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."

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Excellent Resources on BYOD for Teachers

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Excellent Resources on BYOD for Teachers | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

Mobile technology is making explosive growth into our schools and classrooms.There is now a growing trend towards taking advantage of mobile devices to inspire learning and promote students engagement, but the problem is that school districts can not cover the costs of these devices and to provide every student with a gadget would be out of their affordability particularly with the shrinking budgets being allocated for high tech materials.However, several initiatives have been taken to counter this financial block facing the implementation of mobile technology in classroom  and one of these initiatives is called BYOD ( Bring Your Own Device).

Pew Internet: The Best (and Worst) of Mobile Connectivity

"According to a new survey report from the Pew Internet and American Life project, some 85% of American adults own a cell phone, and these mobile devices now play a central role in many aspects of their owners' lives. For many cell owners, their phone is an essential utility that they check frequently, keep close at all times, and would have trouble functioning without."

Thinking about Syncing? iOS Apps for World Language education - Catherine Ousselin

Thinking about Syncing? iOS Apps for World Language education - Catherine Ousselin | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

I have compiled a fairly comprehensive list of Apps designed for Apple products (iPhone, iPod, and iPad). These Apps are helpful for both the learner and the educator. Many are free, some are under $5.00, and a few are major purchases (+$15.00). These lists will all update regularly with your input. Below are links to other experts in the mobile device technology area.

Mentira

Mentira | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

Mentira, a project launched in July 2009, is the first mobile, place-based, augmented reality game explicitly oriented towards the development of language skills in Spanish. It is set in a Spanish-speaking neighborhood in Albuquerque, NM and plays out much like a historical novel in which fact and fiction combine to set the context and social conditions for meaningful interaction (in Spanish) with simulated characters, other players, and local citizens.

[Excerpt]: "Storytelling in all its forms (traditional pen and paper or digital) has always been a favourite of mine. I always include some kind of storytelling activity with my classes so I decided to write about some available tools for use online (digital storytelling) or in the classroom to support pen and paper storytelling."

Grading with Voice on an iPad - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Grading with Voice on an iPad - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

" ...

One of the frustrating things I found in teaching online last semester was the lack of direct contact with students. The class felt impersonal, despite my efforts to give it life.  I found that especially frustrating when I graded assignments. The feedback seemed cold and distant, even as I as I tried to point out strong areas of writing and multimedia projects.  I overcame this in part by using my iPad to add audio comments to grading. ...

Mobile Learning in ELT, Survey 2013 - Nik's [language] Learning Technology Blog

Mobile Learning in ELT, Survey 2013 - Nik's [language] Learning Technology Blog | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"Over the last 18 months since publishing the 2011 survey results, mobile learning seems to have made its way into the main stream of discourse surround the implementation of educational technology in our schools and universities, so I have decided once again, thanks to the support of the Bell Educational Services Teacher Training department,  to launch a more extensive survey building on the original one to try to discover the extent to which the ‘talk’ about mobile learning has had any genuine impact and realisation in our schools and classrooms over the past three to four years.

Whether you use technology, mobile learning or avoid it please find time to answer these 20 questions and share your ideas, opinions and reflections and I will once again publish the results for all to share.

When Traditional Policy Goes Bad: Teen Social Use of Mobile Devices in High Schools | DMLcentral | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

As I've been lately analyzing my data set related to in-school use of mobile devices at an urban school in South Central Los Angeles, I've been intrigued by some of the general tensions that exist in mobile media use in schools and the way teens tend to utilize mobile devices in ways that oppose traditional school power structures.
