iPad Scotland Final Evaluation Report

iPad Scotland Final Evaluation Report | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it

Personal ‘ownership’ of the device is seen as the single most important factor for successful use of this technology:
− This is seen as the critical element:
in increasing student levels of motivation, interest and engagement;
in promoting greater student autonomy and self-efficacy;
in encouraging students to take more responsibility for their own learning.
− Evidence suggests that greater personal ownership of the iPad may also contribute to more interdisciplinary activity.

Blended Learning Booklets for Teachers

Blended Learning Booklets for Teachers | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it

They have produced a nice page that answers some common blended learning questions, gives exemplars, and provides four excellent booklets on blended learning techniques. We thought that the booklets were excellent at describing and helping with some of the key challenges to blended learning. Definitely worth a read through if you are using blended learning techniques, or if it is something that your school is looking to do in the future.

Jim Lerman's curator insight, December 21, 2012 2:19 AM

With all the attention paid to PBL, MOOCs, and Flipped Classrooms, the idea of Blended Learning can easily get lost in the shuffle. Yet, this strategy remains very important, particularly for those educators committed to maximizing the efficacy of a face-to-face environment.

Susan Gingras Fitzell's curator insight, December 27, 2012 11:21 AM

I will never be an advocate of total digital learning. We need balance and humans need personal interaction. Relationship with a "teacher" is statistically proven to increase achievement. This article on Blended Learning provides some much needed insights.

8 Research Findings Supporting the Benefits of Gamification in Education | Emerging Education Technology

8 Research Findings Supporting the Benefits of Gamification in Education | Emerging Education Technology | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it
Of course, the “gamification” of educational generally refers to the idea of incorporating gaming elements in instruction and instructional tools, such as the use of digital badges in an online learning application. But with findings such as those below indicating that game playing can enhance the learning process, it is logical to assume that the use of gaming mechanics and concepts in educational tools and processes can also yield benefits. Naturally, it is left to the reader to draw their own conclusions after perusing this content and the original published sources cited.
