Shaking up the grammar class!

Shaking up the grammar class! | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Uttering this innocuous-looking sentence is all it takes to turn a class of highly active and enthusiastic students to a group of yawning, mind-wandering kids.There are very few students who get super excited when grammar-teaching time comes along and even fewer who see any reason in doing grammar at all. Grammar is often associated with lists of rules, countless abstract examples and lots of written practice. I truly believe though that there are some very easy and practical steps we can all take to make the presentation and practice of grammar more tangible and fun!

The time has certainly arrived for we educators to start incorporating dictation into the classroom. The technology has certainly reached the crossover stage for general use and a number of free apps (include Voice Typing in Google Docs) exist.

7 Important Questions Before Implementing Digital Portfolios

7 Important Questions Before Implementing Digital Portfolios | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Digital portfolios are something that are really starting to take off in schools. There are different software programs that will make “portfolios” easy to share, yet do we truly embrace the power that a digital portfolio can bring into our schools?
