Stationwork: teacher launches group activities

Uploaded by Julie Alexander, Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis (France)


The teacher is launching stationwork with this mixed level class of primary EFL learners. The IWB shows three coloured boxes with instructions for each of three groups, who will work in different parts of the classroom on different activities. All groups will rotate around all activities in this session, and the teacher uses the board to organise this work. The teacher opens the website which the learners will use on their individual class computer with headphones and explains how they will work.

Teacher comment

Well maybe to show that it's possible to use the interactive white board to show the task to all the class at the same time.  And then avoid repeating each time we change the work.
[...] Yes, and as they are all one, on one computer - then you can show it once, what to do, for all of them.  Because even those who are staying with me at the IWB, then they are going to the computer, eventually.  So I like to show them on the IWB what to do...
[...] Because when they are there, they always have questions. 
[...] I cannot go there and re-explain everything one more time.


Learner comments

The learners describe their classroom: "for equipment, we have the IWB, computers, headsets, mice, and that, and the adapters."
