Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, September 3, 2013 4:47 AM

Interesting idea - this could be useful in EFL teaching or just for people who are reading in English as a second language and need a bit of help.

 

I tried it on the Adobe Connect website to see if it would demystify some of the 'Marketese' though, and it didn't help much! A sentence such as 'Powering mission-critical web conferencing solutions, end-to-end, on virtually any device' is full of everyday words which are being used in an unnecessarily obscure way. Which is why I'm in favour of simply writing in plain English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_english).

 

On that subject, I recently discovered the absolutely wonderful Simple English Wikipedia (http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page), which does just that.

This website is made for children that have a hard time understanding a word or sentence in the English language. By breaking down a word or difficult sentence into word that the child will be able to know.

John Dalziel's curator insight, May 18, 2013 5:09 PM

STEM Practitioners and/or Learners, business owners and others often need formulae for their work, study or personal needs.
FormulaSheet is a web-based service designed to help facilitate working with and remembering formulas. Registration is free and once complete provides users with their own virtual folder for their formulae.
Learners and scientists working on their own projects will appreciate the LaTeX interface for creating a formula which provides quick access to a number of often used characters and symbols.
FormulaSheet is a very specialised tool aimed at a specific group of individuals that’s free to use.

Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Based solely on the flowchart and definition offered, it appears that learner is assumed to have the ability to reflect upon completing the activity. I would believe if the activity is implemented using a problem-based approach in a small team environment where there are some guidance from a facilitator, would this concept of experiential learning be a more effective one.
