7 Apps to Help Anyone Improve Their English Grammar | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
In a world of spellcheck and texting abbreviations, few people want to take the time to learn about subjects, objects, and dangling modifiers. Besides, computers can fix our sentences for us. However, as anyone who's suffered an autocorrect embarrassment knows, computers don't always get it right. Language is a human tool and requires the insight of…

Formative assessment is an important tool teachers can use to target students' learning needs. When teachers know what students know (or don't know), they can better adjust their teaching to meet the kids right at their level. These digital formative assessment tools can help you do the job.

"I enjoy discussing iPad and other edtech resources with my colleague and friend Sylvia Duckworth almost every week through Twitter. Sylvia is a leader in the French teaching community in Canada, and has created an enormous amount of resources for language teachers to use. I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."

Sock Puppets

Sock Puppets is a highly engaging app that allows you to create your own stories with virtual sock puppets straight into your iPhone in a very easy and intuitive way.
Add Puppets, scenery, backgrounds and additional objects and start creating your story. The puppets automatically lip-synch to your voice when you touch the record button. Children can create stories and add the characters they prefer. Storytelling is probably the best way to foster writing and reading skills as well as literacy. While recording simply choose a puppet, tap it and that puppet will lip-synch, tap a different puppet and switch auto lip-synching to it. Stories can be as rich as the children’s imagination can reach. Backgrounds can be added to take puppets to different places within the story.
Children can later share their stories across the net, which makes it also highly rewarding.

Sock Puppets is free, although extra features need an upgrade (clips only last 30 sec, which could be enough for very short stories... longer stories need to be cut into different clips)

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Think back to your experiences learning Shakespeare when you were in high school. Rather than simply reading the play, the teacher probably told you that you would be performing it in class. While this sounds like it might be fun, it probably devolved into a few apathetic students standing at the front of the room reading in monotone voices.

Students learn Shakespeare when they perform Shakespeare. They understand his words when they can truly interact with them. Unfortunately, most of our students aren’t actors, and they really aren’t comfortable performing in front of their classmates. How can we get our students to engage with Hamlet & Macbeth in ways that won’t bore or embarrass them?

There are some amazing tools available for iOS devices that will allow your students to create projects that force them to connect with the text in fun and exciting ways.

Very good post... not only for those who want to get The Bard into our students' heads, but also for those who merely want to get their students into reading and acting!!
