Good web site packed with resources. Best part in my opinion is the Teacher Training Corner, with lots of presentations on different issues.

Oddcast doesn't work. It keeps saying "translation error".
Carmenne K. Thapliyal's curator insight, October 5, 2013 3:18 AM

Two translation-chat tools that go beyond the normal -

Oddcast: you type in a sentence in your L1 and it translates  it for you and reads it aloud.

Google translation chat: a tool that translates for you while you chat. 

Interesting pedagogical implications for an autonomous learner.

Back To School: The art of possibility : EFL 2.0 Teacher Talk | EFL Classroom 2.0 | Scoop.it

A story.

Two teachers visit the principal’s office to get their new class assignment for the school year. The principal assigns them each to a class of new students. Both teachers don’t speak a word of the student’s mother tongue. The students don’t speak even one word of English.

Educational Absolutism : EFL 2.0 Teacher Talk

Educational Absolutism : EFL 2.0 Teacher Talk | EFL Classroom 2.0 | Scoop.it

One thing that has slowly happened to me in my own development as a teacher – I’m now less absolute and sure of myself. Now, that may seem a contradiction and that after 25 years meandering through the fields and mountains of schools, classes, education, I’d have some solid land to sit upon. But I don’t think it a contradiction – let me explain.
