This seems to be one of the microblogging platforms of choice for teens at the moment. It centres around creative expression and although you can use it through the browser it has been designed for use on mobile. Great for creating video, audio and image up dates. Very nicely designed platform.

Elizabeth Catania's curator insight, November 25, 2013 2:05 PM

I think it is so exciting to teach English pedagogy through multimedia. New Literacies as they call it, is so innovative and truly allows a student to make deeper, more menaingful connections from what they already know to what they are working towards learning. Knowledge is only power when you can use it and apply it as you share what you know with others!

Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, September 3, 2013 4:47 AM

Interesting idea - this could be useful in EFL teaching or just for people who are reading in English as a second language and need a bit of help.

 

I tried it on the Adobe Connect website to see if it would demystify some of the 'Marketese' though, and it didn't help much! A sentence such as 'Powering mission-critical web conferencing solutions, end-to-end, on virtually any device' is full of everyday words which are being used in an unnecessarily obscure way. Which is why I'm in favour of simply writing in plain English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_english).

 

On that subject, I recently discovered the absolutely wonderful Simple English Wikipedia (http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page), which does just that.

"Many of us using technology in the classroom find ourselves caught between two worlds: Apple and Google. Apple’s iPad is a fantastic tool in the classroom which provides students with various opportunities to consume, create, and communicate. Similar to a swiss-army knife, it is only limited by how we choose to use it. At the same time, Google apps provide students with cloud-based services, from search to document creation and sharing, that work seamlessly on iPad."
