Hi Kimberly! Thanks for thumbs up!
Also we ask teachers to fill a survey that could help us to improve. Maybe you could find a few minutes to fill it yourself and pass to other teachers who use it? Thanks!

Quote - "As an ESL teacher, I witness a handful of student essays each semester that have been run through some kind of translator. I think every language teacher will agree when I say that yes, we can always tell. Often, hefty portions of the text are just incomprehensible."

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: 5 Things Learners Expect From Their Educators

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: 5 Things Learners Expect From Their Educators | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Quoted from post:

More and more in recent years, we've started referring to the kids in our classes as "learners" rather than "students." It began unintentionally but became more and more frequent. We gradually realized that the relationship between learner and educator is not always the same as between student and teacher.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 20, 2013 9:31 PM

Do you think of the children in your class as learners or students? Do you think of yourself as a teacher or an educator? And how do you define these words: learner, student, teacher, educator. This post explores how the word learner differs from the word student. One statement in the post "The word "learner" suggests an open-mindedness and a self-initiation. The word "student," however, implies a hierarchy. It defines a status, where one is the instructor and the other is the pupil."

If we view our classroom as individuals whom are learners then what is the role of the educator? The five ideas listed below are explored:

* Expertise
* Clearly delineated goals

* Mentorship

* Feedback

* Deftness with necessary tools

The first post in this series (of two) explored '5 Things Students Expect from their Teacher'  was scooped here). This post continues the dialogue and may provide you with some new insights into how you view yourself in your classroom this year...food for though.
