10 Free Tools for Building Blended & Online Learning

10 Free Tools for Building Blended & Online Learning | Talking TEFL | Scoop.it
Remember though that finding the right tool is important, but how you structure and design interaction with the content is way more important. Taking classroom activities and materials and placing them on a web-based platform and expecting them to work is sure way to disappoint students. You need to think carefully about how the student will engage with the materials and how the materials relate to each other to ensure that your materials don’t just test the students’ knowledge and abilities, but that they guide and enable the student to hypothesise and make and confirm deductions in order to encourage deeper levels of autonomous learning.

ENGLISH for 450 million… and more

ENGLISH for 450 million… and more | Talking TEFL | Scoop.it

Today there are close to 2 billion people using English. Twenty-five percent of them are actively trying to improve their abilities (500 million), and among those, 9/10 do not have the financial means for formal instruction beyond their scholastic years. It’s true. The majority of private schools (Wall Street Institute, English Town, Berlitz…) are beyond the means of many English learners, as these big institutions have aimed at finding clients who can pay top dollar, leaving the rest to the side. We want to change that.

11 Tips for Setting the Tone in Your Online Course - Faculty Focus | Faculty Focus | Talking TEFL | Scoop.it
By: Errol Craig Sull in Online Education

 

The cliché that you only get one chance to make a first impression is especially true when you teach online. Each item you post—email, discussion message, announcement, etc.—must be created with much thought, and none is more important than the first post to your class.


It is a delicate creation, this first post, but once you know how, it can be pivotal in getting your class off in the right direction.

7 Secrets to Making This Year the Best Year Ever

7 Secrets to Making This Year the Best Year Ever | Talking TEFL | Scoop.it

It’s the time of year when goals are made and abandoned a few weeks later. Will you be one of them, or will you set goals that have the power to change your life?

 

Not achieving what you set out to do means you’ll yet again fail to move toward the life you desire, which leads to nothing but regret. Inertia can be difficult to overcome, but something you may overlook is the influence from friends, parents, and society in general.

 

Often what you believe you want is not what you want at all. The trick lies in setting meaningful objectives.

 

It doesn’t matter whether you set goals or not, as long as you’re doing something that makes you come alive.
