<This was a supplementary class on irregular time>
Course: Japanese Basic Composition 2
Used app: Video Conference on DingTalk. BBS was supplementary used to show PNG images that was the instruction for procedures of 1-minute speech and QA session.
Numbers of Students: 28
– At the beginning:
– Self-claiming attendance by the means of input “Shusseki” onto BBS: 28
– Attendance check using the video conference monitor: 26
– At the end by sending photos of composition: 25
Each student made his/her one minute speech about tourism in a particular prefecture in Japan. This was done in the order of student ID number.
There were question and answer times for each speech when it was ended. A student to ask a question was assigned randomly so that other students would try to listen to the speech. It is important to know how to ask a question in a conference where many people are gathering. So the teacher instructed the students at the beginning of the class about how to make a question in a conference.
The teacher controlled the progression of speeches. In order to give every students chances to speak, the time that one student could spend was getting shorter and shorter towards the end.
Issues and Problems:
Most of students wouldn’t like to listen to other students’ speech. So I assigned a questioner randomly. All the students just made the same question that I prepared for them as examples. Some questioning students didn’t know what prefecture was talked. I should have recorded such an incident and reduced his/her score for grading.
