Bookstagram: Love it or Hate it? | ESL | Scoop.it
Instagram is taking over our social media time, there’s no doubt about it. It’s one of the most popular apps on the appstore, and beat Twitter out for members back in 2015 and still manages to be in the top ten social media sites in 2016. But when did Bookstagram take hold of the popular…

"Okay, So I Plagiarized My Assignment. Big Deal!"

"Okay, So I Plagiarized My Assignment.  Big Deal!" | ESL | Scoop.it
Dear Student,

Really?  That’s your reaction?  It speaks volumes. When you enrolled in this course did you even glance at the syllabus which contains the student code of conduct?  Obviously not.  Here are some things that you should think about. 

Plagiarism has been the bane of educators for decades.  Nowadays all students have to do to complete an assignment is lift the information right off the web and dress it up a bit.  A simple keyword search and in seconds you're in business.

Plagiarists have no respect for their peers. While your buddies slave away at creating original work through tedious research, analysis and writing, you’re there right behind them pilfering what they've written.  Alter a few words here, add a few more there and walla!  You have your content.

5 Things Teachers Want from PD

We rarely accept “sit and get” instruction as ideal for our students. So why is it still the most common form of professional development for teachers across the country?

Formación docente relevante, interactiva, liderada por alguien que comprenda su experiencia, sostenida en el tiempo y que se apoya en una concepción del docente como profesional.  Así - según Karen Johnson - es la formación que desean los docentes hoy ... y que rara vez reciben! Por mi parte, como docente coincido plenamente. Como formadora docente, ¡tomo nota y me comprometo a trabajar para ello!

Why Research Fails in the Classroom

Why Research Fails in the Classroom | ESL | Scoop.it

The best thing to do is listen to the people who are closest to students. Some of the most effective solutions come from faculty members or instructors. Working with educators this closely throughout the formulation, execution and evaluation of research and product development is the surest way to make research and tools work in real classrooms.

Common Misconceptions of Teaching with Technology

Common Misconceptions of Teaching with Technology | ESL | Scoop.it
All of the above misconceptions promote a sense of fear among educators and impede the adaption of educational technology. But we can’t turn a blind eye to the fact that technology is going to pervade into every aspects of education and changes, both subtle and disruptive, are inevitable. Teachers, technologists and other stakeholders such as government should work together and make the best use of technology to improve teaching and learning and prepare our children for the future.

Defining Critical Thinking

Defining Critical Thinking | ESL | Scoop.it
Everyone thinks; it is our nature to do so. But much of our thinking, left to itself, is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed or down-right prejudiced. Yet the quality of our life and that of what we produce, make, or build depends precisely on the quality of our thought. Shoddy thinking is costly, both in money and in quality of life. Excellence in thought, however, must be systematically cultivated.

Assessing Digital Literacy: Standards, Tools, & Techniques — Emerging Education Technologies | ESL | Scoop.it
Digital literacy is like any other core curricular subject. It is no longer an option, just as reading and math are not. Students must be digitally competent if they are to be successful in school and in their professional and personal lives as adults. Indeed, 3 out of 4 of the best jobs for many years to come will involve digital expertise.

John Dalziel's curator insight, July 28, 2016 2:53 AM
With social media integrating into every aspect of our personal lives, it’s no surprise that it’s entering our teaching environments. I've seen some Education Practitioners, and their learners, use social media in unique ways to enhance learning, crowd-source ideas and have a positive impact on teaching and learning. 
It's also important to raise awareness so that they avoid landing in hot water because they don't know how to navigate the cross-section of personal and professional use. 
It’s therefore extremely important for current and future practitioners to be trained in social media and digital literacy as many don't know how to use social media effectively to support learning. 
This helpful guide provides Educational Stakeholders with the tools needed to not only navigate Pinterest, but use the social platform as a powerful learning tool.

Critical Thinking Exercises That Will Blow Your Students’ Minds

Critical Thinking Exercises That Will Blow Your Students’ Minds | ESL | Scoop.it

Real critical thinking exercises seek truth. It takes daring and independent thought to stray from conventional thinking and discover truths previously unfound. It could be said that critical thinking is at the heart of dispelling great myths about our world and changing the way a society views and acts in their world.

elearnspace › Adaptive Learners, Not Adaptive Learning | ESL | Scoop.it
Basically, we have to shift education from focusing mainly on the acquisition of knowledge (the central underpinning of most adaptive learning software today) to the development of learner states of being (affect, emotion, self-regulation, goal setting, and so on). Adaptive learners are central to the future of work and society, whereas adaptive learning is more an attempt to make more efficient a system of learning that is no longer needed.
