Personalize Learning: 10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013

Personalize Learning: 10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013 | Language teaching and learning in higher education | Scoop.it

Teachers and learners of all ages are connecting more than ever. In 2013, we will see teachers expanding their Personal Learning Networks (PLN) using social media. They will be telling more stories and sharing their journeys as they personalize learning. Learners will be using mobile devices for learning in and out of school. We will be seeing learners involved in more global collaborative projects in 2013.

John McDermott Neill's curator insight, February 6, 2013 11:26 PM

The future outlined here would seem to be achievable but can students really be trusted to "own" their learning?

Arlene Salyards's curator insight, February 14, 2013 5:26 PM

I like this statement "It is time to bring back inquiry and encourage questions that have no right answers."

EDUCTO's curator insight, August 6, 2013 7:59 PM

We're halfway through the year, how well did we do on these predictions so far?

Making Video for Language Learning and Teaching Workshop | Centre for English Language Teaching, University of York, 15 Nov 2014

Making Video for Language Learning and Teaching Workshop | Centre for English Language Teaching, University of York, 15 Nov 2014 | Language teaching and learning in higher education | Scoop.it

This practical workshop will introduce ELT professionals to the skills involved in making short video films to support teaching and learning. It will explore how to develop an idea into a film that can be exploited effectively in the classroom or in a self-access context. It will draw on the trainers’ experience of making such films for the Higher Education sector. They are joint authors of the video-based course, Access UK., winner of the English Speaking Union President's Award 2012.
Rather than attempt a full technical briefing, the workshop will help participants identify equipment appropriate to different purposes and skills they can draw on from technical colleagues in their own institutions. During the day, small groups will collaborate on conceiving and shooting a short film with the assistance of trainers.  To keep this simple, we will use I-pads to both shoot and edit the content.

 

Audience

ELT staff within Higher Education
Also of potential interest to ELT practitioners in Further Education and in the private sector, teachers of other languages and anyone with an interest in video and education.
As this a “hands-on” workshop, the number of participants will be limited to fifteen, thus allowing plenty of individual support from trainers.

Outcomes

Participants will:
• explore techniques of using video for language learning in the classroom and for self-access
• consider how to prepare content for a dramatised or factual film
• investigate production techniques for video / audio recording
• identify technical resources and support appropriate for different projects
• participate in conceiving and recording a short scene
• appreciate basic principles of editing
