I've just thought of asking every student to reorder the verbs in this chart (one page only -otherwise they might get lost), according to what they think is their own personal frequency of use. Then, they should create a sentence for the 5 most/least used ones : first they'd choose a topic, so that they might relate the 10 sentences with each other to create a (very) short story. Hmm... hope I'm being plain enough. Shall possibly refine the exercise instructions later on.

Nice verb list organized by frecuency.

Time Clauses - ENGAMES

Time Clauses - ENGAMES | Fun Lessons for Teaching English | Scoop.it
In time clauses it is important to understand that you cannot use WILL after certain conjunctions, even though you are referring to the future. And that is the whole trick. If you do this (not will do this), your English will be fine.

Connectivism as a Digital Age Learning Theory

George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. Their proposed learning theory has issued a debate over whether it is a learning theory or instructional theory or merely a pedagogical view.

I will have to include this in my Learning theories module, perhaps.

Lara N. Madden's curator insight, November 18, 2013 12:43 PM

This might be my new research topic. Very interesting.

Paige Paul's curator insight, September 15, 2015 7:52 PM

Topic 2- This is an interesting piece that explores how connectivism should be categorized.  Sometimes I think people in the education world can get too caught up in labels and buzzwords, and forget that ultimately what you call it doesn't matter as much as whether or not it promotes student learning.
