Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker | Successful EFL Teaching | Scoop.it

As the traditional lecture has come increasingly under fire for being completely out of touch with modern teaching and learning methods, there has been a move by many teachers, conference presenters and lecturers to make their teaching techniques more modern and interactive. One of the key technologies for enabling this has been a range of audience response systems that provide real time responses to polls, questions and surveys while the speakers is actually presenting.

Learner-centred approaches encourage interactivity in learning

Nalya Ovshieva's curator insight, September 26, 2013 11:13 AM

It's worth while trying it. Lectures that involve a degree of social interaction are usually more satisfying.

Steph's Journalism Group 2013's curator insight, October 7, 2013 7:22 PM
Chwayita Ceejay January's insight:'

A very interesting tool, that teachers can use inside and outside the formal learning area. Where students can interact with the information live during the lecture (where most interaction should happen anyway) closing the 'cold and insigificant' student-lecturer relationship. Students can respond to the data while the lecture is in progress. As expensive and time-consuming (training) this intiative would be to udertake it would certainly improve lecture attedance. :D

Connectivism as a Digital Age Learning Theory

George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. Their proposed learning theory has issued a debate over whether it is a learning theory or instructional theory or merely a pedagogical view.

Blended Learning Implementation Guide

Blended learning means rethinking how class is structured, how time is used, and how limited resources are allocated. Compared to high-access environments, which simply provide devices for every student, blended learning includes an intentional shift to online instructional delivery for a portion of the day in order to boost learning and productivity. Productivity in this sense includes improvements to teacher access of data and its potential to inform instruction. Greater student productivity includes less time wasted on skills already mastered. Increased learning opportunities and improved student outcomes enhance overall system productivity.

BLENDED LEARNING... WONDERFUL IDEA!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 25, 2013 12:24 PM

We should have thought about restructing classrooms and the relationship we have with learning as teachers and learners.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 27, 2013 6:01 PM

The integration of technology and teaching is completely a good idea in my opinion. Especially given that we are living in a digital age, where learners have access to a lot of technical devices, which aim at improving and making life efficient. Thus by building curricula that welcomes the use of technology inside the classroom, will change the face of education - hopefully for the better. However my concern is the introduction of a 'customised' form of learning. Education is supposed to be unified experience where learners access information at the same time and at the same pace. It seems unfair that because there wil be fast learners in a class, that means they have to get to the end of the syllabus quicker than others. Everyone should receive attention in a similar manner, whether they understand the work or not. Teaching should not favour one person over the other.
