Film English

Film English | Technology, ELT and Student Centred Teaching | Scoop.it

The site promotes the innovative and creative use of film in language learning. All of the lesson plans revolve around the use of video and film to teach English. The site promotes cineliteracy, the ability to analyse moving images, and considers cineliteracy as a 21st century skill which our students need to learn.

This is more and more important. Increasingly students are viewing stories and need to develop the skills to analyze what they see. A useful resource.

Le principe est génial ! 

Vous lisez un texte en anglais (n'importe quel texte trouvé sur le web qui vous intéresse), vous cliquez sur les mots difficiles pour avoir une traduction immédiate, puis vous pouvez réviser les mots sélectionnés !

Ce n'est pas très ludique mais très efficace.

En plus, c'est gratuit...

 

Adapté pour adultes et collégiens ...

Hey, Steve here, creator of Readlang. Very happy to see it shared here! It is already somewhat mobile friendly, in that the design adapts to smaller screens, and I use it on my iPad all the time. I hope eventually to develop iOS and Android applications too.
Patricia Daniels's curator insight, June 4, 2013 9:35 AM

Students, I've just tested this myself and it's a useful tool. Apparently it's also becoming more mobile compatible, which will be a postive development. There's an introduction video so watch it first and see if it's a tool that you'll put to use. I've added the extension to Chrome.

 

You can upload webpages for reading and if you're unsure of a word, click on it for the translation. This will appear in your word bank as a flashcard with some text ( this provides you with the context which is an intelligent feature). You can then run through your list of flashcards and learn the words. Remember to put them in context when you are doing your practice as this will help you retain them.

 

Try it for yourself.

How Mind Maps Can Inspire Collaborative Learning

How Mind Maps Can Inspire Collaborative Learning | Technology, ELT and Student Centred Teaching | Scoop.it
Some of the most popular tools that are revolutionizing the educational field and not only are the so called “collaborative learning tools”.

 

If your main educational purpose is to increase student involvement and collaboration, then you may want to consider a mind mapping application as a collaborative learning tool option.

 

What are the benefits of using a mind mapping tool for your teaching activity?

 

A mind mapping tool creates the right context where students can develop their critical thinking, creativity, independent thought process and teamwork skills.

 

When engaging in collaboration using a mind mapping software, there are several benefits that have a great impact on the learner as he interacts with others and discovers different ways of managing new information and content:

 

easy management of content

flexibility in organizing new ideas

collaborative learning at a distance

visible tracking of students’ activity

real time group collaboration

Social media in higher education: Pros, cons, and overall impact

Social media in higher education: Pros, cons, and overall impact | Technology, ELT and Student Centred Teaching | Scoop.it
Once regarded as a passing fad, social media is now an essential language that today’s college students—and officials—must learn in order to remain relevant and well-informed.

 

The University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth Center for Marketing Research recently surveyed numerous four-year accredited U.S. colleges and universities to assess the use of social media in higher education.  The survey infograph illustrates how universities use social media in multiple ways and shows social media’s surge in popularity in the last three academic years.

 

The infograph also listed the three greatest successes and challenges to using social media in higher education.

 

Most administrators agree that safe communities created within social media—how professors can link students to course materials via monitored virtual environments—is a positive movement. Social media also encourages collaboration among students and professors, and it gives them opportunities to produce good content and further market a university’s unique fingerprint and identity.
