How To Use Blogging : 

How To Use Blogging Divide the class into groups. Each group is in charge of one blog. Each group is in charge of one syllabus topic. They present the topic in an interesting manner using a blog or Google Site. Groups read other group blogs and post comments. The best blogging group gets a reward.

Your Questions: Google Wave : 

Your Questions: Google Wave What is Google Wave? How can it be useful in Languge teaching? How much time should be spent on computer-based instruction compared with teacher directed instruction in kids ELT. How can teaching be made more effective in mixed ability English language classes?

How To Use Google Wave : 

How To Use Google Wave Divide the class into groups. Each group starts a new wave. Each group is responsible for one syllabus topic. Other groups post questions, feedback and comments. The waves are embedded in blogs or Google Sites.

Your Questions: ESP : 

Your Questions: ESP How language teaching can effectively be done to the student of the Engineering colleges ? I am presently working on ESP and would like you to give me basic tips for teaching English to students opting for jobs in Aviation and related hospitality sector.How could teaching of English could be made effective for these students keeping in mind the Indian context.

ESP : 

ESP Select a Technical Passages similar to the main subject of the students and base all language activities around that text. Think of the contexts where these students need to use English in their career and give them practice in such exchanges. http://www.amazon.com/How-Make-ESP-Work-You/dp/0449212025

Slide 18: 

Fuzzy controllers are used to control consumer products, such as washing machines. video cameras, and rice cookers, as well as industrial processes, such as cement kilns, underground trains, and robots. Fuzzy control is a control method based on fuzzy logic. Just as fuzzy logic can be described simply as ’’computing with words rather than numbers’’, fuzzy control can be described simply as ’’control with sentences rather than equations’’. A fuzzy controller can include empirical rules, and that is especially useful in operator controlled plants. Take for instance a typical fuzzy controller 1. If error is Neg and change in error is Neg then output is NB 2. If error is Neg and change in error is Zero then output is NM (1) The objective here is to identify and explain the various design choices for engineers. In a rule based controller the control strategy is stored in a more or less natural language.

Slide 19: 

Air traffic control (ATC) involves communication with aircraft to help maintain separation — that is, they ensure that aircraft are sufficiently far enough apart horizontally or vertically for no risk of collision. Controllers may co-ordinate position reports provided by pilots, or in high traffic areas they may use radar to see aircraft positions. Four different types of ATC: - center controllers, who control aircraft en route between airports control towers (including tower, ground control, clearance delivery, and other services), which control aircraft within a small distance oceanic controllers, who control aircraft over international waters between continents, generally without radar service. - terminal controllers, who control aircraft in a wider area (typically 50–80 km) around busy airports.

ESP Skill Development : 

ESP Skill Development Basic Language Skills Advanced Skills Related To Profession Keep these questions in mind and prepare LSRW GR VOC Tasks What type of language they need to listen to? Who will they need to talk to? What kind of conversational exchanges they need to be prepared for? What kind of technical texts they need to read? What kind of technical reports they need to prepare?
