Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For

Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it

Mural.ly is a new tool (still in beta, launched last week) that is a cross between Prezi and mind maps. It’s easy to use and share what you create (perfect for most students, teachers, and parents) but the real beauty of mural.ly is in its lack of structure.

Nice and catchy way to get your students to defend and describe ideas... it can be turned into a highly powerful communicative environment... make students describe their Mural.ly in front of the class!

The power of noticing in second language acquisition

The power of noticing in second language acquisition | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

"What is attention, and what role does it play in foreign language learning? That’s the question that this little language note will explore," says Gavin, graduate students in a language-related field at the University of Hawai'i.  

 

After reviewing some of the research on noticing in second language acquisition (Schmidt) and examining four key ideas, he concludes:

"Learning another language exercises our attention brain muscles. And learning to achieve a higher quality of attention in our daily life through daily language exercise can’t be a bad thing…right?"

 

Interesting for teachers as an argument to encourage language learners, but also for information about the key concept of noticing.
