This is a great little article by Val Swisher. She makes a good point--it sounds like a great class and a great exercise for the kids. I wonder why more classes don't teach this kind of writing early on?

Not Just Generation Text: Using Mobile Broadband in Education | Broadband Census News

An infographic released by the Internet Innovation Alliance on Wednesday highlights the benefits from making broadband internet accessible in educational settings.

 

Entitled “Not Just Generation Text,” the infographic aims to dispel the view that young people use Internet technology solely for social activities such as texting. High-speed broadband internet services can also perform a number of functions to enhance and improve students’ education.

 

Benefits discussed include the use of calendar apps, blended class environments, virtual labs for science classes, sharing and discussion through social networks, and video communication to practice foreign language, and utilization of school issued technology in various educational activities outside of class.

This is a really interesting and insightful Slideshare presentation. It's interesting to see what the digital indicators are worldwide, and the penetration of digital--meaning internet and mobile access--in the world. This is worth a good look!

Learning and Teaching English with the New Media

"Students of the University of Marburg have created a collection of 24 teaching ideeas for the use of the new media in English lessons. The seminar "New Media in Foreign Language Education (2010/11)" was the starting point for the students to work on six topics such as "Learning Vocabulary", "Digital Storytelling" and "Listening Comprehension". All teaching ideas include tasks that can be used right aways, variations for different age groups and hints for a hassle-free use of the tools in class. A great inspiration for English language teachers!"

Some great ideas for using different tools for different language teaching objectives, including brief description of tools, didactic applications, ideas for classroom use, variations and hints.  A very effective format for teacher training also, perhaps useful for novice-expert teacher tandems.
