Not specific to language learners, but succinct coverage of essential issues in bite-sized chunks (digital identity, copyright and plagiarism, personal learning networks) which will be useful to teachers and learners alike.

An online course to help you understand better how to use technology to enhance your teaching practice. Aimed at higher education, but surely worth a try for those in other learning stages.

This Harry Potter Clip Is Scary Close To Real-World Education | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it
A Harry Potter clip is frightening close to resembling a real-world classroom. What do you think?

Carmenne K. Thapliyal's insight:

I've always thought of this, but this clip is really good... "How's theory supposed to prepare [students] for what's out there?"

Hilarious! Just think of those dangers that collaborative, communicative, ICT & 2.0-apps based teaching implies... Voldemort is lurking outside the classroom door... beware!!

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it

Writing used to be strictly an in-school activity. Now, kids do 40 percent of their writing outside of school. Called “life writing,” young adults’ social writing spans texts, tweets, social media, and blogs -- and all of it’s making kids more literate.

Histoire de recadrer les pessismistes et passéistes: l'écriture est plus que jamais vivace!

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, November 1, 2013 4:28 PM

I can't believe kids are doing more than 40% of their writing outside of school. "Life writing" may make grammar teachers cringe, but at least students are engaging with others and sharing ideas in this format.

Catherine Byrd Bushby's curator insight, June 21, 2014 10:13 PM

That's why we need to bring social writing into school.

Don't Be A Fool: Be Sure To Make Back Up Files [Infographic]

Don't Be A Fool: Be Sure To Make Back Up Files [Infographic] | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it
Did you know only 10% of adults keep back up files of their valuable content? It's worrying and needs to be corrected. Consult this infographic for help.

Carmenne K. Thapliyal's insight:

Yes, backing up data is certainly expremely important, but it is often very time-consuming. I tend to send an email to myself with the vital files so that I don't lose the data.

It's ONLY when YOU lost YOUR data that YOU will be sure how important it was, so BETTER making a backup up from the beginning! It's ONLY a reflex to remember...
