Is this going to be useful, or just one more form to fill out/beat yourself up over?

In English Digital - 4

"The fourth edition of the magazine for teachers of English in Portuguese speaking countries, with a special focus on Brazil."

 

Shona Whyte:

A digital magazine for EFL/ESL teachers with lots of short articles on different aspects of English teaching and certainly not only relevant to those in Portugal or Brazil.

 

Two articles caught my eye: one by Lynn Wilson on routines for younger learners, with lots of good ideas for classroom management and maximising authentic communication, and another by Fitch O'Connell on autonomous group work in state school language classes, which explains how to implement group work and what the benefits might be.  Adrian Tennant also lets off steam with "Six Acts of Sheep" where he urges teachers not to be seduced by fashionable notions concerning Universal Grammar, four skills, TTT, testing, pre-teaching and authentic materials.

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.
