The "draw" of drawing

As a language teacher, I often use drawing as a way for students to "learn" language. Students love drawing and it is a very motivating tool that almost every student enjoys Even those students who have difficulty drawing can have fun given a teacher that shows their own inept drawing ability and keeps things "light".

 

I wrote "learn" because the real purpose of getting students drawing is not so they "learn" language but rather unconsciously acquire language.…

Odopod online drawing

Kids love to draw. Heck, everyone loves to draw. (see my blog post, "The Draw of Drawing" for many ideas) And Odopod's Sketchpad is the absolute best on the Web. I've long had it on our site map (look at the bottom category). However, they've recently redesigned and it is cooler than ever!



With the sketchpad, you can make a sketch and… Continue

Funny Door Mats

I'm a big fan of drawing in the EFL Classroom 2.0.  Last night, my parents related a story about a neighbors door mat (pictured). I immediately thought "LESSON!", so here it is. 

 

It would be great…

My head's spinning but I'm loving it [Classroom escapades 03]

It's the end of week 3 of my new Ning-multimedia class.



There's so much happening at times that I can scarcely keep up. So where to start? Well here's some of the highlights and issues I'm thinking about.



The building of community



The students are posting incredibly supportive comments to each other. And it's not empty rhetoric. They're making connections to their own lives - making comparisons and offering support and encouragement.…

Featured Resource: Storyboards

Storyboards are an excellent resource that allows students to creatively produce language. 

They can either be drawn by students (see the template) and then the students tell the story. Or, they can be predone and students use to tell the story or write out the…

Pixton - one of many comic generators

Today's site comes from a fellow EFL Classroomer, Michael Stout. It is Pixton, a site from Adobe which allows students/teachers to create comics quickly and "funly".



I really like this one! Previously, on a substantial thread, we discussed many other comic makers but this one… Continue

Youtube 4 Teachers

Video Rulz! However for teachers, youtube can be problematic in the classroom. Too many distractions, too many ads. The students are busy looking at all the other stuff and not focusing on the main video.

On The Shoulders of Regular Joe Teachers

giants These few words today are in thanks to all those I've learned from. The thousands of teachers I've trained and spoken with, the thousands of teachers sharing online and who've I've "nudged mouses" with, the many teachers I've had the pleasure of joining in their own classrooms, the teachers who've I've corresponded with by email AND even the teachers I've never even touched bases with (for all knowledge flows, like water). Hat's off to you all.



We often think we rest on… Continue

First Peoples/ First Nations of the World- an ongoing project

Netsilik Inuit- Canadian Artic





Kiashuk, admired as one of the greatest Inuit (Netsilik) artists, died in 1966, nearly eighty years old. He was renowned among his people as a hunter, a storyteller, and a singer of the old songs. His drawings and prints portray all aspects of Inuit life, hunting, fishing, and the world of the spirits.

Ed Tech: Yesterday & Today

Technology has been used in education since the first teacher scratched a drawing on a rock face.  What's interesting is how it has evolved and spread so that it is ubiquitous, in the background, taken for granted.

That's the point we need to reach - so the use of the technology doesn't interfere at…

My winter camp idea, any thoughts?

Here's my proposal for my winter camp. Any thoughts? Would middle school kids enjoy this? I really want to work on things like reading and writing. The kids I teach really need help in that area.



Non-fiction Reading and Writing

Class final project: Class portfolio of writing in a newspaper format.

Objectives: To increase students’ interest for reading short books, write book reports and present them, and work on editing and publishing students’ writing into a finished… Continue

Inspiring & motivating - how it should be

I'm a newbie here.



I teach ESL (settlement English) to adult refugees and immigrants.



My class has been working this term to create short movies about 'How to catch public transport' for students at a lower level. It has been a steep learning curve for us all but oh so inspiring in so many ways. They have just gone for it. They're engaged, excited and teaching each other along the way. I'm stepping into the background - there to support if needed.



Now we' re… Continue

Do Teachers Kill Creativity

Do teachers kill creativity? What is the harm that a "teacher" does, just by being a teacher? Do we indeed stunt student achievement, growth and "thought" by our mere presence as a model and person to look up to and copy/become?

The #1 .... (way to choose students)

Number One ** Not your ordinary, endless list - just what's number 1.



Mickey Mouse built a house



Choosing students, whether individuals or groups - is something every teacher has to do. And you have to be fair about it. There is nothing that will kill a class quicker than a teacher being seen as "unfair".



So what's the best way? Rock, Scissors, Paper is… Continue
