"Welcome to snopes.com, the definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors, and misinformation.  -  The definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors, and misinformation"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

Learning a foreign language nowadays means also searching the Internet for information and facts. As a result of using the ICT, pupils or students are now able to pick these up rather fast... sometimes too fast !

Media literacy is part of a teacher's daily task, no matter how reduced this part might be compared with TEFL itself. As a surfer ought to check a piece of information accuracy before he forwards the email including it... a learner ought to check some  pieces of information accuracy when gathering them online for his own work. As well as www.hoaxbuster.com www.snopes.com is an interesting tool for both of them :o)

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.

DYSLEXIA | Police pour aider les dyslexiques (Korben) ~ OpenDyslexic, a new font

DYSLEXIA | Police pour aider les dyslexiques (Korben) ~ OpenDyslexic, a new font | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it
Être dyslexique, c'est un vrai problème pour des milliers de personnes. Il s'agit d'un trouble qui empêche une personne d'identifier correctement des lettres, des syllabes ou des mots. Pas simple à gérer au quotidien surtout à notre époque et dans notre société ou l'écrit constitue une grande partie de notre communication. En réaction à cela, …
Monica MIRZA's insight:

OpenDyslexic, est une police libre et gratuite : d'après les premières réactions des personnes dyslexiques l'ayant testée, "elle a amélioré leur vie".

D'une manière générale, employer une police Sans Serif/empattements.

- - - - - - -

To type handouts/documents for dyslexic learners, we'd better use Sans Serif fonts. Yet, Times New Roman (the most common default font for word processors) is a Serif font... which will thus make things pretty harder to them !

OpenDyslexic font is specifically aimed at dyslexic readers :

>> http://www.dafont.com/fr/open-dyslexic.font

It's free (as in beer !) and an open source font. Its author tells us "It is [...] licensed under a CC license. Even though this font has a way to go, you can download it and use it today. You can use it as a system font [ ... or on] your website [... or] package it with an ebook reader."

If you're in a hurry and have no time to download/installing it, you'll find 'Arial' font quite handy : it's displayed by every word processor.

Should you print handouts for them, all you need is to enlarge its size  (eg 14).

A part EdX soucieux de qualité sur ce plan, les autres plates-formes (for-profit) savent très bien qu’elles n’obtiendront aucune rentabilité correcte pour les investisseurs s’il n’y a pas la masse, la standardisation et la production à moindre coût.

Technology is Changing how Students learn, Teachers say | NYTimes

Technology is Changing how Students learn, Teachers say | NYTimes | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

“I’m an entertainer. I have to do a song and dance to capture their attention,” said Hope Molina-Porter, 37, an English teacher at Troy High School in Fullerton, Calif., who has taught for 14 years. She teaches accelerated students, but has noted a marked decline in the depth and analysis of their written work.

She said she did not want to shrink from the challenge of engaging them, nor did other teachers interviewed, but she also worried that technology was causing a deeper shift in how students learned. She also wondered if teachers were adding to the problem by adjusting their lessons to accommodate shorter attention spans.

“Are we contributing to this?” Ms. Molina-Porter said.
