Why Great Teachers Are Also Learners

Why Great Teachers Are Also Learners | English Teaching, Languages and Education Matters | Scoop.it

As a teacher, the most important asset I can teach my students is a love of learning. In my 10 years teaching high school, I have found that making a deliberate and transparent effort to continue my own learning allows me to inspire my students to follow my footsteps.

How to Improve Writing Fluency

Writing fluency is the natural flow and organization of a written work. Fluent pieces of writing are easier and more enjoyable to read as the words are organized in a logical fashion and the overall message of the piece is easy to understand.

Global Digital Citizen – the role of the teacher

Global Digital Citizen – the role of the teacher | English Teaching, Languages and Education Matters | Scoop.it

With the huge potential that Information and communication technology has to offer for teaching and learning also comes a matching potential for distraction, illicit and inappropriate activity and poor judgement. Guidance is often missing in the home environment as the parents lack the depth of knowledge and understanding to provide sound subjective advice, effective monitoring and appropriate modeling. This is not through lack of interest, in most cases, but rather from their limited exposure and experience with this rapidly evolving and changing environment.

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding | English Teaching, Languages and Education Matters | Scoop.it

That learning takes place in a social context is a significant issue. This is why collaboration or ‘cooperative learning’ has become so popular – but it has to be more than social collaboration. Cognitive collaboration needs to be encouraged. As students communicate their ideas, they learn to clarify, refine, and consolidate their thinking. Schoenfeld has said that, ‘Groups are not just a convenient way to accumulate the individual knowledge of their members. They give rise synergistically to insights and solutions that would not come about without them.’

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom | English Teaching, Languages and Education Matters | Scoop.it

Kevin McLaughlin writes a great post sharing: What is Digital Literacy

 

Futurelab, an organisation ‘committed to developing creative and innovative approaches to education, teaching and learning’, gives the following definition in its publication Digital Literacy across the curriculum:

 

To be digitally literate is to have access to a broad range of practices and cultural resources that you are able to apply to digital tools. It is the ability to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively and to understand how and when digital technologies can best be used to support these processes.

Process writing 1 | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC

Writing, even in L1, is not easy particularly when compared with speaking, where reformulations, body language, clues from listeners can do much to compensate for a lack of precision or inaccuracies when communicating messages. Time is also a factor – writing may be relegated to homework tasks as there is often a feeling that writing in class uses up time which can be more usefully spent on other activities.

However, as this workshop aims to show, developing good writing skills is conducive to the development of other language skills including communication skills. The three writing workshops explore how teachers can help their learners to become better writers using a process approach to teaching writing.

How the iPad Is Changing Education | English Teaching, Languages and Education Matters | Scoop.it
The iPad may only be two years old, but it's already begun to change many things. Reading is one of them. Work is another. It is selling like crazy, but it will be some time before most of the people you know own a tablet.
