Nice post on using corpora for ELT without being a corpus linguist or a tech whiz.

A nice introduction to corpora and concordance tools and how they are useful in teaching languages and, by extension, translation.

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.

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.

Not to mention, makes learning downright more enjoyable!

I have used Storytelling with 15-year olds!  They also loved it.  If you get your students to write their stories directed towards young children, it helps them to use simple vocabulary and structures which is great writing practice for them.  Afterwards they can share them on a wiki/blog/moodle site.  Very rich! I'm attaching two examples of my students' stories.

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!
