Learning in motion: EASY stop-motion animation with Google Slides

And with that, they've been able to gather their ideas and turn them into static, two-dimensional images. To put those images in motion ... well, that's been trickier over time. Technology made that possible with the creation of animation software. (Although who never tried making flip-book animation in the corner of their notebooks while bored in class???) Animation software can be expensive and tricky to learn. Here's the great thing ... You don't need animation software today. You just need a free digital tool that everyone has access to. Google Slides. With a few steps and some creativity, Google Slides can become a powerful animation tool that most students -- little to big -- can wield.

PBL on HUMAN RIGHTS Students’ final works!

I’m very proud of my students when watching and listening to them presenting their Prezis and Emazes I realize how much they have improved in these 4 (or 2 in the case of 3M) years together. It’s amazing the quality of some of their works that show a great deal of creativity and that was exactly what I aimed at. In spite of all their complaining, attempts to postpone the deadline and their handing in at the latest minute Every work should contain: Here’s the ASSESSMENT RUBRIC and the two Padlets that contain all their works.

Introduction There is no blogpost of mine which does not mention Working Memory (WM) at some point.

Eight important facts about Working Memory and their implications for foreign language teaching and learning

Why? Because effective language processing and learning largely depends on how well Working Memory performs. In fact, apart from automatic processes – which bypass WM’s attentional control – all conscious processing of information (visual, auditory, etc.) occurring in the human brain is performed by WM. Six ‘useless’ things foreign language teachers do. Recasts Recasts are the most frequent form of feedback that teachers give students in the course of oral interactions.

Six ‘useless’ things foreign language teachers do

They consists of utterances by the teacher that repeat the student’s erroneous utterance but ‘fix’ the mistake(s) without changing the meaning in any way. Example: Student: hier j’ai allé au cinéma Teacher: je suis allé au cinéma Recasts, according to research (e.g. As several studies have clearly shown, recasts do not really ‘work’ as they are not noticed most of the time. The main reason why recasts do not work is that when the learners’ Working Memory is interrupted in the middle of speech production by the correction, it will not rehearse that correction for the time necessary to commit it to long-term memory -because it will be concentrating on resuming the interrupted conversation flow. In view of the little surrender value of recasts in terms of acquisition, interrupting the students to correct them whilst they are talking may do more harm than good.

More Practice on May / Might / Could / Must / Can't. Blended Learning Definition. The term blended learning is generally applied to the practice of using both online and in-person learning experiences when teaching students.

Blended Learning Definition

In a blended-learning course, for example, students might attend a class taught by a teacher in a traditional classroom setting, while also independently completing online components of the course outside of the classroom. In this case, in-class time may be either replaced or supplemented by online learning experiences, and students would learn about the same topics online as they do in class—i.e., the online and in-person learning experiences would parallel and complement one another.

Also called hybrid learning and mixed-mode learning, blended-learning experiences may vary widely in design and execution from school to school. A NEW LANGUAGE MEANS ANOTHER VISION OF LIFE. Free Technology for Teachers. How Technology Should Have Already Changed Your Teaching.

How Technology Should Have Already Changed Your Teaching by Terry Heick Ed note: this post has been updated from a fall 2015 post A little bit of technology doesn’t change much. It can make things a little easier by automating them. It could make a lesson here or there gee-wiz flashy, or even engage hesitant students.

Are you tired of beginning each school year with the same ol’ “Elements of Plot” lesson? The initial vocabulary and concepts related to “Plot” can be kind of “dry” and “boring”, especially if you’re a student in grades 7th-10th!

You know what I’m talking about because we’ve all been there ;) I took some time (well, quite a bit of time!) Designing a new way to introduce the “elements of plot” to my ninth grade English students! Instead of using the original “Plot Mountain” (pictured below) – I decided to take my students on “Plot Roller Coaster Ride”! Typical Plot Mountain New Plot Roller Coaster Download FREE Plot Roller Coaster PDF Inspired by the graphic organizer shown above, I went on to create a PREZI presentation, student note-taking packet and two intertactive activities to use this year as I teach this standard (RL 7-10.3). As you can see, I’ve incorporated “Plot” Task cards into one of the activities in this bundle! Like this: Like Loading... ⋆ Teaching Material for English (ESL/EFL) Teachers in Sweden. MIK-rummet.
