MOOCs Proving Useful For Tech Skills | LearnDash | Technologies in ELT | Scoop.it

Massive open online courses (or MOOCs) have been around for a decent amount of time now. They first started becoming big with the advent of Coursera, arguably the first MOOC to receive venture capital. Since then, we see MOOCs being advertised all over, each putting their unique twist on the concept.

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technologies in ELT | Scoop.it

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

Why Teachers Should Be Trained Like Actors

Why Teachers Should Be Trained Like Actors | Technologies in ELT | Scoop.it
Teaching is a lot like acting, a high-energy, performance profession that requires a person to act as a role model. But when teachers go through training and professional development, the performance aspect of the job is rarely emphasized or taught. Acknowledging this aspect could be a missed opportunity to restructure ways teachers learn new skills and tactics.
Evelyn Izquierdo's insight:

There is no doubt that teachers develop many important skills during their teaching life, but definitely performing as actors and actresses is one of the most useful and enjoyable tasks in the classroom. Some teachers are very good at that, others need more training. This article discusses the role of performing as a teaching strategy and how being trained like actors/actresses may contribute to develop not only good academic habits but successful practices.
