Lou Salza's curator insight, March 6, 2013 12:16 PM

"If you like to use your iPhone, iPad or laptop in your classroom because it allows you to effortlessly navigate the learning space, one of the greatest frustrations can be having to constrain yourself to the vicinity of the projector cable every time you want to share your screen with the class.

I have seen this as a common practice even in open plan learning environments, which instantly does away with it’s greatest feature by forcing the teacher to move back to the front of the room.

Whilst you can get wireless projectors at great expense, have you ever thought of using Apple’s $99 Apple TV? I hadn’t until recently, but since using it I could never go back to a physical projector/tv connection for the following 4 reasons:..."

Tim Pixley's curator insight, March 13, 2013 7:57 AM

I agree!  Once you find the right curators and develop relationships with them, they turn into mentors. Some of them are very successful, industry experts, and deeply respected.  Some material gets put out months before they're covered in a college class.  The trick is to be discerning as to what is merely a fad versus a long-term trend. ;)

Cyberbullying http://ow.ly/ikOLV ;

 

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of the Internet,

 

BYOD  http://ow.ly/ikOHT ;

 

How NOT to Steal From the Internet http://hownottosteal.wikispaces.com/

 

and

I really liked that there was a variety of program models used to present the material. I liked each one (Glogster, Today'sMeet, Wikispaces, WallWisher, and Poll Everywhere). I think our instructor was quite proud of everyone!"

Are you tired of searching for a specific glossary online? | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it


Try our new one-stop-shop for online glossaries in an array of domains.

We are glad to announce that we have added our Glossary Links (http://www.euterm.org/test1/glossary/) to the website and made them available to a wider public. It is a glossary search tool with a database of almost 1,400 glossaries available online and is constantly growing. All the links in the glossary search tool are regularly checked and updated by TermCoord in terms of relevancy and reliability.

You can now find glossaries according to topics and by language. The glossaries cover a wide range of domains like for example legal affairs, environment, medicine, consumer protection, human rights, economy and many others. It is very easy to use: just choose a category, enter a keyword or make a search by source (i.e. providers/creators of the glossaries).

We would be grateful for any feedback concerning the search tool itself and ideas for material to add to the Glossary Links (http://www.euterm.org/test1/glossary/).

Students Speak Up in Class, Silently, via Social Media

Students Speak Up in Class, Silently, via Social Media | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

Skeptics — and at this stage they far outnumber enthusiasts — fear introducing backchannels into classrooms will distract students and teachers, and lead to off-topic, inappropriate or even bullying remarks. A national survey released last month found that 2 percent of college faculty members had used Twitter in class, and nearly half thought that doing so would negatively affect learning.

Ken Morrison's comment, March 4, 2013 3:53 AM
I have used Twitter in a few classes. Students say they like it, but I fail to use it more often. It worked great as a break when I had two-hour classes. I would tell students to tweet about something new that they learned in the last hour and then take a break and/or questions. I would use break time to review the tweets via the common hashtag. We could start the next hour with a student-generated review and Q/A session. I was happy with the results, solid instruction & unscientific 'feeling' of the classroom.
