Edumorfosis: 100 EduFrases para reflexionar... | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

Excelente trabajo de Edumorfis... Refleja la discusion de educadores apasionados por aprender y enseñar. Educadores que comparten sus experiencias y opiniones sobre la educacion cambiante del mundo de hoy... Esta recopilacion ofrece mucho para pensar y aplicar en la practica diaria.

 

"Educarse no es ocuparse individualmente de lo que nos afecta e ignorar a los otros, ni olvidarse de lo común, de la comunidad, la comunicación. Es de sentirse vinculado con una tarea que precisa nuestra máxima implicación, una imlpicación de transformación (Ángel Gabilondo)"

Michael Sandel’s Famous Harvard Course on Justice Now Available as a MOOC: Register Today | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

How participating in these kind of experiences boots language learning?

 

Well, since motivation to learn is there already..language doesn't become an obstacle but the way to get the information. These kind of courses based on flip classroom techniques offer digital tools that are available for free in the internet as the use of videos with subtitles, transcripts, and differet readings. Students can work with the help of dictionaries on line or the google translator tool that also offers the opportunity of listening to text in the target language.

 

Moreover, students get the chance to connect with different communities of practice. Twitter and Facebook become excellent open forums where different people from different backgrounds or cultures that speak the same language can get together to ask and discuss issues related to the course. It's a great opportunity for students to get to know how it is to learn in an university with great professors with great experience. Digital literacies and language are key to be sucessful in these kind of learning adventures. It's a challenge and a great opportunity that is offered for free. It takes students creativity and resilience to conquer the many new chalenges. Thse are the signs of the education of today. So, go ahead and give it a try.. :)

Plan B: Una visión crítica. Justificación y propósitos.

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
Como decía Papert (1) se trata de "Enseñar a los Niños cómo ser Matemáticos en lugar de enseñar Matemáticas para Niños", de que "el maestro use el método de descubrimiento y perfeccione la serie de preguntas que llevan a la clase a descubrir en el texto la línea Del cielo cayó una rosa"   Hoy como ayer (2) "una característica muy importante del trabajo con computadoras es que el maestro y el alumno pueden trabajar en real colaboración intelectual; juntos pueden tratar de hacer que la computadora haga esto o aquello y comprender lo que efectivamente hace".

StoryFests SL: ANNOUNCING: The Dickens Project! | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

Well, this will be really interesting... StoryFest Events in SL offer these gathering where presenters read their stories... as they say in their blog... "BRINGING STORIES AND STORYTELLERS TOGETHER TO SHARE THEIR TALES: BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER AND INSPIRING THEM THROUGH THE POWER OF STORIES."


Their latest project is a special one for Christmas Time....

 

We are in the waning months of the Dickens Bicentenary Year of celebration, and what better way to wrap up that year than with a tribute to his masterwork A Christmas Carol.  StoryFest Events will be launching The Dickens Project as just such a tribute.  


Sponsored by Stories Unlimited! and the Community Virtual Library, The Dickens Project will be an interactive environment for the presentation of A Christmas Carol which will be open to presentations of that work in whole, part, or adapted (as long as it is true to the original story) beginning December 14th through December 26th.  On December 27th, the last day of the Project, the venue will be open to "alternate version" presentations and tributes to the classic.


So this Friday 14th, I will be there to enjoy some xmas stories.. Hope to see you there.. :)

This is an excellent opportunity for practicing every skill in the new language, also connect to a community of practice and get to learn from a great professor. The topics discussed and the opportunity for exchanging ideas will help langauge students to experienced how is it to learn with students from allover the world and get the chance to peek how it is learning at a world famous university. this is the description of the course...

Topics include affirmative action, income distribution, same-sex marriage, the role of markets, debates about rights (human rights and property rights), arguments for and against equality, dilemmas of loyalty in public and private life. The course invites students to subject their own views on these controversies to critical examination.

The principle readings for the course are texts by Aristotle, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, John Stuart Mill, and John Rawls. Other assigned readings include writings by contemporary philosophers, court cases, and articles about political controversies that raise philosophical questions."

Randy Nelson on Learning and Working in the Collaborative Age

Randy Nelson on Learning and Working in the Collaborative Age
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
 I just love this part...... "Randy Nelson: One of the things that we do at Pixar and I know some things about Pixar uhm ... is we use improv as a mechanism of helping with collaboration. And in that, two core principles of improv have always guided us. The first is, accept every offer. So if an improv, improviser says to you, "Gee it's funny. It's raining a lot in here today." You don't go "Raining in here?" You say, "Well that's why they gave us umbrellas." It's an offer. You don't know where it's gonna go. But the guarantee you have, is that if you don't accept that offer, it goes nowhere. So you've got a sure thing on one hand, dead end, or you've got a possibility on the other. And the other principle is make your partner look good. What a great thing. So you know on a team, that anything anybody says to you, you're gonna get a chance to plus that. You're gonna get a chance to have that beyond the table. And they're gonna try and make you look good, not make you look bad. At Pixar, what we mean by plussing is this. You take a piece of work. You take something that you're working on collaboratively. And when it's given to you, you don't judge it. You don't go, "Ooh this is pretty good. Here's what I'm going to do to make it better." Or, "This isn’t so good, here is how I'm gonna fix it." You say, "Here's where I'm starting. What can I do with this? How do I plus this? How do I accept the offer and make my partner look good?"

Improving Instruction – Increasing Immersion With the iPad in the Foreign Language Classroom | Emerging Education Technology

Improving Instruction – Increasing Immersion With the iPad in the Foreign Language Classroom | Emerging Education Technology | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

The best way to learn a foreign language is through immersion, but immersion is nearly impossible to replicate in the traditional educational environment. In my opinion, the iPad is the most promising tool available to date to foreign language educators to help recreate the immersion environment for students outside of the classroom.

Article original : Blogs, Wikis, Docs: Which is right for your lesson? A Comparison Table. Dr Mark Wagner.


Excellent... Blogs, wikies and Docs are excellent tools to integrate in the language class. In my experience, they are not only tools that help enhance learning a new language but they are tools we should all learn to use. It's just the literacy we need to write and read in our time.
