Creating Interactive Web-based Exercises in Hot Potatoes (TESL-EJ review)

Creating Interactive Web-based Exercises in Hot Potatoes (TESL-EJ review) | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Hot Potatoes is a great freeware program for language teachers to create or upload exercises on their personal websites, class group sites, or on the password-protected Hotpotatoes.net. Creating exercises for learners gives them space to repeatedly practise the target language. Students may also engage in the process of creating the exercises themselves, then sharing their work on a class group site for others to access. Previous studies point to the need for learners to be provided with opportunities for language input, making language salient, and focusing on form (Chapelle, 2001; Ellis, 2005). Having students create exercises may allow them to both learn the concepts and practise their language skills through the creation of the exercise (Erben, Ban, & Castaneda, 2009)."

How English speakers won and lost the war of words: Larry Wilson | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

In France, 99.4 percent of students take significant amounts of English by secondary school. It’s 100 percent in the Czech Republic and, yes, the Netherlands, and mostly over 90 percent elsewhere in Europe (for the slackers in Hungary, it’s just 78 percent, and in Portugal for some probably political reason, 47 percent, by far the lowest on the continent).

Professor's Guide to Creating Video ^ free eBook | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Whether you’re practicing flipped or blended learning in your classroom, set the occasional video assignment, or have just observed that your students are part of the Netflix generation, you’ve likely seen what a powerful tool video can be for teaching and learning. And, while there’s certainly a wealth of great educational content available online, sometimes you — and your students — will want to create your own.

 

"Terrific news: It’s never been easier to create great video content! We know that quality matters; viewers rarely find shaky, inaudible and poorly lit video terribly engaging. But, an understanding of commonly available software, tools and basic production techniques is all you (and your students) need to create great quality video content. Best of all, you probably have most of the tools you need sitting on your desk right now. In this guide we’ll cover everything you need to know to produce educational and instructional videos using your PC and webcam. Why create your own video content?"
