Providing better visual stimuli through improved ‘boardwork’ in the language learning class


Canning-Wilson (2001) found that visuals positively affect learning strategies in language learning. Through projected visuals such as well-laid out text, illustrations, and pictures, students can possibly follow the train of thought of the teacher relatively easier than without the visuals. In this presentation, the discussion will be about what is ‘boardwork’, why is it necessary, and some tricks on using the board to provide better comprehensible input through better use of whiteboard in the language learning class.
