Always reinforce your words with clear visuals and other modalities. This diagram can be broken down in a PowerPoint by your students; then they can teach peers what it illustrates. Encourage them to use available design to reinforce their lessons. [See: Cope & Kalantzis (New London Group), 1996]

The Evolution of Classroom Technology - Edudemic

The Evolution of Classroom Technology - Edudemic | Learning-English-Links | Scoop.it

We’ve certainly come a long way but some things seem hauntingly similar to many years ago. For example, Thomas Edison said in 1925 that “books will soon be obsolete in schools. Scholars will soon be instructed through the eye.” I’m pretty sure this is exactly what people are saying these days about the iPad.

Interesting to listen to B.F. Skinner talk about the machine for learning. He talks about the student moving at "his" own pace. This is, no surprise, the differentiated or Mass Customized Learning precursor.

5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom

5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom | Learning-English-Links | Scoop.it

Implementing some kind of self-assessment is a very good thing, as it enables learners to judge the quality of their work. I’ve done this on an ad-hoc basis at times in the past, but using a formal instrument or procedure can work wonders, even if it has no official bearing on the final outcome.

Youtube is considered such a great tool in the development of oral skills. It is very easy to use it, and students feel more interested and motivated in learning through the use of this technological tool.

Jéssica Cristiny Campos's curator insight, November 19, 2014 9:57 AM

Youtube became so common among our students and they became familiar with it. So, what about using it in the classroom? Look to this experience at the Lakeview Elementary School in Yukon.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | Learning-English-Links | Scoop.it

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.

The author’s son brought home a handout that explains the basics of great writing.

 

I’ve written several posts about my 10-year-old son and his developing writing skills. And though he may not share my alacrity for writing, his school curriculum is full of great writing advice. 

Recently, he came home with a handout called “Six traits of great writing.” The advice outlined in the handout is basic, but it remains important for writers of all stripes.

All things in eModeration: Moderating Class Blogs and Facebook Student Groups

All things in eModeration: Moderating Class Blogs and Facebook Student Groups | Learning-English-Links | Scoop.it

Moderation involves students’ participation to online communities and this is something that only you can encourage no matter how powerful a tool is. If participation is optional not all students are likely to contribute. On the other hand, if it is mandatory or marked it might feel like another task that needs to be done. It would be better to integrate it into your course so that students perceive it as an essential part of their learning. For example, you might start a discussion in class that could be continued online; or instead of asking them to write an essay, you could post a relevant video, ask them to discuss it with classmates online and then write something on this.
