Seven Ways to Increase Student Engagement in the Classroom

Lee Hall's curator insight, September 12, 2014 3:52 PM

I plan to use the 3-2-1 method in my very next class. Great ideas.

Great graphic that summarizes things we've all heard before, but helps keep them in mind so we really do utilize them with students.

Empathy As Your Starting Point for Great eLearning Design | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"This year, let's resolve to become more empathetic eLearning designers. We can resolve to stop churning out cookie-cutter courses, and instead, create learning material that is truly inspiring. We can resolve to stop talking down to our learners, and instead, reach out and connect with them. We can resolve to stop being aloof, and instead, show more empathy."

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

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, 2014 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.

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"In any given classroom, there are invariably learners who simply don’t connect with what’s being taught. Lectures can be easy to tune out. A textbook can feel dense and boring to finish. Even a video can pose limitations for learners with sight or hearing difficulties. When these are the only options available, some learners are bound to fall behind without requesting special support, while others will surge ahead. Differentiation is one way to bridge this gap, and another is adapting the curriculum to suit all learners, instead of adjusting it to support the needs of each one."

Education Reform: Pedagogy First, Technology Second

Education Reform: Pedagogy First, Technology Second | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"Pedagogy is the driver, technology the accelerator.” This popular thought has been making the rounds on social media, instilling the importance of “pedagogy first, technology second.” This kind of thinking speaks volumes to educators for many reasons. Technology is often branded ‘disruptive’, a term justly despised by many. After all, what educator wants disruption? By placing the emphasis on ‘disruptive’ technology, over pedagogy, we’re making the wrong argument for education reform. For an educator, changing pedagogical method is not as easy as many would like to believe. Changing method with ‘disruptive’ technology? Forget about it. What we should be looking at is rather the pedagogy behind the technology… the purpose behind the tools."
