Classroom de Google | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Ricard Garcia's insight:

It's already on!! Worth a look! Maybe not as rich as Moodle, but on the other hand, far simpler for rookies and newbies. Ideal for language teachers who want to manage reading and writing skills and assignments in one single space.

8 Ways Tech Has Completely Rewired Our Brains

8 Ways Tech Has Completely Rewired Our Brains | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Some cognition experts have praised the effects of tech on the brain, lauding its ability to organize our lives and free our minds for deeper thinking. Others fear tech has crippled our attention spans and made us uncreative and impatient when it comes to anything analog.

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Writing used to be strictly an in-school activity. Now, kids do 40 percent of their writing outside of school. Called “life writing,” young adults’ social writing spans texts, tweets, social media, and blogs -- and all of it’s making kids more literate.

Histoire de recadrer les pessismistes et passéistes: l'écriture est plus que jamais vivace!

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, November 1, 2013 4:28 PM

I can't believe kids are doing more than 40% of their writing outside of school. "Life writing" may make grammar teachers cringe, but at least students are engaging with others and sharing ideas in this format.

Catherine Byrd Bushby's curator insight, June 21, 10:13 PM

That's why we need to bring social writing into school.

Using technology in the classroom requires experience and guidance, report finds | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Fresh out of college, few new teachers experiment with new technologies because they have the potential to be disruptive. It’s experience, and the confidence that comes with it, that is allowing teachers in their 40s and 50s to lead the way, according to the report.

There is no such thing as an eTeacher - only good and less good teachers. And some use more digital tools than others.

Most of this we already know, but the data helps clarify for educators the need to look forward and how tech is woven into what we do, how we teach and how we learn.
