Tech Tools for Teachers

Tech Tools for Teachers | TELT | Scoop.it

Some of you may be working in a technology-rich environment where you have interactive whiteboards and students have access to the internet in the classroom, or a computer lab that you can take students to. Some of you may only have a single computer in your classroom or, perhaps, like the majority of schools around the world, you may have no computer access in school at all. Whichever is the case, this series will still have something to offer you and will enable you to offer something more to your students, either in class or through the development of more motivating homework tasks that students can access outside of school.

Good place to start for all you technophobes out there.

Lyndsay's curator insight, April 3, 2013 10:29 PM

This resources is extremely valuable for educators when teaching digital technologies. It allows students to learn how to design and implement  visual programs, use a range of digital systems and use safe online communications (ACARA, 2013). It provides many explanations surrounding many available digital technologies for the classroom which is titled 'Tech Tools for Teachers' and would allow educators to effectively implement digital technologies into their planning.

Screencast Feedback for Essays on a Distance Learning MA in Professional Communication: An Action Research Project

Abstract
This action research explored the potential of audio-visual screencasting for assignment feedback on a distance learning (DL) course. A screencast is a combination of voice recording and screen capture, which can be played in any browser, like a video. Here it is used to capture a tutor’s editing and highlighting activities in a document, whilst simultaneously recording spoken feedback. Research suggests that audio-visual feedback may resolve some of the current problems with written feedback. A pilot study is reported which trialled screencasting for essay feedback on a master's level DL module at Sheffield Hallam University. Fourteen students participated and were randomly divided between two groups to receive either written or screencast feedback first. After receiving the first feedback type, students completed a short questionnaire online. The second type of feedback was then distributed to the students, who completed the same questionnaire for the second type of feedback. The results suggest that feedback is received more positively in the richer media of audiovisual screencasting and that this may encourage emotions more conducive to receiving and processing feedback and help to socialise students within the learning context by giving them a sense of belonging to the community. Simultaneous visual cues and explanations appear to help with understanding, and it is quicker to capture screencasts than it is to write feedback. However, preferences for written feedback were related to the holistic overview of a document, which could be scanned and revisited, and which was not confined to a linear delivery, nor time-limited. Audio-visualscreencasting will therefore only be adopted for formative feedback during modules, and will be structured with spoken overviews.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Learners preferred feedback via screencast.

Enseignement des langues à l’université et TIC : enjeux actuels et exemples de dispositifs : 27 mars 2013

Enseignement des langues à l’université et TIC : enjeux actuels et exemples de dispositifs : 27 mars 2013 | TELT | Scoop.it

Le secteur des langues et cultures étrangères pour les étudiants non spécialistes en langues (LANSAD, Langues pour Spécialistes d’Autres Disciplines) est au cœur des interrogations pédagogiques dans l’enseignement supérieur. Le développement des TIC pousse à réfléchir à de nouveaux dispositifs exploitant les potentialités offertes par ces technologies pour favoriser la mise en œuvre d’expériences d’apprentissage favorables à l’acquisition d’une langue.
