10 Free Tools for Building Blended & Online Learning

10 Free Tools for Building Blended & Online Learning | Language learning | Scoop.it
Remember though that finding the right tool is important, but how you structure and design interaction with the content is way more important. Taking classroom activities and materials and placing them on a web-based platform and expecting them to work is sure way to disappoint students. You need to think carefully about how the student will engage with the materials and how the materials relate to each other to ensure that your materials don’t just test the students’ knowledge and abilities, but that they guide and enable the student to hypothesise and make and confirm deductions in order to encourage deeper levels of autonomous learning.

[PDF] Skills for a Digital World

[PDF] Skills for a Digital World | Language learning | Scoop.it
The pervasiveness of digital technologies in daily life is fundamentally changing the way individuals access and elaborate knowledge. Individuals have to process complex information, think systematically and take decisions weighting different forms of evidence. They also have to continuously update their skills to match rapid technical change at the workplace. More fundamentally, in order to seize the new opportunities that digital technologies are opening in many areas, individuals have to develop the right set of skills to make a meaningful use of these technologies.
 
Increasing use of digital technologies at work is raising the demand for new skills along three lines: ICT specialist skills to programme, develop applications and manage networks; ICT generic skills to use such technologies for professional purposes; and ICT complementary skills to perform new tasks associated to the use of ICTs at work, e.g.: information-processing, self-direction, problem-solving and communication. Foundation skills, digital literacies as well as social and emotional skills are crucial to enable effective use of digital technologies by all individuals in their daily lives.
 
To ensure that individuals can engage in digital activities and adapt rapidly to new and unexpected occupations and skills needs, a stronger emphasis has to be placed in promoting strong levels of foundation skills, digital literacies, higher order thinking competencies as well as social and emotional skills.
 
These changes in the demand for skills present two major challenges to skills development systems, including formal education, training and the recognition of skills acquired through non-formal learning. First, while there is awareness that the skills profile of citizens and workers will be very different than in the past, the skills of the future are difficult to identify with certaintydue fast technological changes. The second challenge is to ensure that, once changes in skills have been identified, skills development systems adjust sufficiently fast to match new skills demands.
 
While raising the demand for new skills, digital technologies are also creating new opportunities for skills development. Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) and Open Educational Resources (OER) modify learning methods and give access to quality resources to a larger population over more flexible
hours. The use of digital technologies in formal education and vocational training has the potential to improve learning, although the outcomes depend on the capacity to link these tools to effective pedagogy.
 
Big data analytics can also complement labour market information systems with a more timely and precise monitoring of changing skills demand to adapt skills development and activation policies. Lastly, the increase in the quantity of data that are collected on education and labour markets on a daily basis through online courses, administrative records and online job vacancies, and their exploitation through data analytics can open endless avenues for research and innovation in education and training and helps to better inform policy decisions.
 
In spite of their potential, these initiatives have, thus far, remained a niche. Barriers to their adoption include limits on learners and teachers/trainers’ capacity to take advantage of digital technologies; concerns about the quality of online education; and the lack of recognition for learning outcomes. Policies to overcome these barriers and to ensure consistency and quality, especially in an international marketplace, are key to grasping the learning opportunities created by these tools.

3 Ways to Expand Your PLN This Summer - Daily Genius

3 Ways to Expand Your PLN This Summer - Daily Genius | Language learning | Scoop.it
Summer is fast approaching; this is the time of year when teachers are preparing students for exams and trying to keep their classes from descending into the Lord of the Flies. When it finally arrives, summer is an important time for busy educators and allows them to relax, recharge, and often work on honing their craft in both formal and informal professional development. With the more flexible work schedule of the summer, it is also a great time to build up your Professional Learning Network (PLN) — especially one that expands beyond the walls of the classroom.

Here are a few resources to help you do just that:

5 Websites That Make Language Learning More Interactive

5 Websites That Make Language Learning More Interactive | Language learning | Scoop.it
Great teachers strive to make learning engaging, interactive, and fun for students. Certain subjects like the visual arts and hands-on sciences may lend themselves well to this. Language learning, on the other hand, has rarely been grouped with “the cool subjects.”

As technology advances, more and more tools have become available that when used correctly can make language learning anything but boring.

As a teacher, you’ve already established a curriculum and methods for teaching your language, so instead of re-writing all of your work, pull from the myriad supplemental opportunities that can be found online to make lessons more engaging and therefore memorable.

Here are five great websites that supplement your lessons, making language learning more interactive and fun.

Las entrevistas en Investigación Cualitativa

Las entrevistas en Investigación Cualitativa | Language learning | Scoop.it
Las entrevistas son uno de los principales enfoques en la recogida de datos en la investigación cualitativa. Conocemos una variedad de formas de hacer entrevistas con objetivos y principios diferentes. Al mismo tiempo, la entrevista se presenta con varias ventajas, prácticas y problemas diversos comunes a todas las opciones de su realización. Podemos estudiar la realización de entrevistas en niveles diferentes: teórico, epistemológico, ético y práctico. Una vez que la entrevista se ha realizado, le siguen varios pasos: las formas específicas de documentar lo que ha ocurrido en la entrevista individual llevan a necesidades y reglas para la transcripción. Los datos obtenidos demandan formas específicas de realización del análisis cualitativo. La realización de entrevistas trae consigo necesidades específicas de aumentar la calidad de la entrevista en general y su validez en particular, y finalmente de informar de lo que se dijo y cómo se analizó. Este libro trata muy detalladamente todas estas cuestiones de la realización de entrevistas y se basa en la larga experiencia del autor en la realización de entrevistas y en escribir sobre ellas y su realización. Este libro es una parte de la colección de investigación cualitativa que dirijo y tiene un sólido enfoque en la recogida de datos, pero también en cuestiones específicas sobre el análisis y la evaluación de esta forma específica de datos. Por consiguiente, algunos de los otros libros de la colección deberían ser útiles para complementar lo que se dice en esta obra. En particular, los volúmenes de GIBBS (2007) sobre análisis de datos cualitativos y de RAPLEY (2007a) sobre análisis de discurso y de conversación dan más información sobre cómo analizar los datos cualitativos procedentes de entrevistas (y de otras fuentes). El libro de FLICK (2007a) entra más en los detalles de la planificación y el diseño de la investigación cualitativa (y de la realización de entrevistas) en general. Los problemas de calidad en la investigación cualitativa, que son también objeto de este libro, se debaten más detalladamente en el volumen sobre gestión de la calidad en la investigación cualitativa de FLICK (2007a). En los otros libros de la colección de Investigación Cualitativa se resumen formas distintas o adicionales de recogida de datos: ANGROSINO (2007) presenta la observación participante y la etnografía (y también el uso de entrevistas en este contexto). BARBOUR (2007) entra más en los detalles sobre los grupos de discusión como alternativa a las entrevistas individuales y BANKS (2007) estudia el uso de datos visuales de manera más detallada. EXTRACTO DEL CONTENIDO: Introducción a la investigación a través de entrevistas. Aspectos epistemológicos de la entrevista. Aspectos éticos. Planificar un estudio a través de entrevistas. Dirigir una entrevista. Variaciones de las entrevistas. Calidad de las entrevistas. La transcripción de las entrevistas. Analizar entrevistas. Validación y generalización del conocimiento sobre entrevistas. Informar sobre el conocimiento adquirido durante la entrevista. Aumentar la calidad de las entrevistas.
