Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 13, 4:46 AM

la necesidad de hablar diversos idiomas para poder vivir en una sociedad global ha generado el desarrollo de traductores en tiempo real que prácticamente eliminan, sino reducen, la necesidad de ir a una academia o instituto a aprenderlos. El traductor de Skype es un ejemplo claro de ello.

6 Key Benefits Of Mind Mapping - Edudemic

6 Key Benefits Of Mind Mapping - Edudemic | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it
When I talk to people about mind mapping, I usually find myself facing one of two reactions: The person I’m speaking with either LOVES mind maps, or pretty much has no idea what they are or what they could be used for. We’ve discussed mind maps occasionally in the past, but I recently stumbled on …

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.

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.
