MFaculty's curator insight, June 21, 5:22 AM

Converting your video to a playable file that you can carry with you on a USB drive can really up your game when teaching in a classroom where you may not have Internet access. 

 

This online application will 'help' IF you take a few minutes the day before your class and do a little prep work. Too often we become accustomed to having technology work flawlessly and fail to bring a plan 'B' with us. 

 

A little preparation will go a long way, plus you'll always have a plan 'B'!

The basic cognitive skills needed by previous generations are no longer enough. Students in the conceptual age must also master the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, including creation, metacognition and self-actualization.

“It will require an upgrade to our curriculum, new instructional methods and materials, a new profile of a global graduate and an open mind,” say Smith, Chavez and Seaman.

For ideas about how to re-create your classroom for the conceptual age, including potential classroom setups, blended learning models to mix and match, and a curriculum design process, take a look at the infographic

Applying iPad Apps in the Classroom: Goal? Language Proficiency! | The FLTmag

Applying iPad Apps in the Classroom: Goal? Language Proficiency! | The FLTmag | Websites for Blended EFL | Scoop.it
With the growing interest in using iPads for teaching, the inclusion of technology as part of the 21st century skills, and the availability of iPads in classrooms, it becomes more and more important to create language lessons that make effective use of the device. Often teachers and learners alike are overwhelmed by the new technology and the wealth of apps that are available. When searching the Apple Store, for example, several language learning apps focus on grammar, vocabulary drills, and games in a variety of languages. However, it is not the objective of this article to highlight apps for grammar and verb drills. Instead, it is the goal of this article to present a sample of free-of-charge apps that were not necessarily created for language instruction but that can be used in a creative way to encourage critical thinking, enhance language proficiency, and integrate into existing curricula and lessons.

How to Grow a Classroom Culture That Supports Blended Learning - Mind/Shift

How to Grow a Classroom Culture That Supports Blended Learning - Mind/Shift | Websites for Blended EFL | Scoop.it

"It all started in 1987, when I got a grant from the State of California. The state sent me eight Macintosh computers, never asking if I knew how to use them, and when they arrived I had no idea how to even turn them on. I realized then that I was going to fail if I didn’t get some help quickly. I looked around for colleagues who could help, but none of them had any idea. Our school had no IT department. So I took a leap of faith and confessed to my students that I had no idea how to use the new computers and that I needed help. This turned out to be a stroke of good luck, even though I did not see it that way at the time. It was the beginning of my new teaching methodology."
