Useful indeed.  Language teachers typically use this kind of corpus to test their intuitions about usage, or in data-driven teaching send their learners to check their own vocabulary choices.  But it's not particularly easy to get started with this database, so this video is a good place to start.

Online Tools and Resources That Support Academic Honesty

Online Tools and Resources That Support Academic Honesty | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Students have invented lots of ways to cheat and, with the growing use of technology in education, new cheating options appear on a regular basis.

Although it seems an overwhelming problem to address, there’s no need to despair. Do your due diligence–stop violations and cultivate honesty among students by also finding technology that works for you.

Check out the list of 10 edtech tools below that can help promote academic honesty while fitting nicely into daily routines and improving the quality of your educational efforts.

Maria Angélica Morales Valencia's curator insight, September 6, 12:12 AM
Students use technology in most of the cases in a wrong way. For example, to cheat but exists some resources and tools that help teachers to promote honesty, some of them are: unplag that is able to recognize coincidences between students texts or homework and the place where was taken, this tool helps students to make a pre-check to look for unconscious similarities, ProctorU thanks to this tool, teachers can observed all students movements, what are they doing during tests, Google Scholar this resourse is so useful to find scholarly literature more appropriate for academic tasks without plagiarism.

Interesting Tools
Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, September 21, 1:45 PM
Some great resources listed here. I would argue, though, the best way to combat cheating is create engaging assessments that students want to do and learn from.

Main findings

 

"The key finding of the study is that a common conceptual approach at European level, capable of supporting the development of digital capacity in educational organisations, is both desirable and attainable.

 

The DigCompOrg framework has seven key elements and fifteen sub-elements that are common to all education sectors. There is also scope for the addition of sectorspecific elements and sub-elements. For each of the elements and sub-elements of DigCompOrg, a number of descriptors were developed (74 in total). Diagrammatically, the elements, sub-elements and descriptors of DigCompOrg are presented as the sectors of a circle, with an emphasis on their inter-relatedness and inter-dependence."

Connectivism: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology

Connectivism: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Just like anything else that involves human experience or interaction, the act of learning does not happen in a vacuum. It is at the intersection of prior knowledge, experience, perception, reality, comprehension, and flexibility that learning occurs. In years past, the traditional learning paradigms of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism have been the benchmarks against which the learning process has been measured. What happens, though, when you throw into the mix all the technological advancements that have come about over the last 40-50 years? These theories certainly do not become obsolete by any means, but they do need to be used in a very different way to be able to incorporate the attributes of a 21st century learning environment. In today’s technology-rich society, it has become increasingly important to learn how to learn. Vail put it simply by declaring that learning must be a way of being (1996).
