Only two things wrong with education: 1) What we teach; 2) How we teach

Only two things wrong with education: 1) What we teach; 2) How we teach | Language Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

To cut to the quick, Schank thinks Higher Education is a con. You pay through the nose for not very much more than a three or four year vacation and a good social life. The courses are poor and the system designed to select researchers.

How 21st Century Thinking Is Just Different - TeachThought

How 21st Century Thinking Is Just Different - TeachThought | Language Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

If the 20th century model was to measure the accuracy and ownership of information, the 21st century’s model is form and interdependence. The close thinking needed to grasp this is not beyond the reach of a typical middle school student, but it may be beyond their thinking habits.

It Is Not About the Gadgets - Why Every Teacher Should Have to Integrate Tech Into Their Classroom | Learning Technology | Language Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

I once sat on an interview committee in which the candidate proudly proclaimed that to integrate technology her students would use word processors and publish their work in a monthly book. My toes instantly curled.-N Peachy

Are kids really motivated by technology?

You can’t motivate students with technology because technology alone isn’t motivating. Worse yet, students are almost always ambivalent toward digital tools. While you may be completely jazzed by the interactive whiteboard in your classroom or the wiki that you just whipped up, your kids could probably care less.

How To Design Your Own Infographics

How To Design Your Own Infographics | Language Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects. From mortgages to ice cream, estimating software to infographics about infographics, there is very little now that hasn't been 'visualised' in some form. Many people don't realise that the term information graphic, or 'infographic' was first coined over 100 years ago, with the Coxcomb chart by Florence Nightingale in 1857 being one of earliest recognised examples. They have existed in many forms since then, but only in the past few years have infographics developed into the art form we know today.
