Copyright on Campus - A Six Minute Exploration of the Nuances of Copyright

Copyright on Campus - A Six Minute Exploration of the Nuances of Copyright | TELT | Scoop.it

Richard Byrne says "Copyright and Fair Use are cloudy areas for many students and educators to try to navigate. This evening I found Copyright on Campus which is a six minute cartoon that does a nice job of explaining many of the nuances of copyright as it applies to educators. While the explanations are given for a collegiate setting they could be applied to K-12 too. The video is embedded below."

Now You're Cheating

Now You're Cheating | TELT | Scoop.it

Five of the following sentences are wrong. In pairs, identify which they are, and discuss why they are wrong. 

1.      You’re absolutely right! I am agreeing with you.

2.      I was writing a letter to my mum on the train, but I didn’t have time to finish it.

3.      She’s working as an au pair until she goes to university.

4.      We stay with our parents until the work on our house is done

5.      My grandfather is knowing how to text.

6.      Look. He talks to the linguistics professor.

7.      Peter is studying telecommunications at the moment

8.      These days mobile phones get smaller.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Funny, interesting post (and informed comments) about decontextualised grammar correction exercises.  When we did those UG-inspired "can you say this in your idiolect" tests when I was in grad school, it always boiled down to how much imagination and effort you were prepared to apply.  (Now we have corpora.)

Geoff Jordan: SLA Research - who cares?

Geoff Jordan: SLA Research - who cares? | TELT | Scoop.it

"2011 TESOL Spain talk on Second Language Acquisition and its possible implications for ELT. It was delivered by a guy called Geoff Jordan, who’s I’m delighted to announce is now the second guest poster I’ve had here. Geoff has lived in Spain since 1981, working at ESADE, Barcelona for 28 years, first as a language teacher and then as Director of Studies. Since 2004, he’s been freelance, doing English immersion courses from home, working with post-doctoral students at the Universitat Politecnica de Barcelona and on the Distance Learning MA in AL and TESOL programme at Leicester University. Geoff also has his own blog, aimed particularly at those doing postgraduate work in Applied Linguistics, but surely of interest to anyone involved in teaching EFL."  Hugh Dellar

L’autonomie en question(s) : Jean-Jacques Quintin

L’autonomie en question(s) : Jean-Jacques Quintin | TELT | Scoop.it
Quelles sont les incidences, pour l’enseignant, d’une volonté affirmée de développer l’autonomie de ses étudiants ? Nous nous proposons d’approcher cette question sur le plan de la conception et celui de l’accompagnement dans une double perspective complémentaire, celle de l’agir compétent situé et celle offerte par l’approche socio-constructiviste. Elle nous amènera à nous interroger, du côté de l’enseignant, de l’apprenant ou des pairs, sur la place et le rôle de l’étayage, des stratégies d’apprentissage, sociales et affectives en particulier, de la motivation intrinsèque ainsi que du travail collaboratif dans le développement de l’autonomie.
