One in five American adults uses the internet only on smartphones | TeachingFrench | Scoop.it
In the West, people with limited or no access to the internet are at an even bigger disadvantage.

FrenchTalk's insight:

Obviously, Technology is the major Information tool nowadays. Living without internet is like running with sandals.

This is an important article, because it demonstrates with actual numbers and facts that mobile is where it's at. Not because it's cool, but because of its accessibility and ease to obtain. Read this!

Eileen Snover's curator insight, April 4, 2015 10:40 AM

For those of us who are "older" (over 35), we have lived through the transformation that the Internet has had and is having upon our society, and our world. Those of us who have lived through the inception of the personal computer, the Internet, and the growth and magnitude of cellphone usage, need to 'wake up and smell the coffee' or risk being left behind, just as our parents' generation was left behind as the workplace changed from the previous experience of one company/job for life, to the expectation of 7-8 jobs during one's lifetime.

Wax poetic about all that is lost in personal contact and connection all you want, but the Internet is here to stay. Technology is here to stay. People have changed the way they interact with the world. We need to adapt to survive, or we will be left behind.

Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds

Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds | TeachingFrench | Scoop.it

These great-looking word clouds are super quick to generate - simply copy and paste your chosen vocab into the 'create' screen on www.wordle.net then press Alt + PrntSc at the same time on your keyboard, paste into PowerPoint and crop/resize as you wish.  You can also right-click and select Save Picture As ... to make a separate picture file of your Wordle. 

 

Also, if you install CutePDF you can make your Wordle into a pdf file too.  Simply go to Print and select CutePDF as your printing option.  A dialogue box will appear and you can save your Wordle as pdf there: http://www.cutepdf.com

 

Wordles can be a fun homework activity too as many students enjoy being creative with them.

 

The Wordle pictured here is one I created in House colours from the revised behaviour expectations last summer for the school's new BfL policy. It is basic, but you can include much more detailed vocabulary and even copy a full text from which the Wordle generator will automatically enlarge the most frequently occuring words.
