ELT Planning | TEFL tips and ideas from a developing teacher The Triptico Blog – Page 2 – The Triptico Academy As this is the first blog post of 2016: Happy New Year – and thank you for visiting the Triptico blog. There will be many changes to the Triptico website over the next few weeks – including the addition of two brand new resources – but today I want to tell you about an exciting new feature. One of the more common questions that teachers ask is: ‘Is it possible to share a Triptico activity that I have created with my students?’ Well, the answer is now: ‘Yes!’ A new ‘share’ option has been added which allows you to publish an activity (for anybody at all to view) for 24 hours. This means that, if you have a class that you would like to share an activity with, you can publish the activity and provide the class with a link to it. So, how do you use this new feature? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. There it is – yet another easy way to share the Triptico activities that you have created! You can use this feature to share activities with your students – but you can also use it to introduce Triptico to others.

TESOL TOOLBOX | Tools & Techniques for Resourceful Teachers #ClasseTICE Ozge Karaoglu's Blog - About apps and web tools, and being a teacher … Writing to learn | close up This post was inspired by Dave Dodgson in Ankara, Turkey, and his account of using dictogloss with young learners. I’m a big fan of dictogloss* (or dictocomp as Marisa Constantides calls it in a comment on the same blog post) and this is one of my favourite dictogloss activities. *For a definition of dictogloss please scroll down to the bottom of the post) [Writer's block - image by flickrFelix - a creative commons image] I first used this activity with a group of Spanish students in Madrid. We had dipped into Clockwise Advanced for a quick gist listening. I had held back on the last story in the set. [by lynnmwillis on flickr - creative commons image] We brainstormed possible angles – one of which was, of course, the health angle – and they listened to the text to see which of their predictions (if any) was correct. This is the tapescript: New research suggests that drinking coffee may increase the risk of heart disease and strokes. (Clockwise Advanced Student’s Book , OUP 2000) Like this:
