Practical English Usage - The App!

Practical English Usage - The App! | Teaching Teenagers | Scoop.it

Practical English Usage by Michael Swan was one of the first books I ever bought when I started learning to teach. It's one of the few that I still keep on my shelf and probably the one that I have most often consulted, especially in those early years as a classroom teacher when I was having to field constant grammar questions from my enthusiastic students - who I suspected knew much more about the rules of grammar than I did.

ESL Teacher Training in 3D Virtual Worlds

ESL Teacher Training in 3D Virtual Worlds | Teaching Teenagers | Scoop.it

Although language learning in 3D Virtual Worlds (VWs) has become a focus of recent research, little is known about the knowledge and skills teachers need to acquire to provide effective task-based instruction in 3D VWs and the type of teacher training that best prepares instructors for such an endeavor. This study employs a situated learning approach to teacher training and explores what online teaching skills emerge in the process of collaborative situated learning, how these skills develop, and whether collaborative situated learning is an effective method of training instructors to teach in 3D VWs.

Corrective Feedback : User the language power tools to process your assignments

Corrective Feedback : User the language power tools to process your assignments | Teaching Teenagers | Scoop.it

Teachers sometimes hesitate to assign writing tasks because of the correction work it creates. However, students benefit from frequent writing practice and the corrective feedback they receive. One solution is for teachers to work longer hours. Another is to find ways to integrate automatic corrective feedback into second language pedagogy.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Teaching Teenagers | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

gosto da premissa que tecnologia não endereça/resolve necessidades emocionais, básicas na pirâmide aqui ilustrada.


A hierarquia tecnológica de segurança, sociabilização, cognição, estética, etc é um excelente passo a passo para utilização da tecnologia como ferramenta de aprendizagem.
