    What are the key questions you believe anyone should ask or consider when selecting learning resources?

    This is a Learning Map that I worked on with a colleague;http://goo.gl/NfAVFB; we wanted to get teachers to reflect on their lesson planning by using these questions and then to eventually consider how and why they might integrate a tech tool into the learning.

      There are some great questions on there to help with the planning process 🙂 I’m guessing you use the questions in each stage to help you to select learning activities and therefore resources? Great stuff!

      Yes, a colleague and I ran a workshop recently at school on creating high impact, tech integrated instruction environments and as part of that we felt it was necessary to get teachers to think about their learning outcomes at every stage of a lesson. This is a link to our workshop material if anyone would like to see it https://tackk.com/highimpactech

    Some questions I ask:
    Does it have currency?
    Will the students be able to relate to the content?
    Is it engaging?
    Are there opportunities here for higher order thinking?
    What is its purpose in the learning journey?
    Is there the technology (etc.) readily available to support the resource?
    Is it accessible by all students?
    Can I find something even better than what I used last time?
    Is this a good opportunity for us all to try something new?

    If a topic permits I do ask students to find some relevant material too and that guarantees that they will bring in something they are interested in and want to learn more about.

    One of the biggest questions that I think often gets missed is:
    *Is there a potential for this resource to be a trigger for any of my learners with a trauma background?

    Good point @markeetarp; a good resource can lend itself to so much in-depth exploration and as Teachers we need to be aware of what impact that resource may have on students.
