29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit

29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit | Teaching English from A to Z | Scoop.it

"

At TeachThought, we often provide lists of digital resources, and many of them are apps.

 

Apps for struggling readers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/50-popular-ipad-apps-for-struggling-readers-writers/

 

Apps for struggling writers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/41-resources-tools-and-apps-to-improve-writing-skills/

 

Apps for project-based learning. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/10-apps-for-more-organized-project-based-learning/

 

Any while many of these apps are for students, the following list of apps from Sam Gliksman can be considered for both teachers and students, and an excellent foundation slew of apps for any 21st century teacher. From GoodReader and Slide Shark to Printopia and Air Display, all fill different niches of 21st century learning, and the many possibilities the iPad affords."

Blended learning in English Language Teaching: Course Design and Implementation

Blended learning is an area of ELT that continues to be of interest to practitioners in the field. Despite this, little can be found in the literature on blended learning course design or detailed descriptions provided of blends used in ELT contexts. This publication, which contains twenty case studies from around the world, addresses this deficit by illustrating blends being employed on EAP, ESP, Teacher Development and general EFL courses.

Adrianna Kowalska's insight:

For new teachers (like me) and these more experienced who constantly feel the need to develop their ELT knowledge.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, April 13, 2013 10:33 AM

Very proud to have written one of the case studies (pages 65 -75) for this book. It explores the award winning Blended Learning in ELT teacher training course I designed for Bell Educational Services.

Carmenne Kalyaniwala-Thapliyal's curator insight, April 13, 2013 12:46 PM

Thanks to Nik Peachey

John McDermott Neill's curator insight, April 14, 2013 11:38 PM

Interesting and informative read. For me Nik Peachy's section is the most useful and is a must read for any DOS thinking of implementing Blended Learning.

Shaping the Way We Teach English is a fantastic resource that I came across recently. The resource is similar to other online courses from colleges and universities. It's free and accessible through The Online Language Center of the University of Oregon and it is a pretty complete teacher training course that has videos , viewing tasks, transcripts, observation checklists and even recommended supplementary web based reading.

Teacher issues - I chose this resource because it discusses a variety of strategies to implement during and English lesson that even includes technology.  I hope to share this resource with other English teachers to give them more ideas on how to get their students more engaged and involved in their lessons as they will add variety to their instructional strategies.
