Shona Whyte's curator insight, February 13, 2013 3:38 AM

This is probably the best of the four games I have just posted - there is a full sentence to give context, and learners choose the correct particle to complete the sentence.  

 

The game factors should help maintain motivation, so the only question that remains is retention - can/will learners remember any corrections?  Or is the reinforcement provided for the expressions they already know enough?

Efficiency of the IWB | itilt.eu

Efficiency of the IWB | itilt.eu | IWBs & Language Teaching | Scoop.it

The iTILT-training handbook offers a set of criteria to be used when designing IWB materials for foreign language lessons.  One of the criteria focuses specifically on the efficiency of the IWB: ‘’When designing IWB-based activities teachers should measure the personal cost of integrating the IWB against its return and its efficiency. In other words, they should ask themselves whether the same activity could not be implemented more easily via other means’’ (page 14).  

 

From collecting video data and interviewing the teachers and learners for the iTILT project it became apparent that many valued the efficiency of the IWB in a variety of different ways. Below are some ways in which teachers stated that the IWB improved the efficiency of their language lessons.  Whilst the majority of following clips are examples of Welsh video clips you will be able to find the majority of these examples across the other countries on the website.

Efficiency is certainly an argument for most teachers: show me a way to do something quickly and easily, and I'm ready to listen!

Shona Whyte's curator insight, March 21, 2013 6:24 PM

"Beauchamps (2004) insiste sur le fait que la transition de l’enseignement traditionnel avec un tableau noir à l’intégration du TBI suppose un changement du style pédagogique de l’enseignant. Pour lui, les enseignants doivent découvrir les potentialités du TBI et cela suppose un investissement considérable. En effet, ils doivent développer leurs compétences techniques aux côtés de leurs compétences pédagogiques."
