YouTube hosts a treasure trove of excellent educational content that speaks to the learning needs of a wide variety of audiences. Some of this content is created by dedicated teachers and educators who took it upon themselves to promote learning beyond the traditional walls of their classrooms. For instance, in the area of English language learning, there are numerous language teachers (including EFL and ESL) who have set their own YouTube channels and provide video lessons covering almost everything related to language learning. Today's post highlights some of these channels. The purpose is to provide language teachers with relevant video resources that they can use in their instruction in class. Check out the list below and share with us your feedback in our Facebook page.

Very interesting topic written attractively and with great content. I believe that
the relevance of this issue will generate more author's posts, which I will follow
assiduously. For those who speaks Portuguese or Spanish I also recommend the

Brad Merrick's curator insight, November 2, 2016 4:50 PM
Being able to listen with focus and empathy is key, whereby those in our care feel supported and heard. In a world where everyone is so busy and time often seems to be the commodity that we have the least of, this diagram really serves to remind us that we need to listen constructively, suggest skilfully and try to understand the emotion of those we are engaging with in all that we do. Purposeful listening rather than just hearing is key.

How to Run an Effective Brainstorming Session and Stimulate... | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
Creative ideas can help you drive your business to success. Brian Tracy discusses how to run a brainstorming session and encourage creative thinking.

 

The aim of the brainstorming session should be to generate the most ideas possible within a specific period of time.

 

===> An effective brainstorming session will last anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, and 30 minutes is usually ideal. <===

Amazing

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 6, 2014 6:01 PM

Teachers can start using Hangouts simply by setting up a Google+ page and signing up for the Hangout feature. They can conduct virtual classrooms at a number of places; it allows a teacher to teach up to 10 classrooms at the same time. It makes classes interactive and students can ask questions whenever they want. They can use it to connect their classroom with other classrooms or to connect their students with experts across the world, providing them with connected learning experiences. There are many ways in which teachers and students can derive benefits from using Hangouts in the classroom.
