Top 5 of All Time

cool-new-websites I had an interesting conversation or rather, "snippet" of conversation today. We were discussing language learning/teaching websites and the person I was talking to blurted out, "Just give me the top 5, NOTHING ELSE!".

Now, I think too much it seems. So much does depend on the context. The age of the students, their learning styles, your class environment, access to the internet,…

The product of my procrastination - so cool!

I was procrastinating today. Reading and just getting nothing much done. Loafing.

Stumbled upon this cool widget. A great way you can present language to your students, using one of your photos. Only trick is it seems much better if you use a cam to take the photo. I couldn't upload a photo that worked - thus, had to use my cam (worked like a charm) and highlight myself and my new shaven head (yes, spontaneous weekend thing!).… Continue

scrabble2 Scrabble.

It's an iconic word, game. I'm surprised we don't use it as an adjective - like, "I've been scrabbled".

Today, I was going over some of my past writings, all hidden away in boxes and notebooks. Came across a "feuilliton", a reflective essay that I wrote about scrabble years ago. I won't bore you with it - but I will share some great info. and amazing resources for Scrabble.

{ caveat: I'm not a big fan of using word games in the classroom -… Continue

He who dares to teach, must never cease to learn.


Many teachers are lifelong learners, so am I. But if I knew about EFL Classroom 2.0, I'd have saved plenty of time! 

I used to spend endless hours reading magazines, surfing the Internet and looking for any useful information about technologies in teaching English, about blogs, iPods, podcasts and interactive games. I was so proud of what I knew and could apply in my work! I shared my knowledge and experience with other teachers, made presentations…

Top Game Generators

juice The "Top" games series continues! It seems the categories are limitless.....

Today, I'd like to tackle "Game generators". A game generator is a site or program that makes it easy for a teacher or student to make a game. (and I mention student because the optimum way to use a generator for language learning is getting students to make the games). Game generators can be elaborate or simple, they can be plain or full of… Continue

There are some great bloggers online as well as there some great journalists out there in other forms of media. How many articles does one read before they are ready to contribute something? Does one summarise and compile the literature and adequately references it? Or does one just paraphrase and try to make this rehashing of read literature sound original?…

top5 Continuing on with the series of Top 5 games posts - today, I'm offering up the top games I've created. Games not based on any other concept but what I've thought up.

I got into making my own games simply because I saw so much "possibility". A way for me to be creative in the classroom and prime my own teacher development. There is a lot that goes into making a great game;

1. Engagement. How… Continue

Nothing breeds success like success

I've shown this video a number of times during my lectures on "The 7 faces of Happiness".

What it suggests to me are two important things:

1. How important school is to a child/student.

2. How giving students success really promotes more success.

School should be a positive, warm place. A place…

It's not strictly related to English Learners, but I thought it might be of interest to any elementary classroom teachers out there who have students…
