  • Practical,
    Graded readers (NOT COURSE BOOKS).
    Contact me and send link to both sets of slides and the webquest
    Using my iPad so I can show working examples of books and apps
  • -Vague answers. iBook author - create your own
    -from glorified photocopy PDF to all singing, all dancing with interactive activities and audio
    (show example of Macmillan PDF)
    -Vary within publisher - if possible, get a sample (you can look at samples from BC at iTunes)
  • Discuss. How many read digital books at home or at school. How do you buy and read them? F/B
    website > genres> format> registered> paid >email (never actually read them) 1 year. 25th Aug 2014. Checked…not changed.
  • Most of us get hold of books *iBooks, *google play, kindle ebooks, *app store
    These * have more capabilities because of their format.
  • -Activities can work with paper books too but you have the device ready
    -Can also turn many of the activities into not digital ones
    -The idea of this session is…the device has the capability to do extra things which are simple and either cheap or free.
    -Can be done on BYOD. iPhones etc. (wifi, free apps or phone capability)
  • Cert ICT > Jerian. GE and First
    pron, intonation, register with writing
    I was AM and so little time… so he did warm up and writing via web quest. Flipped.
  • Senario to encourage interest. Three types of writing …newspaper report, letter (formal and informal). Mary Shelley’s life, Story of Frank, Frank on film. Areas all covered by the book but he hadn’t seen the book yet. Big class… different groups could cover different areas. Report back to blog. Or do this as long term project.
  • Example of the research he did at home as part of the webquest. All over the internet. Personalised to Bournemouth.
  • We’re going to listen to a part of a story Decide Now! which one. 99 cents.
  • Think of exercises you can do with this chunk of listening.
    Listening - quality voice actors. Resource in itself.
  • -Dragon Dictation Nuance. Free on itunes, google play
    -VR software. /f/ /p/ /th/
    -listen / read dialogue… dictate story. Ss Correct and return
    -Ss dictagloss
  • News Booth- Free How could you use this? Predict - motivate. Post = add the next part of the story - speak with this behind. News and interview people… who found body. Appeal for witness
  • Built-in exercises in BC books. KET, Preliminary, First But can do this with any collage of photos. ELTpics.

    settings - environment
  • Jerian did this a number of times. Self- corrected. Aware of his own mistakes. Then I listened and we did some extra work.
    -difficult to appraise own speaking. screenshot by me…
    -£1.99 sonic pics, Talking Pictures Google Play
    -Number of pictures (like my Peter Pan) tell stories. Presentations etc.
    -Tellagami animation talking over image
  • Part of web quest but can be at any stage. Set up like a cambridge first or Trinity reading into writing. Jerian emailed me (authentic email or attachment = DL skills). I returned with video feedback using MailVu
    FCE level - formal and higher register
  • Three copies of same image. Lower level. Like fake phone conversations.
    T do the screenshots and so leave students to focus on what characters thinking / saying
    (other ideas)… thinking Vs saying
  • Motivating, sounds, interactive, glossary.

    -checking understanding. Not heavy but just so that you get the story.
    -Autonomy - Ss more likely to read this casually than paper book.
  • Choose your own adventures. Marcos Benevides. 8 endings. Richmond Business English points re-try. embedded language
  • Delta Handbooks, The Round, OUP,
  • The Round, A Community of Readers Michael McCollister discussions about extensive reading
  • Lend Practical activities for e-book readers
