The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom

The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom | English Teaching profession | Scoop.it

" ... I have been concerned, though, by some of the ways that I see technology being used. Technology should not just allow us to do things in a more engaging way; it should allow us to do new things that we thought were not possible. It is those new things that are the real value technology provides.  It is not enough to USE technology. You must use it well. ..."

Literacy Journal: The Silent Classroom: 12 Tools for Loud Silence

Literacy Journal: The Silent Classroom: 12 Tools for Loud Silence | English Teaching profession | Scoop.it

" ... Nonetheless, there are tools for digital communication that lend themselves to classroom use in a loud silence sort of way. That is to say, they require more than passive clicking through options, they can be monitored in some way to guarantee involvement by individual students, and multiple digital voices are heard in each conversation (or else, why use any tool?). In addition, each of these tools encourages thought and reflection before a student responds.

Here are my top 10 picks, in reverse order, with suggestions for using each sensibly in the ELA classroom."
