Grammar Gamble - online quizzes

Grammar Gamble - online quizzes | TELT | Scoop.it

Discrete multiple choice questions on sentence-level grammar: choose the correct version of one sentence, or identify grammatical features, then decide how much you're willing to bet.  

 

The set I tested was probably suitable for lower-intermediate/intermediate learners.  Feedback is immediate, after each answer, but shows the correct answer without an explicit right or wrong evaluation. (You need to check your total score for this information.)

Shona Whyte's insight:

Decontextualised explicit grammar practice, but may have its place in your teaching and be more fun than usual.

Obviously very decontextualised explicit grammar practice, which may have its place in your learning programme and may be more fun than usual.

Socio-constructivisme, base théorique des pédagogies actives et collaboratives

Socio-constructivisme, base théorique des pédagogies actives et collaboratives | TELT | Scoop.it
Ce mouvement pédagogique est à la base des principes du social learning. Mais de quoi s’agit il ?

En réalité, il font suite aux travaux de Piaget, et démontrent que le processus d’assimilation/accommodation est en réalité assuré par une médiation sociale dans laquelle l’apprenant est co-auteur dans l’acquisition de la connaissance. Ainsi, l’environnement social, affectif, émotionnel joue un rôle primordial dans le développement cognitif de l’enfant et de l’adulte. Dans cette perspective, il est important de mettre en avant le fait que les acteurs de la construction et du développement intellectuel de l’individu sont bien évidemment les parents et les professeurs mais également les autres élèves de la classe.

Ainsi le processus d’apprentissage comporte plusieurs dimensions : la capacité cognitive de l’individu en terme de développement neuronal par exemple mais aussi la richesse des interactions sociales dont il pourra bénéficier. Evidemment, et nous n’éludons pas la difficulté ici, il n’est pas simple pour l’enseignant d’organiser au sein de sa classe des situations pédagogiques qui favoriseront ces interactions.

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories [Infographic]

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories [Infographic] | TELT | Scoop.it
Do you know the actual theories of learning? A learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn, helping us understand this inherently complex process.

Via Gust MEES, Alazne González, Luciana Viter, Inna Piankovska
Shona Whyte's insight:

Useful for key ideas in learning theory, though perhaps more a demonstration of someone's constructivist/connectivist thoughts on learning/teaching than a useful end product for others.  (Constructiorism => constructionism).
