Fukuoka JALT:

Two Sessions on Communicative CALL

Date: Saturday, September 17th, 2005 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Ian Brown

Session 1: The Communicative CALL Teacher
This session will look at the role of the successful Communicative CALL teacher. Using computers should be no different to using whiteboards and CD players and the same communicative methodology used in the classroom can and should be applied when using CALL. Successful CALL is built on integration to the curriculum with proficient guidance from teachers that can provide many advantages for communicative teaching. As well as providing a theoretic underpinning, practical ideas and guidelines to 'good' CALL teaching will be discussed.

Session 2: Sample Communicative CALL Lesson Activities
This session will demonstrate practical activities for using the WWW for communicative CALL, revolving around commonly used topics such as newspapers, weather, movies and recipes. They build on a number of language skills and can be adapted for different levels. All activities include pre and/or post classroom lessons and procedures, demonstrating how CALL can be used communicatively and integrated to classroom study. Complete lesson plans and procedures will be provided that the participants will be able to use in their classes.

Ian Brown (Grad. Dip Ed TESOL, Master of Ed TESOL) is currently teaching at Kyoto Sangyo University. His teaching background spans over fifteen years with experience teaching in Japan, Australia and Thailand. He has a long interest in CALL and for a number of years coordinated all aspects of the extensive CALL program at the Australian Centre of Languages in Sydney. He has presented papers and workshops on various aspects of ELT and CALL at conferences and workshops in Japan, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
