Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom

The answer: in more ways than you could imagine. While Skype was not designed as an educational tool, it’s quickly becoming one as teachers discover the many ways it enriches their lessons and the lives of their students. Even something as simple as hosting a guest speaker through a video call can add excitement to a lesson.

As with any tech tool, it can seem daunting to introduce this into your classroom at first. If you don’t know where to start, try one of these five creative ideas.

Microsoft recently showcased a new Skype feature that allows for real-time, two-way, voice translation! This feature will make the Skype Cultural Exchange even more extensible and will allow those who use Skype for non-native language acquisition to have in-depth conversations, in their own languages, about their progress and issues in their learning.

Las aplicaciones de la web 2.0 y su aplicación en las aulas.

 

La Web 2.0 ha dado el impulso definitivo a educadores y estudiantes hacia una educación más participativa, colaborativa, una educación 2.0, de la que forman parte las tecnologías y la colaboración. Con los actuales medios tecnológicos cada uno de los miembros que lo componen tiene una mayor accesibilidad a la información, lo que permite aportar nuevos puntos de vista que enriquecen la relación y contribuyen a construir un conocimiento nuevo, cooperativo, adaptado a las necesidades y particularidades de cada grupo, que con toda probabilidad serán diferentes a las del curso anterior.

Un ejemplo claro seria la plataforma de YouTube que es un sitio audio visual donde te puedes apoyar buscando un sin fin de información pero siendo atractiva por la forma que es en video, pero no solo es obtener si no también compartir para otros usuarios.

YouTube se encuentran a la disponibilidad del público millones de vídeos constituyendo la mayor biblioteca multimedia del mundo alimentada por el usuario quien se registra de manera gratuita, no es necesario registrarse para ver los vídeos pero sí para tener su entorno personalizado, suscribirse a canales de información o subir sus propios vídeos. También  es una  herramienta de aprendizaje ya que  muy útil en las aulas pues permiten la divulgación del trabajo desarrollado en la escuela. La posibilidad de administración en grupo contribuye a favorecer el trabajo colaborativo, pero a la vez insta a crear y fortalecer el liderazgo de profesores y alumnos. Asimismo, esta herramienta en manos de los docentes sirve para acercarse a los estudiantes, al contener la potencialidad de convertirse en una sala de clases funcional.

 

Las redes sociales son herramientas útiles para que un grupo de personas puedan potenciar su comunicación, sentirse parte de una comunidad y cooperar entre ellas en tareas comunes. Estas características pueden hacer que su uso sea conveniente en entornos educativos, con el fin de potenciar la motivación y la participación del alumnado en el proceso de aprendizaje, la interacción y la colaboración e intercambio de información,

 Otra herramienta es el FACEBOOK siendo una aplicación que hoy en día todos la tienen, pero esta no se puede usar solo para chismes o socializar sino también compartir información de aprendizaje y en ella incluir profesores dando tareas, instrucciones y compartir muchas cosas para un nuevo aprendizaje pero funcional para la educación los alumnos.

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Tools, Tech and education | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Students Need Professional Learning Networks, Too

Learning to create, manage and promote a professional learning network (PLN) will soon become, if it’s not already, one of the most necessary and sought after skills for a global citizen, and as such, must become a prominent feature of any school curriculum.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, July 8, 2014 1:27 AM

Collaboration can be both a formal structure for learning activity but also an underpinning framework for engagement and fostering life-long learning.  Learning networks are part the new learning ecosystem and should be recognised and supported.
