ELT Blog Carnival - Pronunciation

ELT Blog Carnival - Pronunciation | ELTECH | Scoop.it

When I volunteered to host this month's ELT blog carnival I was eager to get teachers everywhere to pitch in and help out with this tricky subject. Below you'll find an array of blogs on the topic of pronunciation. I hope that they help you feel more confident, as they have helped me grow as a teacher.

The Classroom and the Cloud: A Bright Forecast for 2020

The Classroom and the Cloud: A Bright Forecast for 2020 | ELTECH | Scoop.it

Nevertheless, excellent teaching remains at the heart of student success. It is imperative that educators continue to explore and experiment with new technologies -- and share best practices -- to support positive learning outcomes and successfully propel students in 2020 and beyond.

Mauricio Martinez's insight:

Some teachers still think of technology as "the future of classrooms", however, these innovations are already playing an important role in education. As the article says, "It's not about technology; it's about sharing knowledge and information, communicating efficiently, building learning communities and creating a culture of professionalism in schools.".

Interesting article though most of what it describes is already possible. Also not much mention of augmented reality, which I think will become increasingly important.

They can also embed visual support for language learners such as text and images and even write over the video as though it were a whiteboard.

We continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice' | ELTECH | Scoop.it

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models. Most of the world’s curriculum and assessment systems are based around fact recall rather than actually demonstrating that you have learned something and can deploy it within a problem-solving situation.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives™ 's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.

Creating Games for Journalism

Creating Games for Journalism | ELTECH | Scoop.it

Games mock realities that, at their best, can make players feel an emotion more powerfully than any other medium. You are the on-screen actor, and you control the game's plot through your actions. Having control means you're responsible, within obvious bounds, for what happens in the game, so achievements, failures, consequences and the emotions those come with, belong to you.

History has some terrifying answers on what people can do collectively when locked into a set idea of "knowledge."
