"It’s tempting to say that no matter how much technology pushes on education, every teacher will always need to know iconic teacher practices like assessment, curriculum design, classroom management, and cognitive coaching.

Core Learning Principles:
#1: Every Structured Learning Experience Has Four Elements with the Learner at the Center
#2: Every Learning Experience Includes the Environment in which the Learner Interacts
#3: We Shape Our Tools and Our Tools Shape Us
#4: Faculty are the Directors of the Learning Experience
#5: Learners Bring Their Own Personalized Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes to the Learning Experience
#6: Every Learner Has a Zone of Proximal Development That Defines the
Space That a Learner is Ready to Develop into Useful Knowledge
#7: Concepts are Not Words; Concepts are Organized and Intricate Knowledge Clusters
#8: All Learners Do Not Need to Learn All Course Content; All Learners Do
Need to Learn the Core Concepts
#9: Different Instruction is Required for Different Learning Outcomes
#10: Everything Else Being Equal, More Time-on-Task Equals More Learning

Thanks to Juergen Wagner and Fortbildung Online for hosting two #Webheadsinaction interactants Rita Zeinstejer (ThinkLink) and Nik Peachey (HelloTalk) during a #learning2gether winter break. These two sessions are archived here with value added of mp3 recordings of the original Adobe Connect events. Enjoy.
This presentation will take a look at progress in virtual reality and immersive technologies over the last 10 years, culminating in the realisation of the Oculus Rift and similar devices, and will include a video demo of the Oculus. The presentation will then address the potential use of such immersive technologies in the world of education and learning.

The InterCultural Resource pack (ICRP) presented here is intended to be shared among the whole ELT community, for everybody to benefit from it. All of you are invited to download the entire by clicking in the image below. It would be great if you could all give us feedback on the activities in the pack as you use them.
We are interested in both “process” and “product” info, i.e. results of the activities in terms of content. It will also be of great help for all to know the adaptations you’ve made to use them in your contexts.
Our idea is to pool all these results together in each Intercultural Voices post.
You and your students are invited to interact in the forum. It´d be wonderful to hear our intercultural voices!
This pack represents the outcome of a project proposal started at the Hornby Summer School Brazil 2006. It was funded by the British Council/ELTeCS Scheme and developed by the following ELT professionals:
Andrea Morgado de Matos. Rio de Janeiro,Brazil-Cognitive Domain Idiomas. Project leader
Andrea Assenti del Rio – La Plata,Argentina – Home-tailor made English Courses and Universidad Nacional de La Plata
Nahir Aparicio Medina – Caracas,Venezuela – Instituto Pedagógico de Caracas at Universidad Pedagógica Experimental Libertador.
Sergio Mobilia – Buenos Aires,Argentina – Fulbright Fellow, University of ConnecticutTeresa Martins – Sao Paulo, Brazil – Colegio Divino Salvador and Universidade Paulista.

The ‘Teaching Unplugged’ or ‘Dogme ELT’ movement has a very strong following amongst teachers. In fact, the Dogme ELT discussion list, which was
Teaching Unplugged is the term used for a teaching method and philosophy which has three primary aims: teaching through conversation, taking out external input such as course book and technology and letting the lesson content be driven by the students rather than being pre-planned by the teacher. Based on the ‘Dogme ELT’ approach to teaching, its origins lie in an article written in 2001 by Scott Thornbury and Luke Meddings called ‘The roaring in the chimney’. They later wrote ‘Teaching Unplugged’, a comprehensive guide to this type of teaching and winner of the British Council ELTons award for Innovation in 2010.
