This reflection was contributed as a submission for a 2 Star Badge in The Digital Teacher (Exploring)

Give a brief description of your work context and responsibilities, e.g. your teaching background, experience, type of organisation (e.g. FE college, ACL), subject/curriculum you teach/lead, your learners (skills level, any particular inclusion needs, age range of group, size of group)

I am an ESOL teacher at ACL. I teach four classes a pre-entry, intermediate, advanced and mixed level. All classes are currently online and run for about 2 hours either once or twice a week. I have about 10 learners in each class with a mix of age groups and ethnicities.

How will you adapt activities in your teaching context to put into practice learning from the module?

In the past I have only ever used quizzes and polls to gauge understanding at the actual time of learning/instruction. In one of these modules the suggestion is made to implement at the beginning of new class/new learning. I think this is a great idea as it will start the class off ensuring that everyone is actively participating (I seem to get the same learners answering all the time)... more
