ICTS BASED PEDAGOGICAL PORPOSAL STUDENT: CAMILO ANDRES VITERI. SUBJECT: ICTS. PROFESSOR: JOHNNY ROPERO.

1. DESCRIPTION.

This current proposal is designed around the use of ICTs as a tool of encouraging and empowering of the ESL learning. The main idea of the project is to encourage students to get interested in using technology as a tool to learn English. The tools used in this project will be the blog, the Wiki spaces and the video material found in YouTube. Thus, this project will mix the interesting subjects and areas of the students and the implementation of these technologies within the classroom.

Besides, this project intends to reinforce the new strategies of education. This project will help to understand the new dynamic of education in terms of information interaction and the new ways of learning brought by the digital age. Nowadays, it is well known that there are lots of ways to get to the knowledge without using a pencil but a click.

2. OBJECTIVES.

The objectives that will be described below include the ICTs and the ESL learning process being mixed into a general objective. 

General Objective: To create an information and communicative technology (ICT) tool that enables students from 701 at Prado Veraniego public school to enhance and empower their skills within the EFL process.

 

Specific Objectives: To measure the starting exposure of students from 701 class at PV school to multimedia tools.

To create a sort of virtual environment to enhance their use of ICTs instruments and by doing this catch their attention towards the EFL.

 

To make follow up activities in order to check their use of the tool previously created. To get students to post different material made by themselves in which they will use their English skills such videos, report-papers, etc.

To compile the features done so far by the students in order to make an on-line presentation of the final product at the end of the project.

To state how important it is to let students work on virtual environments where they can reach high self-esteem and confidence during the EFL process.

3. PEDAGOGCAL PROPOSAL.

The methodology intends to use the most useful components from the theories in chapter 2 such the correct uses of ICT and the “Communicative Approach”.

This schedule of activities were put together in order to achieve the theory, hence, its main steps towards the achievement of the goals within the ESL process such participation, autonomy, communication, etc. The main tool used for this project are the ICTs, the Blog and the different sources such videos, songs and worksheets that call students’ attention to the activities and the English learning.

Introduc tion and present ation.

1. Recogniz es the new tool as an opportuni ty to learn.

The teacher welcomes the students and gives them a brief introduction about the tool. He shows them the TICs presentation and tell them how to register on the web sites.

The students register on the web sites and get in touch with the new tools. They give their feed back about their perceptions.

The teacher grades the students’ participation in order to get the motivated and so he states that this participation will be as important as the previous activities within the class. The teacher counts the number of ideas given by the students and rates them in order to get a grade.

Concept ualizatio n.

1. Recogniz es his or her own role about the new tool.

The teacher gives them a series of possible task that can be interesting for them. The teacher also shows them different ICTs tools and web sites so they get different examples.

There are different discussions about what to do. Students brainstorm and decide what tool will finally work on. Students do a research about ITC tools and give ideas to the rest of the group. Students write a new so they can have material in order to record it in a video and them uploading it to the web site.

evaluates content created by the students.

4. JUSTIFICATION.

When doing a research project such this, one must think about the way it takes the students to a level of excitement and curiosity. It is well known that the context in which children live nowadays is plenty of technologies and tools which provides them with useful and meaningful sources and material for their processes at EFL. 701 students at Prado Veraniego are highly exposed to those technologies; this eases the process to the teacher and helps to encourage them in the use of English as a way of communication.

As a conclusion, this project will continue the goals already achieved during previous researches and will state the importance of using the ICTs in order to improve EFL.

5. EXPECTED RESULTS.

After posing the research project I intend to get students motivated towards the ESL learning and the correct use of ICTs. It will encourage them to search and find information on what they can do and how it could improve their own skills, how they can communicate and how they can participate with those technologies.
