Free Web Resources on ESOL Teaching

Free Web Resources on ESOL Teaching | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Compiling a list of websites to recommend to ESOL ( English to Speakers of Other Languages ) teachers proves to be way harder than we have initially thought and this is mainly due to the abundance of websites that promote ESOL education and some of them are not really up to standards. After sifting through some piles we came up with the list below.

50 Web 2.0 Tools Every Teacher Should Know About | Edudemic

50 Web 2.0 Tools Every Teacher Should Know About | Edudemic | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

It’s impossible to find the best web 2.0 tools that are perfect for YOUR classroom. Only you know what you’re looking for or need. That’s why I try to share as many cool tools, apps, and trends every day. Today is no exception.

If you’ve been looking for a web 2.0 tool that helps you record audio, edit images, create schedules, or even power your entire school website … you’re in luck. Jane Hart of C4LPT has generously offered up the 50 web 2.0 tools that did NOT make the cut for her ‘best of 2011′ list.

I went through the list and saw many tools loved by Edudemic readers but also plenty of new ones. The entire presentation is worth checking out so I’ve embedded it below. Each contains a link to the specific tool so feel free to use this as a launchpad for new web 2.0 tool discovery. Want to get your favorite tools listed in the 2012 version of this presentation? Don’t forget to vote over at Jane’s site. Enjoy!

Σχολικές Ομάδες eTwinning: διαιρέστε την εργασία και πολλαπλασιάστε την επιτυχία

Σχολικές Ομάδες eTwinning: διαιρέστε την εργασία και πολλαπλασιάστε την επιτυχία | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Tι είναι οι Σχολικές Ομάδες; Οποιαδήποτε ομάδα ατόμων σε ένα σχολείο που εργάζεται για το eTwinning, για παράδειγμα:
• Δύο ή περισσότεροι eTwinning εκπαιδευτικοί στο ίδιο σχολείο που εργάζονται πάνω στο ίδιο έργο.
• Μία ομάδα εκπαιδευτικών που διεξάγουν ξεχωριστά eTwinning έργα και οι οποίοι συνεργάζονται και ανταλλάσσουν ιδέες.
• Μία ομάδα συναδέλφων του ίδιου εγγεγραμμένου στο eTwinning σχολείου, που ο καθένας ασχολείται με μία ή περισσότερες eTwinning δραστηριότητες (έργα, Εκδηλώσεις Εκμάθησης, Ομάδες, Αίθουσες Εκπαιδευτικών) και μοιράζονται την εμπειρία τους.
Πιστεύουμε ότι οι Σχολικές Ομάδες μπορούν να ενισχύσουν την επαγγελματική ανάπτυξη των εκπαιδευτικών και να βοηθήσουν το σχολείο σας να προχωρήσει. Αλλά, ειδικότερα, βελτιώνει το eTwinning και την κοινότητα των εκπαιδευτικών του.
Το eTwinning μπορεί να αποτελέσεί ένα σημαντικό εργαλείο για την εφαρμογή των Σχολικών Ομάδων, που είναι το θέμα μας για το 2012, και γι’αυτό θα το προωθήσουμε όσο μπορούμε περισσότερο, μείνετε συντονισμένοι! Νέα άρθρα, πακέτα και δημοσιεύσεις που καλύπτουν την έννοια των Σχολικών Ομάδων, θα διατεθούν σύντομα.

Troll

Troll | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Στη γλώσσα του Διαδικτύου, η λέξη τρολ ή τρολλ (troll) περιγράφει κάποιον χρήστη του Ίντερνετ με πονηρά προκλητικές, σκόπιμα ανόητες ή επιτηδευμένα εκτός θέματος θέσεις και απόψεις σε μία online ανοιχτή κοινότητα, όπως ένα φόρουμ συζήτησης, ταχυδρομική λίστα, chat room ή μπλογκ, με πρωταρχική πρόθεση να προκαλέσει και να ερεθίσει άλλους χρήστες ή με κάθε τρόπο να επιφέρει διαταραχή σε μια διαδικτυακή συζήτηση για οποιοδήποτε θέμα και να πετύχει μια αλυσίδα αντιδράσεων από άλλους χρήστες. Η συμπεριφορά αυτή πολλές φορές συνοδεύεται από αμφιλεγόμενη διαμάχη των υπολοίπων περί του σκοπού του.

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

It is our role as teachers to help students develop the skills to problem solve independently and collaboratively use 21st-century skills while not relying on technology to do all of the thinking for them. Just because these students are digital natives, does not mean that they do not need guidance to navigate the digital world–both in terms of learning how to discern important and relevant information from a large swath of data, and also to be able to inquire and solve problems that take time, thought, and energy.

6 Ways Principals Can Connect With Students

6 Ways Principals Can Connect With Students | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

As most of you know, that was from my brother and he is referring to my amazing little niece. I do not want her or any other kid seeing their principal in that manner.  This is in no way meant to criticize the current principal or Raine’s school, but it did spark me to think about my time as a school principal and some of the things that were extremely important to me.  ”Fostering Effective Relationships”, in my opinion,  is the most important quality outlined in the Alberta Principal Quality Standard, and those relationships are the basis of a strong and innovative school.

Twitter     Welcome to the aPLaNet (Autonomous 'Personal Learning Networks' for Language Teachers) Self-Access Piloting Webquest   About aPLaNet 

 

In the first year, the aPLaNet team produced guides and resources for language teachers to help them become autonomous users of social networks. The language teachers who are willing to build their Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) are invited to use these resources and help us test the effectiveness of them. The piloting will start on 16 January 2011 and finish on 9 March 2012 and the analysis of the piloting results will help us improve our system and resources.

 

Update: The piloting has been extended until 30.05.2012.

Top 16 Classroom Control and Management Tips

Top 16 Classroom Control and Management Tips | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

One of the daunting challenges that face up newly fledged teachers ( and sometimes experienced ones too) is classroom management issues. Not every teacher is lucky enough to get the wheel turning smoothly right from the start. Disruptive behaviour can pose a real threat to the learning and teaching process and often times it turns a teacher's life into a living nightmare leading , in most cases, to giving up the job as a whole.

How I use social media for my professional development

How I use social media for my professional development | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals, is one that I believe is of vital importance though, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.
