The PoodLL Voice Activity is a great tool to work on some pronunciation problems with your students. I love doing the "Benjamin Franklin" pronunciation exercises with my students in class. I often don't have enough time to go over it with every single student in the classroom (due to many reasons, but mostly due to time restrictions) so I ask them to record their texts at home and compare them to my PoodLL Voice "Benjamin Franklin" recording. This is a fun way of working on student pronunciation issues.
Use Questionnaire for the pre/post term surveys and or for choosing themes for PBLA.
Using the questionnaire as a needs assessment. Ranking is a great way to get an idea of what is the most important and the least important topics for students.
For the lower levels, pictures that are used for selecting a theme could be used for making a questionnaire.
Add a quiz for students to answer about the web links provided in the scorm activities.
Create link to a Quizlet set for each SCORM in order to give students the opportunity to practice meaning and spelling.
I am excited about the SCORM activities: they seem to me to be very easy to manage: I can keep track of the individual, as well as class grades, and use that information for planning further lessons, as well as assessment.
SCORM activities provide instant feedback for students which is exactly what the students want.
A hands on activity for beginners to practise correct spelling by identifying vowels, beginning sounds and ending sounds.
SCORM for grammar practice
I really want to try building a SCORM activity to help my students improve their grammar skills. At this level (LINC 5) students still struggle with sentence structure.
At first they will watch a youtube educational video, like this one, for example: . Then learners will do a quiz to check their comprehension. Finally, they will reorder words to make questions in a Jumbled-Sentence Exercise.
