ELT notes: Some things I am certain of (for now, this is beta, OK?) - 17 views

  • teaching is worth discussing. Anything else can be found for free on the Internet.
  • Good technology use in the classroom is transparent and intertwined.
  • Motivation is a drug. It is a short-term target.
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • Better make people "addicted" to learning, to the process, to the autonomy of it. There are intrinsic reasons why this is pleasurable, meaningful and long lasting per se.
  • 7) Mind the use of the word "enhance" when linked to learning. Mind the gap. Old things are just old things.

      Note my comment: "This is such a good point! We do not advance from the early airplanes by sticking to using double winged biplanes or 'enhancing' the propeller engine. If a blog is used to 'enhance' the sharing of homework then the point of a blog is missed."
  • 9) Standards are for things that fit a pattern. When educators claim that creativity is a "21st century" essential skill, we need to accept the limitations of striving for standards. Assessment and standards are cousins.
  • Doubt, question and never, ever just assume.

      This should be a poster to put in classrooms:-)

      Communicating results is becoming more and more frequent.(#4) Doubting out loud doesn't seem to grant you an "expert" degree, which I notice is the aim of many educators who are blogging. Particularly those who write in Spanish.

      The poster in the classroom... Interesting. I would change the phrase to "Remember your teacher also expects to learn lots from you". Few teachers are comfortable doubting in front of their students. Perhaps, with reason ;-)

    So many quotable quotes in this post! Wonderful 'deep' thinking.
