This is a great tool which matches up YouTube music videos to lyrics. Just enter the name of a singer you like then select a song. You'll see the lyrics appear beside the song. Great way to improve your language skills.

Advent of Google means we must rethink our approach to education

Teaching in an environment where the internet and discussion are allowed in exams would be different. The ability to find things out quickly and accurately would become the predominant skill. The ability to discriminate between alternatives, then put facts together to solve problems would be critical. AThat's a skill that future employers would admire immensely.

Reinventing schools -  today's educational challenge -  from TED 2013 prizewinner Sugata Mitra.

William Hanna's curator insight, June 18, 2013 8:25 AM

Wow!  Allowing internet access and discussion during exams???  As bizarre as it sounds, I think it's awesome!  Instead of teaching our kids to memorize everything, we could teach them to THINK!  A good thing indeed.

"[...] Put another way, emotion is the English teacher’s entry point for literary exploration and for the development of the high-level skills outlined in the Common Core State Standards, which have been adopted in 45 states. Unfortunately, the authors of the standards are not particularly interested in emotional risk taking but rather in the avoidance of political risk. It is a rather bloodless effort.  [...]"

"Learners need lots of listening practice, no doubt about that. Practice makes perfect as they say, so the logic follows that the more learners are exposed to aural input, the better they’ll get at understanding it. Not just any input though."

I've just stumbled upon this picture while reading on the 'free VS gratis' debate : not that much related to the actual topic, but I like the resulting "double" game/pun  -comes from Wikipedia's article 'Gratis VS libre'  :o)

Why I don't want an IWB (Interactive Whiteboard) | Teaching EFL and more specifically business English to university students. | Scoop.it

Recently, I have been asked quite  few times about IWBs and which ones are best etc. My usual answer is 'none' and then I have to explain, so I thought, instead of explaining I would write this post so that I could point people towards each time they ask.

The 'Preposition poster' has learners visualise different places and movements towards places, thus helping them locate people and actions in English.

The poster does remind of classic -and effective- diagrams from ESL textbooks.

A few of these rules may seem easy and logical to English learners while the others are more difficult to grasp : sticking this infographic on the classroom wall may remind them of the rules :)

"[...] La première chose qui m’a été demandée, et la seule que je traiterai dans ce billet, c’est « est-ce que les MOOCs constituent une rupture vis à vis du e-learning tel qu’il se pratique depuis 20 ans« . Car oui, on n’a pas attendu les MOOCs pour pratiquer le e-learning, diplômer des apprenants entièrement à distance, expérimenter les modèles tout en ligne, hybride, présence renforcée, etc.[...]"
