Quest: text adventure games

Quest: text adventure games | TELT | Scoop.it

My adventurous colleague Margarita Georgieva, who teaches EFL in higher education, recommends Quest.  Download the programme to your computer (she uses it with students in a computer lab), then play or create text games.

 

Reading, writing, collaboration, clear authentic task ...  Don't know if I'm ready to take the plunge, but interested to hear from others who have.

Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Higher Education

Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Higher Education | TELT | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein of User Generated Education has this extremely well-documented and readable article, including information, illustrations, links and examples of pedagogical changes linked to technology integration in post-secondary education.

 

It's relevant to my own teaching/training context in the French university system; these quotes stand out for me:

 

- Educators need to be re-educated as to what to do with the class time that previously was used for their lectures.

- Learning institutions are no longer the gatekeepers to information. Anyone with connections to the internet has access to high level, credible content.

- The educator becomes a facilitator and tour guide of learning possibilities – offering these possibilities to the learners and then getting out of the way.

 

Without wishing to make spurious or superficial connections, it seems these points also apply to modern language teachers moving from grammar-translation to more communicative and/or task-based approaches to language teaching.  Teachers trained in grammar-based approaches need to learn how to plan and implement different types of learning activities.  They need to adapt to the fact that their learners can access good target language input and information without their teachers' help.  And they need to de-centre their teaching to allow learners the opportunity to use the language amongst themselves.
