                         Learning = School = Education

Why isn't "shit detecting" a school subject?

detector I"m sorry but I've had a bad day. All the B.S. about the "royal" wedding and people aimlessly following,  jollygagging along.  The farce of celebrity and bread and circuses. Who'll break this circle of lies?



What I mean is that school should be a place for creating citizens that are critically aware, citizens that ask questions and who in the spirit of the enlightenment - are free and pull on their… Continue

Using new technologies to ensure quality education

Zhvillimet teknologjike në botë po lëvizin me shpejtësinë e dritës, kurse zhvillimet në arsim po ecin ngathët



Në shoqëritë e zhvilluara, në gjithë botën, nuk mund të paramendohet jeta pa përdorimin e teknologjive bashkëkohore, të cilat po e lehtësojnë punën dhe jetën e njerëzve në fusha të ndryshme.

Në kuadër të teknologjive globale të cilat kanë depërtuar thellë; në prodhim, komunikim, shkencë, etj., ka ardhur koha e…

How to make a karaoke file

Karaoke is a great tool for teachers and students that I've been promoting for ages. Lots of posts on here about it. It is great for both controlling audio and text, contextualizing audio and listening/reading skills coupled with phonemic awareness. It is multimodal and really has the WOW factor.



I finally updated the… Continue

We Keep What We Give

web20

I'm a confirmed, addicted, "sharer". Been that way for years and I'm sure its caused it share of incredulity. Many people just don't operate on and of the same mental construct - believing as I do that knowledge is not something created nor owned. It is air and for all. But that is okay - the world is beautiful because it is made of so many who are different. There is room for all of us.



I'm…

Coach Philip Interview from: englishrocksonline.com

First of all let me explain how it all started:
I found Philip's blog because it had a name similar to mine, so I read his profile and wrote the following post:


Hi Philip, It's me again. I'm a high school teacher in Brazil and I've been thinking about interviewing you by e-mail and post it in my blog. It would be a…

The exercises are very simple. One - personalizing and… Continue

Count Trees for Earth Day

Our class simply took the time this Earth Day to go outside and count the trees around the school. Our school is in Korea so the trees are of an Asian nature. I ended up learning as much as the students learned. I attached the power point we used to introduce Earth Day and the tree counting activity. Earth%20Day%202011.ppt The… Continue

World Peace Games - students solving world problems





What is education? I just finished reading David Warlich's 2cents worth blog and commenting. About making education purposeful. That's what's missing. Forget reform, change blablabla. Just get people together with a purpose.



And what should that be? Well, I think it should be what John Hunter says. PLEASE take a moment and watch this. I will say no…

Djoudj National Park

On my second day in Senégál I visited Djoudj Park.

 Located on Senegal River, Djoudj Bird Sanctuary is the country's largest wildlife reserve. It consists of a wide range of habitat and migrated birds. It is such a splendid site that any one can immerse himself in the vast beauty of nature here. It's an ever best place to view birds not only in the country but as well as in the…

Is there anybody out there?

Hi all,

 

Is collaboration on a large scale the new buzzword(s) for educators? I don't expect an answer to this question as it is rhetorical. Despite my idealistic leanings I am still skeptical. Nevermind me, I am doing research for a uni assignment on EFLclassroom2.0 and would like to know:

First, if you (member of this community) check this site, and if so how often you do it?

Second, what have you contributed to the community? (it can be anything from comments…
