Evaluating web-based tools for language instruction

Evaluating web-based tools for language instruction | Monya's List of ESL, EFL & ESOL Resources | Scoop.it

Over the last few years, interest in web-based tools has expanded rapidly, but how do we know which ones to use and which to avoid? In this workshop, we will look together at some web and mobile applications and establish criteria by which we can evaluate them to ensure we use tools that will lead to enhanced language learning.

Demand High ELT (1) | Jim Scrivener

Steve Kirk's curator insight, March 6, 2013 6:42 AM

Hear about the conception and development of the Demand High ELT 'meme' straight from Jim Scrivener. He's right about the way EFL has perfected the procedural, the 'how' of classroom management and materials delivery. He and Adrian Underhill's call for practice that moves a little more from 'learner centred' to 'learning centred' is long long overdue in the EFL world.

Steve Kirk's curator insight, March 6, 2013 7:24 AM

EAP should, in principle, always be 'demand high'. Here Jim Scrivener talks about the Demand High 'meme' for ELT generally. I think it's a really useful 'crystaliser' of things we already do in the EAP classroom, but perhaps need to think about more. EAP classroom practice has, in my experience, inherited from EFL an over-reliance on the procedural delivery of materials. EAP, given its often high-stakes nature, cannot afford to be this. We need to get down and messy with our students' (mis)understandings of content, texts and language. Demand High ELT gives us, I think, some useful food for thought. I've also posted some (early) thoughts on 'demand high EAP' here: http://bit.ly/Uxsh1j

Exploiting Infographics for ELT

Exploiting Infographics for ELT | Monya's List of ESL, EFL & ESOL Resources | Scoop.it

For those of you who haven’t encountered the term ‘infographic’ before, an infographic is a visual representation of, what is often, quite dense statistical information. This is the kind of information which can be very difficult to read as prose / text, but which, when transformed to a visual, can become accessible very quickly.

Infographics and business English training make a good fit and Nik Peachey's ideas transfer nicely to the BE classroom.
