Flipping Mother Tongue oracy lessons with digital storytelling and social learning

This is my first attempt to share some of my ideas to flip teaching and learning. I picked oracy lesson because I have been using tools like VoiceThread for oracy teaching and assessment for a few years. I still believe there are a lot of room for improvement. I will continue to explore further and sharpen my flipping practices. I hope I can come up with a proposal for iCTLT 2014 based on this sharing 🙂

My To-Do list for iCTLT 2012!

2 years ago I missed iCTLT because I was away for army reservist. I’m glad I am able to attend iCTLT 2012! 😀

I still remember I used Twitter to follow the conference then. This time round Twitter is unleashed and the hash tag #ictlt2012 has been enjoying success in usage.

My To-Do list:

1. Must attend @Sham Sensei‘s awesome ‘Lead Teach Tweet’.

2. Support my colleague’s presentation on using Digital Mind Mapping with Popplet.

3. Meet up with the great people behind Edmodo and Core Education.

4. Many concurrent sessions related to using technology to teach languages.

5. Meet up with like-minded educators and wonderful tweeps in my Twitter PLN.

See you in iCTLT 2012! 😉
