ELTEA call: innovative writing in ELT

ELTED Journal celebrated its 20th anniversary on 24 June 2015 by moving to this new website and sending out a new call for contributions for a special issue, on Innovative Writing in English Language Teacher Education and Development.

English Language Teacher Education and Development (ELTED) Journal - ISSN 1365-3741 - is an open access peer-reviewed journal for the worldwide ELT community which is produced by the  Language Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LLTA) Research Group of the Centre for Applied Linguistics, University of Warwick. It seeks to provide a medium for the exchange of ideas and information on theoretical and applied issues pertaining to English language teacher education. The journal is targeted at all those involved in English language teacher education and development worldwide, for whom, at present, there are few published journals dealing specifically with English language teacher education and development.

Such debate about the place and purpose of online searching in learning and assessments is not new. But rather than thinking of ways to prevent students from cheating or plagiarising in their assessed pieces of work, maybe our obsession with the “authenticity” of their coursework or assessment is missing another important educational point.

Solving problems through synthesising large amounts of information, often collaboratively, and engaging in exploratory and problem-solving pursuits (rather than just memorising facts and dates) are key skills in the 21st century, information-based economy.

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
Informational technology needs to be holistically integrated into our learning environments.

The integration of information technology into our unique learning environments can be greatly enhanced if we apply constructivist approaches. Such approaches could include, but are not limited to discovery learning, inquiry based learning, play-based learning and making. But they also include listening, reflecting, and taking the time to process. Essentially, we want our learners to become great thinkers. We want learners to take an active role in the learning process and move away from the passive regurgitation of information being passed from a teacher to a student. Effective infusion of information technology into our learning environments is an excellent way to achieve this.

In our world, information technology is not just a means to an end. It more about the information and how we use it that is the most important. How to find it, how to process it, how to use it, and how to build on it. The technology we use facilitates and re-shapes this use of information in many new ways. For instance, no longer are we following learning in a linear fashion, say, based on a textbook. Rather, we are working in flexible frameworks where learners can focus on big ideas, but follow their learning along multiple paths happening all at once in the learning environment.

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
Ambiverts have introverted and extroverted traits, but neither trait is dominant. As a result, they have more balanced, or nuanced, personalities. They aren’t the folks yammering your ear off. Nor are they the totally silent ones happily ensconced in the corner.

Ambiverts move between being social or being solitary, speaking up or listening carefully with greater ease than either extroverts or introverts. “It is like they’re bilingual,” says Daniel Pink, a business book author and co-host of Crowd Control, a TV series on human behavior, who has studied ambiversion. “They have a wider range of skills and can connect with a wider range of people in the same way someone who speaks English and Spanish can.”

How “Playing With Technology” Led Me to the Job of My Dreams

How “Playing With Technology” Led Me to the Job of My Dreams | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

"What an awesome TED Talk! The description is: “What happens when you’re looking for a job in the middle of a recession? Stop doing what people tell you to do. Charlie Hoehn talks about making up your own rules and how he started only working on things he wanted to pursue and how it changed his life.” I completely agree with Charlie’s premise that we don’t find the work we love with a college degree. We pigeon-hole ourselves into a niche where we have to search on Monster.com for a job, and then despise the search results. Or we write on our resumes “proficient in Microsoft Office” and then wonder why no one cares."

"You’ve heard the term “entrepreneur.” You’ve probably even heard the term “edupreneur.” But do you know what the term “teacherpreneur” means? As you can probably intuit, “teacherpreneurs” are teachers who create their own educational product or service to fix a problem they or they colleagues have encountered in the classroom. This is distinct from an edupreneur, which can be interpreted to mean any entrepreneur working in the education space – teacher or not."

Learning from direct experience can be more effective if coupled with reflection-that is, the intentional attempt to synthesize, abstract, and articulate the key lessons taught by experience.

Aprender com a experiência direta pode ser mais eficaz se conjugada com a reflexão, isto é, a tentativa intencional de sintetizar, abstrato, e articular as principais lições ensinadas pela experiência.


Refletindo sobre o que foi aprendido torna a experiência mais produtiva.


Reflexão constrói sua confiança na capacidade para atingir um objetivo (ou seja, auto-eficácia), que por sua vez se traduz em taxas mais elevadas de aprendizado.

Nestled within the New-Age-y sounding concept of “noncognitive factors” are fairly concrete examples of what parents and educators should and shouldn’t do to prepare students for the rigors of college and their careers. Gleaned from research into brain development and human behavior, a toolkit is emerging on how to best respond to and encourage students’ grit, persistence, and the ability to learn from one’s mistakes.
