This is the website for a 2008-9 European project involving virtual communities in different Romance languages (French, Spanish, Italian, Catalan, Portuguese and Romanian).  There are ten modules on different topics (films to see, recipes, draw your life) which could easily still be used in the classroom.

Where The Wild Things Are

Film project of Where The Wild Things Are.

 

Why is no-one watching this? (70 views on YouTube, no likes.) Excellent animation of Maurice Sendak's children's classic, making it accessible to young EFL learners.

 

How can you beat this for an ending - the child who misbehaved and was sent to his room, imagined exhilarating adventures and then

 

"sailed back over a year and in and out of weeks and through a day and into the night of his very own room, where he found his supper waiting for him and it was still hot."

Web 2.0 Guru - Web 2.0 Resources

Web 2.0 Guru - Web 2.0 Resources | TELT | Scoop.it

Too many tools to even summarise, so probably a little daunting for novices.  I could imagine using this in teacher training, setting groups to explore different types of tools, identify their affordances for the language classroom, and design learning activities to exploit them.

Word Carrot | Teachers

Word Carrot | Teachers | TELT | Scoop.it

This is a good-looking new site for young EFL learners.  It focuses on mobile learning devices and features apps that are not free. If this isn't a problem for you, then you will find lots of apps and teaching applications here.

 

The learners I work with and train for are not equipped or funded for m-learning, but I do like the teaching ideas and there are attractive, simple worksheets which are free to download.

 

(And the day I get a classroom set of iPads I'll know where to start.)

Computers and learner autonomy: trends and issues | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC

Computers and learner autonomy: trends and issues | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | TELT | Scoop.it

Huw Jarvis has just published this research report on computers and learner autonomy, free to download from the British Council TeachingEnglish site.

 

The blurb "This paper reports on a study conducted by Huw Jarvis into the perceptions and practices of Thai and Emirati university students in the use of computer-based materials beyond the classroom. It explores how these students use technology to support their English language learning and offers recommendations for institutions that provide self-access centres. The paper concludes that the term mobile assisted language use may better describe how learners use technology." 

 

And the conclusion (spoiler warning)

 

"The study has provided a number of useful,
relevant insights into current trends and issues.
Above all perhaps, it has demonstrated that learners in L1 contexts make use of CbMs* not only through conscious learning, but also as a rich source of authentic material which arguably facilitates unconscious acquisition. They bring English, the dominant language of technology, into their everyday lives in numerous ways; such a trend is clearly likely to be continued with other mobile devices. This suggests new issues and opportunities for developing autonomy amongst NNS, the majority of whom, like the participants in this study, learn and acquire the English language in their home country, and with historically unprecedented access to CbMs
which help, to varying degrees, in their endeavours."

"Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus"

"This is an adaptation of Mo Willem's great children's book that was created to demonstrate how to do animation with Adobe Flash. It is solely for educational purposes"

 

Luckily these are the only kind of purposes I have, because this is such a great story for young learners - emotions, language of persuasion, chunks (don't let x do y).

Six things about Pecha Kucha ELT

Six things about Pecha Kucha ELT | TELT | Scoop.it

ELT teacher, trainer and materials writer Lindsay Clandfield has this short introduction to Pecha Kucha, a short-and-sweet presentation format (20 slides, 20 seconds per slide), which he says helps avoid "death by powerpoint" at conferences and in the classroom. 

 

There's a link to his dedicated Pecha Kucha ELT site where you can see videos of events at IATEFL conferences in 2008 and 2009.
