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."

(Im)Material girls living in (im)material worlds: Identity curation through time and space | NWP Digital Is | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"NWP is proud to be a supporter of Global Conversations in Literacy Research, a free and open-access series of webinars with literacy researchers world-wide.

 

The Digital Is community might be particularly interested in the next webinar, January 20 at 3:00 p.m. ET, with Julia Davies from the University of Sheffield. Julia's presentation draws on a project looking at the role of Facebook in the lives of a group of fashion conscious trainee hairdressers living in a city in the north of England. 

 

The research has an ethnographic texture; Dr. Davies, shared in the young women’s Facebook spaces and took part in their conversations. Facebook was the lens through which she viewed their lives and through which she traced interactions and events."

sarspri's insight:

The National Writing Project (NWP) is a fine bunch of folks, documenting all kinds of ways to express oneself (both teachers and students) via text and in combination with other digital modes of expression and communication.
