OUPELTGlobal 12:16 PM Imagining the picture as part of a news article - what's the article about?  #eltchat

OUPELTGlobal 12:17 PM @bcnpaul1 Ss are usually surprised by the impressions they've formed from a pic and how different those impressions can be #eltchat

OUPELTGlobal 12:19 PM @harrisonmike I really like that - real communication, taking it beyond the classroom #eltchat

AlexandraKouk 12:20 PM So on the whole pics are used as prompts - would you ever ask your Ss to take pics?
e_clements 12:20 PM #eltchat Show a corner/tiny part of an image (maybe of a vocab item) - ask ss what it might be, then keep zooming out. Do the ideas change?
Richmond_ELT 12:20 PM Using mosaic maker http://t.co/HwWhrBfU for sts to create stories and discuss themes #eltchat

Shaunwilden 12:37 PM @BobK99 Cool, I can take lots of photos of the demo at the weekend then :-) #eltchat
Marisa_C 12:37 PM Images are mentioned very often for their creative thinking potential by many eg Edward de Bono #eltchat
AlexandraKouk 12:37 PM So many great ideas! Difficult to keep up! RTing like crazy :-) #eltchat
rliberni 12:38 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @OUPELTGlobal An app such as photocomic does that very nicely ti make the bubble look like part of the pic #eltchat
rliberni 12:38 PM RT @Marisa_C: Images are mentioned very often for their creative thinking potential by many eg Edward de Bono #eltchat
AlexandraKouk 12:38 PM RT @marisa_c: Ss can describe what is OUTside the picture and another student can try to draw it #eltchat
bcnpaul1 12:38 PM @Shaunwilden @marisa_c suggestion for #eltchat - every 15 mins have a minute silence so ppl can catch up & review prev. tweets!
rliberni 12:38 PM RT @esolcourses: @Marisa_C vocaroo is another great audio tool to use in combination with images  - super simple to use  http://t.co/KO5t882C  #eltchat
rliberni 12:38 PM RT @Marisa_C: Ss can describe what is OUTside the picture and another student can try to draw it #eltchat

rliberni 12:39 PM @aClilToClimb  gr8 suggestion pictiures can enhance any kibd of writing (not IELTS :-( - leaflets, stories,  reports etc.. #eltchat
MellynEducation 12:39 PM @Marisa_C or one student can see pic and describe to the other who is drawing. Simple images with placement vocab? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 12:39 PM @bcnpaul1 Or set your tweetdeck so the tweets coming in less frequently? #eltchat
Richmond_ELT 12:39 PM @AlexandraKouk We agree! @cerirhiannon has got loads more ideas, some of which we have been tweeting about today #eltchat
aClilToClimb 12:39 PM @Marisa_C yes, I use that for speaking. I say imagine you're Google Earth. Zoom in & out. Again, think 5 senses. #eltchat
lu_bodeman 12:39 PM #eltchat Worked w them the first time by quickly displaying pics, and ss would share w a partner the story behind it
esolcourses 12:39 PM RT @jobethsteel: #eltchat I use eltpics for my wikis with my sts and have introduced all the other teachers  (70+) to them too.
rliberni 12:39 PM RT @aClilToClimb: of course eltpics is a great source for bloggers (student blogs, included)! ;-) #eltchat
bcnpaul1 12:40 PM @Shaunwilden Is that possible? #eltchat
Marisa_C 12:41 PM but the #eltpics flicker stream can be used - eg show one category Ss describe photo and others guess which one #eltchat
bealer81 12:41 PM RT @bcnpaul1: warmer: pics around the room. sts choose 1 & write 5 words describing how they feel about it. others guess the pic #eltchat
Marisa_C 12:41 PM @MellynEducation yes that;s the idea #eltchat

Shaunwilden 12:45 PM @e_clements what a good idea turn #eltpics in to a class task :-) #eltchat
aClilToClimb 12:45 PM @TailormadeEng i guess it's inevitable that the two wud be mixed up :) #eltchat
e_clements 12:45 PM Does anyone ask ss 2 upload 2 #eltpics e.g. pics for the week's theme? Describe pic to the class: where taken/why it fits theme etc #eltchat
bcnpaul1 12:45 PM @Shaunwilden :) #eltchat - will look at how to do this, although today is a nice steady stream
esolcourses 12:46 PM RT @bcnpaul1: warmer: pics around the room. sts choose 1 & write 5 words describing how they feel about it. others guess the pic #eltchat
bcnpaul1 12:47 PM re: warmer - perhaps not just 'how they feel..' but also words they associate with the image #eltchat
worldteacher 12:47 PM Have used the 'weird, wacky English' #eltpics set with higher level sts for error correction, why is it wrong/funny?, etc. #eltchat
teacherphili 12:47 PM #eltchat using Bubblr with Flickr photos. Inc #eltpics ?
jobethsteel 12:47 PM @e_clements  #eltchat  Good idea to get sts to put up pics too.
TailormadeEng 12:47 PM Give Ss an abstract theme e.g. security they find 3 pics which represent and explain why. Later add their own photo #eltchat

rliberni 12:49 PM Create lexical sets, use more abstract words w/more advanced students and have them explain the reason for their choice of pic #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 12:49 PM I think it's important to tell ss that images helps them remember language better - lead them to create thjeir own bank of images #eltchat
Richmond_ELT 12:50 PM Make a mosaic of strange close ups at http://t.co/HwWhrBfU for sts to guess what they are using modals of speculation #eltchat
