Warmers and fillers for the online classroom - EnglishUp

Warmers and fillers for the online classroom - EnglishUp | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

The online classroom can at times seem like a very cold space and building a supportive and friendly environment for students while getting a clear idea of their capabilities can be quite challenging. Having some zero preparation activities up your sleeve to get students speaking can be a real benefit.

Using the webcam to engage with online students | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

Studying online can be a very solitary process and it’s this feeling of isolation that is most often attributed to the high rate of student drop-outs in online courses. As an online teacher, this makes quickly building a good relationship with your students all the more vital.

Having worked on many elearning and mlearning materials development projects I can safely say that I know what a huge task it is, even when working with experienced teams, to produce really good quality, well designed, interactive digital content and that’s why it is such a surprise to see Paul Emmerson’s new BEhereBEthere Business English site.

Can MOOCs help democratize access to education?

Can MOOCs help democratize access to education? | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

Despite many prophecies that massive open online courses (MOOCs) would be a democratizing force in education, providing global access to top-quality education at low cost to providers, and at no cost to the learner, the reality is somewhat less glorious. It is true that many MOOCs are taught by world-class professors, that they have attracted learners from all over the world, and that they have been offered free to participants. However, MOOCs are costly and time-consuming to produce, most participants are already well-educated, and only around 5% of registrants actually complete their courses.

Down to earth article about the effectiveness of MOOCs

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, October 1, 8:35 AM

"MOOCs may be an effective learning mechanism for highly motivated, self-directed learners who have strong reading skills and high bandwidth internet access.  Short or “modularized” MOOCs may provide a cost-effective way for corporations to offer ongoing, just-in-time training for employees.  However, for the less motivated but perhaps more typical learner, negligible instructor-student interaction in MOOCs and limited opportunities for constructive peer-to-peer engagement present a challenge.  Improving access to learning opportunities for most individuals requires more than simply making the materials available. It is also necessary to help them select learning experiences that fit with their incoming level of preparation, interests, and goals for education, and to offer sustained guidance and support throughout the learning experience."Fiona Hollands, Ph.D., Teachers College, Columbia University.

Practical English Usage - The App!

Practical English Usage - The App! | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

Practical English Usage by Michael Swan was one of the first books I ever bought when I started learning to teach. It's one of the few that I still keep on my shelf and probably the one that I have most often consulted, especially in those early years as a classroom teacher when I was having to field constant grammar questions from my enthusiastic students - who I suspected knew much more about the rules of grammar than I did.

Technology allows me to assess my students in ways that simply was not possible formerly. I can see at the tap of a screen or a click of a button what level each student has attained and I can then plan accordingly. Differentiated instruction really becomes achievable with such technology, not only in the level of tasks set, but in the way in which students can tackle their work.
