What Teachers Want More than New Technologies? PD Opportunities To Learn to Use them Effectively - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | digital teaching English As a Second Language | Scoop.it

Without professional development that can give teachers the full practical knowledge on the use of technology, you will not see technology being successfully integrated in the classrooms for better learning.

I'm hearing you! A common problem with introducing new ideas or technologies. There is always a need for professional learning to help teachers feel comfortable with what is new.

The e-textbook transformation

The e-textbook transformation | digital teaching English As a Second Language | Scoop.it

A new wave of e-textbooks is giving students more than just words and a few hotlinks on a digital page. Publishers over the last few years have been adding video, interactive maps and gamified quizzes designed to engage students more deeply in their learning.

A transformation which is not a revolution. It will take time and effort.  It's important we give it the space to take its natural course.

Angela C. Dowd's curator insight, July 25, 2014 2:11 PM

Thank you Nik. I like reading about innovations like e-textbook transformation that make learning more accessible to all students.

Raj Shekhar Mishra's curator insight, March 20, 2015 3:07 AM

To engage students more deeply in their learning publishers are making the textbook a hands-on activity by adding video, interactive maps and gamified quizzes.  The goal is not simply to replace traditional textbooks with e-books but to fundamentally change teaching and learning .The best learning strategy is the multi-modal approach—you can hear it, you can see it, you can manipulate and interact with the content.

Hi Amadeu For me they are similar but different. EtherPads are useful to use for quick collaborative work and the ease of not having to get students to register etc is a real bonus (I've had nightmares with Google products, especially with international groups or while traveling abroad). I get student to use them like 'scrap paper' and then afterwards they can shift their text for final publishing. I also REALLY like the time slider as you can see how the students constructed the text.
