Amidst a Mobile Revolution in Schools, Will Old Teaching Tactics Work?

Amidst a Mobile Revolution in Schools, Will Old Teaching Tactics Work? | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Just a few years ago, the idea of using a mobile phone as a legitimate learning tool in school seemed far-fetched, if not downright blasphemous. Kids were either prohibited from bringing their phones to school, or at the very least told to shut it off during school hours.

The Nextbook Must Be… : 2¢ Worth

The Nextbook Must Be… : 2¢ Worth | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

The textbook should be active and interactive. It both reflects and magnifies the learner, the teacher, and their world – and it adapts to its interactions with each. It does not respond with a “right” or a “wrong.” Instead, it causes the reader to say, “that worked” or “that didn’t work.” The textbook will also contrive long-term narrative-puzzles that reach other readers, building communities of mutual concern.

A comparison of 2 technology integration frameworks

A comparison of 2 technology integration frameworks | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

A guidance framework is required. Should the framework be an explicit set of measurable standards or descriptive target areas? The two best frameworks that I have found for technology integration are the International Society for Technology in Educations ‘NET standards’ and the “21st century fluencies” developed as part of the 21st century fluency project.

Professional Development for Language Teachers

Professional development is an elusive term in education. To many, the term conjures up images of in-service days and workshops. To others, it refers to a process in which teachers work under supervision to gain tenure or to enhance their professional practice. In this paper, professional development is defined as an ongoing learning process in which teachers engage voluntarily to learn how best to adjust their teaching to the learning needs of their students.
