Oral language

   Oral language

Oral literacy is a very important, and often overlooked, aspect of our literacy programmes.  We spend a huge amount of our communicating time in speaking, and yet it is writing and reading that take up most of our literacy time component in many classrooms.  Perhaps this is because we find classroom management of oral sessions so much more challenging.

The e-Learning tools available to us in today's classrooms should make it possible to address this balance, and provide interesting learning for students while still maintaining a good measure of classroom control.

Students who struggle with writing and reading, can often find these new tools very engaging, as for the first time they can manage to communicate their ideas without the pressure to encode the message in readable form.
