Teachers' Resources

I would like to provide teachers with additional resources that they might need to enrich their information and skills.

In addition to the provided resources, teachers need to be trained in ICT skills as well as integrating these skills into their practice teaching.
Using Audio-visuals and Multimedia in the teaching and learning process involves students in learning and acquiring information. Most people learn by what they see and do, the use of appropriate instructional media provides an interactive experience which motivates learners and enhances the quality of learning.


Learning Objects

Learning objects are software tools used to motivate, attract, and evaluate students because they are supplied with multimedia tools. Teachers create such objects to inquire students' new concepts based on their previous knowledge. PowerPoint presentations are good example as they create an interactive and motivating learning environment. However, teachers should be careful in using these presentations in their classroom because they may end up using self-directed learning instead of engaging students in the presented lesson.

Implementing ICT in Classroom

Implementing ICT in Classroom requires strategic planning from head teachers to be supported with adequate tools and resources. Also, It supports personlized or differentiated learning. Looking forward to sharing ideas and information on this subject with you all.

Podcasting

Hi everyone, This looks like a very interesting project. I’d like to share info about a free piece of software that I know is popular with UK teachers and students. It’s called audacity and is great for making sound recordings that can be shared as mp3s or podcasts. Maybe you could try it with your class. They could make a short recording about their school day and share it with other schools by uploading it to eLanguages. Students in other countries could listen and respond with their own recordings. It’s a wonderful way of allowing children to share their real voice and experiences with a partner school. Audacity http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ A great UK-India ICT project that uses podcasts http://ukieri.animalcarpet.com/view_pagecontent.php?resourceid=636 More info about podcasting http://www.globalgateway.org.uk/default.aspx?page=2515 Chris

Hi Rana, Great to see the powerpoints you’ve uploaded. You certainly have very talented and creative students! Would it be possible for them to create one or two presentations about their local area. They could include info about some of the following: local food, clothes, sports, buildings, climate, famous places etc. We could share them with the students at St Austell’s in Cornwall. After watching them, the UK students might have lots of questions for your students. http://www.elanguages.org/37909 In the future your students might be able to use audacity to record questions for the students in Cornwall.

Hi Rana, Thanks for posting that great presentation! Do you know the name of the school in Scotland that sent the photostory about Loch Ness? I’ve posted a message on the Cornwall forum asking them to take a look when they get back from holiday and contact you if they have any questions. Bye for now Chris

Hi Rana, I thought it might be! I know George Glass, the headteacher at Cauldeen. He’s brilliant and so passionate about international work in schools. His school have done some wonderful eTwinning projects. Here’s one he received an award for recently. Little explorers Bye for now Chris

Powerpoint

Powerpoint can also be a great tool for students to work together, or individually, to make wonderful, creative presentations. Have a look at the great work by these students from Cornwall in the UK http://www.elanguages.org/37909 Chris

Course Management System
13 years ago
Ikke Soehartina
Managing learning process is very important to give teacher feedback and monitoring the student activity and progress. I use Dokeos as Course Management System CMS). It's very powerful. You can put resources (text, movie, audio), assessment and assignment for the students, monitoring they work, and do interactivity like chatting and discussion. There are some free CMS that can be used, but I prefer to use Dokeos and Moodle.

Hi Ikke, would you please send us the link to these tools. Thanks Rana

Hi, Rana. You can download dokeos at http://www.dokeos.com and moodle at http://moodle.org I've tried both of them and I prefer dokeos because it's easier to use, even I still has a little problem with oogie. Recently I try to solve that problem because if Oogie can work well it's very powerfull. You can import PowerPoint or Open Office impress to Dokeos and add sound and narration on that presentation. Thanks

Hi Ikke, That’s the first time I’d heard of dokeos. I had a brief look through the website and it looks like really powerful e-learning tool. Is it designed as tool for corporate e-learning or is it something that can easily be adapted for a school environment? Is dokeos commonly used by education institutions in Indonesia? Thank you Chris

Re: Course Management System

Dokeos is not so popular in Indonesia. The most popular CMS is moodle. Previously I use moodle for Ora et Labora School Jakarta (www.oel-learning.com), Daarelqolam Tamgerang and Al Luthfah Bekasi. Our team has integrated database moodle with school administration system. But for Jubilee School, I use dokeos (www.elearning.jubilee-school.net). Using Dokeos you can manage and administer virtual class. I put my lesson and assignment in Dokeos, and I ask students to learn and do the assignment. I can monitor how long each student access the lesson, using quiz online I also can assess the students. I also can import the quiz that create using hot potatoes to Dokeos. The student in the class can open forum and chatting. They also can upload their work to Dokeos drop box. It can easily adapted to school.

Tools to create online quiz
13 years ago
Ikke Soehartina
Hi Everyone. Have you try "hot potatoes"? It's a powerful software to create quiz online. You can create MQC, fill in the blank, short answer, matching, and cross word puzzle easily. Download it at http://hotpot.uvic.ca Regards Ikke

Re: Tools to create online quiz

Hi Ikke – I agree ‘hot potatoes’ is great! It’s particularly good for language learning as you can make short online quizzes for the students to do at home to revise language taught in class. The students can also create great quizzes themselves for other students to try. It’s a good way to allow them to consolidate what they’ve learned. Chris

A good source of developments in ICT

Michael from eTwinning
Hi everyone, I subscribe to a couple of ICT teachers' blogs, which I find really useful for finding out all kinds of information and new developments in ICT - you don't have to be an expert to read them and the blog owners are usually quite willing to give support to people who are trying podcasting etc. for the first time. The ones I subscribe to are: digitalmavericks.blogspot.com edu.blogs.com joedale.typepad.com technoteacher.blogspot.com Anyone know any other good blogs?

Hi Michael, Nice to hear from you! You’ve got two of my favourite blogs on your list, edu.blogs and joedale. Thanks for the tip about the other two! The Healthy Passport blog that was used in the eTwinning project between Yester Primary School, in Scotland, with Kuvansin koulu Primary School, in Finland is a great example of how blogs can be used in school partnership work. healthypassportp5.blogspot.com/ Really interested to find out if blogs are used in education in Lebanon, Indonesia or other countries.
