Rethinking the ICT Staff audit in 2012.

Rethinking the ICT Staff audit in 2012. | Tech4LTeachers | Scoop.it

So what's the point in the traditional ICT staff audit? Do we really care if the HOD of Art is competent in databases? Or is her use of blogs, apps and smartphones a more relevant skillset for 2012? If you see the future of ICT in terms of mobile devices connected to the cloud and used in collaboration, what are the skills a teacher really needs?

Developing Student Self Assessment Skills - Faculty Focus | Faculty Focus | Tech4LTeachers | Scoop.it

What we’re talking about here is the fact that students do need to develop self assessment skills. They need to be able to look at their own work and with some accuracy assess its merits. That includes the work they do in our courses.

10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses

10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses | Tech4LTeachers | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've done a lot of work developing writing and redeveloping online courses and course materials. In the initial rush to get learning online many organisations got themselves a Moodle platform and then attached a whole load of PDFs and .docs, added some forums and the odd video clip and called it an online course. It's no surprise then that drop out rates for online learning courses have been so high.

I always believe that the best sites and web tools are the simplest, and this is certainly the case with Phonetizer. It's a really easy to use tool that takes and text and adds the phonetic spelling below it.

Now I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what's botherin' me
I wanna be a man, mancub yeah
And stroll right into town
I wanna be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeyin' around!

Blended Learning Product Dependencies

The rapid development of educational software is providing teachers access to digital content in a new interactive way. While the teacher remains as the core of the blended learning model, the hope of blended learning is that the technology will enable teachers to efficiently personalize instruction for each student. The goal of these tools is to provide teachers real-time data, differentiated instruction paced for each individual, and deliver various methods of curriculum interaction. The success of the blended model has strong dependance of the tools available for teachers.

Generational Divide in Education This is not a generational problem. It is a learning problem. | Tech4LTeachers | Scoop.it

"This is not a generational problem. It is a learning problem." Tom Whitby

 

... Schools need to first get their teachers and administrators to be more media literate and good digital citizens. We need to model what we teach. To be better teachers we must be better learners. To be better leaders we need to be better learners. This is not generational. Old and young alike can give up on learning. We see that every day.
