50 Redundant Phrases to Avoid

50 Redundant Phrases to Avoid | E-Learning | Scoop.it
In conversation, it’s easy in the midst of spontaneous speech to succumb to verbosity and duplication. In writing, redundancy is less forgivable but fortunately easy to rectify. Watch out for these usual suspects.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, September 20, 2013 10:40 AM

As a teacher who gives English lessons via Skype and in immersive environments such as Second Life, I value the options available for creating virtual working and meeting spaces for students and myself.

 

Your choice will be influenced by your teaching / learning environment and your students' needs and preferences. In addition to the proposed tools in this post, in my context (ELT), I find Voxopop very useful as an asynchronous space for audio communication and speaking activities. It is browser based, private rooms can be created and content can be archived for analysis and assessment.

 

Google Drive works well for written work and presentations and is great for individual and collaborative work.  When I am working with students here, we use Skype to communicate, but otherwise the chat box is very handy for simple interactions.

 

Linoit is just one of many canvas type spaces for creative work. I often upload videos, texts, writing and speaking prompts, images and so on, for extra work and as a space where students can feel free to play and experiment with language, using multimedia resources to stimulate creativity. 

 

Before setting up spaces all over the place, think carefully about what is going to be appropriate and compatible with your students' devices.

Great suggestions and links to guides and examples. The tools Trish mention in her insight also sound good.

Joe Pereira's curator insight, September 19, 2013 7:08 PM

A useful publication edited by a true expert in the field, detailing case studies from teachers who actually walk the walk. Of particular interest is the section on Digital game-based learning, covering Kyle Mawer (of Digital Play (2011) fame)'s use of walkthroughs and of course, my own use of parser-based Interactive Fiction in the language classroom (pages 34-35). Read the PDF online here:

Technology does help learning in the classroom because there are so many ways to go about using a device to get the material across to all the students in the class. I also think that since technology is all around us, that children are starting to learn at younger ages.
