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

Sharing iPad eBooks with Colleagues, Pupils and Parents | August 2014 Blog | English in Les Rives du Léman | Scoop.it

With the latest update to Book Creator allowing the user to export as video, I have created this short guide to a few options for sharing the eBooks made on iPads. This focuses on Book Creator 

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/book-creator-for-ipad-create/id442378070?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4 

 and My Story https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/my-story-book-maker-for-kids/id449232368?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  but there are other options.

Finally! I'll make some teachers very, very happy with this update. Book Creator is already such a powerful app and this was the one thing we always found frustrating. Fixed!

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?

Popcorn Maker

Popcorn Maker | English in Les Rives du Léman | Scoop.it
This is a truly amazing piece of free software. You will need to create a username and password to save work (unless you already have a Persona account one from Mozilla's Open Badges work). Basically, it allows you to upload either a YouTube Video, SoundCloud sound file, Vimeo video or still image and via layers: Add text, images, popups, Googlemaps, links, create pauses, crop the original video and other things too. All of these can be dragged to begin at different stages of the video. Once saved, you can embed the code in a Mahara or Moodle page. You can also send a link to your completed "popcorn" that others can see (good for Show My Homework links then) Am sure there is lots more here. lets hope it is around for a while

Is technology a silver bullet for language teaching and learning?

Is technology a silver bullet for language teaching and learning? | English in Les Rives du Léman | Scoop.it
Whereas using tech may have once meant a weekly trip to a computer lab, it can now involve anything, from Facebook and Twitter to podcasts and videos in the classroom. The question is: should teachers try to evolve their teaching to fit with the latest gadgets, or should they stick to their old ways?

If the teacher does not know the technology, he/she can't apply the pedagogy ... Technology is great to teach languages, I think a great software adapted to individual needs will substitute the teacher of languages in near future..
