Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media

Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media | ELT Matters | Scoop.it
In Teaching Crowds, Dron and Anderson introduce a new model for understanding and exploiting the pedagogical potential of Web-based technologies, one that rests on connections — on networks and collectives — rather than on separations. Recognizing that online learning both demands and affords new models of teaching and learning, the authors show how learners can engage with social media platforms to create an unbounded field of emergent connections. These connections empower learners, allowing them to draw from one another’s expertise to formulate and fulfill their own educational goals. In an increasingly networked world, developing such skills will, they argue, better prepare students to become self-directed, lifelong learners.

In my lifetime, I can't imagine what it's like not to work with a team or a committee or workgroup. We are taught to accept the team model to help us gain new perspectives which can help with innovation.

Some Pros and Cons of iPads for ELT

Some Pros and Cons of iPads for ELT | ELT Matters | Scoop.it

From a quick comparison of these two lists it may well look like the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages, but those disadvantages are BIG, especially the cost. If you are thinking of introducing iPads in your school, then I think by far the best way to start is just by having a few in the teachers’ staff room and letting the teachers explore them and see what they can do with them. If this can generate some enthusiasm then you could be on your way to having a 21st century language school.
