teacherphili 2017-05-17T18:51:50 @seburnt @TheodoreLalos @Marisa_C do you do individual screencasts for each Ss' feedback.  Is it not time-consuming?  #eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-05-17T18:52:22 @teacherphili @seburnt @TheodoreLalos @Marisa_C I suppose it depends how many students email homework? #eltchat

seburnt 2017-05-17T18:54:21 It's three modes: 1) indvdl SS work on smaller writing; 2) one texts used in class as a model for all. 3) bits of larger writing #eltchat
happytojoinyou 2017-05-17T18:54:26 @teacherphili @SueAnnan Minndmapping for vocab is the one my students like #eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-05-17T18:54:33 Ss need to know more abt the nature of Lang Learning to appreciate strats training,e,g how do ppl read and how should we go abt it? #ELTChat

TheodoreLalos 2017-05-17T18:56:47 @Marisa_C Couldn't agree more! They also need to compare and contrast the different strategies that they have used #ELTchat

Marisa_C 2017-05-17T18:57:37 Good use of learning strats leads to more successful autonomous learning during and AFTER a coure - see it is as part of my brief #ELTChat

Marisa_C 2017-05-17T18:58:26 @SueAnnan @TheodoreLalos correct #eltchat fully agree - one size does not fit all
seburnt 2017-05-17T18:58:39 @eltplanning Yes, but not just a checklist, but a walk through of rationale. Why are we doing something often equates to buy-in. #eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-05-17T18:58:44 Coming to the end of this amazingly lively discussion. Moving to slowburn now-and a summary writer would be appreciated. Takers? #eltchat

SueAnnan 2017-05-17T19:00:05 @seburnt @happytojoinyou @teacherphili @TheodoreLalos @Marisa_C Yes that often has more value #eltchat

Marisa_C 2017-05-17T19:01:45 @eltplanning Very sorry to hear that - a process orientation is not a choice - the level of explicitness of how you do it is #ELTchat
teacherphili 2017-05-17T19:02:01 @SueAnnan Would be my 10th summary. Do I get some kind of badge then @Marisa_C  ? #eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-05-17T19:02:28 @teacherphili @Marisa_C Yes. Don't you have one yet? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-05-17T19:02:30 @teacherphili @SueAnnan for sure!!!! A special one silver at least!!! #eltchat
teacherphili 2017-05-17T19:02:54 @Marisa_C @SueAnnan don't think i've got a bronze one yet, but happy to go straight to SILVER  ;-) #eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-05-17T19:03:05 @Marisa_C @teacherphili and I want a new one with a star on it :-) #ELTchat
seburnt 2017-05-17T19:03:18 So sorry for my tardiness this time (considering I have no concurrent meetings this week). I always think it's an hour later. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-05-17T19:03:30 @teacherphili @SueAnnan will check and sent appropriate code :-D #ELTChat
TheodoreLalos 2017-05-17T19:03:51 @Marisa_C There are many inspirational videos on Youtube available related to failure and how to overcome the fear of failure! #ELTchat

eltplanning 2017-05-17T19:08:04 @Marisa_C v true. Would appreciate tips on how to make things appear more process oriented #eltchat
TheodoreLalos 2017-05-17T19:08:06 @Marisa_C Well, we can talk about failure in a broader way, too! Then narrow it down to learning strategies :) #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-05-17T19:08:29 I wasn't going to participate but it was such a great opportunity to procrastinate and get out of marking phonology essays!!! :-) #ELTChat

SueAnnan 2017-05-17T18:04:37 I have to say, I am amazed by some of my students who have no idea how to study. They make long lists of new vocab- then do nothing #ELTchat
teacherphili 2017-05-17T18:04:54 It's been a while since I've had to explicitly set them out for my students but sure will in summer #ELTchat

teacherphili 2017-05-17T18:06:55 my 1-2-1 sts practice & have to use Eng every day but yes, vocabulary is one. But not enough autonomous learning  #eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-05-17T18:07:48 @teacherphili I suppose my students have to use it as they live in an E-speaking place, but sparingly, #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2017-05-17T18:07:53 I think a very important strategy is time management - SS can get overwhelmed actually by the amount of HW they have #eltchat
TheodoreLalos 2017-05-17T18:07:59 @SueAnnan #ELTchat Cognitive or Metacognitive ones?
