WORDPRESS

WordPress has long been one of the most successful blog platform.

My experience of using WordPress dates back to the closure of the Yahoo 360 nearly 10 years ago. The advent of Facebook and social media (Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) at present really pushes the use of blogging to the edge of non-existence.

The amount of information at the moment is huge, and people (especially the youth) tend to update the information as fast as possible via either their News Feed on Facebook or Tweets on Twitter. One advocate of the social media is the 45th POTUS, Donald Trump who uses his personal account on Twitter to tweet and spread updates to all of his followers.

ELT and WordPress share a lot of similarities. They act as a component to each other in terms of storing and sharing information. From this ICT Course that I am taking, WordPress has been put into use effectively.

Since this is rather a blog of mine. I just want to share how much I love this blog platform. I remember wandering around the Internet just to look for some insights of my studies at high school. I came across a lot of personal blogs dedicated to that field of study. They exploited WordPress to the fullest, hence I was totally impressed by how colorful, customizable WordPress was and has been.

Following my introduction, a brief tutorial will be presented on the tab above. Please check!

QUIZLET

QUIZLET, QUIZLET, QUIZLET! HOW I LOVE MY QUIZLET!

Talking about any ELT tool that is both easy-to-manage and fun-to-use, I have to say it is Quizlet. My chance ‘encounter’ with Quizlet took place at a run-down computer lab at my high school (Phổ Thông Năng Khiếu – High School for the Gifted). My computer had been logged on by another student (presumably from the previous session). On the tab of Chrome was Quizlet.

Ever since I know it, I have used it to the fullest, mostly for exam preparation and vocabulary learning. I got familiar with CAE, CPE, IELTS, GMAT, GRE, and of course SAT. Indisputably, SAT is regarded one of the hardest aptitude tests out there. I remember in 2014, when the Verbal section was still present in the test, we squeezed our brain to learn all of the myths, tricks to tackle this section. The variety of these vocabulary lists is limitless from High-frequency, to ‘1500 Words you need to know‘, and ‘Direct Hits Words‘. We can barely swallow any pill more bitter than this SAT ‘pill’.

Referring back to QUIZLET, it has benefited not only students but teachers as well. It is immensely time-saving in preparing and creating flashcards for students. One more thing that I love about Quizlet is its universal library for us to browse from it countless sets of flashcards suited to our needs.

 

CHALKUP

The revolution of education has been accelerated over the past few years. With the development of Web 4.0 and Industry 4.0. Such a combination leads to the consequential Education 4.0.

We have long passed the decade of sitting in class, jotting down the words with pens and notebooks, writing on the blackboards with dusty chalks. They have been replaced by projectors, screen, computers, tablets,…

Thanks to the ultimate development of the technology at present. We can enjoy the merits of the online world. We, as a teacher, benefit from it most.

Chalkup was born in the ever-changing and ever-advanced period of technology. Online classroom management has been one of the most attractive sector in education. Internet/Tech application has been put into practice and in teaching as well as learning.

I love how you can create, mark, check attendance, and give out notifications in just a few clicks.
