I'll try it out again, Nik, and get back. Maybe I did something wrong. Thanks for your feedback.

It'll get better. These things usually do. On another note, I just made the best cup of coffee!

I'm Remy and I work at the company that invented and developed Knowble. We think it's great that so many of you appreciate Knowble and making the effort to give feedback.

To date we haven't found a proper method to make phrasal verbs work properly. We do consider adding phrasal verbs, but the sheer endless combinations of verbs, context and meaning make this a very though nut to crack. Also; Knowble is designed as a supplementary learners aid instead of an alternative language course. That's why we focus on what Knowble does best; improving vocabulary by reading news articles.

This free version of Knowble offers a rudimentary pre-test. We have developed specific versions with better pre-tests for our clients, such as publishers. These versions also include target word lists, specific resources and translations from dictionaries (instead of Google translation used in the free version). In the paid version of Knowble teachers can also view the progress of individual students.

Still, we hope that our free version of Knowble will continue to help people improve their English in a pleasant way.

Keep your feedback coming!

Math Coach's Corner: Three Engaging Math Apps

Math Coach's Corner: Three Engaging Math Apps | Language,literacy and numeracy in all Training and assessment | Scoop.it

"I recently stumbled across a great group of math apps for the iPad and iPhone from Motion Math.  Many of their apps feature free versions with the option to pay for additional levels.  The app that got me hooked was Hungry Fish.  It's incredibly engaging addictive practice for composing and decomposing numbers.  The fish wants to eat a target number.  The player feeds the fish by combining bubbles containing numbers that make that sum."

- the image above is a great encapsulation of learning as it stands now for many, the mix between ‘have-to’, ‘need-to’, and ‘want-to’, nicely grouped into School, Work, and Life. Thankfully there is little in my learning that is ‘have-to’, a little of ‘need-to’ and plenty of ‘want-to’ – perhaps this is why I like what I do and have a passion be better at it?

Motivation for learning; Life, work or school?

Video-How Youth Learn: A Ned Talk

"If you're a teenage speaker brought in to address a crowd of teachers on the subject of how you and your peers learn best . . . what are you going to say? "I — have no clue," Ned Cephalus nervously says from behind the podium. "I'm just a very average teenage brain"—complete with backpack, zits, and a journal he keeps about school. Yet in this funny and fast-paced "NED talk," Ned knocks out eight powerful conditions of learning that can change everything for students."

What better way to discover how learners learn best but to ask a learner. This graphically engaging and funny video where Ned Cephalus shares the eight powerful conditions of learning gives "food for thought" and should get you thinking about why it may be important to understand how learners learn best.

Adam Atodl's curator insight, February 6, 2013 6:48 PM

Funny, but insightfu - and I love these drawing animations :-)
