Presentation Abstract Summary (Preview)
  Malu Sciamarelli will explore how teachers can offer activities that:  provide role modelling of playfulness; support and value creative thinking; lead to active engagement; and help develop the critical skills for children to learn a language through play.
  Playfulness can help foster a desire for lifelong learning in our students as well as an ability to adapt throughout their lives. It provides the base for our students to be able to explore better opportunities to create and develop their own future in a global age. Malu is from Brazil.

概要 (Preview)ブラジル出身マルー・シャマレリによるこのたびの講演では、遊び心のあるアクティビティの数々をご紹介します。指導者はどのようにして、子供たちの創造的思考をサポートし、積極的に参加させるか、そして遊びを通して言語を学ぶ中で重要なスキルを伸ばすことができるかをお伝え致します。
遊び心」というのは、学習者が生涯にわたって学習意欲を持ち続ける上で、非常に重要な要素のひとつであると言えます。このグローバル化が進む世界においてはなおさら、学習者がその先にある扉を開き、可能性を広げていくために、土台作りが大切なのです。

Presentation Abstract (概要):
"Creativity and Playfulness in the Language Classroom"
  Children are driven by curiosity and playfulness. An approach based on children's natural way of interacting with their world, a playfulness approach, would go a long way to creating a more inclusive learning environment and more effective schools in general. However, a playfulness approach should not just be limited to school, but should be encouraged throughout a learner's lifetime. This approach contributes to the development of problem solving, creativity, perspective taking, and the development of language.
  This playfulness approach, with an emphasis on experimentation and risk-taking, inventing and failing as well as succeeding, develops our ability to learn with the skills that will allow us to build the sustainable cities, environments and societies of the future. Such an approach also encourages, accepts, and acknowledges not only the skills of the individual, but also how people share these skills with each other through the exchanging and joining of ideas and experiences.
In this workshop, we will explore how teachers can offer activities that:  provide role modelling of playfulness; support and value creative thinking; lead to active engagement; and help develop the critical skills for children to learn a language through play.
  Playfulness can help foster a desire for lifelong learning in our students as well as an ability to adapt throughout their lives. It provides the base for our students to be able to explore better opportunities to create and develop their own future in a global age.
   (This workshop is based on my chapter "Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation" in the new British Council's publication Integrating global issues in the creative English language classroom: With reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, London, 2017)

Presenter’s Bio Data (略歴)
  Malu Sciamarelli has been an active member of the ELT community for 24 years, working as a teacher and freelance teacher trainer in Brazil.  She has also been an active member of C Group, a group of teachers dedicated to increasing the amount of creativity found in language classrooms throughout the world.  She has been a committee member of the C Group for 2 years, and has published book chapters on 'Teaching Children with Mascot-Inspired Projects' (British Council 2015) and the importance of creativity and play in language learning (British Council 2017). Her articles on creative writing and using literature in the language classroom in several journals have helped generate a higher level of discourse around creativity in the language classroom within the ELT community. In addition, her work guest editing an issue of the ETAS Journal on 'Creative Writing and ELT: Intersecting borders in creative writing and English language teaching' (2014), offered a chance for new authors around the world to engage and broaden the conversation on the role creativity plays in the language classroom.
  Malu Sciamarelli is also a part of a new movement in ELT, one which uses blogs and other media to quickly disseminate new ideas to the ELT community.  Her posts on creativity and literature on Teaching Village, iTDi, the IATEFL Teacher Development Interest Group (TD SIG) Blog, and her own blog show her dedication to constantly engage with the community in real time and help shape the flow of ideas around the use of literature and creativity within the language classroom.

Presentation Title:  Smart Teaching / Successful Learning 
        効率のよい指導・効果的な学習

-------------------------------

Presentation AbstractIn these workshops, we will discuss ways to keep students attentive and engaged. Workshop 1 will focus on four key factors for effective learning: emotion (How do I feel?), interest (Am I interested?), perceived importance (Is this important to me?), and self-efficacy (Can I do this?). In workshop 2 we will discuss ways to keep students engaged and motivated to learn. We will also look at what we can do to influence their attitude and approach to challenges, effort, failures and lifelong learning. Jason will also share insights from recent research on how brains work and how we learn.


概要: 今回のワークショップではどのようにして学習者の興味を引き続けるかという問題を取り上げますワークショップ1では効果的な学習に欠かせない4つの要素に焦点を当てますその4つとは感情(どう感じているか)関心(関心を持っているか)重要性の認知(重要性を感じているか)自己効力感 (自信があるかどうか)ですワークショップ2では、学習者の意欲を喚起し続ける方法について注目します学習者が挑戦し努力し失敗してさらに生涯学び続けようとする過程に前向きな影響力を持つために指導者できることは何かを考えますジェイソン・ゴールド氏は最近の脳の働きと学習に関する研究を通して行った洞察を今回のワークショップの参加者にも伝えます
