Sofia Sweeney's curator insight, November 24, 2015 6:39 PM

Probé iPadio en mi clase. Los estudiantes tenían que llamar a mi canal y dejar un mensaje en que dijeron sus planes para las vacaciones de Thanksgiving. La actividad funcionó muy bien, creo que fue una manera chévere de practicar la competencia oral. Algo muy bueno es que pueden grabarse y dejar comentarios en otras grabaciones sin abrir una cuenta. El único problema es que no hay una manera de ver quién llamó - los estudiantes tienen que introducirse cada vez. Muchos de los estudiantes se olvidaron decir su nombre, y por eso fue difícil calificar.

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School?

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School? | Zoubair ELT Community Newsletter | Scoop.it

The only rational answer to the conundrum of curiosity is to disengage our educational system from standardized testing and common curricula. Curiosity does not hold up well under intense expectation. Give agency to teachers, with the explicit message to slow down and provide students time to wonder and be curious.
