Moodle for the English Classroom - Basic level

HI! It's pretty difficult to get pupils who reach 10th grade with hardly any basic English motivated to learn English. We need to find lots of ways to try to get them to be exposed to the language, and "get" something out of our effort, don't we? Books? Some don't always (often) care to have them in class. Worksheets? Give them one today and tell them to bring it tomorrow, too, and wait for the best... Some will forget those worksheets... somewhere. Notebooks? Oh, well... Some will have them in class, and some won't...But we try anyway, don't we? Cellphones most kids have in class, but not necessarily to study. And yet, I try getting pupils to access Moodle with their phones (though it's better wiith a PC or tablet), too. I use Moodle (as we have it at school), and since it can be accessed by means of that phone kids never, but never ever, forget to bring to class, there is a chance that it may motivate some pupils. In class I use the projector, but show pupils how to access the contents. Moodle enables you to put everything (Google tools included) in one place that pupils, provided they want to, can access easily. Yes: the key is "provided they want to", but it's worth giving it a try, too. Some pupils will benefit, and I at least feel that I have tried one more thing. Following is an example (Ah, sorry but this year there doesn't seem to be a chance to open the Third How to use Moodle in the English Classroom workshop. Last year 45 teachers from all over Israel finished the online course successfully, and roughly the same number did the same the year before. Well, there is no money to provide funding, and no support whatsoever. That's life. I hope those colleagues who took the course use Moodle, but I don't know)
שימוש בסביבת למידה וירטואלית בקוגל. לאחרונה מספר מורים הצטרפו לניסיון לשלב הוראה באמצעות סביבת למידה מוודל יחד עם הוראה בכיתה. אני מנסה את זה בהצלחה כזו או אחרת בכיתות שונות וברמות שונות (אנגלית 3, 3-4, 4, 5 יחידות לימוד וגם ספרדית) . יש מי שהשילוב מדבר אליהם ויש מי שלא, אבל כוון שהעולם הדיגיטלי כאן, אי אפשר להתעלם ממנו וצריך לנסות גם להשתמש בו, וללמד בכלים שלו. סביבת למידה מוודל היא עוד אמצעי ללמד מיומנויות של המאה ה-21 (ויש הרבה הגדרות לזה).להלן דוגמה של שימוש בסביבה בקוגל עם תלמידים הלומדים בכיתה יוד ברמה של שאלון א באנגלית
