Alright - ELT training RAP with subtitles then ...

Just because so many of you asked me for the words of the ELT Training Rap I wrote, I made a version for you with subtitles.

Now you can rap it to or with your colleagues :-). Have fun!

ELT Rap - Lesson framework

Here goes the lesson plan I had promised in my previous post. I taught my first lesson with one of my YL groups (age about 8-9) at the beginning of September based on this and after 50 mins we also did the recording, which you can have a look at here, in their class blog.

This is a post I owe to a lot of teachers who keep writing me to post the videoed workshop I did as part of the OUP teacher training course at the end of August.

I must admit that I had a lot of fun planning and doing this workshop and it seems that this enthusiasm was catching, and I was glad to see it happenning :-)

So that is why, my dear reader, my blog disappeared for five days. But we are back.

And here's the infamous screencast, this is how I did it. (It's in Hungarian)

Sugata Mitra's new experiments in self-teaching

Even if you have seen Sugata Mitra's previous presentations on his 'Hole-in-the-wall' experiments, this one is definitely worth revisiting as it offers some his new findings as well based on research he has done all over the world, and more recently in Newcastle.

This talk is a must watch for all those who dare make decisions about education systems. The whole thing is about the future generation. Right? So we should care about it. Well, I'll let you watch, enjoy and allow your imagination go further.

At the end ask yourself: "What if...?"
