The personal learning network for educators
This week Jane Curry will Elluminate you with ideas on how to use Facebook with ESL youth. There are so many ways of collaborating on FB with a group of students, teachers, volunteers and social workers and other friends. Photography, discussions, posts, chatting, links to wallwisher, youtube, events and that's not all!! Collaborative teaching and learning, ....we are all learning.
Jane Curry is an ESL teacher at Swinburne TAFE (public vocational education) in Melbourne, Australia & is working with Migrant refugee youth. Jane developed an interest in media and literacy when working in remote bilingual aboriginal schools in the NT in both primary and adult edn. She is now transferring those skills and ideas for teaching and learning in a collaborative way to her youth class using Facebook, Edublogs and online Web2 tools. The Youth Program also have support from Foundation House and CMY with a focus on employment skills and work experience.
