iTILT Training Handbook

Handbook with suggestions on how to use the IWB for the key curriculum areas in modern language education.

Via Graham Stanley
Shona Whyte's insight:

The iTILT manual provides advice on using the IWB in language teaching at all educational levels (young learners to adults and university students) and proficiencies (beginners through advanced).  There are examples of teaching activities for different language learning objectives such as speaking, listening, grammar and pronunciation, as well as criteria for materials development designed to help teachers make their own IWB files.

To read better, improve your pronunciation?

To read better, improve your pronunciation? | TELT | Scoop.it

ELT blogger Rachel Roberts: "To read better, improve your pronunciation…. from a talk by Catherine Walter."

Shona Whyte's insight:

According to Roberts, Walter's research suggests we "sub-vocalise and record the sound of what we are reading," and so "we would be better off teaching [learners] to improve how they ‘mentally represent spoken language’ than teaching comprehension skills."

From Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) to Mobile Assisted Language Use (MALU)

From Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) to Mobile Assisted Language Use (MALU) | TELT | Scoop.it

In this recent TESL-EJ articles, Jarvis and Achilleos review different  terminology for connecting technology and SLA (TELL, WELL, NBLL).  On the basis of questionnaire data showing EFL users' preferences for mobile technology, they suggest changing two letters in the CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) acronym: Computer becomes Mobile and Learning become Use in MALU (Mobile Assisted Language Use).

 

The authors conclude that "MALU now needs to be our defining point of reference in keeping TESOL at the vanguard."

Shona Whyte's insight:

Which I suppose is fine if English is your frame of reference.  If the field is to include other languages, it's not so easy to make the argument.

7 sites où il est bon de surfer pour trouver des illustrations, des oeuvres d’art, des photos… | TELT | Scoop.it

Le moteur de google est tant exhaustif qu’il en est parfois inexploitable pour certains besoins. De plus, Google est très bon pour les mots, mais beaucoup moins bon pour les illustrations même si d’énormes progrès ont été fait dernièrement. Fort de ce constat, pour mes besoins propres et surtout à la demande d’un lecteur, je me  suis mis en quête de trouver des sites internet  où se trouvent en priorité des illustrations, des œuvres d’art et des photos.  Pour l’illustrer un peu mon billet, j’ai fait des recherches avec le mot “blond”.
