Speaker: Fuyuhiko Sekido, Matt Shannon and Emery Premeaux, Alexander Procter, John Finucane, Lawrence Cisar, Alana Schramm

Today's presentations:

  • Using Japanese Lyrics in the Language Classroom
    Fuyuhiko Sekido
    In this presentation, the presenter will explain an effective way to use J-pop (Japanese Pop Music) and its lyrics. One of the features is CGP, cross-gendered performance, and it makes students think about the difference between Japanese and English. The presenter will tell the exact procedure, and show what materials and activities will be successful for the class.
  • Daiso Classroom
    Matt Shannon and Emery Premeaux
    It would be about using some unconventional stationery in the classroom, and it's a great little workshop that includes something like a paper Sim City. You'd be surprised what these things can do!
  • Effective Task Based Learning Through Jigsaw Activities
    Alexander Procter
    This technique promotes learner autonomy by increasing participation, and promoting interaction through jigsaw activities.
  • How to Create an Effective 'Cloze' Listening Activity
    John Finucane
    A cloze activity is one in which learners listen for words omitted from a passage which they are given. Some practical advice on how to create an effective music cloze activity will be given. An example activity based on Trash (by Suede) is included. Effective cloze activities are those which learners can successfully complete, learn something from and enjoy.
  • Making Ebooks For Your Students
    Lawrence Cisar
    Many of our students have either a Kindle or an ebook (Nook), and/or they have them on their PC and smartpphone. This presentation demonstrates how to prepare material and put it into the right form using only FREE software.
  • Using Sounds and Smells to Teach Vocabulary
    Alana Schramm
    This activity teaches vocabulary in an active, enjoyable way. It aims to help retention of vocabulary while motivating students though a more active learning environment.

Each presenter will speak for a short time on their topic.
