ESP for Busy College Students: Is the Blend of In-Class, Online & Mobile Learning the A... - 4 views

  • Neumeier (2005) more broadly defines a hybrid learning environment as “a combination of face-to-face (FtF) and computer assisted learning” used in a single course delivery context (p. 164).
  • hybrid language learning courses are “only going to foster successful language learning if they are carefully designed on the basis of an analysis of the participants’ needs and abilities” (p. 176).
  • Learning English for Special Purposes requires a high degree of interaction with peers, teachers, and content. Effective interaction with content was built into the instructional design, however increased levels of communication with peers and teachers are essential and these can be achieved only through the Internet.

  • writing practice and communication were conducted mainly through the computer not the mobile devices
  • students were in agreement that the blend of in-class, online and mobile delivery was an optimal solution for internationally trained immigrants learning English in a post-secondary context. They found the combination of 1) speaking taught primarily face-to-face, 2) listening taught on the mobile devices and 3) writing taught mainly online to be an effective approach.
  • the in-class component seemed to maintain the integrity of the hybrid course overall as it fostered a sense of community amongst the learners. As noted by participants, it was the design of the materials and the way in which they were presented, not the technology used, that impacted the effectiveness of the course the most.
  • The traditional classroom meetings though, were found most beneficial in promoting face-to-face interaction, ad-hoc speaking, pronunciation practice and the development of other communication competencies supported by visual cues.
  • the findings indicate that students’ progress was enabled by effective instructional design integrating goals and content relevant to the specific group of learners, together with the appropriate methods and media which enabled and enhanced interaction within the content.

7 Online Magazines for Kids That Are Worth a Read - 0 views

  •  
    Children's magazines like their adult counterparts also have accompanying websites. A visitor who drops by won't be able to distinguish between an online magazine and a website (or blog). Most of the online versions of the children's magazines also publish the same content; partly if not all. Here are some that are worth a look and a read.

    To create a time line
  •  
    I've found this tool to create timelines. I haven't give it a try yet but I think it can be promising, especially when learning tenses. Or maybe, at the beginning of the year, make students do a timeline with the objectives they would like to reach until the end of the year. Just ideas. Hope you find it useful,
