PD Roadblocks: Control, Compliance, and Permission.

PD Roadblocks: Control, Compliance, and Permission. | digital technologies for teaching (languages) | Scoop.it

There are two factors that seem to be holding many educators from this self-directed collaboration. First, it requires a minimal amount of digital literacy in order to connect and explore, and collaborate. This seems to be lacking for many educators, as well as a resistance to learn the literacy. Ironically, educators are supposed to include digital literacy in their curriculum for their students to be better prepared.

eBook: How Gamification Reshapes Learning | digital technologies for teaching (languages) | 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.
