CLIL. Crowdsourcing. Tefltecher. Digital presentations in education. What's your story? Technology and Education. Posted by José Picardo on December 31, 2011 In my role as teacher of languages, I have sought to study and understand how the social aspect of Web 2.0 can be harnessed to strengthen the teaching and learning of MFL.

Technology and Education

Most interesting to me was the transformative potential of blogs, Web 2.0 applications and social networks, not only to enhance existing practice, but also to create new technology-based tasks which would have been previously inconceivable, a process depicted below: 16 Ways Educators Can Use Pinterest [INFOGRAPHIC]

Teachers are known for their organizational skills, so chances are they'll love Pinterest's intuitive and logical design.

Professional development and networking are vital in any field, and that’s especially true for educators.

Whether it’s coming up with fresh ideas for lesson plans and classroom activities, seeking mentorship and support from veteran educators, or cultivating resources for technology integration or for meeting state standards, teachers need one another’s expertise. That’s why working with other educators in personal learning networks (PLNs) has become as important in an educator’s day as the time he or she spends teaching in class.

Below is a short list of PLNs that already exist, followed by some resources to help teachers build their own The Educator’s PLN is a Ning site (or online platform for creating your own social network) that facilitates connections between educators.

Teachers across the country have increasing numbers of English language learners (ELLs) in their classrooms. As a result, teachers need strategies that will help them reach all of their students and ensure that students learn what they need to know. Many lessons in existing curricula are designed for native speakers of English and do not support second language acquisition. This is particularly true for math instruction. Digital classrooms.
