sarspri's insight:

A great example of Voicethread in action for speaking and listening with language learners.  Many of the prompts are structured as exam practice.  Students can record, but also hear examples by learners from all over the world.

Brandy Barter's curator insight, February 15, 2013 3:52 PM

Language learners from around the world can share their thoughts on English and culture with their world neighbors.

Listening Plus – A Social Approach to Learning English Online

Listening Plus – A Social Approach to Learning English Online | Internet 2013 |

"Our work demonstrates that an LMS can be matched with Web 2.0 tools to enhance students’ production and enable them to collectively share their findings and their learning paths. Thus ownership, audience, and availability of resources are taken into another dimension not institutionally bound, but collectively appropriated by the students with the facilitative guidance of an e-tutor.


The five-week online EFL course Listening Plus, devised by teachers at Casa Thomas Jefferson, a Binational Center in Brasilia, Brazil, was designed with a student-centered approach in which oral comprehension and production were enhanced through individual work. It was also designed in order not to lose sight of the essential elements in an educational setting of interaction and the group’s sense of belonging."
