WhatsApp in the classroom to foster listening and speaking | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
I would like to start this post by saying that when I hear some people say that mobile phones are dangerous devices for humankind, I cannot help smiling while recalling that I had to hear something similar about the dangers of TV not so many years ago. In fact, TV was called “the idiot box” and you had to be very careful because spending some hours watching it could kill your creativity forever. Fortunately, it seems that did not happen to many of us who learnt how to benefit from watching TV.
Diego Herrón García's curator insight, February 21, 10:05 AM
I think that tecnology in classrooms, specificly, the use of Apps by the teachers is not something to worry about if the facilitaros find the right way to implement the use of Apps in their classes. Technology and Apps should be used in education, but they should be given the right use and relevance, that is to say, that best tool a teacher may have is adaptation. Young people like tecnology and Apps, then taking that into account, teachers should take advantage of that in order to make their classes more entertaining for the learners. On the other hand, students should have restrictions when it comes the use of techology in class, because there are another aspects that learners need to work on that they not necessarily develop by the use of technology and Apps in class. Technology and Apps are not something detrimental if given the correct use. It is true that technology is doing harm to the new generations, but it is because it has not be given the correct use. TV, smarthphones may be  excellent tools to learn language or whatever it is, but the problem lies is that there is no good education regarding the use of technology, reason by which I consider that humanity needs to make some reflection on this matter (Apps, technology)
 That is what teachers need to do! to create awareness in regards to the use of technology and apps, and also use them in class to their advantage

The Real Reason Your Translation App Will Never Replace Language Learning | EdSurge News

The Real Reason Your Translation App Will Never Replace Language Learning | EdSurge News | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Diego Herrón García's curator insight, May 5, 2:16 PM
After Reading this article, I must say that I entirely agree with the fact that, no matter how advanced technology is, nothing will replace language learning. In fact, from my point of view, I feel that technology is quite dangerous for human beings if not given the right use. There is an interesting theory from a Norwegian Youtuber who says that the human brain used to be bigger than today because we used less technology to do things, for example: he said that we were better at memorization because in the ancient times we had to constantly explore territories and learn all the routes by heart without using GPS and that type of stuff. According to that, the same issue can be applied to the field of languages. It`s better to learn languages instead of being so dependent on translation devices to know what we are being told. Although, we`ll probably never be able to learn all of the languages with our brain capacity, we must try to keep our brains from losing skill because of our extreme dependence on technology. I think that we should use translation Apps when we are traveling or when we need to translate any language for a task we need to perform, that is okay, but we should not give up on learning a second language by reading books, listening to radio and interacting with people, because those activities are good fitness for our brains. Just as we need to do exercise to take care of our bodies, the brain also needs to go to the gym, and the only way to do that is by reading, learning languages, etc. If we get to the point that we do everything through technology, it will inevitably lower our brain capacity because, possibly, we will probably stunt our brains by not memorizing things and using our intellectual capacities to create new neural connections. I am not saying that technology is bad, but if humans are not educated to give it the right use, I am afraid to say that the quality of our mental capacities will lower. In addition to that, learning languages are very good to prevent dementia and other mental illnesses.

This article was written by Mike Groves, Diana Hopkins and Tom Reid Around 70 million people – including Bill Gates – have signed up for the language learning app Duolingo.
