Shona Whyte's curator insight, July 13, 2013 9:10 AM

Some of my slides from today's talk about how the French teachers in the iTILT project (http://itilt.eu) used the IWB to teach English, including a tentative teacher development framework related to Beauchamp (2004), findings from our CALL paper to appear later this month, and a foretaste of further work with Euline Cutrim Schmid on interactional opportunities with the IWB, including video communication.

Not specific to language learners, but succinct coverage of essential issues in bite-sized chunks (digital identity, copyright and plagiarism, personal learning networks) which will be useful to teachers and learners alike.

16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read

16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

"For every kid who is caught hiding beneath his covers with a flashlight and a novel at midnight, there is another who has to be begged and pleaded with to read.  And the latter might need a little extra—shall we call it encouragement?—to become a great reader. To help, we've rounded up a list of the top apps that not only teach essential reading skills but also motivate kids—even the most book-phobic—to read, read and read some more."
