English may be the most popular language on Twitter, but there's 60 other tongues to connect in. [...]

The most popular language is English (and American English at that), but there’s 61 languages used on Twitter, which means there’s no excuse not to use it to connect with pupils right around the world.

The social media measurement company Semiocasthave created some linkbait which shows the way that language is used on Twitter across the world. English is the most popular (Twitter doesn’t have an easy ride in China, don’t forget), but after that it’s Japanes, Spanish, Malay (who knew?) and Portugese."

Monica MIRZA's insight:

Semiocast is... French ;-)

The visuals also allow EFL learners to practise comparison, contrast, opposition, the use of comparative and superlative forms...

Called "Britain's most wanted artist"... | the Culture Show -TV

 

"... he quites likes this title !"

This British culture show covers the illusive, infamous Banksy.

Now part of the British culture, Banksy keeps inventive as well as smartly subversive... and a goldmine for EFL-ESL teachers to dig in !!

There are many ICT tools to help achieve such textbooks but I guess paper, glue, scissors, pencils & hands might as well be enough to create nice objects/books :-)

[...] flipping the teacher/pupil relationship | Classe inversée - Flipped learning

[...] flipping the teacher/pupil relationship | Classe inversée - Flipped learning | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

I read recently that a ‘normal’ child asks one question per subject per month. Separate research (yeah, yeah, not comparable data) shows. [...] we still posit the teacher as the unprompted giver of knowledge, as well as the inquisitor of those with fewer facts in their brain. But is that about the most efficient way of transferring understanding, or simply the best method of authority and crowd control?

With all the chunter about the flipped classroom and changing the mechanic of learning, shouldn’t we flip the balance of power in the classroom instead? Shouldn’t children be asking the questions and teachers providing the answer?"

"[...]  Finally the fear of graphic novels as somehow less worthy literature is dispelling, and teachers now value the contribution graphic novels make to enhancing literacy education. [...] Graphic novels, comics and manga versions of children’s literature offer readers an understanding of the impact of our visual culture. Language acquisition is based on thinking visually (Britsch 2009). It is how we make meaning of the language we learn. Graphic novels, comics and manga assist children’s ability to interpret their world. Language alone does not represent reality.  [...]"
