Here Below you can check out the feedback (for one of our units) of one of the 16.000 students that last year took an online course with ITTT!
In this unit I have learned about various teaching aids and equipment and the ways that they can be used. Several of these are OHPs (overhead projectors), chalk board or white board, a computer, VHS/DVDs/video clips, CDs/cassettes/podcasts/mp3s, visual aids (pictures), dictionaries, video cameras/smartphones, course books, resource books, online media/dictionaries/student resources, worksheets, etc.
All of these items are useful for certain teaching methods. For example, worksheets are great for the study phase of a lesson and can provide good feedback to students by reviewing the worksheet after the students have completed it. Overhead projectors are useful because as a teacher you spend a lot less time with your back to the students and also it helps focus a students attention. OHPs can be used to reveal developments with grammar and vocabulary. Dictionaries are useful for students because they can look up the pronunciation, definition and usage of a word, as well and producing language. English to English dictionaries are much more preferred in class than a dictionary that translates from the students' native language. Resource book are useful in supplementing, replacing or adapting course work, and most schools have a few of them available.
It is important to understand all of the different teaching aids and equipment available because it can help to create a more interesting and varied learning experience for students, as well as allow a teacher to more easily adapt to the resources a school may have, whether there are many or only a few teaching aids available.
