Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

Great options here... I think group works realy well you can monitor who's there and what they are posting.. So far, my students are learning how to us e it. they are sort of shy now.. But I think it's important to use this tool and help them connect with the world practicing in a safe environtment. They will learn how to use this cool properly to communicate and be better EFL students.. :)

Return to Childhood Dreams at #SL12B

Return to Childhood Dreams at #SL12B | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Returning to the Dreams Dome
For SL12B i decided to bring back the Childhood Dreams Dome in part because many new friends never got a chance to see it, and also because i was interested to see how i would tackle the project now that i can use Mesh, better scripting and Experience Tools.

Before you simply read and clicked signs to get the story. This time story pops up as you walk around, so there is no clicking needed.

As for rebuilding all the models in mesh rather than prims, some stuff is more detailed and how i originally envisioned them to be. Other stuff is pretty much the same as it was since i didn’t want it to be to different from the original. While the build does not push the limits of Second Life content creation, the new Experience Tools allows the story to take centre stage.

Anyways i hope everyone who visits has a great time. Happy 12th Anniversary Second Life and i look forward to the coming years as there is still plenty to explore and do there.

The Pronunciation Poem

Here is some pronunciation.
Ration never rhymes with nation,
Say prefer, but preferable,
Comfortable and vegetable.
B must not be heard in doubt,
Debt and dumb both leave it out.
In the words psychology,
Psychic, and psychiatry,
You must never sound the p.
Psychiatrist you call the man
Who cures the complex, if he can.
In architect, chi is k.
In arch it is the other way.

Common European Framework of Reference for Languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Common European Framework of Reference for Languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment, abbreviated as CEFR or CEF, is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe and, increasingly, in other countries (for example, Colombia and the Philippines).

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment,[1] abbreviated as CEFR or CEF, is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe and, increasingly, in other countries (for example, Colombia and the Philippines). It was put together by the Council of Europe as the main part of the project "Language Learning for European Citizenship" between 1989 and 1996. Its main aim is to provide a method of learning, teaching and assessing which applies to all languages in Europe. In November 2001, a European Union Council Resolution recommended using the CEFR to set up systems of validation of language ability.

Second language acquisition and manageable learning - Craig Thaine - Cambridge Conversations

Second language acquisition and manageable learning - Craig Thaine - Cambridge Conversations | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
There are two main theories of Second Language Acquisition (SLA):

Processability theory
This theory states the language processor in our brains acquires language items in a certain developmental order. Processability theory suggests learners have a kind of internal syllabus allowing them to learn some language items before others. This means that trying to teach a language form before learners are ready for it could result in the learners being unable to acquire the form. At the same time, learners will produce a range of incorrect variants while trying to use the most complicated form before they’re ready (for example: ‘What she seen?’ instead of ‘What has she seen?’). Processability theory appreciates the fact that learners will follow different developmental trajectories, since their internal syllabi vary. At the same time, it is interesting to note that learners with different L1 backgrounds tend to learn in a similar order in this area.

Complexity Theory
Complexity Theory states language learners do not process language in a computational way. Language learning is dynamic and involves constant change, with a variety of influences – but what does this mean in a classroom environment?

Each learner is different and has different language needs.
Each learner’s interlanguage is different (and often surprising).
Learning is not a neat, step by step process.
Learners can often take one step forward and two steps back as they adapt and restructure their interlanguage.
Together, the two theories provide quite a full picture of language learning.

Telling stories, discussion, personal experiences, and role-play are just some of the activities teachers use to develop students’ speaking skills.  All these activities help with language practice, but how can we actually improve students’ speaking skills?

El ABC del Aprendizaje Basado en Competencias

El ABC del Aprendizaje Basado en Competencias | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
¿Qué es una competencia?

A partir del análisis de diferentes autores, Miguel Ángel López (2013) define una competencia como un saber en ejecución; es decir:

La capacidad de movilizar varios recursos de pensamiento para hacer frente a diversas situaciones sean profesionales, escolares o de la vida cotidiana.

En este sentido, las competencias ponen en acción el conocimiento del individuo, las maneras de realizar una determinada tarea y las actitudes frente a ésta.
