The Backchannel: Giving Every Student a Voice in the Blended Mobile Classroom | Teaching and Learning English in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Over 12 years ago, as Todd Curtis and his teaching partner tried to get all of their eighth graders engaged in class discussions, they noticed a trend. Though students talked freely outside of class, they became silent in class. As an experiment, they jury-rigged their email system into a backchannel.

When Writing Gets Loud: Integrating Speaking and Writing

When Writing Gets Loud: Integrating Speaking and Writing | Teaching and Learning English in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

During timed writing assignments in the average class, students write their essays while instructors enforce a culture of quiet. Students are actively discouraged from talking to each other, and even conversations relevant to the task at hand, such as one student asking another how to spell a word, execute an idiomatic phrase, or provide the translation of a word or expression into English from their shared native language, are effectively discouraged. Time is called, students turn in their essays to be critiqued by their instructors. Once graded, the essays are returned to students for review and, possibly, error analysis and revision.

Some nicely designed interactive materials based around short film clips. Useful content for self access learning.

Whilst there may be links for Media here, these films are also very useful for PSE and discussion in form period. Worth a look!
