Praktische Tipps für die Anwendung von Padlet im Unterricht

Praktische Tipps für die Anwendung im Unterricht:

Damit SuS einen Zugriff auf die “Wall” haben können, muß der Lehrer das Padlet-Programm öffnen und ihnen die Adresse mitteilen, z.B. padlet.com/wall/9dbve1hh3p.

Rechts das Zeichen “Einstellungen” (Zahnrädchen) anklicken, dann “Privacy” (Schloßzeichen), unter der Rubrik “Totally Public” soll dann “can write” ausgewählt werden. Erst dann können die SuS ihre Beiträge auf der Seite hinterlassen und diese gemeinsam bearbeiten. Man kann die Gruppenarbeit durchführen, indem man mehrere solche “Walls” öffnet.

Around the world – India

We have used the following applications:

Glogster

Goanimate

We produced the following animated products:

India

South Africa with an embedded Animation

 

Positive Experiences with Goanimate:

  • + Fun to work with anaimation
  • + Easy to follow instructions
  • +Promotes writing, reading and listening skills
  • + Can promote speaking skills, if feature is chosen
  • + Idea for slow learners: just type dialogues, let them read aloud by programme
  • + Differentiation is possible by quantity i.e. more or less detailed

Critical Remarks:

  • – the more detailed animations can be difficult to edit/ amend
  • – system crashing can lead to total loss of work  —-> ALLWAYS       SAVE        during      PROCESS !!!

Positive Experiences with Glogster:

  • + Works like an interactive Advance Organizer
  • + Good starting point for an exploration
  • + Makes comprehensive survey about a topic possible
  • + All language skills are involved
  • + Differentiation is possible by interest (free choice and varied instruction is possible)
  • Critical Remarks:
  • – Needs longer time to understand the functions
  • – Must be used precisely
  • – Lack of navigation after cklicking on the elements

 

 

 

Neue Medien ….

Der Workshop ‘Neue Medien’ eröffnete eine Reihe von Möglichkeiten zum Einsatz im Englischunterricht. So bieten die Plattformen Padlet und Linoit zahlreiche Anwendungsmöglichkeiten. Beispielsweise können darauf Informationen (Links, Fotos, Videos) themenbezogen zusammengetragen werden, die eine Grundlage zur vielfältigen Weiterarbeit darstellen. Außerdem können diese Plattformen in Präsentationsphasen als virtuelle Poster dienen, darin können ebenfalls unterschiedliche Medien eingebunden werden. Das Tool goanimate bietet die Möglichkeit, kurze  animierte Videos herzustellen, die auf vielfältige Weise in den Unterricht eingebunden werden und auch von den SuS genutzt werden können.

Vom gelenkten Unterricht bis hin zum Freien Arbeiten kann durch die Neuen Medien die gesamte Bandbreite abgedeckt werden. Die Lehrperson kann sich individuell auf die Lehrausgangslage der SuS einstellen und dementsprechend eine Beteiligung aller SuS am Unterricht ermöglichen.  Für den effektiven Einsatz ist eine klare Zielformulierung zwingend notwendig.

Task for group 1 (London)

London

London 

Imagine you want to create a lesson plan about London. The central theme is: Students have to plan activities for a class trip to the British capital. Since London has a huge variety of interesting places and things to do every group of students gets their own canvas in en.linoit.com . Each canvas should cover different aspects of the trip.

Possible group topics could be:

  • Travel in/to London
    • How to get to London (coach and ferry/Channel Tunnel/train/plane?)
    • How to get around London (tube/bus/bike/boat/oyster card)
  • Attractions – Museums
  • Attractions – Parks
  • Sightseeing – The Top 10 sights you have to see in London!
    • What, in your opinion, are the top 10 London sights every visitor has to see?
  • London for free!
    • See as much of London as you can, without spending a penny! What museums and attractions are free?
  • The River Thames
    • Take a tour along the River Thames by boat, foot or bike, what can you see along the way?
  • Sport in London
    • Major sporting events – The Olympics, London Marathon
    • Football – different stadia and teams, Wembley Stadium

Every group has to find videos on YouTube and pictures and photos online to post on their group canvas. Each group has to present their canvas to the class so that everyone can see what they’ve discovered. Kids can also make a goanimate video on their topic to open up their presentation and create something fun.

The teacher’s role here is to prepare the canvases and give students possible links and addresses on the web so they don’t get lost.  Use en.linoit.com yourself to collect ideas and findings.  Also make a video with www.goanimate.com and publish it on our blog.

Please don’t forget that every group member has to create a short blog post on his / her experiences during the workshop. We want to find out more about the usability and potential of new media  to promote inclusion in the EFL classroom. 

Tip:

  • To use the online tools above you need to register, all you need is an email address and a password – don’t worry it’s free!
