http://calper.la.psu.edu/profdev.php?page=webinars The Center for Advanced Language Proficiency Education and Research (CALPER) at the Pennsylvania State University is one of fifteen Title VI Language Resource Centers (LRCs) in the United States which are funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
I found interesting your plan and presentation of the technology of teaching. It is indeed very clean and clear blueprint who will do what and how it would be applied and what would be its outcome in class. Yet Sankarakumar I am slightly skeptical about Blooms taxonomy when in reality we decide the pragmatic pedagogy to train ELTs or ElT students. If you could just take one frame of your whole blueprint of lesson plan i.e. "Introduction to Communication" then we would like to have from you how you have set this frame into small segments for discourse and to be interactive with students and finally inserting in it the Webskills, because when we frame small units of one of the sub-frames then it also stimulates teacher/supervisor/ program planner/teacher as co-learner to enrich himself first how he would respond to his own thought -process while planning his little units of communication in the class. I request you to first decide your action plan for each sub-frame and then your response to your steps will disseminate the learning skills on the part of the learner. I hope I may have made you understand the reality of pragmatics in the ELT pedagogy as well as heuristics of language application skills.

The present programme on television KAUN BANEGA KAROREPATI, led by the great millennium artist Amitabh Bacchan, conceptualizes the practice and performance of language through the use of cooperative learning strategies, peer tutoring, and increasing meaningful access through comprehensible input i.e. written texts with texts on recorded media – whether audio or video. It focuses on the preservation of culture, identity and mother tongue but at the same time it has developed universal auxiliary language that can be understood in the farthest locations of multi-cultural India. The KBC programme makes a judicious use of web-based learning through KBC web-game and through this internet-based learning it includes the use of social networking sites, email, chat-boxes, web-browser and podcasts. Similarly the artist Amitabh Bacchan is not only seem to be well-conversed with language proficiency as a teacher but he seems to be very much concerned with cross-culture requirements of multi-lingual nation India. If we perceive Amitabh Bacchan as the E-tutor in this programme, he provides the language driven, diagonistic based instruction that focus on individualized instruction through multi-media and online classroom, where we see the audience respond to his dedicated session of KBC and he also effectively plays the role of a citizen, a stakeholder, an employee who guarantees the completion of programme with better TRP rates day by day just like the E-Age Excellence Programmes.

The world over where there was and there are commonwealth of nations, the English language has become the medium of deconstructing and demystifying the statuettes of eastern and western enigma and at the operational level there have been efforts to combine lingual mobility with social mobility, so that mobilization of non-native speakers of EFL may be achieved through assimilation, immersion and sheltered process. Deciphering the EFL through ELF has opened avenues to disseminate information, sound system of language, structural aspects via internet and computer. Therefore web-skills, webinars and webpages are unraveling the trajectory of cross-cultural peripheries both for native and non-native speakers of EFL and these are shaping the programs and methods of ELT to create English for Lingua Franca all across the globe. The aim is to bring in close circuit the speakers of EFL with their expanded circles by way of non-conventional and virtual techniques of web-network system.
