Fukuoka JALT:

My Share

Date: Saturday, January 24th, 2015 Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Speaker: Various

'MyShare' events feature short presentations from a variety of teachers on a variety of topics. Come along and get some ideas to take into classes in 2015. Presentations will include:

  • Kate Parkinson
    Facilitating student presentations to replace tests in Speaking Skills classes
    Kate will outline a semester's lesson schedule that allows students to give both poster and speech presentations in class, in lieu of traditional mid-term and end-of-term tests. She will show how the guidelines are presented to students and how the presentations are assessed.
  • Aaron Hahn
    A Game of Judgment
    Aaron will demonstrate a game he uses in his courses. He currently uses it for teaching comparatives, but he will show how the game's flexible nature allows it to be used for a variety of teaching objectives.
  • Robert Cochrane
    Google Forms: An easy online way to do surveys, quizzes and assessments
    Google Forms are a free and relatively easy way to take your classes into the 21st century. This presentation will introduce how Google Forms can take research and assessment online and paperless with surveys and self marking quizzes and assignments. Free yourself from making prints and put the responsibility of completing assignments in the students' hands (or their phones, tablets or computers).
  • Scott Smith
    Use of Google Drive for Formative Assessment
  • Adam Stone
