What drives motivation? Great for a Business English class…
One of the great mysteries of the Internet: how on earth do people like Larry Ferlazzo find time to find so much amazing stuff?
I barely have time to read my RSS feed for Larry's Websites of the Day, so that when I eventually get round to it, my Bloglines account is overflowing with good stuff. Among what's been accumulating there:
- An online game on How Wasteful Are You?, which would make a great starting point for learners to devise their own quiz (for which a Google Docs form is fantastic, apart from anything else as it can be embedded on a blog)
- A Newsweek slideshow of 100 Places To Remember Before They All Disappear, which might make the basis of a great webquest, among other things
- Places you can find other schools for online projects, which (provided you have a concrete project in mind) is always great for motivating young learners to use their English
- A PBS Newshour program on What Drives Motivation in the Modern Workplace? that would be great with a Business English class (or one of any adults). You might try getting them to predict what will be said, and see how much they got "right".
Who needs Google when we've got Larry…?!
