The #1 ..... (teacher training course)

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

Teaching on the job

So maybe you don't think on the job training counts? Maybe that without training teachers will just be the blind, leading the blind? Well, there is a lot of evidence out there that points out that training may even hinder teacher development! Yes, it is true. For me, in English Language Teaching, (and for the most part,… Continue

The "migrant" English language teacher

HomelessStreet04 I'm feeling in a very "sanguine" mood - must be the sweltering heat and humidity! I go from sweating profusely to cold chills when I turn on the AC (and suffer too the guilt).

I wrote the poem below the other day - about my inner feelings and present "mind". I think it might speak to other teachers too. We travel so far from home and indeed make "many homes". So what is home?

Robert Frost wrote that home is, “the place where, when you have to go there, / They… Continue

Talk is Cheap

Conferences, learning networks, professional development sessions, edchats, etc... give us something to think about, but I learn better by getting practical.


1. Put your money where your mouth is. Don't just talk about online education. There are heaps of free, easy to-use, software out there. Make a tech-lesson, test it,… Continue

Making Picture / Story Books

Writing storybooks or making picture books is a great way to reinforce grammar and vocabulary. It also gives students confidence and pride in “producing” something visible and tangible to measure their English language learning experience.

There are several steps to making a storybook and I’ll use my own Mr. X’s incredible Day/Yesterday as an example. Get the ppt/video here for use…

The #1 ..... (icebreaker for language classes)

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

2 Truths and 1 Lie.

I thought long and hard about this one and despite some other candidates, this activity due to its simplicity, personalization and structured language use - gets the vote. Plus, I've heard more good reports about this game than any other. It also has many variations.

Truths and a Lie - Each…

Another Karaoke Option - Cantanding

Cantanding is a new online karaoke site. Traditional karaoke that uses youtube videos to stream / show karaoke songs.

It has a very easy to use search option, just plug in the song and you should get it. It is much like the traditional karaoke in our A/V player. Same midi background music. Unfortunately, there is no contextualizing of the song with background/photos/pictures. However, it could come in handy for… Continue

Technology the RIGHT way

Around the education/technology twitterverse, there has been a lot of hand-wringing and "I told you so s" about THIS blog post on TES, "Byte the Dust". Basically, it outlines how tens of millions of dollars/pounds of educational technology are laying around gathering dust.

This follows another study which reported that…

Flixtime - make video presentations of photos

Flixtime looks like an interesting way to present some photos or better yet - introduce yourself as a teacher. It is similar to Animoto.

Basically, you upload photos and music and it will "blend" them and make a video for you. In the free version, you are allowed to post 15 photos. (I wouldn't bother paying - not until they get out of Beta and are a little more stable).

It does a nice job and you… Continue
