skills, get good job and above all get good grades. As for the teachers and instructors of this course, there are ample of applications available, which will help them communicate with their students more effectively. Here is a list of some of the best and most helpful applications:
This is a micro course developer, teachers can create up to 9 precise & short, 3 minute courses. Many people do not have time to go through long online courses due to lack of time. This application will prove very helpful in providing extra learning. Teachers can add up additional material on request of the students as well.
This helpful tool enables users to take notes, draw figures, insert clippings, pictures and record audio clips. All the data can then be transferred to any other file storing medium. The best part about this app is that it will let you type notes along with drawing. It is equally beneficial for both teachers and students. Teachers may use them to record presentations of students and later give them written reviews regarding their performance.
PlanBook Touch: A teacher has to shape up his schedule in the most neat and timely manner so that his followers are obliged to follow the same track. Now plan book touch provides teachers with the most user friendly task managing app. They may easily jot down their daily teaching lesson plans, adjust their schedules, track standards and attach links and files to their plans by using their drop box accounts. This app is strictly restricted to the use of teachers who may modify their TEFL class schedules easily through this mini planner.
Evernote: If you hate carrying heaps of notebooks with you here you have the “tags” available for you. This
wonderful app will let you organize your vast content into various notebooks.
It lets users create notes, store more PDF files and can take various snap shots of
their course material.’ Ever note upload’ is the email address of your
application that will enable teachers to share any clip or file with their
students using this forum. Any assignment related to their TEFL project can
also be mailed by students directly to their teachers under special tag names
already assigned for that purpose.
30hands: This application brings the element of fun in learning. The idea technically is an extension of online learning, where teachers and students can give detailed explanation of any picture or slides using tablet or smart phone. Basically TEFL requires a thorough understanding of English language that can be achieved by going
through the basics firstly. Teachers can give elaboration of various sentences and terms in English language which non-native speakers are not familiar with. One may record audio for individual slides as well. Videos shared via 30 hands can be referred to as foreign language “spoken” flash cards.
With times changing fast, one should learn to adapt to new methods and techniques, there is of course no harm in doing so, just give it a try!
