NFB - the best of "Canada" and the world in video!

NFB

I love the National Film Board of Canada and I've previously highlighted their fine videos and especially animations - for use in the classroom (or just enjoyment!). We have many classics like George and Rosemary, The Big Snit and Paddle to the Sea, in our videos.



The videos stream well and offer a wealth of authentic material and animations for use in the… Continue

Weebly

Weebly is a site where your students or you can make a website. Free and very simple.


Next semester, I'm teaching a course on Culture and language and will have my students make their own websites as part of their course requirements. You could also make a website for your own students or better yet, get them to make their own. Also, useful as a blogging site for your students who can easily share with each other…

Twetra - a simple way to make a web page!

Twiducate - a simple and safe social network for your students!

Twiducate gives me goosebumps! I really get excited when I see a tool that teachers can use with their class - a tool that genuinely gets students communicating in a "real" and purposeful fashion.



Twiducate functions like private twitter. Teachers sign up and invite students. Students choose from some nifty avatars and then begin "tweeting" to each other - responding. The teacher can "peg" questions to the top for students to respond to… Continue

Spezify - Visual and Social Search Engine

Spezify is a unique search engine that would be useful for second language learners (or teachers). Put in a term and it will give you both photos/pictures for the term and also the newest mentions on the internet. All in a kind of jumbled, interactive format. You can easily move things around and highlight as wished - this would be good for teachers who might want to instruct on a screen in front of the class.



Try it and search… Continue

Famous Author Interviews

Reading Rockets has a fantastic page of interviews with loads of famous children's authors. All with transcripts too!
Wonderfully insightful, I've spent most of the day avoiding marking and enjoying them.


Here Eric Carle of "The Hungry Caterpillar" and "Head to Toe"…
