New Guide Helps Leaders and Practitioners Improve Instruction for English Language Learners | AIR

New Guide Helps Leaders and Practitioners Improve Instruction for English Language Learners | AIR | 21st Century TESOL Resources | Scoop.it
The need to adequately serve English language learners (ELLs) has never been more pressing, as their numbers increase and their achievement continues to be poor in comparison to their English-proficient peers.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

This Pocket Guide is the first of three developed to help state and local policymakers and practitioners implement ESEA flexibility plans approved by the U.S. Department of Education. The guide's authors reviewed the approved plans to identify policies relevant to ELLs. This can be easily adapted to international academic and cultual standards for English as an International Language.

6 Types of Blended Learning [Infographic] - Edudemic

6 Types of Blended Learning [Infographic] - Edudemic | 21st Century TESOL Resources | Scoop.it
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

Blended Learning is not so much an innovation as it is a natural by-product of the digital domain creeping into physical boundaries. As digital and social media become more and more prevalent in the life of learners, it was only a matter of time before learning became “blended” by necessity.

 

That said, there’s a bit more to Blended and “Hybrid” Learning than throwing in a little digital learning.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

This is a good start but can anyone add more?

 

I utilize English inquiry-based language learning strategies within my learning enviroment.

 

I become aware of the students multiple levels and adjust the vocabulary prior to teaching (i+1) each and every learning session.

 

I use target words and phrases by using the technique of key words, key phrases and key concepts within the framework and scope of the lession.

 

Because of my methods used in the learning enviroment, I fully integrate the P21 inititive with defined rubrics that incorporate vocabulary within the assessment.

 

The students build naturally the vocabulary within the task and scope of the learning enviroment.

 

They will renew, reuse and recycle the vocabulary throughout the course. I am able to achieve this through the inquiry-based language learning approaches within the learning enviroment.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

Education models are turning inside out. First came the concept of the 'flipped classroom' in schools: pupils completing course material ahead of lessons to free up time with their teachers and apply the knowledge they have just learned. Now a related philosophy is developing in higher education. Can we also flip academics – or even academia itself?

Zotero is a powerful, easy-to-use research tool that
helps you gather, organize, and analyze sources and then
share the results of your research.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

Zotero is an easy-to-use yet powerful research tool that helps you gather, organize, and analyze sources (citations, full texts, web pages, images, and other objects), and lets you share the results of your research in a variety of ways.


An extension to the popular open-source web browser Firefox, Zotero includes the best parts of older reference manager software (like EndNote) — the ability to store author, title, and publication fields and to export that information as formatted references—and the best parts of modern software and web applications (like iTunes and del.icio.us), such as the ability to interact, tag, and search in advanced ways. Zotero integrates tightly with online resources; it can sense when users are viewing a book, article, or other object on the web, and—on many major research and library sites—find and automatically save the full reference information for the item in the correct fields.


Since it lives in the web browser, it can effortlessly transmit information to, and receive information from, other web services and applications; since it runs on one’s personal computer, it can also communicate with software running there (such as Microsoft Word). And it can be used offline as well (e.g., on a plane, in an archive without WiFi).

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

2012 was a transformative year in education.   Between the introduction of the MOOC (the ‘Massive Open Online Course’), and the explosive growth in the number of online offerings, all eyes were on higher ed. In the past twelve months, students were increasingly able to learn from leading faculty at elite institutions beyond the four walls of their classrooms, and soon, professors will be collaborating across universities to collectively create and distribute for-credit curriculum for an online semester. 


New high growth players entered the online education marketplace, and universities began to align around interactive platforms.  As online certificate programs became more robust and hyper-targeted towards professional development, more and more students looked to gain these credentials as a differentiator in the work force.
