Apptivities for Business English | The Round

Apptivities for Business English | The Round | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "This eBook looks at apps for business English students. First, it introduces important distinctions (native vs web-based; free vs pay for; apps for different operating systems). Then, it presents a selected number of apps chosen by the authors in the following categories: language skills (speaking / writing / listening / reading); language (grammar / vocabulary / pronunciation) and finally, business.

 

Each app is described briefly; then, ideas for using the app in the classroom with students are provided, followed by ideas for students to use the app autonomously, using their smartphone and / or tablet."

Lots of simple classroom and self-study activity ideas to engage learners and exploit their attachment to their mobile devices for learning purposes.

Learner Autonomy and New Learning Environments - [Oct 2011, special issue] Language Learning & Technology

Learner Autonomy and New Learning Environments - [Oct 2011, special issue] Language Learning & Technology | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

[Excerpt from special issue commentary]:  "The areas of autonomy and technology in language education have a potentially very close but in practice often also uneasy relationship. [...]  Technology has the potential to not only provide access to resources for learning in a superficial sense, but also to offer increased affordances for autonomous learning. Opportunities for interaction, situated learning, and support for learning outside formal contexts, have greatly improved because of technology. These affordances are not yet always capitalized on"

"Check out "The Challenge of Assessing Project-Based Learning" to hear why school leaders think we're heading in a smarter direction when it comes to assessment.

 

As one principal told me, "We pay attention to what we measure. If we can shift the measurement so that students are better prepared and more engaged learners, then let’s do it.”
