I caught up with Roger Fusselman after his KOTESOL conference presentation on using TED talks and videos in general for language teaching. This is a MUST listen for anyone using visual media in the classroom.

We cover the DOs and DON’Ts of choosing videos as well as his principles of using media:

Challenge / Meaningful / Support / Choice / Integration (connecting ideas) / Variety / Application

15 – The Student Becomes The Teacher – Justin McKibben

Posted on Updated on

MOT 2 1400

In the first of this batch of hit-n-run quickie interviews from the KOTESOL conference in Seoul at the end of 2016, I spoke to Justin McKibben about how we can expand students roles. By giving students certain speaking tasks the traditional classroom would consider a teacher’s job, we can vastly increase student talk time and give them a broader sense of control in their own classroom.

Justin takes us through some of the techniques we can use in our classrooms to shift away from the traditional teacher-fronted classroom. You can start using these techniques immediately.
