Center for Global Education By Anthony Jackson In matters of national security, environmental sustainability, and economic development, what we do as a nation and in our everyday lives is inextricably intertwined with what governments, businesses, and individuals do beyond our borders. This new reality helps us more clearly define the role that education must play in preparing all students for success in an interconnected world. The United States have invested unprecedented resources in education, betting that our outmoded, factory-age system can be fundamentally transformed to prepare students for the rigors of a global economy. They have challenged states and school districts to set clearer, higher standards and assess student progress in more creative ways, prepare more productive teachers, and provide effective intervention in failing schools.

Integrating tech for the new term: getting to know students – learning technologies in EAP All teachers know that the new year really starts in September, not January as the rest of the world seems to think. That’s when we make our resolutions to be better people, better colleagues and better teachers. We tell ourselves that we are going to finally get organised, read those articles, clean the desk, plan lessons in advance and make sure we stay on top of marking. Sometimes we even do some of those things….. In the spirit of the new (teaching) year, I thought I’d make some suggestions for any teachers wanting to integrate a little more technology into their lessons.

Some people feel this is a misnomer since the web is a constantly evolving entity rather than a series of releases. Perhaps you feel more comfortable with the term “new internet usage” or “current web tools” instead of Web 2.0. Regardless of what you call it, there are many wonderful and useful applications (apps) on the web. Anna Laghigna's Learning Diary Teaching English as a foreign language, I have used technology so far especially to improve speaking skills (pronunciation, fluency and oracy) through Digital Storytelling, Flipped Classroom or Webquests. Unfortunately, I have not been able to carry out any PBL in full so far, firstly because we have little technology at school; secondly because there are few teachers in my school who would be willing to consider a multidisciplinary approach; thirdly, because you will need a lot of permissions in Italian schools to do so, including the approval by your principal. So, let's hope for the future. If the main objectives of our learning stories should focus on the creation rather than the mere consumption of knowledge, the range of possible activities is huge: from videos, storyboards, comic strips, animations to presentations, e-books, timelines, infographics, blogs, wikis, etc. For example, they created imaginary interviews with their favourite celebrities.
