Voyant Tools: Reveal Your Texts

Voyant Tools: Reveal Your Texts | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

This is a very interesting tool for analysing text and word frequency in text. It enables you to create your own mini corpus and see how words are used in context.

Randy Rebman's curator insight, December 15, 2012 7:54 PM

This tool allows you to easily export the concordance lines into a text file. Provided the text was either online or in a text file, it also makes identifying vocabulary words in texts easier. As a corpus tool on the web, I find the option of being able to upload multiple texts into the corpus one of the benefits of the site. But this tool is still in Beta mode, so there may still be some kinks with it that need worked out.

How Texting Is Changing Your Grammar

How Texting Is Changing Your Grammar | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

Now that text talk is widely accepted as a legitimate form of communication, we are left wondering: Will text talk become our main form of communication in the future? Will the widespread use of text talk negatively impact the way we communicate? Or are we engaged in the creation of a colorful new language every time we text?

David's curator insight, January 4, 2013 1:24 PM

My thoughts:

This article talks about how texting and the new media age may not be as bad of a thing as it is hyped up to be. They have done studies that show the pros and cons. This article shows how although we are using shortcuts to write it is just a way of us adapting; yet people still continue to use proper grammar more often than not.

The Future of Education: Creating Your Own Schools

The Future of Education: Creating Your Own Schools | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

We are entering the era of big data. As the cost of digital devices and technologies continues to decrease, trillions of gigabytes of data will be generated from sensor networks, mobile and context-aware devices, and online interactions. The increased volume, velocity, and variety of data will be so vast that basic information-filtering tools and practices will no longer suffice.

Combining Face-to-Face and Online Education

Combining Face-to-Face and Online Education | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

I have found that many who dream of online learning somehow imagine a virtual school where the teachers are no more than those who load up the assignments and set up the learning management system. But by taking actual teaching out of the distance learning equation, we are dooming distance learning to mere correspondence course status. And it has the potential to be far greater than any model we have thus far imagined, but only if the tools are used properly and if the balance of offline interaction and online learning are aligned.

10 Reasons Why I Want My Students to Blog

10 Reasons Why I Want My Students to Blog | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

First of all, blogging is writing, 21st-century style, plain and simple. Blogging constitutes a massive genre. It comes in many forms, addresses myriad topics, and can certainly range in quality. For my money (which usually means free), blogging provides the best venue for teaching student writing. As bloggers, young people develop crucial skills with language, tone their critical thinking muscles, and come to understand their relationship to the world.
