Hello people !!

A big virtual hello to all you Didactique-bloggers,

I strongly believe that the world's growing more and more virtual with each passing day. As future teachers, you will be expected to be at ease using a few tools on the Internet, you will be expected to help your students know, understand and if possible, appreciate these tools .....

Let's hope that the practical approach we will be adopting this semester will allow you to master just a few basic things ...

Happy blogging and happy podcasting ... :-)

Let the fireworks begin !!!!!

Food for thought

Do you think it is possible to incorporate a social networking website like Facebook for teaching English as a foreign language? Why or why not?
How would you do so as a primary/ middle/ high school teacher? 
Any concrete ideas on how you would use a particular element from Facebook?

I have confirmed with the teacher concerned. We can use LAB 112 (MLC) for our class on the 20th of February. Please inform as many people of our class as you can. Though as I warned you before, you had better be looking at my blog regularly ...
So, you don't need to carry your laptops on that day. We will be in the same multimedia laboratory we were at for our first class.

Blogging to learn

We worked on an extract of this in class. Here's the link to the complete article:
"Blogging to learn" by Anne Bartlett-Bragg
Its opens into a .pdf file so you may save it for future use.

An interesting talk I found

You could watch it by clicking on the link "How to learn? From mistakes"

You will find an interactive transcript and information about the talk and the speaker on the right of the page.
The talk lasts about 10 minutes, so its certainly not very long.
Do watch it when you have a spare moment and reflect on her speech. What kind of teaching is this teacher providing? How does she teach? Would you, as a student, like to learn in the way she teaches? Why or why not?
You could reply to these questions by commenting on my blog itself .... :-)
