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

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

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.…

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

Vocaroo - the audio recording solution

This is an update on Vocaroo, a great audio service that I reviewed a year or more ago as it was going through "growing pains".

 

It now works great and allows teachers / students to record their voice in a simple fashion. Then download it in one fell swoop!  The quality could be a little better but for a free service, it rocks. Just what learning needs, this kind of simple functionality. Here, try it yourself! Enjoy…

Abracadabra - Self Directed Learning

One thing that I'm very convinced of, is the notion that us teachers are "motivators". It is our job to motivate our students, to lead our students towards becoming self directed learners, learning for themselves, intrinsically.
