The U.S. State Department Gets in the Education Game

The U.S. State Department Gets in the Education Game | Aiko's Choice of Teaching and Learning English | Scoop.it

"The U.S. State Department is jumping into the ed-tech world with an online game meant to help teach 'American English' to kids between the ages of 12-16 in more than 30 countries. Meant to provide players with a view of American life and culture different from the typical portrayal in movies, Trace Effects officially launches today. It’s part of a bigger effort from the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA) to revamp its website and materials to today’s technology, as well as offer an interactive tool to engage English learners abroad."

Tumblr is a web based social media platform that was designed to make it easier for people to share digital media with each other. Unlike Facebook and Twitter, where conversation is a common mode of communication, Tumblr is more about sharing content. It is a great resource and tool for people and professionals of every stripe. Teachers are finding it useful too. Here’s some of the ways they’re using it.

Personally, I have been using tumblr for intro to soico class to write my class journal. 
Tumblr is very easy to create personal blog, so it is very accessible for students. WP might be too hard (buf fun definitely!) for students.
