On recommendation from Mrs. Akin, we have tried this app and love it! You can create custom quizzes and download class data, much like you can with a CPS system. Check it out and see how you like it! There are quizzes already created by other teachers that you can try or you can create your own.

5 Excellent iPad Apps Students Can Use for Taking Audio Notes ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Computer and Web Assisted Language Learning | Scoop.it

"There are times when taking a note in a written format is not a practical option. You might for instance be attending a lecture or a conference or you might simply prefer to listen to your recorded notes instead of reading them, in these cases apps such as the ones below are what you will use for audio note taking. While keeping the basic note taking features, all of these apps are fantastic for recording notes and adding audio to your notes. I invite you to check out the selection I have below and share with us what you thin about it."

Is technology a silver bullet for language teaching and learning?

Is technology a silver bullet for language teaching and learning? | Computer and Web Assisted Language Learning | Scoop.it

Whereas using tech may have once meant a weekly trip to a computer lab, it can now involve anything, from Facebook and Twitter to podcasts and videos in the classroom. The question is: should teachers try to evolve their teaching to fit with the latest gadgets, or should they stick to their old ways?

If the teacher does not know the technology, he/she can't apply the pedagogy ... Technology is great to teach languages, I think a great software adapted to individual needs will substitute the teacher of languages in near future..

8 Practical Tools to Easily Gather Student Feeback ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Computer and Web Assisted Language Learning | Scoop.it

"Students feedback can sometimes host a treasure trove of new insights not only about their own comprehension but also about our teaching. Giving students the opportunity to share their own response on the learning taking place in the classroom is highly beneficial to them particularly in the way they position themselves vis a vis the content being taught. They also feel empowered because they know their voice does matter and therefore become more engaged and involved in the learning/teaching process."

As far as technology itself and education is concerned, technology is basically neutral. It’s like a hammer. The hammer doesn’t care whether you use it to build a house or whether on torture, using it to crush somebody’s skull, the hammer can do either.
