Nik's QuickShout: Developing materials and practices for the digital generation

Nik's QuickShout: Developing materials and practices for the digital generation | Nik Peachey | Scoop.it

On the 24th January 2012 I delivered an online webinar presentation for the IATEFL Young Learner SIG. The theme of the presentation was 'Developing materials and practices for the digital generation.' I focused on how teachers could combine the use of online tools to encourage students' digital literacy and study skills whilst also developing their ability to develop their linguistic skills in a more autonomous way.

Growth Hacking Your Book Sales - EFL Magazine

Growth Hacking Your Book Sales - EFL Magazine | Nik Peachey | Scoop.it

In many ways writing and creating your own book is the easy part of self-publishing. The really difficult part comes when you start trying to sell it. This is especially difficult for many writers. We are writers not marketing specialists so we don’t have the kinds of marketing budget, reputation and brand recognition that an established publishing house carries.

Using the webcam to engage with online students | Nik Peachey | Scoop.it

Studying online can be a very solitary process and it’s this feeling of isolation that is most often attributed to the high rate of student drop-outs in online courses. As an online teacher, this makes quickly building a good relationship with your students all the more vital.

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Why do so many Moodle courses suck? | Nik Peachey | Scoop.it

Given the state of many of these courses, it’s no wonder that drop out rates for online learning are so high. And of course Moodle isn’t the only culprit. Many of the other commercially available LMS (learning management systems) and VLE (virtual learning environment) platforms aren’t doing any better.

Mick D Kirkov's curator insight, April 5, 2014 3:30 AM

You know, the most expensive things for a state are still

1) the education

2) the health care

 

If somehow new media can help, it goes here upon trillions of $$$ that could be saved. Like e.g. in using LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com/edu/?trk=nav_responsive_sub_nav_edu instead of or parallel with another education. 


Montse Delgado, Manager at Open Education Challenge asked: What is the role of virtual reality applications in the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) era? - Can virtual and augmented reality applications deliver the missing ingredients for profound, effective learning in distance education? What is the role of virtual reality applications in the MOOC era? CALL FOR PAPERS! http://www.openeducationeuropa.eu/en/elearning_papers/call_for_papers     (open to Apr 27 2014). Spread the word!

 

Those saved could be put f.ex. in measures by people against Earth Warming that is, for the time being still ignored. But its revenge lets us notice it, that's in cash. No matter if the losses are in Venezia, N.Y. or in New Orleans, on north or south pole.

Spell Up. Speak to play and build up your English. | Nik Peachey | Scoop.it

This is a great new game from Google which helps students develop their vocabulary through spelling and pronunciation. Using Chrome, students can actually speak to the computer and listen to the pronunciation of the words as they build a word tower. They can even listen to a speaking dictionary telling them what the words mean. This should get your students working autonomously to develop their own vocabulary and if they sign in they can track and share their results.

“Debemos enseñar a los estudiantes a no creer todo lo que aparece en Facebook” | Nik Peachey | Scoop.it

Cuando están en la escuela primaria, aprenden con el juego, la curiosidad y haciendo cosas, pero cuando llegan a secundaria deben estar quietos, estar dentro de la fila, escuchar y anotar lo que el profesor dice, se les empieza a examinar y decidimos lo que deben saber. Hay que parar eso en la educación secundaria y en la universidad, debería parecerse más a primaria, mantener viva esa curiosidad e interés por el mundo. Con la tecnología, podemos dar rienda suelta a esa curiosidad y los estudiantes pueden buscar y aprender cosas por ellos mismos, y pueden jugar como lo hacían en sus primeros años de enseñanza.
