Digital Tools - Lesson Plan 2 (Speaking)

This is my second lesson plan for my General English students.

Adult Business English Learners at Pre-Intermediate level 

The task is going to be set as homework so it is not going to take any lesson time.

By the end of this task, students will have
  • practised their speaking skills by recording their holiday presentations
  • applied the holiday vocabulary they have learnt at the lesson 
  • practised their listening skills by listening to their peers' presentations
  • enhanced their digital literacy by learning how to record and by recording themselves

The teacher has to create a talkgroup on Voxopop before the lesson starts and invite the students to join the talkgroup. 
At the lesson students learn about presentation skills and listen to some interviews. Then they are given information about different companies and need to prepare a presentation for prospective students explaining why it is good to work for the company that they present. They present in front of the class and get feedback from peers and the teacher.
At home students need to prepare a similar presentation about the company they work for and record it on Voxopop. Then they are asked to listen to the presentations of their peers and leave recorded comments. The teacher also needs to leave recorded comments for the students. 

Students might have difficulties using Voxopop (prepare a screencast with every step explained and demonstrated and post it on the group's Facebook wall right after the lesson).
