Why new technologies could never replace great teaching

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching | ELT - Teaching and Learning with Technology | Scoop.it
Technology in education gets plenty of hype, but let's not forget the importance of teaching and learning, says Pamela Wright
Vinicius Silva's insight:

"Good teachers inspire our young people to be lifelong learners, creating a culture of independent enquiry with their enthusiasm and passion."Do you think technology itself is able to do that? Technology is a tool to enhance learning and the teachers' role is to facilitate learning takes place inside and outside the classroom.

Eight Roles of an Effective Online Teacher | Faculty Focus

Eight Roles of an Effective Online Teacher | Faculty Focus | ELT - Teaching and Learning with Technology | Scoop.it
Teaching face-to-face and teaching online are both teaching, but they are qualitatively different.

 

Teaching face-to-face and teaching online are both teaching, but they are qualitatively different. In comparison, driving a car and riding a motorcycle are both forms of transportation, but they have enough differences to warrant additional training and preparation when switching from one to the other. The same is true when faculty move from the traditional classroom to the online classroom. There are some things that the two have in common, but there are also plenty of differences. With this in mind, consider the following eight roles of an effective online teacher.

Most of these roles will be familiar to any who teach online.  All it takes is one new idea to improve your practice. Do any of these ideas suprise you?

Lara N. Madden's curator insight, June 3, 2013 12:56 PM

For those of you venturing into online teaching. Good read.

How ELT needs to stop misusing computers and start opening access and minds
Vinicius Silva's insight:

Great article by Nik Peachy.  Thinking that the use of technology in the EFL/ESL classroom alone will enhance students’ learning and make our classes more dynamic is a big mistake. It is high time we started rethinking our teaching practices, approaches and methodologies to cope with the demands of a digital society and, specially, the net-generation.

How Your Emotions Affect Your Student's Learning

How Your Emotions Affect Your Student's Learning | ELT - Teaching and Learning with Technology | Scoop.it

"Twenty-five sets of wary eyes are gazing at you. The air in the room is thick with tension, and the owners of the twenty-five pair of eyes are shifting in their seats. Fifty legs become restless and the squeaks of tennis shoes and flats rubbing against the linoleum floor get louder and louder.

Is it time for a big test? Was the classroom scolded? Is it the last day of school, perhaps? No, it is none of the above. They are reacting to the anxiety and negative emotions that you brought into the classroom."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 3, 2013 10:09 PM

Have you considered how your emotions may impact your students? This post explores this issue, specifically how your emotions may affect your student's learning. 

The post begins with the limbic system, a system that helps us "to communicate, bond, and respond to stimuli." Many factors may impact the limbic system, including stress, and this may shut the system down.

The discussion continues as the post explores how your bad day may impact your students, and also provides suggestions on what you can do to "help keep from spreading those emotional germs."

It is the rare teacher that does not experience a bad day at least once a year...and the suggestions in this post may help alleviate some of the issues that arise from such a day.

What Are MOOCs Anyway and Should You Consider Moocing? | Educational Technology and Change Journal

"If we can get past the magic of “massive” and “free,” we begin to see Coursera/edX-type MOOCs for what they really are — online courses, no different from the ones your college or university is offering right now. Open up registration to anyone anywhere, don’t charge a fee, and you’re MOOCing."

Teaching Respect and Responsibility — Even to Digital Natives | MindShift | ELT - Teaching and Learning with Technology | Scoop.it

While the basic tenets of digital citizenship attempt to protect kids from cyberbullying, misconduct, and harassment, Allen is also interested in teaching the positive behaviors that will make successful students and workers for the future: teaching students how to find and analyze reliable sources for research, how to verify whether information is biased and/or credible, and how to be a responsible user.
