Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, November 29, 2015 6:27 PM

This article gives very good insight to using mobile devices in language teaching and how it extends lessons outside of the classroom.  It offers a few practical lesson examples, comments from English language learners who use their mobile devices to help them learn English, and words of caution for teachers considering incorporating the use of mobile devices in their teaching.

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning | Tech and the ESL Teacher | Scoop.it

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.

34 experts offer their tips for how to speak English fluently

34 experts offer their tips for how to speak English fluently | Tech and the ESL Teacher | Scoop.it

The Internet is teeming with suggestions, instructions, and procedures for how to speak fluent English. It’s overwhelming for learners and teachers to try to make sense of it all.
It’s especially difficult to know if the source of information is a person you can trust, someone with extensive knowledge and experience in English language teaching.
To cut through the noise, I asked a number of the world’s leading language learning experts for their opinions. These are people I have been following, collaborating with, and learning from over the course of my 15-year career.

Corpkit: a tool for investigating text | Tech and the ESL Teacher | Scoop.it

It does a lot of the usual things, like parsing, concordancing and keywording, but also extends their potential significantly: you can concordance by searching for combinations of lexical and grammatical features, and can do keywording of lemmas, of subcorpora compared to corpora, or of words in certain positions within clauses.
