Apps in Education: Stop Motion Apps - Great Storytelling | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Storytelling continues to be a powerful tool in education. Storytelling from a teacher's point of view allows us an insight into the depth of understanding our student have around certain concepts and ideas. It also gives us a privileged view into the world of the kids in our care.

A Day In The Life - EFL CLASSROOM 2.0

A Day In The Life - EFL CLASSROOM 2.0 | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Nice short (2min 45sec) video, no speech, showing one man going about his day.

 

David Deubelbeiss suggests using it for speaking/writing about daily routines: "Ask students to describe (as you play) or write (during / after) what this guy does in his day. Nice, real context for practicing speaking about routines."  But it could just as easily be using for describing what is happening at the present time, to practice present continuous or for fluency.

It's the Pedagogy, Stupid: Lessons from an iPad Lending Program

It's the Pedagogy, Stupid: Lessons from an iPad Lending Program | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

The truth is that the iPad is not destined to change the face of education. Nor is it just an expensive toy bought only by Apple fanboys, as some anti-Apple bloggers hyperbolize. It's a tool, like any other, and in the classroom it must always be thought of as being in the service of pedagogy. The pedagogical foundations must be solid, because the tool will achieve no heights the underlying pedagogy will not support.

The Curfew

The Curfew | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Online realistic game with a vast array of resources and effects. A good way to practice English along with values and citizenship.

Set in 2027 in the heart of an authoritarian security state, The Curfew could be described as a miniature Canterbury Tales set in a not-so-distant future, where citizens must abide by government security measures and 'sub citizens' are placed under curfew at night.

The player must navigate this complex political world and engage with the characters they meet along the way to work out who they should trust in order to gain freedom.

Choose wisely and you could change the course of history. Choose poorly, and it'll be changed for you.
