Germanic Branch of the Indo-European Language Family

A comprehensive language website containing a detailed description of the different languages, and language families throughout the world, as well as language related topics.

 

Germanic languages are spoken by close to 470 million people in many parts of the world, but mainly in Europe and the Western Hemisphere. All modern Germanic languages derive from a common ancestor traditionally referred to as *Proto-Germanic, believed to have broken off from other *Proto-Indo-European languages some time before 500 B.C. Although no written documents in Proto-Germanic have survived, the language has been substantially reconstructed by using the oldest existing records. Compared to *Proto-Indo-European, **Proto-Germanic had a relatively simpler nominal morphology. For instance, it dropped the dual number, and reduced the number of cases from eight to four. On the other hand, the verbal morphology of *Proto-Indo-Eruopean survived relatively intact in all modern Germanic languages, although there are fewer strong (irregular) verbs today.

Coming explosion in e-learning an opportunity to rethink journalism education

Coming explosion in e-learning an opportunity to rethink journalism education | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"The winds of technological change are likely to blow apart educational institutes — and journalism training — and by 2020 universities will likely be quite different than they are today, according to a survey of Internet and education experts released today by the Pew Internet & American Life Project and Elon University... This means journalism education will face challenges very similar to the ones faced by the media industry 15 years ago — a disruption in the economic model for schools and a disruption in the content and teaching methods for education."

Educational Technology Guy: Project Based Learning Resources | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a great way to teach students content, 21st century skills, and engage them in something fun and educational. I spoke more about PBL in an earlier blog (http://www.techlearning.com/blogs_ektid17052.aspx) and we had some great reader comments (Tech&Learning, May 2009, page 14). Today I'd like to give some tips and ideas on how to get started with PBL in your classroom.
