What changing in your teacher-training? :
1° analyzing the benefits of the ICT tool/media/method used during the presentation/lesson and making links with the students’ future profession.
Operating mode : BASIC GROUPS
- Are the presenters interact with the audience during their presentation? How?
- Has the audience interact with their? How?
- Has the presentation engage the students? When? How?
- Have they chose the adequate tool(s) for interact/involve the audience? Why?
- Which pedagogy have they use during the presentation? Are they efficients with it? How improve it?
- What was the place for the audience in the presentations?
2° each student has to make a note about their own learning during the first week of the IP (this note will be shared to the outside world : blog, etc.)
Operating mode : INDIVIDUAL
- when it was made, each student publish a comment at this point (here);
- in his comment, each student give its first name at least;
- in his comment, each student paste the link to his sharing note.

Today two different news in two different ways present the use of mobile phone or tablets in classroom.
USA : 73% of Teachers Use Cellphones for Classroom Activities
More middle- and secondary-school teachers are using digital tools in their classrooms and professional lives, a new report says. A study by Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project released Thursday delves into teachers’ increasing technology use, but also expresses educators’ concerns about the digital divide.
Use of mobile technology dominates the learning process, the study finds. Seventy-three percent of teachers say that they or their students use cellphones in the classroom or to complete assignments. Nearly half of respondents use e-readers and tablets for teaching.
Plan B: Too cool for school: 7 reasons why tablets should NOT be used in education
Good technology always has an allure and iPads have tons of allure, but it’s an allure that appeals to adults not children. I can see a use for tablets with young children 3-9 and perhaps in special needs. Once beyond the basics of play, the iPad is a luxury that schools cannot afford. Neither are they desirable in terms of the type of learning that schools largely deliver. These initiatives are often technology and not learning-led.
What can you respond to Donald Clark? Which is your opinion?
