How to Make an Infographic

Hello, World! Lots of my friends have been asking me how I make the infographics. I find it very simple. But, I admit that that simple mindset is after hundreds of hours playing with Piktochart. I ...

Hi Kimberly! Thanks for thumbs up!
Also we ask teachers to fill a survey that could help us to improve. Maybe you could find a few minutes to fill it yourself and pass to other teachers who use it? Thanks!

The Utility and Drawbacks of Translation Apps || New York Times

The Utility and Drawbacks of Translation Apps || New York Times | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

[Excerpt] "In Douglas Adams’s “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” the hero sticks a so-called Babel fish in his ear and can understand everything said to him in any language. Today’s apps for language translation try to accomplish the same thing. While not as accurate or instantaneous, they are nevertheless useful and greatly improved from just a couple of years ago. And you don’t have to put anything slimy in your ear."

What is Linguistics? || Univ of Sheffield

What is Linguistics? || Univ of Sheffield | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "AllAboutLinguistics.com was created by first-year linguistics students at the University of Sheffield, supported by staff in the School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics. 

 The website formed part of the students assessment, after they completed a course called Introduction to Linguistics, and it aims to share the knowledge they gained from this module with anyone outside the University who is interested in language and its study - especially A-Level students thinking of going on to study linguistics at University. We asked students to build the site because as beginners in linguistics themselves, they were in a good position to help explain the discipline to you. 

By exploring this site, you will:

discover the discipline of linguistics and find out what linguists dodeepen your knowledge of language study – perhaps giving you a head start on your English Language courseworkgain an insight into the varied range of opportunities a degree in English Language and Linguistics can offerWe hope you will enjoy your journey into linguistics as you explore the site."

Take a Minute to Collect Your Thoughts with Evernote - ProfHacker [Chronicle of Higher Ed]

Take a Minute to Collect Your Thoughts with Evernote - ProfHacker [Chronicle of Higher Ed] | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

During a Q&A after a reading at Duke, Jonathan Safran Foer described his writing process as “more an act of collecting than one of genesis; something created from nothing.” How did I remember that quote? I didn’t, initially, but I did take notes on my iPhone throughout the evening and then emailed them straight to Evernote. When I started writing this post, I ran a search in Evernote for “writing” and “collecting” and bam!—I had my opener!

Give VOICE to your cartoons | Life Feast [EFL blogger from Brazil] | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "I've always loved using comics in the classroom, and now it's become even more fun with the possibility to add audio to my comics strips. http://www.pixton.com/

 

This was my first trial with the aim to welcome my students to our EDMODO group. After creating your comic strip you can publish it on a website, like I'm doing right now, or by clicking on the Edmodo icon, this way it's automatically attached to your message to an edmodo group of your choice.

To listen to the recordings, hover the mouse over the SPEECH BUBBLES and click on the PLAY button."

Alessandra B. Bassanello's curator insight, February 13, 2013 8:57 AM

We worked once with one of our classes using Pixton, and it really enriched the experience. One of my students started a story and then another one would come and write the next "chapter" and add a new character. It was language oriented (they had to write in Portuguese) and a nice experience for those who love to use technology for a different kind of assignment.

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.

 

The latest of its frequent changes to the site’s privacy settings was made in December. Facebook is nudging each of its billion subscribers to review them."

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.

Via Annet Smith
sarspri's insight:

Tools, tools, tools -- so many lists, so little time.  And, it's not enough to find a tool, but rather in knowing how how, when, and why to use it.  

 

Still, everyone who is just embarking on an exploration of what's out there!

 

This set was compiled using yet another tool -- Symbaloo (see image) -- which gives visual access via icons rather than a long text-based list.
