To address these challenges, the Creative Classrooms Lab project will carry out a series of policy experimentations to collect evidence on the implementation, impact and up-scaling of 1:1 pedagogical approaches using tablets. This evidence will enable policy makers to take more informed decisions.

The "Kid Blog' is a safe and effective way to allow your students to keep up to date blogs in a secure evironment. With these blogs students can not only post their own blogs, but oarticipate in discussions.

I feel this is a gerat resourse to use within the classroom, as students and teachers can keep track of students posts and especially look at their progress throughout the year.

Inspiring

Julie Newman's curator insight, November 15, 2013 11:43 AM

I found this article very inspirational because it describes a teacher, Jane Good, who did not give up on her special needs students, as the school system was prior to her arrival. Before she came to her current school, her special needs students were placed in broken-down classrooms where they were given no attention and very low expectations. Good was able to guide her students in overcoming these obstacles with the help of a technology grant she received allowing her to supply everyone of her students with an iPad. These iPads allowed students to accomplish goals no one ever thought was possible for them. For example, one student who had never written before due to his lack of fine motor skills wrote his first word on the iPad. Similarly, three other students were able to learn to read though the iPad's stimulating and interactive features. After reading this article, I found that the iPad and other technologies truly helped children with special needs step outside the limitations previously established for them by the school system and make progress no one ever believed could be made. This alone shows me how powerful this tool can be in a special needs classroom. These students need to be stimulated through interactive learning and the iPad provides just that. I have found a lot of research that agrees with this article and proves that technology is a necessity in the special needs classroom.

And they approach the writing process more fluidly. “I have seen students more willing to go back and revise or improve their work in order to provide more clarity when using digital tools than when they are writing it on paper,”

For students who struggle with output, the option now exists to record ideas directly "onto a page." Similarly, teachers can leave audio feedback for students who benefit from hearing input multiple times. With the built-in camera, students can quickly snap pictures of class notes on a board, or record a quick video of teacher instruction. Leveraging just these few features has the potential to personalize learning and differentiate instruction where it might otherwise be impossible.

Blended learning is an area of ELT that continues to be of interest to practitioners in the field. Despite this, little can be found in the literature on blended learning course design or detailed descriptions provided of blends used in ELT contexts. This publication, which contains twenty case studies from around the world, addresses this deficit by illustrating blends being employed on EAP, ESP, Teacher Development and general EFL courses.
