Lots of titles available in a variety of formats.  Some language errors in the book descriptions but the actual texts I looked at seem OK.  Copyright?

My colleague Geoff Sockett at the University of Strasbourg has been looking at this as part of informal learning http://prismelangues.u-strasbg.fr/uploads/media/Eurocall_handout_01.pdf  Interesting and important topic - what are learners getting out of this type of exposure to English, and is there a role for teaching to help them get more?

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.

Learning English Online : Freiburg University of Education

Learning English Online : Freiburg University of Education | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

This new English language learning portal has been developed by a team at the Pädagogische Hochschule of Freiburg as a complement to the state of Baden-Würtemburg's school programmes (level A1-A2; there is also a German version of the site).

 

It offers a traditional language course (based on the imaginary family so beloved of school textbooks), then additional sections on the four language skills and  language areas (vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation), some cultural options plus two extra sections called "magazine" and "videos" with links to external websites like the BBC.

 

A lot of different sections and links to explore, and more material to come.  I'd be interested to hear opinions ...
