ELTchat live

This Wed. there was a lively ELTchat about “Dogme” teaching. Very interesting and I decided ahead of time to just sit back and “listen/watch”. I already had a nice page for doing this – something I’m using to introduce the new teachers in my online teaching to the power of twitter. It’s a handy page, also with info. about ELTchat and everyone is welcome to use it.

At the same time, I decided it might be great to record some of the chats “live”. See one excerpt above. Get the others here. Just a snippet but can be quite useable in teacher training.

Conclusions from the chat? This is my take away (and just my own).

Myth – Dogme takes a well trained, experienced teacher.
Myth – Dogme is a method.

Dogme is about emergent language, student centered teaching, low use of materials.
