All bout Demo Dynamic Material

Dear valued consultant,

As you can see, now we have launched the new version of Demo Dynamic Material. Today let’s talk about the changes and how to make good use of it.

#Don’t forget to leave your opinions and feedbacks down blow the blog. We will choose some best advice adding to the next CLT training material to improve our teaching experience.

Let’s see the differences between these two materials via chart.

Differences between Old Demo material and Dynamic Demo Material

Old Demo Material

New Dynamic Material

Teaching Pages

A. Easy to follow pages for each level
73 pages for all levels (No differentiation) 20 pages ( average for each level )

Introduction

B.  Less time on Intro

Go direct into topics

Talk to know each other for 3 mins

To prepare the right topic

Brief self-intro(1 mins)

Go direct into topics

Learning Goals

C. Clear learning goal

No learning goals

Clear leaning goals for each topic and level

( Diamond rewarding )

Interaction 

D. Fun Games & Songs
Only Hello and Goodbye Song Song & Chant
Card Game
Treasure Hunting

 

Let’s conclude: We brought dynamic material here to make demo more interesting and more attractive, to concentrate more on teaching itself than free talk. *That is, we make demo more like a teaching session.

Remark

①Welcome page removed:

In the previous material, consultants used to take a few minutes to communicate with our clients in the welcome page to give a primary level replacement so as to select a suitable material to teach. In future, student’s primary level will be given, so in this new version we prefer to make our demo class more like an teaching session, in this case, free talk should be avoided, which is why we cut off welcome page in the dynamic material, please go directly in the topic.

②Interest increasing:

Pictures in dynamic material are more vivid and fascinating. We designed interesting and fascinating animation in the material that will be attractive for the clients who are first time to our class.

③Difficulty adjustment:

We have also noticed some part of low-level clients find it difficult during demo session, and on the contrary, part of high-level students have a feeling that the material is too easy for them to learn. To avoid this, we adjust the degree of difficulty for the material.

Consultants need to know that lower the difficulty doesn’t mean that we now focus more interest than knowledge acquiring, but to give consultants more flexibility and creativity to adjust the difficulty during the class. There will be unlimited potential in dynamic materials if consultants have a good grasp of doing this. We are so happy to see some of our consultants have grown their adaptability to do this.

 

*Some adjustments that will soon be revised

Good news is that we are working on the pretest for students before demo session begins, so consultants can start the session like OUP session immediately right after the clients enter the classroom, without conducting the “welcome page” procedure. I believe this will help consultants to have more time to focus on teaching and impart more knowledge to our client even during limited class time.

FAQ

1. How to select and use Dynamic material?

Click and expand, choose the material accordingly.

*Agent and schedulers can’t upload material, please go with the material uploaded in the classroom.

2. How to activate the dynamic button in the material?

Click on the interactive button first to activate any motion. Only Song will include the audio track, chant will not include the audio.

3. How to practice using Demo Dynamic material?

4. Where do I access the Demo training material?

Interesting to see the overhauled , animated and exciting demo material and its proper flow and interactivity.
I only can’t understand the clear goals slide ; how many goals do we select to acheive, and how to determine which goals when we aren’t sure of the level as we start teaching is my question. Thank you! Looking forward to doing demos asap!

Ivana Pejakov

Yeah it s more interesting material specially for very young learners and a great point is that they can participate actively because the material is interactive.
My suggestion will only be for agents and schedulers to let the teacher choose the material. A couple of times it happened that they chose only first three materials and the student was beyond that so I had to turn to old material to give a student appropriate level material.

This is a step in the right direction. Its great to see such graphical focusses being addressed within the company as it attempts to cater for and address the needs of our clientele. I think clients would also love some 3D effects and the incorporation of VR within demos. It would equally be great to see anything thats being showcased in these new demos filter through into the actual learning environments, thank you👍

i love the new interactive classroom, its fun and keeps the clients interested, however in some slides the song button doesn’t appear..so i had to sing the chant :)) i tried my best..i still prefer the welcome page as it kind of indicates what level the student may be on..so i can choose the material accordingly.

I agree. I prefer the welcome page too, even if it’s only to teach complete beginners how to say their name and how to say hello. 🙂

As for the song button…. I had to just make up and sing the song myself too, because I couldn’t find the audio! I will ask this question tomorrow in the training session….

Hi Demo Team. Thank you for the new demo material. I do, however, believe that it is important to introduce myself as the teacher and then ask for the student’s name unless the agent can give me the student’s name before the demo begins. I have also taught under 4 year – old students (which I’m happy to do) but if they cannot speak English at all then I have to teach the alphabet and need this material. Sometimes I teach the phonics of the alphabet and it works. Trying to teach cat, dog, bird when they cannot even sound… Read more »

It’s very useful! New demo materials help you to buid a better interaction with kids.It will be great if teachers could choose the materials by themselves or more than 3 …bacause sometimes it really needs more materials for particular kids.Thank you

Nikola Marjanovic

This is probably more interesting for really young kids with no English knowledge BUT you have to make room in the materials for a bit older students with some medium knowledge, for example : 12year old level 5 does not want to talk about cats and dogs or the weather.

Melissa Mott

A lesson about sports or hobbies would be good. That was a frequent go-to lesson for teenagers, especially boys in level 3-5. (There’ s great material in the OUP lessons that could be drawn from).

Also, since we aren’t doing the welcome page, having the agents ALWAYS give us the child’s English name and age would be a big help.

I enjoy the new demo material. However the clients seem to find it harder to use the materials. Some are able to use the wand and work the dynamics but most are not.

Jackie Chen
Trainer

Hi Aisha, I am glad you enjoy the material. I would suggest to use more TPR like “listen” and “circle” to guide them, just some simple instructions, the goal is to interact, if they can’t use the whiteboard, it’s ok.

It’s working fine for younger students, however when they are really young and have no English even circling and TPR will not always get the message across to “choose the correct picture”. By the time enough examples have been shown the lesson time has already run down.
I suggest in the development of your pretests, you include some of the interactive methods used in the demos’ (not the same ones obviously just the same processes) so that the student is primed to understand what is expected in the demos.

I really feel it is necessary for me to know more about the dynamic demo materials , I always start with the free talk and welcome the client the classroom , so how should we deal with the levels of each client without knowing it inadvance ? I hope I can find the answer after this training.

I hope that by the time we start the demo, the agent would already have given us the student’s name and age at least. That way, we can fulfill the new objective of demos which is to be more dynamic.

I was unsure which material was better to begin with. Slowly but surely I am moving more towards the dynamic, especially with younger students. I would agree with another consultant that the welcome page is a great ice breaker along with a song. (Puts a smile on the face of the student).

Allison Ritter

I actually like using the hello slides. It helps me see where they are at level wise. I use the first page as the hello slide to figure out what level they are on. I don’t find the chants that helpful especially for younger ones as they can’t read. It is useful for repeating. I suggest getting rid of the chants with more focus on sentence structure and vocabulary. I miss the hello and good-bye song. Please encourage them to use a computer/laptop to do the interactive part. They just can’t do it. Younger ones can’t even circle. If they… Read more »

I like the materials for my younger learners, as they seem to enjoy them quite a lot and their interaction with the materials is greater. Still, older kids go through them rather quickly, and do not seem as impressed, so greater variety would be appreciated. Also, it would be quite useful if the agents introduced the clients to the interactive button, so that they could use it on their own and enjoy being involved even more.

Yes the new material is excellent! Very interactive and dynamic. This helps to engage students better and provides a more effective and exciting way of learning.

I do enjoy the new material and the interactive element adds another dimension to the presentation. However, I find that only having access to three levels is very restrictive. It’s nice to have lots of options when we discover a student is more advanced than the agent originally thought. I prefer a brief introduction – it’s nice to call the student by name and the agents don’t always know, or advise us beforehand. Also, the goals/reward system only works well if we don’t jump to another level – if we do, then it becomes confusing and defeats the purpose. I… Read more »

The new demo material looks great and is better for young beginner learners. With regards to the higher level material, perhaps it could do with more of a variety of topics that the students might find more relatable (not all students are interested in the universe and mountains) such as hobbies and interests; media; sports, etc.

Thank you to everyone in the demo department and the tech department for all of their hard work. I like the interactive slides in the dynamic demos. However, I have only had one client that knew how to use the toolbar. I read the above reply to Alisha Chaudhri from Jackie about using TPR to show the client how to circle and how to listen. Though that is really great advice, I think that these skills should be taught by the agent in the native language of the client before the demo session begins. That way the teachers could focus… Read more »

I’m not a fan of these new demo classes at all. They do not suit younger clients who are barely at the ABC stage, and they don’t suit older clients who correctly feel they’re too childish. Also there are so many redundant slides that we need to click past………I’m pretty sure that my Demo performance has declined with these lessons. Another thing, are they actually interactive? Can the students press the interactive button?

I just wish that instead of a wallet there would be a bicycle!! Plus, the wallet looks like square and that can be anything when you don’t understand!!! With a bike teachers can ask about colors and check for other adjectives like fast, slow, big, small, etc. As a child, would you rather have a bike or a wallet for your birthday? 😉

Francilla

The wallet is actually a very interesting word to teach. I show them a real wallet filled with real money and I can sometimes do a level placement based on their reaction. It’s a great conversation starter for the clients that are higher than level 4. They love talking about money.

Thank you for your hard work designing the dynamic material It’s definitely more interactive and easy to conduct a short lesson, I only would like that all materials can be seen because sometimes agents choose only three materials and maybe it is not suitable for students due to their age or even level. Also, I have noticed some difficulties on one of the animal’s page where it shows the animals in different cages student usually don’t know what do to because they don’t know how to use the toolbar so it would be useful to give them more guidance before… Read more »

The new demo material looks awesome, but it is better for very young beginner learners. I want to suggest that fo teenagers, a lesson about sports, hobbies or media, would be more appealing for students around level 3 to 6.
Since we aren’t doing the welcome page anymore, we really need the agents ALWAYS give us the kid’s English name and their age. That will be super helpful!
Thanks again!!!

The new lessons are awesome, thanks a lot. Especially young students relate to the vivid colors and beautiful pictures. However, it’s a bit childish for teenagers older than 15 who are still on a lower level. Also, without the hello page it’s of the utmost importance that the agents provide the English name, age and approximate level before we start. We loose a lot of time trying to figure out what their Chinese name is and then helping them to choose an English name. It will also be more fun if they know how to use the interactive button.

I think the new dynamic materials are lots of fun! However, one suggestion I have is that maybe the agent should introduce the student to the interactive button before the lesson, because until now I have not taught one single session where the (young, absolute beginner) student has been able to use it, even if I make the motions with my finger for them (for tablet users), or showing them the mouse and click it (for PC users). So far, this is how I have done it: I would ask, e.g. “Is this a cat?”, whilst pointing at the dog,… Read more »

Jo Martin-Brownlie

Yes, teaching the child about the “magic button” would be something that the agents could do in Chinese before the demo. The kids may be more enthusiastic if they know they can interact with the lesson. Also, I find the goals page confusing, and did not understand what to do with it on first glance… The writing is way too small – kids generally like something large to look at…maybe something could be done about this?

I like the New Jr Dynamic materials because they are all about one topic. I like the interactive pictures and I think kids like it too even though some of them can’t use the button it is still fun for them. The thing I would like to suggest is that we have a solid level of the student because there is a difference between level 1 and level 3 and when we go in I don’t know which one to choose.

Thank you for the opportunity to give you feedback on DDMs. I think it’s a wonderful idea to make the materials more engaging, but it is not yet perfected and needs some work. Please don’t take away the old materials as a backup option until these issues have been fixed. Here are my suggestions: 1. Pre-test is not always correct. Please allow us to access all the materials so we can adapt the demo. 2. The low level lessons are too childish for teenagers (animals and colors) – a parent actually complained to me about this, and she also said… Read more »

It shouldn’t matter what we use as long as the client is happy and buys the product. All I can do it use these new materials for a few minutes and implement them in the old materials. Both together are OK but the new materils alone are incomplete and not good for me. On the other hand I am open for more input so I will come to todays CLT. Thank you

I was hoping for a more variety of pictures to upload and more sticker/ usable props to use. Having set lessons like this heats having to scroll through so much un-usable materials like the Chinese sales slides but also it does not reflect the normal lesson materials and can very easily leave prospects feeling a let down once they have decided to sign with iTutorGroup

Hello Demo team,
The new material is definitely interesting and useful, especially for the younger students.
However, I believe that the intro page is also very useful. It is really nice to introduce myself as the teacher and then to ask for the student’s name at the beginning of the lesson. Also, it would be useful that the agents provide us english names for the students and their age.
Thank you for the improvements.

The idea of making some of the slides more interactive is a good one. Good work, Demo Team! I look forward to increasing my resources for all levels of demo lessons and thinking of new ways to expand on topics. For example, if a student already knows how to say and spell “bird,” then some follow-up questions could be: “Where do birds live?” …”What do birds eat?”… or “What color is your favorite bird?” We’re on track to something very special. Cheers!
