Study Educational Technology in English Language Teaching Online

Study Educational Technology in English Language Teaching Online | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

I’ve long believed that teacher development, especially when it comes to technology, is best done online and over a longer period than can be accomplished with face to face training courses. Online study gives teachers the opportunity to try out new ideas with their students, think things through, and reflect on what they have learned. Working online, they can also grow within a community of teachers from around the world, learn from each other and share their learning experiences.

 

These principles have been at the heart of two new courses I have been developing in partnership with CELT Athens. I will be tutoring these courses from September 2012, so follow the link if you would like to find out more.

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

It is our role as teachers to help students develop the skills to problem solve independently and collaboratively use 21st-century skills while not relying on technology to do all of the thinking for them. Just because these students are digital natives, does not mean that they do not need guidance to navigate the digital world–both in terms of learning how to discern important and relevant information from a large swath of data, and also to be able to inquire and solve problems that take time, thought, and energy.
