This looks neat and could be great for tracking group project work. Shame it's only available for i-devices at the moment although an Android version is promised soon.

Pronounce Live

Pronounce Live | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Pronounce Live is a web application for pronunciation practice. You can listen to authentic speech models read any text or words, record your own voice for comparison and receive immediate feedback.

Color coding will mark words to focus on, and you also get an overall score for your pronunciation. Compete against yourself, the perfect score is only a syllable away!

Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a great  tool to get students working autonomously on their pronunciation. Even works for languages other than English.

Our hope is to then convert them into long-term distal outcomes, improving their lives:

Stories by ELLs

Stories by ELLs | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

In the past three years, co-creating projects of this caliber with Nathan, Rosana and other amazing educators; as well as working with ELLs with whom I started building strong bonds; nurtured the seed that was planted in the writing class. We were unknowingly becoming part of our ELLs’ stories of finding their identity and voices in English. The opportunities they were having to connect with the language were having a direct impact on them not just as learners but as human beings. ELL Stories were being lived and experienced right before us, waiting to be told.

Nik Peachey's insight:

This site is still a bit thin on content but looks like a marvelous idea especially for TESOL students.

visual literacy (and English) through comics
Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, May 1, 8:24 PM
I love using comics with my English language learners!  I confess that I haven't used them the way this article has.  Click on the link below the comic and you will be directed to a lesson plan all ready to go.  I've used comics for sequencing (cut them up and students put them back in order based on the dialogue) and have covered up all the words so students have to write their own dialogues.  Try one of these ideas from the article or from me soon!
