Teaching Recipes - lots of ideas

I was going through our "sites" of the day and really kind of taking joy at this list of resources. Solid sites that help educators. But I noticed one glaring hole -- Teaching Recipes.



Teaching Recipes is a site where you…

Blubbr - Youtube quizzes

I've followed with anticipation each time over the years - a new website allowing teachers to make comprehension quizzes for Youtube videos.  As the director of Education at EnglishCentral, this is interesting to me because EnglishCentral is working on similar functionality.

 

There is a long list of sites doing this, going back to…

Rewarding Student Achievement

I have always promoted in my own teacher training, the need for teachers to focus on praise and student success. Nothing breeds success like the feeling of success .... 

One way to do so is to give out student achievement…

Using Flickr For Language Teaching

Along with access to video, the access to huge libraries of images is a revelation for language teachers and one of the main advantages of being a tech teacher (webhead). 

Flickr is probably the best resource for this and I'd advise every teacher to learn how to access the Flickr library to get quality images.  Here briefly are my favorite Flickr tools/apps for taking…

Letter Bubbles

I've already written many reviews about websites for learning how to type. They are quite handy and also teach students a little English keyboarding at the same time - a vital skill. 

Here's an addition - Letter Bubbles

It isn't too…

SoundCloud

SoundCloud is a cool idea. Really functions well and enables sharable audio recordings in an attractive "playlist" fashion. (see my presentation "Websites for Speaking Practice" for a list of many more I recommend and have reviewed).



Students can record assignments… Continue

Curriki

Curriki.org is a wonderful endeavour. It is a place where teachers can share resources and bypass the big monopolization of "content" which many large

publishers hold. I"ve been a member for awhile but haven't looked at the Foreign language directory for a few months. Since then it has grown substantially and I'm thinking of putting our own EFL Classroom 2.0 materials there. Join, click on our pic! and see…

43 Things



 

43 Things is the kind of site that I call a "home work" site.

 

A place that you can send students for whole language practice BUT with the intention that they bring something back to class for a classroom language activity.



43 Things is where you can make "lists" of how you want to improve your life. You can hit some popular tags and follow what other people have…

Chatterbots - Honest Johnny

I really think the future of online language learning is with the perfection of voice recognition technology. One step along this road is the use of speaking bots. While Honest Johnny isn't a real bot (like… Continue

2 Image making sites

Today, I'd like to introduce 2 fantastic photo editing sites. 

 

Tuxpi is a simple place where students and teachers can quickly do some very dynamic editing of photos with a minimum of work/headache. It is brilliant!

Fodey is much the same and click the top right corner links for many surprising ways to get students…

Smart Choice - Culturally Specific Content

Smart Choice - Culturally Specific Content.



I'm not a big one for giving publishers promotion - not because I don't believe in textbooks yadda yadda... rather because I think that "profit" should stay away from those things directly concerned with learning and education. However, I understand realities and "good things" when I see them , so I'd like to suggest readers check out Oxford Univ.…

Simply the Best - for any toolkit

web-tools350pxh There has been A LOT of consolidation online, over the last 7-8 years. Sites, tools have come and gone. The web can be a cruel marketplace and particularly so when it comes to tools that help teachers and get students learning/creating.



There is so much out there! So, in order to help new teachers especially, I'm going to list those that are "Simply the Best" and have stood the test of time. Simply the best sites for students to create, share, produce and work with… Continue

Translation Tools - oddcast and google

Today's ELT chat was about using translation in the classroom. I joined in late but the tweeting reminded me of two very "solid" automated translation tools for students and teachers.

 

1.  The Oddcast Translation bot

 

Limited to 250 characters, it is still very powerful. Type in the L1 language and then have it read…

Chirbit - real Audio possibilities

chirbit When I think about the possibilities of using technology to learn language - it is the audio realm that really excites me. Unlike other subjects, we have ready made content to now bring directly into our classrooms. Input is the technical term - I call it the plain old thing - oral language.



I've championed from the get go such great tools as Voicethread,… Continue
