Blubbr - Make Youtube Quizzes | TELT | Scoop.it

David Deubelbeiss of English Central and EFL Classroom 2.0 recommends this quiz maker, saying it has the "most potential of any Youtube quiz maker. It has an attractive interface, is well laid out and designed and the library is very accessible.  One downside - it doesn't allow you to edit the quiz after you've produced it (usually the case with just launched sites).  I'm sure they'll work things out"

Shona Whyte's insight:

Many of my undergraduate EFL students are big fans of English Central, so there is certainly an interest in video-based quizzes as an entertaining form of self-study.

Video-Based Response & Revision: Dialogic Instruction Using Video and Web 2.0 Technologies

Video-Based Response & Revision: Dialogic Instruction Using Video and Web 2.0 Technologies | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

Description of methodology for using technology to support and research the development of dialogic instruction in a collaboratively oriented teacher education course.

 

Anne Heintz, Carlin Borsheim, Samantha Caughlan, & Mary M. Juzwik; Michigan State University

 

Michael B. Sherry; Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania

 

Abstract

This article documents the curricular decisions made by a teacher educator research team whose guiding theoretical focus for intern practice is dialogic instruction. Over a 2-year sequence, teaching interns used video and Web 2.0 technologies to respond critically to and revise their teaching practices in collaboration with peers and instructors. This article describes how a focus on dialogic instruction and an adoption of a multiliteracies pedagogy guided the implementation and use of technologies within the project. Through multiple examples of curriculum, including excerpts from course materials, screencasts of the adopted networking platform, Voicethread, and video of class sessions, the authors describe how a focus on the dialogic creates spaces for interactions that allow responsive and revisionary attitudes toward not only teaching practices, but the potential and place of technologies in teacher education.

Perceptions of the IWB for language teaching: iTILT

Shona Whyte:

One or two slides from our presentation on our European project iTILT (interactive Technologies in Language Teaching http://itilt.eu) co-authored with project partners Gary Beauchamp and Emily Hillier and delivered on the final day of the EuroCALL conference in Gothenburg, Sweden.

 

A write-up will appear in the conference proceedings scheduled for December 2012, just around the time our video clips of language teaching with the interactive whiteboard go live.  

 

After piloting at the start of the academic year, the site will be opened for free public access to our bank of some 200 classroom illustrations in different languages, contexts, and proficiency levels, allowing language teachers and trainers to see the IWB in use and read associated comments by teachers and learners, as well as download lesson plans and materials.

dotSUB: video with interactive transcription

dotSUB: video with interactive transcription | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

The free subtitling platform for video has added a new feature for users:

”We want video with the transcription! We want it to highlight the currently spoken line! We want it to seek when I click on a line in the transcription!”

 

So now you can make your own transcriptions of videos, embed both in your webpage for users to watch and read interactively (like TED talks).

 

The dotSUB site was already very useful for language teachers and learners: the transcription tool is easy to learn, and anyone can save and share transcriptions, making it possible to translate the same clip into different languages.  Teachers can find resources, or subtitle their own choices in the original language or in translation to help listening comprehension, and learners can make their own subtitles for close listening and/or translation practice.

luisa pasquali's comment, January 24, 2013 8:00 AM
In my opinion this website s pretty well structured. It is true that it is not very easy to navigate but I think once you get the hang of it, you will not have problems. I agree about the fact that the website it´s more appropriate for adults and not beginners learnears of English. What I like the most about this site is that all the videos have transcriptions, which may be very usefully for a learners.
Benjamin Binzer's comment, January 24, 2013 8:01 AM
I agree, it's really not easy to navigate through the website which is a bit annoying. I also agree that the website is more appropriate for adult learners and therefore not really useful for secondary school, not even for 10th grade in my opinion.
What I want to add is that you can prepare and do exercises for an IELTS test. So if a pupil wants to go to USA, for example, you can recommend him this page as an exercise page. The test itself seems helpful, but I am not an expert concerning IELTS.

Video Self-Assessment for Language Learners

Video Self-Assessment for Language Learners | TELT | Scoop.it

Rob Hirschel, Sojo University, Japan Craig Yamamoto, Sojo University, Japan Peter Lee, Sojo University, Japan Hirschel, R., Yamamoto, C., & Lee, P. (2012). Video self-assessment for language learners.  Studies in Self-Access Learning Journal, 3 (3), 291-309.

 

Abstract:

Students were video recorded performing similar tasks at both the outset of the academic year in April and towards the year-end in December. Student participants (N=123) viewed both videos in December and completed identical questionnaires with regard to both videos. The questionnaire sought to elicit students’ (1) satisfaction with their English ability, (2) interest in speaking English, (3) ability to interact in English, (4) enjoyment of communication in English, and (5) confidence in speaking English. Mean scores for all items were higher (all statistically significant) for the December videos. In a similar survey comparing students’ perceptions of improvement during their eight months of study, learners participating in the video treatment (N=143) reported higher scores of improvement than the control group (N=107) for all items (2, 4, and 5 achieving statistical significance). Initial results appear to indicate that student videos are correlated with a positive effect upon students’ interest in, enjoyment of, and confidence in speaking English, but not with perceptions of increased general English ability or ability to interact in English. The findings are applicable to teachers and advisors of individual learners, who wish to empower their students in realizing progress for language learning endeavors that can sometimes seem tenuous.

Critical thinking: British Council Teaching English

Critical thinking: British Council Teaching English | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

Interesting 10 minute video of an EFL lesson based on critical thinking.  The starting question is "which is bigger, Australia or Greenland?" and Alister Widdowson presents this lesson for what looks like a B2 young learners class.

 

Lots of inventive use of physical props as well as technology (IWB used for voting at 7:25) and we see the learners working in groups, though no specific language work - it might have been a CLIL class.

 

Alister Widdowson sums up:

"the hook is the question, and if you've got that fascinating question, then as long as the question stays interesting, you've got the attention of the learners and I think so much of effective learning is about motivation, wanting to be there, wanting to listen, wanting to understand."  Indeed.

Kalinago English (EFL teacher, trainer and materials writer Karenne Joy Sylvester):
"I'm fond of using TED with my adult language learners (+ similar sites - see here for a list of others) for the ingenuity and its realistic relevance and because I know that whenever I visit TED I'll always find short, topical talks which can be used to kick-off real discussions within my classroom: stuff my adult students want to know and talk more about... speeches that will either captivate their interest or through understanding, even with lower students at only 50%, will encourage them to feel a greater motivation about where their English is going."

The Full Picture onThe Flipped Classroom:

The Full Picture onThe Flipped Classroom: | TELT | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein says:

"I have been writing about and presenting on Flipped Classroom Model: The Full Picture for about a year now. The model that I propose is one where video lectures and tutorials fall within a larger framework of learning activities. I am titling it the Flipped Classroom Model to get folks’ attention given the Flipped Classroom popularity right now. It really is a experiential cycle of learning, where the video lectures support not drive the learning process.

A major roadblock or barrier to implementing the flipped classroom is that many educators do not know what to do in the classroom with the time once spent doing lectures. For educators, who are used to and use the didactic model, a framework is needed to assist them with the implementation of the Flipped Classroom."
