oTranscribe

oTranscribe | TELT | Scoop.it
A free HTML5 app to take the pain out of transcribing interviews. Useful for journalists, academics and anyone else transcribing audio. And it's open source, too.
Shona Whyte's insight:

I've been using the German F4/F5 (Transcriptions for Mac) - this looks like a worthy alternative to try out.

5 Free Video Converter Programs and Online Services

5 Free Video Converter Programs and Online Services | TELT | Scoop.it
A video converter converts one kind of video file to another. Here are several free video converter software programs and online video converters.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Having spent (wasted) more time than I'd like converting wmv to mp4, I'd like to recommend the PC version of Any Video Converter.  Truly free and easy, though it opens a number of browser ads after installation.  

 

Handbrake is also in the list, also free and easy from the Mac end, but I couldn't get iMovie or my Transcriptions programme to read the output. http://www.audiotranskription.de/english/english/transcription/more-software/transcriptions-mac

 

And Nathan Hall adds "I would also add Miro Video Converter to the list. It works really well and is available on most platforms http://www.mirovideoconverter.com"

Thanks Shona, whilst I haven't yet had the need to convert video, I've found (free) audio conversion programs like Switch really useful.

Peer Teaching: young learners

Peer Teaching: young learners | TELT | Scoop.it
Watch how you can use student peer teaching in your classroom to help all students become experts on topics. Peer teaching is a strategy that celebrates student strengths and address student learning gaps.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Pre-service secondary EFL teacher's choice of a classroom video to illustrate the value of homework.  In this short clip, we see how the teacher quickly corrects maths homework, then pairs students who correctly answered a question with ones who got it wrong.  Once a student understands the correct solution, he or she presents it to the class from the board.

 

My masters' student suggests this technique could work in EFL.

This question came up in training yesterday (in-service French secondary school teachers of English) and I think it's important to take care of these practical details (what and how) and well as broader issues of why ...

Phil Chappell's curator insight, December 1, 2013 6:25 PM

Video report on this project by Julie Snell. Data collected from 75 lessons; one of the main findings was successful attempt to import Discourse Genres from outside the classroom; resulted in extended student interactions; students interacting with each other; "non-pupil like interactional privileges"; sometimes led to narrowing of learning opportunities through distraction though; shifts in power relations; teachers have to plan carefully the talk that they want to occur. Dialogic teaching is multidimensional; one important dimension is the content of the talk rather than the form of the talk. Balancing content and social relations is key. Lots of other factors impact on classroom talk. Dialogic teaching raises tensions and dilemmas for teachers and students. Great 13 minute summary of an important study! Loads of relevance for ELT.
