The uncertain future of handwriting

The uncertain future of handwriting | eflclassroom | Scoop.it

Can't remember the last time I used a pen.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, November 13, 11:43 AM

Is it the end of handwriting? I recall a group of English teachers angrily predicting the end of writing as we know it IF they allowed word processors into the mix.

Today's News: REAL or FAKE? - ISTE

Today's News: REAL or FAKE? - ISTE | eflclassroom | Scoop.it

"At a time when misinformation and fake news spread like wildfire online, the critical need for media literacy education has never been more pronounced. The evidence is in the data:

- 80% of middle schoolers mistake sponsored content for real news.
- 3 in 4 students can’t distinguish between real and fake news on Facebook.
- Fewer than 1 in 3 students are skeptical of biased news sources."

7 Techniques for Mining Vocabulary - Anthony Teacher.com

7 Techniques for Mining Vocabulary - Anthony Teacher.com | eflclassroom | Scoop.it
Update: since writing this, I have learned of a few new tools that I have yet to try out. They are listed at the end of the post. Selecting vocabulary to focus on from a text is not always as simple as reading the text and picking out words. It’s hard to determine the frequencies and relevance of words just from reading. So, I’d like to share several methods I use – often in conjunction – to decide what vocabulary I want my students to focus on. To Pre-Teach or Not To Pre-Teach? Whether or not to pre-teach vocabulary is a somewhat contentious issue. I leave it up to the teacher and their context to decide what is right. In my own context, and in my own view, I mostly pre-teach, or pre-expose students to vocabulary. This is because I deal with intensive reading which involves challenging texts that include difficult vocabulary. I want my students to go into their readings armed with enough vocabulary so that they do not feel completely overwhelmed.
