sarspri's insight:

Not the most advanced use of the Internet for learning, by far, but still useful -- find the right time, the right place.  Find the student who thrives on this and stuff and set it up as an out of class individualized (or collaborative) student project.

One of the perks of social media is finding new vocabulary tools! Recently, I stumbled upon Lingro, a website that helps you define words on other websites. Sound confusing?

Harry Potter Book Project in Edmodo: A Collaborative Initiative Between Students from Egypt and Canada by Ayat Tawel

Harry Potter Book Project in Edmodo: A Collaborative Initiative Between Students from Egypt and Canada by Ayat Tawel | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

[excerpt]: "With an increasing acceptance of children using internet for academic purposes, comes apprehension pertaining to their safety and well-being when online. While as educators we want children to become more « net savvy », we need to temper this with precautions to keep them safe on the web. 

 

This session will demonstrate how educators Ayat Tawel and Bernadette Rego successfully established using Edmodo, a free Learning management system, as a place for students from Canada and Egypt to meet and discuss questions enhancing their reading skills using the popular book « Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone ». We will demonstrate how Edmodo and other web 2.0 tools can be used to protect the students' online identity and communication while creating an enriching learning atmosphere."

Listen to audio descriptions of paintings and painters, then choose from a list of answers.

Shona Whyte's curator insight, April 8, 2013 10:08 AM

Nice use of online tools to create listening exercises.  Learners could do this too for speaking practice with the goal of creating quizzes for other learners.

ANVILL | National Virtual Language Lab [from CASLS]

ANVILL | National Virtual Language Lab [from CASLS] | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"ANVILL (A National Virtual Language Lab) is a speech-based toolbox for language teachers. Like the language lab console of old, it's focused on the practice of oral/aural language, but at its core are very modern web-based audio and video tools from duber dot com and the University of Oregon: Voiceboards, LiveChat, and Quizzes and Surveys. Our newest tool, TCast, allows teachers to record and place audio or video files anywhere in a lesson--in 3 easy steps. Each of these tools really opens up the scope and sequence of lessons centered around spoken language tasks."

Pinterest es un tablón de anuncios en línea, virtual, pero colaborativo, social. Visualmente muy atractivo, te permite crear y organizar todo lo que encuentres en la red para que le pongas chinchetas a todo lo que te interese, de ahí el nombre: pin + interest.
