GAMES ACTIVITIES FOR ESL Collected by Shaney Crawford, Former Participant of the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme (Fukushima) These games and activities have been collected from various sources: past issues of the Fukushima JET newsletter, games books, various CLAIR and AJET teaching resource guides, and stuff left over from my predecessor. I apologize for not quoting sources, but I collected them in such a hurry when I first got here that I can’t find the original sources in most cases. It is safe to assume that I did not come up with all of these games, so please do not give me credit for doing so. You can, however, assume that all mistakes are mine. 1.

The Ten Commandments of Play-Based Learning My day-to-day work with young children paired with the here-and-there trainings and consultations I do with other early childhood professionals continue to teach me this: one of the most difficult lines to toe in the complex world of play-based learning is the one that separates “too involved” from “disengaged”. Scores of us champion the young child’s right to play, but the intricacies of such work are more difficult to articulate. In an effort to articulate how I discern the line, I have created a Ten Commandments-esque list, having just listened to one of my all time favorite episodes of This American Life. This list captures my guiding principles when it comes to accompanying children through play-based learning. Despite appearances to the contrary, I do not view this list as exhaustive, and if you have your own to add, I’d love to hear them in the comments below.

TOTAL PHOTOSHOP (tut. video immagine ecc.) Up&Up è il nuovo, spettacolare, video dei Coldplay Il gruppo britannico ha pubblicato sui propri canali ufficiali il video del nuovo singolo Up&Up ottenendo, subito, moltissime visualizzazioni. Posto che i Coldplay possono piacere o non piacere, siamo qui per suggerirvi di dare un’occhiata (ed anche più di una) alla clip. Si tratta infatti di un video ricco di effetti speciali, una delle nostre grandi passioni, e di contenuti e rimandi all’attualità davvero sconvolgenti. Council for Learning Outside the Classroom Much has been learned in recent years about the different ways in which we prefer to learn, and teachers routinely explore ‘learning how to learn’ in order to raise achievement. What we see, hear, taste, touch, smell and do gives us a selection of ‘pathways to learning’. At its simplest, this means three ways to learn: by listening, by seeing and from experience, known as auditory, sensory and kinaesthetic learning. There is an assumption that much traditional teaching has undervalued the power of sensory and kinaesthetic learning, an imbalance which learning outside the classroom can effectively address. Young people are intensely curious and will always take the opportunity to explore the world around them More intricate is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which defines personal styles and describes learning styles by contrasting a range of attitudes: extroversion v. introversion, sensing v. intuition, thinking v. feeling, judging v. perceiving.
