In this unit we learn about the various teaching equipment that teachers can use. Boards: This is the most common equipment and most of classrooms have one. It can be used for writing, drawing, sticking things on. Boards hold the student attention and that is why they are useful. Interactive boards: Modern types of board, connected to a computer with a mouse pen. Very creative and interesting lessons can be made using interactive boards. Overhead projectors: Useful in showing prepared overhead transparencies as an alternative to the board. Visual aids: Most common are pictures,photos and real objects. They are often used to explain a meaning more quickly and for language drilling. Worksheets and work cards: These can be used in many ways to assist in the learning, role-play cards, used to adapt published materials, used for reading grammar, for presenting new vocabulary. Cassette recorder: Used to record authentic materials and student communication. CD Player: These are replacing the cassette player and are used as a main audio source. Videos and DVDs: Used for presenting information, giving background to a topic. Video camera: Used for recording students during an activity after which this material can be played to the students for analysis and discussion.
