November 29 – December 5
1) Creating material
We often need to create or adapting material to fit our students’ needs. This week, we have some possibilities for creating interesting material.
Create an easy exercise with Hot Potatoes. Download the program at http://hotpot.uvic.ca, then use the Hot Potatoes How-To for instructions.
Look at some other exercise creators at
* Tools for educators – word search, bingo, crossword puzzles, and board games
* Personal Educational Press – flash cards, bingo games, matching, multiple choice exercises to print out
* Easy Test Maker (paper tests)
2) Nicenet discussions
a) What type of information would be useful to adapt for your students? What types of exercises would be good?
b) What websites did you try? What did you like/dislike and why?
Discuss your ideas with your classmates on Nicenet in the Week 9 Discussion Forum.
