Foreign language is not only a useful skill, it improves your cognition and this method involves meta-cognition

José Antonio Gutiérrez Flores's curator insight, June 11, 2014 1:10 PM

Este es un sitio  muy  útil para el auto-aprendizaje, sólo se necesita estar motivado. Puedes elegir entre una gran variedad de contenidos, que se irán adaptando a tus intereses. El proceso de aprendizaje se basa principalmente en ir conociendo nuevo vocabulario que se va guardando en listas de palabras mientras se está navegando y disfrutando de contenido. Incluye canciones, letras y películas completas.

Around the Corner @MGuhlin Cobbling Together an LMS: Towards Self-Directed Learning | ESOL | Scoop.it

...cutting-edge learning environments that allow learners to be self-directed are where it is at. I sense a mountain of resentment when I'm told to learn something, to use ONE technology (e.g. paper-n-pencil, computer, iPad, whatever) but when I'm invited to explore, to make my own connections with a text, with ideas, I'm inclined to blog it, to curate content, to do more with various devices.

One other product I have been getting excited about is Verso. This platform is not quite a learning management system, and has built in interactivity. I like it because it is crazy easy to use. It is sort of the anti-LMS way to have students engage with your content.

This app has been a plaything of mine for the last couple of weeks, and I am going to play over the holidays to see how it works. It is very easy to use: upload a video, write some notes/activities and there is the lesson. Seems a simple way to make flipped content for those starting to flip.

New Google Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum Now Available — iKeepSafe | ESOL | Scoop.it

"In discussions about contemplative pedagogy a great deal of attention has been devoted to practical applications of mindfulness in the classroom (what we might call “mindfulness-based pedagogy”). The tendency in this approach is to view mindfulness as a type of technology that can be used to enhance the quality and effectiveness of the teaching and learning experience.

 

"While there are many wonderful benefits of this approach, it generally abstracts mindfulness from its historical roots as a practice aimed at moral and spiritual development. The purpose of this presentation is to recover the value of traditional meditation practice as a means of cultivating the capacities or virtues characteristic of the mindful teacher."
