Just a few short years ago, the world of digital scholarly texts was in its primordial stages, and it is still the case that most online editions are simply basic HTML or scanned images from more or less arbitrarily chosen print editions.

Teachers all over America are faced with this challenge of keeping students engaged in the classroom when their world outside of school is one of constant engagement and stimulation. Knowing the world outside of our institutional walls is only one step in addressing modern learning styles. How to act and adjust schools today is the next step in making the classroom of today ready for tomorrow.

HG Académie de Rennes's curator insight, February 9, 10:50 PM

Un logiciel en ligne pour monter, raconter des histoires en 7 moments clés maximum. Pour chacun de ces moments, vous pouvez intégrer une image ou une vidéo et un texte de 140 caractères maximum. Les contraintes éditoriales sont intéressantes pour forcer les élèves à organiser, à structurer leur récit ou leur reportage. On pourra ainsi leur demander de raconter un évènement historique en trois moment clés : une situation initiale, un évènement perturbateur et une situation finale. A tester !

grosses limites : la nécessité d'avoir un compte par élève + réduit en nombre de caractères par page et nécessitant de charger des images

Un système gratuit et très visuel. Plutôt sympa.

Taylor Wilton's curator insight, March 10, 3:24 PM

What a brilliant resource for learning and teaching!  Teachers can simply create a quiz with the content of their choice (dependent of the focus learning area).  Teachers can choose the type of video and image to act as a visual aide on the quiz through a 'drag and drop' creator tool.   Once the quiz has been created, it is ready to be implemented in the classroom.  Teachers can project the quiz on the overhead project/interact whiteboard if it is a whole class activity quiz, where students can answer with the press of a button on individual devices (ipads, phones, laptops).    This interactive tool can be used to enhance students' critical and creative thinking skills, where they must think for themselves and assess the content provided.   Teachers can create a quiz that focuses on Sustainability, where students can learn in a safe learning environment, through game-based learning.

Channylt's curator insight, March 31, 7:09 AM

Kahoot! is a game-based pedagogy delivered online via mobile technologies to make learning at any level interactive and engaging for both the learner and educators. This is of interest to my work as we are always looking for technology that engages students in their learning in an interesting and easily accessible way.

Thoreauback's curator insight, April 9, 10:14 AM

WOW! I use freewrites in my face-to-face class because I don't believe a person can write without thinking. Yet, the document students are writing about is always distinct from the free write. In LMS discussion boards the situation is the same.

 

Do you remember how annotations use to appear in the margins of really good books? This is the same. The two-pane interface puts the document right in front of the student and lets them attach their comments to specific paragraphs, pictures or videos.  How perfect is that?

 

I want to try this for a quarter.

Mary Clark's curator insight, April 11, 11:02 AM

While much of this can be done in Google docs, there are several features which can extend the conversation.  Teachers do need to share documents via email.

Blended #Learning in English Language Teaching: Course Design and Implementation

Blended learning is an area of ELT that continues to be of interest to practitioners in the field. Despite this, little can be found in the literature on blended learning course design or detailed descriptions provided of blends used in ELT contexts. This publication, which contains twenty case studies from around the world, addresses this deficit by illustrating blends being employed on EAP, ESP, Teacher Development and general EFL courses.

 

Nik Peachey's insight:

Very proud to have written one of the case studies (pages 65 -75) for this book. It explores the award winning Blended Learning in ELT teacher training course I designed for Bell Educational Services.
