Edcamps: The ‘Unconferences,’ Where Teachers Teach Themselves - The New York Times

Edcamps: The ‘Unconferences,’ Where Teachers Teach Themselves - The New York Times | eflclassroom | Scoop.it
Perhaps the best known of many so-called unconference models, Edcamps arose out of the idea that teachers, just like their students, need “voice and choice” to help them learn. Anyone who shows up to these free events can suggest or lead a session, and participants are invited to “vote with their feet” about which to attend.

Or, as Kisha Slaughter put it in Newark that morning: “Edcamps are more of a conversation than a presentation.”

Ana Maria Montañez's curator insight, April 24, 7:42 PM
I found this article really interesting and meaningful to my professional development in view of the fact that grammar is one of the most difficult language features that students have to deal with. Grammar checkers provide student with a good opportunity to realize their grammatical mistakes during the writing process while at the same time they enhance self-monitoring skills and language proficiency. Three grammar checkers are presented throughout this article: Grammarly, Grammar and Spelling Checker and Language Tool. Among the advantages of these online platforms have we can say that they help, both, students and teachers to check grammar and spelling in different social networks and platforms, they provide suggestions to improve students’ own writing style, and finally they find many errors that a simple spell checker cannot detect. From my personal point of view, these online tools that enhance the quality of grammar should not be overused neither by teachers nor by students since this practice can diminish the ability to be self-aware of grammatical structures, syntax and patterns of the target language.
