SPLASH!

10.30 am -  2.00 pm

Young Learners

Splash is a story about three friends who live in the ocean: Chloe the fish, Sarah the seahorse and Oliver the octopus. Every day they go swimming, searching for adventures and cleaning up the rubbish that people dump into the sea. There is one thing they are really cautious about: sharks. As everybody knows, sharks eat fish. What will happen when they meet Harry the shark? Will they be able to persuade him into eating something different? Will he help them to clean up the ocean? Let’s dive in and find out what happens!

CRAZY JEKYLL & HYDE

8.45 am – 4.00 pm

Pre-intermediate to Intermediate Students

Some scientists are doing research under the surveillance of a very demanding General Director who insists on having immediate results. Dr. Jekyll has been working hard on a Dual Personality formula that will enable a person to become someone completely different. Even though the experiment is almost finished, the results are not exactly what he has expected. Dr. Smith, the other scientist under surveillance, will attempt to steal Dr. Jekyll’s formula and pretend it’s hers.This story describes a society where everyone pretends to be someone else for fear of not being accepted, or loved. Will they be able to defend who they really are and face the consequences? Let’s enjoy a hilarious comedy about the importance of being oneself.

SHAKESPEARE IN TROUBLE

18.00 pm

Upper Intermediate to Advanced Students

A group of friends meet for drama class and an unexpected series of stories unfold. Love, hate, ambition, loyalty and death will be some of the topics they will develop. Little by little, Shakespeare’s plays will be brought to life by these students, who  will gain a deeper and lasting understanding of the characters’ feelings, some of which are surprisingly not so far away from their own. Shakespeare’s works will hereby become the trigger to reflect upon these topics.  Interwoven with some of the most famous Shakespearean texts, this modern story aims at awakening the students’ comprehension of their own attitudes and feelings as well as of those around them.

Booking in advance is a must!

Please contact us to sign up for this fantastic opportunity to see some fantastic presenters in action!

We have selected two workshops and a plenary, all on the topic of material design.  Here are the details:

Creating interesting language exercises, and making language exercises interesting

(By Penny Ur)

In this workshop we shall look at some grammar, vocabulary and spelling exercises, discuss what makes them more – or less – interesting, and explore some strategies that can add interest to the boring ones. The aim is to equip participants with some ‘practical principles’ for creating and maintaining interest in essentially form-focused procedures.

Writing your own materials: plusses and pitfalls

(Workshop by Lucy Palmer)

Are you looking to supplement the course book, prepare an ESP class or take the first steps towards getting published? Then this workshop is for you. We will be taking a hands-on approach, discussing the strengths and weaknesses of a range of teaching resources, making improvements to them and exploring the theoretical issues underpinning our decisions.

Supporting the teacher as innovative learning designer

(Plenary by Diana Laurilliard)

Teachers who wish to update and upgrade their teaching by using learning technologies have some difficult issues to confront, and we have to recognise that teachers deserve far more help with discovering how best to exploit digital methods. The presentation starts from the premise that only teachers have the knowledge, experience, and appropriate context for developing the new forms of pedagogy made possible by digital learning methods. Effective use of learning technology will not come about unless teachers are at the helm of innovation.

In the context of TEFL, digital technologies can enhance the learning experience in so many different ways – through analytical tools, online communication through text, audio and video, multimedia presentations, digital games, virtual reality environments… almost every type of digital technology can enhance some aspect of language learning. There is so much language teachers could do with technology-based innovation. But this is a huge demand on teachers: to discover how to use new types of technology, which are changing continually, alongside delivering more and better teaching also demanded of them. The presentation will argue that we need to pay more attention to supporting the teacher as innovator, and will propose the kinds of tools and resources that are needed to help the language teaching community develop this new specialised knowledge and skill base.

About Diana Laurillard: Diana Laurillard is Professor of Learning with Digital Technologies at the London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education, leading externally-funded research projects on: i) developing a learning design supportenvironment for teachers, and ii) developing software interventions for learners with low numeracy and dyscalculia. This work relates closely to her roles as Pro Director for Open Mode learning, and as afounder member of the Planning Board for the cross-institutional Centre for Educational Neuroscience (IOE, Birkbeck, UCL). Previous roles include: Head of the e-Learning Strategy Unit at the Department for Education and Skills,where she developed the first cross-sector e-learning strategy on; Harnessing Technology; Pro-Vice-Chancellor for learning technologies and teaching at The Open University, Visiting Committee on IT at Harvard University and previously worked on the Technology Enhanced Language Learning programme. Current roles include: Royal Society Working Group on Educational Neuroscience, Boards of theObservatory for Borderless HE, Supervisory Council for Fern Universitaet in Hagen, Governing Board ofthe UNESCO Institute for IT in Education. She has given many international keynote addresses, published in many academic journals and books, andher book Rethinking University Teaching: A conversational framework for the effective use of learningtechnologies (2002, RoutledgeFalmer) is one of the most widely cited in the field.

A dream achieved: A Scholarship in the US

Remember when you were a kid and someone asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up? I would always reply with a verb: Travel. Now, is that a profession? Unfortunately not. Eventually, I got into high school and there would always be a class where they would ask how or where you saw yourself in 5 or 10 years. I couldn’t figure out a possible answer. I knew I wanted to travel; by that time I also knew English was going to be essential to achieve my dream but I didn’t have an idea of what I wanted to be or how to fulfill my expectations. Finally, I made up my mind and decided to get my degree in teaching English as a second language, just because I liked the language.

As time went by, I actually discovered I liked teaching but I needed something else. I don’t remember when I started looking for scholarships but I’m sure my motivation was my consuming desire for travelling. I remember coming across the Fulbright scholarship years before I decided to apply for it. In the meantime I started working and got my degree. Years went by and I was not making any progress in achieving my dream or at least I thought not. My working hours increased, I became a member of APIBB committee and attended every possible course or workshop related to my field.

When I was at FAAPI 2008, which was held in Santiago del Estero, I came across a handout inviting people to apply for the Fulbright scholarship. I remembered I had already heard about it and did some research on it. It would certainly meet all my expectations. It was great, almost too perfect. I didn’t apply. Why?? I don’t know. Lack of confidence, fear, procrastination, you name it. The clock was ticking, the age limit was 29, but apparently I felt very young at 26.

Another year went by and the organization of FAAPI’s annual conference fell into APIBB’s hands. Fortune made me the person in charge of picking up the president of Fulbright Argentina and her guest speaker for dinner. Guess who told me I had the right profile for the scholarship? Yes! The very president of Fulbright Argentina (was that a sign, or what?!) So, as soon as the congress finished, which was exhausting by the way, I filled in all the paperwork so confidently that I actually never thought a “No” could be a reply. Of course, I was so full with excitement I told everybody about it. I made it to the interview in Buenos Aires and I was so sure that spot was mine. Well, the next day I got a kind e-mail saying that I had NOT been chosen. Apparently, people can say “No” no matter how confident you are. It was disheartening. I cried the whole day. It was helpful to have  a wedding reception with an open bar that night ;)

The next year arrived, together with my last chance to apply! I must say, I wasn’t sure about doing it, I was afraid of my possible reaction if I didn’t get the scholarship. I applied anyway but with a more “I don’t care attitude”. Nobody knew this time. I got the interview, passed it, started filling out forms, took the TOEFL exam… all with my lips sealed. I was so scared of waking up from my dream. Finally, I got the e-mail confirming I was going to spend a scholar year in a college in the US.

Yesterday, after spending seven months in a college near Boston, I got my departure form and I must say it has been: AWESOME! If I have to regret something is the fact I didn’t apply when I first heard about the scholarship. I know many people say: “Things come in the right time”, but although in some cases I agree with the idea that “it’s never too late” in this case I would say that it’s never too soon.

Thank you for coming to the 2012 Bookshow!

On behalf of APIBB, we would like to thank everybody for coming to this year’s bookshow and help in making it such a success. We hope you enjoyed it too! See you next year!

Listado de Profesores Particulares:

Estimados socios:
A fin de facilitar el acceso del público en general a la información necesaria para poder elegir un profesor, APIBB incorporó en el año 2011 una nueva sección a su página web donde se puede consultar un listado de socios que dictan clases en forma particular (el listado no incluye socios dueños de institutos), con datos tales como niveles, tipo de exámenes y zona de residencia. Dicho listado NO contiene dirección, número de teléfono o correo electrónico por razones de seguridad. En su lugar, una vez que la persona elige uno o más profesores de su conveniencia, deberá llamar a APIBB para obtener datos de contacto.
Durante el ciclo lectivo 2011 tuvimos gran éxito con profesores que tuvieron que llamarnos para pedirnos que no diéramos sus datos más ya que habían cubierto todos sus horarios disponibles. Nuestro listado recibió alrededor de 1000 consultas entre marzo y abril, ayudado por el aviso clasificado que publicamos en La Nueva Provincia. Por esta razón, seguimos manteniendo la sección y renovamos nuestra invitación a formar parte de ella. Aquellos profesores que ya nos han enviado sus datos permanecerán en el listado a menos que soliciten sean dados de baja.
Para formar parte de este listado que está abierto los 365 días del año en forma gratuita, les rogamos por favor completar el siguiente formulario. Si ya son parte del listado y desean realizar cambios a los datos enviados, o ser más específicos en cuanto a las clases que ofrecen, les rogamos también lo completen.

2012 SIGs: Get Ready to Plan!

Once again, we need to start planning! As we did last year,  we invite you to bring your books and materials you are going to work with during the year, “diseños curiculares” and everything you consider useful for your planning (samples given at your school, other plans from previous years, etc).  We have also collected the Diseños Curricularas in this post for you to download and have at hand in case you need them.

No matter whether you are working at a public or private school, together we will try to solve the difficult task of planning according to the different requirements at schools.
