One in 8 Million - New York Characters in Sound & Images | The New York Times

One in 8 Million - New York Characters in Sound & Images | The New York Times | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

 

Double-clicking on the main picture unveils a series of photos illustrating an autobiographical story told by a central character. The whole lot offers moving & interesting portraits -brief bits of NYC lives- as for me they sound/look great for building comprehension tasks...  & analysing visual documents as well ! Help yourself :o)

"New York is a city of characters. The Green Thumb, whose community garden in a Brooklyn housing project shows children tha eggs don't come from eggplant. The Dictaphone Doctor, last of a dying bred. The Jury Clerk, who says 'Good morning' 200 times a day, and means it. [...]" and so many others. :o)

"Would the nostalgics and apologists of the “good old days” still hold the same views after viewing these vintage ads ? This list may clash with the upscale world of Mad Men… but is far removed from our times ?"

"Since we talked yesterday about the plethora of different types of visuals available to present information, we thought it might be useful to take a look at why visuals are useful as classroom tools, and some do-s and don’t-s of using visuals. Enter the handy infographic below. While this particular visual isn’t necessarily geared towards teachers, …"

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 [...]"

Whitney Huston : A Life In Music | Visual Biographies | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

 

This infographic showing 'The Voice' s life might well illustrate one of our learners final task. They'll possibly be working on the past or present perfect tense, on biographies, on practising dates, facts & figures... The visual side of the task is likely to get them to feel like choosing "their" celebrity and create their own related infographic poster :o)
