6 Ways To Support Students Without Internet Access At Home - TeachThought

6 Ways To Support Students Without Internet Access At Home - TeachThought | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

"While some students enjoy unlimited access to the Internet and other digital technology, there are other students, just as capable and full of potential, who struggle to learn even the basics of computer use due to a lack of access. Our world heavily relies on Internet technology for everyday communication, education, and work. Over time, students without Internet access will face massive disadvantages, including:

    *Lack of basic research skills

    *Lack of networking skills

    *Inability or extreme difficulty in pursuing a degree in higher ed

    *Difficulty searching and applying for jobs

    *Insufficient qualifications for many jobs"

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.
