60 Second Recap - Literary books for "digital types"

60 Second Recaps is a neat concept. You can find there most high school English literature - classic books like Animal Farm, Hamlet, To Kill a Mockingbird etc.... What's cool is that they are explained in 4-6 neat 60 second recap videos. Think Coles Notes for the digital native!



The recaps are very engaging. However, she speaks quite fast for second language speakers, so filter as necessary. Still, they are done in very… Continue

in class - the Akinator will guess whatever celebrity/fa mous person you

have chosen. Guess by asking questions. Very simple set up of responses

( Yes, Probably, Don't know, Probably not, No). He guessed everyone I

choose (Obama,… Continue

Scorms - Student Read Video Stories!

Smories is fabulous! I've always believed that the most beneficial thing for those learning language through video was 2 fold: 1. strong context 2. faces . Smories gives both in spades.



Find there native speaking students, young learners, reading video stories. There is a grade level (for EFL I recommend grade 3-4). You only see their face, as they read. Lovely! It is also a… Continue

Sortfix - a REALLY cool way to search

I guess this week I'm all into search engines! I'm beginning to promote our own "intelligent" and social search engine for ELT only and now Sortfix - a very intuitive and new way to search.


Sortfix allows you to breakdown the search into what you REALLY want. A multi step search.


1. Search a…

SafeShare.TV - a perfect Youtube helper

Safeshare.TV is a wonderful tool for teachers.



Safeshare.TV allows you to hide the youtube "junk" that is on the page surrounding the video. The ads, the other thumbnails, comments, banners etc.... This can be really distracting to students and using Safeshare.TV makes life easier.



Here's an example of a regular youtube video:… Continue

Google Sets - Perfect for vocabulary

google sets

Google sets has a lot of possibility. Simple tool for a teacher to make a vocabulary set.



Just put in a few items (in the example on the right - I put in French / English / German) and Google sets will predict and expand your list/set.



You could play an awesome game with this in class. A variation of scattegories.



1. State 3 vocabulary items.

2. Students brainstorm the rest for that list/set. Give a… Continue

Picture Puzzle Maker

This picture puzzle maker is really simple! Just go to the webpage, upload a photo and then choose how small you want the pieces to be. (I recommend choosing the largest size, that is difficult enough).



I think this might be useful for "jigsaw" type activities with text. Get the text as a picture (take a pic with your camera). I've posted up an example below. It might also be fun to do this with pictures of students. A hat tip to… Continue
