My PLN – Update 1

Well, it’s been a while since I started learning about Professional/Personal Learning Networks (PLNs).  I did become pretty bogged down in completing my assignment at uni. Now that’s over, I’m focussing on expanding my PLN in teaching adult students learning English as an additional language (EAL).

I’ve been following more people on Twitter, but I’m finding it hard to find people who focus on adult EAL learners. In the next week, I’m going to see if there is anything relevant that was discussed in the recent IATEFL conference.

 

Websites

Here are some sites that I find useful for listening resources:

Elllo

Six Minute English (BBC)

Here are some websites that I find helpful for creating speaking resources:

Kahoot and Quizlet for interactive vocabulary games. I’ve created lots of quizzes that anyone can use.

Let’s Talk About… worksheets on ISL Collective. I split these up into individual cards, give one card to each student and have them go around and interview the other students.

 

Other Social Media

To do this week:

  • Investigate Facebook groups
  • See what is available on Instagram and Pinterest
  • Find research on classroom communication in TESOL via the QUT Library
  • Find more blogs in my area
