Übersicht über den Lehrgang

Beschreibung

Der Lehrgang enthält das Vokabular von Band 1 bis Band 3 des Lehrmittels "Open World (2018)". Die Übungen entsprechen genau den Units, wie sie in den Lehrbüchern abgedruckt sind, von "Band 1 - Unit 1 - 01 Keywords" bis zu "Band 3 - Unit 7 - 03 Travel blog". Units mit weniger als 10 Wörtern wurden zu einer Übung zusammengefasst. Der Lehrgang eignet sich somit für das Voci-Training ergänzend zum Einsatz des Lehrmittels "Open World (2018)" im Unterricht.

Die Wörter werden auf Englisch vorgesprochen und müssen auf Englisch eingetippt werden. Die deutsche Übersetzung kann in den Spielen "Wörter strukturieren" und "Richtig schreiben" als Titel über dem Wort eingeblendet werden. Die Wortart wird zusätzlich neben der Übersetzung angezeigt. Und schliesslich können sich die Lernenden alle Beispielsätze ebenso vorsprechen lassen.

Anweisungen

Sie können den Lehrgang im "Geführten Training", im "Freien Training" oder als "Sofort-Modul" einsetzen.

Um den Lehrgang im "Geführten Training" zu verwenden, weisen Sie ihn den Schüler-Benutzern im Coach als Lernplan zu. Orthograph führt die Schüler-Benutzer dann in ihrem eigenen Tempo von Übung zu Übung und repetiert gelernte Übungen automatisch nach einem Monat. Dieser Einsatz eignet sich, wenn die Lernenden kontinuierlich mit dem Lehrgang arbeiten sollen oder wenn sie Wortschatz aufarbeiten müssen.

Zur Verwendung des Wortschatzes im "Freien Training" müssen Sie den Schüler-Benutzern das "Freie Training" in den Einstellungen im Coach frei schalten. Anschliessend können (und müssen) die Lernenden selber gezielt einzelne Übungen aus dem Lehrgang in Orthograph auswählen und üben. Sie können Übungen beliebig oft wiederholen. Dieser Einsatz eignet sich, wenn die Lernenden in Eigenverantwortung den Wortschatz erlernen sollen.

Schliesslich können Sie den Schüler-Benutzern im Coach einzelne Übungen aus dem Lehrgang als "Sofort-Modul" zuordnen. Das Sofort-Modul hat Vorrang vor allen anderen Inhalten und muss von den Lernenden in Orthograph bearbeitet werden, bevor sie an anderen Inhalten arbeiten können. Der Einsatz als Sofort-Modul ist angezeigt, wenn Sie sicher stellen wollen, dass alle Lernenden zur gleichen Zeit die gleiche Übung bearbeiten, z.B. zu einer Unit, welche in Kürze geprüft wird.
