Flipping the iPad Enabled Classrom (Part 2 of 2) - EmergingEdTech | Digital Technology for Language Teaching | Scoop.it
"In response to growing interest and inquiries regarding flipping the iPad equipped classroom, I have begun considering the many ways in which the popular tablet’s unique capabilities and myriad applications can play a role in flipped teaching and learning. Last week, in Part 1 of this two part post, we considered the topics of Finding and Creating Digital Learning Content, Delivering & Consuming Learning Content, and Ensuring Content Consumption. This week we continue our exploration by delving into how to use class time, reinforcing learning, assessment, and lastly – tools for organization and productivity (an important consideration in all types of classrooms, not just the ‘flipped’ ones!)."

eBook: How Gamification Reshapes Learning

eBook: How Gamification Reshapes Learning | Digital Technology for Language Teaching | Scoop.it

Dedicated Learning Professionals and Educators across the globe were, until recently, desperately seeking for ways, methods, and techniques to engage employees and students in the learning process. Surprisingly enough, no one would think that games was the answer. After all, games tend to increase learners’ natural desire for competition, goal achievement, and genuine self-expression, while they also promote interactivity, have rules, a quantifiable outcome, and can be colorful, appealing, and extremely realistic.

Educational Leadership:Getting Students to Mastery:Five Musts for Mastery

Educational Leadership:Getting Students to Mastery:Five Musts for Mastery | Digital Technology for Language Teaching | Scoop.it
"Getting students to "mastery" implies that they have mastered a concept, have learned everything there is to know about it, and are ready to move on. This definition of mastery doesn't sit well with me. I've studied topics for years and never "mastered" them. In fact, I earned my master's degree in education more than a decade ago, but I learn how to be a better teacher every day. Each interaction with a student, every conference I attend, and daily conversations with colleagues continually expand my understanding. I can always learn more and explore a topic further."
