Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | Vocabulary Activities | Scoop.it

In this research paper Graham Hall and Guy Cook explore teacher attitudes to own-language use in the classroom. They conducted a global survey and interviews with practising teachers.
They found evidence of widespread own-language use within ELT, and suggest that teachers’ attitudes towards own-language use, and their classroom practices, are more complex than usually acknowledged. The findings also suggest that there is a potential gap between mainstream ELT literature and teachers’ practices on the ground.

50 Reasons It's Time For Smartphones In Every Classroom - TeachThought

50 Reasons It's Time For Smartphones In Every Classroom - TeachThought | Vocabulary Activities | Scoop.it

"To be clear–learning can happen in the absence of technology. Integrated poorly, technology can subdue, distract, stifle, and obscure the kind of personal interactions between learner, content, peer, and performance that lead to learning results.

 

But increasingly we live in a world where technology is deeply embedded into everything we do. Thinking about it simply in terms of “digital literacy” puts you about 5 years behind the curve. It’s really much more than that–less about being connected, and more about being mobile.

 

There will be growing pains, and I’m sure educators that have brought in BYOD programs into their school can come up with 50 reasons it won’t work. But most of those 50 are a product of the continued poor fit that exists between schools and communities–the system and the humans it serves."

Guest Editorial: Current advances in digital learning technologies | Vocabulary Activities | Scoop.it

During the past years, the increased interest for applying digital technologies aiming to improve learning and teaching has led to the evolution of the research discipline of Technology-enhanced Learning (TeL). Typically, Technology-enhanced Learning refers to a transformative movement in learning and teaching that exploits technological advances for offering learning experiences, which are not possible to be organized in existing formal educational settings.

Being present- A critique of online education | Vocabulary Activities | Scoop.it

Too many online enthusiasts sell the new generation of students short by arguing that they can only learn if they are being entertained or if learning is an exciting, self-paced activity. Yet, we still need to teach people to concentrate and sustain their attention when things may get a little boring or difficult. Not all education should be fast-paced and visually stimulating; rather, people have to learn how to focus and stick with difficult and challenging tasks.
