Possibilité de présenter des images avec du texte. Avantage de pouvoir ajouter des images HD qui sont ensuite navigables dans la présentation. Avec un clic souris le texte s'efface et si l'image dépasse le cadre, on peut se déplacer dans toute sa surface

HG Académie de Rennes's curator insight, February 10, 2014 1:50 AM

Un logiciel en ligne pour monter, raconter des histoires en 7 moments clés maximum. Pour chacun de ces moments, vous pouvez intégrer une image ou une vidéo et un texte de 140 caractères maximum. Les contraintes éditoriales sont intéressantes pour forcer les élèves à organiser, à structurer leur récit ou leur reportage. On pourra ainsi leur demander de raconter un évènement historique en trois moment clés : une situation initiale, un évènement perturbateur et une situation finale. A tester !

Justement Anthony Lozac'h a testé pour vous. A lire ici : http://sco.lt/7H4SPJ

un twitter diaporama like pour une belle interface

 

visiblement une approche échangiste qui pourrait plaire aux jeunes

grosses limites : la nécessité d'avoir un compte par élève + réduit en nombre de caractères par page et nécessitant de charger des images

 

bilan : ne peut suffire à une vraie activité : nécessite d'être amélioré (visiblement beta modifiée en septembre 14)

The future of education

Videogames, digital pens, holograms and tactile learning platforms could all become the norm as education looks set to change dramatically over the next 30 years. With technology dominating in and outside the classroom, interconnectivity is likely to play a key role in helping students adapt to the changing world around them

As a lot of you know, I think that infographics are a great, visual way of communicating grammar points or vocabulary chunks to learners. In today’s post, I’d like to share with you this inforgraphic by Grammar.net to introduce verbs + prepositions and those ‘dreaded’ phrasal verbs!

Take a look at these great teaching and learning resources.

Tonya Ward Singer's curator insight, January 23, 2014 9:51 AM

Often when it seems an ELL doesn't know prepositions, the real root of the "error"  has to do with a phrasal verb.    Bottom line:  English is complex.  The better we understand our own language, the better we can help others  learn and use it in meaningful contexts.
