15 no-prep games with just little scraps of paper One of the most flexible and useful resources in the classroom are bits of scrap paper. One thing that has really developed in my teaching over the years is my ability to react flexibly to things that happen in class, such as students knowing more or less about the language point than I expected, having wrong information about the class, students arriving late, or energy levels not being what I expected. One vital part of developing that ability to respond rather than just stick to the lesson plan has been to find and develop games that can be can be added to almost any class as and when needed. Most of these games use things that are already in the classroom or at least the school, such as the students’ fingers and textbooks- perfect for improvising and for the minimal resource situations I have often taught in. Games where you tell them exactly what to write 1. Give out two pieces of paper per student and ask them to write the two categories you will be looking at on them, e.g. 2. 3.

Preschool Learning Games For Kids Preschool Games Preschool Games Preschool Songs & Videos Young kids love learning with preschool games in a fun online academic setting. Learning games for kids make it easy for teachers to teach preschoolers as they prepare their preschool lessons. 33 Digital Tools for Advancing Formative Assessment in the Classroom I came across a great blog post the other day – Formative Assessments Are Easier Than You Think – that told the firsthand account of a teacher, Steven Anderson, who implemented formative assessment in his classroom. He used a sticky-note version of an exit ticket to elicit evidence of student learning and in his words, “what a difference that made.” Formative assessment is ‘easier than you think’ and with all the digital tools and apps now available for mobile devices it’s even easier. We’ve shared some digital tools before and with the five tools that Steven shared combined with our earlier suggestions there are now 33 digital tools that we’ve uncovered that are free or inexpensive and help teachers implement formative assessment in their classrooms. Here they are: A few of Steven’s discoveries: Lino – A virtual corkboard of sticky-notes so students can provide questions or comments on their learning. Poll Everywhere – Teachers can create a feedback poll or ask questions. Pick Me!

La Photographie comme langage Depuis 1968, date de la publication du premier dossier, Photolangage est devenu un mot tellement courant du vocabulaire des formateurs, qu'il a pris un sens générique. Destiné à l'origine à des publics adolescents, pour qui la prise de parole n'est pas nécessairement chose aisée, Photolangage a vite montré quelles ressources il recelait aussi pour les publics d'adultes. De là son succès en France, notamment dans les actions de formation continue ; succès qui s'est particulièrement accru quand la Loi de 1971 a étendu l'Education Permanente à l'ensemble des populations de salariés. Photolangage fait maintenant partie de dispositifs éducatifs qui n'intéressent pas seulement la vie associative, mais encore les milieux professionnels des entreprises ou des administrations. Il s'agit donc d'une démarche qui a fait l'objet de nombreuses utilisations dans des conditions très différentes et dans des cultures très diversifiées. C'est donc à tous ces collègues ou confrères que s'adresse ce site.

What Is Your Learning Style? What Is Your Learning Style? This quiz asks 24 questions and will take less than five minutes to complete. Try not to think too hard -- just go with your first thought when describing your daily activities and interests. By the end, you may have some new insights into your learning preferences. Editor's Note (2013): There is no scientific evidence, as of yet, that shows that people have specific, fixed learning styles or discrete intelligences, nor that students benefit when teachers target instruction to a specific learning style or intelligence.
