators Program 2015

It is a great honour to be on this journey again! I look forward to learning from all the expert educators! I enjoy using technology in education and always think about what ticks for my students. For example, while I am conducting my lessons, if students were to ask me what a stick insect looked like, because we might be going through a passage that mentioned it, I would quickly use the Internet to show them what the insect looks like in the real world.… Visit the author's original post

Blog Post: Discover What Can Happen in an Hour of Code, December 8-14

In a world powered by technological innovation, one would think that today’s student is inundated with curriculum that opens doors to computer science—one of the fastest-growing job sectors.

Mark Sparvell, Showcase Schools Program Leader:

What was your personal favorite memory as a student?

Easy! I remember my Kindergarten teacher, Miss Elizabeth McQuade, took a real interest in me as a ”reader” and gave me access to her personal library of children’s books in her office. I had a chance to skip the reading schemes and tackle real books. I remember literally forcing myself to learn to read while reading the original Tarzan series. I can remember the covers even today.… Visit the author's original post

Our Year Abroad

EK4 jobbar på med sitt projekt "Our Year Abroad". NU har nästan alla fått kontakt med de skolor de har valt. Eleverna låtsas vara utbytesstudenter i ett engelskspråkigt land under ett år. Familjen de bor hos är fiktiv, en medelsvensson i Nya Zealand, Kanada, Irland, Kenya, Malta etc. men skolan och alltid annat är autentiskt. Det är så kul att höra när någon kommer och strålar och berättar att man har suttit mitt i natten och skypat med Nya Zealand. Lättast har det varit att få kontakt med andra Microsoft Mentor skolor.Visit the author's original post
