Las 7 mejores webs de libros para leer libros gratis | ELT & TICs | Scoop.it

Gracias a Internet nos pasamos el día leyendo: publicaciones en redes sociales, artículos en medios como este, noticias, etc. Hoy vamos a ir un paso más allá, recopilando las mejores webs para leer libros gratis.

Obviamente, solo hemos tenido en cuenta aquellas plataformas en las que no se vulneran los derechos de autor: o tienen autorización o son obras clásicas que ya forman parte del patrimonio.

Correct pronunciation is vital and carries over into other skills.  The visual of mouth positions for pronunciation can help with sounds not found in students' native language.

Top apps that promote Higher Order Thinking

Top apps that promote Higher Order Thinking | ELT & TICs | Scoop.it

The concept Higher Order Thinking (HOT) is fast gaining importance in modern education as it can bring in a reform in education based on learning taxonomies.

Besides, such kind of a skill underpins a kind of thinking ability in students that helps them in making maximum use of their cognitive skills. So basically students learn to analyze things beyond what they have learned. They think and proceed towards a higher level than just merely memorizing facts and applying it in return without much thinking.

Like any other skills, the Higher Order Thinking Skills too can be learned with practice. So here we have compiled a list of Apps to be used in order to develop Higher Order Thinking Skills through practice. Take a look at these Apps and understand how they could help a student in shaping their skills to promote Higher Order Thinking.

Retrieval Practice Produces More Learning than Elaborative Studying with Concept Mapping

Retrieval Practice Produces More Learning than Elaborative Studying with Concept Mapping | ELT & TICs | Scoop.it
Educators rely heavily on learning activities that encourage elaborative studying, whereas activities that require students to practice retrieving and reconstructing knowledge are used less frequently. Here, we show that practicing retrieval produces greater gains in meaningful learning than elaborative studying with concept mapping. The advantage of retrieval practice generalized across texts identical to those commonly found in science education. The advantage of retrieval practice was observed with test questions that assessed comprehension and required students to make inferences. The advantage of retrieval practice occurred even when the criterial test involved creating concept maps. Our findings support the theory that retrieval practice enhances learning by retrieval-specific mechanisms rather than by elaborative study processes. Retrieval practice is an effective tool to promote conceptual learning about science.
