Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development

Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals is of vital importance, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way we use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

Laura Montenegro's curator insight, September 10, 2016 11:05 PM
Talking about professional development, it is important to look always for ways in order to improve our study and profesional skills as teachers and as digital individuals. With this social media can provides us athentic input and materials such as articles, games, books, etc. For our own development and it is also proved that it can guide and influence students perseptions and interests. The autor divided social media into three different sections: Information in ( the input, links and places where to find information), information processing ( the process of learning and capture more and more information) and finally, information out (when you share what you've learned). In my opinion it is very important to share our results because in this way we are going to realize what we really learn and ow we did it, also to understand how our learning process works and how it does not.

Pronunciation Technology: Global Community and Innovative Tools in Forvo and NetProF Pronunciation Feedback

Pronunciation Technology: Global Community and Innovative Tools in Forvo and NetProF Pronunciation Feedback | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Learners want to be able to communicate effectively and often rank speaking and pronunciation and the ability to have a conversation as the most desirable language skills to acquire (Vivrette, 2010). However, even in the most communicative of classrooms, there is often an element missing – explicit instruction on intelligible second language (L2) pronunciation (Trofimovich & Isaacs, 2016). Research indicates that many L2 learners are not getting enough pronunciation support in the typical language classroom (Lord & Fionda, 2013). Speech technology provides novel pronunciation development opportunities for language learners. In this article, the free pronunciation resources Forvo and NetProF are presented and compared.

Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet

Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

The different ways that parents are handling their kids’ use of tech is creating three distinct types of tech users, says Alexandra Samuel.


The era of the digital native is over. If that declaration comes as a relief, you’re most likely either an older tech user who is tired of feeling irrelevant, or a millennial frustrated with being reduced to a headphone-wearing cliché. In 2001, education consultant Mark Prensky coined this term — along with calling the analog-raised generation “digital immigrants” — to alert teachers to the emerging wave of students who’d be arriving at schools with new ways of thinking and absorbing information after growing up with computers, videogames, digital music players, video cams, cell phones and other devices. ...

How to treat willful digital illiteracy in education

How to treat willful digital illiteracy in education | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Why does digital illiteracy seem acceptable in education? 


... We should finally drop the myth of digital natives and digital immigrants. As I said in my blog, in the context of issuing guidance to parents about e-safety: "I'm sorry, but I don't go for all this digital natives and immigrants stuff when it comes to this: I don't know anything about the internal combustion engine, but I know it's pretty dangerous to wander about on the road, so I've learnt to handle myself safely when I need to get from one side of the road to the other." The phrase may have been useful to start with, but it's been over-used for a long time now. In any case, after immigrants have been in a country for a while, they become natives. We've had personal computers for 30 years, and I was using computers in my teaching back in 1975. How long does it take for someone to wake up to the fact that technology is part of life, not an add-on? ...

The Importance of Teaching Technology to Teachers

The Importance of Teaching Technology to Teachers | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

We’ve all said it. “Technology is the wave of the future.” There’s no denying that. It’s actually the wave of the present. I know that every teacher in academe today has heard that the need to use technology in the classroom is imperative now. If we are going to engage our students in the class discussions and the lectures, we need to be doing this engagement with the technologies they are familiar with. Just last month, The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) said the same thing. In their recent reconstruction of the definition of literacy in the 21st century ...
