UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Reading in the mobile era

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Reading in the mobile era | EdTech for ELT | Scoop.it

UNESCO is currently investigating how access to text can be improved through the use of technology, specifically basic mobile phones. Today mobile phones are common in areas where books are scarce. The United Nations estimates that 6 billion people have access to a connected mobile device of some sort, while only 4.5 billion have access to a toilet.

Creative Educator - Five Habits of Great Coaches | EdTech for ELT | Scoop.it
Coaches do not spend most of their time lecturing or even “front-loading.” Coaches give players opportunities to practice and apply skills in a contextually appropriate situation, providing just-in-time feedback, asking targeted and specific questions, clarifying what is happening, and providing information relevant to what is happening at specific moments.

This is a fairly basic list of ideas, but could be useful for an initial "checklist". For most of them, there will be associated research and when using "tips" it's always good to be critical and search for other points of view. “Be sure to build in tasks that generate peer-to-peer interaction and sharing; those where participants create something their peers can use and benefit from tend to be most successful" - good point, which has several underlying theoretical principles to back it up.

Possibilities and Challenges for ICT-enabled Learning in India | EdTech for ELT | Scoop.it

With India being one of the giant users of ICTs, people are now looking at using ICTs for education and skills development. ICT-enabled education has emerged to be the most viable solution not only due to its availability at a cost effective rate, but also due to the fact that an overwhelming proportion of knowledge-seeking youth and adults are born and socialized in the e-culture.

Shaken, Not Stirred - DRINKING IN ENGLISH | EdTech for ELT | Scoop.it

Yes, folks, drinking is a necessary and often enjoyable fact of life. But beware, the verb drink only means to intake some form of liquid into your body, so we all drink something everyday. It's basic survival. However, when we talk about drinking, we generally refer to drinking alcoholic beverages. Which brings us to: what is the difference between a drink and a beverage? And how do we talk about drinking in English? It's all in this post...

There has been a dramatic rise in mobile devices crossing back and forth between the school gates, and be it smartphones, tablets, notebooks or laptops, whether they are parent-owned or school-owned, there remains a duty of care that schools must practice.

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher | EdTech for ELT | Scoop.it

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning | EdTech for ELT | Scoop.it

I believe in student-centered learning, and I believe there is huge potential for this kind of learning to occur in online environments. But the instructor is a key element of that learning, and we need to talk more explicitly about what her role is and the specific ways she negotiates and leverages her authority, guidance, and presence to design learning environments in which emergence is possible.

Motivation and cooperative learning are good uses problems arise for people in the evaluation and assessment and that compromises the acceptance of such by potential employers etc. The difficulty is in discerning the difference between collaborative or shared learning as opposed to simple collusion in getting answers which may not entail much,if any learning,other than how to cheat and thus disadvantage genuine learners who have made an effort.Thus making use of others' research to inform your own projects is not the same as claiming others' work as your own...and that is a big selling point for systems like Turnitin and others.
