¿Qué es SCORM? Aplicaciones gratuitas para su uso Raquel Martín Rodríguez – @RaquelMartin15 La importancia de compartir información y reutilizarla en la forma en que a cada uno le es más provechoso, ha llegado a su punto más álgido con la llegada de las redes sociales. Éstas nos han enseñado que si distribuimos nuestro conocimiento sobre un tema en cuestión, las personas que tenemos a nuestro alrededor, ya sean amigos, contactos en una red social o alumnos y profesores, amplíen ese mismo conocimiento cuando lo consideran útil y lo reciclan para sí de una forma distinta, pero conservando el mismo valor. Es por este beneficio que aporta el “compartir” que SCORM se está convirtiendo en algo tan importante en el ámbito educativo ya que, no sólo es una herramienta que ayuda a estandarizar paquetes educativos digitales, si no que permite también compartir una forma de enseñar concreta para que los demás puedan utilizarla de la misma forma o mejorarla. ¿Qué es SCORM y para qué sirve?

Teachers The Zimmer Twins is a fun way to incorporate technology into the classroom. Watch your students expand their vocabulary, practice proper writing habits, and become junior movie producers all at the same time! Take a few minutes to explore the Zimmer Twins and so you are familiar with the site before using it with your students. Getting Started The best place to start is the help area. Accounts To save movies visitors need to get a nickname and password by joining the site. Setting up accounts in a classroom can present challenges. Use the site without accounts. Remember that students are welcome to set up their own accounts at home with the help of their parents. Flipped Learning: A Response To Five Common Criticisms Over the past two years, the Flipped Learning method has created quite a stir. Some argue that this teaching method will completely transform education, while others say it is simply an opportunity for boring lectures to be viewed in new locations. While the debate goes on, the concept of Flipped Learning is not entirely new. Dr. Eric Mazur of Harvard University has been researching this type of learning since the early ’90s, and other educators have been applying pieces of the Flipped Learning method for even longer. It is our opinion that one of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what Flipped Learning is. With the above framework in mind, we tapped Twitter to learn what educators say are the downsides to implementing the Flipped Learning method, and we have provided our opinions that address the five major criticisms. Implementing the Flipped Learning method makes me, as the teacher, much less important. This could not be further from the truth!

Top 10 Tools for Creating Teaching Materials UPDATE: Featured blog of the month!! I am very proud to announce that this post has been awarded the 'Blog Award for Innovative Teaching Ideas' by Teaching English British Council.I am absolutely over the moon! I would like to take this opportunity to thank Teaching English for all their support and thank everyone who voted :-) Multisensory Materials: When planning a lesson I always take into consideration the fact that students process information in different ways, so I need to use a variety of instructional approaches to reach all of them. Some students are visual learners, they need materials that contain pictures, videos and diagrams. In this post I will 'put forward' some free and easy ideas on how to create original teaching materials: I have used a selection of 8 phrasal verbs with the verb PUT in order to demonstrate how the tools that I have discovered can be used to create original, multisensory materials and activities. 1.Exam time mind maps: 2. examtime Quizzes: by emma_segev
