Amazing Web2 Projects online version.pdf

Mark Ayton's insight:

There are so many good technologies to engage your learners out there but how to you use them in real educational situations? Although this free pdf book is a couple of years old it still contains good pedagogic ideas that can be used with many technologies. Short sharp overviews divided into suggested age groups provide an easily accessed catalogue of inspiration for all practitioners.

John Dalziel's curator insight, June 20, 2013 4:12 AM

Being an FE and Skills practitioner isn't easy.

Practitioners can produce excellent lesson plans and ensure they are fully prepared, only to fall flat in the learning environment.

What can these practitioners, and those engaged in initial teacher training, do?

To start with they need to know ...

their audience (learners) andwhat it actually takes to be an effective practitioner.

This interactive step-by-step visual guide provides some ideas and food for thought/discussion.

NOTE: Users access 9 additional infographics by clicking on each of the "9 Events in Learning"; each additional infographic has 27 tips of how practitioners may achieve each of the events in their learning environments.
