#ELT chat: how to participate

#ELT chat: how to participate | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

What is #ELTChat?
#ELTchat started in September 2010 when a group of #ELTchat professionals began to use twitter to discuss topics of interest to English Language Teachers. It began with the aim of creating a freely available social network for ELT professionals offering mutual support and opportunities for Continuous Professional Development.

 

Now, every Wednesday at 12pm and 21.00pm, ELT teachers from all over the world log into their Twitter account and for one hour hold an online discussion on a topic they have selected.

"We need different, not better..."

"We need different, not better..." | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

* We don’t need better assessments; we need different assessments that help us understand students as learners and constructors of their own ongoing education instead of knowers of information and narrow skills.
* We don’t need better teachers; we need different teachers who see their roles as master learners first and content guides or experts second.
* We don’t need better schools; we need different schools that function as communities of inquiry and learning instead of delivery systems for a highly proscribed, traditional curriculum.

 

… the idea of a fully networked, progressive learning environment would for the vast majority constitute *different* and would require us... to redefine the future.

Personal Learning Networks for Educators: 10 Tips

Personal Learning Networks for Educators: 10 Tips | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
I often begin my workshop on personal learning networks (PLN) for educators by asking these questions: Who is in your learning network? Who do you learn from on a regular basis? Who do you turn to for your own professional development?
