Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s insight:

You need a good tool for presentations, dive right on into the presentation creators and players which follow. None of the software here will make you a better presenter or speaker. But they might just be the right tools you need, and definitely at the right price (free!).

The use of virtual reality for language investigation and learning

The use of virtual reality for language investigation and learning | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

Considering these recent findings, the use of VR in the study of language processes becomes even more reasonable. In fact, VR can be considered an “embodied technology” for its effects on body perceptions (Riva, 2002): it is possible to use VR to induce controlled changes to the experience of the body; furthermore, the virtual environment can be enriched to the extent that it can become a plausible copy of the real world.

Potential Power of Blogging for Pedagogy

Potential Power of Blogging for Pedagogy | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
I believe in the potential power of blogging. I believe it can be harnessed to be a powerful pedagogical tool in the 21st Century.

 

4 Benefits of Integrating Blogging into Pedagogy

1. Blogs promote participation and collaboration of knowledge and skills. There are a myriad of resources available on the internet that can help students become creators, and not merely consumers of different texts and bodies of knowledge.

 

2. Blogs promote global communication and collaboration. Teachers can facilitate interactions with diverse cultures, ethnicities, and religions, and social contexts. Students can be helped to challenging their thinking by considering other viewpoints.

 

3. Blogs promote the critical analysis of pedagogy and literacies.

 

4. Blogs create the potential for interactive spaces for authentic exchanges. Strategies including reading logs, book reviews, parental communication, encouraging reading and writing and responding around a particular theme or focus.

If we can harness this power, we have a strong pedagogical tool on our hands. As with other areas in education, we can begin to harness this power by asking ourselves the right kinds of questions that can bring about the results we want to see.

Google Cast for Education, a free Chrome app that allows students and teachers to share their screens wirelessly from anywhere in the classroom. Cast for Education carries video and audio across complex school networks, has built-in controls for teachers, and works seamlessly with Google Classroom. And because the app runs on the teacher’s computer that’s connected to the projector, it doesn’t require new hardware. Teachers run the Cast for Education app, and students share their screens through the Cast feature in Chrome.

Léxico no es una acumulación de palabras. Eso es un diccionario. Léxico son las palabras que te permiten comunicarte con los demás. Y los demás no son solo los que te rodean. No hay nada más bonito que aprender de los que son diferentes. Nunca aprenderás tanto sobre tí como cuando te ves a través de los ojos de los demás.

"The truth is that assessment happens around a game more often than it happens inside the game, and teachers must still design and provide authentic, useful assessment tasks for students. These assessment tasks shouldn’t be seen as "extra work" for the teacher. They offer valuable ways to unlock the instructional power of games and support a student-centered learning environment. Teachers can create game-related performance tasks that are as interesting and engaging as the game itself."
