10 Free Resources For Learning Nearly Any Language

10 Free Resources For Learning Nearly Any Language | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it

Aaron G Myers says: "I would like to share ten free resources that I have used or newly discovered that will help you learn nearly any language that you  wish to learn.  I don’t see any of these as a silver bullet or as capable in and of themselves in taking you to fluency in your target language.  I don’t really believe in silver bullets!  They can all be a part of building an overall personal language learning program that will lead to success."

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!

sarspri's curator insight, April 15, 2013 1:55 PM

Another addition to the mind mapping toolkit

Looks like standalone materials which would work for self-study if it's the right level for you.

Ready-made video and worksheet with teacher's version; could be used regularly or as a one-off.
