Practical English Usage - The App!

Practical English Usage - The App! | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Practical English Usage by Michael Swan was one of the first books I ever bought when I started learning to teach. It's one of the few that I still keep on my shelf and probably the one that I have most often consulted, especially in those early years as a classroom teacher when I was having to field constant grammar questions from my enthusiastic students - who I suspected knew much more about the rules of grammar than I did.

These days I tend to use Martin Parrot's wonderful Grammar for English Language Teachers as my first port of call, but this app is a very handy tool and Nik Peachey has some nice ideas for how to use it in the classroom.

So Why Learn English: A personal view from Brazil | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

In the last 2 years I have interviewed over 100 candidates in Brazil, all of which were in English because no other language unites an international company like ours. Only 40% of these candidates were fluent in English and the rest didn’t even make it past the 1st round even though they had excellent experience.

Arjun Rajagopalan's comment, December 24, 10:50 PM
No question at all, we have come a long way from having Powerpoint as the king of the heap of presentation software. The variety of options on offer, and the range of capabilities are wide, diverse and individually tailored to the needs of presenters. The day of one-package-does-it-all is over. Microsoft themselves seem to have realised it and ar pitching Sway as the successor to Powerpoint. Interesting times ahead.

"Wiki Summarizer could be a good tool for students who are just starting a research assignment and are not quite sure what terms to use or what topics to explore. By using the Wiki Summarizer web view or word cloud view students will be able to find some terms and topics that could help them alter and or direct their searches. In other words, Wiki Summarizer could help students who have a very broad research topic narrow down their searches."

Critical Digital Literacy Explained for Teachers

Critical Digital Literacy Explained for Teachers | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Critical digital literacy is one of the essential required competencies for the 21st century educator. In an era of unprecedented personal publishing, infobesity (information obesity) becomes a real issue. Teachers need to be able to critically  assess and evaluate the materials and knowledge they come across. This could be done through adopting a critical thinking lens to filter things that could otherwise unconsciously affect one's stance and interpretation of  a given meaning.

Juliet Hinrichsen and Antony Coombs from University of Greenwich developed this excellent framework to help you understand the concept of critical digital literacy. This framework is made up of 5 dimensions:

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, December 12, 12:14 PM

About five years ago, I worked with a large suburban school on developing awareness and teaching/learning skill sets in the area of critical literacy. The nuances of digital and even print text within structure and conventions suggests meaning that extends far beyond the alphabetic word. This framework would have been a helpful tool to ground discussion and build understanding.

Practical Tools for Teaching News Literacy ~ NY Times

Practical Tools for Teaching News Literacy ~ NY Times | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

How One School Teaches It

"Using an approach acquired from the Center for News Literacy at Stony Brook University, and after training at the center’s summer institutes, the principal and staff at Intermediate School 303, a New York City public middle school in Coney Island, Brooklyn, implemented a program to encourage students to become smarter readers and analysts.

"In its curriculum, the school stresses concepts like the need to evaluate information and sources. Each week the sixth, seventh and eighth graders at I.S. 303 study the concepts and learn how to apply them to current stories in the news.

"Sometimes they use free educational media materials like these, created and distributed for classroom use by Stony Brook and often featuring journalists and reporting from The New York Times.

"The lessons are then shared more broadly throughout E.L.A., Social Studies and other courses — as well as at home with parents, siblings and friends."
