I was wondering what you all thought of learning designs pertaining to English language teaching? What are the ways in which you design your lessons to achieve better learning in your students?Continue

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

Posted on February 8, 2008 at 8:53am 1 Comment

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.…

The chaos begins (NOT) - jumping into the deep end with my ESL students

Posted on January 30, 2008 at 6:04am 0 Comments

Well we're taking the journey further into the world of Ning in my class.

Today we went through some different features of our class Ning and we jointly composed a response to a Forum topic and a Blog post (before I deleted it when I accidentally pressed backspace - Memo to self - teach students about saving drafts). The shared writing gave them a much needed foundation. It seemed to help them when they were in the computer lab.

As they're learning so many new multimedia… Continue

The Ning adventure begins in my class - Can you join us?

Posted on January 29, 2008 at 2:16pm 2 Comments

This week I started using a Ning network with my English as a Second Language class.

It's an exciting, challenging time for me working with a group of students with vastly differing levels of ICT knowledge. Some have studied in the field while others have had very little experience with computers.

My big lesson this week is Model, model, model and small, small, small. In the excitement of it all, I think I tried to get too many things going on the Ning… Continue

Global connections

Posted on December 14, 2007 at 10:43pm 2 Comments

Yesterday I showed the students my personal ning page with the class videos section. I've made the videos 'just for pals' to ensure their security so only a few people can see them. They were so excited when they saw the few comments there especially knowing that they were from teachers in other parts of the world. Very big smiles all around.

On a different note, we also watched some interviews the students had shot the previous week at our Showcase (… Continue

Students wow the Audience with their Multimedia Show

Posted on December 7, 2007 at 9:30pm 7 Comments

Thursday 6 December

I'm still on a high and can't stop smiling about it.

I'm so proud - I just keep walking around saying 'I'm so proud'

'So professional'

On Thursday my ESL students presented their 'How to catch Public Transport' Showcase to the University community. It was a real triumph in so many ways. The presenters spoke confidently, clearly and with a real enthusiasm. They rose to the occasion to use an old cliche. Our technology managers… Continue

Hi Greg I have joined this ning to learn and share with you and the people involved in the ning. Im am starting a new role as an Ultranet Coach in our region, Victoria Australia in 2008. Our role will be to support schools in our area try and experiment with some of the wonderful ICT tools the world of web 2.0 provides, nings and wiki included. I hope to keep up with your forums, chats etc and learn from the people involved in this ning.

Talk soon.....Simon

It would be excellent to view your students' videos.
We will be back to the classroom next Monday, Jan 7, 2008. I'm going to tell my students about this interesting exchange and motivate them to produce and upload (or give me their videos and permission to upload them). My students have just started to study English but they are eager to start using the target language. Their level is beginners, I guess false beginners for some of them.
Some students from this beginning level have done simple videos about introducing themselves. I already have their permission to upload them. I thought about uploading them to TeacherTube but I would like to know how to do it here, at Ning. By the way, where can I find information about having a private Ning?
Also, some other students from the last term already gave me their permission to show the world what they have done. These students are from a low advanced level, which corresponds to about 400 hours of instruction.
Well, this is in short what my students are doing and have done.
CU Around ;)

Hi Greg,
It is amazing to realize what students can do with technology. I have many good experiences, as well as my students in doing a similar project as yours. Students feel they are other persons when somebody abroad watches what they are doing. This also helps them to grow academically and personally.
Keep on doing the same good work.

By the way, would it be possible to encourage some activities exchange among your students and mine? I mean, they can exchange ideas, opinions, and their work by inviting them to watch their work -already uploaded.
My students speak Spanish as their mother tongue but this MUST be done in English so they can have real opportunities to use the target language. Don't you think so?
Waiting for your answer.
