Mind Mapping in ELT with MindMaple

Mind Mapping in ELT with MindMaple | #AusELT Links | Scoop.it

When I was at college, these were drawn by hand on large sheets of paper but nowadays they can be produced using computer programs, and MindMaple is one such program. Using a program like MindMaple to do this has a number of advantages (especially if you don'r draw well). The program comes with a library of images and graphics and you can import in your own photographs and illustrations too. You can also hyperlink words to website and webpages as well as upload files as attachments. Features like these make it much easier to produce a really useful finished mind map that you can share with other people.

How I use social media for my professional development

How I use social media for my professional development | #AusELT Links | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals, is one that I believe is of vital importance though, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

#ELTCHAT summary: introverted students in interactive classrooms

#ELTCHAT summary: introverted students in interactive classrooms | #AusELT Links | Scoop.it

I suggested this as an ELT chat topic after reading Susan Cain’s book Quiet – The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, in which the author looks at the ways in which our society is geared up to celebrate and encourage extrovert personality traits.  Placed in opposition to the extrovert ideal, introverts are undervalued and overlooked.  Since reading this book I have become increasingly aware of how the ELT classroom is geared towards extrovert learners, while introvert learners are in danger of being neglected.

This is a really interesting bit of food for thought about the coursebooks we work with and the kind of subliminal (or very blatant!) messages that exist in them....John Gray is a very interesting speaker, too - highly recommended!
