Interesting research!!!

Technology can sometimes be wasted on English language teaching

Technology can sometimes be wasted on English language teaching | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Most important is the need for a different approach to teacher development that focuses on helping teachers with their own digital literacies. These are the skills to integrate technology into our daily lives and practices. Technology use, just like the language our students learn, needs to focus on things that are useful and that enrich and enable lives.

An interesting article and I must agree. Classroom based technology and inter-active language technology will bring only limited benefits to the language student vis-à-vis deeper cognitive development, unless accompanied with rich tools to develop full social integration skills with information technology and these skills start with the teacher.

Great article. Makes the case for some IT staff to be pedagogically trained... a universal need

How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom

How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

At its core, the issues associated with mobile learning get to the very fundamentals of what happens in class everyday. At their best, cell phones and mobile devices seamlessly facilitate what students and teachers already do in thriving, inspiring classrooms. Students communicate and collaborate with each other and the teacher. They apply facts and information they’ve found to formulate or back up their ideas. They create projects to deepen their understanding, association with, and presentation of ideas.
