15th EFL / ESL /ELL blog carnival

The fifteenth edition of the EFL/ESL/EEL carnival is now published, and I'm very happy to be a part of it.

The carnival is a great way of providing a snapshot of what people have been blogging about recently in the world of ELT. This time round the topics are:
    • Thought-provoking pedagogy
      • Teaching effectively with technology
      • Presentation and social media advice
      • Issues to ponder

      There's so much good stuff here, it will take you a while to digest it - that's the other thing about the carnival : it's a great way of getting to know bloggers that you may not have come across before. 

      Of all the posts in the carnival, I particularly enjoyed Ozge Karaoglu's How to survive in 2010 - digitally and Marisa Constantinides' Don't Forget the Pedagogy. Karenee Sylvester's Powerpointing Me suggests a great way of using this technology well with a new class and Jeremy Harmer's On being nervous is a great read for anyone who's ever presented or is thinking about presenting at a conference. I also loved looking at Eva Büyüksimkeşyan's students' Glogster projects - fantastic work! I'd also like to take Vicky Saumell's 40 Things you can do with a data projector in an EFL/ESL lesson and expand upon it - a great resource to have .

      And the best thing is...I haven't finished reading them all yet, so I'm sure this list of favourites will grow.


      1. Hi Graham

        You just got mentioned on the first interview in my History of TEFL Blogging series. Do you fancy being interviewed too?



      2. Hi Alex - Yes, I just read the interview with EFL Geek - I'd be more than happy to be interviewed
