Marzano's 9 Effective Instructional Strategies (Infographic)

Marzano's 9 Effective Instructional Strategies (Infographic) | TESOL | Scoop.it

"Effective schools make a big difference in student achievement. Effective leadership makes a positive difference, too. Effective teachers, however, directly impact student learning and achievement. It’s been shown that teachers who have a large repertoire of effective instructional strategies teach differently."

A literacy-rich environment in classrooms and schools, for example, is an important K-12 foundation to support and extend effective instruction. And, effective vocabulary instruction (here, here, here, and here, too) is an integral part of a comprehensive literacy framework and supports student learning and achievement. Building a common language educators is also important, though frequently lacking. A common language helps teachers, coaches, and administrators communicate more easily and specifically around instructional strategies associated with literacy instruction, educational initiatives, and the Common Core State Standards

Noam Chomsky on Technology & Learning

Noam Chomsky on Technology & Learning | TESOL | Scoop.it

As far as technology itself and education is concerned, technology is basically neutral. It’s like a hammer. The hammer doesn’t care whether you use it to build a house or whether on torture, using it to crush somebody’s skull, the hammer can do either.

Tecnología y aprrendizaje.

Mindful use of each tool is indispensable in our learning and education. Only in schools, do we worry about mandating and prescribing a particular tool.

Rosetta Stone costs $500? Thank you, no. There are too many free language-learning resources on the Internet to warrant that sort of expense. Here are just a few that will cost you nothing but time and effort.

It's useful to see what other people have been doing with online language learning courses. Evaluating the theory underpinning the teaching and learning is also a useful exercise.

"Hot Apps for HOTS is an excellent guide packed full of apps and activities to support higher order thinking skills (HOTS).

Ruby Rennie Panter's curator insight, January 20, 2014 3:55 AM

Nik Peachey: "

Getting started with new technologies can seem intimidating and demanding. As teachers, we need to retain a degree of control and responsibility for what happens in our classroom, as well as our students’ respect, so trying out new things that we don’t feel confident about can be very risky.

If you aren’t feeling confident, there will be plenty of suggestions for how to start off small by suggesting activities that students can do outside of the classroom for homework. This takes some of the pressure off you and should help you to build your confidence with the technology.

If you are new to technology, I would encourage you to be honest with your students and tell them that you are trying something new and it may not work. Involve them in the process and get their feedback and advice. Many students may have a wider knowledge of technology than their teachers, so draw on their knowledge, but remember that there is also a linguistic and educational purpose for using technology and this is where you will be able to help and support your students."
