Should performance assessments replace standardized tests?

Should performance assessments replace standardized tests? | Teaching (EFL & other teaching-learning related issues) | Scoop.it

Many experts are advocating for US school districts to replace standardized tests with presentations, projects and portfolios -- particularly for struggling students. The experts say this approach more accurately reflects what students have learned, but critics worry that replacing exams could weaken education standards.

8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | Teaching (EFL & other teaching-learning related issues) | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.

영어 아직도 어렵죠? 인터넷 시대의 강점을 활용해 봅시다. 개인적으로는 duolingo.com 선호
Mauricio Diaz's curator insight, September 3, 9:22 PM
Youtube has become one of the most usefull tools for searching information on enternet, there we can find news, tutorials, classes, lessons, instructions, and many more data, although it is not oficial, it is a source of information very useful even for academic people who eventually use this videos pge as a tool or source of information, it does not matter if this information is uploaded by some one who does not has knowledge about the theme or at least enough knowledge to be valid information, eventhough this page counts with an options of likes and dislikes, where people can get a type of guide to know if this information is usefull or not.
Then me as a user of this page is able say that the videos inside the page are valid at least for basic information.

Connectivism: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology

Connectivism: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology | Teaching (EFL & other teaching-learning related issues) | Scoop.it
Just like anything else that involves human experience or interaction, the act of learning does not happen in a vacuum. It is at the intersection of prior knowledge, experience, perception, reality, comprehension, and flexibility that learning occurs. In years past, the traditional learning paradigms of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism have been the benchmarks against which the learning process has been measured. What happens, though, when you throw into the mix all the technological advancements that have come about over the last 40-50 years? These theories certainly do not become obsolete by any means, but they do need to be used in a very different way to be able to incorporate the attributes of a 21st century learning environment. In today’s technology-rich society, it has become increasingly important to learn how to learn. Vail put it simply by declaring that learning must be a way of being (1996).

Behaviorism plays a role in learning how to use technology today.  It must be altered slightly to help us adapt to the increasing changes.

La andadura de la educación bilingüe en España comenzó hace aproximadamente una década en la Comunidad de Madrid, que en el próximo curso contará con unos 181.000 alumnos matriculados en 494 centros públicos bilingües (359 colegios y 135 institutos).
