Babel Tower Language Services

BTLS - English is fun! Have you ever wondered why it is so difficult to communicate with foreigners or learn a language? (Genesis 11: 1-9)

The Book of Genesis seems to provide the answer:

The Tower of Babel
1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

FREE ONLINE COURSE FOR LANGUAGE TEACHERS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES IN SYDNEY

Are you an educator? Have you ever wanted to understand more about how to design your class to make better use of educational technology – whether fully online or in blended contexts? Would you like to learn from those who have extensive practical experience with online technologies?

The Learning to Teach Online (LTTO) MOOC will help you develop a working understanding of successful online teaching strategies that you can apply in your own practice. The course is based upon the multi award winning open educational resource developed by Dr Simon McIntyre and Karin Watson.

Integrating online technologies into your teaching can be a challenging prospect, and it can be difficult to know how to approach it effectively for the benefit of both students and yourself. No one knows your own content and teaching strengths better than you, and the “one size fits all” formula doesn’t always suit everyone. No matter what type of technology you are interested in exploring or your level of experience, this course will help you draw on your teaching strengths and find the approach that is right for you, your students and your educational context.

This course will guide you through your journey of understanding how online technologies can enhance your course design. You will have the opportunity to develop your understanding of effective online teaching practices and their relationship to the use of different technologies. You will also be encouraged to progressively design and reflect upon your own online learning activity, assessment or resource for use in your own class if you choose to undertake the course assignments.

HUGH DELLAR TEACHING ONLINE USING ZOOM: 2020 18/03/2020

Hugh Dellar has shared a video of him using ZOOM to teach other teachers online!

A few words from Hugh:
" As more and more of you are pivoting to online teaching at the moment, I know that the fear of tech can be strong. I certainly used to have it, that's for sure! However, it doesn't have to be terrifying - and, to be honest it also doesn't have to be that technical! The things that motivate students online are the same things that motivate them face to face - involvement, interaction, good questions, stories, new language . . . Here's a recent video of me using the Zoom platform to teach a wonderful group of Russian teachers who are all part of the TEACHERS TEACH TEACHERS project. we were using pages 113-117 of Outcomes Advanced, by the way. Please feel free to share with anyone who might find this useful. "

Sarah Hillyard - Positive Classroom, Positive Results

The positive Classroom

A positive classroom environment is one of the most important elements for successful learning. There is a tendency, however, to be vague about what exactly this means in practical terms. What are the different ways of creating a climate that is conducive to learning? This webinar will provide a space to reflect on the role and strategies of teachers in the creation of a positive classroom culture. Various teacher-tips will be given to discover the ingredients that go into making a thriving positive classroom that impacts positively on results.

Sarah Hillyard is an ELT consultant and teacher trainer based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She holds a Masters Degree in Teaching English to Young Learners from the University of York, UK. After teaching and coordinating in pre-primary contexts for many years, she now offers INSET sessions and consultancy for bilingual schools.

Gamification

Who is it for?
Description
Games have long been part of language teaching methods. Gamification is something else, and teachers can benefit from learning about the elements of games that may be effective in connecting to today's learners. Very importantly, teachers can develop a way of thinking about teaching and learning that takes a gaming approach and changes potentially passive “students” into active “players” in the classroom environment. As with anything else in education, it's how the techniques are used that makes a difference. This webinar will give a brief introduction to gamification with some insights from research, and present how teachers might use game elements effectively in their teaching. Suggestions for technology supports will also be offered. A website will provide links to additional resources and specific examples that teachers can use in their own classrooms.

About The Speaker:
Dr. Deborah Healey is the 2019-2020 President of the Board of Directors of TESOL International Association. She has taught online and face-to-face teacher training courses for the University of Oregon, primarily focusing on technology in education. She gamified both her online and her face-to-face courses. She has also taught ESL and EFL at community colleges and language institutes. She is a contributor to two TESOL Technology Standards publications, as well as the TESOL Encyclopedia of English Language Teaching, the Routledge Handbook of Language Learning and Technology, CALL Environments and A Handbook for Language Program Administrators. She has written and presented extensively in the US and internationally, most recently in Uruguay, Tunisia, England, Indonesia, Georgia, Croatia, Serbia, the West Bank, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, and Thailand. Her recent areas of research include gamification, massive open online courses, and online teaching approaches. Her doctorate is in Computers in Education.

Ideas for inclusion: International day of persons with disabilities webinar 26/11/2019

FREE ONLINE WEBINAR FOR EFL TEACHERS FROM THE BRITISH COUNCIL

Date: 3 December 2019, International Day of Persons with Disabilities
Time: 15.00 UK time (find out what time this is in your country)

Ideas for inclusion: International day of persons with disabilities webinar
About the webinar

In recognition of International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we have invited two expert teacher educators to discuss and explore ideas on being an inclusive teacher, based on their work and research with teachers around the world. There will be two short presentations relating to different teaching contexts and an opportunity to ask questions:

TESOL for the visually impaired in disadvantaged contexts – Ana María Elisa Díaz de la Garza

This presentation explores the importance of developing positive attitudes towards teaching students with special educational needs. A great number of teachers are not qualified to meet the needs of students with disabilities due to the lack of adequate resources and appropriate teacher training. This requires attitudinal, institutional and structural change in order to improve the quality of life and well-being of all members of society. I shall discuss what teachers can do to make the classroom a more welcoming environment for visually impaired and blind learners.

Successful inclusive education as practiced by teachers in Asia – Els Heijnen-Maathuis

I will give a short introduction about the background to a multi-country case study and its rights-based approach to inclusive education. A key message is that all children are unique, and that all have individual learning support needs, some more than others. I will then focus on children with disabilities and how these children are as different from each other as any other group of children, raising the question of whether labels, such as ‘special needs’ or ‘slow learner’, are useful when searching for the best teaching approach. I will then illustrate and discuss inclusive strategies (including some that did not work) tried out by the teachers related to learning barriers, inclusive pedagogy, teacher needs, and classroom action research. The webinar will conclude with a short reflection.

About the speakers
Ana works at the Tuxtla Language Faculty of the Autonomous University of Chiapas, Mexico. She holds a MEd degree in ELT Trainer Development from the University of Exeter and a PhD in Modern Languages from the University of Southampton. Ana has developed research projects and written academic articles.

Els holds a postgraduate degree in education (University Queensland). For 30 years she worked as an education and child rights specialist in different countries in East Africa, South and South-East Asia. She has written extensively about inclusive education, teacher development, child rights and action research in the classroom. She currently lives and works in Sri Lanka.

Observation and feedback: why is it so important to do it well? 20/11/2019

FREE ONLINE WEBINAR FOR EFL TEACHERS FROM THE BRITISH COUNCIL

Date: Tuesday, 26th November 2019 Time: 18.00 UK time

Observation and feedback: why is it so important to do it well?
This webinar will give those involved in observation and feedback the opportunity to discuss the challenges they have faced.

For many practising supervisors and teachers across the world, observation and feedback are key parts of the education and evaluation process. However, these important skills are not always given the recognition they deserve and relevant training often seems to be the exception rather than the rule. Additionally, for many participants, both supervisors and teachers, they are seen as being summative rather than formative or developmental.

This webinar will give those involved in observation and feedback the opportunity to discuss the challenges they have faced during the process. The way in which the experience can become more formative for those involved will also be covered, as well as the importance of building links with continuing professional development.

About the speaker

Amanda Howard has been an English language teacher, teacher educator and university lecturer in TESOL and Education for many years, working mainly in the Arabian Gulf and the UK. Her research interests focus on teacher development and evaluation and she is currently a visiting researcher at the University of Leeds. Amanda is also the Founder of Corinium Academic Solutions, an educational consultancy based in the UK.
