Session Title: 







Designed by a seasoned team of  long standing EVO moderators and participants, ICT4ELT (Information and Communication Technology for English Language Teachers) is a session for teachers who want to explore how computers and computer technology could be useful in their teaching but do not know where to start.

If you want to liven up your classroom with technology, come and join us!



Target audience: 

EFL / ESL teachers and educators with little or no experience in teaching with computers and online web 2.0 tools. More experienced teachers and educators are welcome too as they can learn from the session's content and assigned tasks as well as from the participants' discussions. 



Session objectives: 

At the end of the 5 weeks, participants, collaboratively and hands on, will have...

  • used various synchronous and asynchronous Web tools for learning and teaching EFL/ESL, 
  • interacted through e-mail, text chat, voice chat, voice and video mail, and distribution lists, among others, 
  • created wikis, blogs, podcasts and interactive exercises related to their own contexts, 
  • reflected on ways of applying those tools to their teaching, either online or face-to-face.





Syllabus: The session syllabus includes the major focus for each week and at least one activity or task. 



Week 1: 


13-19 Jan. 2019

Getting to know each other and the cyber landscape

In this first week, participants will become familiar with the session wiki, introduce themselves and get to know each other using a Google Classroom. They will post some information about themselves and complete an ice breaking activity using the Google Classroom group. To collect more relevant data about participants, a Google form will be used. In addition to this hands-on approach, participants will also read texts that will help them become successful e-tutors and e-learners. There will be an online session in which moderators will showcase the potential of Google Classroom as a platform for teaching and learning. 



Week 2:


20-26 Jan. 2019

Communication tools and Mobile learning .

In the second week of the session participants will explore audio, video, and chat communication tools. We will also take this opportunity to explore mobile learning connected with these tools. There will be synchronous and asynchronous text chat and voice interactions  held by session moderators with participants throughout the week. Other tools such as Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, and Instagram will be explored due to  the potential they hold for communication and specifically, mobile learning.  In addition, we will explore Padlet for sharing audio and video messages . There will be an online live session, where participants explore the potential of mobile learning for language teaching. 




Week 3:


27 Jan.-2 Feb. 2019

Multimedia and presentation Tools. 

In the third week we will have a look at different tools for processing photos or pictures and creating video-like presentations. We will use Animoto, PhotoPeach, Flickr and Youtube. In addition, a choice of optional multimedia tools for more advanced users will be provided, such as Prezi, Slideshare, or Sway. Participants will use a selection of tried and tested multimedia tools. They will be able to make their multimedia creations visible online through blogs or wikis and share them with other participants. 



Week 4:


3-9 Feb. 2019

Interactive assessment tools.

Participants will learn how to create their own interactive exercises and quizzes for the classroom and make them visible online.  They will share their creations in their blogs or wikis as well as in our Google Classroom.They will explore Edmodo and learn about quizzes and polls created there. 





Week 5: 


10-17 Feb. 2019

Cooperating online & wrap-up. 

During the last week, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on how they may use the tools they have seen during these weeks in their classrooms. They are also invited to share contact information in order to find future partners and develop collaborative projects between classes.  There will be a live session where participants become familiar with Webheads In Action (WIA) and how to share post-ICT4ELT work. By the end of this final week, participants will share their reflections on ICT4ELT, complete the EVO final survey and join the live "Graduation ceremony". Participants will be invited to join the WIA community of practice.







Other technology tools:


Skype, Twitter, Backchannel Chat, Google tools and so much more.

Incidentally, we specify that we will only accept join requests that appear to emanate from people who are not trying to hide their real identities. That is, we accept requests where the names appear to link to identifiable people who could be potential colleagues as opposed to gamers apparently using pseudonyms. As we are a community of practice interested in assisting each other in using ICT4ELT tools creatively and constructively with students, we typically reject the latter.


If you are a bona fide educator wishing to join us, and for some reason we reject you, please send an email to the primary contact given at the end of this page, explaining why you feel you fit in with our community, and we'll sort it out.
