10 Simple Tips For Better Teaching With Tablets - Teachers With Apps | ESL | Scoop.it

"Teachers can’t escape the growing trend of technology in the classroom.  It’s more than just hype.  More schools are buying tablets for use in the classroom, with Apple’s tablet sales to the education sector doubling last year.

 

As a mobile software company whose product is used extensively in education, we dream big about the future of technology in the classroom.  We have worked with numerous great teachers who have successfully leveraged tablets to improve the learning experience for students.

 

Are you tempted to join the trend?  Here are ten tips for introducing tablets into your classroom."

101 Ways For Teachers To Be More Creative - TeachThought

101 Ways For Teachers To Be More Creative - TeachThought | ESL | Scoop.it

Creativity isn’t always something that just happens. It can take quite a bit of work to nurture, grow, and develop creativity, even for those who are immersed in creative and dynamic fields.

For educators, it can be even more of a challenge to inspire creativity in students or embrace your own creativity while trying to juggle academic requirements, testing, and other issues in the classroom. It may be difficult but it’s certainly not impossible, and accomplishing it can help to create a classroom environment that’s more motivational, interesting, and educational for both you and your students.

So how do you get there? Here are some tips that can help you get creative in the classroom in a variety of ways.

These texts can be downloaded and are aimed at varying literacy levels. The topics are broad and can be used to promote critical thinking. In an ELT context they could be used to form the basis of discussions. The text worksheets also contain questions to encourage reflection and debate.

Some useful quizzes here for students to select and work on at their own pace. And of course plenty of other resources from BBC Learning English. This activity could be a step taken further, that is, students could be encouraged to create their own quizzes on paper for use in class, or have the teacher deliver them via a tool such as Socrative. Naturally the latter will depend on whether learners are digitally orientated and whether they have good access to devices and a stable connection.
