Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC

Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | Linguistics | Scoop.it

In this research paper Graham Hall and Guy Cook explore teacher attitudes to own-language use in the classroom. They conducted a global survey and interviews with practising teachers.
They found evidence of widespread own-language use within ELT, and suggest that teachers’ attitudes towards own-language use, and their classroom practices, are more complex than usually acknowledged. The findings also suggest that there is a potential gap between mainstream ELT literature and teachers’ practices on the ground.

7 Reasons You Need to Try Voice Typing in Google Docs | Shake Up Learning

7 Reasons You Need to Try Voice Typing in Google Docs | Shake Up Learning | Linguistics | Scoop.it
As a former ELA teacher, I am naturally drawn to technology that supports reading and writing. Google Docs is fully-loaded with some features that can save us time in and out of the classroom, and often times can even save us a little heartache when it comes to supporting students.

One tiny little feature that packs an amazing punch is Voice Typing in Google Docs. This is a speech-to-text feature that is built-in to the most popular word processor in the world, and it is available to you and your students if you have a microphone in your devices.

You can dictate all kinds of words, lists, and writing into Google Docs. You can also dictate formatting, punctuation, and editing. But wait…there’s more! YOU CAN DICTATE IN OTHER LANGUAGES!!!!! WHOA!!!!
