Lesson Jamming - A Model for Planning Lessons in Groups

Lesson Jamming - A Model for Planning Lessons in Groups

Tom Heaven
Sample for Guests



Lesson planning is just one part of the job that many teachers do alone. Jamming is what musicians do when they play as a group in an improvised manner. Lesson jamming combines these two, with the purpose of bringing teachers together to create lesson plans in groups.

Two central beliefs mean that firstly, there is a lot to learn from (and teach) our fellow teachers, and second, the sparks of creativity can be found in groups, given the right conditions. Tom will discuss what a lesson jam is and how to run a session. He will then explore past experiences and plans for future sessions that you can get involved in.

Tom has been living in Berlin and working as an English teacher for four years. He is a member of the Berlin Language Workers’ Grassroots Association, with which he ran the first lesson jams sessions.

Join this webinar to learn how you can join a group with other teachers to let the creativity flow.

Tomorrow!

ELT workshop: Playing English, by Sylvie Dolakova

INVITATION
 Data Status d.o.o. invites you to an ELT workshop: Playing English, by Sylvie Dolakova

Date: Sunday, June 7th 2015

Time: 9.30 – 13.30

Address: CROWNE PLAZA HOTEL, Vladimira Popovića 10, 11070 Beograd, Serbia

Event Room: Baltic

Workshop 1:

Title: English from the first word


Description: Teachers often look for the answer to the question “How do I start teaching very young children?” Our workshop gives an answer to that question. It offers ways of teaching foreign language naturally in a mother tongue environment, of making do without translating all the words, while making sure the children understand as much as possible – in short a guideline for teaching from the very first word, first phrase, first sentence, first lesson, first week to the first months of English in the lives of very young beginners.

Workshop 2:

Title: Communication games


Description: Some small communication games enable kids to use communicative structures in a natural, lively context. Children solve various tasks in various situations that provoke a certain kind of oral involvement from them. The sub-consciousness of this procedure is very beneficial in the learning environment as the children do not need to think about the language much.

Bio:

Sylvie Dolakova is a teacher trainer focusing on teaching English to children aged 4-15. Her workshops are popular for creativity, high applicability and usability in classrooms. She specialises in teaching English through art and stories, publishes language game books and CDs for children.

Ms. Dolakova has presented at conferences in Greece, Spain, Turkey, Cyprus, France, Germany, Norway, Lithuania, to name just a few.

How to attend:

Advance registration is required. To register, please send an email with your name, telephone number and affiliation to romina.halilovic@datastatus.rs or call the number 064/610-97-40

Successful applicants for these workshops will be notified by June 3rd, 2015.

All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

Programme:

Registration: 9.30 – 10.00

Workshop 1: 10.00 – 11.30

Coffee break: 11.30 – 12.00



Workshop 2: 12.00 – 13.30

“Tech Tools for Busy Teachers" and "Authentic Assessment" - Workshops

Dear colleagues,

If you are going to ELTA Conference this May, you have probably already seen the programme and chosen the talks you are going to see.

If you are not going to the conference, I’m sure it is not because of the lack of will, it has probably something to do with the lack of means. I guess I don’t need to remind you of that L

What I wanted to say is that you still have a chance to hear some of the speakers J

American Corner in Kragujevac announces two workshops next week.

Branka Deckovic - workhop "Authentic Assessment", May 11th (Monday), beginning at 6pm.


Deborah Healey, one of the plenary speakers at ELTA Conference - workshop “Tech Tools for Busy Teachers", May 13th (Wednesday), beginning at 6pm.


If you wish to attend these workshops, you can reserve your spot, just confirm your presence at one of these two emails branka.decka@gmail.com, kragujevac@americancorners.rs, or this mobile 060 70 70 886.

See you there!

“Authentic Assessment”

Authentic assessments are on-going assessments, reviews and observations. Teachers use authentic assessments to improve instructional methods, to see how effective our teaching is and what change we need to make. The students, on the other hand, are involved in evaluation process, they become active learners, they are motivated and encouraged to develop their approaches to learning.

Branka Dečković has been teaching English for 11 years. She works in medical school in Kragujevac. She likes using authentic materials in the classroom, and she is interested in assessment.


“Tech Tools for Busy Teachers"

This session will demonstrate useful websites that can help teachers to plan, organize, and create material for their classes, plus group project sites. The emphasis is on free resources that are easy to use and that will let teachers improve what they do without spending a lot of time.


Dr. Deborah Healey has taught English and trained teachers for over 35 years. She currently offers online courses for teachers internationally through the University of Oregon’s American English Institute and teaches in the Master’s program in Linguistics. She has presented extensively internationally on technology in education. She is a co-author of TESOL Technology Standards: Description, Implementation, Integration, lead scriptwriter for the ELT game, Trace Effects, and a member of TESOL International Association Board of Directors.

Вебциклопедија 2: Изокренута учионица и веб-алати за њену примену


Друга онлајн школа Вебициклопедија посвећена је актуелном концепту изокренуте учионице и веб-алатима који технолошки подржавају њену примену. Реч о савременом концепту Flipped Classroom - једне врсте проактивне наставе по којој ученици наставне садржаје проучавају код куће како би на час дошли спремни за дубље проучавање теме, примену, проблеме, расправу, оглед... у зависности од наставног садржаја који је проучаван и од задатака које наставник осмисли. Од тога како ће наставник припремити материјале које ученици самостално проучавају код куће увелико зависи да ли ће се ученици приволети оваквом методу рада. На пролећној школи (по Правилнику нема пролећних школа па смо је везали за зиму - зимска школа) упознаћемо се технолошком подршком овом концепту, односно веб-алатима путем којих наставници могу да припреме занимљиве лекције за проучавање код куће.


Предавачи и модератори

Предавачи и модератори скупа, чланови Заједнице, својевремено су међу првима у Србији (2012. године) завршили обуку о изокренуто учионици: Катарина Алексић, Славица Јурић и Марија Јовић. Стручни скуп биће прилика да се размене знање, али и прилика да се размене искуства са онима који примењују овај метод који и јесте и није нов.
Начин рада
Главна платформа на којој ће се летња школа одвијати јесте Едмодо - српски поддомен, који је идеалан за изокренуту учионицу, па ће већ сам концепт стручног скупа бити пример организовања изокренуте учионице. Пријављенима чије школе немају налог на Едмодо-заједници Србије, биће благовремено отворени налози за школе. У случају да не могу или не смеју да отварају школски налог, биће придружени посебно оформљеној групи.
Детаљни садраји и методологија по којој ће се рад одвијати налази се агенди коју можете да преузмете.
Број полазника је ограничен на 100.
Услови и пријављивање
Цена школе је 1.800 динара, а 1.400 за чланове ЗУС-а који су платили чланарину за 2015. годину.
Стручни скуп је намењен напредним корисницима ИКТ.
Пријављивање траје до 13. априла 2015. године попуњавањем електронског обрасца на страницама нашег сестринског сајта Вебциклопедија.
Даље инструкције о уплати и упису на Едмодо очекујте путем имејла.

Skype - Transform literacy and learning in your classroom

Beginning on February 16th 2015, Skype in the Classroom is launching “Skype Celebrates Literacy”. This six week program will feature guest speakers from the publishing industry, lessons and resources to support and inspire literacy learning in classrooms around the world.

Literacy remains a high priority on the global education agenda and a core subject for classrooms everywhere. Lessons that involve reading, writing, speaking and listening – from poetry jams and reading aloud to author visits – have always been popular amongst teachers using Skype in the Classroom.

In 2014, you and your students travelled millions of virtual miles taking part in lessons around the world via Skype. Whether you collaborated with another classroom, played Mystery Skype, invited a guest speaker in for a Q&A, or went on a virtual field trip, chances are these experiences engaged your students’ literacy skills, perhaps without them even realizing it!

Here's how you can get involved:

1) Invite a guest speaker: authors, illustrators and storytellers will be available to join your classrooms via Skype. To make it easy to find and schedule a speaker to inspire your students, we’ve created a way to quickly schedule these calls. These conversations can be scheduled via Skype in the Classroom beginning February 9th.

2) Participate in World Read Aloud Day events: schedule a call on World Read Aloud Day or World Book Day (both the week of 2nd March) to celebrate the art of reading and writing. There will be a wide range of partner-provided content, tools, and resources to help with traditional reading and writing, including digital literacy and internet safety content too.

3) Literacy projects: we will have some very exciting literacy-related partner organizations including School in the Cloud, Microsoft, Safer Internet Day/ChildNet, and some very special guest speakers through those partnerships all coming soon.

4) Create your own Skype lesson: get creative and post your own literacy lesson for other classrooms to get involved in. Let us know about it @SkypeClassroom and we can promote it for you.


Using an online Reading Level site, Mike Soskil, a teacher at Wallenpaupack South Elementary School in Pennsylvania discovered that “Our 4th grade students, who have been using a curriculum of Skype experiences and blogging as part of their Social Studies curriculum this year, increased their writing scores on average by half a grade level from October to December. The students using this curriculum are either in special education or low achieving.”

With a stronger focus on learning experiences that directly support literacy we hope to help teachers everywhere create even greater impact through the use of free accessible technology like Skype.

We hope to see you and your students join in all of the new literacy lessons. If you are new to Skype in the Classroom, we invite you to hop on a tour hosted by our Skype Guides, teachers just like you who are excited to show you the innovative and educational adventures that await your students. Don’t forget to help inspire others with your experience via our Stories Page, Facebook and Twitter.

We look forward to a fantastic celebration of literacy.
Your friends at Skype in the Classroom

Radionica za nastavnike engleskog jezika, JEANNE PERRET

Poštovani,

imamo zadovoljstvo da Vas u saradnji sa Macmillan Education London pozovemo na radionicu za nastavnike engleskog jezika koju će održati Jeanne Perrett .

The Three Ps:
Puppets, Plays and Paying attention.

How can we encourage our young learners to focus? Some children have natural concentration skills; others need help and encouragement to understand what they are learning. Using puppets and acting out simple plays in the classroom not only helps with their language skills, but with the very important life skill of paying attention.
In this session we will look at practical activities for the classroom.

Jeanne Perrett has over thirty years' experience in the language teaching sector and has significant experience in teaching children and training teachers. She is the author of a wide range of English language course-books for primary and pre-primary classes including Brilliant and Learning Stars.

Radionica će se održati u sledeća tri grada:

Novi Sad: 22. JANUAR, 18:30 - 20:00
TIMS fakultet za sport i turizam, Radnička 30a

Niš: 23. JANUAR, 18:30 - 20:00
Regionalni centar, Pariske komune bb

Beograd: 24. JANUAR, 11:00 - 12:30
British Council, Terazije 8/II
