Session Title: 

ICT4ELT

 


 

Abstract:  

Designed by a seasoned team of  long standing EVO moderators and participants, ICT4ELT (Information and Communication Technology for English Language Teachers) is a session for teachers who want to explore how computers and computer technology could be useful in their teaching but do not know where to start.

If you want to liven up your classroom with technology, come and join us!

 

 


 

Target audience:

 

EFL / ESL teachers and educators with little or no experience in teaching with computers and online web 2.0 tools. More experienced teachers and educators are welcome too as they can learn from the session's content as well as from the participants' discussions. 

 

Session objectives: 

 

At the end of the 5 weeks, participants, collaboratively and hands on, will have...

  • used various synchronous and asynchronous Web tools for learning and teaching EFL/ESL, 
  • interacted through e-mail, text chat, voice chat, voice and video mail, and distribution lists, among others, 
  • created wikis, blogs, podcasts and interactive exercises related to their own contexts, 
  • reflected on ways of applying those tools to their teaching, either online or face-to-face.

 

 

Week 1:

14-20 Jan. 2018

 

Getting to know each other and the cyber landscape

In this first week, participants will become familiar with session wiki, introduce themselves and get to know each other using a Google Community. They will post some information about themselves and complete an ice breaking activity using the Google Community. To collect more relevant data about participants, a Google form will be used. In addition to this hands-on approach, participants will also read texts that will help them become successful e-tutors and e-learners.  

 

 


Week 2:

21-27 Jan. 2018

 

Communication tools and Mobile learning

In the second week of the session participants will explore audio, video, and chat communication tools. We will also take this opportunity to explore mobile learning connected with these tools. There will be synchronous and asynchronous text chat and voice interactions  held by session moderators with participants throughout the week. For this kind of communication they will be using Skype. Other tools such as Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, and Instagram will be explored due to  the potential they hold for communication and specifically, mobile learning.  In addition, we will explore Padlet for sharing audio and video messages and Twitter as a means of curating the web and connecting to like-minded peers. There will be an online live session, where participants explore the use of synchronous and asynchronous communication tools in teaching.

 


 

Week 3:

28 Jan.-3 Feb. 2018

 

Presentation Tools, Blogs and Wikis 

In the third week we will have a look at different tools for processing photos or pictures and creating video-like presentations. We will use PhotoPeach, Animoto, Flickr and Youtube. In addition, a choice of optional multimedia tools for more advanced users will be provided, such as Slideshare, Capzles and Sliderocket/Prezi. Participants will use a selection of tried and tested multimedia tools. They will be able to make their multimedia creations visible online through blogs or wikis and share them with other participants. 

 


 

Week 4:

4-10 Feb. 2018

 

Interactive exercises and quizzes

Participants will learn how to create their own interactive exercises and quizzes for the classroom and make them visible online.  They will share their creations on the course wiki as well as other platforms like blogs or wikis. They will explore Edmodo and learn about quizzes and polls created there. 

 

 


 

Week 5: 

11-17 Feb. 2018

 

Cooperating online & wrap-up. 

During the last week, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on how they may use the tools they have seen during these weeks in their classrooms. They are also invited to share contact information in order to find future partners and develop collaborative projects between classes.  There will be a live session where participants become familiar with Webheads In Action (WIA) and how to share post-ICT4ELT work. By the end of this final week, participants will share their reflections on ICT4ELT, complete the EVO final survey and join the live "Graduation ceremony". Participants will be invited to join the WIA community of practice.
