Gwangju-Jeonnam Chapter Presents: Redefining Homework: Finding Self-Study Solutions
** Free and open to all! **
Most students don’t like homework. “Homework” often suggests tedious busywork. Many students rush homework, focused on what they can do afterwards. Some teachers give rewards for “finishing” homework.
But what if homework became a reward unto itself?
Using self-study solutions, learners can become proactive in meeting their own goals. They can also become more aware of progress.
Language learning is a monumental task, with countless things to remember. The cycle of learning and forgetting can be extremely demotivating. Self-study helps to strengthen memory, but it can feel boring, lonely, and frustrating. What can be done about this?
This presentation will focus on finding the right self-study solutions to motivate learners. Spaced repetition and human memory will be discussed. Participants will discuss their own experiences, and compare different self-study tools including Memrise, Quizlet, and Anki. Other self-study tools and unique ideas, such as LCD writing boards, will also be explored.
