Study Educational Technology in English Language Teaching Online

Study Educational Technology in English Language Teaching Online | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

I’ve long believed that teacher development, especially when it comes to technology, is best done online and over a longer period than can be accomplished with face to face training courses. Online study gives teachers the opportunity to try out new ideas with their students, think things through, and reflect on what they have learned. Working online, they can also grow within a community of teachers from around the world, learn from each other and share their learning experiences.

 

These principles have been at the heart of two new courses I have been developing in partnership with CELT Athens. I will be tutoring these courses from September 2012, so follow the link if you would like to find out more.

"The Teacher Portfolio
is a web-based tool that offers teachers a secure personal space to
consolidate and document their teaching career. The benefits of this
service are that it offers teachers undertaking or teaching our exams
a means to record their qualifications, professional development,
reflections on their teaching and work experience." More information: http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/biblio/developing-cambridge-esol-teacher-portfolio

Gamification: Bring Gaming Mechanics Into Non-gaming Environments

Gamification: Bring Gaming Mechanics Into Non-gaming Environments | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Imagine if students were as involved in our classrooms as they are on their games. Imagine if they learned in our classroom at the same rate that they learn in their games. And I’m not talking about Pong or Donkey Kong. I’m talking about those complex, analytical adventure games that require data collection, analysis, and decision making.

Is modern technology creating a culture of distraction?

Is modern technology creating a culture of distraction? | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Is there a need for moderation when it comes to phones or the internet or social media? Of course there is, and social norms are developing around those things, just as they developed around the horseless carriage and the telephone and plenty of other modern inventions. One of the devices that has historically drawn the most criticism from scholars and theologians for its corrupting effect on humanity seems to have worked out pretty well — it’s called the book.

Engagement is not a goal it's an outcome

Engagement is not a goal it's an outcome | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

You often hear people talk about how technology is so “engaging” for kids. But that misses the point. It’s not the technology that’s engaging, it’s the opportunity to use technology to create something that is valued by the community and by yourself. Yes, a new device can be entertaining for a while, but when the novelty value wears off, what are you left with?

Technology Is Not That Hard Now

Technology Is Not That Hard Now | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

As a final thought, it struck me as really interesting that both Nik Peachey (one of ELT’s main proponents of using educational technology) and Scott Thornbury (who has in the past seemingly looked upon educational technology as the devil incarnate) both talked about the main strengths of educational technology being for use by the students at home, rather than in the class.

The Digital Transformation of Education: A 21st Century Imperative

The Digital Transformation of Education: A 21st Century Imperative | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

For many of us, technology plays a crucial role in how we obtain and process information and apply our knowledge on a daily basis. As a father who often finds himself having to share his smartphone and tablet with his three young sons, I can tell you that for our students, things are no different. And because children are often exposed to technology at an early age, their cognitive abilities are even more wrapped up in technology than ours.
