Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development

Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals is of vital importance, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way we use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

Among a raft of new initiatives, integrated learning is to be enthusiastically embraced as a highly efficient means of increasing exposure to foreign languages while adding to, rather than subtracting from, other curriculum areas: it really is great value for money.

The Backchannel: Giving Every Student a Voice in the Blended Mobile Classroom

The Backchannel: Giving Every Student a Voice in the Blended Mobile Classroom | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

A backchannel -- a digital conversation that runs concurrently with a face-to-face activity -- provides students with an outlet to engage in conversation. Every time I think about this tool, I remember my student, Charlie (not his real name). Given his learning challenges, he struggled to keep up during class discussions. Long after his classmates grasped a concept, he would light up in acknowledgement and then become crestfallen as he had no way to share his revelation. Charlie needed an alternative means to participate, and a backchannel would have provided him with that outlet.

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

"Project based learning is a teaching learning methodology that has been widely praised for its efficacy in enhancing learning achievements.The premise underlying PBL revolves around  getting students engaged in authentic learning events through the integration of mini-projects in class. These projects can be as short as one day and as long as a year. However, there is a difference between mere projects and project based learning. This table from Teachbytes provides a great illustration of the nuances between the two concepts."

Excellent table reminding about the difference between projects and project based learning. Projects are too easily assigned as exercises to students, without paying attention to the issues on the right hand side of this table.
