  • 3. COMMON EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK AND THE CURRICULUM DESIGN OF B.A. C.E.FRAMEWOK SIMILARITIES: **It C.D. of B.A. (Ley 13.688/ Res 3655/07) aims to mutual understanding and respect for diversity of cultures among citizens in Europe **Beliefs in the development of plurilingualism as a life-long process.  It aims to foster dialogue, as the DIFFERENCES:  In the C.D.B.A. there is no **Under the C.E.F. learner´s proficiency is assessed in L.2 languages , in terms of the six levels (A1-C2) and five skills (listening, reading, spoken interaction, spoken production, writing). **Highly Values learner´s autonomy and its own responsibility (“ownership”). most democratic and cooperative way of discourse. (anexo 2)  Applies “PLURILINGUISMO” as a holistic development of the subject. classification of learners or levels. It does not analyze “skills” in particular.  It does not highlight “learners´s autonomy”, but school curriculum, diagnosis of situations, institutional or in-class situations.
  • 4. SIR KEN ROBINSON: CHANGING EDUCATIONAL PARADIGMS. Main Ideas of his Presentation: CURRENT EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM: **It is a standardized system, originated in a different age. **It comes from the Iluminism and the Industrial Revolution era. ** It presents boring contents and methods to students. **A school resembles a factory: bell rings, numbers, time-tables, absence/present remarks, graduation, series numbers (age of the students)  Need to change the      educational paradigm: To abandon the idea of dividing people bet. Academic/ non educated population. To avoid standardization at school To foster divergent, lateral thinking, and creativity. Great learning comes from group-working. Need to work cooperatively.
  • 5. ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES of the USE OF TECHNOLOGY in the TEACHING PROCESS  ADVANTAGES     More active learning Diversified teaching methods Better student attention Less time and energy for professors  Visual stimulation  It motivates to use English in the daily life  Provides functional communicative experiences  DISADVANTAGES  Equipment failures  Need for back-up plans  Anxiety for professors  Time spent learning new technologies all the time.  Resources are not always available.  Constant Obsolescence of devices.
  • 6. ANALISIS DE UN VIDEO DE YOU TUBE: “PAY ATTENTION”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEFKfXiCbLw  The video highlights what our     students really learn: they are digital learners. We should take into account : if they are logical, spacial, kinisthetic, musical learners. Today an average college graduate has spent 10.000 hours playing video games, 10.000 h. talking on cell phones, 20.000 watching T.V. Kids of two, on average, use some screen media for about 2 hours per day. The video makes a joke by comparing “Richness” with the ability to reach students. (Reachness) Do our students “understand, analyze, evaluate, create” through what we teach them? Do we reach them in their own language ? Our children use: cell phones, screens, emails, internet, phones, text messages,. We should apply the www: whenever, whatever, wherever. We should use text messages to teach poetry, maths, geography, etc. We should use computers to work on pop quizes, book reports, literature, peer tutoring, storytelling, writing. Lets make schoolwork engaging and meaninful for the students, through the use of technology.
  • 7. Describe a situation which has some resemblance with the situation on the video:  Everyday we are involved in situations where the buzz of a cell-phone interrupts the presentation of the teacher. (that is the situation We´ve witnessed)  The video acknowledges the situation (talks about “evil” phones) and proposes: --As a way of “using the w.w.w. method”, we can use “text message” for: **Undergoing Student Polls. **Pop quizzes **Science experiments **Spelling Bees. **Math Experiments.
  • 8. SPANISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE. THE CELU EXAM.  CELU:Spanish Certificate: Language and Usage. It aims to respond to the need to certify knowledge of Spanish as a foreign language.  CELU evaluates oral and written linguistic competence of Spanish as a foreign language in daily, social, work related or academic situations irrespectively of the candidates’ mother tongue or the kind of language training that they have received. The CELU accounts for 3 levels of Spanish: basic, intermediate and advanced.  Basic : proficient ability to communicate in simple and predictable situations both daily and while traveling. / Intermediate: the speaker can deal naturally with family situations and a variety of social interactions/Advanced: ability to interact confidently and spontaneously in a wider range of family, social, work related and academic contexts.  It would be compared with the exams: KET/ PET/ FIRST CERTIFICATE/ ADVANCED/ PROFICIENCY in English, held by Cambridge University.
  • 9. E.L.T. AND CULTURE: JAY WALKER´S WORDS AND OUR OPINION.  In this TED video, Jay Walker states that the world is “going English crazy”, and that other countries are obssessed with teaching their children english beginning at an early age. He insists in asserting that it does not mean washing away other languages, but being a member of the globalized world. He says: “English represents HOPE for a better future, where the world has a common language to solve common problems.”  OUR OPINION:  On one hand, this assertion is true, because we need English as a lingua franca, to be part of “the world”.  But, on the other hand, Governments and People should give more attention to the need to preserve our own culture, language modalities, idioms and national values.
  • 10. PROFESSIONAL ETHICS.  ETHICS: A) The moral principles governing or influencing conduct.  B) [usu. treated as sing.] the branch of knowledge concerned with moral principles.  CAN PROFESSIONAL ETHICS BE TAUGHT?  **It is possible to train teachers in relation to Codes of Conduct.  **But some authors think that training individuals to adhere to particular ethical principles when making decisions may not be possible.  Some “Codes of Conduct” have been passed, as can be seen in the “CODE OF ETHICS FOR EDUCATORS” in: http://aaeteachers.org/index.php/about-us/aae-code-of-ethics.  But Codes of Conduct mandate specific behaviours in certain situations, but they do not promote individual submission to ethical principles.  There are many daily “grey areas” where teachers have to decide, facing different interests and values at stake. Codes of Conduct do not give a clear solution in those cases. It depends on the teacher´s personal values.
  • 11. ELT & VALUES: “The value of commitment” (Claudia Ferradas)  “The Value of Commitment” is a handbook written by CLAUDIA FERRADAS, to foster Reflection on Values as part of English language eaching.  The activities explore the following content areas: working with children (6 to 8 and 9 to 11), and working with teens (aged 12 to 14 and 15 to 18).  This handbook celebrates Argentina´s 200th birthday by focusing in the future: What sort of country do we want to build?, What do we want to change? What contribution can we make? How can we commit ourselves as agents of change?
  • 12. ELT & VALUES: “The value of commitment” (Claudia Ferradas) FROM THE HANDBOOK, WE CHOSE TO ANALIZE THE FIRST ACTIVITY: “THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS”. ASSIGNMENT: ANALYZE HOW THIS ACTIVITY INTEGRATES LANGUAGE TEACHING WITH VALUES TEACHING.
  • 13. ELT & VALUES: “The value of commitment” (Claudia Ferradas) The exercise integrates Languate Teaching with Values, by:  Exploring and expanding children´s vocabulary (L. Teaching): Because they need some new vocabulary to make a description (activity 1) and express personal feelings. (activity 2).  Revising structures such as “What colour…?” “How many? ” (Language teaching).  Value teaching: The activity makes children think critically on the immediate environment and their personal role in it.  It makes children compromise to making things better rather than just complaining abut others.
  • 14. ELT & VALUES: “The value of commitment” (Claudia Ferradas)  We think it is quite important to develop Values Lectures while teaching language.  It is because human beings are not “separate compartments”: We cannot teach something without referring to the values involved in the situation. Teachers of English are also Teachers, and therefore, responsible for what is taught in class and the way students grow as citizens, social members and human beings.
