Twinvox

Twinvox | EFL teaching | Scoop.it

Here's a good site for those who care about speaking! Excellent service where people can share their communicative skills as native speakers of a language as they share a good time with someone else who is willing to learn that language through a videochat within the twinvox platform. Find peers and start sharing your skills and learning for free from someone else the language you want to learn. Good initiative, indeed!

從TASA看英語E流學習:教育的破壞式創新 — 顛倒教室-The Classroom Flip (將傳統的學習流程做些翻轉)
我們很認真的放下快樂英語的迷思與瑕疵,重新檢視英語教學效能!現場我們一起破解TASA與我們教學之間的重構,接下來我們開始精彩的翻轉教學-The Classroom Flip,我們找⋯⋯到「數位清字」、「真實英語REAL English」以及「英語聽說教學技術English Recoding」的密碼。
重構TASA與英語教學斷橋:
S 單句選擇題/P 整段式填空/F 圖表閱讀理解/R 文章閱讀理解/preA 找出字母(字首字母)/sufA 找出字母(字尾字母)/V 語句單字辨識/PR 看圖辨意/DR 對話回應/DC 對話理解
「數位清字」、「真實英語REAL English」:
超過八成的學生反應,在學習上最需要老師幫助的時刻,是在做習題 (Homework) 的時候,但傳統的學習流程卻將「做習題的時間」安排在「放學後」,導致此時最能幫助學生的老師無法在其身旁提供即時的幫助與指導;「數位清字」就其中秘密喔!
「英語聽說教學技術English Recoding」的17種教法,現場開始『翻轉英語』,17種秘密的教學法!
The Classroom Flip (將傳統的學習流程做些翻轉):
Active ── 主動的、積極的;
Contextual ── 在相關的時空背景或情境中去學習的;
Engaged ── 願意付出心力來參與的;
Interactive ── 雙向溝通的、彼此交換心得、意見、看法的;
Social ── 願意與同儕見面的、願意花時間與同儕相處的、願意花費心力與同儕一起切磋學習的 (peer-learning)http://blog.udn.com/yorpong/6395410#ixzz1tTSlZ7GU
