LANGUAGE LEARNING INNOVATIONS WITH A BALLOT TOOL

Recently we have made an experiment with a new technological tool – with a ballot tool. This device enables to practise and test different phenomena of face-to-face teaching without the necessity of students´ connection to the Internet. The tool has met with a lively response because young people usually welcome all novelties and every stimulant of teaching with enthusiasm. By means of this device the teacher can immediately discover in which areas the students make most mistakes. At the same time, s/he can perfect his/ her explanation and make the linguistic material more clear.
After the explanation of the given issues the practice follows and it is focused on the teaching material. For some time, the students can work with individual questions separately, every student at his/ her own pace, and they can come back to single questions or tasks at the given time. At some other time, the questions are given at the same moment to all students, all of them answer the same question at the same time, they have got an equal time for their answers and all of them proceed to the next question at the same time again. An advantage for the teacher is that the device can serve also as an examination tool without being connected to the Internet. This can to a large extent exclude any possibility of undesirable group work or copying.
