Lino's curator insight, July 12, 2013 4:13 AM

Es una aplicación potente y muy fácil de usar que nos permite crear clips de vídeo reproduciendo una historia  con frases de texto que hayamos ideado entre dos o más personajes.

 

El video final se puede compartir directamente en Google+ o como un enlace para cualquier sitio que deseemos (por desgracia, no se muestra una vista previa o miniatura cuando se trata de compartir vídeo creado con StoryBuilder en Facebook).

 

Una gran herramienta.

 

De uso libre. (No tenemos que registrarte o iniciar sesión para acceder a ella).

"Twitter bookmarks way outnumber all the other bookmarks I have in my Chrome browser. Whenever I come across a video, a guide, a tutorial, a graphic, or a well written article on Twitter I automatically add it to this list of bookmarks and from time to time I refer to these bookmarks to select for the content I want to share with you here as is the case with the awesome graphic below. I am also working on  a term paper for my  MA Ed  here in the Mount University. This paper is about  the use of twitter as a professional development tool for teachers and which I will share with you in PDF format once it is submitted .

Today I am sharing with you this great graphic from Langwitches. check it out below and share with use what you think of it.Enjoy"

Learning languages a way out of crisis, says Vassiliou

Learning languages a way out of crisis, says Vassiliou | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The latest European Commission figures show that in 2011 just 42% of European 15-year-olds were competent in their first foreign language, despite often having learned it from seven years of age. Furthermore, the figure differed hugely across different EU countries, with 82% for Sweden and just 9% for Britain. [...] The commissioner also spoke of the position of English as the EU’s lingua franca - once an “elephant in the room” in Brussels - but added that learning it should not come at the expense of other languages.

“While English may be seen as a ‘basic skill’ today … I am still absolutely convinced that it is more and more the knowledge of other languages that can make the difference in getting a job and progressing in one’s career,” she said.

Are you tired of searching for a specific glossary online?

Are you tired of searching for a specific glossary online? | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it


Try our new one-stop-shop for online glossaries in an array of domains.

We are glad to announce that we have added our Glossary Links (http://www.euterm.org/test1/glossary/) to the website and made them available to a wider public. It is a glossary search tool with a database of almost 1,400 glossaries available online and is constantly growing. All the links in the glossary search tool are regularly checked and updated by TermCoord in terms of relevancy and reliability.

You can now find glossaries according to topics and by language. The glossaries cover a wide range of domains like for example legal affairs, environment, medicine, consumer protection, human rights, economy and many others. It is very easy to use: just choose a category, enter a keyword or make a search by source (i.e. providers/creators of the glossaries).

We would be grateful for any feedback concerning the search tool itself and ideas for material to add to the Glossary Links (http://www.euterm.org/test1/glossary/).


======
(The EU's glossary links can now be accessed from TerminoTrad (http://terminotrad.com/), under Databases and Dictionaries/Bases de données et dictionnaires).
