Transcript of ICT for teaching English to Grade 3 ESL students

Collaborative Learning
Why are we here?
Teaching English with Technology
Dvolver Moviemaker
Welcome, parents and carers of class 3R.

You have been directed to this site to learn how we intend to use Information Communication Technology (ICT) to support the students in our class who have English as their second language (ESL learners).

In our class of 28 students we currently have six students who are ESL learners:
3 students from India
2 students from China and,
1 student from Sudan.
We are going to look at three different ICT programs. Each program addresses different needs for an ESL student.

Linking English with
your native language
Easily create short simple movies.
ESL learners are supported when their target language is learned in an authentic way that is culturally relevant . Real life communicative tasks are more effective then merely reading the language.
ESL Students are naturally tempted to converse in their own language first. If clear links are provided, however, between their own language and English, this increases their confidence at speaking English.
ESL learners must be have a chance to consider how language relates to characterization.
ESL students need help writing sentences. Students find it much easier to write when provided with images and key words to help them get started.
Create captions, poems, or other texts.
Find phrases on the internet.
encourages ESL students to link similar phrases between the English version and that of their native language.

Helping ESL students write
Creative writing is a great way to speed up ESL students' learning and increase their confidence ... and it's fun!

The initial aim of creative writing is to let students experiment with vocabulary and to have fun grouping the words together.
Web 2.0 Tools for Teachers suggests using Dvolver moviemaker to demonstrate tenses: http://bit.ly/1pvOQ1J
ESL Students can effectively learn tenses (past, present, or future) by role-playing simple scripts involving different tenses.
Dvolver moviemaker
allows the teacher or students to write scripts which demonstrate talking about the past, present, and future.

Creative writing
We will be using ICTs to help teach English to your ESL learner. ICTs will promote their confidence, help them to learn together with other ESL learners, link English back to their native language, encourage them to speak English in real life scenarios, and learn complex grammatical rules.

We hope you are convinced that our choice of ICTs will promote your child's successful acquisition of the English language .

Regards, Christy
