Enhancing group work with ict

  1. 1. Welcome to technoLanguages LIVE!
  2. 2. Group Work and ICT in the Languages Classroom http://flavors.me/jessmcculloch
  3. 3. What I did What worked and what could have been better What I’d try next
  4. 4. Dividing Students Into Groups 1 person you always work with 1 person you have never (or very rarely) worked with At least 1 girl At least 1 boy Someone who has learnt Chinese since Prep
  5. 5. IWB Flip Cameras Desktops iPods Flashcard Games/craft activity/mobil e phones 4-5 Students per group
  6. 6. Web Tour Time! Group Work page on the technoLanguages Wiki – http://technolanguages.wikispaces.com/Group+Work
  7. 7. This type of group work was good for access to technology worked well on a rotational basis but was more about students each doing the same thing rather than working together. did not take into account the social context the students were working in didn’t plan for interactions between students
  8. 8. How I’d do it now…
  9. 9. 1 Netbook 1 iPad 1 iPod Touch 1 Video/Still Camera 1 Microphone 5 students per group 1 Netbook 1 iPad 1 iPod Touch 1 Video/Still Camera 1 Microphone 1 Netbook 1 iPad 1 iPod Touch 1 Video/Still Camera 1 Microphone 1 Netbook 1 iPad 1 iPod Touch 1 Video/Still Camera 1 Microphone 1 Netbook 1 iPad 1 iPod Touch 1 Video/Still Camera 1 Microphone
  10. 10. This type of group work is also good for access to technology could be more geared to students working together to produce a team result/product etc would require that interactions between students are planned for could encourage more self-teaching (watch Sugata Mitra’s TED video)
  11. 11. How do we plan for interactions between students? •What might they say to each other? •What roles does each student have within the group? •How will they need to help each other? •What language items should they be encouraged to use when communicating with each other?
