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.

If you are looking for interesting ways for your students to develop their listening skills, try podcasts.  This article explains how and why to use podcasts.  The link in the article takes you to another article and several podcast sites are listed at the end of it.

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.

Marisa Constantinides says: "Technology has been a part of the syllabus for a long time, although it is true that many centres still opt not to train their candidates in its uses for the same reasons that trainees resist it: ignorance, lack of confidence, lack of conviction in its educational value and just plain shirking one’s duty as a trainer – in the same way that some teachers shirk their duty as teachers."

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Both high-tech innovations for learning and the inability of many schoolchildren to write well have been major talking points in educational circles for quite some time, but oddly enough, one may offer a solution to helping remedy the other.

 

There are a variety of tech tools and methods out there for teaching writing that can make the process easier and more fun for both teachers and students. While not every high-tech way of teaching writing will work for every class or every student, there’s enough variety that there’s bound to be something for everyone.

 

Here are a few tech-focused ways to help students learn grammar, essay-writing, and, most importantly, why good writing is so important to their futures.

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.

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!
