SKA 2015: Eddy Moran's IT Workshops

Space is limited to 24 in the computer lab (2 on a computer). It's first come, first serve.

    Please choose the workshop you'd like to attend: Friday, Workshop A...Mashups: Combining Web 2.0 technologies to produce interactive language learning activities (teens/adults: all English levels) This workshop will show participants freely available Web 2.0 technologies that can be combined in web pages called “mashups”. The workshop will begin with an explanation of what Web 2.0 is and then move on to materials authoring. The specific resources used will be selected from Rich Internet Applications (http://clear.msu.edu/clear/resources/rich-internet-applications/). Two RIA tools will be demonstrated and practiced: audio dropbox and mashups. Youtube videos will also be embedded in the mashup. Participants will create their own materials using these resources and this will be followed by discussion of the strengths and limitations of these technologies for language teaching. Friday, Workshop B...Using an Online Comic Generator (teens/adults: all English levels) This workshop will demonstrate the use of an online comic generator (http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/) and discuss ideas for the use of short comic strips in the teaching and learning of English with particular attention to adolescent learners. Participants will learn how to produce their own comics while discussion will focus on task and materials design. No technical expertise is necessary.​ Eddy has been teaching for more than 30 years (in Japan, Taiwan, Dubai and the UK) in most of the contexts EFL teachers encounter including general English in language schools, ESP in companies and government training centres, and EAP in universities. He has an MA in Media Technology for Teaching English as a Foreign Language and a PhD in CALL (both from Newcastle University). Currently, Eddy is a lecturer in TESOL at the School of Education in Stirling University specialising in CALL, SLA, and Methodology. edward.moran@stir.ac.uk http://www.stir.ac.uk/education/staff-directory/academic/edward-moran/
