English verb form generator | Grammaring

English verb form generator | Grammaring | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it
Shona Whyte's insight:

This looks neat, but I'm struggling to see an application for language learners - maybe to check written work?  The generator gives the names of English tense/aspect combinations and one decontextualised example for each.  Maybe the link to more information about each verb form will be more helpful.

Gets rid of everything else on your screen so you can concentrate on what you are (supposed to be) doing.  Or your audience can.

Voyant Tools: Reveal Your Texts

Voyant Tools: Reveal Your Texts | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

This is a very interesting tool for analysing text and word frequency in text. It enables you to create your own mini corpus and see how words are used in context.

Randy Rebman's curator insight, December 15, 2012 7:54 PM

This tool allows you to easily export the concordance lines into a text file. Provided the text was either online or in a text file, it also makes identifying vocabulary words in texts easier. As a corpus tool on the web, I find the option of being able to upload multiple texts into the corpus one of the benefits of the site. But this tool is still in Beta mode, so there may still be some kinks with it that need worked out.

OneLook Reverse Dictionary

OneLook Reverse Dictionary | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Nik Peachey:

The OneLook reverse dictionary is a great tool to get students thinking about how they explain what words mean. Unlike most dictionaries which gives you the meaning of a word, this one will give you the word as long as you can give the correct maning. This is a great skill to develop as a language learner.

It does work with Mac, I've just checked. It might be a problem of the browser, not the app.

Curate Your Newsletter by Dragging and Dropping Your Selected Articles: FlashIssue

This might be a useful tool for learners to assemble their own portfolio of online work, or for presenting the results of a collaborative project.

Robin Good: FlashIssue is a web app which allows you to easily assemble a professional-looking newsletter, by bringing together your best content as well as any article available online.

FlashIssue can read your site RSS feed or for that matter any RSS feed you provide it with and you can pick and select from the stream of items in the feed the ones you want to include in your newsletter.

You can search for any topic via an integrated Google Search or provide the URL of a specific web page you want to integrate.

Once done, you can personalize the newsletter with your banner, text introduction and footer and then send it to all of your contacts in Gmail, or to your subscribers lists inside MailChimp, ConstantContact and other mail delivery services.


N.B.: A Google Chrome plugin also allows you to easily clip and grab any content directly from any web page and easily integrate it inside your curated newsletter.

dotSUB The Easiest Way to Add Subtitles to Videos

dotSUB The Easiest Way to Add Subtitles to Videos | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Yuli Asencion has flagged up dotSUB, an excellent video subtitling platform.  It has a nice built-in editor which allows you to create subtitles for your videos (upload or link to open-source clips).  Once you have saved a copy, you or others can translate these subtitles into other languages.  Useful, therefore, both for teachers to prepare materials - a difficult segment that learners will have difficulty following unaided, perhaps - and as a learning activity, if the learners subtitle the videos themselves.
