    Default Incorporating technology into teaching 'Speaking'.

    Hi there,

    I hope this thread will get enough feedback from those interested in teaching. I was wondering what form of 'technology', or 'technology-based activities' teachers use in 'speaking' lessons.

    I realise all skills are integrated but I'm interested to know what specific forms of technology are used by teachers round the world, in speaking classes.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Do you record speaking lessons?

    All classes are recorded by CCTV but there's no spacial recording of the class events. Is that used for a post-class analysis or for giving learners a post-activity feedback?


    (Plus, has anybody ever devised any Skype-based activity in teaching Speaking?)

    Either, and on the subject of feedback, I found that recording comments about writing goes well.

    Sounds interesting. Thanks, dear Tdol!


    (And I hope teachers seeing this post will kindly share the experiences they've had in their speaking lessons.)

    It's also a lot easier for the teacher to give detailed information and practises another skill.
