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.

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.

The Networking of Knowledge and Storytelling: David Weinberger for the Future of StoryTelling 2012

"Western culture's traditional system of knowledge is a stunning achievement," says author and Harvard Internet scholar David Weinberger at the outset of this thought-provoking video. "It made us the dominant species on the planet." But it was constructed as a series of stopping points: you asked a question, and you got an answer—on the page of a book or newspaper, say, or from an expert or a teacher. That system worked well when knowledge was put down on paper. Now knowledge lives on the hyperlinked Net, and links offer a never-ending invitation to go further, to know more. What are the implications of a future in which human knowledge is no longer a finite compendium of scholarly works but rather a limitless, intricately connected network of people, ideas, and works?"

A Complete EFL Teacher Training Course Online || Oregon | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

Shaping the Way We Teach English is a fantastic resource that I came across recently. The resource is similar to other online courses from colleges and universities. It's free and accessible through The Online Language Center of the University of Oregon and it is a pretty complete teacher training course that has videos , viewing tasks, transcripts, observation checklists and even recommended supplementary web based reading.

I watched the episode 12 about teaching very young learners before my interview. Gives an amazing summary which really helps interviewees to look more professional and knowledgeable

Eliademy could be your solution when you are looking to offer a course online, or maybe even only when you want to support your in-class activities with an online environment.

"According to a new survey report from the Pew Internet and American Life project, some 85% of American adults own a cell phone, and these mobile devices now play a central role in many aspects of their owners' lives. For many cell owners, their phone is an essential utility that they check frequently, keep close at all times, and would have trouble functioning without."
