By now you have seen all the main possibilities for using the tool. During this week, have you come up with any other creative ideas that the tool could be used for. Could you integrate other tools, software with mybrainshark to optimise learning opportunities?
What is the ‘flipped classroom’ and what is the relevance to ELT?What are the advantages of ‘flipping’?What are the disadvantages?What does the ‘connected classroom’ mean?What is the relevance to ELT? To the IFC at CAFA?
My idea not common language. We can get students to do much more interesting things in language outside of the class. We can use tools like myBrainShark, Eyejot, Audioboo, MailVu to record themselves speaking outside of the class. Russell Stannard, University of Warwick, 2012
What we do in class and what we do outside of the class ( connect them) For example set up and practice a speaking activity in the lesson but do speaking on own at home and then send it to the student. It is the CONNECTION that is key. The more preparation work you do, the better the students will do the activity. Russell Stannard, University of Warwick, 2012
Using the tool for: Uploading and narrating: Documents, photos, videos. Sharing, embedding. and tracking. How to deal with problems / constraints. Pedagogy of e-learning.
Final question: What is going to work on the IFC at CAFA? Don’t feel limited to just using myBrainshark, although this is the tool proposed to be used for practising speaking and presentation skills. Other skills – Reading, Writing, Listening?
