Great article explaining how the brain interprets text in two different formats (on screen vs. on paper). I knew there had to be a reason why reading from a book has advantages over a screen and this article offers great explanations. In my own classroom research, those who read the paper copy of books do far better on assessments than those who read the digitial copies. Also, students score better on paper tests/quizzes than on online assessments. Knowing how long the quiz or test is and being able to look back or look forward on assignments and in books really is important.

Activités TBI pour la classe de FLE : Quelques exemples

Activités TBI pour la classe de FLE : Quelques exemples | Reading Brain | Scoop.it

Les exemples d’activités TBI (tableau blanc interactif) en classe de FLE que je propose ci-dessous s’adressent à des enseignants qui, comme moi, ne sont pas experts en matière de TBI.

Précisons tout d’abord que je n’ai pas de manuel scolaire numérique, donc j’utilise le TBI pour d’autres fonctions.

Selon mon expérience, il y a plusieurs types de TBI. Ceux sur lesquels je travaille ne sont pas tactiles mais possèdent un stylet. De plus, ils n’ont pas d’autres outils avancés : mes élèves ne possèdent pas de tablette ni d’ordinateur relié au TBI. Le programme installé dans mon lycée s’appelle Interwrite WorkSpace.

I am a huge fan of Pinterest and will definitely try this out in my classroom; though Pinterest is not so well known in the UK.

I admit to knowing nothing about Pinterest, but this makes it look interesting and useful.
