The INTENT Project | Raising greater awareness of telecollaboration

The INTENT Project | Raising greater awareness of telecollaboration | Blogging for ELT | Scoop.it

This page aims to  keep you up to date with all the latest developments and publications by the INTENT project team.

 

Telecollaboration involves engaging groups of learners in distant locations in collaboration together through online technologies. Our Erasmus Multilateral Project INTENT (Integrating Telecollaborative Networks into Foreign Language Higher Education) aims to raise greater awareness among students, educators and decision makers of telecollaboration as a tool for virtual mobility in FL education at university level and also on achieving more effective integration of telecollaboration in Higher Education Institutions.

 

If you want to learn more about the  background of our project, you can visit our website (http://intent-project.eu/) or contact the project team  (intentproject@gmail.com). You can also read our introductory flyer in six languages here (http://intent-project.eu/?q=node/47).

Teaching & Learning Languages: Are They That Shy?

Teaching & Learning Languages: Are They That Shy? | Blogging for ELT | Scoop.it

I often hear Japanese students are shy in an EFL classroom, and I myself have long thought so. 

 

However, I began to suspect that those seemingly shy students are not always that shy. My working hypothesis is that they may be shiest in class, around people they meet every week but don't know very well. So this semester I decided to try increasing interaction in class, especially in the first couple of weeks.

Student Blogging Challenges - A List of Ideas

"One of the things that my students love the most on our KidBlog are our weekly blog challenges. And while these challenges are in sense homework, they always have the opportunity to do them at school, and get enough time to do it without being a hassle. Over the past two years we have had quite a lot of fun with these, so why not share for all you blogging with your students. Feel free to borrow or change to suit your kids."

My 2nd year EFL students have just started blogging, talking about places they love or want to visit.  I'd very much appreciate it if you could drop by and leave comments.  

 

I'll ask them, when we meet tomorrow, how they want to have their errors corrected. It's one my goals this year to find some good ways to give corrective feedback.

9 Slides enables you to import presentations, add video commentar from your iPad and then export your finished presentations to the web. Great tool for creating flipped learning or for completing project work assignments.

Mayra.Loves.Books's curator insight, March 23, 2013 11:21 AM

Beside using it for blended learning, it can be a good way to practice for a  presentation.

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, March 23, 2013 11:35 AM

Use this one to record your presentation along with your lesson ppts and post  them to your website. Students who miss class will be able to get the whole presentation, not just your slides. This would also be helpful to parents helping students with homework as well.
