Timelines and Concept Questions:






( ̴ practising speech acts)

9  /  12th Nov








Focus: to be determined according to needs / wishes of group

Concept questions exercise


time management for teacher --> good overview of available time-slots when you can work / spreading out marking-intensive work over semester (as far as possible) / nice-to-have materials vs. essential materials / intelligent document-storing system.

additional tasks with coursebook -->buy resource books (available in school library?) / google / talk to colleagues

Techniques and strategies to detect and prevent problematic classroom situations. I think that teachers who are new on the job really need to visualize and anticipate difficult and unforeseeable disruptions in theory before they actually occur in class...  your position in the classroom, moving around, be unpredictable as to where you might be
Proper lesson preparation, discussing possible strategies to keep up a "healthy" life-work balance despite not having any classroom experience nor last year's material to fall back on ;) (see above + discussion today)

 10 /  19th Nov


Focus: ICT in EFL:


-  build your pbworks.com wiki from here: https://plans.pbworks.com/signup/edubasic20

-  Tutorials about pbworks can be found here: http://edumanual.pbworks.com/w/page/57903873/Pages

-  try out features: formatting text, inserting pictures, movies, links / creating new pages and linking them up --> Navigation through site.

-  looking at grammar exercise production tools / vocab tools

-  start your project.



Project guidelines:


1  Look at one type of ICT tools (e.g. grammar exercises, vocab) and compare their usefulness in class – according to a set of criteria which you will set up first.

     Possible ispiration: https://www.td.org/Publications/Magazines/TD/TD-Archive/2012/07/How-to-Effectively-Evaluate-E-Learning   /   http://www.slideshare.net/ConstantLearning/hkfedced-1010


2  Design a project in English for a level that you choose. It will stretch across several lessons (decide how many) and various different ICT Tools should predominantly be used.

  • The basic working tool is your PBworks wiki, from where the description of the project, as well as all the necessary instructions for students, weblinks, documents and illustrations are provided. 

  • Decide which other tools from the list of suggested webpages/tools in this course should be used. Their use must make sense for the tasks designed. Think of possible mobile phone tasks, if they are called for.

  • Give clear instructions about how students' project results should be presented / provided.


  • The design of the project and all the materials necessary to actually use it in class should be ready for presentation in sessions 12 and 13, on December 3rd / 10th 2015.
