13 Very Different Tools To Help Students Find Their Voice

13 Very Different Tools To Help Students Find Their Voice | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

""Students need a voice.

By voice, I mean the ability to recognize their own beliefs, practice articulating them in a variety of forms, and then find the confidence — and the platform — to express them."

Language learners from around the world can share their thoughts on English and culture with their world neighbors.

sarspri's curator insight, February 16, 2013 1:56 PM

A great example of Voicethread in action for speaking and listening with language learners.  Many of the prompts are structured as exam practice.  Students can record, but also hear examples by learners from all over the world.

Twinvox

Twinvox | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Richard Garcia:
Here's a good site for those who care about speaking! Excellent service where people can share their communicative skills as native speakers of a language as they share a good time with someone else who is willing to learn that language through a videochat within the twinvox platform. Find peers and start sharing your skills and learning for free from someone else the language you want to learn. Good initiative, indeed!
