How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | EAP, ELT and EFA | Scoop.it
Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.

Corrective Feedback : User the language power tools to process your assignments | EAP, ELT and EFA | Scoop.it

Teachers sometimes hesitate to assign writing tasks because of the correction work it creates. However, students benefit from frequent writing practice and the corrective feedback they receive. One solution is for teachers to work longer hours. Another is to find ways to integrate automatic corrective feedback into second language pedagogy.
