Mobile Pedagogy for English Language Teaching: A Guide for Teachers

Mobile pedagogy for English Language Teaching

Dear blog readers,

I have just begun reading the above paper that was published just this week. Already just a few pages in it has provided much food for thought and as such I can already recommend you give it your consideration.

I am reading this paper because:

  • I am interested in how technology can be integrated into the classroom.
  • My school has begun to use flipped classrooms and I wonder what technologies can be integrated into that initiative.
  • I work with K2-G2 students. What digital tools can help me with preparation, production, and presentation of lessons.
  • I have seen many examples of software that is labelled as educational, yet the emphasis seems to be, at face value, on entertainment. Where to find objective recommendations from experienced educators.
  • My school just purchased a small number of tablets on a trial basis. Can I make any software and pedagogic recommendations to teachers, hardware recommendations to IT staff, and costs vs academic return figures to the school.
  • I am from the UK, working at an English speaking International school in Tokyo. What specific software and hardware would be useful in this context for staff and students.

Related Posts. I am researching educational software that may be of use to my school, so I will be looking at the suggested apps and links in separate posts once I have completed reading the paper.

Please feel free to comment on the above and my thoughts on the paper as I progress through it. It is a busy time at school for me right now, so may take a little while to complete to my satisfaction... realistically Xmas 2015. Thank you - Tim
