What would you like to talk about on #ELTchat on September 21st?

A PLN for ELT Professionals

What would you like to talk about on #ELTchat on September 21st?

Please post your topics for our next #ELTchat on Wednesday, September 7th. The highest polling suggestions from last week that were not chosen will automatically be added to this week’s poll but is there anything else that you think might make a good topic for Wednesday’s chat!

Top choice will be discussed at 12.00 BST & 2nd choice at 21.00 BST

All times are British Summertime times. Each week we alternate top and second choice.

How to choose topics for #ELTchat Discussions

Since we started #ELTchat last September, we have discussed a wide number of topics, but with many new members joining our conversations every week, it is very natural that we will get requests for topics which we “have done”.

Please, include topics which

• have not been covered already in previous #ELTchats

• are relevant to ELT teachers and teaching foreign languages

• are not targeted attacks on individuals or institutions

• are simply and clearly expressed.

The #ELTchat moderators reserve the right not to post comments or to include them in the poll if they do not follow the above guidelines.

Before you propose a topic, do please check the transcripts index on this blog or go to the #ELTchat wiki and click on the Transcripts or Summaries Links to see what has been covered so far.

If you see your topic but would still like to discuss a different aspect or set of issues, do submit it and we will consider including it again!

Voting Time!

  1. Trying this one again…

    Using virtual worlds (i.e. second life) for ELT – the what, why & how.

    …following on from SLanguages 2011 Conference in Second Life (on right this minute!)

    Thanks for the photo credit, although credit should also go to @elt_pics, @fionamau and @cgoodey 🙂

    Here’s my suggestion for this week, though I liked a lot of the ones last week too (poetry, dictionaries and role plays especially):
    How can we encourage students to focus more on their accuracy without undermining their confidence?

    I liked the one from last week about reading aloud.
    Is there any benefit to getting students to read aloud or is it, in fact, a waste of their time!

    How to teach receptive skills in class and get Sts to engage with it? – finding the balance between form and meaning.
