A Great app for developing spelling

A Great app for developing spelling | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

For those of you who don't know about SpellingCity, the website enables learners or teachers to enter a word list and then automatically generate a range of interactive multimedia activities based around the words. The site automatically adds audio recordings of the words and example sentences to the activities it generates. There is a great range of activities that students can do within the site and they can generate certificates for their teacher or parent to prove they have done their homework.

Aubrey Smythe's curator insight, August 17, 2013 4:35 PM

Any business person knows that's it's often quite difficult to find good royalty-free images to use on a business website. Pixabay is a great resource. Just been through it briefly and I've already downloaded 2 or 3 images. No attribution and I'm quite happy with the creative commons licensing too: http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/deed.en ;

Educators as Social Networked Learners

Educators as Social Networked Learners | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

"This fall, I am getting the opportunity to design and teach a graduate course for Boise State University’s Education Technology Program entitled, Social Networked Learning. The majority of students in the program are K-12 in-service teachers who are seeking ways to enhance their teaching with integrated and emerging technologies. I am so excited about what students are producing for this course and in terms of meeting this goal that I wanted to share information about the course, a sampling of course activities, and example student work.

 

Course Description

This course explores collaborative and emergent pedagogies, tools, and theory related to the use of social networks in learning environments. Participants gain hands-on experience with a variety social networking tools, create their own personal learning networks, and have an opportunity to develop a MOOC-inspired course for their learners."

Pedagogical innovation in new learning communities

Pedagogical innovation in new learning communities | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

In addition to formal education, such communities are increasingly emerging in informal and non-formal lifelong learning environments where learning is happening in a freely organised manner, bringing together learners, experts, and other parties. This study aims to examine these new learning communities in order to find innovative pedagogical and organisational practices that support lifelong learning in different settings and foster innovations in the interaction of teachers, learners and organisations.
