Indispensable et fabuleux pour faciliter les interviews .

Les plans de relève lors de départs en retraite s'en trouvent facilités.

Eva Lacroix's curator insight, March 12, 2014 1:28 PM

Un outil permettant de réaliser assez rapidement et de façon très simple des transcriptions. Je ne sais pas si c'est limité en durée / poids, mais aussi bien l'audio que la vidéo semble fonctionner. Génial quoi !

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, November 15, 2013 3:16 PM

Interesting study done byEdinburghUniversityresearchers demonstrating that language recall is improved if the initial input was presented as a song.  This article highlights 5 ways you could use music in your language learning.

I'm actually learning Spanish at the moment and am using a combination of browser, mobile apps and podcasts - it's pretty cool and I feel I'm making progress but as a musician I reckon if I could find some music learning tools too - that would be amazing! 

Hayden Brown's curator insight, December 10, 2013 7:16 PM

I have always believed that music enhances the mind's ability to learn new things.

Cambridge Journals Online - ReCALL - Abstract - Will mobile learning change language learning?

Cambridge Journals Online - ReCALL - Abstract - Will mobile learning change language learning? | CALL | Scoop.it
The use of mobile phones and other portable devices is beginning to have an impact on how learning takes place in many disciplines and contexts, including language learning. Learners who are not dependent on access to fixed computers can engage in activities that relate more closely to their current surroundings, sometimes crossing the border between formal and informal learning. This creates the potential for significant change in teaching and learning practices. Taking the broader field of mobile learning as the setting within which developments in mobile-assisted language learning may be understood, the paper argues that an emphasis on mobility can lead to new perspectives and practices. The paper offers reflections on what mobile learning has to offer and considers whether it is likely to change how languages are taught and learnt. is not a stable concept; therefore its current interpretations need to be made explicit. Examples of current projects and practices show an affinity between mobile and games-based learning, and can further illuminate what is distinctive and worthwhile about mobile learning.
