Utilizar las Nuevas Tecnologías en la escuela de forma responsable.

Luis Ocampo's curator insight, April 28, 1:44 AM
There are adavantages and disadvantages of implementing technology in the classroom. One of these advantages is that we can find countless resources for enhacing the learning process and making our lessons more fun and effective. However, technology can also be a distraction if the teacher does not know how to implement it in the correct way.

Using Open Digital Badges On Moodle

Using Open Digital Badges On Moodle | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
One of the best ways to encourage learner progress or course completion and to add value to your course is to provide some way of certifying that an individual has legitimately pass the course. Certificates, diplomas, etc. are all ways to do this, but in today’s digital world, digital badges are a great option that people can use to verify and display their skills and knowledge.

The Mozilla Foundation developed an open standard for badges, called (surprise!) Open Badges, that provides a way for schools (and businesses and others) to create credentials to that individuals can use to demonstrate what they know or are qualified for.

Open badges have been a part of Moodle (via Totara) since 2012.

Nellie Deutsch of Moodle For Teachers has created a brief video that demonstrates how open badges work.

Deep Grammar - Grammar checker

Deep Grammar - Grammar checker | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

We all make mistakes when we write, and it would be nice if a computer could help us see the ones that spell checkers miss. Grammar checking is hard because language is squishy, so you can’t just write down the rules and check that they are followed. This lack of regularity is why grammar checkers have always been so poor.
