Captioning and Subtitling : Undervalued Language Learning Strategies

by Martine Danan (Translators' Journal - vol 40 -n°1)

"Audiovisual material enhanced with captions or interlingual subtitles is a particularly powerful pedagogical tool which can help improve the listening comprehension skills of  second-language learners. Captioning facilitates language learning by helping students visualize what they hear, especially if the input is not too far beyond their linguistic ability.
Subtitling can also increase language comprehension and leads to additional cognitive benefits, such as greater depth of processing

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | English in Les Rives du Léman | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.

Lots of potential. Simply set the date in the future, write your message and add your email address then Submit. Lots of amazing uses eg as part of INSET training with staff to get them to set goals they would like to achieve after a certain time (Letter to self). Could be used by students for goal setting in a subject or a time capsule for Year 7 students on entry! What else?
