MarginNote Reader also eliminates the need for users to lug around heavy, bulky textbooks and notebooks. All of their data is ready for them in one place, and users can organize and reorganize their notes with the swipe of a finger!

the psychological status of a student in a teaching and learning situation is definitely proven to be an essential criteria for the success and efficiency of the students outcome, therefore the more the student is working in a non-stress environment, the better his evolution will be in terms of learning quality.

The challenge from the teaching side will always be to come out with a balanced configuration between serious and game!

Getting to deeper levels of knowledge is vital for true learning to occur.  The Teaching for Understanding Framework from the work of Harvard's Project Zero is a model teachers can use to do just that.  Engagement is ensured when students are able to use what they know in meaningful ways to demonstrate understanding.  

 

Teaching for Understanding framework is just loose enough for teachers to customize it and make it their own.

VOICE - ELF sound archive

VOICE - ELF sound archive | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

In the early 21st century, English in the world finds itself in an “unstable equilibrium”: On the one hand, the majority of the world's English users are not native speakers of the language, but use it as an additional language, as a convenient means for communicative interactions that cannot be conducted in their mother tongues. On the other hand, linguistic descriptions have as yet predominantly been focusing on English as it is spoken and written by its native speakers.

 

VOICE seeks to redress the balance by providing a sizeable, computer-readable corpus of English as it is spoken by this non-native speaking majority of users in different contexts. These speakers use English successfully on a daily basis all over the world, in their personal, professional or academic lives. We therefore see them primarily not as language learners but as language users in their own right. It is therefore clearly worth finding out just how they use the language. This is exactly what VOICE seeks to make possible.

 

The VOICE project as such ran from 2005 to 2013, see News


Via Shona Whyte
nicolaperry's insight:

Too many learners still think they have to aim for native speaker models. Too many teachers are not aware that the standard English they teach is not the only acceptable English. These recordings were collected as part of a major research project into International English / English as a Lingua Franca (ELF).

Dyslexia for Teachers of EFL

Dyslexia for Teachers of EFL | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

Foreign language teachers often lack sufficient understanding of the nature of dyslexia and the difficulties it causes in foreign language learning and are not familiar with the relevant teaching techniques and methods to further the language learning processes of dyslexic students. Therefore the preparation of teacher training materials for this target group of language learners is both timely and highly needed.
