Core activities for using the chart to integrate pronunciation

Core activities for using the chart to integrate pronunciation | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Adrian Underhill wrote this article on using the phonemic chart to support pronunciation in the EFL/ESL classroom for the British Council's teaching English site in 2010.  Very practical suggestions for getting started and going further with phonemes and intonation without lecturing on phonetics.

Itzel Chavez S.'s curator insight, April 25, 2015 3:20 PM

Many activities for the Phonetics teacher when using a Phonetic chart. Teaching of sounds shouldn´t be boring,  you can play bingo, swat at the sound and sound matching which are funny and interesting ideas. Have students to be at ease with the sounds : )

As a longtime user of Google Docs, I am very excited that all students in our schools have been given their own Google Apps accounts because I recognize the tremendous potential that comes along with using these online digital tools. One of the things I'm most excited about is using Google Docs to facilitate the writing process. Here are some of the cool features available in Google Docs to support writers:

Curate Educational Content Discovery and Collection with instaGrok Search

Robin Good: InstaGrok is a web-based app that makes it easy to find relevant information on a specific topic, and to collect the bits that are of most value to you.

 

InstaGrok presents itself with a search interface in which the results are represented as a dynamic mindmap whose nodes can be explored by simply clicking on them.

 

In addition, on the right side of the screen Instagrok provides an aggregated selection of:

a) key facts

b) educational web sites articles on the topic

c) video clips

d) images

e) quizzes

f) glossaries

 

Any information item in these sections can be easily collected and stored inside your personal Journal, an automatic bibliography-builder which captures any and all of your peferred items.

 

Key facts, web site content, glossaries, images and video sections offer lots of useful materials instantly, while I am a bit more skeptical about the value and effectiveness of quizzes.

 

Though the interface leaves lots to be desired and has a typical "academic" feel, the content and results that were offered me in my tests were quite good and the use of pins to build an annotated journal of resource son a topic seems to me to be very effective.

 

Free to use.
