Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 23, 2013 3:49 AM

This is an one example of shared practice i.e. using QR codes in the classroom. As with any technological innovation you don't have to use them and certainly don't want technical issues hindering the learning process, but some tools really do help to enrich this process. If used effectively I think QR codes are one of those that can engage and motivate  students, which is a positive benefit in itself, but they can also be implemented for inquiry and problem based activities which are situated in the area of higher-order thinking skills.

De recién utilicé los comentarios de voz y la calidad de retroalimentación era mucho más grande. Pude describir el problema y dar retroalimentación explícita o dar pistas a que necesitaban mejorar. Fue muy eficaz y sencillo.

How about using this for a real nice change in an integrated, four-skills class? Listening and speaking could be fantastically integrated to reading and wrting with Tell me More.

El uso de las TIC en la preservación de las lenguas originarias de Latinoamérica.-

El uso de las TIC en la preservación de las lenguas originarias de Latinoamérica.- | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Habitualmente nos resulta fácil definir por qué o para qué aprendemos una lengua extranjera: para viajar; para negociar (chino); para manejar vocabulario técnico o informático (inglés); para estudios específicos como la filosofía (alemán), etc. Sin embargo, cuando nos planteamos aprender una lengua originaria, los motivos pueden no ser los mismos.

Una primera mirada hace pensar en motivos relacionados con la comunidad, la familia, la tradición.  Consultando en centros universitarios de idiomas, aparecen otras razones: moda, viajes, interés en interactuar con “otros”, para la equidad en la educación, etc. El interés por estudiar lenguas originarias se ha expandido fuertemente en los últimos 5 años. Entonces, la gente quiere recuperar las lenguas originarias, los gobiernos quieren preservarlas. ¿Por qué no emplear las tecnologías para ello?

Hice una actividad utilizando la herramienta "Tagxedo" en mi salón de clase. Los estudiantes crearon su propio Tagxedo usando palabras que describen su vida. En clase, los estudiantes presentaron su Tagxedo a otra persona usando oraciones completas en español. La actividad funcionó muy bien con mis estudiantes de 201. Mis estudiantes dijeron que les gustó la herramienta y que es fácil y divertido usar.
