THE USAGE OF A LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN AN EFL CLASSROOM

N. Al Behairi

Kuwait University (KUWAIT)
Technological advances are taking a major role in every field of our life. Today, younger generation is more attached to technology, immerging it mostly for social purposes. For that, it is the time for every mentor to apply technology into education. Only before that step, one must apprehend how to use technology to bring the best out of it. Instructors need to realize that integrating technology into education is a powerful tool that helps them moderating their course, but never a replacement to their existence. This presentation’s interest is to deliver a personal experience to other instructors on how to correctly use technology for educational purposes. One way of clarifying this point is to shed light on a very compelling application called Schoology. It is a LMS (Learning Management System) application that associates technology, learning, teachers’ moderation and collaboration under one roof. Moreover, another considerable point is to show that technology is not the one that does the magic for you, but rather you the instructor and how you are going to use it is what really counts. The question is whether students are going to be collaborative or not with their teacher. There will be an anticipated approach from this presentation on Schoology that is technology is essential and adds value to the educational material we have in hand. Examples from my own data are going to be presented to encourage new objectives. Participants will also have the opportunity to be taken on the sign up process, and create a course on Schoology. In addition, possible technical issues and the achievable ways to solve them will be covered. The result hoped for after this presentation is to be able to answer any digital immigrants’ questions and help them to be more confident with technology. To polish off, participants are free to ask questions or give suggestions or simply comment on any point that was brought up previously in the presentation.
