Kitakyushu JALT:

My Share: The High-Tech Classroom

Date: Saturday, March 12th, 2005 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Hiroshi Otani and others

The difficulty that teachers of English in EFL environments must face lies in the fact that they are expected to raise the students' English abilities as a whole, including those of some (often many!) students with little motivation to study the language. To compensate for their apparent lack of motivation for English, teachers have often taken advantage of college entrance examinations to push them into English learning. However, there was not even such instrumental motivation in Japanese colleges of technology, or Kosen as they are known in Japanese. I will introduce a couple of web-based vocabulary drills with self-developed databases by a group of Kosen teachers of English. They are still in the stage of pilot studies being conducted at a handful of Kosens, but have received favorable feedback from both the teachers and the learners so far.
