Using podcasts to develop listening skills: Sandy Millin

Using podcasts to develop listening skills: Sandy Millin | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
They are an excellent way to work on your, or your students’, listening skills, as you can listen to them as many times as you want to. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also manipulate files so that they are faster or slower, or so that you are only listening to an excerpt of the whole programme.

Listening Journals: Anthony teacher

Listening Journals: Anthony teacher | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Listening Journals are a project/concept I have been toying with for the past few years and have been putting into practice into all my listening classes. I have presented the idea to colleagues in numerous settings and the ideas have been well received.

The basic premise is that students need both extensive and intensive listening practice. Extensive listening practice involves students listening to interesting, enjoyable and meaningful listening texts at or around their level. Intensive listening practice, in terms of listening journals, is exploiting these texts to practice important bottom-up listening skills (e.g. decoding). The journals in their various permutations set students on weekly or daily listening tasks that involve both aspects of listening while giving them a space for metacognitive reflection.

Examples of how to implement this with learners, and links for listening practice

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, September 16, 2015 10:34 PM

This is a great idea to get students listening to English outside of class!  The possibilities are endless and having students share their journal entries in small groups would be a great way to get classmates to listen to other genres (book, news article, podcast, etc.).  This article includes several sites for students to use, some of them quite familiar and loved.

Vocabulary Exercises for the AWL

 

This site now contains 285 gap-fill exercises to review and recycle the general word families contained within the AWL. These exercises can be found on each Sublist page. Gap-fill exercises are an excellent way to recycle vocabulary through different contexts and can be used to broaden the student's understanding of the range of meaning of vocabulary. The online format of the exercises allows students to get immediate feedback on their answers. Students can work throughfive different exercises for each word family in the AWL. Many of these exercises include different derivations (parts of speech) for the given word. Students are encouraged to complete the exercises for a given level before proceeding to the next level.

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.
