Sokan lista alapján járják az intézményeket, folyamatosan nyílt napokra látogatnak, tanító nénikkel egyeztetnek. Viszont érdemes odafigyelni a dátumokra, mert nem mindenhova áprilisban kell jelentkezni! Az AKG új általános iskolájába, amely 1-5 évfolyamokat indít, például január 15-e a határidő. Szóval, figyeljünk, le ne késsük! Nagy a túljelentkezés, szájhagyomány útján terjednek a kitűnő eredményeik, máshogy tanítanak, és máshogy tanul itt a gyerek.

Excellent Tools, Apps, and Tips to Create Educational Book Trailers November 12, 2014 There are several ways to use technology to engage students and enhance their literacy skills and one of them is through creating video book trailers.

A video book trailer is a concise review of a book created with the help of a variety of digital tools that include : images, text, clips, voiceovers, recordings, and music. Why include book trailers in your instruction? Creating book trailers is a comprehensive learning task in which students get to experiment with different literacies.Book trailers is a good way to get reluctant readers to readBook trailers are good for those readers who find it hard to visualize what they readBook trailers are a good alternative for the traditional book reportsTips on how to create Book Trailers Here are two sources I would recommend for learning about some important tips to keep in mind when working on book trailers:

Experimenting with English (Part 2) – Activities for learners to do outside the classroom [26 and counting!] In my blog post Experimenting with English: scaffolding learner autonomy, I discussed how I approached helping my learners to use English outside the classroom, drawing on learner autonomy theory and methodology (e.g. Benson, 2011; Oxford, 2003; Smith 2003). Central to that project, alongside the very important element of discussion, was a handout I created for my learners. Here is a screenshot of a sample page, taken from the listening section: Sample page from my Experimenting with English activities handout, listening section.

Associazione Il Nostro Pianeta Il Quadro Comune Europeo di Riferimento per le Lingue La classica tripartizione dei livelli di L2 (principiante/intermedio/avanzato) è stata sostituita da alcuni anni dai risultati di un immenso lavoro elaborato in seno al Consiglio d’Europa, il cosiddetto Quadro Comune Europeo di Riferimento per le Lingue (QCER), conosciuto anche come Framework. Il QCER ha suddiviso il percorso dell’apprendimento linguistico in sei livelli, descritti in modo rigoroso e oggettivo, tenendo conto delle quattro abilità (ascoltare, leggere, parlare, scrivere) e di molti altri parametri. Questi livelli misurano la competenza linguistica in senso ampio (non solo la padronanza della morfosintassi e del lessico) e sono validi in riferimento a qualunque lingua straniera.

Foreign Language Teaching Methods About the Site Foreign Language Teaching Methods focuses on 12 different aspects of language teaching, each taught by a different expert instructor. The site contains video footage from an actual methods course held at the University of Texas at Austin. This flexible resource is designed to be used by foreign language teachers as a component of a classroom methods course or as a stand-alone course for independent learners. “While I was taking this course, I was already changing what I was doing and I can already see the difference. ” - Verónica, beginning language teacher (Spanish) Anna Laghigna's Learning Diary Teaching English as a foreign language, I have used technology so far especially to improve speaking skills (pronunciation, fluency and oracy) through Digital Storytelling, Flipped Classroom or Webquests. Unfortunately, I have not been able to carry out any PBL in full so far, firstly because we have little technology at school; secondly because there are few teachers in my school who would be willing to consider a multidisciplinary approach; thirdly, because you will need a lot of permissions in Italian schools to do so, including the approval by your principal. So, let's hope for the future. If the main objectives of our learning stories should focus on the creation rather than the mere consumption of knowledge, the range of possible activities is huge: from videos, storyboards, comic strips, animations to presentations, e-books, timelines, infographics, blogs, wikis, etc. For example, they created imaginary interviews with their favourite celebrities.
