Maureen Hogan Shanahan's insight:

Maureen Hogan Shanahan's insight:

Helping independent bookstores, James Patterson is giving away $1 million of his personal fortune to bookstores to help them expand and improve.  Will this help?  Or are bookstores, like the dinosaur and the corner grocery store, only a thing to be studied for anthropological significance?

Technology can sometimes be wasted on English language teaching

Technology can sometimes be wasted on English language teaching | Using Technology to Manage a Class | Scoop.it

Most important is the need for a different approach to teacher development that focuses on helping teachers with their own digital literacies. These are the skills to integrate technology into our daily lives and practices. Technology use, just like the language our students learn, needs to focus on things that are useful and that enrich and enable lives.

He makes some good points in this article with perhaps the most crucial being the need for adequate pre-service, and in-service, training for teachers. It's great to have the technology, but not being able to use it effectively really does hinder its efficiency. Interesting article..
MikeMathaess's comment, May 16, 2012 1:56 AM
An interesting article and I must agree. Classroom based technology and inter-active language technology will bring only limited benefits to the language student vis-à-vis deeper cognitive development, unless accompanied with rich tools to develop full social integration skills with information technology and these skills start with the teacher.
