Top 10 Tech Tools: An Interactive Graphic

Top 10 Tech Tools: An Interactive Graphic | TELT | Scoop.it

"With so many free and user friendly tech tools available for teachers, it's hard to know where to begin to put together a list of the best tools for teaching and learning so I decided to take a look at my own resources to determine which tools I use the most. Rather than posting another running list of tools, features and uses, I decided to present the information visually, through an interactive ThingLink graphic. I used the new colored nubbins available to make it easier for visitors to explore areas of interest more efficiently. " - Susan Oxnevad

Even though "social network" has became a trending topic in our daily life, it was there since the very beginning of computing. The form of information exchange maybe different, but end result was pretty much the same.

Patrice Leroux:

"La génération C (communiquer, collaborer, créer) est celle des moins de 20 ans en 2012. Hyper-connectée, "elle a besoin d'échanger pour apprendre". Cependant, on se rend de plus en plus compte que même chez les 30, 40 ou 50 ans et plus, la mise en réseau, le partage et la collaboration (en milieu professionnel) donnent d'excellents résultats (et permettent l'innovation)."

A personal philosophy of principled eclecticism for language teaching

A personal philosophy of principled eclecticism for language teaching | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

Scott Douglas, assistant professor at the University of British Columbia, teaches English as an Additional Language (EAL), particularly EAP (English for Academic Purposes).

 

He's taken the time to write up a personal philosophy of education, detailing how and why he teaches the way he does.  He covers constructivism, Freire and Krashen, as well as critical thinking.

 

An interesting read, and a useful exercise for individual professional development as well as for teacher training classes.

Hack(ing) School(ing): Make students curators

Hack(ing) School(ing): Make students curators | TELT | Scoop.it
Shona Whyte:
Leslie M-B is assistant professor of history in Idaho and has this thought-provoking post on using collaborative digital projects to improve the teaching and learning of history:

"To move beyond the era of content standards, we need to acknowledge—and convey to our teacher candidates—that one need not be an expert in a content area in order to teach it.  We already see this attitude in English classes, where the  literary canon has been in flux for some time. As an English teacher, I wouldn’t need to be an acknowledged expert on, or even a specialist in, Huckleberry Finn to teach it to junior high school students. Instead, I’d need to know how a novel works; I’d need to know how plot, characters, conflict, and other literary devices combine.  Knowing the history is necessary, too, but information about what was going on in the U.S. at the time Twain wrote his novel is only an internet search away.  I need not have learned it at some fixed point way back in tenth grade and filed it away until I required it in my own classroom teaching."

Much of this is of course directly applicable to the language classroom.

How to turn students into curators.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 6, 2015 3:14 AM

We often ask our students to create annotated bibliographies, and this focuses on their capacity to evaluate and make decisions about the validity, reliability and relevance of sources they have found. using Scoop.it, we can ask them to do much the same thing, but they will publish their ideas for an audience, and will also be able to provide and use peer feedback to enhance and tighten up their thinking. This is relevant to any curriculum area. Of course it is dependent on schools being able to access any social media, but rather than thinking about what is impossible, perhaps we could start thinking about what is possible and lobbying for change.

TEDxWarwick - Doug Belshaw: The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies

From the website:

 

"Dr. Doug Belshaw is a Researcher/Analyst at JISC Advance where he researches and advises on issues around open education and innovation. A former teacher and senior leader with experience of all sectors, Doug is also co-kickstarter of Purpos/ed which aims to encourage and sustain debate around the purpose(s) of education. Doug recently completed his doctorate on digital and new literacies which, as an open practitioner, he has shared online since he began writing it."

 

Shona Whyte:

Very interesting presentation, 18 minute TED format, Doug Belshaw follows Stephen Downes in taking remixing and memes seriously and argues for a progressive rather than sequential approach to developing digital literacy, starting from the intersection between learners' interests and wider digital issues or needs.  Much to reflect on for teachers of languages with technology, not least a possible parallel between acquiring language skills and acquiring digital skills ...

"Keep the rabbit hole of the internet open by honoring discovery."

 

Shona Whyte:

I've been curating for almost a year and only just discovered the Curator's Code.  I may have to plead the Barbarossa defence: "the code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules" (Pirates of the Caribbean).

 

This site is beautifully put together, highly persuasive, and full of good sense.  There's a bookmarklet for your toolbar to help you attribute creation and/or discovery.

Les conditions optimales d'une intégration réussie des TIC en classe - Thot Cursus

Les conditions optimales d'une intégration réussie des TIC en classe - Thot Cursus | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

Article de Christine Vauffrey (novembre 2011) qui résume les travaux des chercheurs canadiens Guy Béliveau et Christian Barette pour montrer que

"l'impact des TICE sur les apprentissages et les résultats des élèves est étroitement corrélé à l'intention pédagogique qui sous-tend leur utilisation et au niveau d'intensité de cette utilisation, le but étant de rendre les élèves plus actifs et plus autonomes dans leurs apprentissages."

 

Ces travaux fournissent aux enseignants

"des outils permettant tout à la fois d'optimiser l'utilisation des TIC en classe, quelle que soit la posture pédagogique privilégiée, et de se diriger vers une pédagogie plus largement inspirée du socioconstructivisme, cette dernière ayant fait la preuve de son efficacité."
