Quand la critique des « suburbs » envahit les séries TV U.S.| Métropolitiques | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

"Longtemps présentées comme le symbole de l’American way of life, les suburbs américaines font aujourd’hui l’objet de vives critiques dans les séries télévisées. De Desperate Housewives à Weeds, les banlieues apparaissent, parfois de façon caricaturale, comme les lieux de la monotonie et du conformisme social, mais aussi comme le terrain de comportements immoraux ou déviants."

Ce n'est pas un hasard si les "instants suspendus" qui émaillent l'œuvre du peintre américain cinéphile Edward Hopper (1882-1967) inspirèrent Wenders, Jarmusch, Lynch ou même Hitchcock et Antonioni. A l'occasion de la grande rétrospective qui lui est consacrée au Grand Palais (Paris), retour sur les liens ténus entre Hopper et le cinéma."

The "BBC webwise" website deals with many aspects of computer use : this page displays resources on how to face bullying online.

Its various categories (your computer / using the web / e-mail & sharing / living & the internet / etc) include several parts that may be of some use in ELT (lesson plans on social media, the netiquette, and so on.. EFL-ESL teachers/learners also get a useful glossary on the site... Indeed, quite an interesting website : it provides you with lots of workable resources !

K. David Harrison (an associate professor of linguistics at Swarthmore College and a National Geographic Fellow) explains that languages are the human knowledge base : everything human beings know is encoded in languages and cultures. Harrison also tells about his dictionary project : the starting point is...  any language of the world ! These online dictionaries started about a decade ago.

"I understood, especially in these tough economic times, that striking can be an unpopular choice, but I wrote it with some rage at the lack of empathy and understanding I felt as an educator. I wrote it with the hope people would understand that we made this tough choice in the interests of our students. " a teacher says.

Creating Infographics with Students | Langwitches Blog | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

You wouldn't consider pics less -let me find a proper word- 'serious'  than printed words, for learners to work with... would you ? Using visuals definitely helps. : I've started using infographics for ELT since I first viewed one (have to admit it was dazzlingly bright)... many years ago.

Not only do infographics help visual learners understand and memorise, but they do help... anyone learn ! Besides, they now look familiar enough to enter our teaching tool case :-}

- - - -

"Why teach with infographics?

- help students make sense of vast amount of information

- organize and group related information together

- tell a story

- connect information

- make raw data more appealing to most learners who are visual

- understand complex relationships between data over time

- analyze and interpret information [...]"
