you could also use Zoom polls to get Ls to vote on options in the story
Phil Longwell
49:40
Yes, you could, Laura.
Vicky Saumell
50:10
But you would lose the speaking element
Laura McWilliams
51:12
true… hard to justify just one volunteer speaking in big classes though
Vicky Saumell
51:37
yes, I would use breakout rooms with very small groups
Laura McWilliams
52:18
yes once they get the idea of how it works that would definitely be the best way
Phil Longwell
52:50
I've often wanted to escape a family function ;-)

Raquel Ribeiro
55:36
I like the briefing idea + the expressions they might need to use
Michael Birch
01:01:44
Disappearing green sticks. That could be itself in itself... magic wands
Michael Birch
01:02:29
*useful
Laura McWilliams
01:05:07
The idea of different characters with different "missions" reminds me of board games where different characters have different "win conditions" e.g. Chaos in the Old World
Michael Birch
01:06:05
That was me! My parrot!
Angelina Igorevna
01:06:27
I don't know which one I like more... I love them both
Anna B.
01:08:35
It's definitely a great way of keeping students engaged and gives them a reason to use the language
Michael Birch
01:10:48

how can we assess the students during this activity?

01:13:15
That's briliant. Thank You so much
Raquel Ribeiro
01:13:21
We can add it to the LTSIG blog post
Raquel Ribeiro
01:13:33
The presentation
Anna B.
01:14:16
Maybe some of the activities can be scaffolded so that they can be used in mixed ability classes
Michael Birch
01:14:22
James Egerton's game Princess in the Tower is quite suitable for lower levels
Phil Longwell
01:14:35
Slides available here: https://www.slideshare.net/bcgstanley
Monika Kisala
01:14:41
But you can use original RPG and use mainly mother tongue + English, especially with kids, they can meet NPC that can only speak English
Laura McWilliams
01:14:41
Have you ever tried using "Choose Your Own Adventure" books with learners? They have a very similar concept but apply it to another skill (reading).
Phil Longwell
01:15:23
I still have some of those, Laura. I remember David Dodgson writing about them, too.
Vance Stevens
01:15:27
web cam?
Laura McWilliams
01:16:51
We did one as a whole class week course and it was a lot of fun
Laura McWilliams
01:17:03
(lots of activities built around it)
Laura McWilliams
01:17:57
What brand of readers was that Vicky? I missed the name!
Michael Birch
01:18:19
Even simple alternation of student contribution would add interactivity to Choose your own adventure
Vance Stevens
