TeFl Domain 4: 4.2 Connect to students’ lives and aspirations

4.2 is very complex. You are looking at what students bring through the door and how to capitalise on it in the classroom and allow them to benefit from it as learners. You are looking at intercultural understanding which means you have to pay attention to multilingualism, bilingualism and students who come to you as second language learners in English. Furthermore, it also requires you to connect learning to real life, to the real world and to the futures of your students as well as current technology. You need to allow them to hope and dream and then find the knowledge gaps so you can give them a chance of succeeding with all of this. All this follows on from 4.1 where you build on their understandings and connect them to the real world. Nevertheless, I am glad I made this slide presentation since the only way I can address 4.2 seriously and competently is by focussing on one bit at a time. This way I shall increase my awareness level and address my own learning gaps in how to manage this aspirational , intercultural and ICT sub domain. Good job I like a challenge.
