The report lists four elements constituting connected learning’s emphasis on bridging school, popular culture, home, and the community to create an environment in which students engage in and take responsibility for their learning.

This report focuses on school-age learners, but the emphasis on deeper learning skills, such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking is definitely applicable to professional development.

The Pointlessness of Unplugging

The Pointlessness of Unplugging | english lessons | Scoop.it

If it takes unplugging to learn how better to live plugged in, so be it. But let’s not mistake such experiments in asceticism for a sustainable way of life. For most of us, the modern world is full of gadgets and electronics, and we’d do better to reflect on how we can live there than to pretend we can live elsewhere.

Nice article which underlines how technology is now integrated with our lives.

RossanaPiccini's curator insight, March 24, 2014 2:04 PM

It's more often than not that I come across someone who shuns modern technology for a day or two in pursuit of some sort of "purification". What are they really talking about and why? This article begins to explore some of the issues underlying our reborn fear of technology.

Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC

Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | english lessons | Scoop.it

In this research paper Graham Hall and Guy Cook explore teacher attitudes to own-language use in the classroom. They conducted a global survey and interviews with practising teachers.
They found evidence of widespread own-language use within ELT, and suggest that teachers’ attitudes towards own-language use, and their classroom practices, are more complex than usually acknowledged. The findings also suggest that there is a potential gap between mainstream ELT literature and teachers’ practices on the ground.
