"Application disponible via le navigateur chrome qui permet de faire des commentaires audio sur tous les documents textes disponibles sur Google Drive"


Via Elena Pérez, Chris Jaeglin
Shona Whyte's insight:

Très simple à utiliser pour les googleheads - il faut être sur Chrome avec un gmail et G-Drive.

 

On rajoute le plug-in depuis le Chrome Web Store, et ensuite on peut ouvrir un document en mode Commentaires vocaux, ce qui permet de surligner une partie du texte et enregistrer de l'audio.  

 

Si on partage le document, un lien vers chaque piste audio apparaît sous le menu commentaires.  Pour les apprenants de langue, un enseignant peut donner la pronunciation d'un mot, par exemple, ou proposer un retour à l'oral plutôt qu'écrit.  

 

On peut imaginer d'autres activitiés collaboratives du moment que les apprenants installent le même plug-in sur leur machine.

How to use the IWB to ... [Library | itilt.eu]

How to use the IWB to ... [Library | itilt.eu] | TELT | Scoop.it

The iTILT project has added some articles under a rubric entitled "iTILT Partner Clip Selection" which give examples of the IWB being used in language teaching for efficiency, authenticity, interaction, and learner-centred activities.  You can access these from the library on http://itilt.eu, using the iTILT Partner Clip Selection button which is circled in the screenshot above.

Shona Whyte's insight:

We're hoping these examples will be useful for teacher education by adding a little more depth to the wide range of classroom examples in our data base.

Defragmenting Foreign Language Learning – Marisa Constantinides

Defragmenting Foreign Language Learning – Marisa Constantinides | TELT | Scoop.it

"In the same way, the ‘McNuggeting’ of language knowledge bytes leads to fragmentation and lack of ability to access language and be able to use it in a natural and fluent way."

 

This resonates with Leaky Grammar's post on improvisation http://sco.lt/8FVUnp


because for Marisa Constantinides, Step 1 on the path to defragmented (or holistic) language teaching is "Sustained talk / long turns."


Exactly what Bobby McFerrin says in the video on improvisation: if you want to sing well, you have to practice singing for a long time.


 

Shona Whyte's insight:

(Maybe this is all too elliptical and I need to write a blog post.  On my 2 year-old blog that has one post so far :-)

Improvisation and Language Learning: Leaky Grammar

Improvisation and Language Learning: Leaky Grammar | TELT | Scoop.it

“Improvisation can be considered the fifth skill — the skill which follows reading, listening, speaking, and writing. In many ways, it is the most important because it is the real test of whether students can use what they have learned without being told exactly what to do or say."


Maurer, Jay. (1997). Presentation, Practice, and Production in the EFL Class. The Language Teacher, 21 (9), 42-45.

Shona Whyte's insight:

This is interesting for lots of reasons.  For those of us burdened with the CER, the "fifth skill" is interaction, which might also be considered the more improvised or least plannable.  And students used to less communicative approaches tend to cling to planned, written and/or memorised scripts for any oral work.  Young learners are taught routines by rote: What's your name?  My name is ____.

 

Unplanned, spontaneous production (and of course the other side of the coin - comprehension of unprepared speech) is what we're after.  Teachers differ on how much of the "theory" as McFerrin puts it is needed up front.  He thinks none; many language teachers would disagree.  My modest goal is to show learners that they can cobble together something new with only a few language elements, and that this both difficult and worthwhile for their ongoing language learning, and therefore worth practicing.

A Complete EFL Teacher Training Course Online

A Complete EFL Teacher Training Course Online | TELT | Scoop.it

Shaping the Way We Teach English is a fantastic resource that I came across recently. The resource is similar to other online courses from colleges and universities. It's free and accessible through The Online Language Center of the University of Oregon and it is a pretty complete teacher training course that has videos , viewing tasks, transcripts, observation checklists and even recommended supplementary web based reading.


Via Nik Peachey
Shona Whyte's insight:

Nik Peachey recently reflagged this 2009 resource from the University of Oregon.  I watched a 10-minute video on managing large classes, which is full of sensible advice with examples of classroom interaction in a wide variety of teaching contexts.  Good for self-study for pre-service and new teachers, but probably better as a resource to stimulate discussion during a teacher education course.

even if it's not CLIL oriented, a nice colection of videos focusing on key aspects  of Language Teaching.

Online and free!

Angela K. Adams's curator insight, October 21, 2015 9:27 PM

Teacher issues - I chose this resource because it discusses a variety of strategies to implement during and English lesson that even includes technology.  I hope to share this resource with other English teachers to give them more ideas on how to get their students more engaged and involved in their lessons as they will add variety to their instructional strategies.

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.
