Trasformar euna presentazione in una storia da raccontare: lo sforzo più complesso!

Nathan Schultz's curator insight, November 25, 2015 4:22 PM

This presentations clearly explains what makes a good story - you need to devise conflict, develop characters and add efficient details.  I enjoy this presentation because it explains the details of storywriting with a variety of interesting visuals, which makes it more entertaining to read.

Interaction and interactivity in technology-rich second language classrooms: the iTILT project in France

Interaction in the target language at the IWB | itilt.eu | Teaching (EFL & other teaching-learning related issues) | Scoop.it

When we discuss the use of interactive whiteboards in education, we often assume that the mere use of interactive technologies will ensure that classroom teaching and learning will also become somehow "interactive." This might mean physical activity on the part of learners - as in Dewey and Bruner's learning by doing, or Asher's Total Physical Response - but in the second language classroom, we more naturally think of interaction in the target language.  So we might expect that using an interactive whiteboard should promote interaction in terms of communication between the teacher and learners, and among learners.

 

Communicative language teaching (CLT), involving meaningful use of language, and task-based language teaching (TBLT) are, of course, the main current approaches to second language teaching and learning, and so it is helpful to see examples of classroom activities where the IWB is used to support spontaneous, unplanned communication in authentic contexts.  However, this type of communication is not always possible or indeed desirable at all stages of proficiency and in all phases of a lesson or longer teaching unit.  In the following examples, we can see the IWB being used to support different types of language interaction, from the practice of decontextualised language elements in order to focus on pronunciation or grammar, through more open-ended activities, to genuine communication in the target language.

I like the way she tells her audience of EFL teachers to join in not by pretending to be 8 year olds, but as teachers modelling for their young learners.

Using group work in large classes | TeachingEnglish (British Council | BBC)

Using group work in large classes | TeachingEnglish (British Council | BBC) | Teaching (EFL & other teaching-learning related issues) | Scoop.it

"In this programme we look at a reality many teachers face: very large classes – and using group work as a technique to get everyone working actively. We hear from teachers on how they use group work and look at techniques for managing large classes. How do you feel about teaching large classes?"

 

Programme Summary: Large classes are a reality for many teachers around the world – especially in the state sector. If we want to develop our students’ fluency and ability to communicate in English then using group work will help. If set up carefully, it will give all the students a chance to participate and practise. The teacher’s role changes during group work. While the students work in groups the teacher moves away from the front of the class and quietly monitors. During this part of the lesson, you are giving more responsibility to your students and there are many rewards. Group work can be highly motivating for students. They participate and are active and we can
draw on our students’ own knowledge and experience. As Mirany says, ‘Dynamism springs from the group’
