5 Steps To Turning Facebook Into A Spanish Learning Machine - Always Spanish – Unconventional Spanish tips and tricks for the lazy learner

5 Steps To Turning Facebook Into A Spanish Learning Machine - Always Spanish – Unconventional Spanish tips and tricks for the lazy learner | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
The trick is to turn Facebook into a virtual Latin America (or Spain, if you will) and use it to immerse yourself as deep into Spanish as it’s possible sitting in your living room. Why would you do that? Because the more you are subjected to a constant assault of the language, the quicker you learn to pick up the patterns and vocabulary without much in the way of studying. This is not to undermine the whole concept of actually ”studying“ Spanish; of course you’re not going to learn a language merely by sitting pretty listening to or reading stuff in it. What immersion does, instead, is it greatly accelerates the whole process for you. Synergy is the key here. Use every trick in the book in the right proportion and it’s impossible for the endeavor to fail.

VideoANT: A free video annotation tool

VideoANT: A free video annotation tool | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
I have used VideoANT for a number of things. Here are some ideas to get your started:

Bookmarking sections of the video: I mark the start of the section I would like my students to watch and add the questions in the ‘Content’ section of the annotation. Students then click on the time marker and watch that part of the video. They can then add their responses/answers by clicking on the ‘Respond’ button.
Video slideshows: Students make a screencast of their slide presentation and then share it with other students who can then comment on things. I encourage students to add ‘audience participation’ questions to their presentation so students can add comments using the annotation tool.
Mini lessons: I make a short video lesson and then post it for students to watch and add questions and even writing practice in the annotation.
Group projects: Students in groups watch the video separately, adding their comments so they can then come together in class to discuss their findings.
Transcripts: Some videos on YouTube have transcripts, but many don’t. You can add your own transcripts this way by adding your annotation before the text in the video.

My main aim is to show that poetry is a practical tool for language learners and not just literature students.

How are the words rotate and revolve used? Have a think, then read this description. Now using COCA-BYU let’s see if the description is supported and whether we can add anything to the picture painted by the Grammarist.

A nice example of how to use the COCA data base and corpus tools to support intuitions or assertions about actual use of similar words (rotate/revolve).  For advanced learners or teachers.
