Krishna Prasad Subedi's curator insight, May 11, 2:23 AM

Fear to speak in the target language in non-native speakers' classroom has been a long topic of debate among the educationist, teachers and planners alike. Most children in Nepalese context either feel humiliated before they make mistakes in their utterance. Others fear to share their thoughts due to lack of proper knowledge of target language. While a large group of students, in the school where I teach, do not want to hear the negative feed backs from their teachers. There is always one or other reasons, which may not work together in every students, for excuses to students when it comes to speaking in the targeted language.

NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Preview | #AusELT Links | Scoop.it

There is an overarching sense in the academic world that research is first, while teaching is an obligation that must be performed. Because of this way of thinking, efforts to implement effective pedagogies are lacking. Adjunct professors and students feel the brunt of this challenge, as teaching-only contracts are underrated and underpaid, and learners must accept the outdated teaching styles of the university’s primary researchers.

"While there has been a bit of question as to the effectiveness of SAMR, a shift to move beyond SAMR, and a few proposed changes to the structure of the model floating around online, I have to say that hearing Dr. Ruben Puentedura (you may know him as the father of SAMR) speak at iPad Summit a few weeks ago still felt like a rare app-ortunity and a truly inspiring treat. As I am still collecting my thoughts and ideas from the event, I wanted to share some really great resources from the Dr. SAMR. "

Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning

Students’ Perceptions and Experiences of Mobile Learning | #AusELT Links | Scoop.it

This study focused on how students perceive the use of mobile devices to create a personalized learning experience outside the classroom. Fifty-three students in three graduate TESOL classes participated in this study. All participants completed five class projects designed to help them explore mobile learning experiences with their own mobile devices, incorporating technologies such as YouTube and VoiceThread. We identified characteristics of these mobile users in Mobile Language Learning (MLL), and the results illuminate how MLL opens up new pedagogical scaffoldings.

I get so excited when I see more developments on tyring to intergrate technology and education. This is because by combining learning with education, scholars get the opportunity of understanding academics through everyday technology such as their mobile phones. This article also interests me because I am interested in finding out how technology can assist teachers in making subjects such as maths and science more easier for learners.
