If Class Dojo reintroduces the concept of rewards within an ICT environment, Classcraft improves it by turning the classroom into a sci-fi/fantasy role-play scenario. Extremely interesting to investigate!!

Five-Minute Film Festival: The Basics of Blended Learning

Five-Minute Film Festival: The Basics of Blended Learning | Instructional strategies for ELLs | Scoop.it

"The dictionary definition of blended learning (sometimes called hybrid learning) is so broad, it sometimes feels like nearly every modern classroom could fit under that umbrella. But the key to understanding blended learning is that it's not about the technology; it's about transforming instructional design to maximize teacher time, to better utilize digital resources, and to build a community of engaged learners of all stripes. To help you navigate the meaning and the potential of blended learning, I've gathered a playlist of videos and resources to explore on the topic."

32 Habits That Make Thinkers - te@chthought

32 Habits That Make Thinkers - te@chthought | Instructional strategies for ELLs | Scoop.it

"The difference between students and learners is something we’ve discussed before. On the surface it’s a matter of tone and compliance, but it also has to do with purpose–why are they learning? How much of themselves are invested in the process? And does it lead to personal change, or mere performance?

So below are 32 habits–or strategies, actions, or behaviors–that can lead to that critical shift that moves students from mere students to learners who are able to think critically for themselves. Key themes? Patience, scale, and perspective."
