MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:03:31 @Marisa_C Hi Marisa, happy to be able to join in again.  What is the topic exactly? #ELTchat
AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:03:52 Fresh from an exciting experience in my school today - Escape Room made by strong 7th grade EFL students in Israel! Low-tech & fun! #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:04:02 @Marisa_C @fionaljp @AdeleRaemer Interesting at my end. Not too stressful, but looking forward to my break next week #eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:04:27 @MarjorieRosenbe Great to see you - missed you lately #ELTchat
TeresaBestwick 2017-06-14T18:04:36 Evening all!  I'll be around for a bit, but I'm cooking dinner tonight so will head off about halfway through :( #Eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:04:44 @MarjorieRosenbe @Marisa_C Times are changing. Are we teachers changing accordingly? How? #eltchat
NikkiFortova 2017-06-14T18:04:59 @Marisa_C Hi Marisa :) looking forward to the chat #eltchat
TeresaBestwick 2017-06-14T18:05:01 @AdeleRaemer Sounds awesome!  #Eltchat

AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:05:34 @TeresaBestwick It was! #ELTchat Wanted to share pics but have to reduce sizes
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:06:04 @fionaljp @Marisa_C @AdeleRaemer We've got another year before ours- then it will be manic. Summer schools are about to start here. #Eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:06:48 Are you finding much variety in the type of classes you are teaching ? #Eltchat

AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:07:28 I discovered some GREAT AR tools this  year! #eltchat

TeresaBestwick 2017-06-14T18:11:05 @SueAnnan @seburnt We're getting there slowly in Andalucía compared with big cities like Madrid and Barcelona! #Eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:11:17 @TeresaBestwick @SueAnnan @Marisa_C Exactly.  Even in the interviews done on Glasgow Online this year. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:11:27 @seburnt Yes - the tech is the obvious answer - not all Ts able to catch up but much more open now than say in 2010 when #ELTchat started
seburnt 2017-06-14T18:11:30 @MarjorieRosenbe @TeresaBestwick @SueAnnan @Marisa_C Have these played a role in teaching practice or education mor… https://t.co/1D8TKy9AU5
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:11:41 @AdeleRaemer What are AR tools? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:11:53 I think our awareness of NNESTS is better too, but not yet across the board #eltchat
AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:12:00 @MarjorieRosenbe Augmented Reality - adding layers of information #ELTChat

fionaljp 2017-06-14T18:12:20 @Marisa_C Yes, this the huge change - availability/opportunity of personalised CPD #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:12:28 But has this instant information gratification produced better teachers? What do you think? #ELTChat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:12:49 @David__Boughton @MarjorieRosenbe @TeresaBestwick @Marisa_C Maybe a bit of both. Just more awareness raising in general I feel #Eltchat

fionaljp 2017-06-14T18:13:50 @Marisa_C more informed and aware - great way to update skills and knowledge #ELTChat if interested
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:14:05 We live in internet times .... #ELTchat times counted differently I guess
AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:14:09 @Marisa_C #ELTchat Teachers need to keep up with students - or even ahead of them to help them deal with tech out there
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:14:12 @Marisa_C Not really. Ts still need to be passionate about what they do #eltchat
TeresaBestwick 2017-06-14T18:14:34 @Marisa_C Perhaps more procrastination and possibly negative comparison with others could be downsides to online CPD #eltchat
AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:14:46 @SueAnnan @Marisa_C Thanks to tech, I am even MORE passionate than ever! Staying excited and interested after 36 years teaching #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:15:00 @SueAnnan This hasn't been much of an issue here in Austria - can't say in other places. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:15:06 At least we don't have to chase new methodologies #eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:15:29 @AdeleRaemer @SueAnnan True - I think we can get hung up on learning from what others do! #eltchat social media highly addictive
NikkiFortova 2017-06-14T18:15:41 @Marisa_C Hmmm, information and knowledge are very different things - so I'd say no, it doesn't mean better teachers #eltchat

David__Boughton 2017-06-14T18:15:57 What would people say are changing trends in methodology? I'm not so up-to-date on the research and conferences. #eltchat
AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:16:05 @MarjorieRosenbe @SueAnnan WHat are NNESTS? #eltchat

Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:17:13 @NikkiFortova but connecting with other Ts has made reflective teaching or the pursuit for excellence more visible I think to all #ELTChat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:18:04 Non Native English Speaking Teachers #ELTChat https://t.co/zlZteYItOZ
TeresaBestwick 2017-06-14T18:18:24 In Spain, a definite exam focus which was less prevalent when I first arrived - all after B1/B2 - but for the paper, not the level #eltchat
vbenevolofranca 2017-06-14T18:18:56 One of the things that is changing here in Brazil is the market: from language courses to English in schools.This affects teachers  #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:19:01 and we are seeing many more people doing IELTS and moving away from Cambridge FCE etc #eltchat
AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:19:09 Do any of you have mass high stakes oral assessment that uses tech? #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:19:12 @AdeleRaemer @SueAnnan Has this been an issue Adele?  Does everyone qualified get jobs? #ELTchat
AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:19:42 @MarjorieRosenbe @SueAnnan I don't know what NNESTS are #ELTChat
TeresaBestwick 2017-06-14T18:19:49 @vbenevolofranca Very true - so many "bilingual" courses here (Spain) in Primary and Secondary too #eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:20:16 @vbenevolofranca Welcome Valeria - same in Greece - but thinking it's because of bad economin situ parents cut back #ELTChat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:20:17 Is Clil a thing in your schools? #Eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:20:30 @David__Boughton Good question, what do the others say? I only teach 1x1 and one small group and do what works for them. #ELTchat
TeresaBestwick 2017-06-14T18:20:38 @SueAnnan Interesting!  Here it's still very much Cambridge (or Trinity for those that wrongly think it's easier) #eltchat
seburnt 2017-06-14T18:20:59 @SueAnnan Have you experienced this reaction? I've always found the connections empowering and constructive. #eltchat

vbenevolofranca 2017-06-14T18:22:25 @SueAnnan It is starting to be a thing and publishing houses are claiming the schools with complete training packs and materials #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:22:39 I find more and more BE students coming our way. All interestingly different #eltchat Tomorrow I'm being lectured on DNS
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:22:51 @seburnt @SueAnnan I have very positive experiences myself - #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:23:12 @seburnt @SueAnnan Agree Tyson, I love my PLN. This is a change for me outside the classroom. #ELTchat

MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:24:47 One trend I have been hearing a lot about is recognising the multilingual classroom is widespread. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:25:18 And online teaching is booming Do we want to go there? #Eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:25:24 Very true - much more so also in Greece where monolingual was the norm #ELTChat https://t.co/D4ymte1H5M
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:25:53 Many people also get CPD online for free.  Loads of info out there. #ELTchat
AdeleRaemer 2017-06-14T18:26:17 #ELTchat Not keeping up - different situations and jargon than here.
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:26:20 Webinars for teachers are a great source of CPD but still rejected by many #Eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:26:39 @AdeleRaemer Sleep well.  have a good end of the semester. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:26:41 Another change is the shift to T reflection and Ts thinking more abt research though sadly research an expensive sport #ELTChat

SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:29:40 aren't we becoming blase with jargon these days, or has it always been like that? #Eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:30:22 Also new is bringing in social justice topics to the classroom. JJ Wilson's plenary was on this at #IATEFL2017. #ELTchat
vbenevolofranca 2017-06-14T18:30:56 @AdeleRaemer @SueAnnan Yes absolutely, more and more talked about. #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:31:17 @Wayzgoose_Press also has a book with photocopiable activities for social justice. #ELTchat  Good idea in times like this.

MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:42:33 @SueAnnan @Marisa_C But if things work well, do they have to be changed? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:42:56 @MarjorieRosenbe @Marisa_C I feel they do if students expect it #Eltchat
fionaljp 2017-06-14T18:43:07 @SueAnnan By not staying where they are? #ELTChat
David__Boughton 2017-06-14T18:43:12 @Marisa_C @MarjorieRosenbe Education is an interesting industry considering the amount of PD expected compared to other industries. #eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:43:29 @fionaljp AS in changing workplaces? #Eltchat
David__Boughton 2017-06-14T18:44:02 @SueAnnan Chatting with students and noticing how their needs/wants are changing. #eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:44:29 @fionaljp Honestly I work with some dinosaurs. We bring in CPD or they would get nowt. #Eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:44:53 @MarjorieRosenbe @SueAnnan The concept of 'working well' is often what is in question. May be an illusion born out… https://t.co/9hITmdVfuW
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:44:55 @SueAnnan @Marisa_C Mine don't but my situation is different.  At university they did. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:45:10 @David__Boughton I agree. But that isn't proactive #Eltchat
fionaljp 2017-06-14T18:45:22 #ELTchat Saw this the other day https://t.co/CZFG4f11pM
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:46:28 @fionaljp Aha. so that's where the idea came from! #Eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-06-14T18:47:02 @fionaljp Possibly ELT Ts now reading more general education texts - #eltchat more of them now available to us
fionaljp 2017-06-14T18:47:05 @SueAnnan No, as in doing the same thing all the time #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:47:25 @Marisa_C @SueAnnan With corporate training, contracts don't get renewed unless sts are happy and feel they are making progress. #ELTchat
fionaljp 2017-06-14T18:47:46 @SueAnnan Yes #ELTChat
seburnt 2017-06-14T18:47:49 Changes I like: isolation to collaboration; language only to intersectionality; intuition only to evidence-based mixture; etc. #eltchat

SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:51:21 @MarjorieRosenbe @Marisa_C My corporate sts are the same. If not happy- they would go somewhere else #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2017-06-14T18:52:03 How about fluency vs accuracy? Where does that come?  I am happy when my sts communicate and correct afterwards. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:52:29 @seburnt I was doing that years ago in a boarding school with sts from China and India. #ELTchat Had to pass more exams than just English
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:53:42 I'm much less worried about grammar. I find that the lexical areas  often offer quicker results. #Eltchat

seburnt 2017-06-14T18:59:25 @GlenysHanson Doesn't hurt, imho. #eltchat As I said, not reliance but inclusion of evidence.
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T18:59:37 I think a lot of change that eminates from management is not respected by staff and is diff. to keep up. There must be T will #Eltchat

GlenysHanson 2017-06-14T19:04:46 @seburnt  #eltchat Not against evidence based research, just when it's sloppily done. Just as sloppy in pharmaceutical rsrch - that's scarey
seburnt 2017-06-14T19:04:52 @RobertTaylorELT @MarjorieRosenbe This depends on target audience and their goals for learning, surely. #eltchat
SueAnnan 2017-06-14T19:05:26 Keep chatting in the slowburn. Handing over tonight, and DJ responsibilities, to @tesolmatthew See you all in a couple of weeks. #eltchat
RobertTaylorELT 2017-06-14T19:05:39 @Marisa_C @MarjorieRosenbe #eltchat agreed. Shocking that grammar isn't incontrovertibly seen as only part of a whole package, frankly.
