Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.

Susan's curator insight, March 20, 2013 3:46 AM

I have used Storytelling with 15-year olds!  They also loved it.  If you get your students to write their stories directed towards young children, it helps them to use simple vocabulary and structures which is great writing practice for them.  Afterwards they can share them on a wiki/blog/moodle site.  Very rich! I'm attaching two examples of my students' stories.

Great for students to make their own stories.

The author explains how technology can be used to achieve the goal of replicating an ESL environment by giving your students access to speaking, hearing, reading and writing English outside of the EFL classroom as much as is reasonable.

Memrise: Vocabulary learning tool

Memrise: Vocabulary learning tool | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Martin Burrett of ICT Magic says:

"An amazing language learning site which helps learners of MFL remember words for over 200 languages by associating them with visual clues/mnemonics and score points by showing you remember the language in a variety of ways. You can listen to audio of the words you are learning. The site tracks your progress and analyses where you need improvement and it will adjust the words you are shown accordingly."

 

Shona Whyte:

A very nicely designed site which allows you to hear words, read definitions, and test yourself as you go.  Lots of languages, including EFL. In terms of acquisition, what's missing is context, but it looks like teachers can create their own courses, so contextual cues and sample sentences could be supplied that way.
