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."

Listening Plus – A Social Approach to Learning English Online

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

"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."

This could be nice for language teacher training: have trainees make and request recordings and evaluate the outcomes.
