e-moderation station Publications I have written extensively about English Language Teaching and technology: Going Mobile: Teaching with hand-held devices Delta Publishing, 2014 (with Gavin Dudeney) [download a free sample] This ground-breaking publication is the first published book on mobile and handheld learning in ELT. Starting with a history of mlearning and moving through a rationale and a set of practical case studies from around the world, the book will provide you with a set of sample activities to try out with your classes, and also help you envisage, develop and implement your own mLearning plan in your institution or organisation. Firmly grounded in the practical, this is one book you will want to read if you’re looking at mobile devices or tablets in teaching or training.

Nicky Hockly's six favourite teaching online activities Back to school with another guest post! I’m starting up the guest sixes here with half a dozen of the best activities for teaching online. These come from none other than one of my great mentors, Nicky Hockly. Nicky co-founded The Consultants-E, an online consultancy specialising in education and trained me as an emoderator over seven years ago. To celebrate the launch of our new book, Teaching Online (from Delta Publishing), Lindsay Clandfield and I decided to write a guest post on each other’s blogs. Here are my six favourite activities (Lindsay forced me to write six!). 1 Sounds of me This activity can be used at the beginning of an online course. 2 My precious… This is another great activity to help learners in an online course get to know each other better. 3 Podcast dictations I find that many language learners love dictations. 4 Your message to the world This activity is good for speaking practice. What is your vision of a perfect world? 5 Web tours . 6 Am I saying this correctly?

6 Favorite Teaching Online Activities by Lindsay Clandfield Our E-Moderation Course is coming up November 15th and will be taught by the international author and speaker, Lindsay Clandfield. Today's guest post features 6 of his favorite online activities which you can find in his book, Teaching Online! Photo by Flnz The following are my favourite six activities that I use regularly when teaching online courses. By online, I mean here that both myself and the students are doing the activity 100% online and at a distance from each other (not in a computer room together, or me using a connected IWB in class). 1 My window, my world This is a getting-to-know-you activity. It's a great way to get a window into what the other people on your course are like. *if you are using a VLE (virtual learning environment) then you will be able to set up different discussion forums for activities) 2 Five clicks away This is a great reading activity that really can only be done online. 3 Follow that story! Here's another reading activity. 4 What's my line? 5 Binomials

Stephen's Web 15 Ways to Engage Students and Prevent Online Drop-Outs 4 Principals Of Digital Literacy Literacy Literacy is the ability to make sense of something, often generalized as the ability to read and write. In many ways, reading is reading, media is media, but in the same way a play places unique comprehension demands on a reader compared to a poem or a letter, so do digital media compared to classic media forms. In the 21st century, new literacies are emerging and digital media forms allow communication to be more nuanced than ever before. Digital Literacy Digital Literacy is about being able to make sense of digital media. 4 Principles Of Digital Literacy 1. The first principle of digital literacy is simply comprehension–the ability to extract implicit and explicit ideas from a media. 2. The second principle of digital literacy is interdependence–how one media form connects with another, whether potentially, metaphorically, ideally, or literally. 3. Sharing is no longer just a method of personal identity or distribution, but rather can create messages of its own. 4.

Tips to Curb Online Cheating « Online Science Educator As the popularity of distance learning grows, there is a perception that cheating is more difficult to monitor than ever before. In the 2008 study, Cheating in the Digital Age: Do Students Cheat More in Online Courses?, students admitted they were nearly four-times more likely to cheat in online courses than live classes. While academic dishonesty may seem difficult to detect in a virtual classroom where instructors may never meet students face-to-face, there are methods instructors can use to try to keep students honest. Jennifer Sieszputowski, anatomy and physiology instructor at Kirtland Community College in Rosscommon, Michigan, uses LabPaqs in her courses and says she has noticed more online cheating in her distance learning classrooms in recent years. “Some of my students have copy and pasted straight from the Internet because they didn’t know it was wrong,” Sieszputowski said. Utilizing a range of tactics helps Sieszputowski curb cheating. Like this: Like Loading...

RealtimeBoard 7 Ways to Create an Engaging Online Science Course « Online Science Educator 1.Introduce yourself and your course │ A creative and engaging way for your students to get to know you better is through an introduction video. Include background information about your experiences and interests along with a review of the syllabus. Syllabi are students’ first impression of a course and the instructor. In face-to-face classes instructors often add to the syllabus as they go along; this is not possible in online classes where it is considered the students’ bible. Important elements to include in a syllabus are: learning objectives and activities, course contents (texts, labs, discussion board), expectations of students and instructor, a detailed assignment calendar, FAQs and forms of assessment. 3.Understand and manage student expectations │ Students expect online faculty to be present whenever they are there, no matter the day or the time, unless explicitly told otherwise.
