and how about contexts where tech still consists of only a white board & some textbooks if Ss /Ts are lucky #ELTchat

12:01 pm

barbsaka:

@cybraryman1 How do you assess their capabilities, Jerry? #ELTchat

12:01 pm

bruno_cesar82:

#eltchat Repetitive issue: We must train ourselves! There are some tchrs at my school who can barely handle a word processor. Shame!

12:01 pm

barbsaka:

@chucksandy Welcome to Asian edtech :-) #ELTchat

12:01 pm

Shaunwilden:

Having the resources available to use is quite a challenge for many schools #ELTchat

We need to assume that you are teaching a class where using technology IS possible #ELTchat

esolcourses:

RT @ELTchat: RT @englishraven: Training for tech... What / When / Who / How + WHY? #ELTChat ] Why? because it empowers learenres. Big +, IMO

12:02 pm

pevansimpson:

So what are some core technologies that teachers should know? #eltchat

@chucksandy should be easy enough to train them to use a whiteboard I'd imagine :) #eltchat

@EnglAdvantage Depends on if we're teaching tech or using it as a tool. Most tools are use are v. simple, so SS can use at home #ELTchat

e_siemens:

@EnglAdvantage I guess we don't teach tech, do we? It comes as a bonus... don't know, might be mistaken. #ELTChat

chucksandy:

Highly recommend a look at The Center for Appropriate Technology http://www.icat.org.au/ for ideas of tech in low tech contexts #ELTchat

12:07 pm

Moacir2:

#eltchat There's a generational gap regarding Tech. Most my Ss are 30-50yo. They resist using tech for lessons.

12:07 pm

barbsaka:

Older kids learn by using tools, and making mistakes #eltchat
