What would you like to talk about on Wednesday, November 28, 2012?

Time to Vote!

 

 

 

 

If you have an idea for a topic for Wednesday’s chat then leave it as a comment on the blog and we’ll include it in the poll once voting starts on Monday.

The top choice in the poll will be discussed at 21.00 GMT and the 2nd choice at 12.00 GMT.

Each week we alternate top and second choice.

Please bear in mind that if you are proposing a topic you should try and join the chat if it is chosen (though time zones can make that difficult). Please also note that the chat moderators do monitor the voting. There have been recent cases of block voting which has skewed and manipulated the polls. In such cases the votes will be disqualified and results of poll will be announced on our blog.

Since we started #ELTchat in September 2010, 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!

    Paper-less and …teacher-less education.When and Why?

  2. I’d like to put two from last week’s poll to the vote again:

    1. The impact of conformity on teaching.

    2. How about surprise as the main way to trigger students’ responses in esl classes. Techniques and tips to make your lessons astounding.

    I also join the suggestion of Lesley about the impact of conformity as this was my suggestion

    Exams are here again…as for the speaking part ..do we prepare our ss to speak naturally or to become parrots in order to score points in a speaking exam?? I recently tested my own kids (native speakers) and they would probably have failed due to the exam criteria..!!!
