As you might know already: eduFire is famous for using guerilla marketing strategies to spread the word about their platform. With the recent implementation of two little buttons they help you, the teacher, to spread the news about your courses on two of the biggest social networks on the net: facebook and Twitter.
My good friend and colleague Aniya started today a new version of the famous #followfriday on Twitter. But this version is just for teachers and the day is tuesday. So, you already guessed it, it is called #teachertuesday.
Although being a little late (there is really too much going on in education right now!) I want to take the chance to congratulate Bernhard and the team of busuu.com for this award. As the interview in the Alumni News is in German I would also give my readers a brief overview of the content.
The Berlin based Babbel.com just launched its first Premium Course about a week ago. It is called “Spanisch – der leichte Einstieg (Spanish – the easy Start)” and based on the course “Spanisch ganz einfach in 20 Tagen” from Christof Kehr published by Hueber.
When I am browsing the forums of education platforms I come across one idea between online teachers from time to time. It has something to do with evolution. Basically they say that online teaching has to be radically different from what we teachers did up to now. No more text books. Everything must be interactive and online.
But if we take a closer look on the evolution of mankind and compare it to the evolution of teaching we will see something different.
