Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH

Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

Technology Is Changing How Students Learn, Teachers Say

Technology Is Changing How Students Learn, Teachers Say | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

Scholars who study the role of media in society say no long-term studies have been done that adequately show how and if student attention span has changed because of the use of digital technology. But there is mounting indirect evidence that constant use of technology can affect behavior, particularly in developing brains, because of heavy stimulation and rapid shifts in attention.

Developing writing skills: A news report

Developing writing skills: A news report | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

This lesson takes a process approach to developing writing skills. It is staged so that students are guided through the processes of collecting information and deciding how they will structure it within the text before they begin to write. They are then guided through the process of drafting, editing and redrafting the text to produce a final copy.
