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.

Links and reaction by blogger Adi Rajan to talk and resources on use of video for language teaching from British Council teacher Jamie Keddie.  I noticed a shift in ELT a while back from comprehension of language resources to production, mirroring the Web 1.0 to 2.0 move and encouraging more active and open-ended contributions from learners

Welcome to Lit2Go ETC

Welcome to Lit2Go ETC | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
Welcome
"Lit2Go is a free online collection of stories and poems in Mp3 (audiobook) format. An abstract, citation, playing time, and word count are given for each of the passages. Many of the passages also have a related reading strategy identified. Each reading passage can also be downloaded as a PDF and printed for use as a read-along or as supplemental reading material for your classroom."

Shona Whyte:
Mostly American out-of-copyright classics aimed at native-speakers, but well put together for teachers (transcript, reading level, word count) so usable for intermediate-plus teen or adult learners.

Web tool fosters practice in speaking, listening in a foreign language
Dave Dodgson, who teaches English as a foreign language to elementary school students in Turkey, has students use the web based tool Wetoku to create split screen video interviews. In this blog post, Dodgson shares a project in which his students used the tool to record, present and archive an interview related to the study of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." The tool allowed them valuable practice in speaking and listening in their non-native language.

Recommended authentic listening: podcasts for native-speaking teenagers, so suitable for more advanced learners, classified by topic.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, September 13, 2015 1:35 PM

Great resources for listening practice as well as for building background information outside of the textbook.  These podcasts could also be used for flipped classes.

Richard Garcia:
Here's a good site for those who care about speaking! Excellent service where people can share their communicative skills as native speakers of a language as they share a good time with someone else who is willing to learn that language through a videochat within the twinvox platform. Find peers and start sharing your skills and learning for free from someone else the language you want to learn. Good initiative, indeed!
