Blended Learning: 10 Trends

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | English teaching scoop | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

As I was looking through my Scoop.it listings I came across this blended learning option shared by Dennis T OConner.  I like how the infographic addresses learning styles, student centered approaches and newer education trends like gamification.

Top 5 Reasons You’re Not a Good Writer

Top 5 Reasons You’re Not a Good Writer | English teaching scoop | Scoop.it

If you find writing difficult, you’re not alone. Most people struggle with writing, even many of the best writers. Writing uses different parts of the brain than speaking, and so even if your speaking skills rival President Obama’s, you might find writing very difficult. Unfortunately, so many people believe they’ll never be a good writer, so what’s the point in trying.

 

However, this attitude could actually be hurting your career.

Rainbow Bridges EFL Materials's curator insight, November 26, 2013 10:11 PM

Have you tried freewriting with pictures? In this project, ungraded writing and freedom of expression increased desire to write as well as writing skills. EFL students can connect art and writing at the phonic, word, or sentence level before getting into writing paragraphs.

How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful

How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful | English teaching scoop | Scoop.it
Project-based learning continues to be misinterpreted as a single teaching strategy rather than as a set of design principles that allow us to introduce the philosophy of inquiry into education in an intelligent and grounded way. It’s time to not only address the flaws in PBL, but to reinvent it in a way that leads to deeper learning, creative inquiry, and a better fit with a collaborative world in which doing and knowing are one thing.
