Hey everyone!I am new to the forum and am curious how you feel learning communities benefit educators when it comes to developing a collective responsibility as educators. Do you feel a forum like…Continue

CDLP - a great listening/reading/learning site!

CDLP - The California Distance Learning Project, is one of the many governmental sites leading the way towards free online learning resources.

 

It doesn't have a lot of "flash"…

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.

 

Oh…

Typing for EFL students

Today's site is a place your student's can go to learn to type in English. Very friendly and cartoonish but effective. I think typing skills in English are a very necessary skill students should learn when young and also by doing so, they learn a lot of English at the same time!


This site goes through 4 stages, just follow the dinosaurs instructions. In flash and flash and dynamic! Check it out!



I also recommend…

Phras.in

Phras.in is a great way to compare phrases, chunks, collocations and even sentences. Having an argument about grammar and usage with a colleague or student? No problem, use Phras.in and settle it for good. How the language is used, should be the measuring stick!


Phras.in will compare the two expressions using the vast corpus that is the internet. It will give you how often the phrase occurs and tons of…

Randall's Cyber Listening Lab

Randall's Cyber Listening Lab is a great site for students to get LOTS of listening practice. All listening activities are leveled from Easy Medium Difficult and Very Difficult and are appropriately leveled in my opinion. A great compliment to our own Listening page.



After the listening portion, there is usually a short multiple choice quiz for… Continue

ELT Games

ELT gamesis a nice "basic" resource site. All the resources are interactive and task based/conversation based. Students must use the information provided to communicate in "real" language terms. The teacher just needs to cut up the materials and distribute and explain (better demonstrate) the task well. I've always been a person who tells all the teachers I train that their best friend isn't a computer, a textbook or even a C.D - it is a pair of… Continue

Transl8it.com

I love Transl8it.com! If your students love text messaging (and most do), they will be motivated by this creative tool.



Transl8it simply takes real English and then supplies you with the text message translation. Simply put in the English and it spits out the text message. Copy this text…

Quizlet - the ultimate ELT flashcard resource!

Quizlet I like for one important reason -- it shows the initiative and drive of youth. Quizlet is run and designed by a high school student! Yes, it started it based on his own need to study his French words in high school. And now look at what we have!



Teachers, students can go and practice. I've set up an EFL Classroom account and I'd like members to go there and create a quizlet. That… Continue

SOHO Exchange





Sozo Exchange is a new video site for language learning. I am impressed by how clear the audio is and how well produced. Aimed at adult learners, the episodes focus on interviews and real language. Get a transcript to follow along. Unfortunately, they can't be embeded but you can download them thought they are quite large files. See the latest episode here or I've also… Continue

2 essential video professional development sites



Edutopia is an excellent, teacher friendly place. A kind of "grab all" site with lots of resources for teachers but more importantly, great prof. development examples. I especially like the collection of videos showing what actual teachers are doing in their classrooms. Great articles accompany and explain each video. There is a great one about Project based learning and students studying volcanoes. See the one in our player, I just loaded - an… Continue

SPRK - Many resources

SPRK is a great site with some "flashy" content. It is available in several languages (the original is Danish?) and has some applications/games you can enjoy right away.



The best by far is Help Roger Decorate His Room. Your students will love helping Roger and it has lots of audio and is very easy to use. Help… Continue

Lyrics Training

Anyone who has read a few of my postings knows without a doubt, that I'm a karaoke/music enthusiast! I find it a very motivating way to teach and learn English. It isn't the whole cure but it sure dulls the pain of learning English. See my full listing on our karaoke resources (especially this post) as proof of my commitment to… Continue

Dropbox

DropBox is a great idea. See the video below which explains the general principles by which it works. The basic idea is that it gives you a "virtual pocket" where you can find all the documents/resources/videos/items that are on your computers.

So for teachers it is a godsend! If you have a computer at school and also at home and then another 2 laptops, like I do -- it sometimes becomes very, very… Continue

SEN Teacher Printables





Sen Teacher is the bomb! The last few years I've been acquainting myself with special education and also finding that so many special ed. techniques/tools/methods really work well with language learning. Same with websites, they offer a plethora of resources for use in our classroom. Sen Teacher does too!

You can find our how to greet locals, about eye contact, personal space, gender, laws , communication, gift giving and… Continue
