    1. 1. Is technology the answer to our homework woes? <br />shaunwilden@gmail.com<br />
    2. 2. Why do you set homework?<br />Do you like marking homework? <br />What kind of homework do you set? <br />How important is homework? For you? For your students?<br />
    3. 3. http://teacher2.smithtown.k12.ny.us/jbenotti/homework_cartoons.htm<br />

    5. 5. “The number one problem with homework is that they just don’t do it”<br />Prodromou and Clandfield – Dealing with difficulties <br />
    6. 6. Why do you set homework?<br />Do you like marking homework? <br />What kind of homework do you set? <br />How important is homework? For you? For your students?<br />
    7. 7. http://www.wallwisher.com/wall/homeworkthoughts<br />
    8. 8. http://eltchat.com/ #eltchat<br />Students would rather get told off or copy <br />Homework is seen as a punishment or irrelevant <br />Homework is too mechanical making it easy to copy<br />Homework is seen as boring / difficult / too easy<br />Leftovers = undesirable bits and pieces not finished in class<br />Students see English as ‘work’ and don’t want it encroaching on their free time! <br />Many times homework assesses nothing but organizational behavior.<br />
    9. 9. Students should see the usefulness of homework. <br />Tasks should be relevant, interesting and varied. <br />Different tasks may be assigned to different ability/learning style groups. <br />Homework should be manageable in terms of time<br />Homework doesn’t need to focus on a written product.<br />Increase learner involvement and motivation by encouraging students to contribute ideas and design their own tasks.<br />
    10. 10. 7. Tasks should be challenging but achievable.<br />Find out how much time, what facilities they have, and what their preferences are. <br />Homework should consolidate classwork, it should not replicate it. <br />Home is the outside world and tasks which are nearer to real life use of language are appropriate. <br />
    11. 11. I want homework -- or work done beyond the limited time that I've got 'em in my classroom -- to come with a sense of thrill. I want it to accompany a sense that it's really helping one get in the right frame of mind to engage with what we're talking about in class.<br />http://teachpaperless.blogspot.com/2010/09/homework-from-chills-to-thrills.html<br />
