Lingo Hut: Free online foreign language lessons

"Free online foreign language lessons"

 

Shona Whyte:

Suspicious as usual, I checked out this site.  Not clear who is behind it, but it does seem to be completely free and the sound etc works fine.  I checked English for French beginners (leçon de Anglaise (sic)) - behaviourist approach with exercises for listening and repeating, matching phrases with their translation equivalents, and chances to test yourself.  Not my first choice for learning a language, but it may suit some.

Discover Your Capacity For Empathy With Poverty Simulations

Discover Your Capacity For Empathy With Poverty Simulations | Games, Simulations, Virtual Environment for learning | Scoop.it
With 50 million Americans living in poverty, odds are you know someone affected. A poverty simulation can help you gain empathy and inspire you to help.

 

A good poverty simulation though, can help you gain true empathy for the millions of people who suffer from poverty right in your community. In-depth poverty simulations will force you to live on your own for several days without access to your funds. You’ll sleep outside, wear donated clothing, and try to make enough money just to feed yourself by trying to find odd jobs or begging on the streets. You’ll also do service outreach for people who are in the very situation you’re trying to replicate. Ultimately, it doesn’t truly give you a picture of how terrifying poverty can be, because you’ll know that at the end of the project, you’ll get to sleep safely in your own bed (which will probably feel like one of the world’s best places to sleep after several days on the streets). But it certainly will help you access levels of empathy that may inspire you to make a real long-term difference through community outreach.

Justin Marquis: What if Badges Replaced Grades?

Justin Marquis: What if Badges Replaced Grades? | Games, Simulations, Virtual Environment for learning | Scoop.it

"While there is some legitimate criticism of the random application of limited  gamification elements in traditional educational settings,  perhaps this is one possible exception to that rule. Considering a switch from  traditional letter or percentage grades to badges signifying achievement could  open up many possibilities for a more fine-grained tracking of student  progress, address some of the criticism regarding schools not teaching concrete  skills, and motivating students to learn."
