Teaching Foreign Languages: A video library of classroom practices

Teaching Foreign Languages:  A video library of classroom practices | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"The Teaching Foreign Languages K-12 video library and professional development guide bring to life the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century. Illustrating effective instruction and assessment strategies, the series documents 27 teachers and their students in K-12 classrooms around the country as they study eight languages across a range of competency levels.

Here are some examples of what you'll see:

Third-graders learn about the seasons and German holidays as they practice basic reading skills and build cultural knowledge in their German class.Eighth-graders explore a traditional Cajun folktale and then try their hand at playing zydeco music in their French class.Tenth-, eleventh-, and twelfth-graders in a multilevel Japanese class create a travel brochure and promotional video to attract visitors to Japan.Twelfth-grade students of Spanish become Latin American artists and debate whether to exhibit their work in Spain in light of that country's visa requirements.

Lively and provocative, these videos are designed to inspire thoughtful discussion and reflection and provide the opportunity to learn from the successful practices of other teachers."

Harry Potter Book Project in Edmodo: A Collaborative Initiative Between Students from Egypt and Canada by Ayat Tawel | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

[excerpt]: "With an increasing acceptance of children using internet for academic purposes, comes apprehension pertaining to their safety and well-being when online. While as educators we want children to become more « net savvy », we need to temper this with precautions to keep them safe on the web. 

 

This session will demonstrate how educators Ayat Tawel and Bernadette Rego successfully established using Edmodo, a free Learning management system, as a place for students from Canada and Egypt to meet and discuss questions enhancing their reading skills using the popular book « Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone ». We will demonstrate how Edmodo and other web 2.0 tools can be used to protect the students' online identity and communication while creating an enriching learning atmosphere."

Driving Question: How does technology change the game in project-based learning?

Via JackieGerstein Ed.D.
sarspri's insight:

A great, short article that exemplifies how purposeful, real-world projects are supported by tech (rather than driven by tech).

 

The author, Suzie Boss, also co-wrote a book for ISTE on Reinventing Project-Based Learning: Your Field Guide to Real-World Projects in the Digital Age. Check out the blog for updates, resources, and a link to the book:

Promoting Writing Proficiency in the World Language Classroom - Calico Spanish

Promoting Writing Proficiency in the World Language Classroom - Calico Spanish | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"During Thursday night’s session of #langchat, participants discussed various interactive ways to develop students’ world language writing skills. The discussion topics included ways to include all types of writing from creative writing to analysis and discussion. By using various methods such as online tools, group discussion and word games, teachers are encouraging and incorporating imaginative thought."

(Im)Material girls living in (im)material worlds: Identity curation through time and space | NWP Digital Is | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"NWP is proud to be a supporter of Global Conversations in Literacy Research, a free and open-access series of webinars with literacy researchers world-wide.

 

The Digital Is community might be particularly interested in the next webinar, January 20 at 3:00 p.m. ET, with Julia Davies from the University of Sheffield. Julia's presentation draws on a project looking at the role of Facebook in the lives of a group of fashion conscious trainee hairdressers living in a city in the north of England. 

 

The research has an ethnographic texture; Dr. Davies, shared in the young women’s Facebook spaces and took part in their conversations. Facebook was the lens through which she viewed their lives and through which she traced interactions and events."

sarspri's insight:

The National Writing Project (NWP) is a fine bunch of folks, documenting all kinds of ways to express oneself (both teachers and students) via text and in combination with other digital modes of expression and communication.

"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.”

Intéressant croisement entre des niveaux d'intégration des TIC (technology integration) par les enseignants (entry, adoption ... transformation, un peu inspiré d'ACOT et d'autres) et des composantes de dispositifs pédagogiques (activités, interactions, productions et buts ... il faudra que j'adapte avec mon modèle pédagogique )  de quoi mieux comprendre "où j'en suis dans mon dispositif" et "vers où le développer". A adapter pour l'enseignement supérier ?

LearningLab's curator insight, January 14, 2013 7:32 AM

Le modèle serait à adapter pour le supérieur, mais il propose des pistes intéressantes.

Shona Whyte's curator insight, January 14, 2013 11:43 PM

Not sure about "correctly," but the grid is worth looking at for relevant factors in technology integration in the classroom.  The comments to this blog post include links to other grids and rubrics.

The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom

The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

" ... I have been concerned, though, by some of the ways that I see technology being used. Technology should not just allow us to do things in a more engaging way; it should allow us to do new things that we thought were not possible. It is those new things that are the real value technology provides.  It is not enough to USE technology. You must use it well. ..."
