CALL Lessons

Page history last edited by Teresa Almeida d'Eca 13 years, 10 months ago






Here are few blended lessons carried out with my EFLers for two years. All made their day!  :-)


It was generally a 50-minute lesson with my own laptop, a video projector, a whiteboard and the school's Internet connection. Students took turns at the laptop in each lesson and I jotted down the names so that everyone got a chance at the computer. The other students would sit at their desks collaborating in each activity, giving hints, etc.


Geography lesson (includes a table that was filled in with the help of a World Atlas and then Quia exercises based on the content of the table)




Making animated movies

  • practice writing and reading
  • practice and reinforce vocab and grammar



Time zones (in preparation for an end-of-year-surprise, a voice chat with a "mystery guest")


Time zones 2

  • completing a table with different info about each teacher-friend
  • creating a Google map
  • writing a short text about each teacher in the corresponding placemarker


Voice chat (with a teacher-friend)

  • log in to Yahoo Messenger
  • have the chat
  • listen to the recording
  • write a short text about the teacher in a Google map 



Other lessons that may be of interest

Our school and hometown (messages sent to a colleague in Sudan and another in Argentina, and to teacher-friends; there are also photos and maps that I inserted after the lesson, because there was no time)


Brazil and Portugal interacting through blogs (Carla Arena and 5D comment on the World Cup: 5D went to Carla's blog to leave their message) + Report (with photos of the students)




After all this hard, but very exciting, motivating and rewarding work, we got the greatest reward we could have ever expected: The European Union Schoolnet international e-Learning Awards 2007 , Gold Prize in the category of "School of the future".
