Article submissions for the May issue

We have started thinking about and preparing for the third issue of the Tunisian ELT Forum, which will be published in May 2010. If you are willing to contribute an article to the magazine and if you are particularly interested in “teaching and assessing speaking in the English classroom”, magazine articles are now being accepted.
Articles can focus on any of the following topics:
  • Techniques to foster speaking skills in TEFL
  • How to assess speaking skills?
  • Fluency and accuracy in the oral message.
  • Speech and written message: similarity and difference.
  • What makes a successful speaking sequence in the English language classroom?
Please use the "contact us" button to send your articles or questions.

A wiki about Web 2.0 resources for teachers

Posted by Tarak Brahmi
David Kapuler,Technology Integration Specialist from Greendale School District, U.S.A. has recently created a great wiki displaying an extremely useful list of Web 2.0 resources for use in the classroom or for delivering online lessons. The list includes audio, videoconferencing, bookmarking, file sharing, photo editing, survey, web quest, digital storytelling tools, and much more. It is worth pointing out that David gives the wiki members the opportunity to download the six volumes of the Digital Books (aka Blog Companions).
You are invited to have a look at the contents of the wiki. You can also become a member and start adding useful tools that you have found interesting.
To visit David's wiki, here is the link.
