Flipping Mother Tongue oracy lessons with digital storytelling and social learning

This is my first attempt to share some of my ideas to flip teaching and learning. I picked oracy lesson because I have been using tools like VoiceThread for oracy teaching and assessment for a few years. I still believe there are a lot of room for improvement. I will continue to explore further and sharpen my flipping practices. I hope I can come up with a proposal for iCTLT 2014 based on this sharing :)

I am a Power Searcher!

I attended the Power Searching with Google course and is proud to earn a certificate! It was a simple online workshop about search techniques. I learnt some nifty stuff about searches, for example,  searching images using colour filters. I didn’t know about it before the course. Haha!

I hope Google will come up with more courses related to its applications. The course also features Google Hangout. Although I didn’t participate, I think it’s a great start for Google to deliver online lessons to masses.
