English Vocation
Let's help our students say it in English
The reward is direct...
Where do 2.0 apps fit in all this?
We can express ourselves through image and text...
Working with video
2.0 Apps can help us cover all skills... let's have a look at some of them
Rubrics are possibly the best way...
Tasks with videos can be extremely helpful and rewarding....
They can help us engage our students into speaking and communicating
...and illustrate stories, projects, ideas...
We can write to describe, communicate, give our opinion, instructions...
They are easy to learn... even for me
They foster creativity
self-esteem
They are rewarding
...and they are very collaborative
What do we need to achieve with our students?
Make them speak!!!
Oral English is paramount in their professional careers and their personal life
There's no point in learning how to use tenses and structures....
If you don't know how to use them communicatively
This is why we should do our best to speak English with our students in class
The minute they see they
can say something in English...
That helps them raise their learner's
self-esteem...
...and makes them feel confident to speak!

If you need to make them speak...

-They can be adapted from other rubrics
-We can decide what to assess and how
-Students know what aspects are going to be assessed, and what the expectations are
In short...
2.0 Apps can help us carry out our goals in a more engaging way...
Make our students use English communicatively...
...and effectively!!!
