The Big Picture

The Big Picture | TELT | Scoop.it

Mark Clarkson shares a nice activity using photographs in the news for a UK high school citizenship class.  He says

 

"It has helped to improve speaking and listening skills within the class, as well as social skills and turn taking. It’s also improved our relationship and on those occasions where I’ve been too busy or forgotten to do this I get moans and complaints – so I’d call that a success."

 

Sounds perfect for EFL too.

Ideas for an IWB…

Ideas for an IWB… | TELT | Scoop.it

EFL teacher Sandy Millin says

 

"I shared these ideas and links with colleagues at my school during a 45-minute workshop. They are meant to help us all get more use out of our electronic whiteboards, which are sometimes only used as an oversize television, or at best a way to access Google. I presented four tools, and demonstrated a couple of ways to use each of them. Since I’m not too confident with the pen functions of our IWBs, and the calibration needs to be redone quite regularly, all of these tools could equally well be used with projector too."

Les compétences des élèves en compréhension des langues vivantes étrangères en fin de collège - Ministère de l'Éducation nationale

Les compétences des élèves en compréhension des langues vivantes étrangères en fin de collège - Ministère de l'Éducation nationale | TELT | Scoop.it

"En fin de collège, les performances des élèves, évalués en compréhension de l’oral et de l’écrit en anglais, espagnol et allemand, diminuent globalement entre 2004 et 2010. C’est ce qu’il ressort d’un cycle d’évaluations sur échantillon portant sur l’évolution du niveau des élèves en compréhension des langues vivantes étrangères, à des moments-clés de leur cursus scolaire. Les compétences dans les activités d’expression orale en continu ou en interaction n’ont pu être évaluées dans ce dispositif d'enquête."

Audacity tutorial: Tim Brooks

Audacity tutorial: Tim Brooks | TELT | Scoop.it

This is a lovely Audacity tutorial by Tim Brooks.  Nicely paced video tutorials that will help you get started painlessly, and a few tips and tricks for experienced users too.

 

For language teachers, it's definitely worth taking the time to set this up on your computer so that you can record yourself or other advanced speakers to make teaching materials, or record your learners to monitor their speaking skills.

How Teachers Are Making Cell Phones Work in the Classroom

How Teachers Are Making Cell Phones Work in the Classroom | TELT | Scoop.it

Interesting example of using mobile apps in high school classes:

 

"Students work in groups, and when they have a question, they call him over. He arrives with iPad in hand and records his voice and his writing on the iPad, which he immediately uploads to the class website so other students can benefit from the explanations instantaneously. (This, by the way, is another form of flipped teaching, he says.)

 

This way, if I need to explain a common question, everyone can access it,” he says. “I don’t have to repeat myself going from group to group.” But rather than stop what everybody else is doing so he can explain a concept, students can watch the video he just created if they need to. “I’ll just tell them to look at the online tutorials to find out about common questions,” he says."

Langues sur objectifs spécifiques : entre l'approche communicative et la perspective actionnelle : Christian Puren

Langues sur objectifs spécifiques : entre l'approche communicative et la perspective actionnelle : Christian Puren | TELT | Scoop.it

"Reprise, sous forme d'un diaporama sonorisé ((au format Flash + MP3) d'une durée d'1h40), de la conférence donnée par Christian Puren à l'Universidade do Minho (Braga, Portugal) le 28 avril 2012, dans le cadre du séminiare "Five years of Bologna."

 

Les trois grandes idées développées de manière articulée dans cette conférence, et qui y sont illustrées concrètement par des reproductions d’unités didactiques de manuels de français langue étrangère, sont les suivantes :

 

1) La mise en oeuvre de la perspective actionnelle diffère très sensiblement de celle de l’approche communicative, en raison, notamment, des implications pratiques du passage du paradigme de la communication au paradigme de l’action.

 

2) La perspective actionnelle est structurellement plus adaptée aux objectifs de l’enseignement des langues à visée professionnelle que l’approche communicative.

 

3) La perspective actionnelle, en tant que perspective de l’agir social, permet de penser en cohérence, et de travailler en parallèle, la formation pour le domaine éducationnel (ici, la formation à l’apprentissage des langues-cultures), pour le domaine public (la formation à la citoyenneté dans une société multilingue et multiculturelle) et pour le domaine professionnel (la formation au travail en entreprise)."

Leo Selivan: Live_Listening

Leo Selivan with the British Council in Israel shares a chunk listening lesson plan based on the lexical approach.

 

"While you speak, students should note down useful chunks of language they hear. Students do not have to be familiar with the lexical approach, which is actually the underlying principle in this activity (see below); a brief explanation on what a chunk is should normally suffice"

"Dans ce modèle, les contenus de cours sont livrés au moyen de ressources consultables en ligne – le plus souvent des capsules vidéo – et le temps de classe est exclusivement consacré à des projets d’équipe, à des échanges avec l’enseignant et entre pairs, à des exercices pratiques et autres activités de collaboration."
