Chiba JALT:

1. Building your own interactive whiteboard: methods and applications; 2. Extensive reading with low level learners

Date: Sunday, May 18th, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: 1. Nick Delleman; 2. Fiona MacGregor

1. The interactive whiteboard may soon be a feature of all language classrooms. With a little ingenuity and 6000 yen, teachers can introduce the technology into any space with a projector or television. The process is uncomplicated but the results are spectacular. Participants will have the opportunity to try it and discuss applications.

2. Extensive reading can increase motivation and confidence as well as vocabulary and reading fluency. Even very weak students can benefit from a new series of graded readers. Setting up and managing a class library will be demonstrated.
