Listening Journals: Anthony teacher

Listening Journals: Anthony teacher | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Listening Journals are a project/concept I have been toying with for the past few years and have been putting into practice into all my listening classes. I have presented the idea to colleagues in numerous settings and the ideas have been well received.

The basic premise is that students need both extensive and intensive listening practice. Extensive listening practice involves students listening to interesting, enjoyable and meaningful listening texts at or around their level. Intensive listening practice, in terms of listening journals, is exploiting these texts to practice important bottom-up listening skills (e.g. decoding). The journals in their various permutations set students on weekly or daily listening tasks that involve both aspects of listening while giving them a space for metacognitive reflection.

Examples of how to implement this with learners, and links for listening practice

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, September 16, 2015 10:34 PM

This is a great idea to get students listening to English outside of class!  The possibilities are endless and having students share their journal entries in small groups would be a great way to get classmates to listen to other genres (book, news article, podcast, etc.).  This article includes several sites for students to use, some of them quite familiar and loved.

Marisa Constantinides says: "Technology has been a part of the syllabus for a long time, although it is true that many centres still opt not to train their candidates in its uses for the same reasons that trainees resist it: ignorance, lack of confidence, lack of conviction in its educational value and just plain shirking one’s duty as a trainer – in the same way that some teachers shirk their duty as teachers."
