Mary Starry's curator insight, October 17, 2013 10:29 PM

Looks like a great tool to use when you're looking for that specific word you can describe but can't remember.

5 Web Tools to Create Digital Newspapers for Your Class

5 Web Tools to Create Digital Newspapers for Your Class | Digital education | Scoop.it

To boost your sense of achievement and to showcase what you have been working on diligently with your students, a digital newspaper would be your perfect solution. This paper can include different contributions from your students and from you as well. Encourage students to share their writing pieces, create videos and share the links or any other multimodal activity. There is nothing as rewarding for students as seeing their work published and shared with others.

This is a very thorough module on using corpus linguistics in the classroom.  It is about 50 pages worth of materials. A great introduction or review of the uses of corpora, resources and related research.

Carmenne K. Thapliyal's curator insight, May 5, 2013 6:43 AM

Superbly brilliant !! 

Shona Whyte's curator insight, May 5, 2013 11:06 AM

Undated module on Graham Davies' legacy website (most recent reference 2011, the majority from the 1990s).  The authors recommend printing and reading the 50+ pages of information, then come back to the webpage to use the links to complete the activities.

Games With a Purpose and a Social Network

Games With a Purpose and a Social Network | Digital education | Scoop.it

I was actually more interested in the games than the chatting, though with the last game, particularly if you are choosing similar pictures a lot, it might be interesting to chat and find out how similar the person you are working with is. It's also a good bit of language practice for your students if they do, though as ever they should be careful to protect their privacy and identity.

Christoph Meier's curator insight, May 5, 2013 6:00 AM

Prof. Mohamed Amin Embi von der Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia hat in diesem Dokument aus 2012 insgesamt 10 Web2.0 Publishing Werkzeuge im Hinblick auf Möglichkeiten ihrer Verwendung in Lehr-Lernprozessen angeschaut. Betrachtet werden Scribt, Issuu, Youpublisher, Calameo, Myebook, Flipsnack, Yudufree, Docstoc, Wobook und Slideshare. Nach einer kurzen Charakterisierung (anscheinend basierend auf den Selbstdarstellungen der jeweiligen Services) werden anhand von Screenshots die Benutzeroberfläche und grundlegende Funktionalitäten aufgezeigt. Details etwa dazu, wie mit den verschiedenen Werkzeugen welche Arten von Medien (Audio, Video, etc.) in die entstehenden E-Books eingebunden werden können finden sich leider nicht. Ebensowenig eine vergleichende Charakterisierung / Bewertung der Werkzeuge.
