Staying Private on the New Facebook [NYTimes tool kit]

Staying Private on the New Facebook [NYTimes tool kit] | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "Facebook insists it is up to you to decide how much you want others to see. And that is true, to some extent. But you cannot entirely opt out of Facebook searches. Facebook, however, does let you fine-tune who can see your “likes” and pictures, and, to a lesser extent, how much of yourself to expose to marketers.

Learning languages on the Web [list of links]

Learning languages on the Web [list of links] | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "To anyone who has ever used or heard about Rosetta Stone or Mocha Languages, it is clear how advances in technology have revolutionized language learning. The days of poring over conjugation tables and sifting through flashcards are over. It is now possible for the driven student to chat with native speakers via Skype, or submit their pronunciation of Arabic to collective critique on You-Tube; in this way one can become proficient or even fluent in the target language—the language one is learning to speak—without ever setting foot in the country where that language is spoken.

 

Those who fork over the money for the more sophisticated, fee-based learning tools see them as quite affordable compared to the high cost of college and university language courses. But more affordable still are the free, but lesser known learning tools found on the Web. The following pages contain a selective list of freely available Internet resources for students, scholars, and the general public."

Categories include Getting Started, Reference Tools, Broadcasts and Podcasts, TV as Teacher, and Less Commonly Taught Languages.
