Introduction to Tagging: Effective Searching of Online Resources

  1. 1. Introduction to Tagging:Effective Searching of Online ResourcesSLC Camp Chicago 2012 1
  2. 2. Agenda• What is tagging, and how does it help me as an educator?• What is the process of tagging?• What does it look like in action? 2
  3. 3. Who is in the room? 3
  4. 4. About 33,400,400 results (0.25 seconds) 47,300,600 results 4
  5. 5. The Problems are Time Alignment Rigor 5
  6. 6. What is the Solution?Common Core State LRMI Tagging Standards 6
  7. 7. Why Common Core State Standards? QcUE 7
  8. 8. Common Core of State Standards English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science &Technical Subjects AND Mathematics standards• Are aligned with college and work expectations;• Are clear, understandable and consistent;• Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills;• Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards;• Are informed by other top performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society; and• Are evidence-based. 8
  9. 9. English Language Arts/Literacy Focus• A focus on results rather than means• An integrated model of literacy• Research and media skills that are blended throughout• Shared responsibility for students’ literacy development 9
  10. 10. Mathematics Focus• Standards for K-8 and High School• Standards are focused, coherent, and rigorous• Rigor means that instruction should include a balance between conceptual understanding, skill and procedural fluency, and application• The 8 Mathematical Practices, part of the CCSS, should be taught and measured 10
  11. 11. Turn and Talk • What learning have you engaged in with the Common Core? • How have you been working with the Common Core State Standards in your current position? 11
  12. 12. Why the CCSS will make a difference? •Defines proficiency consistently across states •Simplifies teacher preparation through a common instructional target •Provides opportunities for collaboration across states Dr. Jaime Aquino Deputy Superintendent for LA Unified 12
  13. 13. What is the Solution?Common Core State LRMI Tagging Standards 13
  14. 14. Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI) • Metadata: a card in a card catalog – Provides a common language • Use in classroom • Standards alignment • Other – Enables us to filter and search online resources 14
  15. 15. Teachers search for resources for their students • Need to find a resource • Open search engine Before After Keyword Targeted search: search, evaluate, keyw CCSS.Math.Content.8.N S.A (identify numbers that ord are not rational), online search, evaluate, keyw video, 10 minutes, ord PARCC search, evaluate…… 15
  16. 16. What is the Solution?Common Core State LRMI Tagging Standards 16
  17. 17. LRMI Tagging OverviewGeneral Education AlignmentThe Title page The Educational The standards Use 17
  18. 18. “LRMI Tagging Overview” • Read carefully • Annotate the document * Think is critical + Makes sense ? Unclear to you 18
  19. 19. Let’s Practice • -text-brainstorming • Fill in shaded boxes on your LRMI Tagging: Practice and Application 1. Topic 2. End User 3. Age Range 4. Educational Use 5. Interactivity Type 6. Learning Resource Type 7. Alignment Type 19
  20. 20. Turn and Talk• First, share your ideas for the tagging of this video. – What were the similarities? – What were the differences? 20
  21. 21. Example #1 (Video) “Analyzing Texts: Brainstorm Before Writing” “The Title Page” English General 1) teacher commentary, annotation, textbook, strategy Teaching Channel Teaching Channel 2) Teacher, Student “The Educational Use” 3) 10-12 Education 4) cooperative learning, reading, discussion/debate 5) Active 6) Activity, Discussion Webpage 5 minutes, 33 secondsAlignment Standards” Common Core State Standards “The 7) Teaches CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.5.1 21 CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.5.1
  22. 22. Adding in the Common Core Alignment • • Aids in identifying standards- aligned content electronically – Dot NotationEnglish Language Arts/ MathematicsLiteracyCCSS.ELA- CCSS.Literacy.RL.2.1 Math.Content.6.EE.A.1 22
  23. 23. Calibrating• Allows us to clarify language and process• Does not imply that consensus is mandatory.• We will calibrate a Math example and an ELA example – Independent • Everyone tries to tag the item – Collaborate in like content • Stand up and Find someone who did the same content • Share your thoughts on the item tagging 23
  24. 24. Thinking about the Process – Find a different partner to discuss the process of tagging • What was intuitive? • What was a challenge? How did you solve it? 24
