Technology-Rich Learning:The Basics of Blended Instruction

Technology-Rich Learning:The Basics of Blended Instruction | Integrating Technology in the ESL Classroom | Scoop.it

Even though many of us don't have technology-rich classrooms, the rapidly evolving education landscape increasingly requires us to incorporate technology to customize student learning. Blended learning, with its mix of technology and traditional face-to-face instruction, is a great approach.

"It's crucial for students to see that the work they do in the online space drives the work they do in the classroom so they recognize the value of the online conversations."

PeopleWorks’ SaaS based application and software solutions with its cloud based platform offers mobility and ease of use, and can be accessed by employees anywhere and at any time. This helps businesses reduce turnaround time and save costs.

Tech Tools for Teachers

Tech Tools for Teachers | Integrating Technology in the ESL Classroom | Scoop.it

Some of you may be working in a technology-rich environment where you have interactive whiteboards and students have access to the internet in the classroom, or a computer lab that you can take students to. Some of you may only have a single computer in your classroom or, perhaps, like the majority of schools around the world, you may have no computer access in school at all. Whichever is the case, this series will still have something to offer you and will enable you to offer something more to your students, either in class or through the development of more motivating homework tasks that students can access outside of school.

NIce set of tools organised by topic and annotated to help teachers get started.

Lyndsay's curator insight, April 3, 2013 10:29 PM

This resources is extremely valuable for educators when teaching digital technologies. It allows students to learn how to design and implement  visual programs, use a range of digital systems and use safe online communications (ACARA, 2013). It provides many explanations surrounding many available digital technologies for the classroom which is titled 'Tech Tools for Teachers' and would allow educators to effectively implement digital technologies into their planning.

I think the best audio recorder is 'Audacity'. Yes, there's a learning curve, not much of one, and the options it gives pretty amazing to say that it's free!
