Typing Speed Monitor

Typing Speed Monitor | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

There are plenty of online programs that learners can use to practice typing skills, test their typing speed, and test their typing accuracy.They don't however evaluate typing skills while users are going about their daily web browsing or word processing activities.

 

Typing Speed Monitor is a Google Chrome extension that will track how fast users type and what keys they use most frequently.If users do a lot of writing online, Typing Speed Monitor is one way to get accurate feedback on their typing proficiency in real-world settings.

 

Typing Speed Monitor could be a good way to find out how well learners actually type in realistic scenarios - as part of their ICT functional skills.

Group Dynamics in the Language Classroom


Global Webinar: 21st and 28th August 2012, 08.00 - 09.00 and 21.00 - 22.00 (BST)

 

Speaker: Jill Hadfield

 

'My group just doesn't gel!' Does this complaint, (from answers to a questionnaire to teachers in language schools in many different countries) strike a chord with you? Have you experienced either the joy of working with a harmonious and cohesive group of students or the difficulty of trying to work with a fractious and divided group? If so, this webinar is for you!

 

In the present day EFL classroom, where pairwork and groupwork are the norm, harmonious relationships and a positive atmosphere within the classroom have become increasingly important for the success of courses. Research has shown that a positive and cohesive atmosphere in the group has a beneficial effect on morale and motivation and can significantly affect learning. But can something as intangible as 'atmosphere' be created? This talk will explore some practical ways in which group atmosphere and relationships can be enhanced.
