The paper brings together the invention strategies introduced in Emig (1971), Elbow (1973, 1981), and Murray’s (1982) work. The paper then discusses briefly Vygotsky’s (1978) concept of ZPD and what it means and adds to invention strategies in the writing class. The last section of this paper will look into the use of computers and networks in the invention stage.

Why Should Techies Care About Education Theory?

Why Should Techies Care About Education Theory? | Education Technology in Trindad and Tobago | Scoop.it

Debates about education are by no means new: What’s the best way to teach? What’s the best way to learn? What should the curriculum be? Who should have access to specialized knowledge and specialized training? How does technology impact all of these questions?

Are kids really motivated by technology?

Are kids really motivated by technology? | Education Technology in Trindad and Tobago | Scoop.it

You can’t motivate students with technology because technology alone isn’t motivating. Worse yet, students are almost always ambivalent toward digital tools. While you may be completely jazzed by the interactive whiteboard in your classroom or the wiki that you just whipped up, your kids could probably care less.

Facebook as a learning tool? A case study on the appropriation of social network sites from mobile phones in developing countries

Facebook as a learning tool? A case study on the appropriation of social network sites from mobile phones in developing countries | Education Technology in Trindad and Tobago | Scoop.it

First, unlike in previous studies, the analysis revealed explicit forms of educational content embedded in informal learning contexts in Facebook. Quizzes, case presentations and associated deliberate (e-)learning practices which are typically found in (more) formal educational settings were identified. Second, from a sociocultural learning perspective, it is shown how the participation in such virtual professional communities across national boundaries permits the announcement and negotiation of occupational status and professional identities.
