A model to consider, if you have a higher ed instution in the vicinity and replace freshman students with K12 ones. I like how the authors further classified the tutors into 3 categories:

The primary focus of using infographics is not to teach them how to create, but rather to interpret
dataTeach students not to fear numbers, and how to read it.Before we create, make sure we know how to read critically infographics
What are Infographics? Definition:
- they’re the merging of art and information on charts to highlight specific bits of information.
- Portmanteau of Information + Graphic
Data Sources: where do you get your data from?
From the library dbases:
From the Internet:
US CensusStatistical Ready Reference (Data Planet)
Tools: Piktochart, Infogr.am, Easel.ly
What do you want to achieve?
1.Learn about statistics resources at the library
2.Be aware of the ramifications of bad data.
High school policy is turning from banning mobile devices at school to acceptance of students’ mobile devices and integrating them into the learning process: BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
How is higher ed addressing/integrating such evolution?

Subject: [BLEND-ONLINE] Synchronous solutions..
I am leading a project group that is looking into a synchronous solution for student to students and faculty to student interactions. We recently started to use Canvas for our LMS and slowly moving away from Bb. Many of the faculty were using Wimba for synchronous classes and moments. Now faculty and students are using a combination of Big Blue Button, Webex, Skype and Google hangouts. We are trying to find a single solution for this. Can anyone let me know what they are using at their school for synchronous classes or moments, student group work and virtual office hours. Thanks so much for your time…

VideoNotes (http://www.videonot.es/) is a free web tool that allows students to take notes on a video they are watching. The notes are synchronized with the video being watched. The good thing about VideoNotes is that it is integrated into Google Drive which means that students will be able to save their notes directly to their Drive account and access, edit, and work on them anytime they want. All the notes are time-stamped.
