Teaching and learning vocabulary: implications from acquisition research

Teaching and learning vocabulary: implications from acquisition research | Everything | Scoop.it

To me, these findings support an intermediate position between the “let it all hang out” of strongly communicative approaches, for example, and the “drill and kill” of more closely teacher-controlled methods such as grammar-translation.  To learn new words, some kind of grunt work is required, but it needs to come from their learners rather than imposed top-down by teachers. And it needs to be done intelligently.

The rate of attrition is no better in Canada and Alberta where teachers are well paid relatively speaking. The use of part-time contracts and the promotion of people who are not leaders has hurt.

The Most Important Reasons To Avoid Educational Technology

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, November 26, 2014 9:24 AM

I suspect Mr. Campbell is being deliberately provocative in his call for avoiding technology. In reading his post, I think he is really asking for a rational response to educational technology. In workshop after presentation after workshop I have said and heard said that technology is only one of many possible resources that can be used in a classroom and that technology, as with any resource, should be used with intention. In other words, stop scraping your knees scrambling on the bandwagon.


Infrastructure is paramount. Equity is important. Having a plan for data security and data management is, without question, one of the most important first steps. And just because everyone else seems to be doing "it"--whatever the technological "it" might be, whether BYOD or buying tablets or charging headlong into some nifty new technology squirrel fad, doesn't mean "it" is right for your classroom(s), your school(s), your district. Having a PLAN and a vision for how technology might be integrated in your classroom(s) is the most important "it" for technology. And having some sense of how that plan might evolve as technology races through its evolutionary process is even more important. Do whatever it is that makes sense for you and your students, but do it well.
